    Wow just got home from this amazing weekend of talks and low carb meals at the Royal College of GP's in London.
    Some very impressive presenters including
    Dr David Unwin
    The guaranteed laughs from Dr Peter Brukner
    Super presentation on CICO and why it doesn't work by Dr Zoe Harcombe
    Very informative one on Low Carb and Type 1 by Dr Ian Lake
    Very interesting analysis of food addiction by Diabetes.co.uk's own Charlotte Summers alongside Dr Jen Unwin
    Brilliant opening this morning by Dr Aseem Malhotra charting his battle with the establishment
    A truly eye opening and tear inducing story from Prof Tim Noakes (who received no fewer than 3 standing ovations over the course of the weekend).
    A razor sharp critique of DUK's new nutritional guidelines by Dr Trudi Deakin
    as well as others on exercise and cardiology.

    As well as Charlotte our own @Administrator was there, as well as Ivor Cummings and some faces from the forum here including me (of course) @wiflib and @CherryAA and Benedict Jephcote the diabetes.co.uk editor. A team from dietdoctor was interviewing and recording videos of attendees and Daisy Brackenhall of the http://www.ketowomanpodcast.com was talking to lots of the great and the good of ketoworld. Even Dr Michael Moseley was in attendance on Saturday alongside Dr Zoe Wiliams from "Trust Me I'm a Doctor". A great conference very well organised by Sam Feltham and the PHC volunteers.

    I never thought I would say this but I have a serious case of conference envy!

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    Sounds brilliant!

    Edited to add, it must be great to meet like minded people with regards to Diabetes. Apart from my GP I’ve met no-one in real life that has knowledge about low carb approach to type 2

    Lots of people said that over the weekend. How refreshing it was to be amongst people who "got it".

    Yes anyone can attend if they’ve bought a ticket. I’ll let you know when the next one is announced.

    Thanks, I’d live to attend the next one. Is it annually and always in London?

    Sounds great @bulkbiker

    I looked at going but was put off by the cost. Will think about putting money aside for next year.

    @Rachox - This is the website: https://phcuk.org/about/

    I went to the first Conferrence in Birmingham and met with several folks we both know and know of there. It was great, although smallerer than this weekend's event.

    @bulkbiker - I watched/listened to some of the streaming over the weekend and got very excited about some of the things unfolding. I also noticed forum memberr @wiflib in the background of a photo on Twitter.

    I know some of the content will be published on YouTube etc., eventually, so we have that to look forward to.

    It was an extremely interesting conference . I went to LowCcarb Breckenridge as well and Zurich next. I get the real sense that things were starting to change. Dr Malhotra has done an enormous amount to bring the issues to the public attention in the UK. We might actually fill that chasm between early adopters and the majority in the next few months.

    I was very pleased to meet some of the characters in the saga face to face, especially Prof Noakes who is inspirational.

    Thanks for that info. I will wait and see if it’s not too far from me then. Pity I missed this year’s, London would have been easily doable for me.
