Gillian McKeith (born 28 September 1959) is a Scottish nutritionist, television presenter and writer. She previously hosted Channel 4's You Are What You Eat and Granada Television's Dr Gillian McKeith's Feel Fab Forever in the UK for several series. She writes a weekly column for Reveal magazine and is the author of a number of books about nutrition, including You Are What You Eat: The Plan That Will Change Your Life (2004).

The British Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has found McKeith guilty of "selling goods without legal authorisation whilst making medicinal claims about their efficacy". In an article entitled "A menace to science", Dr Ben Goldacre criticised McKeith for using a number of legal threats to silence critics of her work. His book Bad Science dedicates a chapter to a detailed rebuttal of McKeith's scientific credibility.

Health professionals have criticised her nutritional advice and questioned the validity of her qualifications, specifically her PhD. Another issue was "informally resolved" in 2007 by the ASA following a complaint that her use of the title 'Doctor' was misleading because her PhD was from a college not accredited by "any recognised educational authority". She then agreed to stop using the title 'Doctor' on her products, claiming she understood the complaint to be about one leaflet's failure to note her PhD "without the usual disclaimer she was not a medical doctor".

McKeith's programme takes a holistic approach to nutrition and ill health, promoting exercise, a pescetarian diet high in organic fruits and vegetables, and suggesting the avoidance of processed and high-calorie foods. She recommends detox diets colonic irrigation and supplements, also making statements that yeast is harmful, that the colour of food is nutritionally significant, and about the utility of lingual and faecal examination. Amanda Wynne, senior dietician with the British Dietetic Association, said: "I think it is obvious she has not a clue about nutrition. In fact her advice, if followed to the limit, could be dangerous. Her TV programme takes obese people and puts them on a crash diet that is very hazardous to health."
