Welcome to the Low-Carb Practitioners Directory

Founder And CEO


I’m Libby Jenkinson and the founder of Ditch The Carbs.comDitch The Carbs PRO.com and Low-Carb Practitioners.com


As a registered pharmacist, Health Coach, mother of 3 and busy mum, I am in the unique position of being able to understand the science behind low-carb nutrition and translate it into easy, practical steps, with a family.


Once I discovered the incredible health benefits of low-carb, ketogenic and whole-food nutrition, I left her 25-year career as a pharmacist and have dedicated my time entirely to helping readers regain their health through low-carb nutrition.


I truly believe I have helped more people regain their health in the last few years with low-carb nutrition than in the last 25 years of dispensing medication. "You can't medicate yourself out of a poor diet and lifestyle".

"There's a low-carb movement happening worldwide, and I want you to be part of it"

About Low-Carb Practitioners

My Low-Carb Practitioners Directory has been created after being asked every single day to recommend a local practitioner who is low-carb friendly. As I have an international audience, creating a directory website was the answer.


This website has been started to help people like you, find a low-carb practitioner in your local area or online.


But I also wish to offer a place for education for low-carb practitioners and their patients.

To introduce them to the incredible health benefits of living low-carb.


The current food pyramid is fading away, saturated fat is no longer feared, sugar and ultra-processed carbs are the real cause of so many nutrition related diseases, and the cholesterol hypothesis of causing heart disease is well and truly over.


As a pharmacist, I saw the complications from chronic high blood sugars. I saw patients who couldn’t manage their medications nor their blood sugar levels.


I do not give advice via my website as major lifestyle changes, especially those that require titration of medication, cannot be done without a full and thorough medical history taken and full, ongoing support with medical professional advice.


And this is why we need more low-carb practitioners - worldwide.
