About Shelly Marie Redmond, founder Skinny Louisiana


While girls her age were playing with dolls, Shelly was busy in the family garden, raising rabbits, and yes, peeling lots and lots of crawfish.  Having won her first cooking contest at the age of 12, Shelly Marie Redmond, MS, RD, LDN, lives for the kitchen. She believes she was given the gift of cooking by her 2 grandmothers – Edna and Louise. Edna (her father’s mother) was a true Cajun, tough yet loveable, who trolled shrimp, and had a house that smelled of gumbo, white beans and rice, and oyster dressing. Bath and Body Works could have easily made a candle called ‘Gumbo’ from Edna’s house. Louise (her mother’s mother whom Shelly bares a striking resemblance), while an amazing cook, was more of a baker, known for the best fudge and cake in Houma, Louisiana. Her candle would have simply been called ‘Divinity Fudge.’

It was natural Shelly ‘majored’ in food, and she did just that! Graduated from both Nicholls State University and Louisiana Tech University, Shelly is a registered dietitian, TV personality, and the author of ‘Eat Well and Be Fabulous: A Guide for the Modern Day Woman.‘ She is a partner in Eberhardt Physical Therapy in Shreveport, LA where she currently counsels patients on meal planning, weight loss, diabetes, family nutrition, and wellness. Shelly can currently be seen bi-monthly as the ‘Healthy Eating Expert’ on KTAL News 6, an NBC Affiliate Station. You may think she prepares boring, tasteless snacks and vegetable trays on her segment, think again. With topics such as Tailgating Finds, a ‘Frozen’ Party, and ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Treats,’ Shelly combines fun and tasty foods all with a ‘skinny’ twist.

She has completed countless interviews for ABC, CBS, and NBC affiliate stations on nutrition and lifestyle information. In addition to television interviews, Shelly has been seen in print, including SB Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine, FoxBusiness.com, Today’s Diet and Nutrition Magazine, Shreveport Times, The Forum News, and City Lights Magazine.

You will find her embracing her Cajun roots in her kitchen while preparing simple and tasteful Louisiana style dishes in her kitchen, for her ‘Yankee’ husband, daughter, son, and 2 cats, Gizmo and Theodore Roosevelt.
