Brian's Banting Kitchen Pop-Up on June, 8, 2019 in Pringle Bay
Well known Cape Town public relations consultant and journalist Brian Berkman successfully shed the heft which caused his Type 2 Diabetes and transformed himself from a sedentary heavyweight to someone who is fit and enjoys an active lifestyle.
He attributes his massive weight loss and success in keeping the bulk off, for more than five years, to the low-carbohydrate and high-fat diet commonly referred to as Banting or Keto which was brought to global attention by Prof Tim Noakes.
“These pop-ups, in our light-filled Pringle Bay home around our long table, will serve as the foundation for Low-Carb Sugar-Free Entertaining for the Lazy Cook, a recipe and how-to guide to low-carb entertaining.
