My journey to low carb/LCHF
I have gained and lost weight my entire life. In 2013 I discovered LCHF. I questioned everything I have ever thought about nutrition. It led me to an incredibly healthy way to eat. There are no processed foods, only wholesome, clean foods that help me to lose weight and prevent the big 4 – heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers and cancer. I no longer count points or calories. I no longer am a yo-yo dieter. I have been at goal weight for over 3 years and am finally in control of my appetite.
How Ditch The Carbs began
I am a mum of 3 young children and a registered pharmacist. I wanted to retrain as a dietician or nutritionist so I could teach others what I have learnt. Sadly there are no low carb degree courses (other than the ones you ‘buy’ on line – avoid those). I would have to train learning the traditional low fat guidelines just to gain qualifications whilst doing my own LCHF research , it would have cost me $10,000’s, impacted incredibly on the family and I would have probably ended up working part time helping only a few people. So therefore, Ditch The Carbs was born. It has grown incredibly fast. It is the no.1 recipe website in New Zealand and Australia. I now also write for Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and Diet Doctor.
