Say goodbye to cravings and food drama and experience more balance and joy every day with this structured yet flexible 30-day plan based on Kelly LeVeque’s bestselling Body Love, illustrated with 16 pages of color photos and filled with delicious, easy recipes, invaluable advice, and inspiration for daily living. In Body Love, Kelly LeVeque shared her popular science-based “it’s-not-a-diet” approach to clean eating, weight loss, and wellness, centered on the Fab Four—protein, fat, fiber, and greens. As Kelly (and modern science) has shown, eating the Fab Four balances blood sugar, helps you eat and feel full, and naturally turns off your hunger hormones. Now, Kelly is back with exactly what her fans want: an action plan for adopting the Fab Four lifestyle. Kelly knows that women aren’t all alike. To address their different needs, she has created comprehensive 30-day plans for five different kind of archetypes: Red Carpet Ready: the woman who wants to look and feel her best for an upcoming vacation, wedding, or other big occasion. Girl on the Go: the woman who want to find balance and consistency while juggling a hectic or demanding schedule. The Domestic Goddess: a woman—urban or suburban—whose home is her sanctuary and the kitchen her happy place. The Plant-Based Devotee: the woman who wants to live the Fab Four lifestyle without meat or other animal products. Whether you’re one or a combination of these archetypes, Body Love Every Day provides a plan to help you achieve natural wellness for the body, mind, and soul. You’ll find food and nutrition information for every meal, exercise and movement for every day, stress management and energy recharge for nights and weekends, and emotional support to get you through the inevitable tough times. If you’re looking to live healthier or drop a jean size, boost your fitness or just feel better, Body Love Every Day is your guide to success.
