Amanda Lapidus is a Registered Dietitian in Toronto who focuses on digestive disorders. She is actively involved in research related to diet and the gut microbiome in the IBD community. We talk about what set Amanda on the path to dedicate her energy to diet, nutrition, and preventable health. She answers questions about the difference between dietitians and nutritionists, fad diets and social media, food fear, probiotics and prebiotics, and answers the questions – ‘Did I eat something to cause my IBD?’ and ‘What diet will cure my disease?’. We learn when navigating IBD and diet, it is important that this is done under the care of a dietitian because IBD is difficult and everyone is different!
