Founder of the SHIFT Formula, and Best-Selling Author of 'FOOD B.S.', Barb McDermott has helped countless people suffering from diabetes (type 1 and type 2), cancer, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pain, weight gain, pre-diabetes, depression, and other ailments.
For over two decades, Barb and her husband owned and operated a chain of health clubs. She also hosted her own exercise television show and produced top-selling exercise videos. As a highly sought after fitness instructor, Barb would watch member after member slip into declining health with steady chronic weight gain, despite religiously exercising. Little did she know… the solution would present itself through her daughter Erin… soon to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
Along with her health and fitness experience, Barb is the real-life mother of Axl Heck, eldest son on the ABC hit comedy, The Middle.
Barb’s journey that would lead to the SHIFT Formula™ started when daughter Erin was diagnosed (Type 1) at age 16. Despite following doctors’ orders and the general protocol for healthy living…..exercise, balanced organic foods diet….her daughter was, like many of her health club members, progressively slipping away…steady weight gain, steady health decline. Only a mother can understand the pain and suffering of a child crumbling under the weight of a lifetime, life-impacting disease. Which is why Barb took matters into her own hands and founded the SHIFT Formula™.
