Publisher's Summary

Celebrity favorite health and wellness consultant Kelly LeVeque shares her secrets for losing weight, attuning ourselves to our bodies' needs, and freeing ourselves from food drama in this essential wellness guide.

In this inspirational yet practical book, the nutritional consultant and holistic health care expert who has helped celebrities improve their health and achieve their goals shows you how to get beyond the food drama of cyclical fad diets and feel and look great by eating well.

Kelly has studied the science behind familiar diets to understand how they trigger the body to lose pounds - and why they aren't sustainable. Instead, she offers a better choice: her four-step Food Freedom program that helps you find your wellness balance between eating enough and deciding how you feel. Once you find your balance, you will lose weight, lose fat, increase lean muscle mass, and drop at least one size. You'll also enjoy thicker, shinier hair; clear, glowing skin; a remarkable improvement in your overall appearance; reduced joint pain and other inflammations; increased energy; and better sleep.

Kelly's Food Freedom program helps you set yourself up for success, eliminating cravings, mood swings, and other symptoms caused by food drama. Start your day with her Be Well Smoothies, which pack protein, fat, fiber, and carbs to balance your blood sugar and keep you full and happy. After breakfast, you'll thrive with her Be Well Bowls, which include the Fab Four food groups - protein, fat, fiber, and greens - that play a role in day-long satiety. Kelly also teaches you how to elongate your blood sugar curve to stay full and happy and make yourself insulin aware.

Filled with tips and resources on supplements and cleansing, dozens of delicious, healthy recipes, and advice on how to adjust your eating when traveling and on vacation, Body Love is your one-stop resource to living clean and happy!

Knowledge is Power!

This book was really interesting. Although I glazed over a little with the beginning facts, it was all so interesting and I know Kelly broke it down as simple as possible. I really enjoyed the 2nd half of the book where she gave lots of guidance. I know I'll be making some major changes in my life, but it sounds like I should- like everyone should!
Kelly is upbeat and bubbly as she reads the book. Although I bought the book on audible, I will be buying the actual hard copy because I want to hold it and reread sections. You do get a PDF when buying the audible book.
Thanks, Kelly! You are amazing!

Not what I expected

Thought it would be this wonderful and informative book however I didn’t start learning anything until chapter 11 out of 14 chapters! Most of her book is random texts from her clients. She seems like a smart girl but I was hoping for more information and less random information that had nothing to do with health and more to do with boasting about herself.

Skip the sales pitch

What did you like best about Body Love? What did you like least?

Having a hard time getting through this book (audio version) - it feels like I am listening to an infomercial for a helpful product - this is what you will learn! "Are you ready to shake and bake?" "Get off that blood sugar roller coaster and you balance your hunger hormones - fewer big crashing waves and more mellow rivers." Why multiple chapters of telling me what I will learn instead of just giving me the information? Probably because there would be no book to listen to. It is mostly sales pitch, client experience (even reading text conversations - always interesting, not!) and repeated information. Client, "OMG!" Me, "Hey girl hey!" - seriously? She started to give some detailed information and then said, "Lesson almost over!" Most of the information seems to be in the additional 150pg addition. I'm listening to this for the lessons, not the repeated sales pitch. While the information is good, skip the audio book so that you can just flip to the actual helpful information.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I heard the author in a podcast and was impressed enough to buy her book - so different. She went from serious and professional to infomercial salesperson.

Did Body Love inspire you to do anything?

Not for your average person.

Unless you are really into the science of nutrition this is not the book for you. Unlike what she promises, this is a difficult diet to follow all the way. Like the idea of smoothies for breakfast and she's got some good recipes if you like eating lots of meat. But to follow all the way is very difficult if you are an average person trying to be healthy. Bummed me out.

It's like listening to a therapist or a friend!

This book is a game changer. Kelly speaks to you like a capable, intelligent person. She doesn't dumb things down. She really wants you to understand the science behind cravings and lack of control so you know how to recognize your body's messages. She's super motivating and realistic. It's like listening to a friend or a therapist who can keep you get motivated but also help you dig deep and understand the why behind your messed up food habits. I'm feeing so great and have stopped snacking because I'm always so satisfied with my meals. I'm looking forward to updating this review with results.

Yass girl! So good!

I was blown away by this book! I am decently knowledgeable about nutrition and the science behind how we process different things, I can see if you were starting with zero knowledge how you could get lost. However, I feel if you pay attention Kelly breaks the science down in a pretty basic, simple way. This book is not a diet book based on a theory or how to lose weight, it is factual and gives you the tools to live a truly healthful life. I feel some of the bad reviews on this book are coming from people that live an unhealthy life and can’t comprehend the changes she is suggesting (from the few reviews I’ve read anyway). If you are looking for a quick way to lose weight the easy way (and gain it all back ASAP) this book isn’t for you. If you want to be the healthiest version of yourself and want guidance on making the real life changes to do so this is the book. For me when it comes to maintaining my nutrition goals knowledge is power... and motivation for me! Another thing that was interesting to read in other reviews is that a bulk of the book is about text from high profile clients and her boasting. I didn’t get that at all she mentioned a few that went along with a purposeful story. People are too touchy. Also if I was coaching Jessica Alba through her diet/nutrition I’d be mentioning it as well! I will be reading this book a few times to really retain all the info. So good!

eye opener

Wonderful book! Kelly really lays it out from a science point and how you should look at ALL foods. This book isnt about what you can't eat but why you should eat clean foods and if you want that sticky buns, then ok here's how to reset yourself. Highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to change their views and mindset on food.

I kept waiting...

The book had some good information in it, but I feel like it could have been an article, rather than an entire book. I kept waiting for more information, but it was really just a lot of testimonials and scientific jargon that I did not understand or care about. I wanted a simplified explanation of what was happening in my body and real life examples of how to change. I just don't think this is a good audiobook. It is probably better in print where you can look at the recipes and skip around the book.

Great ... more than just a Healthy book

I think the approach is fantástic! Is not just the way we eat, is more...the way we think, feel and want...for me is an complete book.

Our mindset and emotions aré first, then the food

Love!

I love this book!
I first heard Kelly on Rachael Hollis’ podcast - Rise - and from that moment was hooked.

I’ve struggled for years with weight issues, PCOS causing infertility and have yo yo dieted and binge eaten my way through life. When I heard Kelly mention her book I jumped on and grabbed it right away.

I love that she explains in detail WHY eating this way works for your body and the benefits and science behind her fab 4 lifestyle. It’s easy to grasp and has changed the way I view food and my body. Thank you Kelly for sharing your wisdom and changing my relationship with food! My husband and I are now able to raise our children with a healthy understanding of food and how to eat to have the best lives they can.

This is a must read for anyone who struggles with understanding their body and how to eat right!

I have revisited Body Love over and over

This book is a game changer. I love that Kelly describes nutrition in an easy to follow way but also goes into the science behind it. Her Fab Four guide has helped me with my nutrition. I have read and re read this book numerous times. My health is improving and I now have a much better handle on what is good for me and what isn’t. My husband has just found out that he needs a triple bypass and I am going to follow this guide for both of us. To give him and me the best possible health.
