Professor Tim Noakes

Professor Noakes started researching the effects of carbohydrates, proteins and fats on humans. After his research convinced him that a high fat low carb diet is the healthiest option for many, Professor Noakes founded the Noakes Foundation in 2012.

After being left frustrated by the decline of his own personal health, Professor Noakes has made it his mission to reverse this global trend. The Noakes Foundation is the catalyst for this change. It seeks to reveal what genuine, healthy nutrition looks like, and in doing so makes a difference in the lives of millions of people.

Join me as I ask Tim:

  • How did he come to realise that his beliefs about nutrition were all wrong, and what did he do about it?
  • What’s his advice for people who need to make a change to their diet?
  • What percentage of the population can reverse their Type 2 Diabetes by adopting this way of life?
  • How can endurance athletes continue doing the sports they love while eating this way?

And Tim will share with us:

  • What happened to his health when he adopted this way of life.
  • How the Associated Dieticians of South Africa reacted.
  • The battle he ultimately won to clear his name.
  • The benefits of shaking the sugar addiction.

Professor Timothy Noakes is a dear friend of mine. He has a wealth of knowledge about nutrition and has fought the fight of his life to share it with the world.

“I realised within 2 hours ‘oh my gosh I got it all wrong!’”

“We would have loved them to go to the High Court because we would have nailed them finally and we would have exposed the collusion behind the scenes.”

“Never again can anyone be charged in a court for prescribing the low carb diet on the grounds that it is dangerous.”

“We’re up against an industry that is ruthless and has no interest in your health or my health.”
