Eating for Good Health: Separating Fact from Fiction

Jul 20 3:51pm | Megan Roessler M. Ed. | @meganroessler | Comments (9)

We are excited to bring you an online learning opportunity.  Please join us Tuesday, July 27th at 3:00 p.m. (central time) to learn more about food choices.  We know what we eat impacts our health, but many of the messages we read about good nutrition seem to change regularly.  Low carb, low fat, detox diets...what is the best advice to follow?  Come hear evidence-based dietary guidance regarding healthy choices and some the nutritional hot topics and controversies.

Please click here to register for this session we will be doing over Zoom.

I must be in physical therapy at that time at the time of your presentation. I have Chronic Fatigue, pain and IBS. Fibromyalgia is simply not a helpful term. When I am extremely tired what should I eat? I’m trying expensive supplements but I doubt very much I can maintain nutritional needs without a plan. Yup, I try to make ahead when I can. Most diets want to load me up on chickpeas and beans which are not IBS friendly. I cannot know but it’s reasonable to believe that I am becoming more tired because of what I DO NOT eat. If you can take a moment to address this and give those of us not available a chance to watch this later, I will be extremely grateful.
Many thanks

I have a commitment so can’t attend. Do you record these sessions, including any Q&A? It would be great to have it available on

Hi Carolyn,
I'm sorry you will not be able to our online offering. Yes, it is difficult meeting nutrition needs when you are tired. It sound ike meeting with a Registered Dietitian would really be a great way to create a plan for quick and easy meals on days when you are not feeling well. Your physician can order a consult with a dietitian. You can find great sources of protein from fish, chicken, low-fat dairy products, and eggs. That can be a way to provide energy. Below are some resources found on Mayo Clinic Connect and Mayoclinic.org:
Please check out the Gastroenterology and GI surgery Connect Page where there is an entire tab with Irritable Bowel Disease that has resources from Mayoclinic.org and a playlist on Mayo Clinic YouTube.

I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes,

Thank you for your comments. I read continuously. I’m pretty aware of foods that can work. If. I am too tired to cook, salmon in water packets can help. Sweet potatoes are magic in the microwave. I also try hard to use a good day to cook ahead.. I have Fodmap protein bars on hand. Everything is expensive.
I’m always looking for more ideas or comments that confirm I am doing my best. I suspect that I am.
Best always
Carolyn

Sounds like you have some great ideas. If you have tools like crockpots or pressure cookers, that can really help when pressed for time or tired.

I wanted to follow up with you regarding our online offering from yesterday: Eating for Good Health: Separating Fact from Fiction. This was our first online offering using the Webinar version of Zoom and unfortunately we discovered that the session did not record. I am so sorry! We will make sure to re-present this offering and get the recording down in the near future since a couple of people asked about a recording.

Again we apologize!
