My Professional Bio

I developed the 16-hrs For Life program as a result of my own journey with low-carb eating, as well as helping friends, family, and clients.

To lose weight, I decided to run an Ultra Marathon in 1999. To my surprise, many months of intense training (1450 km of running) to complete the 90km Comrades Marathon did little to get me to my goal weight. I resigned myself to the “middle-age spread”.

8 years later I read a book by Prof Tim Noakes titled: Challenging Beliefs. The book had a chapter on how the overconsumption of sugar was the cause of weight gain and ultimately, metabolic disease.

I started implementing some of the dietary principles in the book, and added some of my own learnings. My health improved. I lost 24 kilograms, which I manage to keep off. I also feel energized and know I will never pick up weight again.

    When I started the program with Shaun, I weighed 92 kg and had 5 months to reach my target weight of 82 kg. During the initial and challenging stage of turning my body into a fat-burning machine. The information he shared with me via the website made for a very rewarding experience. The process made me take note of the nutritional value of food. Discovering what I was putting into my body all these years, especially sugar and what it does to my health was a real eye-opener. I reached my goal weight in only 14 weeks, and have maintained my weight effortlessly ever since. Today I have a renewed relationship with food, my cravings have diminished dramatically, and I have more energy.

    "Overall I would highly recommend Shaun as a coach, trainer & motivator. He has deep levels of knowledge on the subject of diet, exercise, and motivation techniques. He was always available when I needed to chat and remained relentlessly positive and inspiring during this journey. I continue to practice Shaun's approach with great results."
