EPISODE 18: We have a freaking shweet guest today.  Leigh Peele is a trainer, author and coach for those that want to improve their quality of life, body or mindset; you may know her as the author of the Fat Loss TroubleshootStarve Mode, or the cookbook titled Body By Eats. Though she specializes in fat loss, she understands the different psychological aspects to physical transformations, and has learned how to coach her clients through the different layers. Leigh is very passionate about blending together the science of fat loss with the emotional aspect of body acceptance.

Leigh is also the co-host of the Fitcast Podcast and can be found at LeighPeele.com. So without further ado, welcome to the show Leigh.
