The Low FODMAP Diet Seminar Series

I so wish I lived in Australia right now because this event is going to be so good!  For this Low FODMAP Diet Seminar Series, the presenters are from different backgrounds which means if you can attend, you will receive a very well-rounded perspective and education on the low-FODMAP diet.  More information and how to buy tickets is listed below.  After you attend, please comment on my blog post and let me know what you thought of all the presentations.

Session 1: Navigating the Low FODMAP Diet

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a frustrating condition that causes substantial pain and suffering. While medications aren’t very effective at managing IBS symptoms, the low FODMAP diet can provide symptom relief in up to 70% of people with IBS. FODMAP Friendly, in combination with a range of IBS and FODMAP experts, is running seminars to help people with IBS learn how to navigate the low FODMAP diet so that they too can feel the benefits. You’ll learn about how IBS affects your body, what FODMAPs are and why they matter, and how the low FODMAP diet works. We’ll also teach you about practical strategies and resources that make a low FODMAP diet easier so that you can overcome the challenges and quickly get back to feeling normal.

THIS EVENT IS FOR:

People who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and are interested in learning more about the low FODMAP diet.
