#LowCarbBreck ’18

Credit: Ted Eytan, MD @tedeytan

This last weekend I got to present at easily one of my favorite conferences to date, Low Carb Breckenridge 2018. Moreover, I had been working extra hard on this particular deck as it was meant to illustrate the energy model of lipids as I see them for a layperson audience.

It was also easily the busiest conference for me as there were quite a lot of contacts and connections with many key people that have led to many new opportunities moving forward. But while it’s fun to connect with A-listers, I really got to hear some remarkable personal stories from many of the attendees and their own journeys on this road.

It’s hard to emphasize enough just how happy I feel in helping others to understand this challenging subject. Cholesterol is so difficult to work through given the many dense texts and literature that surround it. Which is why my favorite compliments aren’t from doctors with 14 letters after their name, it’s from people like Stacy from Ohio. (Hi Stacy!) As these statements were made to me in private, I won’t repeat them here. But I’ll just say they were all very powerful and moving to me. Thank you!

Hi Dave, Great work you are doing here sir. I have just had my almost annual blood tests come in and was wondering if you would like to add them to your mine? Thanks,


Hi Dave,

Just watched the recorded version of LowCarbBreck…Wow…that was really impressive.

Anyway, I thought you would be interested in last comment on this article (there is only two of them)

There are most likely many more hyper responders than you think.
