We’re Elena and John, founders of LCHF Nation, an informational website and weight loss coaching service devoted to those who want to lose weight, are insulin resistant, pre-diabetic / diabetic or who follow a keto, primal LCHF way of eating and enjoy cooking and eating great tasting healthy food.
Elena has a Masters Degree in Nutrition and Public Health from Curtin University in Australia and is a fully accredited and certified life coach. Her expertise is in helping people successfully lose weight and transform their health.
Elena spent several years teaching health promotion and nutrition to university undergraduates. In 2011, with her husband John, she founded the White Lion Baking Company (WLBC), the first grain-free, low-carb, paleo bakery in the US. Elena has a passion for creating and cooking healthy LCHF food, a strong dedication to improving health and she is passionate about staying in shape by eating a LCHF, keto, primal and unprocessed diet. She has a passion for helping people transform their health and achieve their goals.
John has a Masters Degree in biology from the Antioch New Hampshire. Along with Elena, he is the co-founder of White Lion Baking Company (WLBC). John is a talented baker and cook and, like Elena enjoys preparing healthy LCHF food that’s easy to prepare and is pleasing to all five senses. He has been eating and cooking his whole life so considers himself an expert on the subject John prides himself on maintaining his svelte figure which he attributes to a healthy LCHF way of eating.
Through years of hard-won experience, we’ve discovered that a primal LCHF diet is the easiest, most effective, painless (read: no hunger!), healthy, and tasty way to eat in order to stay slim and avoid gaining weight especially as we age. We started LCHF Nation to share our experiences, expertise, lifestyle and recipes and to demonstrate, how by making a few simple changes to the way you eat, it is easy to enjoy life without putting on weight.
More About Us
We’ve always enjoyed good food and everything that goes along with it – reading about it, talking about it, shopping for it, preparing and eating it, sharing it with our family and friends, pairing it with wine, photographing it and traveling to see how other people prepare and eat it. Above all else we LOVE to cook.
Our weekends are very often spent in the kitchen cooking and experimenting with new cuisines and inventing new recipes! Given our love of food, it stands to reason that we’re not going to adopt any way of eating that is limiting, boring, uncreative, and not tasty, satisfying, or healthy – or especially that makes us feel deprived and hungry. We have definitely found a way of eating that we love and that keeps us healthy and slim and that is the primal low-carb high-fat (LCHF) way. We have eaten LCHF for over five years now and we’re never going back!
