overview FLL

Last month we we spent a week on the fantastic low-carb cruise in the Caribbean.
We invited our moderators to write guest posts here at the blog. Here’s the last report, by Marina Yudanov, with our final reflections:

Guest Post by Marina Yudanov

Team DietDoctor Caribbean Reflections

I enjoyed myself immensely on my first low-carb cruise this year. I would recommend it to anyone at least slightly familiar with LCHF, who has experienced the positive effects or done some reading on the subject. The speakers covered a diverse range of low-carb, high-fat-related topics and the talks ranged from personal accounts of LCHF life to technical talks on the biochemistry of the body and how it responds to diet. Listening to the presentations and talking to people was a great way to validate the things I’ve read, tried and internalized as truths. It was also a great eye-opener for new things LCHF-related that I hadn’t come across of my own accord before.

The World’s Top LCHF Conference is Finally Online!

A few months ago the world’s top LCHF experts gathered in lovely Cape Town, South Africa, for a massive four day conference. I was there presenting as well. It truly felt like a historic gathering.

Unfortunately not everyone can go to Cape Town, even for an occasion like this. Over 600 people participated, but most of the people around the world who would have wanted to be there sadly missed it.

Now it’s possible to watch all the 30 presentations online, as the online LCHF Convention launched today.

You can check out previews from the presentations for free. The entire online convention is $69 but the presenters – including me – get to invite people for only $49, so following this link you get that significant discount:

The Low Carb High Fat Convention Online

As an added bonus you also get access to transcripts of all the presentations and handy direct links for any studies and articles discussed.

I highly recommend the online LCHF convention, it’s a convenient recording of an historic event.

Regarding the Cost

Note that we get no part of the price of the conference – even if you follow the discounted link above. We never do affiliate marketing here at Diet Doctor for credibility reasons.

The full price of the online conference goes to the organizers (they are well worth it!) and will hopefully cover the significant cost of filming, editing and transcribing four days of presentations. Any surplus will help the organizers set up new LCHF conferences. The next ones are preliminarily planned for London and Washington!


Interviews with Experts and Kids(!) from the Low-Carb Cruise

What did the participating experts – and their kids – think about the recent Low-Carb Cruise in the Caribbean? Watch the short video above to find out!

The Full Interviews

If you want to not just watch the highlights but get to watch the full eight interviews, it’s available at the membership site (free trial one month).

10 interviews from Paleo f(x)Eight short interviews from the Low-Carb Cruise

In addition to these we did eleven (!) longer and higher-quality sit-down interviews at the cruise, and lots of presentations. These are coming up as soon as they are edited.


If you find the low-carb kids adorable and want more I recommend the “Fat Head Kids Club” videos on YouTube.


Great Interviews Coming Up


We’ve been keeping busy during Paleo f(x) interviewing people. We’ve got short video interviews with Paleo people like Mark Sisson, Chris Kresser and all the usual suspects.

We’ve also got longer sit-down interviews with the fantastic Dr. Terry Wahls (pictured above) and NYT bestselling author Nina Teicholz (The Big Fat Surprise).

These two interviews are not just full of exciting ideas and stories, they also look really great. Carrying an extra bag full of video lights halfway across the world makes all the difference.

So who will get to see these interviews? Continue Reading →


Video From the Paleo f(x) Conference

We’re in Austin, Texas, attending the big Paleo f(x) conference. Here’s a quick video to take you onsite and show what it’s like. Feel free to share.

As soon as possible we’ll upload some brief interviews with speakers and participants. We’re also doing a few really high-quality longer interviews with the most interesting people we can find. These will be online as soon as we finish editing them.

Going to Paleo f(x) This Weekend – Suggestions Welcome!

This weekend I’ll be in Austin, Texas for the largest Paleo conference in the world: Paleo f(x). I’ve been to the “other” Paleo conference, AHS, three times – but this is my first time at Paleo f(x).

Of course there’ll be some reports here on the blog and Simon Victor – in charge of our video productions – will be in Austin as well. Perhaps we’ll do some similar video reports like the 1 minute and the 5 minute video reports from the LCHF conference in Cape Town.

We’re also planning an in-depth video interview with Nina Teicholz, NYT bestselling author of the great book The Big Fat Surprise. Do you have any questions you’d like us to ask Teicholz? Leave them in the comments below.

Do you have any suggestions who else we should definitely interview for the blog? Here’s the full list of speakers. Feel free to leave your suggestion in the comments. And what else should we definitely not miss in Austin?

Finally, are you going to be in Austin and do you want to meet up for some reason? Perhaps you have an inspiring story to share? E-mail me at
