Do you want to listen to me and three other participants discuss the highs and lows of the recent Paleo f(x) conference? Check out the latest episode of the LLVLC podcast:
What did we end up discussing? Take a deep breath and then read what may be the longest sentence in the history of mankind:
From the Livin’ la Vida Low-Carb Blog
Listen in as Andreas, Emily, Erynn and I talk about Andreas’ experience attending Paleo f(x) for the first time, how Emily appreciated seeing the variety of products available for Paleo consumers, the observation by Erynn about how big Paleo f(x) has gotten and how the scientific presentations have become more scholarly, Andreas’ concerns about the products that were featured at the event, why the Paleo community should look out for these inferior products lest people don’t improve their health, the skin product vendors who were doing things the right way with real food, natural ingredients, how the mainstream Paleo movement seems to be trying to move away from the low-carb message now, Paleo could be a force for good in people with obesity and diabetes if they supported low-carb, why Andreas thought the “why ketogenic diets are dangerous” lecture by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne was the best talk at the conference but a bit “over the top,” why a ketogenic diet should be used strategically for the right client or patient within a Paleo template, why it’s so surprising that there is such friction between the Paleo and low-carb community, why you don’t really attend Paleo f(x) necessarily to hear all the talks (because you can’t), the most memorable talks and experiences from this year’s conference, how the video presentations will be online later, the diamond in the rough talks that were surprising, the varying levels of talks available at the conference, why low-carbers need to “just go” and see what Paleo f(x) is all about, many of the attendees are actually quite low-carb in their nutritional approach, how the Paleo and low-carb communities could learn a lot from each other and remove the barriers working together, the enthusiasm of so many new people coming into Paleo, and how the low-carb community can leave their own footprint on Paleo.
