Shelby Webb is Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant who became passionate about the healing power of food after seeing its benefits in mitigating the symptoms of her Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a very common hormone disorder. Shelby lost 30 pounds and nearly 1/5 of her body weight by incorporating the principles of the blood type diet and now helps others do the same. She encourages her clients to eat whole foods and to make sustainable lifestyle changes for long-lasting results.
We cover so many fascinating topics in this episode, but one of the most interesting is the Blood Type diet. This is what finally connected the dots for Shelby and really gave her body what it specifically needed nutritionally. It’s amazing to compare the blood types, body types, and nutrition types and see how so much of the science actually validates our own experiences. We can’t wait to test Suzy’s blood and see if our hunches are true! You won’t want to miss this fascinating conversation!
