Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

I read The real Meal revolution by Sally Ann Creed and Dr Tim Noakes.

I was fascinated by how Tim Noakes is changing his perspective on nutrition and health. I want to share my knowledge with people that want to get healthy for life.


How have you personally benefited from Banting?

I have followed a LCHF life style and lost 18 pounds and kept it off for the past year.


Other interests and background info:

Two years ago my brother introduced me to the first RMR book and reintroduced me to Dr Tim Noakes who was an icon for me as a kid growing up.  I read feverishly to understand his change of “heart” regarding carbo loading.

I have spent the past twenty something years as a Chef.  My first 8 years, aboard yachts around the world.  I studied in South Africa,  UK and Thailand.  I have taught cooking and gardening classes in Elementary schools  – all this to educate children on how to cook and eat healthy food. Despite our climate having snow and below average temperatures for more than 6 months of the year , I try and eat as much locally sourced fruit, vegetables and protein as possible.  I remain active by competing regionally in Squash and Tennis leagues and run between 5-10K per week depending on snow fall.    I volunteer to educate children how to cook and how to eat healthy. During the summer months I work my own business as a Personal Chef and caterer.

With my dad being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in his mid-fifties and my start to the “Midlife Crisis”, I was ready to check on my Blood insulin levels and make a change to get off carbs and sugar.  My blood sugar levels have been excellent for the past couple of years (I have a physical with blood work every January).

My mission is to teach and coach clients “How to Cook Banting”.  It’s very easy to give a person a piece of paper or a book to follow a particular food style change, but for most people where I live, “cooking” does not come easy.  Convenience and pre-made food is a way of life, diabetes, obesity and the rate of cancer here in the USA is out of control.
