Achieve lasting health—without cutting calories or following dieting “rules”!
Instead of obsessing about the quantity of food you eat, shift your focus to the quality, say Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper. The popular hosts of the Well-Fed Women podcast want you to make sure you’re getting enough food so that your body has the fuel and nourishment it needs to support a healthy, long, and energetic life.
Noelle and Stefani know firsthand about the ups and downs of dieting. Like many people, they have struggled with confusing and frustrating health issues such as anxiety, infertility, and hormonal imbalance—but when they discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food, they ditched the calorie counters and gave their bodies the nourishment they needed to heal. In the Coconuts and Kettlebells program, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day—setting a minimum intake of fat, protein, and carbohydrates to ensure that your diet is full of nutrients. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods that cause the most health problems—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step system to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on to feel better—and which you can eat without restrictions.
To help you discover how your body responds to the Big Four, you’ll choose from two simple 4-week meal plans: one for Butter Lovers, people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of fats, and one for Bread Lovers, people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of carbs. Each meal plan comes with weekly shopping lists and instructions on how to batch cook, meal prep, and stock the pantry. In addition, you get more than 75 simple and delicious real food recipes, including:
• Kale and Bacon Breakfast Skillet • Raspberry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl • Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp • Apple-Chicken Skillet • Moroccan Lamb Meatballs • Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak • Chocolate-Cherry Energy Bites • Lemon-Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes
To go along with the meal plans, you’ll find three 4-week fitness plans tailored to beginner, intermediate, and advanced experience levels. Best of all, the workouts can be done anywhere—at your home or on the road—and take no more than 30 minutes each.
A comprehensive whole-body program, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides the knowledge and tools you need to be healthy inside and out.

I have read through the entire book and tried a few recipes. I haven't gone through the whole 4x4 plan yet, but I plan to start in a few weeks. I have read through a few dozen books on nutrition/health/fitness before but I really enjoyed this one. They are really focused on total body/mind health, self love and healing and the whole book is just filled with love and compassion. Parts of the book put tears in my eyes when they talked about loving your body as-is!
So far I have really liked the recipes that I've made and I can't wait to try more. It is a little different than most other cookbooks that I have. The majority of the recipes that I have seen are fairly "basic". That's not to say that they are boring or lacking in flavor at all, but if you are an aspiring gourmet chef, it might not be your cup of tea. I think it's much better suited to someone who is busy and just wants to get healthy food on the table quick without a ton of fuss. Each meal plan has a full grocery list (such a time saver!) and instructions for make ahead meal prep to save time throughout the week. I love that part! I have had some books before that gave awesome meal plans but required making complicated dishes for breakfast lunch and dinner - I just don't have time for that!
If you're interested in a program to set you up for long term health, just a few good clean recipes, or have some food intolerances that you are trying to work out, I would give this book a try!
Thanks for the inspiration Noelle!
