Get into ketosis and kick-start your weight loss.
I can’t ever remember being slim as a child and I continued to gain weight through my teenage years and throughout Medical School.
I’d tried pretty much every diet going and whilst losing weight in the short term was usually pretty easy, at around 6 weeks into every ‘diet’ I ended up feeling COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED and CRAZY HUNGRY!
Diet over. Go back to the start
(in fact, actually gain more weight).
My years spent as a junior doctor really didn’t help. They were stressful and crazy busy, grabbing food from the hospital canteen whenever I could.
Even when I managed to establish a regular exercise habit the weight still wouldn’t budge.
Despite now being a fully qualified GP (Family Practice doctor) who really should know how to fix this problem, I felt completely powerless to do anything about my weight. I started to believe that there was no way back for me and that I was destined to continue to gain weight year in, year out.

In early 2016 everything changed for me, and I mean EVERYTHING.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was on a skiing trip in the French Alps with my wife and some friends. It was a shared chalet and we were having breakfast with some people that we didn't know. One of the guys from another group was spooning butter into his coffee. This seemed like a really strange thing to do. But being curious about why he is doing this, and I asked him.
We got talking, and the information he shared with me that week changed my life for the better, forever. As soon as I got back from that trip I began putting his teachings into practice.
On 14th February 2016 I weighed more than I’ve ever done in my life. 6 weeks after that day I had lost 20lbs (9kg), but this time I didn’t feel exhausted, I had loads of energy. I KNEW something was different.
Other than a short break to Paris in May 2016 where I attempted to eat my own body weight in croissants and baguettes (yes it is still possible to enjoy yourself and still achieve your weight loss goals) I continued to lose weight throughout the spring and summer of 2016 until I had normalised my weight!
This graph shows my actual weight loss... from over 108kg in February 2016 to under 85kg in August of the same year. I've maintained it ever since!
"I’ve lost 21lbs! I’m feeling much better generally mainly fitness wise having done a few 5K jogs. I won’t say run as I’m slow! But I’m faster than those still sat on the couch!
My bloating and other minor abdominal discomfort is main benefit as I hardly ever get those symptoms now.
My long term aim is around 20kgs [44lbs] in total."
I'm running a series of online, small-group coaching sessions. I'd love you to be a part of it!
