Bitte Kempe Björkman

 has been eating real food since January 2009 which she says literally changed her life! She lost 15 kilos, migraines, gastric catarrh, dry skin, low energy levels etc. Now, in her golden middle age,she feels more energized and healthier than ever!

In her working life, she has been a reporter and with marketing most of her life. Her life took a new, exciting twist in 2014 when she trained to be a dietary advisor. She could never imagine that that would lead her to where she is today: working with her passion – diet and health – and having good use of her earlier working experiences. It is the perfect mix. And she loves what she is doing with The Low Carb Universe!

Bitte is married and has two daughters.  She shares her time between her favorite island Mallorca (Spain) and Stocksund, a community north of Stockholm, Sweden.

Hanna Boëthius

has lived with Type 1 Diabetes as her constant companion for 35 years, and it was as if her whole life fell into place when she started eating real food in 2011. Since her wake up call, she has gained much of her health back, thanks to simply eating the right things and nutrients for her body.

Hanna is an international speaker, writer, podcaster and action taker, who loves diabetes topics that are off of the beaten track. She’s passionate to find motivational and inspiring ways to bring about a change in diabetes management. Through her own company, Hanna Diabetes Expert, she’s inspired thousands of people with diabetes to live a healthier life by sharing her own story and experiences, as well as the puzzle pieces she’s helped others to find. She has a profound understanding of how things like nutrition and lifestyle choices can balance diabetes.

She is also the founder of the very first interactive, 100% real food event, called The Low Carb Universe.  It’s Europe’s healthiest event!

"My body was so fed up with all my dieting, pills and powders and the calorie counting it was like ‘Hallelujah’ when it finally got nutrition and enough energy."

"When people say ‘you are not allowed to eat that’ or ‘that’s not low carb’  You need to see the whole picture, the nuances …[where you are in your journey]"

"It doesn’t matter what age you are when you start eating real food because your body will appreciate you either way. "
