Dedicated Health Engineer and Author of the book "Become your own Health Engineer – tools for metabolic health!".
Ewa Meurk is a Health Engineer. She combines her technical background (Master of Engineering from KTH – Kungliga Tekniska högskolan – Royal Institute of Technology) with a solid education from the fields of Functional Medicine, Nutrition and Sports Nutrition. She is also a certified addiction medicine coach specialising in food and sugar.
For many years, Ewa believed that health was all about eating less and running more. But the only results she saw were a lighter wallet and a heavier body. She only started to see improvement when she changed things around and stopped following well-established but outdated recommendations. When Ewa started following a more ketogenic diet, she found herself more energised, healthier and slimmer.
These surprising results sparked Ewa’s lifelong passion for understanding nutrition and health from an engineer’s perspective. Ewa now dedicates all her spare time (as much as she has given her full-time job as an entrepreneur and IT company CEO!) to understanding the science of metabolic health.
In the past decade our understanding of the metabolism, obesity, high blood sugar, and insulin has progressed by leaps and bounds, and Ewa has been working hard to spread this new knowledge. Ewa helped launch FunMed – Europe’s biggest functional medicine doctors clinic. Ewa also runs Elitista – an educational company where she holds presentations and runs courses for people who want to understand their own health better.
