Let's talk about our collective metabolic health

Hi, I'm  Dr. John Beaney

I'm a retired GP who is focused on educating people about the impacts of the modern diet on our metabolic health. 

I spent most of my life as a GP gradually getting heavier with no prospect of doing anything about it.

In September 2013, I weighed in at 108kg and decided enough was enough.  By June 2014, I was 85 kilos and my weight has stayed stable since.  Beryl, my wife, has had exactly the same experience.

This set me off on a journey of discovery into a world of nutrition where doctors rarely tread. Hidden among a lot of misinformation,
I found that it is possible to enjoy a healthy, nutritious and satisfying diet - and be slim without hunger.
