Stella Metsovas    

Media Expert & Gut Health Specialist

Stella Metsovas, CCN, is a globally recognized clinical nutritionist, sought-after media health expert, dietary visionary and pioneer in the field of dysbiosis. She championed the importance of bacterial imbalance in the digestive tract a decade ago linking it to various diseases -- while the medical establishment is only now acknowledging its crucial importance.

With a degree in Nutrition and Food Sciences from Chapman University, Metsovas has been in private practice in Laguna Beach and Los Angeles, California, for ten years and has over 15 years experience as a shining presence in the health and fitness industries.

Metsovas has enabled hundreds of patients (high-profile celebrities and mega- corporate clients among them), to reclaim their health, happiness and energy through her profound understanding of the value of digestive health; Metsovas’ Wild Mediterranean THE AGE-OLD, SCIENCE-NEW PLAN FOR A HEALTHY GUT, WITH FOOD YOU CAN TRUST forms the backbone of a plan which helps her patients emulate the lifestyle found in Village to TableTM recipes worldwide.

Metsovas has visited remote areas around the world while traveling with the United Nations and their “Food for Work” program, enabling her to interview healthy villagers (with the help of interpreters) about their longevity secrets, including lifestyle habits, diets, and personal philosophies. Scientifically curious to get to the root of nutritional health, she even researched the farming methods of potato crops in the city of Ayacucho, high in the Andes of Peru.

Metsovas, a first-generation Greek American, was not only raised on the Mediterranean diet and with the wisdom embraced by her own elders, but she knows first-hand how a nutritionally- unsound diet can lead to serious health problems. She herself dealt with such problems in her adolescence when her native Mediterranean fare was abandoned for a so-called athlete’s high- performance carb diet, to dire results.

Articulate, accessible, facile, super-knowledgeable and stunning, Metsovas is recognized as an expert in the areas of nutrition, healthy cooking and the Mediterranean Diet, longevity, beauty tips, wisdom of the elders, and especially on intestinal disorders and gut health. That’s why editors repeatedly call on her for interviews from such popular publications as The New York Times, Byrdie, Glamour, Shape, Prevention, Redbook, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, People, Men’s Health, Reader’s Digest, Vogue, among dozens more.

In the commercial arena, Metsovas developed the highly-successful “Digestive Detox” for Botanic Choice (one of America’s most respected vitamin companies, established in 1910) with more than one half million kits sold and has created a new product for the company Gut-PacsTM (a vitamin and mineral formula for detox and cleansing) launched in the New Year. She’s also responsible for recipe development for Complete Nutrition, a national chain of vitamin stores. In addition, she’s worked with high-profile surgeons to supply pre and post-op diet plans for their patients. Metsovas is a respected (and requested) public speaker as demonstrated by her recent featured appearance at the California Women’s Conference. This past year alone, Metsovas has spoken live to over 15,000 people.

A former National USA Swimmer, Metsovas trained under the top U.S. Olympic swim team coach and competed at the Junior Olympic and National levels. She maintains her youthful and athletic good looks, along with boundless energy and enthusiasm for her chosen field by practicing what she preaches. This winning combination, plus Metsovas’ warm professional and knowledgeable demeanor make her a natural to promote the WILD MEDITERRANEAN diet – and the healthy digestion movement she knows will change the way America eats and lives.
