Episode Description

Reading food labels can be tricky - made even more difficult by the misinformation provided by manufacturers. But, reading and understanding nutritional information and labels makes a world of difference when it comes to your health. Just because a product says "zero trans fat" on the front of the package doesn't mean it actually has zero trans fat. These types of deceptive practices will be explained with the help of Michele Simon, public health lawyer specializing in legal strategies to counter corporate tactics that harm the public’s health and author of Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back. She'll help you make sense of what's happening and what to look for when you're shopping.

Kellie’s philosophy is that there is no one-size fits all diet. Because of bio-individuality (each one of us is different), most diets will work for some people and not for others. We need to eat nutrient dense, whole foods that have been properly prepared. We need real food, as close to the form it was originally grown and raised in, prepared in a way that preserves or even enhances the nutritional value of the food.

Kellie believes that it is important to investigate how the body is using the food as well as understanding what is happening in the bigger context of an individual’s life. She knows that we are obviously more than what we eat and that can have a very big impact on how the body deals with food.

Kellie is the author of The Right Plan Two Week Fat Loss Program and Cleanse and Detoxify Your Body: 28 days to Better Health Using Nutrient-Dense Whole foods.
