MY BOOK: What’s the Deal with Paleo and Primal Eating? How can the paleo and primal lifestyle improve my wellbeing? Kelly O. Schmidt, a registered dietitian and leading voice in the paleo and primal lifestyle movement is a passionate health advocate who stumbled upon this lifestyle while uncovering the best method for managing her type 1 diabetes. In this book, Kelly explains the paleo and primal diet with supportive evidence-based research, through a conversational style, while providing insight on her personal journey and advice she is finding most valuable to her clients and in the paleo and primal community overall. REVIEWS: Amazing book! What great value! Easy yet informative read!!! Great read! I could not put this book down and finished it within 2 hours. Author, Kelly Schmidt, was very informative on how your diet can help benefit your body and lifestyle, yet Kelly is corky and realistic by mentioning in the first paragraph you can still eat chocolate (a must for me!)… Kelly sets the bar high when it comes presenting the research on this latest craze. Her easy-to-read conversational style makes this book a favorite on many bookshelves. Kelly discusses working paleo into a budget, which for many, is a top reason for lack of healthy easy (great job in dispelling this myth!). She even provides recipes that are simple and delicious! Thank you, Kelly, for providing another resource for use in my library. FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING: KBMO Diagnostic – $199/$399 A tool like this FIT Test can help cut to the chase of discovering what foods work best for your health and wellbeing. There are 2 testing options. The FIT Test 22 tests 22 foods and candida, where FIT Test 132, test 132 foods and candida. In brief, candida is yeast overgrowth and can occur and cause symptoms such as fatigue, sugar cravings, gut imbalance, PMS, and more. It’s a good thing to know if you have it, and diet can be modified to improve it. The FIT 22 tests the most common food sensitivities: gluten, whole wheat, egg white, egg yolk, cow’s milk, casein, candida, brewer’s yeast, banana, beef, broccoli, coffee, corn, chicken, peanut, tomato, white potato, almonds, pineapple, salmon, shrimp, and turmeric. The FIT 132 comes with a meal plan, and a phone all that your results, meal suggestions and foods that may cross-react with foods that are flagged for you (this will make more sense once you have your results).

Send Kelly an email ([email protected]) if you want to learn more about these testing options. DETOX PROGRAM & SUPPLEMENTS I use and recommend pharmaceutical grade supplements to help fill the gaps in one’s diet and to be used as a tool to support metabolism, blood sugar, gut health, and inflammation. While I recommend products from a few supplements companies, including Designs For Health, I may recommend different forms of the same nutrient as needed for different people. When advising supplements, I take into consideration a combination of symptoms, health history, current meds, diagnoses, and lab testing to sort what makes the biggest impact for you and your health.
