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.

Great topics and info

Andrea gets to the no nonsense information which actually helps inform people as to the various health craze topics out there. Also like that she is not afraid to have guests who are not afraid of the natural health alternatives. Looking forward to more podcasts in the future.
