Mitzi R. Champion MPH, MPA, FNTP
Mitzi has been following the low carb/keto/PHD (Proper Human Diet) lifestyle more than seven years. She recently finished her master’s degree in Public Health with a concentration in nutrition. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Health Sciences and her current area of research expertise is “The effective use of social media in the delivery of a health intervention.” She is a moderator and PHD Mentor in Dr. Berry’s Mighty Network and YouTube Channel. She is also a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP), an experienced health coach, and a yoga teacher.
Eleven years ago, she was obese with a long list of medical conditions including: depression, ADD, fatty liver, pre-diabetic, insulin resistant, sleep apnea, acid reflux, joint pain, planter’s fasciitis, brain fog, gas and bloating, acne, and dry eye syndrome. In 2020 she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and decided it was time to have her breast implants removed. After implant removal and breast re-construction surgery in 2021, she has seen a marked improvement in her thyroid blood markers. She is currently on no medications.
Mitzi found her way to low carb in 2015 and in May of 2016, attended her first Low Carb Cruise, was inspired to try Keto. She’s lost at least 50+ pounds, but she’s not totally sure of her heaviest weight, because she refused to ever get on the scale again when she hit 200 pounds.
In her civilian job she works in Defense Acquisition and is a senior logistician for the US.
Mary has 9 years of food sobriety and recovery from bulimia, binge eating disorder, and compulsive eating. Prior to pursuing a ketogenic lifestyle she battled her eating disorders, and suffered from type two diabetes, hypertension, psoriasis, asthma, allergies, sleep apnea, and snoring. All of which were resolved with a real food Ketogenic way of eating. Mary lost over 100 pounds and is medication free, while maintaining a non-diabetic A1c and overall good health.
Mary’s passion is helping others break free from food obsession and emotional eating, which is a result of eating disorders/disordered behavior with food. She also has a heart for working with type two diabetics with food addiction. She helps them reverse their diabetes through a real food way of eating and by overcoming their disordered relationship with food so they can maintain a non diabetic status.
