11am- Sunday Session 2 – Beat the Bloat with Lorraine Maher of The Gut Health Clinic Blackrock

Lorraine is a specialist gut health dietitian with special interest management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). She currently runs a Gut Health Clinic at the Blackrock Clinic, focusing on helping pinpoint gut symptoms triggers. Lorraine acknowledges that it can be hard to get your head around the ginormous supply of available nutrition information, not least in the gut health space. And when it comes to trying out restrictive diets to manage gut symptoms – you may feel like you’re slipping down a dietary rabbit hole! Frankly every day we’re told something a bit different but Lorraine’s approach will ensure that evidence triumph’s over opinion. Lorraine holds a BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition and MSc in Dietetics. She is Low FODMAP diet accredited and is co-author of Gut Feeling, a Low FODMAP reference guide and recipe book. She guest lectures in IBS and IBD. She recently developed the bespoke Intuitive IBS programme, a 4 session intervention which aims to tailor and merge the most suitable and effective evidence-based interventions to allow you to dominate your condition. She’ll be talking through all things gut with us.

11.30am- Sunday Session 3 – Eating Mindfully with Aisling Larkin

Aisling believes that in order to bring back the joy of food to our lives we need to relearn the art and science of eating. Her approach is based in ancient wisdoms of Buddhist philosophy, the psychology of behaviour change and the physiology of eating. All of which is now backed by over a decade of scientific research.

As one of only a handful of people in Europe trained in the MB-EAT programme some of Aisling’s core tenants of mindful eating include: no more restriction or deprivation but eating for satiety, tuning into our inner hunger cues and outer wisdoms, cooking with umami and how awareness, discernment and self-nourishment can be the key to real sustainable change for our relationship with food.

Aisling will be talking us through intuitive eating and will demo her Italian Flatbreads with Garlic Prawns, Sweet Red Peppers & Mozzarella recipe during the session. Find the recipe here
