Dr Megan Rossi, also known as The Gut Health Doctor, is a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist with an award-winning PhD in gut health, as well as the author of Love Your Gut, an easy-to-digest lifestyle guide to gut health and beyond, coming out in the US in January 2021.
Megan is considered one of the most influential gut health specialists internationally and her PhD was recognised for its contribution to science receiving the Dean’s Award for outstanding research.
As a leading Research Fellow at King’s College London, Megan is currently investigating nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including prebiotics, probiotics, dietary fibres, plant-based diversity, the low-FODMAP diet and food additives, as well as having set up The Gut Health Clinic, where she leads a team of gut-specialist dietitians to make an evidence-based approach more accessible. More recently, Megan has created her own gut health food company, Bio&Me, to bridge the gap between science and food industry.
Frustrated that her research findings weren’t reaching the public, and instead seeing fad and potentially dangerous misinformation on gut health being spread, Megan took to social media to share credible information and science-based advice, building an active community with over 245,000 of people so far.
Megan has also been recognised as Business Insider’s Top 100 Coolest People in Food & Drink and was named Young Australian Achiever of the Year in the UK 2020.
