Mad Props for my Skills

Praise from Kyle

Leanne was one of the first videos I ever watched when I decided I was going to go head first into keto. I remember being so impressed with your “What 6 Months Eating Keto Did to My Body” video, and you were doing it way before keto was as trendy as it is nowadays. My journey started over 2 years ago at over 515 pounds and since then I’ve lost 240 pounds and still going strong. Whenever there seem to be gaps in my knowledge I know I can always look to your videos for help. Keep up the awesome work. It means a lot to all of us.

Kyle

Praise from Amy Jo

I found your podcast just before I decided to try Keto. I was on my way home from a weekend in Boston and was driving back to NJ (February 2017) I listed to your podcast the entire ride and not only did I learn so much about Keto but I was fully inspired. I continue to eat Keto and listen to every podcast every week; it continues to inspire and teach me. I have lost 17 pounds and truly upped my game when in comes to my work outs — keto (and Leanne) have changed my life.

— Amy Jo

Praise from Kelsey

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Abuse. Bulimia. PTSD. Depression. Anxiety. Orthorexia. Exercise Addiction. Binge Eating. Fear. These words used to define me. Sometimes, they try to overcome my progress, but changing to a keto lifestyle has aided in my FREEDOM from things that debilitated me and robbed my joy. Because of a high fat, low carb lifestyle and becoming grounded in my faith, I am proving that wrong! Thank you for your resources, Leanne!

— Kelsey

Praise from Ryan

Leanne was a breath of fresh air and helped me realize that perfection isn’t necessary or healthy. I finally stepped away from MyFitnessPal, my Fitbit, my Ketonix, my labs, the scale, and actually started to care about what I was missing out on in the pursuit of “optimum health” and achieving a desired thinness. I’m still working on developing relationship with my body, food, fasting, and fitness — it’s a work in progress that I truly think I can achieve thanks to Leanne’s help.

— Ryan

Praise from Jessica

Found you when I needed you most. I have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, PCOS, sleep apnea, and many other health conditions. Started watching all of your videos and listening to podcasts and I have been eating keto for almost 2 months now. I have my own period after never having one EVER without birth control and I feel amazing! Thank you for everything that you do!

— Jessica

Praise from Chantelle

I have struggled with being overweight, autoimmune symptoms, PMS, migraines, insomnia and depression my whole life — and YOUR approach to keto diets is really helping me to answer so many of my questions about my health. My family has multiple food sensitivities (grains, dairy, corn, nuts, soy, nightshades, fructose) and we absolutely love your fat bomb ice cream (it’s scoopable!!!!) and focaccia bread recipes. I’ve adapted your focaccia bread recipe (to work with Seed Cycling for hormone imbalance) and I use it to make berry upside down cake, mexican “cornbread,” olive cheese bread, strawberry short cake, sandwich bread, birthday cake, and more! Thanks so much for all your research and hard work experimenting with recipes — it has really expanded our fun food horizons and tremendously improved our health and quality of life!

— Chantelle

Praise from Jamie

I just wanted​ to send you a message telling you how much I enjoy listening to your podcast. I found you on Instagram right as I decided to try keto. You have been so inspirational and I have learned so much from you. I tell my friends that I binge listened to your podcast because I listened to every episode since April this year, and I have enjoyed every one of them. I listen to them mostly while I’m running and get to the end of my run without even realizing it because I have been so focused on the information I’m hearing. I also wanted to tell thank you for the quality of the content that you share. I just wanted to share with you that I have enjoyed your show from the beginning but now that I’m caught up and trying to find another show I realized just how much I enjoyed it. Thank you for all you do for this community.

— Jamie

Praise from Staci

I recently decided to try a keto diet since I suffer from endometriosis and have tried a low fat diet, vegan diet, etc. and nothing has really worked. In doing some research I came across your website and it has been so helpful. I purchased the Keto Bundle and then your book The Keto Diet, which I absolutely love. Every recipe that I try is so good, even my 4 year old son loves them. My favorite so far is the chili stuffed avocados, such an amazing flavor. Your podcasts and videos are so helpful. Thanks for providing such great information!!

— Staci

Quotation mark

I just purchased your book The Keto Diet. I am super excited to dig into the Keto lifestyle. After trying low-carb, low-fat dieting and Weight Watchers, I am confident that Keto is the answer. I appreciate your videos and content!

— Lizzette

Praise from Michelle

I thank GOD I found your podcast after unsuccessfully trying to do keto for months, the internet is a confusing and conflicting place. I got The Keto Diet, my keto handbook, and I look forward to each and every podcast. I too come from a history of eating disorder (in my 30s, I’m now my healthiest and about to turn 50) so I love your fair, impartial, balanced approach and the fact that you speak openly about triggers! Love you! 

— Michelle

Praise from Susan

Enjoying your gooey St. Louis cake at lunch today. I was a little skeptical when I was making it but it is a-mazing! I chose it because I had all of the ingredients on hand…would make again!!

— Susan

Praise from Kelli

I would like to thank you for website, podcast, You Tube videos, weekly emails, and The Keto Diet Cookbook. I have been keto for about 3 weeks now and I feel like I have a tremendous amount of support from you. I have struggled with my body for years and ever since I found you, I have been rethinking my whole image philosophy. Thank you!

— Kelli

Praise from Amy

Leanne, I just wanted to thank you for being such a positive influence. I have been loving keto for the past year and a half, but just figured out quite recently that what matters most is that I haven’t been loving myself. I need to get to a place where my worth is not based on a number or what I did or didn’t eat in a day. YOU are helping me with that! I’m learning about myself, what works for me and learning to love myself in the process.

— Amy

Praise from Candi

I am a 70-year-old woman who has tried to eat well for years, but nothing I was doing was changing my bad report at my wellness exams. I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, was pre-diabetic, overweight etc. I have fibromyalgia, osteopenia, hypoglycemia, and hypothyroidism. My doctor wanted to put me on statins for my cholesterol for months & I finally agreed to take the lowest dosage he could give me. I took two pills and just couldn’t continue because I hate drugs. I was determined to change things myself with food. So I purchased The Keto Diet book, listened to The Keto Diet Podcast as well as practiced intermittent fasting, and at my very next wellness exam, I received a glowing report! He said I should be a poster child for the elderly. No need for statins, no more pre-diabetic, blood pressure was perfect. The best part of my visit was telling him I didn’t take the drugs. He was so surprised and wanted to know what I did. Leanne is just a love and her book is so informative and written so well that even an old lady like me can understand.

— Candi

Praise from Dani

I recently started eating keto through a competition at my gym. It involved a strict meal plan which included lots of eggs, bacon, cheese, heavy cream, fat bombs, etc. (and an exogenous ketone supplement… yuck.) I quickly realized this was just not the plan for me because the hunger was real, my body’s response to dairy was real and my fat loss results plateaued. After a lot of online research, I found Leanne’s YouTube videos and devoured dozens. I subscribed to the 3-month meal plan and bought The Keto Diet book. After 1 week of the meal plan, I have broken through the plateau and lost 4lbs and 2% body fat. Even though that’s great, the best thing is the yummy food, no dairy in my life anymore, and I feel full and do not want to eat my arm off at the end of the day. Now all my gym friends who are in the challenge are curious about what and I was able to convince several others to buy your book. You have majorly impressed me and I believe what you’re doing is more than clinical and not a one-size-fits-all canned plan. I look forward to making this journey my way of life and engaging with your plan every step of the way!

— Dani

Praise from Whitney

I ADORE YOU!! Your podcast is changing my life and the filter in which I view myself especially postpartum. It is no longer about weight loss, but feeling the best I can as a mom! I bought your Keto Diet book and am excited to join your Facebook group as well! Thanks from the bottom of my heart. I literally can’t stop telling everyone to listen!!

— Whitney

Praise from Sharon

After reading your blog for about a year I finally bought your book, The Keto Diet, and started eating keto almost 2 weeks ago. I’m 57 and fearful of Alzheimer’s, and my mind seems clearer and more focused. Yesterday, I found myself licking my salad plate to get all the yummy fat off of it! Thanks so much for all your info and help!

— Sharon

Praise from Sarah

You. Are. AMAZING! I have been struggling for years with health issues (joint pain, fatigue, weight gain, skin issues, depression, anxiety… the list goes on). I have been gluten free for over a decade and started Paleo three years ago. I have listened to paleo podcasts for years and continued to tweak my diet, hoping for a solution to my health problems. Paleo helped a bit but I still had all of the issues, just to a lesser degree. After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I tried autoimmune paleo and finally came across your podcast. I immediately went “keto” and within 3 days I had ENGERY, I could THINK, I was no longer depressed! I am now 3 weeks in and couldn’t wait any longer to let you know how thankful I am for you and your work. Not only is the content life changing, but you present it in such an easily digestible way. You are open and so thorough that you literally answer all of the questions I have before I can ask them. I could say so much more… but for now. Thank you for all you do!

— Sarah

Praise from Kelsey

I’m a long-time fan of your work. I started keto about a year and a half ago, thanks to your awesome Fat-Fueled plan. I got both the Keto Beginning and Fat-Fueled since I had no idea how to even shift to a high-fat diet. I have a variety of health issues (Lyme’s disease, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and all the accompanying fun things that those entail, the list is long so I won’t bore you) and shifting to high fat brought a lot of relief to the GI issues I was experiencing as well as helping me mentally. I too wrestled with anorexia for many years and so really, really appreciate how you approach the mental aspect of the relationship with food, body image, and health. 

— Kelsey

Praise from Jennifer

I just received your book (The Keto Diet) yesterday and I have only read a couple pages worth, but already I can see the similarities to my life and how this is going to give me the confidence I’m needing to continues on and fight the “haters.” I’m always the kind of person that reads everything before just jumping into something new. It’s amazing how no matter what I try to do to improve MY life, there is so much negative response when people don’t understand.  I just thought you should know you touched someone in need.

— Jennifer

Praise from Heather

I am loving your book, your podcasts, and all your videos! Since post menopause, I had most of the signs of pre-dementia, and this diet has been reversing them – it has been a true miracle for which I am eternally grateful. I believe it has saved my life. I plan to also incorporate the other health advice you give, such as yoga and breathing. Thank you so much for what you do!

— Heather

Praise from Sarah

Just want to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate the way you speak and write about health and life! I’m relatively new to keto but have been Paleo-esque for awhile. I came across your name after seeing your books on some Paleo sites and hearing your interviews on other keto and health podcasts. I now look forward to every one of your own podcast episodes and blog and Instagram postings. Thanks for keeping things health oriented with a practical and nourishing approach for women! I love learning from you!

— Sarah

Praise from Karine

WOW! That’s all I have to say. I came across your website a couple weeks ago and I can’t get enough. As a newly graduated Holistic Nutritionist, I am now questioning what I have learned in school and how I will be treating clients. You have definitely changed my way of thinking and I am on the path of recommending Keto-Healthful Pursuit style to my new clients. Thank you for being real, true to yourself and inspiring.

Karine

Praise from Ashley

I have been subscribing to the meal plans for a few months now, and I just have to say, THANK YOU for offering this service. It is everything I ever wanted in a food plan and more. I love that I don’t have to think about my grocery list or what I am going to eat because it’s all already laid out and all I have to do is shop and cook! For me, it is just perfect.

— Ashley

Praise from Robin

I have been on and off keto for years. I purchased the Keto Bundle a few days ago and read the whole book today. You answered questions I got from nowhere else – why I can’t sleep – why my carbs and calories are too low – thank you!

— Robin

Praise from Anna

Thank you, Leanne. I’m following you from Switzerland! I just cured fibromyalgia with your Fat Fueled version of the ketogenic diet in only 1 month (and lost 4kg) after several years of suffering, medications and expensive exams. Thank you for your videos!

— Anna

Praise from Tiffini

I’m loving The Keto Beginning Audiobook. I’m excited to order your upcoming book this spring! Thank you for your wealth of experience and positive attitude. I love your podcasts and articles.

— Tiffini

Praise from Pam

 Love your book and love your podcasts. I had an issue with my heart a year ago and it scared me into taking that expensive blood test for food allergies.  I had severe toxins from candida and horrible intolerance to sugar and turkey, among other things.  My cardiologist said it wasn’t food allergies causing my heart issues, but for the first time I said “not yet” to a doctor wanting to do surgery.  Six weeks later with no sugar, low carbs and healthy fats…heart issue is GONE!  My doctor was baffled, and one year later I am 50 pounds less.

— Pam

Praise from Tia

I’m new to the keto diet and am so grateful I’ve found healthfulpursuit.com– down to earth, approachable, holistic, but most of all, speaking to women’s specific needs. I find the lack of shame and the use of real food to be refreshing. Thank you for being a rational, reasonable voice. It’s the honesty that caught my eye. 

— Tia

Praise from Dara

Just wanted to drop you a note letting you know I tried making your flax seed muffins and was gobsmacked….best gluten-free baked good ever. I am just starting out with keto and my BF is joining me to be supportive. He normally is not very jazzed about any non-traditional baked goods (he hates any nut crusts, coconut rich subsitutions I try to come up with) but he was very impressed with the muffins. Looking forward to trying the chocolate ones later the week! Thanks for putting such an awesome recipe together! Keep up the good work!

— Dara

Praise from Lene

After I had my first son, I could no longer lose the weight that I’d gained during my pregnancy. For 8 years is was in a cycle where I would lose 1 lb. only to gain 5 lbs. My hormones went crazy, my hair fell out, I developed dark marks on my face, got skin allergies and chronic constipation, stress, insomnia and many other symptoms of metabolic damage.

Leanne has been my light at the end of the tunnel. She is beautiful, young and very committed to the ketogenic lifestyle. She presents herself as a human being, speaking about all of the problems she had before the keto lifestyle. It’s been a pleasure to follow Leanne’s videos and her delicious recipes. She presents everything we need to know to be successful with this lifestyle. She knows when, why and how much you should eat. I’m not in ketosis yet, I’m just following a low carb diet because I’m breastfeeding, Five months ago, I was 201 lbs. And just doing the low carb lifestyle, I am now 163 lbs and feel so much better! 

— Lene

Praise from Heni

I just wanted to thank you for a podcast from about 6 months ago where you talked about supplements you take. You brought me to Vitex and it was the best way to overcome my hormone imbalance completely. After 4 to 5 weeks I started to lose all my accumulated belly fat without exercising or changing my eating habits. I’ve been taking it for a little less than 6 months now and I’m really astonished and glad how well it worked for me. So thank you very much!!

 

— Heni

Praise from Sara

After 8 months, I am 80 lbs lighter. My chronic pain has completely disappeared and I haven’t even taken a single ibuprofen since June. I don’t track any macros. And… WE GOT PREGNANT! After ten years of infertility and two losses. Ladies, if you are trying to fix your hormones this really works! Listen to your body and run experiments on yourself to see what it responds to. Whenever I began to stall in my loss, I tried something new and I had fabulous results. I’m still considered overweight, but I have never felt as good as I do right now.

— Sara

Praise from Heather

I had been at a plateau in my weight loss for over a month. After watching your videos about fasting and carbing-up, I’m finally back into losing weight! Thanks for all the great tips. I enjoy learning about keto and all of its aspects. 

— Heather

Praise from Lo

I’ve been on the ketogenic diet for a little over a year now, and Leanne’s advice and knowledge have helped me tremendously. One of the hardest things for me at the beginning was finding foods that were keto-friendly and actually tasted good. After using all of Leanne’s recipes, I don’t struggle with sticking to a low-carb, high-fat lifestyle anymore. And I no longer have the symptoms of depression and anxiety that used to shadow me when I didn’t follow this way of eating. I used to wake up feeling tired and had to drink tons of coffee just to get through my day. Now after following Leanne’s advice and using her recipes, I’ve finally started to have mental clarity and energy, with ZERO cups of coffee.

Lo

Praise from Nina

I am so glad that I discovered your website, healthfulpursuit.com, and your fantastic podcasts! I have read a lot about how a keto diet could be beneficial for endurance athletes like me who race long-distance triathlons (Olympic and Half-Ironman distances), and I have already experienced this during my training sessions over this past couple of weeks, as I started doing some fasting and training in a fasted state: my energy levels are just never-ending, I can bike or run for hours, and there is no “hitting the wall” feeling anymore! So using fats as your primary fuel totally ROCKS :)

Nina

Praise from Amanda

I have had issues with my menstrual cycle and being on oral contraceptives. I saw my physician and she is supportive of my whole food keto lifestyle and is supportive of me going off hormones for birth control. I want to thank you for being so open about your experiences and inspiring me to find my path. I think I’m on the right path now to find what works to be my best self.

— Amanda

Praise from Cassia

Just wanted to thank you for being you, Leanne! I started binge watching your channel about two weeks ago and committed to keto after listening to your stories. We have a lot of parallels and I was suffering from extreme exhaustion and adrenal fatigue. Two weeks later and I’m already feeling SO much better!

— Cassia

Praise from Sonja

I’m loving your book! I love your approach and the fact that you do not stick to a “diet” 100%, but rather pick out what feels good for you and what works. I also like that when reading your book, I feel like I’m talking to a very good friend. I‘m just getting started with keto, but I have to say that I already love it. I feel much better than just going low-carb (which I have done for almost 6 months now). I do not have so many cravings anymore, intermittent fasting is so easy now, and my digestion has never been better.

— Sonja

Praise from Janita

When I was raw vegan, my gut played up severely and I was never full. My moods were erratic, and when I added cooked carbs and beans, my colitis flare-ups were pretty much a daily occurrence. After years of estrogen dominance and PCOS, I’m so pleased with keto now. In addition to that, I got the best news today– I got my period. (It stopped months ago.) You have given me the courage to let my body balance and heal. I stopped the progesterone and testosterone treatments and started keto, and things are starting to happen. I’m only a few weeks in and I feel like this is the missing piece of the puzzle.

— Janita

Praise from Pam

Once again, Leanne has found a way to take the stress out of holiday cooking while maintaining a ketogenic way of life. What I especially like is how Leanne has adapted her recipes to fit even the pickiest eater in our family. Vegetarian? No problem. Milk allergies? She’s got a solution. The dishes are delicious and easy to make, and her menu options help me to effortlessly plan. Thanks, Leanne!

— Pam

Praise from Sheldyn

Thank you for all of your positive videos and amazing knowledge. I used to eat fast food almost every day and I was 110kg (242 lbs), but I’m now down to a healthy 77kg (170 lbs). I started out eating paleo, but have recently changed to your keto eating plan and I am very excited!

— Sheldyn

Praise from Lorraine

I  find your information very helpful.  Recommended recipes help me stay on track and carb ups keep me happy and healthy. I found the key to a convenient, satisfying eating style and your advice has been an important part of that. Thank you. 

— Lorraine

Praise from Bev

I was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic with my A1C blood glucose levels at 6.2. I was shocked as I thought I ate healthy. Since then, I have been using your version of the keto diet. This week I went to my doctor appointment (2 months later). I was ECSTATIC, to say the least, when I heard the news of my blood glucose levels being at 5.6 from 6.2 in just 2 months! Thank you, thank you, thank you! This has been such a blessing to me. Now I must go discover and try out more recipes for my new lifestyle! I wish all the best to you and your endeavors!

— Bev

Praise from Pam

My husband & I started keto 27 weeks ago & it has changed us! Down 76lbs! No more sleep apnea, knee pain, IBS & so much more. You have inspired me along the way. 

— Pam

Praise from Shauna

I’m fairly new to keto and low carb (about 3 months) and I’ve never felt better. I’m totally addicted to consuming as much knowledge as my brain can take and it doesn’t feel like enough! I am amazed by what I’m learning, by what I’m feeling and by the desire I can feel inside myself to help people! I’m very inspired by you Leanne – thank you!

— Shauna

Praise from Bethany

Leanne and Healthful Pursuit have been a lifesaver for me, a recovering exercise bulimic, bulimic, binge eater and daily marijuana vape user. By switching to a keto/paleo lifestyle, I have decreased urges, binges, and negative thinking/ negative body image and have found more time for what’s most important, like my three children; as well as lost the drug habit! Leanne and her program fill in the gaps of keto info for women where Bulletproof, Jimmy Moore and others leave off.  Her experience with women’s issues and eating disorders are exactly what every woman needs to find not only their best self but their health and hunger for life again!

— Bethany

Praise from Winni

I’ve been devouring your No Sugarcoating podcast; I love you and Amber. I’m about halfway through the Fat Fueled Audiobook. I truly appreciate Leanne’s positive, “listen to your body” message. Please keep doing what you are doing. I am feeling so much better eating this way.

— Winni

Praise from M

I just stumbled upon your podcast and every single episode has resonated with me in ways I cannot even believe. I have been feeling pretty alone in my process recently- from my recovery from anorexia to struggling with keto (after having some of the same symptoms you had) and I just want you to know that you have helped me find the answers that I have been searching for.

— M

Praise from Amy

Leanne, I have learned so much from you! My three sisters, mom, and I are all eating your way of keto now. Because of your podcast I feel like we can all have a healthier relationship with food and a healthier view of what we want for our bodies. So thank you thank you thank you for who you are and what you do!!!

— Amy

Praise from Hayley

Leanne, you sent me on this journey and I am eternally grateful for all of the love and support you give your listeners.

— Hayley

Praise from Johanna

Leanne, I love you and your fabulous work! I am a type 1 diabetic living a low carb lifestyle. Finding your program Fat Fueled and your keto way was life changing and liberating for me. You have an amazing ability to think outside the box! Hugs from Germany <3

— Johanna

Praise from Kelly

I’ve been keto for nearly 3 months and your content on being fat fueled has helped me stick to it and feel good about eating healthy foods. I especially appreciate your female-focused discussions about hormones and overall nutritional needs. I finally feel in control of my life again! Thank you!

— Kelly

Praise from Jennifer

I listened to the podcast on Keto and Menopause and it was fantastic as always. Leanne, thank you for all you do. FIVE STARS!!!!

— Jennifer

Praise from Karmen

I’m not new to keto, but after listening to all the No Sugarcoating podcasts on a road trip, I decided to try the Balanced Keto weekly meal plans as a way to mix it up from eating bacon and eggs every day. I’ve tried so many meal plans and typically only tolerate the food and don’t stick to it long, but all of the meals on this week’s plan were SO GOOD! Leanne has this way of putting together ingredients and making it all taste amazing, and it’s easy too!

— Karmen

Praise from Chloe

I have been tracking macros, but for the last couple of years my hormones felt so off, and my energy was at its lowest. I already feel amazing by following The Keto Beginning, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thank you for helping me feel good again.

— Chloe

Praise from Dana

Before adopting Leanne’s version of keto, I was depressed, a chronic binge eater, felt little to no self-worth, and the person I envisioned in my head didn’t match who I saw in the mirror. Now I’ve lost over 60 pounds, my depression is gone (without medication) and I’ve regained control over my eating. Keto, to me, is more than just a “diet”, it gave me back my life.

— Dana

Praise from Breana

Fat adapting has truly simplified my life and gave me the energy to do what I love! Plus, Leanne’s approach to keto food prep is so effortless. Everything tastes amazing!

— Breana

Praise from Brandi

I started keto after stumbling across Leanne’s YouTube channel. So far, I’m down 20 pounds in 1.5 months. The best part is I have a ton of energy and no more brain fog! Thank you for all you do!

— Brandi

Praise from Emily

Deciding to go ketogenic was one of the best decisions I made. The keto lifestyle has not only helped me get closer to my goal weight, but it has given me an abundance of energy, has boosted my confidence, and has helped me overcome depression.

— Emily

Praise from Jo

Leanne’s approach to keto has changed my life beyond belief. It’s helped reduce inflammation in my body and keep my autoimmune condition in check. Thanks to keto I’m now back exercising and loving life!

Jo

Praise from Tiffany

In 26 years, I’ve tried pretty much every diet and weight loss gimmick that exists! Now that I’ve discovered keto (thanks to Leanne), I feel happier, healthier, and more successful (not to mention lighter), than I ever have in my life!

— Tiffany

Praise from Nicole

I have a fat disorder called Lipedema that makes my legs swell and makes it very hard to lose weight. It wasn’t until I found the Fat Fueled approach to keto that I was successful in losing 45lbs. Through a ketogenic diet, exercise & compression, I’m on my way to great things!

— Nicole

Praise from Georgia

I am 64 and have lost 41.5 pounds since January 1st. I didn’t start out keto, but as this has progressed, I have pursued more information on being healthy and not just losing weight, and am now on board with Leanne’s way of keto. It’s not a diet for me but a way of life. Leanne Vogel has been a big part of this!

— Georgia

Praise from Rachel

I signed up to eat Leanne’s women-freindly version of keto for 90 days in an effort to lose weight, but, after only a few months, I know I want to eat this way for the rest of my life. After struggling with binge eating for most of my life, I no longer have cravings, have been binge free for nine weeks and counting, have better energy, the brain fog I didn’t know I had has disappeared, and overall I’m a happier person. Thank you so much, Leanne!

— Rachel

Praise from Heddi

I started Fat Fueled 6 weeks ago and the pain in my right hip from osteoarthritis is almost gone. And because of my thyroid, I don’t do full Keto anymore. I found I can balance my blood sugar and my pain on the Fat Adapted profile from Fat Fueled. Thanks Leanne!

— Heddi

Praise from Karen

Thank you so much for your Q&A’s! I really learn so much from them. I have both of your books and I’ve just finished reading Fat Fueled. They are so full of information and recipes that my husband and I have been following. Both of us have lost weight and our blood labs are perfect!!

— Karen

Praise from Amanda

I have been an endurance athlete for 12 years now, a vegan for 3.5 years, and am now starting my Fat Fueled journey. I have found your recipes immensely helpful as I train for Ironman distance triathlons. I don’t have to eat as much during the workout, and I avoid the horrible gut-bombs and sugar fermentation bloat that so many athletes suffer from. I consider your recipes vital to optimal performance and stalk your website regularly to see what new brilliance shows up!

— Amanda

Praise from Karen

I’m a former vegetarian who ate lots of carbs, experienced daily sugar/salt cravings for years, and whose rising thyroid and blood sugar numbers caused her to shriek “But I’m eating healthy…aren’t I?!?” Since incorporating your blog/podcast tips into my life and purchasing the Keto Bundle, I’ve lost weight, my sugar/salt cravings are GONE, my bloodwork numbers are heading in a better direction, and I don’t feel beholden to well-meaning, but often out-dated, health advice. Thank you SO much for encouraging us to put on our Big Girl Pants, take responsibility for our wellbeing, and really *listen* to our bodies.

— Karen

Praise from Ashley

Your books have seriously changed my life. I had brain fog, I started to gain weight I couldn’t get off, and I was tired ALL of the time. I couldn’t get my doctor to take my complaints seriously. I started to listen to Fat Fueled and finally found myself a doctor that would listen. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s/Hypothyroid from my new doctor, and a month later following Fat Fueled and I am feeling SO much better.

— Ashley

Praise from Annette

What I LOVE about Leanne’s protocols is that they are for women. My favorite book (so far!), is Fat Fueled because it taught me not to worry about calories, macros and the other little things that cause added stress. I feel great, my obsessing over what to eat or not to eat is gone, and most importantly, I have learned to listen to what my body needs and doesn’t need, and that it is all a work in progress.

— Annette

Praise from Theresa

Thanks so much Leanne. Your encouragement is so helpful on my journey to healing my body. I have a long way to go but I will be bringing you along on the ride. Thanks for teaching me to listen to my body!

— Theresa

Praise from Janice

I’m new to Leanne’s version of the ketogenic lifestyle and I’m feeling better every day! I was starting to look and feel my age, and now I feel like my 30-year-old self and back in my sexy clothes! Life is good!

Janice

Praise from Alice

I have listened to all of your podcasts and YouTube videos over the past couple of weeks and both books as well. To tell the truth, I am on my 4th listening of Fat Fueled! I truly enjoy learning from someone who is so enthusiastic yet accepting of how different we all are from each other with “All Of The Things!”

— Alice

Praise from Jana

First of all, thank you for being absolutely amazing! I’m eating higher fat and lower carb now… I cannot even begin to describe how much better (and finally free and ‘in control’ of my cravings) I feel by eating keto! 

— Jana

Praise from Martha

I am a 64-year-old, overweight, prediabetic, worn out, stressed out, etc. woman who just discovered Leanne on YouTube. After two weeks on Leanne’s version of ketoI can relax, be balanced, have fun, and best of all stick to this way of eating that is going to change my life.

— Martha

Praise from Maddie

I started getting the Balanced Keto meal plan three weeks ago, and I feel AMAZING! The recipes are delicious and easy, and I am never starving. Before Leanne’s type of keto, I was eating paleo and would always have major carb or sugar cravings. After starting this meal plan those cravings have disappeared and I have lots of energy!

— Maddie

Praise from Jasmine

After reading Fat Fueled, I’ve found that Leanne is a ball of badassness covered in keto chocolate scrumptiousness and topped with a piece of bacon…and she’s smart!

— Jasmine

Praise from Ruba | Ruba Homaidi

On my own search for hormonal health, I’ve found it very difficult to sift through all of the confusing information that’s out there. I am thankful that in Fat Fueled, Leanne shares her own journey with so much detail and authenticity.  As an emotional eating expert who is learning and teaching people to listen to their intuition around food, I find it very hard to recommend books that dictate a certain way of eating. Even though Fat Fueled is primarily about eating high fat, the intuitive and experimental nature of its approach coupled with the mastery that is expressed in the way difficult concepts are simplified is beautiful. 

Ruba | Ruba Homaidi

Praise from Luise

I love this program! After watching some of Leanne’s videos, I decided to take a risk by eating high-fat. My body has healed SO MUCH over the past few months. Fat fueled is an awesome guide to eating high fat and healing your body. 

— Luise

Praise from Carol

Fat Fueled is full of practical information for living a healthy lifestyle of eating low carb/high fat. The program addresses many issues women may encounter while switching to a high fat eating style, however, my husband also found it very helpful.  I have had great success with this resource and want to thank Leanne for her work.

— Carol

Praise from Ricki | Ricki Heller

Leanne’s Fat Fueled program goes beyond addressing the keto diet with chapters on eating with food restrictions or medical conditions, balancing hormones, blood tests, shortcuts, and even a whole section on intuitive eating. Every question you’ve ever had about a keto approach is answered here! Whatever diet you follow, Fat Fueled is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in a healthful eating style.

Praise from Angi

I’m 25 and have struggled with amenorrhea for three years and have had a damaged relationship with food in the past. Thanks to Fat Fueled, I’m learning how to put my body first without the need for a strict regime and I’m gaining the confidence to listen to my body. I’m still on my journey to recovery and healing my body and am SO happy I’ve found Leanne as a resource!

— Angi

Praise from Airia

I have been eating a ketogenic diet for months now and as a researcher, I have seen, read and heard many approaches. Fat Fueled is the only reference written for women that begins by encouraging women to be kind to themselves and put their health first. I have been tracking my macros for close to a decade, but in the weeks since following the program (and stopping the tracking), I am down almost two pounds, I sleep 7 hours at night, and I feel so much more at peace with my body.

— Airia

Praise from Michelle | Peachy Palate

Fat Fueled provides a way for us to overcome the ongoing numbers game. Leanne has overcome her long-term battle with amenorrhea, while at the same time cementing her positive relationship with food. Fat Fueled is an investment worth making and has all the potential to be life changing.

Michelle | Peachy Palate

Praise from Lisa

The Fat Fueled program doesn’t talk about weight loss or restrictions, doesn’t give you international rules, but indirectly provides tools to create weight loss through caring about your body. The Fat Fueled Program has inspired me to listen to my body, eat way more fat and trust what I need to balance myself out.

— Lisa

Praise from Danielle

The best thing about Fat Fueled is that it feels like it’s written for ME. The keto space is so male-dominated, and when I tried those things that work well for men and found that they didn’t work for me, I was really discouraged. Fat Fueled validates that not only is there nothing wrong with not fitting into that box, there is no box! It is neither prescriptive nor restrictive, and that is a game-changer!

— Danielle

Praise from Lindsay

Reading this book feels like having a conversation with a who just happens to know a shit ton about compassionate nutrition from a fat-fueled perspective! The detailed plans for hormonal dysfunctions make this book a resource guide that will help you take the power back over your whole food nutrition. Bravo Leanne!

— Lindsay

Praise from Kelly | The Spunky Coconut

The Fat Fueled program is ridiculously thorough (and I mean that in the best way), but the way it’s written and organized is the opposite of overwhelming. Look no further, this is the only program on keto that you’ll ever want or need. I’m a long-time fan of Leanne’s work, and this is by far the best book she’s ever written!

Leanne has created an amazing resource in Fat Fueled that goes way beyond what we learned in The Keto Beginning! Fat Fueled addresses our individual needs and supports the various issues (thyroid imbalances, hormone issues..) that we might bring to the table that have affected our success with a strict keto approach. It’s a great resource and I highly recommend Fat Fueled!

— Theresa

Praise from Susan

I discovered Leanne and her Fat Fueled approach to keto on the advice of my naturopath. Struggling with hormone imbalances, PCOS, autoimmune issues and an insatiable addiction to sugar, I was at my wits end. Following the Fat Fueled approach has helped me find balance for the first time in my life. Thanks to Leanne, I’m living a happy, fat fueled life and feel better than I ever have.

Being a breast feeding mother, having the tools to nourish myself properly is of utmost importance to me. I’m not only providing myself with the nutrients I need, but also my baby with the highest quality choices available. Leanne has done a tremendous job at laying out the information in a concise, fun, and easy read with Fat Fueled.

— Lesley

Praise from Sonia | The Healthy Foodie

I’ve tried the keto diet in the past but as much as I wanted it to, it really didn’t work for me but after reading Fat Fueled, I am giving it another try. Unlike many other programs, Fat Fueled is not your typical one size fits all solution. You are given a plethora of different options to choose from and a vast assortment of useful tips and tools to help you along the way.

Sonia | The Healthy Foodie

Praise from Sam | Porter Loves Creative

Holy chock full of information Batman! Unlike other writers in the nutrition space, Leanne embraces that we are all individuals with lots of differences both inside and out. She put together this Fat Fueled program so that each reader’s journey can be a choose-your-own-adventure of finding what works for them, not just what worked for her. This unique approach is powerful and something I’m excited to explore further! 

Sam | Porter Loves Creative

Praise from Christal |Nutritionist In The Kitch

Leanne’s Fat Fueled is an amazing resource for anyone looking to follow a ketogenic way of eating with a non-diet approach. I love how Leanne outlines the incredible importance of taking care of yourself, listening to your body, ditching dieting mentalities, and truly embracing who you are as you journey the Fat Fueled Road to healing and better health.

Praise from Tiffany

I spent years believing in the low fat, low-calorie way of life and I have suffered from IBS and bloated tummy for as long as I can remember. Going Paleo helped, but I knew that there was a better level of health out there for me to achieve. Enter Fat Fueled. It is the program I needed to take my health to a new level, taking the guess work out of nutritional ketosis in an easy to understand, entertaining, and delicious way. 

— Tiffany

Praise from Megan

Leanne is extremely intelligent and hilarious. Fat Fueled is an honest and eye-opening look into using fat to balance the body that anyone can understand and implement for lifelong change. I have already recommended it to everyone that I know!

— Megan

Praise from Anna

Combined with The Keto Beginning, Fat Fueled is the missing and critical guide that the keto community desperately needs. As a woman, it’s easy to give in to feeling guilty over food choices; Fat Fueled has helped me learn to listen to what my body actually NEEDS and the stress (and pounds) just melt away! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book my whole life – thank you, Leanne!

Anna

Praise from Christina

I’ve always struggled with portion size and the “Fat Fueled Plate” diagrams she included in the book are incredibly helpful and easy to follow. Leanne always does such an amazing job at breaking down information and making it fun to read! She helps me see that I can understand my body and what it needs to be happy and healthy. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

— Christina

Praise from Jennifer

Since coming across Healthful Pursuit in January of this year, my husband and I have been following Leanne’s words of wisdom and ketogenic eating lifestyle. I have never felt better in my life, I have energy, I’m free from flu-like symptoms that used to plague me, and we’ve both lost weight! Thank you again for changing my life.

— Jennifer

Praise from Catherine

I love your food journal! It helped me see when I would eat and why and what I was eating the most of. And I “remembered” to work out more because of the space you provided for “physical activity”. It is the best food journal I could have used to reconnect and learn from my body.

— Catherine

Praise from Laurie | Live Long Live Strong

Leanne’s recipes inspire me to go deeper into my personal journey toward health and happiness. I look forward to learning more from all of the amazing resources that Leanne shares so freely on HealthfulPursuit.com. God bless you and everything you do.

Healthful Pursuit is a gold mine – recipes I actually want to make, with ingredients I have heard of before! I made a double batch of Leanne’s vegan cream of mushroom soup last night, and between me and my husband, it was gone by the time dinner was over. Thank you so much for doing what you do!

— Courtney

Praise from Stacy

Leanne’s work is amazing! My 10 year old daughter can not have sugar, wheat or dairy. Watching her feel left out from the treats being served through birthday parties, Halloween and Christmas was so hard for me to watch as a Mom. But then I found Healthful Pursuit! Because of Leanne’s delicious/healthful recipes she never feels deprived. In fact she has turned many of her friends onto your recipes and they love them too!! Whether it be at breakfast, lunch or dessert after dinner… my kids and I are enjoying at least one of Leanne’s recipes daily. Please don’t ever stop the amazing creative work that you do! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

Praise from Jan

I’m still not clear on why I have this eating disorder, but I do know that the side effects are literally killing me. I had been reading Leanne’s emails for awhile but for whatever reason, on one specific day, things started to click. I witnessed my thinking shift to love. I am confident, now, that I can put Leanne’s philosophy to use and turn my health around.

— Jan

Praise from Isabelle

My life has changed since finding Healthful Pursuit. I feel so much better. No more nausea, way less stomach issues, no more cheating on foods I can’t eat. I now crave green smoothies, cucumbers and fruits. It’s a new way of life and I am embracing it!

— Isabelle

Praise from Kelly | The Spunky Coconut

I’m a huge fan of Leanne and Healthful Pursuit! In her cookbook, Dessert Freedom, mouth-watering photographs and simple recipes with nutrient dense ingredients will have you falling in love with your “restricted” diet. Nothing short of liberating and inspiring as always.

Kelly | The Spunky Coconut

Praise from Catherine | Mint Grapefruit

Leanne’s work is a great resource for anyone who has decided to go dairy free. Reducing dairy intake can do wonders for your body and Leanne has some great recipes to help make the transition so much easier. Since I have gone dairy free, I have used Leanne as a resource a lot. Healthful Pursuit is my go-to dairy-free recipe blog.

— Catherine | Mint Grapefruit

Praise from Sylvia | Gormande in the Kitchen

Healthful Pursuit is an informative and accessible resource for those new to a dairy-free lifestyle without being overwhelming. The recipes she highlights show that being dairy-free is easier than you might think and provide great alternatives for people who need or want to remove dairy from their diet.

Sylvia | Gormande in the Kitchen

Praise from Dana | Zona Pellucida

All of Leanne’s dairy-free recipes helps to remove the sense of restriction out of going dairy-free. Her recipes offer delicious, easy, and fun alternatives to dairy products, leaving nothing behind to miss… except maybe acne or bloating. :) I can’t speak highly enough about Leanne’s recipes, and I would encourage anyone to give invite her recipes into their kitchen and watch their lives transform!

Dana | Zona Pellucida

Praise from Jennifer

Prior to discovering Healthful Pursuit last year, I had rarely cooked. As in, ever. Now I’m part of the Healthful Pursuit community, receive meal plans once a week and have created over 40 of Leanne’s dishes. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them. After following Leanne’s gluten-free recipes, I’ve been freed from bloating, pain, gas, and heartburn.

— Jennifer

Praise from Robin

I adapted the Healthful Pursuit way of eating and in just one week, the dark circles are fading from under my eyes and running to the bathroom has stopped all together. I am excited to get more information and keep following the recipes on Healthful Pursuit. Honestly, Leanne is my new favorite person.

— Robin

Praise from Annika | Annika Martins

Leanne has a knack for taking sometimes complex subjects and breaking them down into clear, easy-to-relate-to pieces. She takes out the confusion and uncertainty and leaves you with straightforward, useful information that you can put to work in your life right away. And the cherry on top is that she’s just a darn sweet, thoughtful human being. It’s obvious how much she cares about her work and the people she’s supporting.

Leanne’s recipes are outstanding. I feel like she is standing beside me in my kitchen saying, “YOU can DO IT! Don’t be afraid…experiment!” I find her posts uplifting and energizing. Leanne has helped me heal from the inside out. I am glowing, living with a lot less pain, and I’m caring for myself. If she ever publishes or hosts an event…I will be the first in line! Thank you Leanne for sharing your journey and encouraging me on mine!

Praise from Emily Kingyens | Massage Therapist

I’ve been watching Leanne realize her dream of saving the world one recipe at a time for years. I never expected one woman to make such a massive difference in the way people see food and manage their allergies. Her flare for creating great food catered to YOUR needs means you never have to compromise on flavor texture or fun! You’ll not find a more honest or inspiring holistic nutritionist.

— Emily Kingyens | Massage Therapist

Praise from Katy

Healthful Pursuit was there to guide and comfort me when I got into a hole of not caring for my body the way that I knew I should have been. Leanne is an absolute gem.

I do not eat sugar, dairy, grains, seafood, red meat, or alcohol, and some days that can be boring. Leanne has given me new ideas to cook with! Thank you!!!! With gratitude.
