Why do Leap now (of all times)?
Are you ready to begin? www.nutritionandhealthworks.com/2weeks
I hear all kinds of reasons not to do Leap for your autoimmune issue.
Let's do a twist and talk about why now is one of the best times to do MRT (mediator release test) and the Leap diet with a trained autoimmune dietitian.
You are eating out less now.
During the first part of the diet, it is more difficult to eat out and stick closely to the diet. This reason, you will be eating out less because you are staying home more. This can help you stay on track with less of a temptation of restaurant foods that may contain ingredients that you are reactive to. The reduction of symptoms within the first 10 to 14 days are very much worth the "sacrifice" of not eating out.
You are staying at home with time to prep healthy foods
You are at home to reduce the exposure to other people. This gives you extra time - at home - to fix recipes and foods from your first phase of the diet. Before you know it, the first 10 to 14 days will have passed, and you will notice you have fewer symptoms.
There are still healthy food choices you can obtain from many grocery stores
The stores still have food choices that you can use while planning your recipes and meals. The options still available are fresh, frozen, and canned. Definitely your dietitian/coach can help with recipe ideas and in a lot of cases, where to go to buy the foods.
The Leap diet may help to reduce anxiety and depression
Your GI tract is very connected to your emotions. Your gut sends signals to the brain and can cause anxiety, stress, and depression. The Leap diet is focused on healing the gut, along with other areas of the body, that are triggered by food sensitivities. Many people report less anxiety and depression by 10 to 14 days of following the diet.
You will obtain personal support during this otherwise stressful time
You don't do this alone! Your Leap therapist is there to provide support, encouragement, and ideas as you work together. This is an ongoing relationship that is meant to help you at each stage of the Leap diet. You will feel better in as little as 10 to 14 days. You will have a coach to provide encouragement, recipes, and other needed resources.
