The elimination stage of the low FODMAP diet is the essential first stage so that you can become symptom-free before testing foods to create your final diet. It has to be done 100% accurately to get results and that needs guidance and knowledge or you could be stuck on this stage indefinitely. It is really important to stay no longer than 3-4 weeks on this stage because the elimination diet is low on prebiotics, which regulate your gut bacteria. So, let's get you symptom-free as quickly as possible.

Is This Right for You?
You might think that you can do this by yourself and you might manage it. It could take you 6 months or a year to gather all the pieces together like I have done over the last 7 years but this is a complex diet – the list of allowed foods is only one piece of the puzzle. There are many pieces that make up the complete transformation. I can support you through the elimination stage of the diet in 3 weeks, not 6 months or 1 year. In fact, your pain will probably be gone in a week and by the end of the 3 weeks, you will have all the tools you need to continue on to the reintroduction stage, and you will know about all the facets that keep IBS under control and that goes far beyond just the food. This program is not just about food. It’s about lifestyle – living a more relaxed, vibrant, balanced life.
Think about it – 3 weeks instead of months or years more of pain and embarrassment and of stress for you and your family as you all cope with your ill-health. If you’re in pain right now, this is the time to get help. Not tomorrow or next week or after you have bought the house or after the kids have left home. Right now. Let today be the last day you suffer from pain.

Perhaps you want to know....
Why do I have to fill in an application form?
I like to have a phone consultation with anyone who is wanting to join the program so that we can have an in-depth discussion about your issues and whether the program is a good fit for you. My program covers diet and a balanced lifestyle - I am a nutritional therapist, not a doctor and don’t give medical advice. If I feel that your problem is more than IBS and that you need medical help, I will advise you to visit your health practitioner.
Do I have to pay for the phone consultation?
No. After filling in the application form, you will be directed to a page where you can schedule a call with me. I will call the phone number you enter at the scheduled time and we will have our discussion.
How do I pay for the program?
Once we have decided you are a good fit for the program, you can pay by credit card or PayPal or I can send you the details for a bank transfer if you prefer that method of payment.
Is there an installment plan?
Yes, you can pay in three installments if that suits your budget.
How soon can I start the program?
Once you are accepted into the program, you can start the next Monday. Meanwhile, I send you an accurate, up-to-date food chart with amounts to keep you going until the official launch date.
I am very picky about food. How can I know that I will like your meal plans?
Before you start, I send you a series of questions about your food likes, dislikes and known intolerances as well as various lifestyle questions. I then tailor-make your first week’s meal plans for you. I get these to you a few days before you start so you have time to look them over, ask me questions and do the necessary shopping.
I don’t like cooking and don’t have much time for it. Will these meal plans include complicated meals?
I appreciate that there are times when you want to cook and times when you have to make a quick meal. I include many tasty recipes for dinner to keep the food interesting but there is usually a very simple alternative if that’s what you prefer that day.
Will I have to cook a separate meal for the rest of my family?
No, these meal plans are designed to include dinners that the whole family can eat. They can have their high Fodmap foods at the other meals when a family often eats separately anyway and take less time to prepare.
Will I really get the kind of in-depth support I need on this program?
I can assure you that I am there for you 100% of my waking hours. We have a weekly phone consultation for up to 45 minutes, and you have daily email access to me so that you can get support and your questions answered straight away.
As you can see from my client, Betty’s comment here, “Suzanne is just an email away to divert any questions and offer support.”
And another client, Margaret Kneeland said, “Suzanne was very responsive to my questions throughout the program. ”
And Judy Kemp said, “I can't thank Suzanne enough for her time, patience and support.”
I have a busy life and not much time. How complicated will this program be?
My client, Sarah said, “Suzanne is incredibly knowledgeable, available, and friendly. Her program is easy to follow in that it is highly organized. Suzanne's program is focused on helping the client as a whole person. Suzanne is a true coach.
And Margaret said, “Suzanne's program was very easy to follow and the recipes were delicious. The cadence of the training was great to learn the various methods other than eating that were involved in controlling the IBS. “
How long does it take for the diet to work?
My client from above, Ed said, “After day one of being on the program, I felt much better. I was amazed how quickly it worked.”
If you have IBS with diarrhoea, you will get this amazingly quick response to an accurate low Fodmap diet. Some take a little longer – usually those with constipation because their systems are slower and so the response time to the new diet is lower.
But even so, here is what Sylvia who has IBS with constipation said, “It's been a very enlightening experience, within a couple of weeks I became more regular than I can ever remember - life changing! I can now see my feet, no longer looking 5 months pregnant, no more belly-full of wind and to top it all lost a few pounds around my new found flatter stomach.”
What happens if I need more support after the program is finished?
By the end of the program, you will know exactly how to move forward by yourself with all the information you need, but I like you to keep in touch so you will be invited to join a private Facebook group where you can continue to get support.
