Where do I start with GAPS?

One of the questions we are frequently asked is, “Where do I start with GAPS? It feels so overwhelming, I don’t know where to begin!”. There seems to be both a knowledge barrier and an emotional barrier when GAPS is considered, and many are overwhelmed just at the thought. Our belief is that just by considering GAPS, you’ve already started your GAPS journey. In other words, GAPS begins when you start exploring the diet, getting educated on gut health, and when you start making little changes to the way you eat to be more in line with the GAPS principals. This is a guide for you to make the transition to GAPS as easy as possible.
