Hmmm ... no link to register yet. Curious if there will be a lot of selling of their products. Not necessarily a bad thing. Wonder about the cost to attend. Will have to check back to the linked site periodically. I did subscribe so hopefully they'll announce more via email.

Under each event is "learn more" click that green tab and it goes to EventBrite for all details and registering. The price has varied on cost of venue and if lunch provided. Atlanta is $50, snacks provided and you can buy/ bring own lunch.
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/adapt-...ets-52921178670

The Adapt folks have a table, in lobby or back of room, you can talk to them or not like any conference. Assume Dr Jockers will too. But Dr Westman's talks are educational. The Adapt You Life YouTube channel and FB page has many, many educational videos about LC and videos of some talks at the events. Josh Perry, the BMX athlete with cancer, spoke at the Roxboro event.

Thanks. It did not take me to Eventbrite when I clicked that button. Will try again when I get home.

Now reading testimonials from the over 300 people who attended the event in Tennessee last weekend, a sold out hall. But there are still tickets availalble for Atlanta this weekend (in three days) and then Tampa.

Post by an enhusiastic TN attendee:

Quote:
I was there!!! It was soo inspirational!! Dr. Westman & Dr. Berry & Neisha were so generous with their time. You guys see the amount of people in that room? It held 300 people. The event was sold out I believe. Dr. Berry asked the whole room, "How many people are already doing keto?" Almost everyone raised their hand. Then he said, "How many people are NOT from Tennessee?" And almost everyone raised their hand. And then he said, "How many people ever travelled that far for a Weight Watchers meeting?" And NO ONE raised their hand. That is a testament to how powerful eating ketogenically is. We heard testimony of the reversal of obesity, diabetes, remission of auto immune disorders like Lupus & others, reversal of Poly Cystic Ovary Disease, elimination of acid reflux, overcoming food addiction and even eating disorders. The list goes on and on. And it's not like we haven't heard these testimonies before, but it's powerful to hear it in person. This is about more than just weight loss, people!! Everyone was there to thank the doctors for changing their lives, and to commiserate with people who KNOW. Keto is the PROPER HUMAN DIET. If you get a chance to go to one of these events, GO!

These three Adapt events have been wildly successful, sold out. You can see many photos from the events at the AdaptYourLife FB page.

The Atlanta group, led by Jess Dudley, is going to continue to connect the LC community that began at the recent event.

Quote:
[B]Post Adapt Event "Meet Up"
Feb 26, Tuesday night 7 pm.
The C3 campus in Lawrenceville.

Need more info, contact Jess at http://www.findyourfood.org
or on her FB pages. Plan is to continue but see how it develops.



Do you know what you really believe in? I mean, what do you really believe?

I believe I do better when I am connected with others going in the same direction as I am. #Community
I might thrive on a low-carb approach, it's true. Yet, I stay on a low-carb approach because of you! Because I'm accountable to others. Because I lean on others! Because I believe in community.

I'm excited to announce that our local community is piloting a support community with Adapt for our friends here in Atlanta. "Adapt and Thrive!" Launces this coming week.
Tues night at 7pm, we'll continue the conversations we started! We'll continue the friendships we've started.
Over 70 people have signed up to return!

So, what do you believe in? How will you get to your goals? Can you keep your focus all by yourself?
If you can, that's great! I needed a little help from my friends!

Come join us!

I ended up going to the event in Tampa this weekend. I wasn't as excited as I'd hoped - I was fighting the flu. But it was interesting. Very motivational. I enjoyed Dr. Westman's philosophy, honesty, and understated humor. He acknowledges that we are human and those of us here in the US grew up with a sweet tooth so he does not shoot down the use of AS. He also clarified for me, without intending to I'm sure, why I keep thinking Atkins '72 was ketogenic. The first phase was - and that was the only phase I stuck with because I had so much to lose back then.

Other speakers were informative and motivational. Suzanne Ryan (lost 120 pounds and is keeping it off), Dr. Lowry, Dr. Koche, Josh Perry (4x brain tumor survivor), and Danny Vega (fat fueled family).

Most importantly, the event allowed us to find other like-minded keto folks in the area.

I do which more MD's had attended. I don't think there were any in the audience.

Thanks for the report. Maybe you can continue with a local group like Jess is doing in Atlanta.
Josh Perry is an inspiring speaker. He now lives in Raleigh...the outdoor skate park in this film not far from my home. https://youtu.be/lHjH_M7zdCs

The Adapt FB page has a clip of the Tampa audience. Not sure this link will work, but every event has something similar on the Adpt your Life FB page, which is public.
