Jon Furniss has used a ketogenic diet since 2019 to normalise his blood sugar whilst living with T1 diabetes. He is a passionate Public Health Collaboration charity ambassador, and trained health coach – providing metabolic information and coaching services to support others to normalise their blood sugar.
Jon is a long-term competitive cyclist, having raced the national 24hr time trial championships, and ridden John O’Groats to Lands End in 7 days. Until 2019 he was ‘conventionally’ fuelled with large amounts of carbohydrates – and suffered as a consequence. Now fuelled by fat, Jon continues as a keen club-level cyclist and will talk about the benefits of low carbohydrate performance in sport.
