My three boys


OK got your attention. Look I’m really trying to upgrade this blog and send out relevant (and helpful) material, so please let me know what can be improved and what you’d like to see. I’m also really happy to answer any questions, take your success stories in getting fit and healthy and so forth.

Any success or otherwise in carbohydrate restriction is really likely to help others so don’t be shy,

Just drop me an email and I will do my best.


From bottom to top that’s Jackson (10), Sam (12), and Dan (3) – all good examples of plenty of potential!

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

One thought on “My three boys”

  1. Hi, I have just found your blog after reading Mikki’s latest post. I have Kona coming up in 6 weeks and have had success with LCHF under Mikki’s guidance. Kona will be my 6th ironman race. My race weight has always been around 52 kg. Using LCHF for the last 4 months, Ive noticed more balanced energy levels, no massive slumps and way less snacking. I used to snack all day and never feel full. Anyway, while LFHC has been fantastic, Ive actually gained weight, Ive been sitting on 54/55 since a couple of weeks after starting LCHF. With just over 6 weeks until Kona, Ive started wondering if this matters? Everything I read about the world champs talks about being at your lightest to cope better with the heat. Will the extra 2kgs be detrimental I wonder on race day? Im wondering if before LCHF I was actually under weight? Love to hear you thoughts. Im 42, and I also have 3 boys! Full on at 11, 10 and 7! Crazy energy 24/7!
