THE GREATEST GATHERING OF INTERNATIONAL LCHF EXPERTS UNDER ONE ROOF. A WORLD FIRST.
The world is facing a tsunami of lifestyle-related chronic diseases that will cost our global economy $47 trillion over the next twenty years. These diseases are eminently preventable and treatable, and yet currently, every year, they kill twice as many people around the world as infectious diseases do.
According to the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), in America, more than 1/3 of adults are obese as are approximately 12.5 million children. In South Africa our nation’s battle with the bulge is fast becoming a health epidemic. A survey by global healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline earlier this year confirmed that at least 60% or nearly two out of every three South Africans are overweight, obese or morbidly obese.
Prof Tim Noakes’s book, The Real Meal Revolution, has taken South Africa by storm. It has remained at the top of the South African bestsellers list and has just been announced as the winner of the 2014 Nielsen Booksellers Choice Award at the annual Sefika Awards.
Media frenzy has erupted and the ‘Banting diet’ as it has become known is spreading like wild fire yet many medical professionals are claiming it to be dangerous and downright irresponsible to our health and wellbeing.
What cannot be denied though is that clearly, what we have been taught is not working. We need a different paradigm. We need a different model. We need a SOLUTION.
Now finally you will get a chance to hear from some of the world’s foremost experts in this field as Prof Tim Noakes and Karen Thomson, founder of The Sugar Free Revolution Online Program, host The First International Low Carb, High Fat Health Summit with internationally acclaimed doctors and researchers, right here in Cape Town in South Africa from 20-22 February 2015.
