Finding good and reliable information on gut health blogs on the internet can be challenging. For information to be useful for you, it’s important that it’s written by someone who knows their shit (pun intended).
So today I’d like to share the gut health blogs that I follow on a regular basis. These blogs are either written by professionals or non-professionals with a lot of experience in gut health. The non-professionals often have their content checked by professionals, and personally I think that’s the right way to go.
So here we go on my list of favorite gut health blogs!
My List of Favorite Gut Health Blogs
This is probably the blog that I’ve been following for the longest on this whole list. And it’s also probably one of the more difficult ones to follow.
Gut Microbiota for Health is the blog of the European Society for Neurogastroenterology & Motility where a lot of the latest studies about gut health are being translated to easy to read summaries of the study.
To be honest, the blogs can be a little scientific but often there’s a lot of valuable information there! It’s always up to date and there’s new content every week.
Apart from that, they also provide infographics, videos, useful links and publications that make the research easier to understand.
This website was started by 2 women (the Mac twins) who have an interest in gut health. Being twins, the girls have participated in medical studies to see the influence of several factors on people with the same DNA.
The Mac twins work together with specialists in gut health to create content for their website, host events and produce videos where they provide a clear explanation for gut health related subjects.
Karlijn’s kitchen is a FODMAP related blog from the Dutch blogger Karlijn. She has Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and is following the low FODMAP diet.
When she started the low FODMAP diet, she soon found out that it wasn’t the easiest diet to follow. She decided to share her knowledge online, and now, a couple years later, she has a beautiful and informative blog!
Karlijn’s Kitchen is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for low FODMAP information or recipes.
Kate Scarlata is a registered dietitian that has links with the Monash University (you know, the one that does a lot of the FODMAP research!).
On her blog, she addresses IBS related issues and FODMAP information.
A Balanced Belly is the blog of health journalist Jenna Farmer. Jenna has crohn’s disease and has followed a gluten-free diet for a long time now.
On her blog she shares gut-health information and recipes.
Alana Scott is the founder of A Little Bit Yummy, she decided to start the website after she was diagnosed with celiac disease and IBS and found out about the difficulty of the FODMAP diet.
On her website, Alana shares recipes and information about the low FODMAP diet. One great factor of her website is that everything is being checked by a registered dietitian! How cool is that?! She writes the content herself as an experienced dieter and then has the content checked to ensure that no mistakes have been made. A great source of information and recipes.
She Can’t Eat What? Is the blog by Emma Hatcher, the author of ‘The FODMAP friendly kitchen’ cookbook. On her blog, Emma shares even more recipes! She started the blog after she was diagnosed with IBS and wheat intolerance, to make following the diet a little easier for everyone.
Futurity is a website that features the latest scientific discoveries from universities in the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Australia. It is supported by multiple universities and is a nonprofit website.
Multiple subjects are being covered on the website, and the microbiome is one of them. The blogs on the website are very informative, but not always practical to use in daily life. Nonetheless, a fun way to learn more about the microbiome!
What are the blogs you follow on a regular basis? Please let me know in a comment!
