Nutrition and Gut Health : What's the Connection?
Inside our digestive tract (mostly within the large intestine), there live billions of bacteria which aid the body in a variety of functions from breaking down your food and facilitating nutrient absorption to impacting hormones and mood (whoah!). This ecosystem is called your "gut microbiome". The health of your gut relies heavily on a proper balance of 'good' bacteria to 'bad' bacteria. A shift in this ratio, called "dysbiosis", can mean a variety of ill effects. For example, too much 'bad' bacteria have been linked to higher incidences of IBS/ IBD, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis.
What we eat can have a great impact on the balance within our gut — foods either promote good bacteria or not-so-good. While there are some general rules, like eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, most individuals require personalized support to determine which foods support their unique gut microbiome.
Your Foodsmart dietitian is clinically trained to work with you to find what works and craft a plan specific to your needs and goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our program is driven by registered dietitians who are clinically trained in medical nutrition therapy to treat all conditions with nutrition. Unlike many "one-size-fits-all" programs, we take a personalized approach to understand who you are and what you're looking to accomplish and then develop a plan just for you. We've seen numerous clinical outcomes amongst our 1.5M members including helping those them lose >5% of their bodyweight and keep it off for two years. With those kind of long term results, we're confident we can offer the support you need.
We work on your schedule. Whether you are available to meet once a week or once a month, we'll be here. We develop a plan that is specific to you so whether you have a goal to reach in one month or six, we can create a plan to help you get there.
Unlike many programs, we're not focused on quick fixes or a one-size-fits-all approach. Our primary difference is you!
Whether you've been diagnosed with IBS or IBD, Celiac, Crohn's ulcertive colitis, GERD or a number of other gut-related conditions — we can help. We consider your specific case, your symptoms, lifestyle, and your goals and come up with a plan that you feel great about and that puts you on the path to feeling great again.
The program can be completed in as little as 8-10 weeks, but the length of the program entirely depends on your goals and the plan you develop with your dietitian. It is dependent upon how close or far you are away from your goals, whether you're looking to manage one or multiple gut-related conditions, and other factors like your health history. Your dietitian can provide a general timeline but, as you make progress or your goals change, we'll adjust the plan so we're always working towards your best you.
For most members, we recommend a visit every two weeks, though you are welcome to meet more or less frequently. This cadence will give enough time to make progress and have meaningful updates. If you need support in between visits, you may always message your dietitian.
