Yes, I sat through 3 hours of Q&A sessions (as they were the only ones with low carb presenters/pannelists). It was painful to listen to.
But I think your central point is that at least this insurance giant is seeing the benefits of starting the conversation. I was intrigued by this statement in the conference blurb:
“Swiss Re believes that improved nutritional advice will lead to better health outcomes and greater societal resilience against lifestyle diseases.”
Suggests to me that there is some understanding that we have got it a bit wrong at the moment. The problem for me is that there doesn’t seem to be an acceptance that low carb has a contribution to make: how many low carb presenters were there at this conference? In round numbers? Er, about zero.
