FODMAPs Training Day

This seminar focuses on the increasingly popular low FODMAPs diet which has been identified as a short term eating plan for resolving symptoms of IBS. The seminar teaches you about what the low FODMAPs Diet is, and what it means in terms of food restrictions but also what alternative foods to eat. There is a review of the published papers on the topic, highlighting features, benefits and possible issues arising from the diet. Mechanisms are explored. You will also learn about fructose malabsorption and lactose intolerance. Methods of testing are discussed and explored. Learn about how to support and correct the underlying gut imbalances in those individuals who benefit from a low FODMAPs diet. Receive practical advice to help implement a low FODMAPs diet with clients, and how to conduct the recommended re-introduction programme with clear step by step guidelines to follow. Receive an information booklet / patient handout giving details of the low FODMAPs diet, menu example and the most recent information on foods to avoid, with suitable alternatives including recipes and advice on reading labels and eating out.
