I followed the GAPS diet for about 18 months.  My kids and husband ate GAPS for about 6 months.  It wasn’t a “cure-all,” but our day-to-day health and bodily functions definitely improved by eating this way.  We don’t follow GAPS exclusively anymore, but we definitely incorporate what we learned into our daily eating habits.  To say GAPS helped me identify food’s role in our family’s health and taught me about real food is the honest truth.
