2008 ASBP/Nutrition & Metabolism Conference Presented Compelling Evidence For Low-Carb Diets

Filed under: Events — @ April 15, 2008

The 2008 ASBP scientific meeting in Phoenix, AZ was amazing!

Sitting in a room full of bariatric physicians with lecturers who sometimes sound like they’re speaking a foreign language with all the science and medical jargon they spout off isn’t exactly the most ideal way to spend a few days away from home. But when all of the top low-carb researchers and practitioners from North America gather in one place to share their latest findings in the world of livin’ la vida low-carb, you can’t help but get super-excited about what is to come in the future of diet and health as the evidence in favor of low-carb diets continues to mount. What a weekend it was!

Sponsored by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, the 2008 Nutrition & Metabolism Society Seminar held in Phoenix, Arizona presented the science supporting the low-carb lifestyle from the biggest names in the world of low-carb research–Phinney, Westman, Vernon, Volek, Feinman, Wortman, Tarino, and German. This year’s conference included two half-day sessions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning that was in my opinion even better than the one in Nashville, TN last year.
