PhD in Gut Health, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist

Dr Megan Rossi, founder of The Gut Health Doctor, is considered one of the most influential gut health specialists internationally. A Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist for the last decade with an award-winning PhD in gut health, which 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 and probiotics, dietary fibres, plant-based diversity, the low-FODMAP diet and food additives. She has received over £2.5Million in research funding as lead draftsperson and has published over 30 scientific papers in International, peer-reviewed journals. She was also the recipient of the 2017 British Medical Journal prize and the British Nutrition Foundation award for her research, presented by Princess Anne. 
Megan founded The Gut Health Clinic in London, where she leads a team of gut-specialist dietitians, as well as creating her own gut health food brand Bio&Me to bridge the gap between science and the food industry.
Frustrated that her 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, evidence-based advice, building an engaged community of over 350,000 people so far.
Her debut book, Eat Yourself Healthy (UK, Aus & Europe) and Love Your Gut (US & Canada), was first published in September 2019 as an easy-to-digest guide to gut health and beyond, immediately becoming an Amazon and The Sunday Times best seller. It is now available in four different languages. Her long-awaited second book, Eat More, Live Well is out the 30th December 2021. Megan has also been recognised as Business Insider’s Top 100 Coolest People in Food & Drink and named Young Australian Achiever of the Year in the UK 2020.
