About Kate

kate-deeringFor over 20 years Kate Deering has been involved in the health and fitness industry helping men and women of all ages achieve optimal health and wellness. Kate’s practice is based on a holistic approach to health and wellness by looking at the entirety of a person’s well-being.  A person’s well-being includes diet, stress, exercise, posture, sleep, digestion, hormones, mind-set and lifestyle.  Kate believes maintaining all of these key components are vital to a person’s overall health and happiness.  Her expertise is based on certifications as a CHEK Exercise Coach, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach 2, Olympic Lifting Coach, Resistive-Stretching Practitioner and Certified Nutritional Consultant.

Kate, an athlete her entire life, has played competitive tennis, participated in dozens of running races, including the Las Vegas Marathon, hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim and Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the continental U.S.  She is currently training in her second Pedal the Cause 100 mile Cycling event to raise money for cancer research.  Her personal accomplishments along with her education and training molded her approach to training her clients from a fitness-dominated perspective.  

In 2010, Kate realized her years of focus on solely physically training her body began to break down.  She hit a physical and emotional wall.  Everything she believed, practiced and espoused was no longer working. This is when Kate was introduced to the work of Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Han Selye, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Josh Rubin, Danny Roddy and many others.

Within one year, after spending significant time reading, researching and personal experimentation, Kate healed her body and her metabolism.  Along the way, her entire belief system about what constituted “true health” shifted 180 degrees from what she had been practicing during her almost 20 years in this industry.  Good health was a no longer defined by how many hours she could work out, how much will-power she had, or how low her body fat could get. Good health is now defined by a lack of injuries and sickness, great sleep, good digestion, healthy skin and hair, lean muscle and a warm body, overall happiness and emotional well being.

Kate knows and understands that the nutritional, mental, physical and spiritual components of a person’s life must act synergistically…one is not more important than the other.

Do not be afraid of HUNGER!

I can not tell you how many women AND men, that I talk to, are trying to AVOID being hungry.

Yes, I get it, I used to do this too.

I though being hungry was a BAD thing. I thought being hungry was going to make me fat. So, I did everything I could to NOT be hungry. I would drink tons of water, chew gum, eat low calories, high volume foods to fill me up (low calorie veggies, air popcorn, tea, etc.), I would workout MORE, or I would try to NOT think about how hungry I was.

And guess what? It all worked, until it didn't!

Why? Because HUNGER is a cue your body NEEDS fuel. And if you do not give it usable, nutrient filled energy, you will continue to be hungry and/or long term angry, bitchy, sleepless, libido less, and/or poop less.

You want a HIGH metabolism then you have to FUEL it with enough energy for it to stay HIGH. Think of it like wood on a fire, the bigger your fire becomes, the more wood it needs to stay BIG. Your metabolism works the same way. The more your metabolism increases, the more fuel you will need to keep it up. AND hunger is the CUE it needs more fuel!

Trying to fuel your energy levels with calorie free food is like trying to create a bonfire with a post it note.

Can I hear an AMEN?!

Of course, when you are hungry, it is important to follow these 5 easy rules.

1. Eat a carb and protein in EVERY meal
2. Eat at frequency that keeps your blood sugar stable, this can range from 2-5 hours
3. Eat within 30 minutes of waking
4. Utilize nutrient rich carbs like fruits, juice, roots, milk and honey
5. Utilize easy to digest proteins like shellfish, white fish, eggs, cheese, milk, liver and broth/gelatin

Hunger is a cue your body NEEDS energy. Energy that will be used to make you warm, want to have sex, build muscle, have a daily poo, grow hair, do your job, workout and put you into a deep sleep.

Bottom line: Do not be afraid of hunger!
