Evidence-based diet and MS: looking at the Mediterranean diet

"MS diets and fad diets share a lot in common — they promise huge results and often suggest cutting out food groups, or requiring expensive speciality foods and supplements... good healthy eating for MS doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg or remove joy out of your life!”

When there is so much information about MS diets and trends, how do you sort out fact from fiction? In this live webinar, Accredited Practicing Dietician and certified fertility dietitian, and founder of Tayyib Nutrition, Mariam Metwally, will unravel the science behind diets for MS, what is a fad and what evidence-based approaches there are. Mariam will go into detail about the Mediterranean diet, as well as the relationship between diet and the microbiome.

Mariam Metwally is an Accredited Practising Dietitian with specialist training as a certified fertility dietitian. She is the founder of Tayyib Nutrition specialising in women’s health.

Mariam is passionate about helping women gain relief from conditions like PCOS and supporting women optimise their diet and lifestyle to support fertility and preconception health. She's also passionate about MS and using diet and lifestyle to help improve quality of life, particularly for women in the preconception period.

1:00pm–2:00pm AEDT
