Who am I?
My name is Joanne McCormack and I am a retired family doctor in Warrington, Cheshire, UK. I am a registered doctor and non prescribing.
As medical students we never learned much about nutrition, and were taught that a balanced diet was all anyone could do to be in good health. In 2013 I listened to Professor Robert Lustig, an endocrinologist, who changed my personal and professional view on this. Of course, my studies went way beyond this one event and have continued to this day. Following this I gradually learned about a new, different way of eating which involved eating real, nutrient dense, unprocessed food. It can be varied according to your food preferences, current health, medical conditions and medications,so read on and see what you think.
All I have done with my food is given up the starches and sugars that are found in processed foods, and cut down those in natural foods. Now I live a healthy, happy life and I want to share this way of living with others. You can do this too, if you like what you see and choose to do so. Just read the site through and think about it before you start. Many Warrington GPs and nurses are aware of what I do (and many refer people to me), so do tell them about it when you see them. I do find many people come back months later feeling better, and on a reduced list of medication, or maybe none. Just so that you know I am not alone, I am one of a group of 12 founder doctors of the charity, the Public Health Collaboration. The Public Health Collaboration and an international study group numbering 400 people.
