Why We're Here
We have one main goal at Be Fit Food: we want to help Australians to eat themselves better.
There’s no denying that Australia’s obesity rates are continuously on the rise and there is little education in place to show the public the effects of added sugar & sodium, high carb & large portioned diets can have not just on our weight, but on our general health & wellbeing.
That’s why our founders, Dr Geoffrey Draper, a bariatric surgeon, and Kate Save, an accredited practising dietitian & exercise physiologist, started Be Fit Food.
Our programs give our customers the food, resources and dietitian support they need to healthily lose weight rapidly and sustain their weight loss through eating nutrient-rich, real food rather than resorting solely on shakes, bars or detox teas.
Our recipes are created by our team of dietitians and are designed to bring the body into mild nutritional ketosis, which makes the body burn stored fat rather than carbohydrates and helps our customers to feel fuller for longer, have more energy throughout their day, sleep better and help towards other health benefits such as lowered cholesterol & balanced blood sugar levels.
