Well… this year I will be somewhat of a road warrior…
I have a bunch of upcoming talks and presentations on various digestive health topics around the US in 2013. …And the number one topic, of course, is the low FODMAP diet.
This diet that has been life changing for many of my clients and its popularity is gaining momentum here in the US. I am happy to be spreading the word!
This biggest issue I am finding with the diet is that there are too few registered dietitians in the US that know how to implement the diet. Don’t get me wrong, there are many that are doing a great job…but still, not enough dietitians compared to the millions that suffer with digestive woes such as IBS.
My colleague, Patsy Catsos and I have teamed up to provide 3 upcoming FODMAPs workshops for dietitians…
- March 15, 2013 in Laurel, Maryland
- April 5, 2013 in Bridgeport, Connecticut
- September 26, 2013 in Arlington Heights, Illinois
So…for all you dietitians that happen to be checking in on my blog, MAYBE its time you signed up! Or at least kindly spread the word! Click here to download registration form!
Why attend a workshop when I can find the lists on line? The FODMAP workshop reviews the whys, how, what, where and whens about FODMAPs-details about the pathophysiology of the gut, a look at potential role of the low FODMAP diet outside IBS, a review of what ingredients are allowable, menu planning, case management, and even tips for marketing your GI nutrition practice.
So…Hope to meet you at one of our upcoming programs!
In Living Without magazine, just published a great review of the low FODMAP diet and generously granted permission for the article to be reprinted on my site! So…if you are interested! Click here to access the Living Without FODMAP article
I was also featured in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Blog last week too…writing about, guess? Yup, FODMAPs again. This is a great blog spot written by various dietitians! Want to see this FODMAPs article, link here!
I do keep busy!
Hope you are keeping busy, productive but most of all well-balanced and happy!
