Gutsy Gals Ep 06 – Prescribing Diets

TALKING ABOUT THERAPEUTIC USE OF DIETS!

Specifically, what you should be aware of if you’re told to follow a true keto diet (vs “low carb”), a low FODMAP diet, or the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet.

  • Why does a doctor recommend one? And do you really need to follow it?
  • What are they?
  • What are the pros and cons and common pit falls?
  • And what should you be aware of long-term?

SPOILER: you should NOT just be stuck on a restricted diet the rest of your life! There NEEDS to be a game-plan to address the root cause of WHY you were put on the diet to begin with! Otherwise you’re just using the diet like a pill to mask symptoms

So listen in, and share with others! Ready to accelerate your healing by finding out what the actual ROOT CAUSE is, and addressing it? Email me at kate@dublindietitian.com

EDIT NOTE: There is a moment in talking about the AIP diet where Andee lists items that are not allowed on the AIP diet, and she lists NSAIDS and states prescription meds (which can be stronger level NSAIDS, such as Naproxen). This was brought to my attention that someone may interpret that as someone thinking they should quit their medications if they want to do a true AIP diet. PLEASE NOTE, THAT IS NOT WHAT WE ARE SAYING! Andee is just sharing sharing the given protocol, not our condoning of quitting meds. Per Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s outline, yes, NSAIDS (such as aspirin or ibuprofen) are listed under “to be removed” — BUT! This again drive home the need to PERSONALIZE and INDIVIDUALIZE! If your doctor told you to take a medicine, do NOT quit taking without their guidance. Dr. Ballantyne’s outline is a good cookie-cutter starting point, but you need to adapt for you, with guidance from your doctor or other health care professional well versed in AIP.
