What triggers your discomfort?

I recently finished the Whole30 (plus a bit), coming from a semi-paleo diet (no flour or sugar) and have begun experimenting with reintroducing some borderline foods (yogurt, cheese, white rice). Unfortunately, I loosened other parts of my diet as well, so some other little cheats have snuck in. For example, I had white rice at dinner after a 1.5 hour row, but I also had some canned whipped cream. Another day, I had a few sips of milkshake in the afternoon, and some yogurt and cottage cheese later in the day. Both times I had digestive issues. On other days, I've had equal amounts of dairy or starchy carb with no noticeable effects.

My question is this: how much non-paleo food does it take to affect you? Does a small amount do it, or does it take a whole meal/day of off eating?

I think they do that to make it thicker.

I was amazed to learn that manufacturers add powdered milk into the yogurt and thus increase the lactose content. Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it? I wonder why they'd do that.

These days, a tiny amount of wheat in anything makes me a bit ill for 2 or 3 days. When I feel like a cheat I have some rice and poppadoms with my curry, but I have to forget about the naan bread...or else! :)

Just one. However I would guess a reaction to lactose in dairy and store bought yogurt. That is the first think I would try. There is often a lactose amount that can be tolerated after which problems are noticed.
