The current decline in our nation’s health makes me frustrated, furious and fired up to create change!
I am driven by a feeling of duty, to pass on the knowledge I have gained in turning my own health around (I was obese for over 25 years) to others. To do this, I spend most of my working days on several different approaches to health education.
I am passionate about preventing and reversing, diabetes type 2, obesity and metabolic syndrome across the UK. Therefore, I spend my working days on several different approaches. I created an organisation called Health Results to help people explore, measure, and improve their metabolic health and I am a benefactor to two charities the Public Health Collaboration (PHC) and the Colourful Life Foundation.
I am a dad to 7 wonderful children, 2 adorable grandchildren and husband to a great wife. My day job after the morning school run is following my passion to educate our country about metabolic health and I also executively chair several companies that I previously founded. I love adventures too, and have trekked to the North Pole, sailed across the Atlantic, undertook some mammoth Strive Challenges and more recently, along with several members of the PHC cycled 500 miles in five days with Zero calories! See “Zero five 500” on YouTube.

Quotes by Steve Bennett
“I was sacrificing sleep”
“We got buckets and buckets of cubes of sugar and we filled the coffin up bit by bit based on his food choices.”
“The reality is bread is sugar, the reality is cereals are sugar, baked potatoes are sugar and nothing but sugar.”
“It’s the duty of a director in a company maximise shareholder return on investment.”
“Governments have got to start stepping up.”
“We’re up against Big Food and Big Pharma.”
“Those chronic illnesses that take up 4 out of 5 hospital beds.”
“The blood can only suspend 1tsp of sugar at any one time.”
“There is one thing the government has to do, is get rid of their stupid Eat Well Guidelines.”
“So we have to get people disliking the fact that there are so many chemicals in our food that don’t need to be there.”
“We’ve eradicated virtually all the things people died of 100 years ago.”
