The Gut Loving Podcast: All about IBS & the low FODMAP diet

Dec 1, 2018

The Gut Loving Podcast is all about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the low FODMAP diet! The low FODMAP diet is a relatively new approach to effectively treat IBS symptoms and is scientifically backed by a vast number of medical studies.


About this podcast


The Gut Loving Podcast is hosted by Laura Tilt (an experienced Dietitian in the UK specialising in IBS and the low FODMAP diet) and Huelya Akyuez, who has been living with IBS for over 20 years.


Together, Laura and Huelya started The Gut Loving Podcast to help others with IBS get clear on the facts - and learn more about how to take control of their condition.


Remember: Don’t start the low FODMAP diet without consulting your doctor or low FODMAP specialised dietitian first. The content of our podcast is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Guidelines for fluid intake: As a rough guide, 35 ml per kilogram of body weight for adults under 60 years of age. Please note hydration needs vary according to temperature and activity levels too. If you are increasing your fibre intake, remember to increase your water intake too.
