Created by the expert hosts of the popular Well-Fed Women Podcast, a step-by-step food and fitness plan for women, that teaches them how to improve their health by changing the quality—not the quantity—of the food they eat.

To eat your way to better health, you don’t need to limit your calorie intake, or cut out carbs or fat. You don’t need to count “points.” Better health doesn’t come from limits. It comes from focusing on the quality of food that you eat—not the quantity. Instead of limiting your food intake you should be enriching it, argue Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper. The popular hosts of the Well-Fed Women Podcast want you to focus on the good things you eat. They want to make sure you get 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 about eating for health firsthand. They, too, struggled with confusing and frustrating medical conditions, including infertility, digestive issues, acne, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, and anemia. They discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food: they ditched the diet books, calorie counters, and scales, and started eating their way to health.

In Coconuts and Kettlebells, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day thanks to a delicious selection of dishes that are all gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. Within those 2,000 calories, setting a minimum intakes of protein, fat, and carbohydrates instead of the usual maximums will ensure that your diet is full of nutrients, while also providing flexibility to enjoy what you’re eating. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar—that cause the most health problems among women. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step program to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on—and which you don’t—to feel better.

To help you discover how your body responds to the Big Four, you’ll choose from two simple 4-week meal plans: one for the Butter Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of fats) and one for the Bread Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of carbs). Each meal plan comes with a weekly shopping list, a guide to kitchen tools and equipment, and instructions on how to batch cook, meal prep, and stock the pantry. In addition, you’ll have access to over 75 gluten-free and paleo-friendly flavor-packed recipes (free of the Big Four foods) for every meal of the day, including:

Coconut Chai LatteKale and Bacon Breakfast SkilletApple Pie SmoothieThai Coconut Curry ShrimpMoroccan Lamb MeatballsShrimp and Cabbage Stir FryParsnip and Carrot FriesMango Jalapeno SalsaChocolate Cherry Energy BitesLemon Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes

To go along with the meal plans, Noelle and Stefani also provide three 4-week fitness plans tailored to three experience levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. All of the workouts can be done anywhere—at your home or on the road—and take no more than thirty minutes. A comprehensive whole body program to get and keep you healthy inside and out, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides the knowledge and tools you need to heal in a way that is effortless, rewarding, confidence-boosting, and everlasting.

An awesome book for a healthy reset! This book came up as a recommendation when I bought another Paleo(ish) cookbook and I bought it based on the great reviews it had. I wasn’t familiar with either author but have since started following their podcast (Well Fed Women) and am loving it!I have read through the entire book and tried a few recipes. I haven’t gone through the whole 4×4 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…

More than just a cookbook I have been a longtime follower of the Paleo For Women podcast and was thrilled when this cookbook was released! It’s more than just a cookbook. It’s an education on why women need to be eating more, something that is so often overlooked, especially in the Paleo community. Anyone who is experienced with Paleo can skip over the intro, but make sure you read about the minimums on protein, fat and carbs. I love their approach. As someone who has tried (and failed) multiple times at tracking…

This book WILL help you get on track, stay on track, and help you feel empowered while doing it. This book is amazing! I have made several of the recipes and love every single one (Apple-Chicken Skillet pictured 🤤) and so does my husband! They are easy to make, use ingredients that are affordable, and available at your local grocer/farmers market. With a stocked kitchen there isn’t much you won’t already have, which means not spending extra money just to cook healthy. I am really loving feeling satisfied after every meal and especially enjoying eating more and healthy foods while doing it…
