Sign up for this interactive and hands-on workshop: What Every RD Needs to Know about FODMAPs.
Do you know what pears, milk, whole-wheat pasta, sugar-free gum, and hummus have in common? These “healthy” foods all contain FODMAPs carbohydrates and can cause symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). If you’ve never heard the term “FODMAPs” before, you are not alone! The FODMAPs concept, developed in Australia, is gaining momentum in the US as an emerging evidenced-based dietary approach that is effective in managing symptoms in 75% who suffer with IBS. Recently featured in The Wall Street Journal, the low FODMAP diet has further piqued the interest of many of the 45 million Americans with IBS who are desperately searching for help to improve their quality of life. As a registered dietitian-delivered diet, this is a huge opportunity for RD’s to make a difference.
Join Patsy Catsos, MS, RD, LD and Kate Scarlata, RD, LDN to learn the latest on this novel
dietary approach. You will get:
• The most up-to-date information about FODMAPs straight from Australia
• Hands-on practice with dietary assessment and nutrition care planning related to FODMAPs
• Tools for patient education including a copy of IBS—Free at Last!, reproducible patient handouts
and a low FODMAP recipe booklet
• Marketing ideas for expanding your practice to include more IBS patients
