    Just finished the Dr. Winters talk. Lauren (mod) needs to calm down or grow up, one of the two. I know that sounds very harsh but I learned little, if anything, from the talk. Let's see if Lauren can contain herself while talking to David Diamond, here goes.

    ""Kick sugar" tends to raise my hackles.
    People think they can turn BG problems around by giving up sugar, and titles like this help perpetuate the myth.
    Having said that, I will now try to find the time to watch.:)

    Here's the link for Day 2 of the Kick Sugar Summit... https://go.kicksugarsummit.com/kss-2019-day-2-tues To register and receive the daily links, go here... https://kicksugarsummit.com/

    It's going to be a sleepless week. Lots of good interviews...

    For anyone who's dealing with cancer, Nasha Winters, ND is interviewed today. She's incredible. She's been living with her cancer for 25 years if I'm remembering correctly, still has cancer, and is not only alive, she's thriving. Going to listen to her interview first today.

    Uh oh, if that interview didn't go well, find Nasha Winters, ND on YouTube.com. She's has an understanding of cancer that few have.

    @LittleGreyCat I don't like the title either. It's a Low Carb USA event though, and there's some good interviews.

    [Edited to add: Ooops, It's not a Low Carb USA event. They just sponsored it.]

    I'm halfway through the Nasha Winters interview. She's discussing things I've not heard her explain elsewhere. If you have any concerns about cancer, please watch this interview. It's really good, though very fast paced, worth a second listen for me.

    Day 3 Link... https://go.kicksugarsummit.com/kss-2019-day-3-wednes

    Oh my, am just finishing up the interview with Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure and The Craving Cure, and she's discussing the amino acid therapies that helped so many people I knew in the 1990's with food bingeing problems.

    She begins however with changes to our diet beginning in the 1970's. I had forgotten that when the wheat was changed, greatly increasing its production, it also increased the gluten content and it's opiod effect, which I assume made wheat more addictive...and therefore processed foods...

    Longest interview in the event, but so worth a listen.

    I wish we had a bit more time to view these. I’m dipping in and out of the forum today a lot but am not somewhere I can sit and listen to these videos.

    HSSS, I'm having the same problem because I'm at work during the day. Hoping they'll do a replay weekend, but this is the first time I've attended this event so I don't know. Few can watch 6-8 hours of interviews a day!

    I'm mad. Halfway through Gary Fettke's talk and got cut off. Refreshed and couldn't get back to Day 3 for his talk because of the time sensitive nature. Are the organisers unaware of the time differences (and even this caused a glitch in the US with their time zones which had to be fixed). Day 4s speakers do not really appeal. If I start getting unwarranted emails advertising Florence and Mike 'One 2 One's I shall turn the air blue.

    Yes Guzzler, same thing happened to me listening to the Gary Fettke interview on Tuesday. Not sure, but I think that video was corrupted and not complete. It stopped suddenly halfway through. His wife's interview was really good. Watched that last night.

    Here's the link for Day 4... https://go.kicksugarsummit.com/kss-2019-thu-day-4

    I'm going to listen to the Thomas Delauer interview, because while researching potassium, he provided the most helpful information. He's very smart and a good teacher. There's two other interviews on the low carb ketogenic diet for cancer, so going to listen to those two interviews too.

    Ugh! I didn't get to listen to any of the Day 4 interviews because they're switching to the next day's talks at 9 p.m. Pacific Standard Time here in the US.

    Here's the link to the Day 5 talks... https://go.kicksugarsummit.com/kss_2019_day_the_grand_finale

    That said, for reasons I don't understand, up until now I've been able to go back and listen to talks on Day 1, 2, & 3. So tonight, I decided to first finish listening to the Gary Fettke interview. So glad I did!

    At minute 42:27, he was asked about what happened to him beginning back in 2014. He shared how they've since learned that there was some type report stating that sales of some type of processed food, cereal perhaps, can't remember, in Australia was declining due to what I would term the low carb movement. Eight influencers of the movement were listed. Gary Fettke was listed, the only doctor on the list. Additionally, Gary and his wife were going through the process of preparing for his upcoming hearings and learned a professor was going to testify, I assume against him. Gary and his wife later learned the professor served on the board of one of the big cereal companies, if I'm remembering right.

    All of this information suggests that Fettke was targeted. Sure sounds like that to me. There have since been government hearings, at least two.

    I realize the big food corporations care more about profits than our health. I've known this all along. But it just...makes my heart sad.

    Wish I could have transcribed the entire conversation for you all here, but it's not available right now. Perhaps it will be available again toward the end of Day 5. Or perhaps there will be a replay of all the interviews this weekend. I hope so. I'm going to buy the event so I can share some of the interviews with our diabetes group here. Perhaps those members who are still battling their addiction to processed food will get fired up, throw every processed food out of their pantry and into the garbage, and begin eating, for the first time in their lives real, whole foods, and restore their health.

    Just out of curiousity, I clicked on the Joan Ifland interview from Day 5 of the Kick Sugar Summit. Oh my gosh, she has a Ph.D. on addictive nutrition, and is a former processed food addict. She's written a textbook on the topic, published in 2018, and has written at least two other books too.

    Robert Lustig is going to use it to teach a class at one of the medical schools in California. Going to listen to the interview now, then try to get some sleep...

    Would have bought this for my group but ... its is £68 (hardcover on Amazon) so not before I have listened to her talk anyway! But if Rob Lustig is recommending it then that may tip the balance....I am hoping to find all these fab lectures on YouTube down the line too.

    42 interviews is too much to absorb in 5 days. Each day, I'd start with the interview I most wanted to listen too, then the second, etc. There were a few interviews that I stopped watching after 20 minutes. That helped too.
