"I thoroughly enjoyed the online course so much that I was glued to the screen for hours at a time and completed the course in a couple of days, putting some of my other duties on hold. I would encourage all Medical Doctors and Allied Health Professionals to do the online course if they are genuinely serious about wanting to improve the health of their patients or clients."

"I'm blown away by the content in this course! It is incredibly valuable for even those who are not coaching clients because optimising health is applicable to every single one of us - & this is what the course teaches. It goes beyond just coaching how to follow a low carb diet!"

"I have finished the Advisors course. In my keto journey over the last year, I have done approximately 1000 hours of research and studying on the ketogenic way of eating. For that reason, I was quite sure that this course would offer me a certificate more than knowledge.... Boy was I wrong! This has been an amazing journey so far and I have learned so much and will be forever grateful for the Nutrition Network and this course!"
