Barry Groves, who lives with his wife, Monica, in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, can rightfully claim to be Britain's leading exponent of the low-carb way of life as he has lived on, researched, lectured and written about it for well over 40 years.
He and Monica were overweight from 1957 to 1962, when he discovered the low-carb regime for weight loss. It worked; they haven't been overweight since.This started his questioning of conventional diets.As a consequence he took up full-time research into the relationship between diet and 'diseases of civilisation' such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. As a result of his researches, he realised that the perceived wisdoms, both of low-calorie dieting for weight loss and 'healthy eating' for the control of heart disease, were seriously flawed.
Now an award winning international author with a doctorate in nutritional science, Barry has written both popular and more technical books which have been published in countries as far apart as Argentina and Russia, as well as all English-speaking countries. He currently divides his time between researching, lecturing and writing books about the management and prevention of obesity, diabetes and associated conditions.
