“If you have been doing a lot of work to change your gut health or your eating habits, you’ve probably discovered what just feels better for you. And so you already have some boundaries that you’re not willing to cross. Not because you’re trying to be good, but because it just doesn’t feel good. ” – Elissa Arnheim
