It has never been more confusing to figure out what to eat. It seems like every ‘health guru’ out there has a different opinion, which is why it is no wonder that millions of people fail at these fad diets every single year. The truth is, no fad diet is sustainable. Controlling your health through what you eat comes down to three simple truths. Hormones matter more than calories, real whole foods are best, and it is always important to take your blood sugar balance into account when it comes to what you are feeding yourself and your family.

Not Another Fad Diet
Maintaining blood sugar balance through real food is critical for supporting brain function, mood, energy, reproductive health, and overall metabolism. While the fad diets out there will try and convince you that you need a magic pill to achieve this, all you really need is a whole food and an understanding of what is happening with your blood sugar throughout the day.
Kelly’s Fab 4 Philosophy focuses on proteins, fats, fiber, and leafy greens to help both adults and children balance their blood sugar through food and create generational, long-lasting health. When it comes to creating metabolic flexibility, you need to be strategic about what you are putting on your plate so that you can show up for yourself and others.
