Colleen Francioli is a certified nutritionist and author with a focus on helping people with IBS, other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) and food intolerances. She once suffered from IBS herself and has since found life balance with the low-FODMAP diet, an elimination diet developed in Australia, proven to help relieve symptoms of IBS.
Colleen started her blog http://www.FODMAPLife.com to help others with IBS learn how to choose the right foods and stress relief instead of pharma drugs. Colleen's book The Everything® Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbook is available for pre-order now and is due to be published in May 2016. It has more than 300 low-FODMAP and gluten-free recipes, plus diet basics, tips, menu plans as well as low- and high-FODMAP lists.
Colleen is a trained photographer and sommelier. Her background includes working as a digital marketing strategist, mostly for clients in the health and wellness sectors.
