We’re just back from this year’s Low-Carb Cruise – and now there’s a date set for next year’s cruise. We’ll sail on the huge Allure of the Seas on May 1st, 2016, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Destinations during the 7-day cruise include Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico. All the details on the cruise ship here.
This is a massive ship with over 5,000 guests – obviously not just low-carbers. We’re likely to be a few hundred people and there’ll be all kinds of food available.
We’ve passed 10,000 members. This means we have incredible support to keep growing our organization (now six employees and several freelancers). We’ll be able to keep doing more and more to help people revolutionize their health. To do all we can to supply the knowledge, inspiration and truth needed to slow and then reverse the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and related diseases.
The winner of our contest – member number 10,000 – now has an e-mail waiting for her (yes, her).
No e-mail in your inbox? That’s ok, there is still a chance to win our biggest prize package ever, as we are giving out two of them.
The second winner will be randomly selected from all members on Tuesday June 2. Sign up for a free trial month here if you want to participate. This also gives you immediate access to all our video courses, expert interviews, movies, the ability to have your question answered by experts etc.
This week most of the Diet Doctor organisation (11 people) are on the Low-Carb Cruise. We’ve been working hard recording lots of lectures and interviews. You’ll be able to see them here as soon as they are edited.
Here’s some brief reports from our co-worker Tommy Runesson:
This is great. Two of my favorite people in the world: Dr Robert Lustig and Stephen Colbert. Here we get to see them both at the same time, if only for five minutes.
Are you a Lord of the Rings nerd like me? That’s probably necessary to enjoy this.
The planned documentary In Defense of Fat is trying to get financed via Kickstarter. Unfortunately the first attempt – for 50 000 dollars – failed. That means that if you backed the earlier project that pledge was cancelled.
Now a new attempt at financing (30 000 dollars) is closing in on the finish line. And this time it looks more hopeful. With 59 hours to go they have promises of more than 23 000 dollars.
If you help out with 25 dollars you get to see the movie streamed when it’s done. 50 dollars gets you a DVD with extra material (this is what I chose). There are also signed books by among others Mark Sisson and Denise Minger to be had. Let’s get this movie made:
Kickstart In Defense of Fat
Are you in?
PS: If you backed the previous cancelled attempt you need to pledge again to join.
This is great. I don’t care much for Fox News, but their viewers deserve their health too. Right?
Popular host Bill O’Reilly just talked about how much healthier he feels since he stopped eating wheat. He also gave a huge endorsement to the book Wheat Belly by my good friend dr William Davis.
If you’re interested I have a great video interview with dr Davis coming up soon. If you can’t wait, get the book. It’s good.
This might be seen as off-topic. But it isn’t really. To change the world you mainly need good ideas and hard work. But it also helps to have the right kind of tools.
All Apple fans have probably seen this by now. The new MacBook Pro with an insane 2880 x 1800 pixel Retina display. Faster and thinner than ever and with enormous amounts of flash storage instead of a hard drive. Perfect for editing HD video while traveling.
I couldn’t help myself, I just ordered one. Are you jealous?
I used to play poker online a few years back. Playing good poker demands total concentration and quite a bit of knowledge. You need to be a lot sharper than the average opponent.
Some people still claim that the brain needs a lot of carbs every day, otherwise it will shut down (funny, I know). They also think that low carb diets make people depressed, tired, sleepy and slows the thought processes. Some even believe diets high in fat shrink the brain!
According to these wild (and mostly disproven) ideas it should be impossible to have an intellectual career on low carb. For example playing poker professionally.
This turns out to be false. I was contacted by a successful poker pro who’ve been eating LCHF for a while. His experience is the opposite of what some think. He experiences increased mental performance, especially by being able to focus for a long time.
When I linked to this on my Swedish blog some commentors noted that LCHF diets were actually pretty popular in people discussing poker online. For the same reason: More durable mental focus.
