I'm so glad you started this thread, Trisch! I confess, my family wants no part of this plan. They still want me to make them bread, etc... So, I am interested in doing this for me, first...and then incorporating as much as possible for my family. I understand that for them it wouldn't really be GAPS, but it would be a step in the right direction. My NP suggested SCD, and I've been doing quite a bit of that, but, again I confess, not 100%. I have been consuming copious amounts of bone broths (have a HUGE pot on the stove simmering as we speak) along with many other ideas from SCD to see if it would be something that I could really do.
Last night I had a terrible night stomach wise. I was really sick! And I didn't eat any gluten. Did have some dairy, but did take 2 lactaids before. Obviously something isn't right here. I think that I am ready to do this right. While I feel so much better than I did now that I am GF, I still have much room for improvement. I will be watching this thread very carefully.
Thanks for all the links!
Former T-Tapp Success Story...Lost over 52 inches and over 20 lbs 5 years ago.
Fell off the bandwagon due to personal and health reasons (at least I let those become my excuses.) Medications have helped me gain weight rapidly.
Update: As of 1/10/15 I have gained all my weight and inches back. Keeping it real. I am choosing now to regain my life back.
