I drink pure filtered water both from the fridge dispenser and the BRITA kettle. Sometimes I drink mint tea to relieve bloating as it is a digestive aid...

I'll definetley cut down on the fluids. Today I have about one carton of fruit juice and one cup of tea. That's probably enough.
I did read the article by Neckhammer and it's very much how I feel.
"So what is a "problematic fixation" with eating healthy food? For some folks, it has a meaning similar to too much masturbation… someone who thinks about it or practices it more than you do. But like all psychiatric conditions the cardinal issue is that the obsession interferes with normal functioning or relationships or causes pathology, such as anxiety. If you don't have celiac disease or a serious gluten intolerance and going to a family party causes you great anxiety because you are worried that Uncle Brad cut the cucumbers with the same knife he used to slice the bread, you might have a problem."
This is definitely me. I really do avoid situations where I can't control the food, like family BBQ's. I'm always exposed to this "low carb" paradigm which I've probably taken too far without realising that further restriction = less health ultimately. (I love how many nutrients, antioxidants and phytochemicals are in berry fruit juices!)
I've cut out way too much food and food groups. For instance if I say "I eat vegetables" that excluded FODMAPS and nightshades which are a wide variety. Same with fruit although I'm really enjoying that now! Dairy hasn't been a part of my diet for about 4 years either. Last dairy I had was goats milk yoghurt which made me fee; "hungover" so to speak. This is why I now have a limited variety of food because I try things for a few days and then never eat them again.
I'm going to try some goat cheese this week and see how that is. I also made some jello with great lakes gelatin and blueberries + fruit juice. I like that and might try cream/ice cream with it. Not "ideal" ice cream but still.

Dry food would just he food with less water content. If you feel cold eat some potatoes or similar. Heavily salted.
