Dr Madhvi Chanrai is a trustee and volunteer of the Hand In Hand International charity and an independent researcher. Dr Chanrai graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1986 where she studied medicine and ‘food and human nutrition’ as an undergraduate option. She later became a GP. On her blog, The Doctor’s Digest, Dr Chanrai says that she has been ‘obsessed with diets, food and cooking for nigh on 40 years’. She has also been reading recipe books and books on nutrition in her spare time since the age of 11. It, therefore, seemed like a natural progression to put some of this knowledge into a blog. She organised a seminar on evolutionary nutrition at the Royal Society of Medicine in London in 2015. She is helping to organise another in Lisbon in October 2017.

Australian GP Dr Nick Tellis is Practice Principal at the Partridge Street General Practice in Glenelg, Adelaide, and Chair of Southern Adelaide General Practice Council. He uses his medical knowledge to help patients achieve their health goals. “The body will go where the mind leads it,” Dr Tellis says. Thus, he firmly believes that taking the time to communicate well achieves real, long-term change for patients. He believes that doctors need more training in nutrition. Diabetes and obesity have increased over the last 30 years and medical advice must move on and address this, he says. Dr Tellis has researched and implemented LCHF/ketogenic diets for himself and his valued patients because “eat less and walk more” is clearly not working. “Medicine is a lifetime of ongoing learning and LCHF is a great tool to manage weight and health,” he says. Dr Tellis takes particular interest in promoting good mental health and is listed as a provider with Beyond Blue. You can follow him on Twitter (@partridgegp), and on Facebook, or email email@example.com.

Dr Shanahan is also author of the underground classic, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, and the easy-to-read guidebook of holistic nutrition, Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide to Healthy Eating. She became an advocate for healthy living when she began to observe dramatic declines in the health of her patients’ bone structure, immune-system function, and behavioral development in subsequent generations of patients in the same family. She attributes these changes to the two most common processed foods in the American diet: vegetable oils and sugars. Combined, these two account for 70-80% of our total daily caloric intake. She works to empower her patients and readers with the knowledge to lose weight, get healthy, and have healthy children by following principles of traditional nutrition.
