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.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

I have been geeking out on the podcast haha. As a clinical RD who does outpatient nutrition counseling, I have found this podcast to be extremely informative! GI diagnosis can be challenging to work with for the patient and RD. Each episode has an immense amount of valuable info that I can use to help my patients better understand their diagnosis and how to better manage it.
