Keeping the Fat High on the Low-Carb Cruise

I had the wonderful opportunity to speak last week on the Low Carb Cruise sponsored by Jimmy Moore's Livin La Vida Low Carb on the Freedom of the Seas (Royal Carribean).
What an experience!  I was able to take my family with me for some long-anticipated family time as well.
I spoke with some of the most well respected physicians, authors and dietitians specializing in low-carbohydrate, Paleo, and ketogenic dieting in the world.
Among the wonderful presentations, the underlying theme seemed to be that most people are not taking in enough saturated fat. The research is pointing to the fact that increasing your total fat intake to 60-80% of your daily caloric intake seems to be most effective for weight loss and overall cardiovascular health (while limiting your carbohydrate intake - OF COURSE!)
A few of the Ketogenic Nutritional Experts:
Christine Cronau, Maria Emmerich, Franziska Spitzler
Franziska Spitzler, Dr. Eric Westman, Emily Maguire
We heard from the likes of Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton, Dr. Jeffry Gerber,  Jackie Eberstein, Jimmy Moore, Christine Cronau, Wendy Myers, Dr. George Diggs/Dr. Kerry Brock, Dr. Phillip Blair, Dr. Michael Fox, Franziska Spritzler, Tommy Runesson, Maria Emmerich, Dana Carpender, Rocky Angelucci, Emily Maguire, Diane Sanfilippo, and fitness expert Fred Hahn. Overall, it was a fantastic course and a wonderful trip.
Hats off to Jimmy Moore and his very talented group of planners that put this program together. Thank you!!

Really enjoyed meeting you on the cruise, Adam!

Your very-low-carb/keto approach, ability to provide valuable information in an easy-to-understand way, and highly personable nature really resonated with everyone at our conference. We just loved your presentation! I heard several people say, "His patients are lucky to have him as their doctor," and I couldn't agree more!

Thanks so much for including the photos of myself and other presenters on your blog. Hope to see you again very soon!

Kind regards,

Franziska Spritzler
