I started GAPS 3 days ago and it didn't go well and have stopped for now. The problem was every time I ate the soup, I would instantly get extreme bloating and my body just refused to digest. Someone suggested that I have Hypochlorhydria and I think they are correct. I am working with a TCM practitioner to fix my stomach problems but they do not want me taking any supplements or probiotics during the herbal treatment.
I also became constipated very quickly on the diet and have spoken to others who claim the same thing and they are 16 days to many months into the diet. You can add juice in stage 2 but in stage 1 there is nothing to help.
