About the Author

Prof. Tim Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 16 000 times in scientific literature, has an h-index of 71 and is rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa. After coming across research which denounced current international dietary guidelines as fallacy and being left frustrated by a decline in his own health, Prof. Noakes started researching the effects of carbohydrates, proteins and fats on the human race. His research convinced him that a high-fat, low-carb diet is the healthiest option for many.
