Really Amazing Speakers (LC CRUISE 2012)

I just realized that there are a TON of really amazing speakers for this yr's lc cruise. I didn't get to go last yr, but we paid our deposit yesterday to go on 2012's cruise.

Anyone else going?

Speakers List:

Jimmy Moore

Dr. Volek’s primary area of research is focused on physiological adaptations to low carbohydrate diets with emphasis on outcomes related to metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. He primarily uses prospective diet and/or exercise interventions and uses sophisticated cellular techniques to understand changes in adiposity, fatty acid and lipoprotein metabolism, inflammation, vascular function, and endocrine adaptations. Dr. Volek also has interests in sports nutrition including studies evaluating a wide range of dietary supplements such as creatine and carnitine. He has received several million dollars in extramural funding from a variety of corporate and foundation sources. He has served as major or associate advisor of over a dozen doctoral students.

Dr. Volek is co-author of Men's Health TNT Diet, The New Atkins For A New You with fellow low-carb researchers Dr. Eric Westman and Dr. Stephen Phinney, and the brand new 2011 release of The Art And Science Of Low Carbohydrate Living also co-written with Dr. Phinney.

Monique Forslund
Author: LifeZone Blog

Monique Forslund grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and has gone through a big change in her life thanks to low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) eating. She transformed her body from a size XXL to small and today she is fit, healthy, full of energy and life is good for her. Monique has not touched bread, flour, rice, potatoes, sugars, sweets, juice, sodas, corn, peas or anything else that is high in carbs and says she has never eaten this well in her entire life.

She is the mother of three beautiful children and lives in Karlstad, Sweden where LCHF is exploding in popularity. Monique has become a passionate champion for promoting healthy eating principles to children and parents alike. She is a certified health coach and Zumba fitness instructor (you'll HAVE to do a Zumba class with Monique on the 2012 Low-Carb Cruise) which she demonstrated on the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise. Learn more about Monique's work at her English blog called "LifeZone" at Lifezone - LCHF hälsa & Zumba Karlstad.

Listen to Monique speak in Episode 12 of "Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends."

Dr. John Briffa
Author: Waist Disposal

One of the most prominent voices in support for low-carb nutrition in the UK is naturally-oriented physician, author, podcaster and speaker Dr. John Briffa. His work is dedicated to providing honest and trustworthy holistic health advice that can be used to combat and prevent illness, overcome everyday ailments, enhance energy and bring a greater sense of wellbeing. Dr. Briffa mixes a healthy dose of scientific research along with 20 years of clinical experience and plenty of common sense.

Dr. Briffa is a former columnist for the Daily Mail and the Observer, and is a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines. He is a former recipient of the Health Journalist of the Year award in the UK. He is the author of several books that will give you a more in-depth idea of how to improve your overall health and wellbeing, including Waist Disposal: the Ultimate Fat Loss Manual for Men (rumor has it that he's working on a version of this book for women which he will likely discuss during his lecture of The Low-Carb Cruise in 2012). He recently started his own "A Good Look At Good Health" podcast sharing nutritional truth about healthy low-carb living.


Denise Minger
Author: Raw Food SOS Blog

One of the rising stars in the health blogosphere over the past few years is an adorable young 20-something named Denise Minger from the "Raw Food SOS" blog. She works as a health and fitness writer, tutor, teacher, editor, proofreader, resume writer, and various other freelance occupations but made quite the name for herself in the low-carb/Paleo community in 2010 when she wrote a series of hard-hitting critiques of T. Colin Campbell's much-heralded The China Study book that promotes veganism as a healthy lifestyle.


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 showed the film on The Low-Carb Cruise in 2010 and Tom's "Science For Smart People" lecture on the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise was the overwhelming hit! 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! Learn more about Tom's work at Fat Head - Blog site for the comedy-documentary Fat Head.

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.

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!

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!!

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!

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!!

I agree- I've never had trouble, ever. Lots of SF desserts too. I've always just eaten MORE than usual, ha ha.
