    I don't mean to be dense but is this going to be online? I don't understand how we "attend" for 5-6 days.

    I didn't get any clarification from the website

    Thanks to anyone with working brain cells who explains this to me.

    @minkeygirl with these summits you just register, and then you should get info about when the talks/presentations are going to be (on the website you can already see the different topics and the people who will give the online talks).

    It is usually either live streamed in a video, or like a radio call. Normally they send a sound file afterwards to registered participants, so you can listen to the info in your own time, in case you want to listen to it again, or weren't able to attend the live online session.

    They also usually send you info goodies about the topics they talked about, but that's basically just a way of getting your email so they can spam the heck out of you later. ;) (I usually just unsubscribe once everything's over)

    @Effi. Thanks I have the attention span of a gnat. Please do not Google gnat attention spans! Lol.

    Guess I'll sign up. I wonder if the talks will end up on YouTube? @ahmo you signing up?

    Hi @minkeygirl Yes, I've signed up for both. I listened to quite a few of the gut summit last time it was on, so not sure which I'll listen to this time. More interested in fat at present.:rolleyes:

    Like Effi said, the talks are free, and there are some excellent presenters. Then they start inviting you to join a program or buy the recordings, or whatever $-making add-ons are possible. I record the talks I want. and then generally never go back to listen...

    I don't know if I'll be able to listen. Pesky brain and all.

    When I was confirming enrollment something came up asking for money.

    I used a throw away email so only mildly annoying. Lol

    Just signed up for the Fat Summit. Last time I did a summit I think was in 2013. I'm probably not going to be able to listen though. It's also mostly people I've already seen talks of years ago, so not sure if I'll learn anything. But there's usually some free extra info you get here and there and there will be at least something I'll learn from it.

    btw I'm a bit put off by the insane titles of the talks: 'cure (insert disease) forever', 'the ultimate guide to beating cancer' etc.

    I've gotten email responses from both summits, both say I'm registered for free. I think you're running into their "Click here for full package" to purchase the recordings.

    Ah yes,, we're gonna be cured.;):lol:

    I'm finally listening to some vids from the host of a Dec. 2015 fat summit, Yuri Elkaim. Seems like all the pertinent info re how to burn fat efficiently, lose weight, is here. Vid 1 emphasises role of adrenals, long term low carbs impacting thyroid.

    Just tried to listen to one of the presentations of the first day (Deepak Chopra), but it was impossible to listen to. Super metallic voice (recording of a skype connection?), my ears couldn't handle it. From the couple of snippets I tried to listen to, it didn't seem like he was saying anything groundbreaking.

    Did anyone else listen in?

    @Effi I haven't listened to any of them yet. I was most interested in fat burning, and found that Yuri's info is probably all I need. Turns out I'm not so psyched for online summits at present. As I'm not suffering from gut problems any more. I'd rather pick up a novel.;)

    @ahmo I had written down the names of the talks I wanted to listen to, but if it's going to be like this first one, I'll just skip them all together. The last time I took part in a summit was years ago, but after so many years of self study about all this nutrition + health stuff, I'm not even sure if I could even learn anything from it. I'll just watch some entertaining tv instead! ;)
