Like many others, Sally-Ann Creed spent decades of her life navigating the maze of health, lifestyle and diet misinformation, all while suffering with chronic illness. With the help of her 'health hero' Dr Robbie Simons, Creed now leads a healthy, happy life and is a pioneer of the Low-Carb, Healthy Fat (LCHF) lifestyle. In this beautifully illustrated book, Creed delivers her LCHF manifesto, offering simple, clear and practical guidance that will convince even the most reluctant, world-weary dieters.

The Low-Carb, Healthy Fat Bible delivers the perfect lifestyle for hunger-free weight loss. At its heart is an emphasis on delicious, uncomplicated recipes based around real food cooked from scratch, rather than unhealthy processed foods.

About the Author

Having spent her early years in and out of ICU units, suffering from chronic illness, and her 20s battling an ever-escalating list of ailments, Creed found herself on dozens of medications, seeing innumerable doctors and specialists, and undergoing endless tests and thirteen sinus operations.

After decades of searching for a stable sense of medical wellbeing, it wasn't until Dr Robbie Simons gave Creed back her health and her life that she decided to study the subject further. She went on to achieve a postgraduate diploma in Clinical Nutrition and later studied Functional Medicine.

Sally-Ann Creed is the author of nine books, including the bestselling Let Food Be Your Medicine, which is still viewed as a classic today.
