GAPS Stage 3

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT GAPS STAGE 3

Stage 3 continues the deep healing present in the beginning of the Intro Diet with a few delicious additions. When you’ve made it to Stage 3, it shows that your body has done quite a bit of healing already. Don’t rush moving beyond this stage as deep healing is still happening.

Stage 3 adds foods that are a little more complicated to digest, including fermented vegetable pieces, avocados, and scrambled eggs. This adds raw, uncooked, fermented, and fried foods to your diet. You will not be able to tolerate these foods well until a certain amount of healing has been completed in your body.

HOW LONG DOES STAGE 3 OF THE GAPS DIET LAST?

You should stay on this stage for a minimum of five days and until major intestinal symptoms have disappeared. The number of days you are on Stage 3 is dependent on your individual symptoms.

Do not rush the first three stages! These are the powerhouse healing stages!
