Nicolas Tzenios is an educational focused business manager and has been a hospital administrator for many years.
Nic was born in Beirut in 1971, the eldest of four siblings. His father’s family were originally Greek, but they fled from what used to be called the Ottoman Empire in the 1900s. His mother was Lebanese. When he was a baby, he used to cry and cry until she gave him another feed. From the start, he had double doses of food. His mother was always opposed to food with anything added, including sugar. She prepared all their food at home to avoid the harmful effect of industrial packaged sweets and treats.
Interestingly, Nic still gained weight but he was able to lose this during puberty (due to hormonal factors). Unfortunately, after this period, he started putting the weight back on again. Most of the people on his father’s side of the family were big. He had one cousin who is so fat he can’t freely walk. He seemed to have inherited a predisposition in this direction.
Nic believes that for more than 40 years, we have been sold a lie about diet. As somebody immersed in the world of medicine, He had a powerful desire to help overturn society’s misguided nutritional assumptions. He also felt that he had a duty to share what he had learned.
I see my mission as having two parts. The first is a technical challenge: showing people how to lose weight and become healthier and happier. The second part is the adaptive challenge of changing mentalities.” Tzenios, 2018
