Personal interests

Gary’s interest in nutrition and weight management stems from a life-long love of cooking (and eating) nutritious, well balanced meals.  This passion led him to England, where he pursued and achieved a Culinary Arts degree from City and Guilds of London. Gary opened a successful bed and breakfast, a pub, and a restaurant in the Channel Islands, Jersey, England—where he was also chef. He enjoys combining this practical knowledge and experience with his studies in nutritional therapy to help clients use food as medicine to prevent and treat disease.

Healthy lifestyle

If you've spent anytime with Gary you have undoubtedly heard him mention his lifestyle and love of exercise and running. He believes that this lifestyle is the cornerstone of all health and prevention of "dis-ease" in the body.
