Could you explain "animal fat causes glycogen to be produced"?
You mean glucagon, not glycogen. Glucagon is a hormone produced by the liver inresponse to consumption of fat and animal protein. This hormone works in opposition toinsulin. Insulin is the ‘master fat-storage’ hormone in the body, as long as you have toomuch insulin in your blood you will store everything you eat as fat. Insulin dominance inthe body is the cause of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and many other modernmaladies. Why do people have insulin dominance? Because of consuming processedcarbohydrates: bread (including sandwiches), breakfast cereals, sugar, soft drinks, snacksand sweets, etc. These carbohydrates stimulate production of too much insulin. In Natureeverything works as a union of opposites: to oppose insulin our bodies produce glucagon.Glucagon is a ‘master fat-burning’ hormone, it mobilizes your own body fat to be usedfor energy production. When your body starts producing glucagon you lose excessweight, your body assumes its natural healthy shape, and the risks of diabetes, heartdisease and cancer are removed. To produce glucagon you need to eat plenty of animalfat and protein: meat, fish, eggs and good quality dairy products.

 For a young child, is there an intake limit of the amount of protein and amount of fat they should be taking before it becomes too much or detrimental to their health? If so,what is a safe range?
You cannot artificially calculate how much protein, fat or anything else to eat. Don’t eventry it, as you will create more trouble than good for your body. As long as protein comesas a natural freshly cooked piece of meat, or fish, or fresh egg or diary product, yourchild’s body will know how to handle it. Provide your child with plenty of vegetables togo with these foods and trust his or her instincts to get the proportions right. Please, readmore about it in
ONE MAN’S MEAT IS ANOTHER MAN’S POISON 
in the “Resources”section.The idea of calculating and limiting protein consumption comes from situations whereproteins do not digest properly, absorb in a mal-digested form and cause autoimmunereactions, kidney problems and food allergies. This situation is due to the fact that the gutlining is damaged and porous. This leaky gut wall lets through improperly digestedproteins. Focus on healing and sealing the gut wall with the GAPS Introduction Diet,rather than waste your time on forever calculating and limiting protein consumption.
We grow stevia. Is stevia that is fresh from the plant or dried allowed on the diet? Also, I plan to do canning from my garden - will this be okay on the diet?
A bit of fresh stevia herb is OK, as any edible herbs. But I don’t recommend processedstevia used as a sweetener. We simply don’t know enough about it yet. Doing your ownpreserves at home is great, just use allowed ingredients.
Can GAPS help a young child with Tourette? Are there any foods they may be particularly sensitive to?
Yes, GAPS Protocol helps people with Tourette. Implement the diet first and be preparedto go through the die-off stage, when the symptoms of Tourette may get worsetemporarily. For majority of patients it is important to go through the Introduction diet, toheal their damaged gut wall (as long as the gut wall is damaged the person can besensitive to any food). When the diet is well-implemented, the residual symptomsrespond very well to supplements boosting serotonine (5HTP with co-factors), anddopamine and noradrenalin (tyrosine with co-factors) production. It is important to startthese supplements from a small dose, and then gradually increase the dose until anindividual dose is found, which works for the person.
 Are coconut sugar crystals allowed on the full gaps diet and can they replace honey in baking?
No. It is a processed product, though it started as something natural.
