I think the clue is in your OP. "So I'm going to try it again".

If it really worked, you wouldn't need to try it again because it would become a permanent part of your lifestyle. There would be no "again".

Not wanting to be discouraging at all! But just my opinion that dietary and lifestyle changes need to be sustainable for life.

Low carbs gave you an eating disorder, uncontrolled cravings, binge eating , weight back on, and you want to do it all over again?
Don't @Canthinkofaname79

Any restrictive diet in your current state of mind is not going to work.
I feel your pain and I am saying this with kindness and care, you are going to be worse off if you don't step away from this.

I would suggest you try Zoe . There is a discussion going on here , they often share referral codes to shorten the waiting list.
You will wear a glucose monitor for a couple of weeks, and learn how your body react to different food and there is guidance on what to eat for optimal metabolic health focusing on the quality of the food and not their calories.

In the meantime, focus on what you give your body and not what on what you are going to deprive it of.

So for example , this week, it will be a new vegetable every day, something you have never eaten before or haven''t eaten in a long time. Why not try to have a high fibre breakfast, so a couple tablespoons of flaxseeds and a few more of rolled oats, and then blueberries or 1 date. Do you think l have at least 2 portions of fermented foods every day, can be a glass of kombucha, kefir or if you want to be adventurous, kimchi or Natto.

By increasing the foods that nourish you, you will automatically remove those who are triggering for you. Give it 7 days .

Where on earth does the OP actually say this @MatchaTea?!

Low carbs gave you an eating disorder, uncontrolled cravings, binge eating , weight back on, and you want to do it all over again?
