Simon Says: I have lost a considerable amount of weight, not by eating grass and berries. Basically, it was a result of eating at sensible times and being mindful mainly of what, not how much, I was eating. The result was enough to turn my Type two diabetes around. That, understandably, has made a huge difference to my life and future. If that’s not enough, I can say without hesitation, the transformation process was enjoyable. Life is not about unrealistic goals that are achievable only by inflicting unpleasant remedies. The Four Wheels process is to be enjoyed and the outcomes celebrated. Having said that I lost weight, I need to emphasise that this not a weight loss program. It is a lifestyle change program with huge health benefits. One should regard any weight loss as a side effect of regaining good health. No eating enjoyment has suffered during my transformation.

Sean says: Coming from a love of science throughout school and natural enthusiasm for seeking answers, I was lead into Biochemistry in University. Realising I didn't want to be stuck in a lab everyday and I wanted to do something practical, I got into the science of Nutrition and Exercise instead. By the end of my degree, it was clear that what we were being taught was ruining our health. The science didn't match the education. Now I'm taking the real science of health directly to the people, not the rusty nutrition I was taught, but the newest research in the health field.
The best part about it is, it works.
