Master Nutr. APD, Founder of Low Carb Keto Health and Menuconcepts
I’m an Accredited Practising Dietitian and the founder of Menuconcepts and Low Carb Keto Health. I run a successful low carb private practice nationally, mentoring dietitians in all things low carb. I regularly present to GP groups and the general public about the benefits of low carb and how to achieve this lifestyle.
I've been a dietitian for 22 years, but my low carb journey started about 10 years ago. I was increasingly frustrated that I couldn't get results for many of my patients - including myself. Yes, I had also struggled with my weight. However, I found that traditional low fat, low calorie, portion-controlling strategies weren’t working. In fact, I found that the more I followed the low fat advice, the more lethargic, bloated and fatter I became. I was at my wit's end. I was sick and tired of stripping calories and every single gram of fat from my and my patient's diet without success. My patients and I felt really deflated, and I felt like a failure as a dietitian.
So, one day I decided to look outside the square and research different modern nutritional strategies. This is where I eventually discovered low carb, and it was then that things significantly changed in my dietetic career and personal life. I was finally able to get results for my patients and in a short period of time! It was so rewarding to help myself and my patients see results in just a few weeks. We were able to drop weight, reduce hunger and uncontrolled cravings and increase our energy. Best of all, no more carb comas!
I saw reduced blood sugars in such a short period and happy motivated patients. I was transformed. From a dietitian that slashed calories and told patients to limit fat and reduce portion sizes, to one who said "eat as much protein and healthy fat as you like - just don’t eat carbs and sugar."!
I live and breathe low carb life every day. I'm absolutely thrilled and excited to be part of the Defeat Diabetes team and help you enjoy a low carb, healthy fat lifestyle.
