Truth — It used to be a bit of a hunt to find good grain-free food. NOT anymore. Like to have a cookbook that you can hold in your hands? Here are a few great ones that are either GAPS specific, or adaptable. These energy-providing, whole-food carbohydrates come packaged with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, fat…the whole package, and NOT low carb. For a full list of GAPS foods download this list. Truth — If that happens initially, there is a reason. The question is, will you listen to your honest body now that you can hear it, or will you ignore it? To quote Dr.
They think they just have to avoid the foods they are allergic to, and that they will never heal. Did you know that Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome, recommends properly prepared whole grains once the gut is healed? I personally believe that if you do GAPS, you should not count carbs or restrict carbs in any way. Especially if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you want to get pregnant. He also says that low carb depresses thyroid function and eating a higher carb diet will help your thyroid function better. This means that eating more carbs raises T3 levels, and eating fewer carbs lowers T3 levels. For a hypothyroid person, then, eating more carbs is an alternative tactic for increasing thyroid hormone activity. It may provide symptomatic relief similar to that achieved by supplementing thyroid hormone directly. Many most? GAPS patients have low adrenal and thyroid function. So in order to heal, we should not be restricting carbs.
All the best Cassiel. Hi there! McBride for the use of the GAPS diet either before, during or after the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. But am worried, how much should someone eat nuts or baked nut flour items? It is more difficult to fully utilize the GAPS Protocol and heal, while still maintaining vegetarianism, but not entirely impossible. Nicole — when you talk about fruits, honey, etc. I still have a low appetite and tend to eat low carb, partly because I have a belief that carbs are bad. Do you still have a leaky gut?

Thanks for the info, Melanie!
