LCHF Seminar now on YouTube!

In October we had planned a seminar on the Low Carb High Fat approach, which was so well received that we decided to hold another one only two weeks later. Many of you have already asked for the video for those who couldn’t attend or would like to watch it again. And here it is: 

Author: Prof. Grant Schofield

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

  1. I am so thrilled you have recorded and made this publically and freely available. Thank you so much. Not all of us can afford to pop over to NZ (much as we would like to) to attend. You have much to share with us… and I will share your insights with others who are still straying 🙂

  2. Hi grant,
    I emailed you in regards to the presentation as i was going to fly over from Australia. Luckily ive watched it on you tube and loved it. I will be attending the seminar you are presenting at in melbourne so i look forward to having a chat to you in regards to your thoughts on ketosis and wether its optimal for performance in endurence events

  3. Hi Grant,
    I just watched your seminar and it was very fascinating!!
    I was just wondering whether you would still recommend this approach to someone with high cholesterol? Really interested to hear your thoughts!

  4. Hi there – Thank you for sharing this presentation. I can not find the reading list you have referred too – are you able to point me in the right direction pls?
    Thanks!

  5. Hi. We have been on a LCHF diet since reading the feature that was in the Sunday Newspaper late last year. I have lost 5kg since that time – 86kg down to 81kg, after spending years struggling to control my weight. Hopefully my blood parametres at my next test will not make this choice to hard to defend with my cardiac specialist. I would like to attend the seminar in Auckland in late February but won’t be able to be in Auckland for that day. Is there any chance we can follow it as a webinar or will the sessions be posted subsequently? Thanks for showing the way in this area!
