I've been helping people to live healthier, happier lives, and to perform better since starting in clinical practice (way back...) in the late 1990s. Over this time in practice I have been privileged to work with many Olympic, professional, Commonwealth and other high performing athletes.
I've also worked with many people to overcome the effects of chronic and debilitating health conditions. Along the way I've founded or co-founded many successful businesses in the health, fitness and wellness space.
I was one of the very first practitioners to begin prescribing and working with low-carb, high-fat (LCHF), ketogenic, and lower-carb, higher-protein diets in the late 1990s.
My current research centres on MCTs, keto-induction, keto-flu, and finding appropriate carbohydrate intake for individuals based on their metabolic state, activity and ethno-genetic factors.
