Many reasons to check out the film (releasing in Nov-Dec 2018)

Jill is a local Low Carb weight maintainer, losing and maintaining over 120+ pounds via Low Carb, NSNG, and Keto. She's living the dream, as am I.  Check out Jill's Instagram, where she is very active.

Gary Taubes makes an impactful appearance at Low Carb and in the film. Kudos for facing the heat and getting the word out. And for having me deliver key communications to VIP's. LOL.

 The ever awesome Vinnie Tortorich and beautiful Serena Scott Thomas. Love those two! Thank you X 1,000,000 for helping us get and stay well.

The many volunteers who also worked Low Carb USA, but covered for me while I was helping the film crew collect VIP's for their time slots during filming. 

I couldn't believe how much film equipment came out of this truck!

Thanks to my volunteer friends who covered for me while I was helping the film crew!
Hope you are all well. I'm about the same weight wise. Working on house projects and gearing up for a super busy fall at work.

  1. Fantastic Karen!! I'll definitely watch that movie when it comes out. I can see your excitement in all of the photos :)

    1. Thanks, Lynda!!! OMG. so much was going on those 3 days. I had done the original NSNG meet up in LA in 2015 so I knew Vinnie and Serena well. And I'm familiar with Hollywood filming from work and being in proximity to LA. Fun, fun times.

  2. I will definitely have to check it out!!!!

    1. MaryFran, thanks! I'm fortunate that the "Low Carb Cardiologist" is at my low carb meetings in San Diego often. You can just go to the back of the room and ask general questions and he is so kind and knowledgeable. I'm super glad low carb is being offered as a choice, long with the other weight loss/maintenance plans. :) Thanks for stopping by the blog, as always.

  3. Fantastic Karen
    Our good wishes from all at the low carb diabetic blog

    All the best Jan, Eddie and Graham

    1. Jan! Waving hello to you all. I had so much fun!!!!!

  4. So fantastic! I'm looking forward to this movie also.

    After 4+ years being low-carb, I've finally signed up for a low carb conference myself, and am super excited - it's Low Carb Denver, in March, 2019. Can't wait!

    1. Wendy, you will LOVE it!!! Fabulous. Glad you can make it. Amber O'hearn invited me to the Carnivore conference (I'm not zero carb) the day before. Not going to make it to Denver, but it's going to be fabulous.
