Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

Most approaches to weight loss do not seem either rational, or sustainable for most people. This does. It is based on sound thinking and evidence. It works. It is simple. It is enjoyable.

I want to help you discover how to apply it to improve your health.


How have you personally benefited from Banting?

I’ve lost a lot of excess weight and gained back my life. So has my wife.

We are foodies, and we now eat better than ever. We love dogs, and can now enjoy exercising them. We fit into standard aircraft seats. Life is good.


Other interests and background info:

I’m a research physiologist by training, so I love delving ever deeper into the whys and hows of Banting. I am thrilled to be part of a scientific paradigm shift in our understanding of nutrition.

My career to date has mostly been in agricultural research, so I delight at the re-emergence of traditional foods that have been shunned for all of my life.

I love food and wine, so I relish this way of eating.

I love dogs, and especially being able to enjoy exercising with them.

I love people, and look forward to being able to help you meet your health goals.
