My husband and I both understand the carb fear. We've been very careful to add carbs back very slowly. And we still aren't eating anything (never will again we hope, at least intentionally!) anything at all made with high fructose corn syrup or enriched flours.
Slow is the key, I think. We add a few things (last week I added some noodles made with brown rice flour for lunch twice a week, for instance) each week and see if they seem to work for us. The next week I'll add something else new, and soon I'll have a rotation of things I might consider on any given day.
Other than veggies though we don't eat more than a single serving of Phase-1-forbidden carbs most days. At least not yet.
