Join Acorn Press author Angela Doucette in conversation with David Rashed and Jill Sabean as they discuss Doucette’s new book The Keto Solution: A Practical Guide for Living Your Low-Carbohydrate Life during the online book launch October 14 from 7–8 pm at bookmarkreads.ca.
At the age of 40, Angela Doucette was seriously overweight and starting to show signs of metabolic disease. She had developed high blood pressure and had some concerning numbers in her cholesterol/lipid profile. She switched to a more primal way of eating and was finally able to shift the weight. Surprisingly, her blood pressure decreased naturally, her hs-CRP (an inflammatory marker) dropped significantly, and her lipid profile improved without medication. As a way to share the benefits, she started a weight loss and coaching program and offers workshops as well as online and in-person meetings. She has also created a peer support network through the Keto Solution Facebook group.
Doucette graduated from Dalhousie College of Pharmacy in 1992. After her own battle with weight issues, and losing her father to heart disease at the age of 58, Angela developed a special interest in Therapeutic Nutrition for Obesity and Metabolic Disease management. As a pharmacist, she is particularly interested in a food first approach to the management of Type 2 Diabetes and helping people reduce medication use. Angela is a Certified Bariatric Educator through the Canadian Obesity Network and a member of Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition. She is passionate about helping others struggling with weight and other lifestyle related health challenges. She lives in Charlottetown.
Jill Sabean and David Rashed offer peer support within the Keto Solution community. During the book launch they will discuss their experiences with a low carbohydrate, high fat diet.
Packed with recipes and helpful hints, The Keto Solution is a key ingredient for switching to a Keto lifestyle. It’s available at bookmarkreads.ca.
