Sharon is a qualified Diet and Nutrition advisor and holder of the Ketogenic Diet Diploma (both with distinction).
A serial entrepreneur, Sharon has built and evolved a series of food-based businesses. She started from her first market stall in 1992, progressing to a retail shop in 2001, a food service offering “healthy” buffet lunches and vending services to local businesses in 2004, through to her current nutrition-based business both advising and cooking for people following a low-carb, high-fat diet, which launched in 2015. This business continues to have huge success supporting its clients’ weight-loss and fitness goals, including improved management of diabetes to reduce or eliminate their medication.
Her business evolution has been guided by her own personal journey. In 2013, she discovered the low-carb lifestyle and became one of DietDoctor.com’s first success stories for women over 40. This led her to study nutrition and then ketogenic diets, as she found that the standard nutritional advice was almost the complete opposite to what had worked for herself and many of her clients.
In parallel, and building on her own experience of running meetings to share the benefits of the low-carb lifestyle with friends and family, she became the moderator of the Keto UK Community group on Facebook in 2016, and set up a sister low-carb group. Between them there are over 60k members. Together with her husband, she built a website https://www.low-carbs.co.uk/ to compliment the groups with extensive content on every aspect of Keto and low carb, and a section to support moderators running the groups.
