Are you frustrated with your clients unnecessarily removing entire food groups?

During this podcast, we delve into food group avoidance and self – (or Dr Google) diagnosis, with the help of a behavioural scientist, researcher and author. We’ll investigate the drivers of self-diagnosis, and why clients are self-prescribing their own nutrition treatment like food group restriction, the nutritional implications and the ACTIONS we can take as evidence-based health professionals to tackle this issue.

About our speaker: Dr Sinead Golley from CSIRO, Australia, is a behavioural scientist and researcher who specialises in understanding the drivers of food choice, particularly when it comes to food avoidance and restrictive diets.
