Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

Approaching midlife, I realized that my metabolism slowed down and the weight piled on. Unfortunately one gets into a rut and ignores the signs of having to buy larger clothes etc. in the hope that it is only a passing phase until it’s too late. My current position at work calls for client entertainment including long lunches, travel into Africa and socializing at numerous functions. Due to the unhealthy lifestyle and socializing, I have watched my peers put on weight, develop medical problems and in many cases end up on chronic medication for one or other condition which they can control by simply changing their eating and drinking habits.

I have always had an interest in the composition of the foods that we eat, often looking at the labels to see what is really in the product. Due to misleading adverts and dieting literature, Ill-informed consumers have been hoodwinked into believing that a low fat lifestyle is the right approach to weight loss. The general public is also not aware of the amount of sugar they consume on a daily basis, again due to the lack of knowledge and proper labelling. I enjoy cooking at home and found it easy to adjust to the Banting way of preparing food. My passion for people equips me to offer the correct programme as an affiliate coach  – with the Banting Buddies organization behind me to offer the credibility to the coaching.

How have you personally benefited from Banting?

I started my journey in August 2014 weighing 125kg and started showing weight loss within the first few weeks, the loss was amazing and I started feeling better health wise. To date I have lost 30kg. In October 2014 my wife decided to join me on the journey having been insulin resistant and on Glucophage. She no longer requires medication – her insulin levels have stabilised with a 20kg weight loss as a side effect.

Other interests and background info:

I enjoy running and gym to keep fit. My wife and family are the center of my world and have embraced the Banting lifestyle making the transformation so much easier to sustain.
