How I started
In 1999 I decided to lose weight and was fed up with calorie controlled diets. The Atkins Diet was only just making an appearance in the UK so I thought I would give it a go. I struggled finding snacky foods to eat in the UK but over in the US there were hundreds! I found low carb chocolate and couldn't believe it, I could go on a diet and still eat chocolate!! Woo Hoo!! I scoured the internet but no one was selling low carb products in the UK, so I thought I would give it a go. My Dad and Sister are both Type 1 diabetics and my wonderful Dad lent me £1000 to buy my first supply of chocolate. I was working at Heathrow Airport at the time and used my connections to import the pallet of chocolate. My Dad cleared his garage out for me and I worked out of that to start with. The trouble was that my Dad kept pinching the stock, I kept finding cash where the chocolate should have been :-)
There have been a few bumps along the way, but this is what I do best and is what I love, so I have now started Carblife.
I hope you enjoy eating Low Carb. I think its the only way to eat.....
