When venturing into the realm of carnivore, low-carb or ketogenic eating, it’s often recommended to enlist the support of healthcare professionals who are well-versed in this dietary path. While any qualified medical expert can provide guidance, specialists in the low-carb/keto approach bring valuable experience in tapering off medications commonly used in type 2 diabetes, such as insulin. Moreover, they can offer insights into interpreting lab test results within the context of a ketogenic diet, where the definitions of “normal” or “optimal” may differ slightly from those for individuals following higher carbohydrate diets. Remember that Coach Stephen can offer to go through the bloods with you.

To locate keto-friendly medical and dietetics/nutrition professionals, consider exploring the following resources. Remember, even if there are no specialists listed in your immediate vicinity, many professionals now offer virtual or remote appointments. Additionally, if there’s a practitioner within a reasonable traveling distance, the additional effort to collaborate with someone trained in this nutritional approach can be incredibly worthwhile.

Research indicates that about 8% of adults may suffer with food addiction. This equates to 4.3 million UK adults. Food addiction has serious mental and physical health consequences.

As food addicts in recovery and professionals working in this field we consider this to be one of the most urgent public health issues of our time. We have collaborated with the PHC to develop these pages and to organise events to raise awareness and provide advice to people with food addiction and those who care for them.
