Biographical Info It was 2015 when I first realised that I wasn't in the best of health and it was a bit of a shock, I was long term asthmatic I always knew that, but I had become very overweight, and was suffering from progressive arthritic joint pain particularly in my right hand (which is not good for a bricklayer). I had been following modern conventional wisdom and the medical orthodoxy that tells us to eat a healthy diet in sync with government guidelines, yet it hadn't served me well. In 2015 I tried various strategies to relieve the symptoms that were causing me distress, and for two years I had a modicum of success, but three years ago as I started to delve deeper into diet and nutrition as a means to correct my poor physical condition I stumbled across the LCHF and ketogenic diets, I have never looked back. To date I have lost 77 pounds (5½ stone) in weight, my asthma has improved to the point where I rarely take medication, my arthritis has effectively gone and I have started to do physical training again. Discovering the low carb, ketogenic lifestyle and qualifying as a LCHF diet and nutrition advisor has been a turning point in my life, I know that this is my vocation now, I'm on a mission to help as many people as I can to achieve the same results as me. My story is by no means unique, there are many examples of the efficacy of this way of eating, it is truly the most amazing, exciting and hopeful thing that can happen to people who are struggling with similar problems to the ones I had.
