The End of the LCHF Conference – Brief Video

Here’s a short video from the end of the LCHF conference. The two people onstage are the great professor Tim Noakes and Karen Thomson, the granddaughter of the world famous heart surgeon Christiaan Barnard.

Tim Noakes might be the scientific brains behind the LCHF movement in South Africa, but Karen has supplied the energy to make this conference a reality against all the odds. She truly deserves a standing ovation.

An Amazing LCHF Conference

Standing ovations from 600+ participants at the end of the conference

Standing ovations from 600+ participants at the end of the conference

Now the LCHF conference is over and the final activities for the speakers are also over. It’s about time to leave for the airport.

It’s been a few amazing, insightful and highly inspirational days with several of the most impressive people I’ve met (including two great people I met for the first time – Dr Aseem Malhotra and Dr Jason Fung).

The *only* thing that could have been better is the opportunities to connect to fast internet and blog effectively. Sorry about the lack of updates, there’ll be a lot more coming as soon as I’m back home again.

We’ve recorded five longer video interviews in high quality (using four cameras) with the most exciting experts that were here. You’ll be able to see these interviews here on the blog as soon as they are ready. We’ve also recorded around 20 super short interviews with participants onsite. They’ll also be online here as soon as possible.

Online Conference and London 2015 (!)

ALL the superb talks of the four days of the conference were recorded in high quality by the organizers. Pending approval by the speakers they’ll be online soon for anyone to see, at a cost that’s a tiny fraction of being here live. A total bargain if you ask me, because even though I’ve done this for years I learned a lot by being here.

The cost of the online summit will help pay for the professional video production crew (6 people onsite!) and an insane amount of editing (it will likely take 5 people working full time for one month). Any surplus will help fund the next conference.

One more piece of good news: The upcoming LCHF conference in London in 2016 that was discussed earlier may be coming as early as in September this year. That’s the latest plans. The Food Revolution is spreading across the world and it’s moving faster than ever.

The LCHF Conference Could Come to London and Washington D.C.

There is no doubt that the LCHF conference in Cape Town has been a massive success. And this may just be the beginning. There are plans to take the conference to London in 2016 and to Washington D.C. in 2017!

Let’s hope that happens. Once there are dates ready you’ll be able to read about it here.


The Greatest Gathering of Low-Carb Experts Ever?

What a gathering. The picture is from the night before the start of the LCHF conference in South Africa. Among many other low-carb experts you can see professor Tim Noakes, Dr Aseem Malhotra, Dr Eric Westman, Dr Jeffrey Gerber, Dr Michael Eades, Dr Mary Eades, Dr Jay Wortman and professor Stephen Phinney. And Zoë Harcombe who wrote the article about saturated fat that made headlines around the world last week. The next day Gary Taubes turned up as well.

Likely there has never been a greater gathering of LCHF experts in the same place before.

I’m happy to be here. You probably understand the lack of updates recently on the blog. I’ll be back soon with new energy and new insights.


Heading to Cape Town and the World’s Largest LCHF Conference

Cape Town

Now we’re heading for Cape Town and the world’s largest LCHF conference, that begins Thursday. It’s going to be a long flight for me and Simon Victor who’s in charge of our upcoming video reporting.

At the conference most of the world’s foremost experts on LCHF diets, weight and health are gathered. Here’s the entire list. Who would you most like to see an interview with, and about what?

Are you on a low-carb diet and interested in health? Do you like the sun, warm weather, adventures and a chance to find new friends for life?

Here’s your chance. Finally, all the pieces are in place for this year’s big low-carb cruise. In the week of May 24th–31st, the eighth annual Low-Carb Cruise to the Caribbean will take place.

Unfortunately, last year I had to stay home, but this time we’re making up for it. Eleven members from Team Diet Doctor will be joining. Yes, you may have a good time while trying to save the world. We’ll be recording lots of videos, gathering knowledge and networking with our American friends more than ever. Feel free to join us.

This will be my fifth time, and it’s one of the highlights of the year.

The cruise will sail from Ft Lauderdale, Florida, and last a week. We’ll make port in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten & Basseterre, St. Kitts according to the cruise route outlined on the map to the right.


The week offers lectures on health, weight and low-carbohydrate diets with this bunch:

More on the Biggest LCHF Conference Ever

Here’s a new promo video for the biggest conference ever on LCHF diets, happening in Cape Town in two weeks. Just about every major expert on the subject will be there. The late additions include Gary Taubes.

More about why you too deserve a trip to summer-warm Cape Town: World’s Biggest LCHF Health Summit Coming Up!


I’m going to be in Cape Town too, giving two talks. Our video expert Simon Victor will also be there. We’re going to bring lots of video equipment and set up a studio for interviewing some of the experts.

Are you going to be in Cape Town too? Do you have a success story you’d like to share? Please e-mail me at


World’s Biggest LCHF Health Summit Coming!


This is going to be exciting. Late next month (20-22 February), the world’s biggest summit on LCHF diets and health will take place.

The meeting is in Cape Town, South Africa where such food has become extremely popular in recent years. This after the legendary professor of exercise and sports medicine Tim Noakes attracted much attention in the country with his complete about-face in recommending such food – not only for weight loss and diabetes but also for many endurance athletes.

The gathering of the world’s foremost experts on low-carbohydrate diets is perhaps the biggest ever (with competition only in recent years with ASBP/NMS meetings in the US). I’m in it too:


Do you want to combine a holiday from winter in summer-warm and wonderful Cape Town with learning more about health and weight? Then this conference is for you.

The first two days are primarily directed towards professional health workers – such as physicians, researchers, nurses – while the last day is clearly directed at the public. This means that there will be more medical jargon during the first two days. If you’re fine with that you’re of course welcome during those days too.

Those who don’t want to go all the way to Cape Town will of course see plenty of reports from the summit here at Diet Doctor.
