Is this healthy high fat diet really the best way to lose weight?

The longer I work with in this health and fitness industry, the more 'that doesn't make sense' things I see. 

I mean, you've got the media telling you that you have to detox your body, NEVER eat too close to bedtime, low fat, cut out carbs..and - more recently - 

eat as much saturated fat as you like to lose weight, tone up and fit back into your favourite clothes without feeling hungry ever again...

They call it the ketogenic diet. Have you heard of it? It's where you eat the majority of your foods from FAT. It became pretty popular when Trudy Deakin came out and said she was eating 82% FAT....because it was just sugar fuelling obesity. 

It's got kind of trendy now, too.

Kim Kardashian and - apparently - Megan Fox, too.

Halle Barry was even quoted as saying 'say yes to keto' as if it's some cult...

So, how does it work?

Well, you pretty much eat high fat foods like meats, eggs, nuts, butter, coconut oil, fish, cheese...

But pretty much avoid all carbs (including fruit) and even some veggies. 

Now, the idea is that your body starts burning fat as fuel.

And they're right. Eat more fat, and your body will burn more fuel. But this doesn't mean you will lose BODY FAT ...unless of course you eat less..

Which you probably WILL end up doing on this diet.


Well, if you cut out bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, fruit, and pretty much all've cut a third of your plate, right?

So you'll probably end up losing some weight. 

Which is a good thing, of course.

But should you do it?

Well, the latest research showed that whether you go high carb or 'ketogenic' will make NO difference to your weight loss if calories are the same.


this doesn't mean that parts of being lowER carb are not useful. In fact, some of the ladies I work with DO experience less hunger and more energy when they eat slightly lowER carb meals.

My opinion on this?

The best diet in the world is the one you can do. 

So what happens when you want to eat out? Have some rice with your curry? Have your roasties on a Sunday? What happens when you get bored of eating the same foods? Can you see yourself sticking to this? Keeping the weight off long-term so you can ditch the baggy clothes for good?

Or will you fall into the trap of believing your thoughts telling you that you've failed because you've eaten 'carbs late at night'?

It's why I make things super simple for you using a my step by step Shift Nutrition system.

Doesn't 'discriminate' against so-called 'bad foods' and helps you tone up and fit back into your favourite clothes whilst still eating the foods you love.

Because whatever diet you choose to help you lose weight and tone up?

There's a common theme...

Protein and muscle toning exercise (which when you consider bone density, healthy ageing, being able to get up and down for as long as possible, and keeping the weight off for's pretty serious).

I mean, myself and most of the ladies in using my Shift Personal Training and Nutrition System might eat highER carb one day and highER fat the next...

It's finding what works for YOU

As a result?

Just like any healthy eating plan, it does require you to do it. Although it's pretty simple and most of it is done for you and allows you to eat the foods you enjoy? You still have to actually do it. 

So it's not for everyone. 

But if you're happy to invest about 10 minutes a week to kickstart your fat loss using my Nutrition system eating super simple meals that the family will love (you won't even need to do a shopping list as it will be done for you)

And attend at least ONE Personal Training Session per week (you'll have access to THREE plus my Home Fit programme)?

Then you might want to apply for your free 7-day trial starting next week (applications close tomorrow)
