EAT BETTER SOUTH AFRICA!

EAT BETTER SOUTH AFRICA!

Personal message

The Noakes Foundation is committed to spending one year educating and supporting people from previously disadvantaged communities to get better by eating better.

A community near you could, through this programme be trained on the Banting on a Budget programme The Noakes Foundation has developed through the Ocean View community pilot intervention.

This medically supervised programme is run by a team of expert doctors, nurses, and Banting educators who support people from previously disadvantaged communities to improve their health by changing their eating habits.

Our cursory study in Ocean View was dramatically successful – 98% of the candidates lost weight, inches, felt better and many who had completed the programme normalised dangerously high blood pressures within five weeks. You can view the video of how the initiative changed lives, here.

We have the team in place, the action plan ready to implement and we are ready to get the nation eating better with your support.

The impending Diabetes tsunami is set to cripple state and private healthcare in the next ten years and we urge you, especially if Banting and the work of Prof Noakes has changed your or a loved one’s life for the better, to take action and help us change the state of South Africa’s health.  You have the opportunity to give back at this critical time in our country where we are seeing children develop early dietary onset related diseases and as our country is ravaged by obesity.

To achieve our funding goal of R1,5 million which will allow us to fund at least one community per province in South Africa next year, we only need 15,000 banters to donate at least R100, today.
