Visceral: Episode Six
Don’t Cut That Out: How to add foods to your diet to optimize nutrition

With Lori Rowell Welstead, MS, RD, LDN and Courtney Schuchmann, MS, RD, LDN
Registered Dietitians with the University of Chicago Digestive Diseases Center

“People might think that a registered dietitian is going to say, ‘cut this out, cut that out,’ where in reality, we focus on adding food back into to your diet to really optimize your nutritional status.”

In this episode, patients with digestive diseases learn what they should eat, why they should eat it, how they should manage their diet, and how to make sure that they’re maximizing their nutrition so they get all of the optimal benefits of the food they are eating. Registered dietitians with the University of Chicago Digestive Diseases Center, Lori Rowell Welstead and Courtney Schuchmann share their expertise on nutrition and its relationship to IBS, Celiac disease, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, gastroparesis, fatty liver disease, and more.
