Steve Phiney lecture


Dr Steve Phiney, the LCHF guru, will be visiting our research centre and doing a public presentation on the evening of Thursday August 28th. We will focus the session on both health AND sport and endurance performance. Places will be limited to 100 – please register your interest with us by email hcentrem@aut.ac.nz with “Steve Phiney rego” in the subject line.

We are going to ask for $5-10 donations on the night to help cover costs.

Dr Phiney is the co-author of best sellers and highly useful books — The art and science of low carbohydrate living, and the Art and science of low carbohydrate performance click here for more.

Here’s a recent lecture by Dr Phiney on “The art and science of nutritional ketosis

Jimmy Moore is coming!


Jimmy Moore – author and champion low carb podcaster – the living la vida low carb man himself, will be talking about his new book “Keto clarity” when he visits Auckland and our research centre on November 12th (date to be confirmed). We will tie in a whole afternoon and evening with Jimmy and our team focused on the health and well being side.  Myself and Dr Caryn Zinn will deliver our annual public “science and practice of nutrition” lecture.  Last year’s one has over 25,000 views on youtube. We will call for registrations when the time comes.

Low carb down under Melbourne


The provisional program is now out for a day of low carb rockstars at the St Kilda town hall Saturday August 30th. Dr Steve Phiney is doing two talks, as is Prof Tim Noakes. Here’s the website where you can register. Seriously, if you want to catch the latest and greatest this day will be awesome.

And finally, on Friday 29th August at the Nutrition society conference in Queenstown, I will be debating Professor Rod Jackson – the guy who publicly slagged me for talking about fat in this recent documentary, and describes butter as toxic.  Hopefully someone will video this for public digestion……
