Making nutrition science accessible and easy-to-digest. Andrea Hardy, Canada’s Gut Health Dietitian, is on a mission to connect people to credible, up-to-date nutrition information about gut health and digestive disorders.

Nutrition misinformation is rampant. If nutrition advice online scares you, it’s probably not true.

Let’s Gut Real is all taking the fear out of nutrition messaging, cultivating critical thinking, and helping you understand nutrition science. Andrea talks with guests about digestive health, the gut microbiome, hot nutrition topics, and nutrition misinformation, sharing messages that are easy to consume and that inspire sustainable action.

Andrea likes to say her goal is to get people to take nutrition a little less seriously – which may come as a surprise coming from a dietitian. Through humour, she injects fun into her science-based media messages. After all, poop jokes aren’t her favourite kinda jokes, but they are a solid #2.

Fantastic!

Andrea and her guests are such a wealth of information when it comes to new research in the area of gut health. As a fellow gut health RD, this podcast is where I come when I want a quick run-down of new research in this area

It doesn’t “Gut” any better than this...

As a fellow gut health RD, I really appreciate Andrea’s podcast to keep what’s discussed by her, and the experts she invites on as well, in the back of my mind as I work with my clients.
Truly great to have a podcast dedicated to gut health and hosted by an RD.

Just great.

I listen to a lot of podcasts and most in the functional health space. Andrea’s episodes are so straight forward, understandable language and perfectly timed (no hour+) daunting listens. Her guests have been super knowledgeable and it has opened my eyes to some amazing new practitioners in my local area. Highly recommend.
