Hi! My name is Marty.

I’m an engineer with a passion for nutrition who seeks things numerically.

My wife is a type 1 diabetic and I have a family history of type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Recently, by refining our diet to prioritize low insulinogenic nutrient dense foods I’m pleased to say that my wife Monica has been able to achieve improved blood sugar control, increased energy and reduced depression and anxiety that so often comes with blood sugar dysregulation.

She’s now able to enjoy working as a teacher rather than just getting through the morning and needing to sleep the afternoon before picking up the kids.  Her only regret is that she didn’t discover this earlier.

After years of dabbling in diet and nutrition, I’ve been able to step up to a new level of vitality, reach my ideal weight and reverse my pre-diabetes.

We have also seen dramatic improvements in the health and happiness of our kids by changing what they eat.

For me this is personal.  I’m passionate.  I hope that our journey can help to shortcut your path to optimum health.

There are always new things to learn in the world of health and nutrition.  The range of conflicting ideas makes it difficult to find a cohesive dietary narrative to achieve health and wellness.

My aim is to consolidate the best of all these ideas into an algorithm that will enable an individual to tailor their diet to suit their goals.

This approach builds on LCHF, paleo, and ketogenic frameworks to minimise the negative effects of excess insulin while maximising nutrition through eating real, luxurious and delicious food.
