Updated: Sep 27, 2022

Kate Deering - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Kate Deering brings 25 years of experience in the holistic health and wellness space, along with a robust and tested approach to healing someone - nutritionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

With a dense background in sports performance, biochemistry, and physiology, Kate has recently shifted her thoughts on what “true-health” meant, focusing on a more root-cause, holistic approach towards optimal health, while also writing the book “How to Heal Your Metabolism”

She often is associated with the likes of Ray Peat and Jay Feldman, embracing fruit, sugar and carbs as a natural and fundamental source of energy, focusing on the underlying issues that leads to intolerances in handling carbohydrates.
