041 – Success Stories, Volume 2

Welcome back to The Low Carb Leader podcast! This week’s episode of our Success Stories series is all about Dan Quibell, founder of The Bacon Experiment.

As a child, Dan turned to food to cope with the emotional stress of his parents’ divorce. As he got older, he began having problems with losing weight and keeping the weight off. By the time he was 14-years-old, he was diagnosed with a painful condition called Gout, a form of arthritis that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling in a joint. Gout is often linked to being overweight or obese and is caused by having too much uric acid in the blood.

040 – Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the low Fodmap diet with Suzanne Perazzini

nutrition-fitness-weight-loss-health-coach-leaderIrritable Bowel Syndrome is a gastrointestinal disorder that affects about 10-15% of people worldwide. Some of the most common symptoms of IBS is bloating, feelings of excess gas, diarrhea, or constipation – or a combination of both – and abdominal cramps and pain.

While scientists and researchers are still unsure of the exact causes of IBS, many believe that it is due to – or triggered by – one or more of the following:

Hereditary; genetic pre-disposition
Elevated stress levels
Infections of the gastrointestinal tract
Abdominal surgery
Too many antibiotics – or taking antibiotics for too long
Dramatic changes in diet
Many people suffering from IBS experience significant, prolonged discomfort – and it’s often severe enough for them to miss work and spend less time with their friends.

Suzanne Perazzini is a nutritional therapist, coach, and an IBS liberator who has suffered from digestive issues all her life. She is also the author of The Inspired Life: Low FODMAP Coaching Program and the author of two Low FODMAP cookbooks. She started her journey into the Low FODMAP lifestyle through blogging, researching, and experimenting with ways that would help her address her chronic digestive problem. Her journey led her on her mission to help other IBS sufferers learn how to manage and treat their chronic digestive problems by using the Low FODMAP diet.
