To tell you about the Diet Doctor organization and its purpose – to revolutionize the health of humankind – we need to start with a story.
You’re probably aware that there’s a huge problem in the world today. It’s causing suffering and disease for billions of people (yes, that’s billions with a B). And the knowledge needed to fix this problem forever already exists.
The problem is the epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes and related illnesses. These diseases – and more – are all mainly caused by our industrial Western diet and the situation is highly profitable, for some.
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 medication to manage (not cure) all the diseases caused by the food.
In most countries around the world a third of the population or more are already obese and/or sick because of this situation, and it’s getting worse all the time. The more processed food we’re encouraged (fooled) to consume, the sicker we get.
The solution already exists. It’s very simple:
Yes, 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?
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
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 more simple 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.
There’ll be much more information here shortly. At the moment you can use the menu at the top of the page to find our best guides. Oh, 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 LCHF:
About Andreas Eenfeldt, M.D.
During the last seven years Dr. Eenfeldt has authored the biggest health blog in Sweden and a #1 best-selling book on nutrition that’s been translated to eight languages, including English. He may be partly responsible for a recent butter shortage in his home country, and one of his conference presentations on LCHF has been viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube.
Dr. Eenfeldt spent twelve years working as a doctor and eight of those years as a family physician, treating patients with LCHF diets. During that time he witnessed tremendous success for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes. But despite that, helping one person at a time couldn’t change the status quo. So in 2015 he quit.
Now he runs the fast-growing health site DietDoctor.com as the founder and owner, together with 16 co-workers.
Dr. Eenfeldt lives in Karlstad, Sweden with his girlfriend and their two young daughters. He spends just about all his waking hours either with his family or working on DietDoctor.com.

The Food Revolution
This talk by me summarizes the ongoing revolution. How we realize old mistakes and the most effective way to improve our health and weight.
Do you want to help change the world? There are many things you can do. Here are a few suggestions:
- Be a positive example and inspire the people around you (answering their questions is more effective than trying to persuade someone who isn’t ready).
- Learn more. These blogs are a good place to start, and there are some excellent books (1, 2, 3) on the subject.
- Teach others: Comment on blogs and discussion forums and in papers, start a blog yourself, prepare a lecture, talk to your doctor.
- Feel free to spread the link to dietdoctor.com and the talk on YouTube above. You may also use anything you find on this page in whatever way you like.
