Real Food - Good Health

Welcome to the Freshwell Low Carb Project

Encouraging members of our community to live a Real Food Low Carb lifestyle so they may be as healthy as possible

Making the Freshwell change

The Freshwell Low Carb Project is an initiative set up by Dr David Oliver and Dr Kim Andrews at the Freshwell Health Centre, Essex, UK. This project grew out of our concern about the rise in incidence of type 2 diabetes over the last few years, alongside the widely reported rapid increase in obesity in the UK population.

In response to this the team have produced the Freshwell Low Carb Programme.
