I’m so pleased to be able to share this episode with you. I’m speaking with Kate Scarlata, an amazing dietitian who has extensive experience supporting people who struggle with gastrointestinal disorders and food intolerance. Of special interest to Kate is how the low FODMAP diet can be used to help heal functional gut disorders. 


In addition to her various degrees -- MPH, RDN, LDN -- Kate was also awarded the Outstanding Massachusetts Dietitian Award and recognized as Boston’s Best Dietitian by Boston Magazine. Kate is also the author of numerous books and articles on digestive health topics including the New York Times Best Seller, The 21 Day Tummy Diet. Her latest book is The Low FODMAP Diet Step by Step. 


There are some really important takeaways from my conversation with Kate, specifically:


  • Poor GI health can be disruptive to one’s professional and personal life; so many people struggle in silence, so it’s important to talk about these issues
  • Diet for gut health is not one size fits all, so the nutritional approach and treatment for gut symptoms that you follow needs to be personalized 
  • The FODMAP approach to diet can help people with IBS with GI issues 
  • Because the gut and the brain are connected, if you’re stressed about your diet, you’ll exacerbate your GI issues
  • Healthy living is feeling peace in your heart and mind
