Kelly, 29, gives Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, an idea of her challenges with weight.

Throughout her journey, she has tried different things, like Health at Every Size, and the Paleo Diet. But each thing has components that work for her, and components that don't.
