“IBS patients experience such life-altering symptoms that they report being willing to give up to 25% of their remaining life for a treatment that offers symptom relief (according to an international survey).” – Kate Scarlata  

Kate Scarlata is a registered dietitian and NY Times Best Selling author with expertise in digestive health. Her new book, The Low FODMAP Diet: Step by Step, was published in December 2017. Kate launched a grassroots campaign called “I Believe in Your Story” which raises funding for research for IBS and provides a safe place for patients to share their stories on her blog and on Instagram. She advocates for IBS patients so they can get the medical guidance and care they desperately need and deserve. Kate also has a private practice in Massachusetts.

“Food and agriculture innovation doesn’t come only from Monsanto, Cargill, and McDonald’s. It comes from students, nonprofit scientists, university professors, and struggling entrepreneurs. Fostering an environment that is hostile to innovation and growth in food and agriculture not only thwarts the plans of Big Food but also makes it harder for scientists to get their innovations to market.” – Jayson Lusk

Jayson Lusk is a food and agricultural economist who studies what we eat and why we eat it. He is a Distinguished Professor and Head of the Agricultural Economics program at Purdue University and the author of: Unnaturally Delicious: How Science and Technology are Serving Up Super Foods to Save the World (2016) and The Food Police: A Well-Fed Manifesto about the Politics of Your Plate (2013). A researcher, writer and speaker, Lusk has published more than 190 articles in peer reviewed scientific journals on topics ranging from the economics of animal welfare to consumer preferences for GMOs to the impacts of new technologies and policies. He has been listed as one of the most prolific and cited food and agricultural economists of the past two decades, won numerous research awards, given hundreds of lectures for businesses, nonprofits, trade industry organizations, and universities in the US and abroad, and has been interviewed or published or appeared in national media outlets such as the New York Times and Fox News.

“Happiness is a health issue. This is the founding principle of my first book which aims to teach women how to work with their bodies, treat themselves with empathy, and embrace this truth: You cannot be on a diet and be kind to yourself at the same time.” – Rebecca Scritchfield

Rebecca Scritchfield is a registered dietitian, certified exercise physiologist, author of the book Body Kindness: Transform Your Health From the Inside Out—and Never Say Diet Again, and host of the Body Kindness podcast. She runs a non-diet private practice focused on well-being enhancement in Washington, DC. After coming to terms with her own body image issues and chronic dieting, she realized that a ‘weight loss focused’ approach was not helpful to her clients. This inspired her to embark on a multi-year journey of studying positive psychology, motivational interviewing, and the research around weight-inclusive approaches to improving health.

“It’s never too late to eat well, move well and be well. And it doesn’t have to be hard, either. Too many people think it’s “too hard, or too expensive, or too time consuming, or too late” but it isn’t! Small steps toward food and fitness can reap big rewards. People over 50 are interested in nutrition and health but they don’t know where to get credible, common sense information – that’s why this book was born!” – Dr. Chris Rosenbloom 

Dr. Chris Rosenbloom wanted to be a dietitian since she was a teenager. Her high school year book picture has “future dietitian” under it. Today, she has over 40 years’ experience in nutrition, is a registered dietitian nutritionist and nutrition professor emeriti at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She recently released her first consumer book, Food & Fitness After 50, which she co-authored with Bob Murray, PhD, FACSM and was published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Chris runs a small business, Chris Rosenbloom Food & Nutrition Services LLC, to provide nutrition consultation to food and nutrition marketing firms, food companies, and professional organizations.
