Discovering Your Optimal Nutrition Strategy for a High Functioning Gut Microbiome and Improved Overall Health with Dr Gabrielle Fundaro

In this week’s episode of Healthspan Academy, Dr. Gabrielle Fundaro and I chat about the digestive tract, the function of the gut microbiome and its importance to the human body. We talked about genetic versus environmental factors on the microbiome and the effects of macronutrient balance and food on gut health. 

Dr. Gabrielle Fundaro has transitioned from the world of academia to an accomplished full-time nutrition coach, guiding hundreds of clients to achieve their long-term goals. She graduated from Radford University with a BS in Exercise, Sport, and Health Education in 2009 and went on to earn a Ph.D. in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise at Virginia Tech in 2014, where she studied the effect of probiotics on skeletal muscle metabolism. Dr. Fundaro previously taught nutrition for performance and health, physiology, and macronutrient metabolism as an assistant professor of exercise science at Georgia Gwinnett College.

In the spring of 2017, she got her CISSN as an ACE Certified Health Coach and ISSN Sports Nutritionist from the International Society of Sports Nutrition and began working as a nutrition coach with Renaissance Periodization.

She also interacts with peers as a board member of both the Nutrition Coaching Global Mastermind (NCGM) and the Sports Nutrition Association (SNA) to steer discussions and drive change toward best practices in the online nutrition coaching industry.
