I have been working through anxiety,and IBS for years. Once I did the program I was amazed to see how much better I felt once I knew exactly what foods to focus on in my diet.


For me, getting rid of barley was a major shift in my life! I was able to get through a workday without missing a beat for the first time in a very long time, not to mention feeling calmer and having more control of my social anxiety. Thank you so much! 



Thank you to Dr. Ricciardi. It has been an amazing life changing experience working with her. Although I thought I was eating healthy, after working with Dr. Ricciardi I was able to identify that just because a food is good for you it was in fact not good for me. After just 1 month of the program I began to feel less bloating, less upset GI and with some exercise I actually lost 10 lbs and began to feel like myself again. I would highly recommend that everyone should consult with Dr. Ricciardi and learn how she can help you!



Make no mistake, the first week was extremely difficult. The moon and stars lined up to test me severely. I had just gotten diagnosed with anemia, I had also just returned from a European trip and was suffering jet lag and of course the no caffeine during the first few weeks about did me in. The fatigue was crushing. However, because I was desperate and already seeing results, I gutted it out (no pun intended). I am now in month 4 and have only had diarrhea 5 times. Each occasion was when I was adding something back in. Compared to 15-20 episodes daily this seems like a miracle. I have more energy and I have lost 18 pounds so far. There are things I miss, sure, but the benefits far outweigh the negatives. For most things I miss, I have gotten creative and come up with good substitutes. It has all gotten a lot easier and I plan on staying very close to my current eating program.For anyone suffering gut issues, I encourage them try the MRT testing and LEAP protocol. I only wish I had discovered this many years and pounds ago. Good luck to all in regaining their lives.



Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance in putting my life back together. Before I started, I was desperate and that is not an exaggeration. I had gained a ton of weight, felt terrible and spent what seems like half my life in the bathroom. I suffered from IBS, diverticulitis, GERD, a hiatal hernia and constant fatigue. With all of that misery, it's no surprise that depression was nipping at my heels. I worked out 3 - 4 days a week with a personal trainer and got 3-4 days in of good cardio but the scale wouldn't budge. I consulted doctors in both western medicine and eastern medicine including specialists. I even consulted another dietitian. It's probably no surprise that the doctors wanted to write prescriptions.



I'm a pretty healthy person, but I couldn't figure out what was causing my skin rash, UNPREDICTABLE diarrhea, nasal congestion. I was sick of the steroid creams that didn't seem to be working that well and the unxpected, urgent  trips to the bathroom. When I found out that food could be a cause, I was intrigued. I wish I did this sooner. Making a few changes to the foods that I am eating and my skin is SO much better, I'm not congested and I'm no longer running to the bathroom! Thank you. I'm relieved to know what foods were aggravating me.
