Our doctor-led low carb keto health program can help you improve your health and wellbeing without medication.

A low carb or ketogenic diet is one where you reduce your carbohydrate intake and replace them with healthy fats and proteins. This idea might sound unusual because it appears to be the opposite of what we have traditionally been told a healthy diet is. However, research is increasingly showing that a diet low in carbohydrates can help manage and even reverse a range of chronic health conditions, including type 2 diabetes.


High-carbohydrate diets common in our society contribute to many epidemic conditions, including type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and a range of inflammatory and neurological disorders. However, many of these conditions can be managed or even reversed with the help of diet and lifestyle changes.

When you adopt a low carb approach to your nutrition, you eat fewer grains, processed foods, and sugars and replace them with quality protein such as meat, chicken, fish, seafood and eggs, and healthy fats like avocado, olive and coconut oil, butter, nuts and seeds. This significantly reduces carbohydrates in your diet while meeting your satiety needs with good fats.

Evidence suggests that diets lower in carbohydrates are more effective for weight loss and improving type 2 diabetes and other chronic health conditions. A typical Western diet can contain up to 250g of carbohydrates per day, mainly from processed foods and refined sugars.

Why it works.

When you avoid sugar and starches and replace them with healthy fats and proteins, your blood sugar stabilises, and insulin production reduces. This allows your body to burn fat for energy rather than carbohydrates, a state called nutritional ketosis. In addition, when your diet includes more fats and proteins, you feel less hungry, so you eat less, leading to weight loss. Studies have shown that a low carb diet makes it easier to lose weight and control your blood sugar, among other benefits.
