Gut Feelings

Our 3 stage Gut Feelings program represents a proven treatment plan for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Together, the 3 stages form a step-by-step online process to treat diarrhea, constipation and bloating, and manage your IBS in precise detail. They show you exactly what to do every step of the way, right down to which foods to eat when and why.

Stage 1 – Low FODMAP Fortnight

Here you will access to a set of 6 simple, practical, short explanatory videos which outline how and why to make the suggested dietary changes, along with downloadable resources to complement each video. Resources include a food and symptom diary, low and high FODMAP food list, weekly meal plans, a shopping guide, recipe modification resource and the Low FODMAP Fortnight checklist. You can now also download our FODMAP SWAPP application from iTunes, Google Play or Amazon to help you swap the high FODMAP foods with lower FODMAP alternatives.

Why does the Gut Feelings program last for only 3 months?

Well, actually it doesn’t. We expect most people will successfully get through all three stages well inside 2 months. We have just set a time limit of 3 months for the program  to help ensure that people don’t procrastinate and put these lifestyle changes on the back-burner.
