About Better Health Weight Loss

I have been a natural health practitioner and weight loss coach for over 25 years.  I am passionate about what I do and love to help people achieve their health and weight loss goals.  At this time, and for a long time, I have been an advocate for the low carb diets all the way back to the Atkins days.  I have followed the medical reports regarding the safety and effectiveness of this diet.  It has shown over the years to help with diabetes and heart disease and much more.  For years, we have been brain washed to reduce fat and eat more carbs (sugar) and obesity, especially in children, has sky rocketed over the years.  Clearly, something isn’t working.  Good fats….again…GOOD fats are imperative for good health.  Yes, reducing the bad, trans fats is a healthy thing to do but you need to eat good fats every single day.  These would include avocados, fish and fish oils, olive oil, coconut oil, MCT oil etc.  It can be quite challenging to get these fats in your diet every day so supplementing with omega 3 capsules or liquid is important.

If you haven’t read my blog posts yet, low carb, moderate protein diets work.  How?  Our number one fuel that our body uses is sugar, or glucose.  EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING is a sugar with the exception of meat and fat.  So, vegetables, fruits and starches ALL BREAK DOWN INTO SUGAR!  If you starve the body of sugar, it has no choice but to burn fat for energy.  It’s as simple as that.  I hope you find my blog helpful.  Please feel free to message me if you have any questions at all.  I hope you enjoy it.
