How this course helped people beat bloating
and improve digestion...
Emma
The course has changed my life! I no longer feel bloated all the time and I have better energy. I loved cooking new dishes and discovering new ingredients. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has a sensitive gut or anyone who just wants support to eat better and learn how to cook delicious meals.
Karen
It worked really well for a busy household that I have three active boys. It's a great process. It's really easy to work into your lifestyle. So I guess those are the main things for me as a busy mom and to be able to do it easily and have all the listing of products there for us and just a really easy shopping list.
Emma
Benefits that I experienced obviously, first of all, most importantly, a better digestive system. And then the other benefits was just getting more knowledge and awareness of my cooking and the different things I was putting into my body and also just meeting like minded people that were going on the same journey as myself.

FAQ
Is it ok to have alcohol on the course? I have a few social events coming up.
We generally advise anyone going to the effort of doing this course to eliminate alcohol but it's not the be all and end all. If alcohol makes you eat more veg then the odd glass of Rioja is fine by us! Just be mindful of the foods you're craving the day after alcohol intake. Keep them whole-food and plant-based, and you'll be grand.
Do I need to follow along live?
The course notes can be accessed at whatever time suits you and it is a self-led course, so you do not need to follow along live. Live Q&As will be saved for you to watch later.
Who is the course NOT suitable for?
Our meal plans provide at least 1800 kcals per day, plus more if you include the recommended snacks. As a healthy whole food plant-based diet often leads to weight loss, this course may not be suitable for you if you are underweight or have recently gotten through a period of weight loss.

If you have Crohn's disease with known strictures or narrowed sections in your gut, or if you have had significant sections of your bowel removed by operation for any reason, you may not tolerate the higher fibre content of the Gut Health Revolution recipes. Similarly, individuals with a stoma may find that the higher fibre nature of the meal plan results in excess stoma output.
How long will I have access for?
You will have access to the course content for 6 weeks – 14 extra days after you finish the course with an opportunity to prolong. It is proven that time sensitive access motivates our students to complete the course faster.
Do the fruit and veg have to be organic and local?
In an ideal world, we would all be eating local, organic produce but as this is not feasible all the time — we feel it is more important to eat your fruit and vegetables than it is to worry about them being organic or not. The bigger issue is more about making sure you are getting whole-foods in your diet.

Studies have shown that even with the most sprayed fruit, such as grapes, the benefits of eating the fruit outweights the negatives of the chemical sprays.
Is it ok to drink coffee and tea on the course?
Caffeine is great for sharpening your focus and helping you with certain daily tasks that might need your sustained concentration. So, moderate caffeine intake is absolutely fine. We recommend you limit your caffeine intake to EITHER 1-2 cups of coffee per day OR 2-3 cups of breakfast or green tea per day, changing all other teas to herbal tea or warm water. Use your favourite non-dairy milk as needed.

Please also avoid 'sugar-free' drinks. The artificial sweeteners can cause bloating and are not good for your gut microbiome health!
Will the ingredients be hard to source?
You will be able to find almost all the ingredients on this course in your local supermarket or health food shop.
