Here at Ditch The Carbs, my mission is simple. To make low-carb and keto simple and tasty for the whole family.
I help people regain their health and lose weight by using low-carb nutrition - using my stepwise method in the 4-week QUICKSTART programme.
I have helped more people regain their health in the last few years by using low-carb nutrition, than in my 25-year career, dispensing medication.
I have witnessed for decades the effects of chronic high blood sugars in my patients. I understand how wide-reaching metabolic syndrome is to almost every chronic disease. I want YOU to live your BEST life!
