I have only recently heard of the GAPS diet, and I'm curious if any of you know anything about it? Tried it? Do it? Safe while pregnant (mostly just the beginning/intro phase, is it enough calories--given I'm just weeks from the 3rd trimester, I wouldn't want to be way under in calories). Any tips?
I'm very interested in it!
I've heard of it, but don't know too much about it. I think that it would severely limit your diet, since I'm pretty sure you have to cut out most foods for the first stage.
This would be a good question for the allergies forum. You should head over there and see what they say - theyre pretty good.

I've been doing GAPS for the last few months to improve my gut flora - it's strict and difficult to keep up with all of the cooking . . . but my husband and I have never felt better! And we didn't have any major health problems. There are a couple of yahoo groups, lots of websites, you could start with looking up Natasha Campbell McBride, she's wrote the GAPS book and has done a ton of interviews you could find on youtube. GAPS is broken into 'Intro' and 'Full Gaps', you shouldn't do intro while pregnant or nursing but Full Gaps is a very healthy way to eat while you're pregnant or nursing. Good luck!
