I have spent about 15 years of my life experiencing daily agonising pain.
I would always wake up with no pain, but by the evening my stomach had grown twice it’s size, my trousers would no longer fit, and I would be in agonising pain.
I would sit there all evening in pain, not being able to move much or do much.
Nobody knew what was causing it, the doctors just seemed happy they had ruled out anything serious.

But it had a massive impact on my life.
I often took painkillers to try and block out the pain but they didn’t really work.
Little did I know, I could have easily prevented all that agony, if only I knew what I know now.
That my diet was causing my pain.
Specifically dairy, and to a certain extent, pulses and beans too.
When I gave up dairy my IBS symptoms massively decreased but didn’t completely go away.
I became a vegan which lends itself to eating a lot of beans and pulses. It wasn’t until I tried a different diet that didn’t include any beans that I was finally free from stomach pain for the first time in my adult life.
I have been free from daily stomach pain for years now, thankfully.
I feel like I’ve got my life back.
Funnily enough, I actually do think that beans and pulses are a health food, but they don’t work for everybody, so it does pay to experiment yourself.
Have you ever experimented with a different diet to see if some of your health problems ease?
The main reason why people change their diet is to lose weight, but most faddy diets still include many allergens which continue to cause health problems and pain.
What if I told you that you could lose weight and avoid many known allergens to improve your health at the same time?
This is exactly the reason I created The Leaf System.
I just wanted to share Rhonda’s story with you today as she had a similar experience.
“In one month I have lost a total of 8.5 inches.
I used to have left knee pain but during the weeks that I was sticking to the system I had no pain.
However…these couple of weeks that I have been indulging in holiday foods the pain has crept back in.
I plan on sticking to the Leaf System for life as this has been the best thing I’ve ever tried.
I love the convenience and flexibility of the smoothies (thickies) and the variety of ingredients.
The lunch and dinner recipes are also wonderful. At least the ones I have tried.
I am a person who makes one thing and eats it all week long. Too much time in the kitchen is not for me. I guess that is why I like the smoothies so much.
Quick and easy, yet filling so I can run and do what I have to do all day.” – Rhonda Reyes
Isn’t that fascinating how her pain came back straight away when she started to indulge in holiday food again?

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
