Peak Human - Unbiased Nutrition Info for Optimum Health, Fitness & Living

Oct 13, 2021

In this episode, I sat down with Kate Deering and Dr. Jamie Seeman for a fun discussion on nutrition and our metabolism. This was a great, civilized conversation between two people who have different approaches to nutrition. They both agree on a lot, including the importance of eating real foods, especially animal products, and avoiding highly processed foods like seed oils. They both have a great deal of experience in the department of women’s health and the effects of lifestyle on hormonal health.

Kate Deering is a respected personal trainer and holistic nutritional, exercise, and lifestyle coach. With more than 20 years experience in the health and fitness industry, she prides herself on her out-of-the-box methods that support metabolic health and improve health and body function. Kate has committed her life to finding the answers to optimal health, a high metabolism, and true happiness. Her own journey to health and happiness became the foundation of her teachings and helped her understand why health is not established with dieting and over-exercising but with self-love and an increase in cellular metabolism—usually achieved with eating more and working out less.
