We built this course because the low-fat dietary guidelines were based on flawed science when they were introduced 40 years ago. We now know better. Low carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) nutrition and/or ketogenic diets can and do address many of the root cause of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This course shares real-world clinical examples.

"My GP practice has been offering a low-carb option since 2013. An unexpected bonus is that we now spend 40,000 pounds less per year on drugs for diabetes alone and with careful medical supervision we have now managed to help 59 patients achieve drug-free diabetes remission".
