It's surprising when you look it over because I'm way more primal and less paleo. I'll eat any damned fattened up meat I want, you hear me?!

According to that I'm somewhere between GAPS and Primal.

He went on the website, not went on the diet.

Define "just." Also, what do you eat?

The GAPS diet was designed to heal intestinal function. It is a specially designed protocol of food consumption that is meant to be followed very closely. It has many different stages and at each stage you are instructed to eat specific types of foods and supplements, such as meat broth, ferments and probiotics, and not eat others, such as grains. You only move on to the next stage when your body is ready (could be a few weeks, could be months). The maintenance stage at the end does closely resemble Paleo in the sense that it is a grain-free diet that emphasizes whole foods and bans or restricts most industrial-processed foods, preservatives etc. It is different by allowing legumes and some dairy (such as low carb cheeses), although many Paleo/Primal folks still eat cheese.

It is a fabulous diet for people who need to heal their guts, especially if their guts are in really bad shape and can't be healed by the Paleo diet alone. Many people go through GAPS for healing then switch to a Paleo diet for their maintenance stage. The two diets also combine very well.
