However, I like to recommend that people start first with GAPS Guide (Simple Steps to Heal Bowels, Body and Brain) because the author breaks it down into easy steps to help you get started. The author also shares her own story, and another fantastic success story. I had heard about GAPS on the Nourishing Traditions forum I participated in, but did not think it was something I needed for myself as the main focus is autistic children. But then my husband was diagnosed with a digestive disorder and I had heard that GAPS addresses digestive disorders as well, so I ordered the books and began to study. As I read, I realized that my own issues could be addressed by embarking on the GAPS diet. I have been on GAPS for 90 days now, and have seen some great improvements to my health. Since my wild cravings are gone now that I'm avoiding all processed foods, I have lost weight. My blood sugar has stabilized and I'm not feeling those horrible shaky moments when I get hungry, and can wait longer to eat. My feet have stopped hurting, I can sleep 8-9 hours without waking up with a terrible backache in the morning, I'm thinking more clearly and my mild depression has lifted.Read more ›
Yet it's sold at $1 less than the original book. I thought it might be a less scholarly re-framing of the original, more easily digestible, appropriately enough, but no -- it's just notes I could take myself. No contribution. It contains many abbreviations ("SCD" for example) and nowhere, not even in a footnote, are they explained.
In addition, it's full of British-isms. Recipe items are listed in grams and liters, and one instructs you to add "tonnes of vegetables". They didn't bother to edit for an American edition.
I'm livid. I was duped into paying $30 for this book, and it's absolutely nothing but a rip-off of the real book, and of the customer.
When I first tried the diet it was so helpful but then I bought all the recomended books BIG mistake (non were at my local book store or library. so I bought site unseen - I have found so many free blogs with better actual information. I highly suggest the GAPS intro diet just go to the website and stick with it don't confuse your self with this non-sense. I hope that as more people find help through it someone will actually put out an easy helpful guide, till then don't waste your $$$ and the trees it was printed on.

The GAPS diet is complicated to sort out, or seems so because there is so much information to take in. This book helps put the diet into steps that are easy to follow.Published on February 3, 2013 by Tracy Reynolds
