Biographical Info Christine Franic, RN BSN MBA MSc DD, is a registered nurse with over 30 years in healthcare in British Columbia Canada. Her mother had a stroke at the age of 53 that left her paralyzed for 31 years until she passed away at the age of 84. Her father had his leg amputated at 60 and died of a heart attack at 73. Her parents were both type 2 diabetics on medication, insulin, 3 meals and 3 snacks a day as per protocol. This family history petrified Christine, so she studied and worked hard to ensure this didn’t happen to her. However, after years of struggle with yo-yo dieting, fatty liver, high triglycerides, gestational diabetes with her three pregnancies following the standard diabetic protocols that didn’t work she gave up. In January 2017 she was doing rounds in the ER as an Infection Prevention & Control Practitioner when she received the call from her family physician informing her that her glucose was 24mmol/L or 430mg/dL and her triglycerides were 18mmol/L or 1594mg/dL and she needed treatment stat. Fortunately, she was stabilized before any critical incident occurred. While on medical leave she decided enough was enough and her son asked her to look into the ketogenic diet. She found peer reviewed studies, trials, cases and much more in the literature on Low Carbohydrate and Ketogenic lifestyles. With nothing to lose she lost over 80 pounds and has kept it off to date. Her A1C has been at 5% for the past year and a half. She still has more weight to lose, and she knows that the body needs time to heal. When she experiences a weight loss stall she now understands the process of autophagy and how it is healing her body back to homeostasis. This is the first time that she has not gained the weight back it just stayed stalled and eventually it starts losing again. She specializes in helping people with obesity, and pre-diabetes with online group sessions and education programs, one-on-one, and retreats.
