You may have heard that the Banting Diet is great for weight loss. There is no denying it. Banting works. And it works fast.

What a lot of people don’t know is that it works for a whole bunch of other stuff too.

In the first edition of The Real Meal Revolution book, Prof Noakes described obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia as merely the tip of the metabolic-syndrome iceberg. He suggested that insulin resistance was actually at the core of most lifestyle diseases and that atherogenic dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, gout, and Type 2 Diabetes may all be symptoms of a combination of a diet high in carbs and inherited or manifested insulin resistance.

There is a desperate need for clinical trials on the above matter, because if this theory is scientifically sound (RMR and 300,000 other Banters think it is blatantly obvious), there may be little need for chronic medication in the future.

Take a moment to think about that. Who would benefit least from a lack of need for chronic medication? Pharmaceutical companies perhaps? Let’s just say the Real Meal Revolution is not holding its breath for any results getting published any day soon.

Real Meal Revolution is a business and the first rule of business is ‘The customer is always right’. That’s why we developed our program using the success stories of our customers as the foundation of our model. We regularly analyze big data from our tracking tools in conjunction with countless testimonials to distill the key factors that are present in each successful journey. These factors were used to devise a model that minimizes side-effects and maximizes results through our revolutionary four-phased approach to low carb.

By following the phases of The Banting Diet, Real Meal Revolution customers have been able to reverse a multitude of ailments.

The program is divided into four phases that equip your body and your mind for a total transformation by giving you the best Banting recipes and Banting meal plans to suit your specific needs.


Banting Observation

During observation, you get to grips with your attitude towards food, your lifestyle and how it may impact your appearance and what the food you eat actually does to you.

Banting Restoration

Restoration uses specific Banting recipes to replenish nutrients and gut flora that you may have lost in order to prime your body and your mind for rapid fat burning in the next phase.

Banting Transformation

Customized Banting meal plans switch your body into a state of fat fuelled weight loss bringing about a mental and physical transformation.

Banting Preservation

Preservation gets you into a gear that you can sustain for the rest of your life. And that is that.

  2. Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes
