Gary’s interest in nutrition and weight management stems from a life-long love of cooking (and eating) nutritious, well-balanced meals. This passion led him to England, where he pursued and achieved a Culinary Arts degree from City and Guilds of London. Gary opened a successful bed and breakfast, a pub, and a restaurant in the Channel Islands, Jersey, England-where he was also a chef. He enjoys combining this practical knowledge and experience with his studies in nutritional therapy to help clients use food as medicine to prevent and treat disease.
