Not WHAT But HOW To Eat

 You might expect to find a list of recipes in this "How To" section but the MetabolicHealth Program is not a cookbook.

The goal of the MetabolicHealth Program is to teach you HOW to eat. That is, how to make or recognize a well formulated, low carhoydrate, high fat, ketogenic meal. Once you understand the components of a well-formulated meal (ie. you have learned to fish), there are many resources including websites and cookbooks that will help you decide WHAT to eat (so you can feed yourself for the rest of your lifetime).



 There is much to unlearn and learn to successfully recover from 'metabolic sickness' through a low carb lifestyle pattern. 

Please complete the following steps prior to your consultation appointment with your healthcare provider. 

Your Success Depends On Completing Your Homework


1. Complete the baseline labwork

If you wait until after you have started to make dietary change, we will miss the opportunity to measure your baseline laboratory profile.

2. Watch the MetabolicHealth Program Patient Video Series

This is 2.5 hours of recording broken over 10 videos and builds on the concepts presented in the handbook.

3. Complete the Informed Consent

The American Diabetes Assocation recommends a low carbohydrate, high fat dietary pattern for patients with diabetes while Diabetes Canada does not

  • It is important you understand that a low carbohydrate dietary pattern is not considered the standard of care, as of yet, in Canada for patients with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.

4. Read the MetabolicHealth Program Handbook

This handbook holds nothing back. It is all the secetes to success. Read it twice, cover to cover.

5. Read The New Aktins for a New You by E. Westman

The New Atkins for a New You is an excellent reference written by extremely well-published authors.

6. Complete the First Appointment Questionnaire

The First Appointment Questionnaire is included in the MetabolicHealth Program Toolkit or you may be provided a weblink in an email for on-line completion from your healthcare provider.
