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.

    I think it is a pity that they going to charge for the videos. The one thing that has always stood out about LCHF was that the people know the LCHF message is the truth and as such shared the info freely. We've been sharing it freely to get the message out as quickly as possible.

    Personally I feel that they charged more that enough for the conference to cover the cost for the camera men. The extreme cost of the conference is why I didn't attend ( I am a South African, maybe with the rand/dollar exchange it wasn't so expensive for you all)

    Another point is that I think it is the delegates messages that inspired the people, how can the organizers of convention take your work and your speech and charge money for it. I think the lectures have the final say and copyright on their own work.

    How much did it cost for attendance?

    It's not unusual for these types of conferences to keep the copyright, although you'd have to look to see what the contracts between presenters and organizations were, and you'd have to know South African copyright law (which I do not). It is too bad they did not provide this for free or at least a nominal cost. Low carb needs all the help it can get. The US is refreshing its eating guidelines and are preparing to remove "lean meats" from the list of "approved" foods. Already, my daughter cannot get full fat milk in her school, but can get highly sugared, non-fat chocolate milk. Does that make sense to anyone? Will she now no longer be able to get meat at school? That's ridiculous. We need to advocate low carb or at least a reversal on saturated fat, and requiring people to pay to see information about low carb isn't a great idea.

    With so much positive news I'm looking forward to reading and seeing more but this sounds brilliant

    Thanks for all the info you've been able to share so far ..... appreciated.

    All the best Jan

    Will you please let us know when the videos are posted? I am greatly interested in seeing them.

    As for them charging for the videos...they have every right to charge for the videos. It will take time and money (as mentioned above) to edit them and make them ready for us to watch, and any money made above the cost of the recording and editing of the videos will go toward paying for the next conference. It looks like this is not put together to "Make money" but rather to spread the word, and it takes Lots of Money to put something like this together.

    I agree with CCinVegas. I'm very happy to add my two cents or whatever I can afford to help educate people about LCHF, because it has literally saved me from going blind or worse.

    Speaking of the LCHF message "moving faster than ever". Here is an article that promotes dietary changes to help with mental illness: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/24/diet-mental-health_n_6566376...

    I met Tim way back in 1976 when he was was doing tests on body fat.... Yes, I am a banter today, yes I have had fantastic results loosing 28kg over 6 months, yes Tim needs money for research, We all know pharmaceutical companies to cream it, but put your money where your mouth is!

    Do you ever get paid when you work? If you do, why shouldn't other people be paid for their work?

    The five-six video professionals who are producing this extensive video material – using extremely expensive cameras and other equipment – both deserve and need to get paid for the work they do.

    Some people are happy with low quality video of lectures with poor sound and no slides. If so they can find any number of such recordings for free already by going to YouTube and searching for "LCHF" or "low carb". There is no shortage of them.

    This is going to be twenty hours plus of excellent-quality video recordings. I'm super impressed by the people involved. It's going to be way better than what's typically found for free. And the price will be a relative bargain. And the people who produce it are going to get a fair wage for their work. And any surplus helps fund future conferences.

    Personally I think it's a great way to do it.

    I think that these videos should be free for everyone after the initial costs are covered.

    Maybe Coke or Pepsi could sponsor the videos. :-)

    You have to compensate for risk-taking. The people working on this have no guarantee of making anything. So the time and resources they stake should potentially generate a multiple of earnings, to compensate for the risk of them losing money. You cannot equate someone getting a guaranteed wage for a task with someone who works on speculation that they will not get paid anything (despite the market value of their specialized skills) and lose money they already have. They will obviously have to price the videos reasonably to generate sales. I expect the price will be reasonable.

    Andreas it was an honnor to met you. Hopefully we see us in London already this year :)

    I can't wait to see these videos, and will be happy to pay a fee. Thanks for making us aware that they will be available and when.

    How about not getting fixated on cost and instead get excited about the content? If you pay for it, you will listen and take note. So let's hope its ready soon and that this marks the beginning of a real surge in understanding for real food and a healthier future for all of us.

    Since August 2014 I have watched an incredible amount of YouTube and online videos on LCHF, Paleo, Insulin Resistance and more. At the end of the day, knowledge is power and motivation. Im 72. I have invested financially in consulting with a Keyo Diet professional, a Keto Fiet App, Low Carb High Fats pantry, Glucose and ketosis monitors, and (and it's a big one) driven my friends insane with the whole concept. I live LowCarb High Fat and minimal protein 24/7. Unfortunately I have seen minimal results on our bathroom scales, although some clothes do fit more comfortably (and with all the advice and strict monitoring of food that's weight loss still not happening). Health benefits are obvious with perscription medications down to two a day. For me, investing in knowledge is like investing in an education. I wish it converted to less kgs. In some cases the videos I watch are way too generalized in content or more technical than I have skills to interpret. If I am going to purchase conference material then I need to have an assurance they have the focus I need.
