The current one-size-fits-all governmental nutrition guidelines and conventional treatment for obesity have resulted in a misguided premise that to lose weight one must simply “eat less and move more." The diabesity epidemic has arisen in the wake of that misguidance.

Physicians play a paramount role in educating our population using science proven to achieve healthy weights and prevent and reverse many of the diseases of modernity.

Conference presentations will cover topics including:

  • Why caloric quality matters: the evidence behind low carbohydrate lifestyles to treat modern diseases such as type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, specific cancers, and more
  • Carbohydrate restriction to improve glycemic control and reduce medication use in type 1 diabetes
  • The benefits of a keto-adapted physiologic state on human performance, epigenetic drivers of oxidative stress, hunger, weight management, potentially longevity, and more
  • The metabolic toxicity of sugar
