Jackie Keller, Bestselling Author, Wellness Coach, Owner of Premiere Healthy Food Company Nutrifit, LLC
Talks to OPM about her books, her philosophy, her company that has helped thousands of people and well known celebrities take charge of their nutritional needs and how she runs a successful company and stays green and philanthropic while doing it.
What an awesome treat… Jackie Keller of NutriFit® has helped and educated so many get in shape, stay in shape and enjoy eating healthy, and now I get a chance to bend her ear and ask some amazing questions.
I love to research and play around with nutrition and I always love to discuss this topic.
I think Jackie is amazing as she has run a successful food delivery company for over 25 years, she has written a bestselling book, she is a Le Cordon Bleu-trained culinary expert she educates, her company gives back to over 25 different causes and she coaches people like you and me and many Hollywood celebrities on how to get or stay healthy eating great tasting, food that is good for you.
I was able to find out about how her business is prosperous while staying green and I also got to ask questions about the truth about whole grains, sugars and other foods that we may have some misconceptions about.
I actually thought I knew more than I did. Jackie really knows the science and psychology that make us eat poorly and how to turn that around.
This was a great discussion and I thank Jackie for her time and grace in answering so many diverse questions from me.
Note: Since this interview was done, I found out I have cancer and so the advice in this interview are more important than ever. I truly believe that with a healthy diet, exercise and a good attitude, that we can conquer anything – JW
