Tom Naughton
Official Roast Master for The Low-Carb Cruise


He is best-known in the low-carb community as the writer/director of the 2009 comedy-documentary FAT HEAD which gave the message of low-carb living a much-needed comedic shot in the arm.

We've got a special treat for the cruisers in 2012 when Tom Naughton will do a special roasting of the guest speakers on The 5th Annual Low-Carb Cruise. YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!

Is anyone going by themselves? My husband isn't into low carb or the speakers, and I'd hate to pay the extra money for him to go when he's not going to be involved.

zizi 06-23-2011 12:46 AM

houndho 06-23-2011 06:06 AM

Also google "low carb cruise board" - a message board for it.

dawnyama 06-23-2011 06:58 PM

OMG!! This sounds so exciting. And to get to meet all these people is beyond great. I just wish I lived closer to TX LOL. I would be going in a heartbeat if I could. LowCarbWannabe--I don't know if my Dh would even be interested either. He loves my low carb cooking and supports me, but to be THAT involved. He would probably not get as excited as me LOL. I would be giddy with excitement at everything going on and the whos that are there and he would probably be bored to tears. Oh, and to be able to meet so many low carb friends-----too fantastic!!! Fawn, Chantyl........wish I could go.

Oh, and I have to add this....when I first came across this thread I thought it said "sneakers" not speakers LOL. I really need to take out my contacts they are quite cloudy!!! gave me a chuckle tonight!!

Hey Dawn!!! Long time hun!

BF is coming with me, but probably won't be going to as many (if any) of the little workshops. He eats what i cook but also eats what he buys. He's supportive but its not his thing! LOL. He's going for the cruising!

I was super excited it was leaving out of tx this yr! we're going to drive to houston and have my sister drive up to galveston! can't wait!

I'm really looking forward the excursions....SCUBA, ATV tour, Snorkeling, Shopping...OMG! I'm getting carried away... LOL :up:

That is good to know that not everyone goes with someone. If I ever go, I imagine it will be alone and I have no doubt it will be a blast!!!!!

Just as a side FYI....for those of you thinking of going with non lowcarbers...
I have not been on one of these cruises, but have listened to Jimmy Moore's podcasts and low carb conversations. From those, I know that the cruise is not all low carbers. This is just a normal Carnival cruise, with a low carb group onboard. The ship holds several thousand people, and there will be (probably) several hundred low carb guests. The Carnival line will have their regular menu, but will gladly accomdate low carb requests, and may add a few special things in for the low carbers. Steak and chicken are always on cruise menus. I have been on about a dozen cruises, and all that I have been on have a section for those choosing a weight loss menu. That doesn't always fit in with low carb, but often it does. All of the above in consideration, your non lowcarbers will be right at home....and you low carbers will have a blast!!

yep:cool:

There will be plenty for the non low carber to do as well as your shore excursions.

LisaG 06-26-2011 05:08 PM

A cruise is SUCH a great deal in traveling- so much fun and entertainment, great food, casino, dancing, pools, you name it. And I don't even know where this cruise is going! But personally I could float around at sea all day and be happy. :)
ENJOY everyone!!! Great line up!
