Lose 1.5kg to 2.5kg (3.5lb to 5.5lb) Effortlessly Each Month, Eating a Sustainable Four Meals a Day Diet, with Carbs Included.

4 Meals a Day Sample

Second Variation
(Multiple Options)

Over 150 years ago, after a 30 year battle to lose his excess weight, William Banting effortlessly lost more than 20kg (46lb) during a 12 month period, (between 1.5kg and 2.5kg each month) and HE NEVER HAD A WEIGHT PROBLEM AGAIN.

William wrote a book about he how did it and he gave it away, it helped thousands of people around the world and William's name was added to the dictionary, and it's still there today.

Welcome to Banting.com

The Banting Diet, (the four meals a day diet) was the very first sustainable weight loss diet ever started, way back in 1862, it's named after William Banting, my Great Great Great Great Grandfather, on my Dad's side of the family.

This photo below is my Dad, (Syd) who like William, struggled with his weight for a lot of his life too, but where William found a solution to his weight problem in his 60's, my Dad didn't, he had a heart attack and died when he was 57, in 2002.

William Banting first wrote his book, Letter on Corpulence, (Excess Weight) in 1863, and he gave it away to anyone who wanted help reducing their weight, William paid for the printing costs initially to ensure that his book reached people easily.

I've now simplified William's book, re-arranging the first 3 editions of it into chronological order, I've also underlined important comments and phrases too, and written 'today words' next to old words not used anymore, William's 12 Month Weight Loss Timeline is outlined on page 29 of his book, click here, (or the cover below) to download a pdf copy.

William was one of only three men to have his name put in the dictionary, the Bantingism movement named after him.

The definition of Bantingism is still in the dictionary today, here it is below, followed by my updated definition.

William's Difference

What was different about William's 4 meals a day diet compared to other 'low carb' diets today (see FAQ's for more detail) is William still kept a good amount of carbs in his diet, (but a lot less than he used to eat). For example, one or two of William's daily meals still had bread in them, William also ate fruit every afternoon, fruit was his third meal of the day, William also mentions eating rice in his book too.

What William did, aside from increasing his protein intake was simply lower his sugar, starch and saturated fat intake, William didn't remove carbs completely from his diet like The Keto Diet does, or very nearly does, I think keto is closer to a no carb diet than a low carb diet. (Keto is known in South Africa as Banting, see FAQ's for more on that)

It was William's sustainable 4 meals a day diet (with carbs included) that I've now modernised to effectively and effortlessly lose between 1.5kg and 2.5kg each month, the way William lost his excess weight.

Banting for Prevention

Where William's weight struggle started for him in his 30's and went on for the next 30 years, mine started as a kid and went on for around 30 years too, until recently that is, during a 12 month period I lost a little over 15kg on my way to modernising The Banting Diet.

My weight has gone up and down most of my life, (usually depending on the amount of physical fitness I've been doing) but this time it's different, and it's all as a result of figuring out William's sustainable 4 meals a day (carbs included) Banting diet.

I'm writing a follow up book to William's book, it's called Banting for Prevention, anyone will be able to download it for free right here.
