Got any plans for March 12 to 15th this year? Well, here’s an idea! Head to the mile-high city of Denver, Colorado to dive deep into low-carb living.

Hangout with some of the world’s leading low-carb experts, get inspired by attendees’ transformative changes and get motivated in your own low-carb or keto journey.

This is the fifth year for Low Carb Denver, the largest low-carb conference of its type. The three-day event features 30 top-notch speakers and hundreds of low-carb attendees.

Hear Dr. Mark Cucuzzella talk about using continuous glucose monitors to track your blood sugar, Dr. Robert Lustig on the evidence around sugar and cancer, and Dr. Arthur Agatston on cardiac calcium scores and the low-carb diet.

It’s a not-to-miss event on the annual low-carb calendar.

And, this year a whole bunch of us from Diet Doctor are going to be there, including founder Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt and medical director Dr. Bret Scher, who are also on the speakers’ list. We’d love to meet you.

Our video team will be filming all the presentations, recording podcasts with Dr. Scher, and capturing content for future video offerings.

Members of the editorial team will staff the Diet Doctor booth, including our managing editor Hillary Kaylor, our amazing low-carb dietitians Franziska Spritzler and Adele Hite, and me. (If you are a medical professional using low carb, come see me so we can get you on our map. And if we have you listed already, just drop by and say “hi”.)

Rounding out the Diet Doctor team will be five of our amazing community moderators, led by our head of community Kristie Sullivan. They are the tireless people who answer member questions and support you in your challenges and triumphs, 24/7, via our very active, members-only Diet Doctor Facebook Group.

Organized each year by Dr. Jeffry Gerber, of Denver, and Dr. Rod Tayler, of Melbourne Australia, Low Carb Denver always has provocative and fascinating guests who are sure to expand your thinking and understanding about low-carb matters.

“Our goal is to educate and empower people to take charge of their health. We always hear every year that there is nothing like meeting face-to-face with like minded people to get you truly inspired and motivated,” said Dr. Gerber. “We encourage people from all walks of life to attend. There is something for everyone.”

Medical professionals who attend can earn 21 CME credits.

Register before the end of January to get an early bird discount on the conference cost.

We hope to see you there!
