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 dyslipidaemia, 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 400,000 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 analyse big data from our tracking tools in conjunction with countless testimonials to distil the key factors that are present in each successful journey. These factors were used to devise a model that minimises side-effects and maximises 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 designed to 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.


  1. Weight loss
  2. Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes
  3. Disappearance of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Please note that if you are on chronic medication, we recommend your physician monitors your medication from the moment you join the program. Banting often works so quickly that normal medication doses may become dangerous if not managed closely.
