In February 2015, 16 of the world’s most distinguished health experts gathered together in Cape Town to share and discuss the staggering evidence for the health benefits of a Low-Carb High-Fat (LCHF) lifestyle.
This historical forum was filmed by The Real Meal Revolution and in partnership with Karen Thomson (founder of the Sugar Free Revolution), and Professor Tim Noakes (emeritus professor, co-author of The Real Meal Revolution, founder of the The Noakes Foundation and scientist), the full Convention is now available online at www.lchfconvention.com. The online LCHF Convention is intended to act as an essential resource for the health profession to fully understand LCHF and, hopefully, a vital tool in the fight against global obesity and diabetes.
The Speakers included the likes of Gary Taubes (American science writer and author of Good Calories, Bad Calories), Dr Stephen Phinny (physician-scientist, author and co-author of the recently released: The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable), Dr Eric Westman (associate professor of medicine at Duke University Health System and director of the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic) and Dr Ann Childers (a child and adult trained psychiatric physician), amongst others.
Topics tackled the science behind the lifestyle and what does and doesn’t work for optimal nutrition. The speakers also addressed many of the myths and half-truths circulating about what it means to lead a LCHF lifestyle. Some of the topics and speakers include:
"The low fat diet is probably the worst mistake we’ve ever made in the history of human medicine. The mainstream dietary advice that we are currently giving to the world has simply not worked. It’s time to talk about how we can make a real change.” Professor Tim Noakes
According to the World Health Organisation, worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980 and in 2014 there were more than 1.9 billion overweight adults, of which 600 million were considered obese. What is probably more staggering is that 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013. Obesity is an epidemic, and the LCHF Convention was a major step in the right direction, to begin reducing these alarming figures.
“By providing the content online in an accessible and easy to use format, the real education and transformation can begin. If there have ever been any questions about the scientific reasoning behind LCHF eating, this online resource will provide the answers.,” says Proudfoot.
The full 24 lecture hours are included in the package along with fully transcribed lecture notes and a host of reference material, making this the single biggest resource for low-carb nutrition in the world
“This is the first time in history anyone will have access to every shred of evidence supporting the low-carb high-fat lifestyle – in one place. It is a brilliant resource for enthusiasts and medical practitioners alike and we are incredibly proud of it,” adds Proudfoot.
The cost for lifetime access to the LCHF online convention is $69, but as a launch promotion, The Real Meal Revolution is offering the entire package at $49. You can gain access to a preview of the content and find out about the speakers and topics on www.lchfconvention.com.
