Since the launch of the original Real Meal Revolution
in November 2013, low-carb high-fat (LCHF) eating – otherwise known as Banting – has taken South Africa by storm. The book has sold 275,000 copies and counting, and both it and its follow-up title, Raising Superheroes
, have been published internationally by the Little, Brown Book Group. The Real Meal Revolution website has seen more than two million visitors since its launch in 2014 and the company supports thousands of Banters on a monthly basis. Inevitably, a topic that has such far-reaching health implications and generates so much interest has brought with it controversy, confusion and copycats. Three years after the revolution hit South Africa, it’s time for an overview of what we’ve learnt from the original Banting revolutionaries.
Having collated reams of data and overwhelming quantities of personal feedback from those who’ve embraced Banting and had their lives changed for the better as a result, the Real Meal Revolution returns to bookstores with a comprehensive, authoritative handbook on the Banting lifestyle, incorporating the latest science on LCHF eating, gut health, gluten sensitivity, fasting and more.
The result is the evolution of the revolution: a streamlined, accessible, easy-to-read review of what Banting means and how to approach LCHF eating in the most effective way possible.

Tue, 4 Jul 2017 | Review by: Robin F
Rich person's diet. However, after following it for 3 months, got diagnosed with Kidney issues. Reverted back to balanced carb diet and kidney issues went away. No wonder it comes with a disclaimer in the book. I thought this was going to be a good book, it really is not. The products cost a fortune and the book goes on about staying away from processed foods, yet supermarkets are stocking this book's branded items that are processed? Complete money making scam. Waste of time and money. When I was on the diet, I lost a few kg, not much, spent a lot on the foods, felt sick, had loss of memory (side effect of no carbs), ended up at the doctor. He himself said this diet is the most dangerous diet to follow. He said he had seen numerous patients that were suffering the side effects, ranging from heart issues, liver issues to kidney issues an so on, all attributed to this diet. I consulted a dietician 2 months ago and have lost more in the two months than when I was following this scam, and now I feel great. If you follow this diet, you do so at your own risk, that is why they put a disclaimer in the book.....think about that.
