Dietitian FODMAP workshops 2013

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!

Take a peek at the form…REGISTRATION_FORM 3 final

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!

    I have never been so excited to attend a workshop! I can’t wait to learn from someone so knowledgeable on the topic. Thank you for offering it!

  • Ann Baker

    Hi – I would like to attend your workshop but am not a RD – I am a nurse,MPH who is starting a health education/wellness practice. Is that OK?f

    • katescarlata

      Ann, Thanks for inquiring. Right now the workshop is geared toward the role of the registered dietitian and due to the limited registration space we have decided for this year to keep it RDs only… BUT, I hope that next year we will do an all inclusive larger workshop for individuals doing the diet as well as include all practitioners.

        Ok- I understand. Keep me posted for future events. The fodmap diet combined with excluding foods high in fermentation potential (bananas, sweet potatoes, etc) finally helped me. Are you familiar with Norm Robillards work of the Digestive Health Inst? It was only after using his recommendations in combination with fodmaps that I finally got better.
        thanks for all you work on this –

    Hi Kate,
    Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you do!
    I’m in Australia, and obviously not able to attend the workshops, but wondered – is there the chance of it being videoed, and available online at some future point?

    • katescarlata

      Nina, We have thought about videoing our workshop….but it really has a big hands on working component so may not be suitable to film. Monash Uni has a great dietitian’s workshop on FODMAPs–I know it’s a big country 😉 but perhaps you could attend the program in Melbourne! I traveled from Boston–all 20 plus hours in a plane…to learn about FODMAPs from the Monash group! Here is a link about FODMAP resources and classes at Monash:
