The Diversity Diet
Dr Megan Rossi
Tuesday 28 June 20:00–21:00 BST
To launch our NEW MyNutriBookClub, we’ll be reading and reviewing the Sunday Times bestselling book, ‘Eat More, Live Well’ by registered dietitian and award-winning gut health researcher Dr Megan Rossi.
‘Eat More, Live Well’ is an educational toolkit for plant-based eating, which taps into the latest in cutting-edge nutritional science to provide an approach to food that’s good for us, the planet and our gut microbes. This science-backed approach is about enriching, not restricting; inclusive, not exclusive. More Plants, more variety, more fibre, more flavour. Dr Megan Rossi calls it ‘The Diversity Diet’.
Dr Megan Rossi has pooled her work as a research scientist at King’s College London and over a decade of experience as a clinical gut-health specialist dietitian to create a book that highlights the life-changing benefits of the Diversity Diet. Along with 80+ gut-loving recipes and three meal-plans, you’ll find client case studies and tips to help your patients increase their plant intake in a way that works best for them.
We hosted a live session on Tuesday 28 June, 20:00–21:00 BST – discussing the book and highlighting any key learnings for practice, including a question and answer session with Dr Megan Rossi.
GAIN CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:
- The beneficial impact plant-based eating has on our gut-axis pathways. Specifically, the gut-brain, gut-immune, gut-skin, gut-metabolism and gut-hormone axes
- The role of the six Diversity Diet principles and how they contribute to helping people achieve better overall health
- What constitutes a plant-based diet and the versatile nature of this approach to eating (hint: it doesn’t mean plants-only)
BE AWARE OF:
- The health impacts of neglecting a variety of plant-foods on the microbiome
- The important relationship between the gut and stress, sleep and exercise
- Ways to help people with common complaints related to plant-based eating
BE ABLE TO:
- Give people practical and cost-effective ways to implement the Diversity Diet into their everyday lives
- Provide people suffering with functional gut disorders such as IBS advice on her FODMAP-lite approach
- Empower people to confidently take charge of their gut health and understand the link between their gut and the rest of their body
