There is an easier way! It is possible to feel energetic, happy and completely satisfied everyday
What would it mean to you if you were lighter, healthier, stronger and fitter?
What Dayna had to say:
"Since participating in the challenge I have increased energy - I'd been feeling very flat and overwhelmed with life before the challenge and now I feel much more able to take on my busy schedule. I am sleeping better - this together with the energy increase has definitely improved my mood and decreased my grumpiness towards my husband and kids. I have lost weight and have decreased bloating - I put on my pre-baby skinny jeans today and not only did they fit but they were comfy!"
You have come to the right place!
I know this because I've seen hundreds of people over the years who have been exactly where you are right now. You are not doomed to a lifetime of poor health. There is another way
The 6-Week Low Carb Challenge is an opportunity to flick the switch, for you to take back control and a perfect time for you to focus on YOU.
"I help people effortlessly alter their nutrition while still enjoying food they love"
And I promise I'm not talking about celery sticks and wholemeal crackers. What I'm talking about is real food that is tasty and delicious and often even referred to as indulgent. This food will not make you feel like you are on a 'diet' but it will take your health to a whole new level.

This approach to eating is very high fat, I am worried about saturated fat clogging my arteries and giving me high cholesterol The saturated fat-cholesterol hypothesis was first described by Dr Ancel Keys in the 1970s. This hypothesis has NEVER been proven to be correct despite hundreds of studies attempting to do just that. The belief however has been wrongly perpetuated through generations. What research has shown us is that saturated fat improves our cholesterol profile, is not associated with heart disease and possibly even reduces the risk of stroke. Saturated fat is often in food that is extremely nutritious and tasty and should be a regular part of our diet
I am a mum/dad and would prefer not to be making different dinners for various family members. Are recipes provided in this challenge suitable for my partner and kids? The essence of what we recommend in the low carb challenge is the principle of 'Just Eat Real Food' or 'JERF'. When selecting real food i.e. food that is available to us in nature, our diet ultimately becomes lower in carbohydrate and higher in fat and protein. It is therefore 100% safe and highly recommended that your partner and kids eat this way too. Whilst family members may choose not to stick to all of our guidelines as strictly as you, meals suggested and recipes provided are certainly suitable for the whole family to enjoy together.
I understand the massive health and weight benefits of low carb but I love bread, rice and pasta. What do you recommend? Did you know that the more carbohydrate we eat, the more we WANT to eat? Carbohydrate stimulates our appetite and perpetuates a need for more. I have had many people over the years in the same predicament, only to discover that their reliance on starchy carbs disappears or significantly diminishes over time. Whilst the initial week or two will be challenging, as you break this reliance, I can assure you that you will be pleasantly surprised at how little you miss these foods.
I've heard having high levels of ketones in your blood is dangerous, isn't this what happens with a low carb diet? Ketones are a natural by-product of fat breakdown and a source of fuel that our bodies thrive on. Nutritional ketosis is often confused with ketoacidosis. These two states are on completely different ends of a spectrum and exist in very different physiological states. Ketoacidosis can be life threatening and most commonly occurs in individuals with Type 1 Diabetes.Nutritional ketosis exists at much lower levels of ketones and the benefits have now been well documented and include things like weight loss, neurological benefits, enhanced athletic performance, as an adjunct to cancer treatment and control of epileptic seizures.
I am worried about nutritional deficiencies as I have heard that a low carb diet does not provide all required nutrients A well-formulated ketogenic diet including a range of vegetables, proteins and fats froma variety of sources and the inclusion of some nuts and seeds has been shown time and time again to meet all nutritional requirements. The guidelines, recipes and quick reference guides provided in this challenge ensure that your low carb diet is well formulated and complete thereby meeting all nutrient requirements. A recent article assessing the nutrient intake of LCHF diet was published in the British Medical Journal (Jan 2018) and concluded 'Despite macronutrient proportions not aligning with the current national guidelines, a well-planned LCHF meal plan can b considered micronutrient replete'
I understand that the short-term results are fantastic but I'm worrid about being able to sustain this way of eating in the long term Contrary to the belief that a low carb diet is not a sustainable lifestyle choice, studies have shown that once people give up sugars and grains they are very likely to do this for good! With LCHF eating resulting in better control of hunger and appetite, returning to low fat, appetite-stimulating, processed food becomes extremely undesirable
I thought the human brain requires glucose to function?If we aren't eating enough carbs isn't our mental capacity going to suffer? Our brains can function effectively on both glucose (carbs) and ketones (a by-product of fat breakdown). In fact, there is argument that the human brain may even function better on ketones. This is evident in many people reporting clarity and heightened levels of concentration on a low carb diet. If glucose is required, our bodies can actually produce it from protein through a process called gluconeogenesis.
