Course Description


This event will cover the principles of healthy eating, reviewing nutritional guidelines and the latest evidence, particularly for obese patients. We will explore  sports nutrition for endurance sports and will cover diet and lifestyle adaptations to manage symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and other gut conditions.


Following this event you will have an understanding of:

  • A healthy diet
  • The principles behind a lower carbohydrate/processed food diet and how this can improve health
  • Nutrition for sports and endurance events
  • How to signpost your patient with irritable bowel syndrome: what is it, why they may have the symptoms and self-help.
