Have you ever wondered what actually happens to your body when you “hit the wall” during a long sporting event? Have you just started eating low carb, and cannot figure out why you feel so tired, headachy and irritable? Trying to lose weight but nothing is happening? Keep reading for the answers to these questions and more.
Reviewing my conference notes to write this post, I am once again amazed at the valuable information that the speakers shared with us. I was honestly so privileged to have attended. In this post I will share some more of the key points made. My hope is that you will find it as helpful as I did. Let the seeds be sowed, and when you are ready, give them water so they can flourish into something amazing that can change your life, your relationship with food and your health.

The first ever international LCHF conference was held at the Cape Town Convention Centre last weekend. The line-up of speakers was seriously impressive and the organisation of the event was brilliant (thank you Karen Thompson and Prof. Tim Noakes). It was a privilege to attend the 4 days, and absorb all the knowledge these thought-leaders had to share with us. Each lecture approached the topic from a different angle, which made it all the more interesting to see how our diets affect so many different aspects of our life and health. Thanks must also go to Old Mutual for their support in providing the platform for information sharing and learning. Read the rest of this entry
