In Episode #195, I sat down with Kelly LeVeque, a holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, celebrity health coach, and bestselling author of Body Love and Body Love Every Day. With a background in cancer and genetics research, Kelly returned to study a postgraduate degree in nutrition. She places a particular focus on eating to optimise blood sugar balance, developing personalised plans for her clients that consider lifestyle sustainability and ensuring they feel their best. Kelly’s focus and methods are a little different to mine, but our mission is fundamentally the same.
In this episode, you’ll learn about blood glucose control, the benefits of elongating the blood sugar curve, and how to do this. We also discussed the negative impacts of poor blood glucose control, and Kelly explained hunger hormones and how to regulate them. She shared her lifestyle recommendations, tips for sticking to dietary changes, and how her Fab 4 framework helps people improve their health and daily well-being. I hope you learn something new from this episode and appreciate the importance of broadening our scope to explore differing ideologies around food and lifestyle changes. It’s always eye-opening to bring alternative perspectives to the table.

More about Kelly LeVeque:
Kelly LeVeque is a holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, celebrity health coach, and the best-selling author of Body Love and Body Love Every Day. Her deep desire to help her clients, her passion for human nutrition, and her curiosity about how and why the body works drive Kelly to diligently study the latest research, evaluate competing theories, and use this information to make individualised recommendations for her clients. Most importantly, Kelly’s practical and always optimistic approach to nutrition and wellness helps her readers improve their health, achieve their goals, and develop sustainable habits to live healthy and balanced lives. Kelly’s website serves as a resource for her readers to find the latest research and rationale behind important nutrition principles as well as delicious recipes and recommended products to fuel them well. In 2020, she launched the Be Well Podcast to provide listeners with her nutrition and wellness wisdom and to introduce them to other health professionals with a wide array of experience and insights. With the desire to provide her coaching expertise to the public, Kelly developed the Fab 4 Fundamentals course, in which she simplifies the science of nutrition and empowers participants to confidently take charge of their health. She has expanded her nutrition curriculum to include a second course, Fab 4 Pregnancy, to provide mothers-to-be with the wisdom, encouragement, and thoroughly researched recommendations they need to nourish themselves before, during, and after pregnancy. Additionally, Kelly released the Be Well by Kelly Protein Powder to round out the Body Love toolkit. This protein powder harnesses the power and benefits of simple yet wholesome protein and can easily be used in one of Kelly’s favourite tools, the #fab4smoothie.
