"Thank you very much for this program. I have seen many lives improve through LCHF and I am excited to be a nutrition advisor and health coach so that I can help even more people find good health and live longer, fuller lives."

"My key takeaway from the course was a new sense of confidence to fulfil the role of a community coach. The course contributed to growing my confidence in these interventions, however, the lectures that went through the structure of the sessions within the 6-week program, and the qualities of a facilitator, worldview, and cultural differences, contributed significantly more equipped for the task of a facilitator."

- Coach and Nutrition Network Advisor,
United States

"The layout of this course was simple, effective and most enjoyable! Thank you to everyone involved in the making of this course. As an already well-versed Low Carber, this course boosted the knowledge I already knew, and enhanced it with a newfound confidence and motivation to help people reach the optimal health they deserve!"
