Meet Carrie Lupoli

Carrie is the mom of two teenage girls, Grace and Ellie and has been married to Peter for 23 years.  Together they all try to wrangle their two pups, Cooper and Raleigh.

With her background as a world renowned behavioral specialist, award winning educator, nutritionist and mindset coach, Carrie has taken nutrition coaching to a whole new level.

While dealing with her own body image and weight issues, she overheard her daughters, at 5 and 6 years old, talking about how pizza had too many calories and she knew she needed to make significant changes or they would grow up with the same disordered eating habits that she did.

So, after taking a hold of her health, weight, and mindset with PFC3 more than a decade ago, she set out to teach the approach in a whole new way…so that women would not only stick with this transformational way of fueling their bodies, but also that they would do it because they love themselves, knowing that their value has nothing to do with that number on the scale.

Meet Mark Macdonald

Mark Macdonald is a husband to his wife Abbi and father to their son Hunter and daughter Hope. Professionally, he’s a world-renowned nutrition & fitness expert, NY Times best-selling author, media personality, international teacher and speaker, and entrepreneur who has helped everyone from celebrities to athletes to business executives to busy moms on how to permanently live their best health.

His life’s mission is to change how the world looks at food and empower people to ditch dieting and learn how to balance their blood sugar by eating PFC3, as well as partnering with passion filled health professionals aligned with the same purpose. 

Mark went back to his nutrition foundation and realized winning with your food and body isn’t about dieting or restriction but centered on balancing your blood sugar. He took this simple concept of eating PFC3 (eating a balance of protein, fats, and carbs every 3 hours) and in 1999 launched his first nutrition practice in Venice Beach, California. Mark and his wife Abbi have now helped lead global PFC3 movements in over 60 countries, 6 continents and in 30+ languages.

The next evolution of the PFC3 global movement is the incredible partnership with world renowned behavioral specialist and award-winning educator, Carrie Lupoli. Mark and Carrie have combined 50+ years of experience to create the first ever Formula for Food Freedom, with a full immersion into a robust Body-Mind-Lifestyle approach with a focus on 1% daily progress.

This new flagship program, 100 Days of 1%, combined with Mark & Carrie’s, #1 most watched daily Nutrition show “Food Freedom” on Brinx TV are focused on educating and meeting people where they are in their health journey and focusing on 1% daily progress.

Karen Lynne

We read labels, portion food and purposefully plan not to mention the extensive education brings awareness and sets us up for success. We have learned SO much. We have hope like no other health approach has provided. We never give up and shame ourselves to the point of throwing the towel in when we have a weak moment , we reset and look ahead 3 hours to regroup. Food freedom has freed us! The " diet" shackles have fallen off! Oh ! Did I mention my cholesterol #'s continue to drop!
