Here’s a report from the Low-Carb Cruise from the always funny Tom “Fat Head” Naughton:
Now we’re about to set sail on this year’s Low-Carb Cruise in the Carribbean. Ports include Belize, Isla Roatan (Honduras) and Cozumel. There’s plenty of cool speakers lined up, like Robb Wolf, Dr Jay Wortman and Jonathan Bailor. Should be fun!
Hopefully I’ll get the internet to work on the ship, otherwise you’ll hear from me in a week.
The obesity conference in San Diego is over. Highlights included plenty of interesting lectures, dinners with Jimmy Moore (thinner than ever after a year of measuring his ketone levels) and Dr Jeffry Gerber, drinks and NuSI-talk with Gary Taubes (exciting news coming up) and discussions with the insanely impressive Dr Peter Attia (who recently recieved a standing ovation at TEDMED – video to be posted). And one more thing… surfing in the Pacific Ocean with ASBP president-elect Dr Eric Westman.
In less than one week it’s time for this year’s low-carb cruise in the Carribean, so it was hardly worth flying home to Sweden before that. To spend the time in between I checked into a small hotel on Pacific Beach, San Diego, where I’m writing this (by the arrow above). Life’s not too bad.
I’m just about to board the flight to the ASBP obesity conference in San Diego. After that it’s time for the annual low carb cruise in the West Indies. Reports are coming up!
Can ketone measurement help you lose weight and improve performance? That’s the main question I’ll be trying to answer with my four-week experiment.
See Report #1 for diet and experiment design.
Note: This experiment was done six months ago and initially only reported on my Swedish blog. This is a somewhat delayed translation!
Below are graphs of my weight and waistline over this first four-week period, as well as the results of blood and urine ketone measurements.
After two to three weeks of light nutritional ketosis, I’ve now spent 8 days in “optimal ketosis” – that is, between 1.5 – 3 mmol/L. Want to know what’s happened?
Do you want to attend this years’ biggest conference about Paleo diets and health? Ancestral Health Symposium 2013 will be held in Atlanta, GA from August 15th through August 17th. Tickets usually run out quickly (last year it took just two days) so register right away if you want to be there. I did:
I was one of the presenters 2011 and 2012, but this year I decided not to apply. Instead I’m going to enjoy listening to as many interesting presentations as possible (program).
Do you want to be there?
Here’s a list of the “top 100 weight loss blogs to follow”. I like Authority Nutrition at #18. I don’t consider this blog to be a weight loss blog, but it’s at #11:
Apparently there’s no links, so if you want to check out the blogs you have to type in the adress yourself. Consider yourself warned.
Fantastic. More and more people are being told about this site. The number of visitors are just exploding, blasting past 20,000 visits per day like nothing*.
As always, a big thanks to everybody telling their friends and family. Together we’ll help more and more people in need of the truth behind all the diet-and-health misinformation. We’ll help more and more people regain their health.
This site also reached 10,000 likes on Facebook yesterday. Welcome all!
*/ One reason for the recent dramatic increase could be the start of daily updates instead of a few times a week. I’ll try to keep it up as long as there are important and interesting things to write about (which should be forever).

This is cool. Here’s a list of 40 experts that are “changing the fitness industry” – and I’m one of them. It gets even better, on the same list are three of the most impressive people I know: Mark Sisson, Gary Taubes and Peter Attia.
As far as I’m aware the list isn’t only about having game-changing six packs. It just seems like it at the top of the list.
