#418: The IBS Dietitian Kirsten Jackson on The Problem With Low FODMAP Diets, Common Food Triggers and How To Finally Take Control Of Your IBS!
Kirsten is a UK registered dietitian specializing in irritable bowel syndrome.
She is a fully trained low FODMAP dietitian and has incorporated this diet into her Take Control method for optimal results.
Before becoming a low FODMAP dietitian, Kirsten suffered with IBS herself.
After realizing that the low FODMAP diet was only part of the answer, she developed the Take Control method which incorporates a more holistic approach to support IBS sufferers.

Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s show:
· The problem with low FODMAP diets and what its missing
· The supplements that may help (and the questions to ask before you start them)
· Biggest food triggers (and why they may not be the ones you think)

Favourite podcast for everything health and positivity !
I’ve been listening to Brian’s podcasts consistently for the last two years. I tend to dip in and out of a lot of podcasts but Brian’s is a constant one for me. I love the variety of guests he has and I feel his podcast caters for everyone. He has an amazing attitude to life and an overwhelming positivity that is hard not to be influenced by. If you could live by his tips your life would 100% be better! My favourite weekly podcast by far.
Brian Keane Podcast is my go to as an aspiring Health Coach
One of the few podcasts that have made me actually pick up a pen and take notes. I discovered ZMA supplement as it was discussed on the podcast a couple of weeks ago and my sleep quality had gone through the roof. Thanks Brian and keep up the good work!
