A broken world

Something is badly wrong. While the prosperity of the world has never been higher, people are suffering. More and more people – the majority in the Western world – are obese or overweight, and a large proportion are on prescription drugs every day for the rest of their lives.

Every year new people add to the sad statistics. As we get ever richer as a society our health appears to decline. Why is this?

People feel guilt and shame, like if the excess weight, hunger and tiredness was their fault, a moral failing. They count their calories and attempt to eat less food and exercise more, but it’s not working. If only they had more willpower.

Diabetes type 2 – a new epidemic in the history of humankind – will soon reach 500 million people. The death toll will be immense, as will the armies of people suffering the consequences: blindness, dementia, heart disease, cancer. This new disease is considered incurable and the treatment is daily drugs to reduce the symptoms. There is no cure, expert say.

Obesity – another new epidemic soon affecting half the population – is considered almost as incurable. The only effective treatment is said to be bariatric surgery, i.e. surgically removing parts of healthy organs. An operation with a significant risk of resulting in life-long misery and sometimes even death. And a year after surgery the excess weight usually starts returning.

What’s even worse, epidemics of obesity and diabetes are the tip of the iceberg. As these problems spread across the world other diseases soon follow: heart disease, cancer, eating disorders and food addiction, high blood pressure, ADHD, depression and on and on.

Experts still trumpet eating less and exercising more to slow down the epidemics. But that’s what we’ve been saying for 30 years, while the problem has exploded. It’s not working.

It may be even worse. The problem really started to get bad in the early 80s, just when we were told to eat “healthily”, just when the first Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released, and then copied around the world. That’s when the epidemic started.

Possibilities and what’s holding us back

Something is very wrong in the world today. Our bodies are made to stay healthy through our lives, and supply us with the energy to reach our goals and our potential. We can absolutely return to this natural state. With the resources the world has today there should be no stopping us.

This is not about a lack of willpower. You already have all the willpower you’ll ever need.

Imagine a world where all people can feel good in their bodies again, where all kids can run and play without catching their breath every few steps, where there’s no need for mass pill popping, a nation no longer on drugs, where nobody is obsessively counting calories to starve themselves. Where health is normal again. Where we can reach our potential and care for each other. Where we use our willpower for higher purposes, together shaping a better world for our children.

Much of what we need to get there is already known. But it’s not that simple. The food industry profits from selling cheap, low-fat, highly processed, nutritionally depleted and addictive food. And we’re advised to eat at least every three hours. The pharmacological industry profits by selling daily medications to temporarily reduce the symptoms of all the diseases caused by the food.

Junk-to-Drugs

These are trillion dollar industries. There’s a lot of money to be made keeping you sick.

The truth is obscured by corporate propaganda, companies selling junk food and pills, using lies, to the benefit of their shareholders, but to the detriment of humanity. It’s obscured by government ineptitude, allowing corporations to rule via armies of high-payed lobbyists, while relying on old experts who are often stuck in failed preconceptions, unable to update their thinking. That is, if the experts are not simply funded by corporations too.

Just as an example, it was recently exposed how Coca-Cola spend tens of millions of dollars buying the loyalty of government health experts and scientists as well as high-profile bloggers and personal trainers. To not mention the dangers of drinking sugar. To keep quiet about it. That’s the reality behind their slogan about “open happiness” and billions of dollars of feel-good advertising. How is obesity, disease and lies the road to happiness?

It may seem impossible to change this. What can one person do? Not much. But together, using modern tools… if we have the will, we can change anything.

Towards the solution

What would you do if there was a clear way to make the world a better place?

diamond3
Most of the truth we need is already out there, it is already known, many are already using it with fantastic results. What’s needed is to find this truth and make it as simple as possible to use. To empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

This can’t be achieved using old thinking, we’ll have to question everything. And it can’t be achieved by selling a magic product, a pill or a packaged food product or by financing from the corporations who are profiting from the status quo. That’s the thinking that got us into this mess.

Here at Diet Doctor we want to be a part of the solution. That’s why we’ve decided to take no money from industry, sell no food, no supplements, no other products and to have no ads.

Instead we’re fully funded by the people, via an optional membership (free trial available).

Everything necessary we give away for free to the world, even without signing up. We’re focusing on free simple guides, recipes and step-by-step plans, providing everything you need to lose weight without hunger or to cure diabetes type 2.

Welcome to Diet Doctor. Let us tell you more about reality and some of the misconceptions that stop people from achieving health and happiness.

The solution

The solution to the obesity and diabetes epidemics already exists. It’s very simple:

LCHF Food

That’s basically it. Although there are details too: if you want to lose weight effortlessly or improve your diabetes you should probably make a special effort to drastically reduce the carbohydrates, especially sugar and processed starch (like flour).

Natural fat, like butter? Eating that is fine. Red meat? That’s fine too. Calories? That’s just another, bizarre, name for food. Eating real food is perfectly fine, as long as you are hungry. Counting calories and ignoring your hunger is an eating disorder.

Exercise? That’s great for your health and well-being, but it’s never going to make you thin. You cannot outrun a bad diet.

There’s only one long-term solution that is truly effective. Eat real food, when you are hungry.

Why change is so slow

So if the problem is so huge, and the solution already exists – why is the problem not solved already?

TIME: Eat ButterBecause of inertia, old dogma and vested interests. Primarily it’s just hard for us humans to change our minds. It takes time.

The mistaken fear of natural fat is still just about alive, like some kind of half-dead zombie – even though modern science has thoroughly disproven it. The magazine TIME even put this fact on their cover in 2014. Fearing natural fat leads to even more high-carb, high-sugar junk food – so it’s been a really bad idea.

There is also massive money to be made from the status quo. The entire food and pharmaceutical industries depend on it, and they employ armies of lobbyists and even researchers.

The food industry wants to divert the blame from their own bad food (the real problem) to their consumers. Thus their emphasis on calorie counting, “personal responsibility” and exercise.

The pharmacological industry does not want people to get well. It’s easy to understand why. That would put them out of business.

The government would love to improve the health of the people, but official agencies move slowly and they are easy prey for trained lobbyists and influencers. Just look at Michelle Obama’s sadly failed “Let’s Move” campaign. As soon as the junk-food industry got involved it all turned into empty pep talk, with no real change that anybody truly believes in.

Bringing the solution to the people

Paulos Hughes
As no solution is coming from the top, it can only come from the bottom, from people like you and me. And it will, because nothing is so powerful as an idea whose time has come.

The Diet Doctor organization wants to speed this process up and we have a plan to do it. We want to make it much simpler to understand and get inspired to revolutionize your health. And then for you to help other people – your friends, family, etc. – to revolutionize their health.

Then the cycle can repeat, at ever greater scale.

Use the menu at the top of the page to find our best guides. And don’t forget to sign up for our free weekly newsletter. If you do it now you also get access to a free video course on eating a low-carb high-fat diet.

This talk from 2016 summarizes the ongoing revolution. How we realize old mistakes and the most effective way to improve our health and weight.

Possibilities

Do you want to help change the world? There are many things you can do. Here are a few suggestions:

    Hi There...

    I've stumbled across this website yesterday and have decided to give the two week challenge a try, just a couple of questions please:

    1) does the recipes need to be done in order?
    2) When it says 4 portions, I think I've read it right that 1 person = 2 portions (2 portions for dinner and 2 portions for the following lunchtime?)

    I would really appreciate any help - Many Thanks in Advance

    Anne

    Reply: #652
  2. Anne,
    1/ You can change the order if you want.
    2/ One person needs one serving for dinner and one for lunch.

    I love your website and how easy you make this. I think I love the education you provide most though. I trained in a gym to lose body fat but was lifting heavy as well as watching food (although they never thought us the information needed to understand what was happening). I made small errors that kept my body fat % higher than i wanted, so i left training with a personal trainer and read what I could and dropped more BF. I hurt my back lifting weights three years ago and post op didn't stick to what the gym guys called 'Paleo'. So I was happy to get back on track using your site and not hurting myself with heavy exercise. I maintain a lean weight without exercising much now (although I do love my mountain bike). The energy and mental clarity are also great side effects of sticking to strict HFLC. I stick to strict usually 5 days a week (the other days i stick to under 50g carbs) and only cycle 2 or 3 times (sometimes less). Unfortunately I find the older generation harder to discuss high fat with but I love how people my own age (40) notice the low fat diets aren't working so are generally happy to try this.
    I'm based in Ireland where we have serious overweight issues so am always happy to spread the word.
    Keep up the great work !

    My husband has been trying to lose weight for ages. I came across this site and thought it was worth giving it a go. In just one week my husband has lost 10lb and 2 inches off his belly. He is really pleased, and so am I.

    Hello all.....
    I'm not sure that this is the right place to be writing this, but even though I'm a member I don't seem to be able to find the right avenue to share my journey so far and seek the opinion of others. So forgive me if this is the wrong place.
    I accidentally stumbled across dietdoctor.com in early January 2016 as part of my pretty much lifelong hunt for a way to eat that wasn't 'crazy'. I say that only partly in jest. I am a 59 year old post-menopausal female who has been eating disordered for most of the last 45 years. I am neither diabetic, pre-diabetic nor overweight and prior to commencing LCHF my exercise regime consisted of cycling 250-300km and walking 50km a week. I am also vegetarian, currently acutely iron deficiency anaemic and osteoporotic (most likely as a result of poor eating behaviors for many years), soooooo you can see why I and others might use the term 'crazy' in regard to my eating and exercising behaviors.

    I initially began LCHF to keep below 20g of carbs. I seem to have been watching dietdoctor video clips and movies endlessly since the end of January. I have read Drs Westman, Phinney and Volek's 'New Atkins, New You'. There is so much information to assimilate and whilst I don't feel I've 'failed', I also don't feel I've been marvelously successful on LCHF if the gauge of that is losing weight or centimeters on the tape measure. I have lost a little weight (55.5kg down 53kg give or take depending on time of weighing) but what concerns me is that I certainly have not experienced any of the increased energy or indeed the mental clarity of which others speak.
    I am currently taking medication for the low iron stores but can't imagine that that is interfering with weight loss. Can the lack of energy be explained by the aenemia rather than the diet? I have noted the need to drink 2 cups of bouillon and increase salt intake and am doing that. I still find that my cycling is awful! It doesn't help that it's as hot as hell here in Brisbane ATM so a lot of electrolytes are lost through sweat.... Of course, I come from that band of 'over-exercisers' who have spent years carbo-loading before and during 'endurance' (100km etc) rides. It has been a huge change to head out on the bike with only a cup of coffee (made with cream not milk!) and 10 almonds in my stomach!
    I've probably lost you all here and gone on for too long. I don't want to give up LCHF as it makes the most wonderful sense. But I am finding I still feel physically below par. I am currently trying increasing my fat intake (coconut oil in coffee, fat bombs, more cheese) as it is much more difficult to get it as a vegetarian.

    Is there anyone else out there my age/gender/activity level who can give me any suggestions or encouragement?!
    Thanks.

    Unfortunately we do not yet have a forum or similar place to discuss. We'll have to fix that soon.

    Perhaps you could buy a test gear to see if you are in ketosis or not...something like this:

  8. Jan
    Dr Peter,
    Thanks for your response. I'll check out the site you suggest. It would indeed be useful to know whether or not I am in ketosis, and if not, to modify my eating accordingly.
    Thanks again.

    Hi Dr Andreas

    I have become member to your site recently and I must say that you are doing a fantastic job

    What I would REALLY love is for you to create an app that combines the videos in the website, Recipes directly integrated with carbs and calories counters so that you can keep track seamlessly, and potentially the possibility to order the ingredients for those recipes within the app, I know there are tons of apps that might do that, however none of them would have a comprehensive and expert website behind with such a great amount of information and number of followers

    This is Food for thoughts and not for diet 😉

    Thank you again for this excellent website
    Luca

    Forgotten to say that I would be happy to pay as much as I have paid for the app that counts my carbs right now which 2.99 Pounds Sterling, I would be happily pay those money for an app that does what I have suggested(and I believe people would be happy also)

    Thanks

    Help! My daughter is a moral vegetarian (since age 3). No one else in the family is a vegetarian. Where is a good resource for vegetarian (not vegan) LCHF?
  16. Walter A
    Dr. Eenfeldt....

    It's all so confusing........

    I have followed the Diet Doctors Instructions for a little over a Month now, but a recent presentation by a Doctor Michael Greger on UTube made me think and question whether I am on the right Track by following a LCHF Diet, since I have been suffering from Arteriosclerosis for many Years.
    The Documentary in Question is named "uproot the leading Cause of Death" and suggests that a Vegan Diet is the only Road to Success. The Presentation is well done and full of "factual" Data from supposedly clinical Studies.....could you briefly comment on that if you are familiar with Doctor Greger's "scientific" Lectures and Statistics? Thank you very much.....Walter A Urweider

    I am following guidelines strictly but feel very fatigued 6 weeks in. Test my blood ketones every morning but levels are poor 0.4- 0.6 -0.4- 1.3 never higher. Urine readings good. I am wondering if the low ketones is why I feel fatique? What shld I do? Does this mean I can't Fat Adapt ? Female 60 5'2" 84kg moderately active am losing weight however but feeling poorly on 20g CHO up to 90g protein (is this too much protein ) and 90-100g fat. Do I have to eat breakfast? Should calories not drop below 1200 re slowing metabolism.? Thank you
    Reply: #669
  19. I think you can try to skip the breakfast, eat a bit less carbs and protein and a lot more fat and see what happens. Why not take some of the "balls" described in the recipe below every evening.
    https://ketointheuk.wordpress.com/2014/03/22/chocolate-coconut-balls/
    Don't forget to drink water with added salt and see if that makes you feel better.

    If the steps above doesn't help then perhaps you should test to eat a less strict diet.

    Good luck! 🙂

    I am surprised to read about how complicated many find the plan. I read a lot of the basics on the website over and over at first and found the first 1 week to be hard. I use a lot of low carb, low sugar recipes from various places. Food.com has a section entitled "low carb, very low carb" that has tons of great recipes. I have been on the plan 8 months and lost 28 pounds (164-136). It didn't take too long for me to realize many of the things I have always cooked can still be made with minor adjustments! Examples--pot roast cooked with carrots- no flour coating on roast, meatloaf using pork rinds instead of breadcrumbs, Eggplant Parmesan (pork rinds again). Maybe it doesn't sound like it, but I am really strict with what I eat on the plan!! Don't make it so hard or you'll quit!! Several of my friends have started and stopped for that very reason! Do look at every label you pick up and at first, down your carb count (little scrap of paper, not a big formal "log") as you eat each day, then, just keep it in your head. My husband is doing this too and we'll look at each othe & say "HOW did this happen???!!"

    Dear Diet Dr,
    waiting for your reply to Walter A.
    The issue with cholesterol, arteriosclerosis etc has been bothering me too. I've been on LCHF for about 1.5 years now. After initially losing about 18kg in 8 months I plateaued, then continued less stricty (at Xmas for example). Gained 2-3kg, now stable. No significant exercise, just walk 5-7km/week and I have noticed muscle wasting. My cholesterol has risen steadily, now about 8.
    There seem to be no before/after studies documenting reduction of arteriosclerosis on LCHF diet, which I find worring. Are we being used as guineapigs? Why is the accent on healthy foods even more important than low carb foods? For example margarine is low carb, but strictly forbidden. Most nuts are ok, but not peanuts although they are low carb. Is this to do with the inflammation aspect of arteriosclerosis? Appreciate your expertise on these matters.

    I'm very confused by the structure of the website. I can never find exactly what I'm looking for. I know you have recipes for fish somewhere, but when I type in "fish recipes", I can't find them. I'd like to find the page of all the recipes again--I stumbled on it yesterday--but now it's missing! I know I found a page-top heading for recipes a few days ago, but not now. Could I have a key to the structure, please?
  27. Hi Judith!

    You find the fish recipes here:
    http://www.dietdoctor.com/best-fish-recipes-fresh-fabulous

    But you are right it can be a bit confusing...the actual structure to find recipes from the start-page is:

    - -Choose "Low Carb" from top menu -- Choose recipes from second top menu --
    Choose between "Meals Breakfasts Sides Condiments Snacks Bread Vegetarian" from second top menu -- if you choose "Meals" then you can click on pictures for "Strict", "Moderate" and "Liberal" --- Then all recipes in that category will be listed. 🙂

    Dear Dr.,

    I have been on your diet since JAN 2016. I HAVE LOST 15 POUNDS but I just had blood work and my over all cholesterol went from 202 to 264 and my LDL was 124 is now 175. Is there such a thing as having to much fat on this diet? I am confused and not sure if I should continue this diet? PLEASE HELP.

    Rose

  31. Mary
    why do your recipes not give the number of carbs per recipe. How can one keep track of their daily carbs, when they're not shown with the recipes? The recipes look great, but I'd like to know how many carbs I'm eating a day, when I can't go over 60.

    I came to this website for some awesome low carb tips, which I found here. I was considering subscribing until I opened my inbox the next day and found my email address was shared with all sorts of disgusting vendors.
    Very disappointing and I now spend my days attempting to unsubscribe from all of their viral emails lists as well as this one. Not classy Diet Doctor. Not classy!

  34. Very unhappy,
    We would never EVER share email adresses with anyone else.

    Newsletter subscriber emails are not even kept on our servers but only by our email provider Mailchimp.com – one of the major such companies. I've not heard of any hacks of their site, and I presume they have email security as their number one priority (anything else would be suicidal for the company). So my guess would be that the leak was somewhere else.

    I am just loving this LCHF..It sure took me some getting used to the concept as I like many other was brainwashed into think low fat was the best way to go.
    6 months ago I was pre-diabetic - GONE!!!!!! - I have lost 15kg or 33ib since January 1. Now My hubby has joined me on this lifestyle change and he has lost 8kgs or 17ib in just a few weeks.
    I really appreciate all the work that goes into providing us with such insight and helpful information
    Keep up the awesome work - slowly but surely we will revolutionise healthy eating

    I just came across this recipe from The Sucre Farine blog that I follow. This is the most AMAZING avocado mayonnaise - easy to make, delicious and will probably take over first place for my condiment addition to a healthy diet. I thought you might like to share it:

    http://thecafesucrefarine.com/2016/04/california-avocado-mayo/

    It goes with so many things (almost everything in my view).

    I am constantly enjoying new recipes from your site. I have found no need to invest in cookbooks due to the range you have, which is always changing and as well - once I learned WHAT to eat, the sky was the limit. I had originally felt that the choices were limited which I believed would make this way of eating very challenging (even for someone like me who LOVES to cook) but now I see I was wrong. I am still losing weight (albeit quite slowly - not like some of the others on the site) and am happy with my progress.

    I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me and those around me who I am always happy to share my experience with.

    On another note, I was rather shocked (should I be?) and saddened to read an article in our newspaper yesterday stating that Tom Hanks had stated on David Letterman (in 2013) that he was pre-diabetic for NINETEEN YEARS before crossing the threshold into the full-blown disease. As the writers of this article (Drs. Oz and Roizen) stated, "Why did it take that long go do something?" I think we know the answer to that. Another client for pharmaceuticals for the rest of his life rather than curing the disease. And Dr. Oz's suggestion - "The key is to prevent and/or reverse insulin resistance: Getting regular exercise that increases aerobic endurance and builds muscle and a balanced diet works". NO mention of dietary changes. And this is a physician who millions follow believing he is THE authority on matters of health. He has proven himself wrong once again.

    The message is getting out SLOWLY, but it IS getting out there. It makes for some interesting dialogue with physicians, especially mine, these days.

    Stay the course!

    I've left a comment on the first page in reply to a person who stated that there was no fiber in the LCHF diet. I wrote a few of the high fiber foods recommended that are low carb. My comment was reported, I'd like to know why it was considered IMPROPER?

    I'm just starting out so please humour me if any of these questions sound stupid.
    1. I'm doing strict less than 20 g carb per day. I have shopped according to the instructions and have bought only foods with less than 5% carbs per 100g. Am I right in that I can eat these foods freely without counting them?? Do I count all foods over 5% restricting the total to 20.
    2. Do I have to have the 20 or can I stick to the free to eat foods????
    3. take multiple meds for chronic fibromyalgia. Am I ok to do strict under 20? ???

    Thanks for your time

  39. All carbs counts , sorry 🙂 So if you eat 500 gram of something that have 4% carbs, then you have reached 20 gram of carbs.

    I can't see any problem with strict LCHF and chronic fibromyalgia, it might even get better. But if you are a member feel free to ask questions like that to our experts:

    Hi -

    How can we find a PCP in our area (Boston MA) who can help supervise my husband with his high blood pressure medicine as well as metformin and atorvastatin as he and I both are eating LCHF and starting to do 24 hour fasts. I would really like him to get off the statin. Any suggestions?

    Can't find anywhere else on the site to put this. A confusing typo, till I figured out what he meant - in http://www.dietdoctor.com/jan-lost-101-pounds-without-hunger-or-count..., quote, "Instead of the low-fat bread we buy, I use half a package of butter for my bread which provides satiety." Surely he means low-fat SPREAD, not bread.

  44. Trevor,

    Actually not a typo, but I have now made the sentence clearer. He means that he uses half a package of butter when he makes his own bread, and that this bread is very different from the store-bought bread. So no low-fat spread involved 🙂

    "Hello all.....
    I'm not sure that this is the right place to be writing this"

    Hi Jan,

    I take it you live in Brisbane Qld Australia, where I live.
    I am a physiologist and physiotherapist in the northern suburbs, and have a long professional interest in weight management, and more importantly longevity.

    I have only found the dietdoctor website today, and will try and get up to speed with its approach asap. However, at the outset, I think there's room for improvement in its interpretation of the literature and summary recommendations.

    If I understand you correctly, you have been a vegetarian for decades, but also state your eating habits are poor. If a vego, you really have less wriggle room to eat an unbalanced diet - vit D, iron, B12, and dozens of phytonutrients and anti-oxidants will be missed.

    Further, your cycling and walking history, combined with poor diet, is an issue, especially in the sub tropics where things are compounded by higher sweat rates. Osteoporosis is likely to be accelerated due to the moderate concentration of calcium in sweat.

    I take it your GP has backed you off exercise until you get your Vit D sorted.
    your presentation is common amongst women who exercise as much as you. It is also common in vegetarians who compromise on nutrient density.

    If you would like to discuss your journey further, I am in Brisbane until the early May, after which I'll be overseas for several months....though happy to discuss via email before and after.

    Cheers
    Bruce Gray
    Google should help you find me, or just respond here in the first instance.

    Totally loving all the new recipes pouring into the site every day - thanks so much. I, for one, believe that what you are offering here for such a minimal fee each month is completely amazing. I have been subscribed since you started and just wanted to let you know what a wonderful resource you have and how much it is appreciated.
    Thank you for everything

    Wow, my wife found this website and after talking we decided to give it a try. It is not really a diet, more of a life-style change. I don't go hungry and many times can't eat everything. I have lost 25 lbs. in 10 weeks and find this very easy to follow. Thanks for bringing this onto the internet where we can find it.

    Done.
  52. It seems you've already taken care of that – no more action needed.

    i am a 29 year old woman and I've struggled with my weight my whole life. The only way I lose weight and keep it off is by exercising 45min in the morning and at night and eating perfectly. I started LCHF in August 2015 and gained 7lbs and can't seem to lose it. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have 35% cream in my coffee, cook with butter and coconut oil, eat limited amounts of vegetables. Don't eat the foods that are not allowed. My doctor is now having my thyroid checked. any advice? Am I possibly eating too much protein?

    Can someone please tell me where Pumpkin fits into the LCHF Lifestyle? It doesn't seem to be given a mention! Technically it's a vine grown FRUIT. Would love to know. Thanks

    I would like to see more information about measuring ketones. Blood, breath and urine.

    I am checking to see if you have an affiliate program. I have been using some of Dr Fongs suggestions to help with my kidney disease.

    Thanks

    Hi Dennis,
    I was going thru some of the older comments and saw that you'd done an app on LCHF food. Without buying the app the impression I get from the pics of your app in iTunes is that you are mixing up calories (which are totally unimportant in LCHF) and carb counts, which are essential. This was early 2014 so it maybe sorted out by now..

    Inspiring recepes for an occasional cook. I will make my first attempt this evening with the egg pizza, vegetarian version. However, I am very dubious about olive and high temperature cooking. The belief over here (UK) is that there could be carcinogenic effects. Rapeseed oil is preferred.
