Craig Rodger is a classically trained chef who spent eight years cooking in fine-dining restaurants, including Michelin-starred establishments in his native Scotland. Diagnosed with pre-diabetes at the age of 28 (an occupational hazard, Craig says, for chefs tasting the highly refined cuisine designed to pleasure discerning gourmands), he felt compelled to research and adopt a different approach to eating and cooking. Craig has a real passion for stripping away carb-laden fillers and for using nutritionally dense ingredients as the foundation of culinary excellence. He no longer has pre-diabetes.
Dr Caryn Zinn is a registered dietitian and senior academic. Her master’s degree was in the area of sports nutrition and her doctoral studies focused on how to achieve sustainable weight loss. Caryn currently combines academic work with her own clinical dietetic practice. She believes that this mix of academia and practice keeps her real and at the industry’s cutting edge. ‘When LCHF first came onto my radar, I initially dismissed it,’ Caryn explains. ‘But going back over the evidence has convinced me that the current recommendations are based on flawed science.’ Known as the ‘Whole-food Dietitian’, Caryn’s mission is to influence the dietetic profession to understand the potential improved health benefits of LCHF nutrition.
Professor Grant Schofield is leading the wave of change in how we think about our health, including how we exercise, how we sleep, how we (and our kids) play, and how we connect. The central place that real food plays in our health and wellbeing and a desire to help people ‘be the best they can be’ drives his research and practice. Dubbed the ‘Fat Professor’, he is at the forefront of challenging the widespread fat phobia that has pushed us to eat a diet full of processed, carb-laden food. ‘It’s time to help the world change,’ he says. Prof Grant is a respected public health academic with 20 years’ experience and all the boxes ticked in a high-achieving career.
