There are evidence-based studies to support the benefits of restricted diets for clinical management of gastroenterological, metabolic, and neurological conditions. However, non-clinical populations are increasingly adopting restricted diets, which is being supported by the food and health industry as well as promoted by social media influencers today.

Are non-medical restricted diets a public health concern or do their benefits outweigh the risks? This webinar will bring together international experts and clinicians to present and debate recent evidence on restricted diets.

Join us as we look into clinical diets such as gluten-free, low-FODMAP, and ketogenic low-carbohydrate diets as well as non-medical diets, including animal-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, casein-free, lactose-free, low-carbohydrate, allergen-excluding, and clean eating.

We will also be discussing concerns over low-micronutrient intakes particularly in young women, increase in eating disorders, orthorexia nervosa and poor mental health as well as recommendations for a diversity of diet to support a healthy microbiome.

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the nutritional and public health contexts in which restricted diets are being followed
  • Know the clinical benefits of specific restricted diets
  • Understand the risks and benefits to the non-clinical population following restricted diets
  • Be aware of the motivations of and influences on followers of non-medical restricted diets

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
