“Working on a brand like Activia and Actimel, I talk about gut health and probiotics every day. I admit that sometimes I thought that the stories I could tell to my consumer target were not so interesting… Couple of months ago, I took part to a marketing convention in LA and I got the honor to meet Sarah and to listen to her speech about “Gut health”. I’d never ever thought this topic could be so interesting and engaging! Sarah is such a good speaker, enriching her deep scientific knowledge with her personal experience! I wish everyone to have the chance to listen to one of her amazing talks! Grazie, Sarah, you are so inspiring!”

A Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut

 This is by far the best gut healing book on the market! I absolutely love the format of the book. I love how she gives you a place to take notes and she has a checklist for the 21 days(I love a good checklist). I love taking notes in books that I will keep forever so I can reference back to them. I also love all her relatable content, her vulnerability she shares, and how she helps you find your own healing journey and not a one size fits all approach. I have been following @agutsygirl for a while on IG and she has so much knowledge and incredible content. I would highly recommend following her and buying her book❣️

I have been struggling with GI issues for a long time and it’s only getting worse. The Gutsy Girls Bible came in the mail last week and I have devoured it from cover to cover, and will do so again right away it’s that good. It’s a page turner, packed full with so much wisdom and top tier guidance on healing one’s GI issues. Also, I really appreciate the acknowledgment to “the emotional side of illness”, found on pages 11, 12 and 13. I feel seen, and you will too!!!!

I’m trying to find the words to describe how finding Sarah Kay Hoffman AKA A Gutsy Girl has been transformational in my gut journey. I first found the podcast and have went all the way back to the beginning and started listening. Then I went to the website and it is packed full of useful information. I have both-A Gutsy Girl’s Bible and Healing Blooms from Within. I highly recommend both. It will change your life. Take it all in a little each day so you don’t get overwhelmed. Heal your gut heal your life. ❤️


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!

Shannon M.

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.

Rebecca Mooneyham

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 Website

“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!” 

Sonia Small

“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 A Gutsy Girl’s Bible as well. I’ve been using it as a reference the past couple weeks.” –

Health Coaching

I just wanted to say I just sooooooo appreciated Saturday and it’s already shown me so much. (Just even facing that I am more stressed/anxious than I like to think as I just naturally feel like that’s “bad” and do hate the thought of that having affected my health.) On a completely other strand, since Saturday I have meal-spaced and literally – my rib and abdomen pain has GONE. Sarah….I can not believe it!!!!! Anyways, just wanted to tell you!

Monica H.

“Sarah’s blog is a treasure trove of hope, inspiration & information. When I saw she offered an email service, I knew it was something I could benefit from. Sarah was prompt, professional, encouraging & kind. I’m pursuing additional diagnostic testing and once the results are in, I look forward to working with her again!”

Grace Cadwallader, Indiana

“Sarah knows her stuff. Even if, like me, you aren’t looking to address specific digestive issues but just want an introduction to healthier eating, she’ll teach you about foods you’ve never tried and nutrition facts you haven’t read in any magazines. She’ll ask questions, listen, and give you ideas and a plan that fit in with your life and address your specific challenges. Many months after working with Sarah on a week-long program, I’m applying the information she gave me to my nutrition and my activities.

Clover C.

“Starting the 21-day healing program was the best decision I could have made to start off my New Year’s resolution to get healthy again. I was in a terrible place before joining. I had all kinds of inflammation and felt weak/hopeless that I would be able to get better ever again. Immediately from starting the program, my health began to get better and my energy increased significantly. I even started to believe in the fact that I WOULD be able to heal. I’m truly thankful that people like Sarah exist to help people like me who need guidance and most of all, hope. I would do this program again in a heartbeat.

Anne Marie Urquia

“Until beginning the 21-day Gutsy program, I didn’t realize that healthy choices could still upset my bell. The Gutsy Girl (Sarah Kay Hoffman) herself has created a simplified and tailored program that promotes a healthy gut and mind!  I’m happy I tried it and it has been a pleasure working with her.”


“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 money 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!!” 

Amanda Smith Avila

“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!”

Naomi Nakamura

“Sarah is extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and helpful. She answered all of my questions and provided valuable advice. I am following her recommendations and am very hopeful for a healthier 2019! He blog is also amazing and full of resources.”
