“Look, this whole food freedoming is hard work, and you’re not going to get it right all the time,” acknowledges Hartwig. “You’re trying to overwrite decades of less-healthy habits and associations with food, and even if you are conscientious about it, you’ll still make the wrong call from time to time. When that happens, don’t beat yourself up, and don’t make it worse by saying “what the hell” and eating your way through Aisle 7,” she says.
