    Stephanie Joyner of Complete Living (www.completeliving.co.za) is a  consulting dietician based in Pietermaritzburg, in South Africa. She has been using low-carb,healthy fat, real food regimens in her practice for some years now.  She says there is no such thing as a one-size- fits-all approach for weight loss or the management of medical conditions. She sees each person as a unique individual, with different needs, goals and lifestyles. Stephanie says a holistic and lifestyle approach is needed for any improvement in wellness. Nutrition is just  one part of the puzzle. However, one should not underestimate the positive impact that an eating plan which focuses on whole foods and nutrient density can have one one’s health and body composition. Seeing somebody with metabolic syndrome, diabetes, high blood pressure or any other chronic condition transform into a leaner, healthier and happier person brings her immense joy. Being a Comrades marathon runner, she also enjoys working with athletes, from elites to weekend warriors.

    At Real Food Dietitians, South African registered dietitians Tamzyn Murphy Campbell and Bridget Surtees believe in a whole food, real food approach for everyone. In simple terms, this means: no refined carbohydrates, no packaged foods and no added sugars. By eating this way, they say we will naturally eat a lower-carbohydrate, higher-fat diet. They don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Some individuals’ medical history will dictate a very low-carbohydrate approach; others may tolerate higher levels. The same goes for fats. Tamzyn and Bridget provide private, couple, family and Skype nutritional consultations. Their focus is on adults with overweight/obesity, PCOS, features of the metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, hyperlipidaemia, overweight, central adiposity), diabetes (type 1 and type 2) and sports people who want to adapt to an LCHF lifestyle. They provide guidance for healthy eating during pregnancy and nutrition through the ages. They are available for group talks and nutritional training and education.
