Joy with some home-canned goodness Lately people have been asking us for where to go to get good information and support for the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet . This diet is aimed at restoring the health of the gut, and the balance of the bacteria and fungi that live there. By giving the gut a chance to heal, many health problems can be reduced or eliminated. GAPS was based on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which eliminates disaccharide and polysaccharide sugars and introduces readily digested, nutrient dense foods. GAPS takes it few steps further by introducing these nourishing foods in a phased approach, focusing more on probiotic foods , and introducing a detoxification protocol .

Raw Food Diet
Low Glycemic Load Diet
Controlling blood sugar is key to weight loss and reduced risk of certain diseases. Eating a low Glycemic Load diet is one method to manage blood sugar. Studies show those foods which have the greatest impact on blood sugar levels are carbohydrate foods; however, certain carbohydrates have more of an impact on blood sugar than others. Slow-acting carbs only cause a slight increase in blood sugar. Fast-acting carbs, on the other hand, are converted very quickly to glucose by the body, causing blood sugar levels to rise and fall rapidly, which has serious health consequences. One way used to measure how carbohydrate foods affect blood sugar levels is by a food's Glycemic Load.
Nutrition Data's Estimated Glycemic Load (eGL)™ predicts a food's Glycemic Load, even when its Glycemic Index is unknown. Understanding Glycemic Load The Glycemic Load is the most practical way to apply the Glycemic Index to dieting, and is easily calculated by multiplying a food's Glycemic Index (as a percentage) by the number of net carbohydrates in a given serving.
