The Dark Side of AIP- 1 year YouTube Anniversary THROWBACK!

It’s my 1 year on YouTube anniversary! (Well, tomorrow is…) Here’s the first video I uploaded, it has been private until now- for good reason😂

In this video I talk about uncomfortable social circumstances that stem from being on AIP:
Questions people ask.
Dating on AIP!
Starting a new job while on AIP,
Going out to eat on AIP and more.

Patreon also has a cool feature called “Lens”- it’s very similar to Snapchat. I use it most days to take clips of my meals, grocery hauls, recipe development and other behind-the-scenes stuff and it’s free to the public, you don’t have to be a patron to view the clips. You can find those here!:

Find me in the AIP Certified Coach Directory:

Do you have an autoimmune disease like Alopecia, Arthritis, MS, Celiac, Hashimoto’s, Psoriasis, Grave’s disease, Crohn’s, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, Type 1 diabetes, Myasthenia Gravis, Addison’s, Endometriosis, Fibromyalgia or Chronic Lyme disease??

Do you have Leaky gut? Brain fog? Fatigue? IBS? Multiple food intolerances? Vague undiagnosed health problems?

The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, aka AIP has proven potential to reduce your symptoms and even put you into remission!

I’m Stacey. I’m an ACE certified Health Coach and P.T. as well as a Certified AIP coach through Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt’s practitioner program. (And bartender/ bar & restaurant manager by night :))

I put my celiac, leaky gut, & chronic fatigue into full remission with AIP. I have also suffered from alopecia, anxiety and brain fog which I controlled through diet and lifestyle changes. I feel better now in my 40’s than I ever have in my life!

I started AIP in November 2015 and have learned so much on my journey that I want to share with you!

(I have since been able to reintroduce some nuts, seeds, seed- based spices, etc but I keep my YouTube recipes 100% AIP elimination phase compliant!)

I do AIP without a dishwasher or oven (or microwave!) and on a budget with very little spare time.

Subscribe to my channel for new videos every Thursday full of AIP recipes and cooking tutorials, lifestyle inspiration and easy-to-digest information in layman’s terms. You will also find these videos helpful if you are on the Wahl’s Protocol, Bulletproof Diet, Pegan diet or Whole30.

Disclaimers: I am not a doctor. My goal is to provide inspiration for how to implement the Autoimmune Protocol after you have personally made the decision to try it.

Always work with your physician when making dietary changes that could affect current health conditions, medications, etc. Find a functional physician:

Refer to Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s book “The Paleo Approach” if you would like scientific explanations and references on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol.
