The ship – Liberty of the Seas

Last week Team Diet Doctor was at the Low Carb Cruise in the Caribbean. We had a great time!

An especially-big thank you to all inspiring low carbers who participated. You have given us plenty of valuable insights on how to improve our work.

After a long trip from Stockholm, we arrived at the hotel in Houston and joined other participants at the pre-cruise dinner.

Pre-cruise dinner

The next day we went on board on Liberty of the Seas, the enormous ship where we would spend the following week. We unpacked our bags, explored the ship and got ready for the upcoming lecture days.

Dr. Eenfeldt on the obesity epidemic and low carb

Monday, Tuesday and Saturday were presentation days. The interesting speakers delved into different aspects of low carb and keto.

Should you be concerned about cholesterol? Is eating more protein a good idea? Is exercise necessary? Why is loving and accepting our bodies important? And what are the benefits of having elevated ketones really?

All these questions – and many more – were discussed by the knowledgeable lecturers. We filmed many of the presentations, and they will be available on our membership pages soon, together with videos from earlier conferences.

Food

It was easy to find low-carb food on the ship, given the endless food options. But there were also tremendous amounts of high-carb temptations. Had I been a sugar addict, I would probably have had a very hard time sticking to a keto diet…

Sugary foods at the buffet

I personally don’t fast, so I indulged in bacon and eggs every morning at the breakfast buffet. For lunch and dinner, I usually had a steak or some hamburger patties and vegetables.

The dinners were especially great, as we got to sit down and socialize with other low carbers.

A better lunch in Mexico (skipped the rice)

On the days when there were no lectures, we stopped at a few exotic locations like Roatan (Honduras), Costa Maya (Mexico) and Cozumel (Mexico). Amazing beaches and great company made the days fantastic, despite a few raindrops from tropical storm Alberto).
