I’m an Accredited Practising Dietitian and the founder of Menuconcepts. 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 practically achieve this lifestyle.

I’ve been a dietitian for 22 years now and my personal low carb journey started about 10 years ago. I was increasingly frustrated that I just couldn’t get results for many of my patients – including myself. Yes, I had also struggled with my weight, and found that the traditional low-fat, low calorie, portion controlling strategies just weren’t working. In fact, I found the more I followed the low-fat paradigm the more lethargic and bloated and fatter I became. I was at my wits end. I was sick and tired of stripping calories and every single gram of fat I could out of my own diet and my patients’ diets without any success. My patients and I felt really deflated, and I felt like a failure as a dietitian.

So, one day I just 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 be able to help my patients, including myself, see results in just a few weeks; dropping weight, reducing hunger and those uncontrolled cravings, increased energy, and best of all no more carb comas.

I saw reduced blood sugars in such a short period of time and happy motivated patients. I was transformed from the dietitian that sat down and pulled out people’s calories and told them to count how many grams of fat they were having and watch their portions, to someone who said eat as much protein and healthy fat as you like – just don’t eat carbs and sugar!

I live and I breathe low carb life every day. I’m just absolutely thrilled and excited to be a part of the Defeat Diabetes team and to help you enjoy a low carb, healthy fat lifestyle.
