The Leaky Gut Meal Plan
These (and many more!) can be found via Amazon HERE.
I was diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome a year ago and have finally started to heal my gut with the help of this book and Sarah’s helpful blog/IG account. I’ve had to tailor a few recipes because of some sensitivities I seem to have to fodmaps but this has been fairly easy using the allowable amounts per food listed in the MONASH app. I’m on week two now and my lower belly bloat is gone- looking forward more healing in the upcoming weeks! I’m eating so much more healthily and am satisfied by the good recipes (so far I’ve liked all the recipes but the smoothies). Definitely a wonderful, comprehensive, and easy to read book to have in your arsenal for gut healing!
The information given about gut health at the beginning of the book was very informative, easy-to-read and easy to understand. The meal plan is very complete with full shopping lists, delicious, easy-to-make recipes, and what you are trying to achieve each week of the plan. There is even more good information at the end of the book. We made our first recipe last night and loved it! I have a good feeling that I will be feeling even better after following this plan. Highly recommend.
This book serves as a condensed mini course on healing leaky gut. Consulting one’s medical team should always be a first course of action, but this book covers the explanation behind definitions and lays out a month of meal plans with recipes and shopping lists to set you up for successfully implementing a protocol to set you on a road of healing your leaky gut. Love that she includes references in the back for further reading as well. While there are some food pictures, there are not ones for every recipe, so that might be a drawback for some readers. She suggests some supplements and warns of the dangers of bad ones, but doesn’t include any suggested brands. Overall, though, this is an excellent book.
The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut
“I love Sarah’s e-book. Every page has valuable information that is vital for any person that has a digestive issue.
I have tried to implement a lot of the tips and knowledge available in every page. Chicken broth has become a regular staple.
Thank you Sarah for your hard work and dedication to all of us dealing with this daily. Some days are better than others but implementing your tips always helps.”
I am so thankful to have found A Gutsy Girl through Instagram! Early last year I was diagnosed with SIBO and a Leaky Gut (on top of my Hashimoto’s) and even after months of seeing different specialists, recording my meals, dieting, and taking pretty much every stool softener and laxative known to man, I was still feeling AWFUL. In comes A Gutsy Girl whose posts and e-books (I have them all!) are well-written, easy to read, and extremely educational. One size does not fit all and Sarah makes this very clear, however she gives you the tools you need to make educated decisions in a centralized document so that you can refer back to it when needed. This book, along with her other ones, have helped guide me toward a ‘healthier’ life, (a word I learned is SO subjective) and given me the tools to support my body and find a functional heath practitioner that wants to do the same. Before last year I had NO idea how the state of your gut literally affects your entire life and every body system (GI, reproductive, neuro, and mental health just to name a few!). Since reading this I have recommended it to my mother and friends. Anyone who is feeling lost and doesn’t know where to begin should get this book and also look at the Instagram posts for inspiration. THANK YOU <3
“Hi Sarah, this is really just a simple e-mail to say thank you and that I really appreciate ur website and your honesty. Living with Colitis is not easy, but I, like you, make the most of every day.
Your story empowers me and it is encouraging to know that there are other people out there that understand the daily struggle, I have been following for over 5 years now and it is just reassuring to know someone else feels the same!
We are similar, looks wise and also in mindset. I live in England and follow your story every day. Thank you – I wish you the best in life. Thank you for your wisdom and I wish you the most happiness. Lots of love!”
“I just wanted to say thank you for everything you do in your blog and all the questions you answer. When I was desperate for answers I started reading blogs and yours was the one that I kept going back to the most.
I finally felt like I found real answers in reading about “gut healing.” There is so much out there with leaky gut, sibo, and candida. All which are not taken seriously by MDs sadly. After reading your posts I felt less crazy and it started my journey to finding a holistic doctor.
I went through a couple before I found my match. I’ve been gut healing for 8 months now and I have not felt that good in years. I’m still missing that 100% feeling great but I’m close. I still get frustrated when out of the blue I start to feel nauseous and start to panic, but I know it’s better and less intense.
I also need to accept that my gut may just need more time and that I no longer have a grocery list of symptoms. It’s not a perfect but your journey and others has taught me to keep going because it took time to get bad (Years of being brushed off by doctors), so it will take some more time.
I so value all the help you have given me and I continue to read all your posts because I’m still healing and learning. Thank you again.”
“I cannot thank you enough for the wealth of info on your page!!! Have been dealing with autoimmune issues, food sensitivities, constant bloating, have had numerous tests done and seen numerous specialists including GI, allergist/immunologist, and have tried numerous meds they prescribed and a gazillion supplements over the past year and a half.
I cut out dairy, soy, gluten, following Low FODMAP diet, yet still suffering daily. So I started reading a lot of your articles and things you post; trying some of the supplements/replacing others. The difference is already phenomenal!!!! thank you, thank you, thank you for providing people like me resources and knowledge to try to heal.
Seriously, I’m already so much less bloated and I feel like that knot that’s been locked in my stomach for months is so much more relaxed. You helped me figure out what I believe so many specialists were missing!”
“‘Hey Sarah! I just wanted to say your page is honestly so great. I’ve been following a handful of “healthy” pages for a bit trying to get some tips to heal my gut, but yours has been, by far, the most researched and applicable information.
I appreciate you only share evidence based claims and NECESSARY changes, not supporting this trend where people go “Keto” for no reason. As someone trying to heal from this autoimmune mess and SIBO, I just wanted to say thank you!!
Please keep it up!! And I love The Gutsy Girl’s Bible as well. I’ve been using it as a reference the past couple weeks.” –

“Sarah has helped me change my diet! My energy has taken a complete 180 I feel great just within a little over a week!”
“The “Gutsy” approach is a way of life, not just a 21-day do it and forget it program. I have to apply it daily for my own health and well-being. I have more pep in my step than I have in a long time and I feel great!”
“After many years of battling my intestinal and food allergy issues, I enlisted the help of Sarah to guide me through healing myself. Her compassion, knowledge and encouraging support have enabled me to learn more about my body and the power of food in healing more than I ever could have imagined.
I am no where near the finish line, which is why I have enlisted Sarah’s help for at least 6 months. The best winners have the best coaches and with Sarah I have just that. Me and my health are worth the investment in her.”

“I recently completed the 21 day program this book is based off of. It was both life changing and eye opening.
If you have ever had any kind of gut/digestive issues, then this is $9 well spent. It’s a wealth of information and a TON of super yummy recipes. I cooked/ate most of them exclusively for the 21 days.
Sarah is a fantastic teacher and the knowledge you will gain is like nothing else. The biggest thing I learned was “Nothing
changes, if nothing changes!” Check it out!!”
“Working with Sarah Kay Hoffman was a life-changing experience. She helped me understand digestive issues I had been diagnosed with and gave me practical, actionable advice that I could implement immediately to help me heal.
She inspired me to go to nutritional school to become a health coach myself. And I continue to work with Sarah because she is so good!”
