“I Got My Life Back!”

Before and after

Before and after

Ingrid tried everything: powder diets, pills and, of course, low-fat foods. But the weight kept creeping up, slowly, and in the fall of 2010 the scale showed 309 lbs. (140 kg). Everything felt heavy. Sugar cravings, hunger and emotional eating were a never-ending nightmare.

In January 2011 she decided to try LCHF. Here’s what happened: Continue Reading →


Pre-Pregnancy Potato Consumption Linked to Gestational Diabetes


A new study shows that women eating a lot of potatoes before getting pregnant have a higher risk of developing gestational diabetes, a form of type 2 diabetes:

The same thing has been shown with regular type 2 diabetes – people eating potatoes more often get that variety of diabetes too.

These, of course, are only statistical correlations, so these studies do not by themselves prove that potatoes cause diabetes. But potatoes certainly contain fast-acting carbs that raise blood sugar. Avoiding those carbs is great for treating type 2 diabetes, so it would not surprise me if it could prevent it as well.

“The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am”

Breast milk is truly an amazing thing, and far beyond anything that we can make to replace it. It even adapts to the specific needs of the baby. I recommend this long fascinating article if you’re at all interested:

The Stranger: The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am

I realize not all moms can breastfeed, and our society is often making it way harder than it should be. I’m just grateful that my two daughters have had the luxury of starting life with long periods of breastfeeding (the first one 20 months, the second still going at 15 months). Something that may have even more benefits than those mentioned in the article.

“This May Have Saved My Life”


Before and after

Karen Melo shared on the Diet Doctor Facebook page what has happened so far in six months with LCHF:

On Facebook

I just wanted to share what a LCHF lifestyle has done for me in six months. 38 lbs (17 kg) lost, PCOS symptoms greatly improved, blood pressure down and signs of inflammation are completely gone! Thank you for the information that you provide on your website!! Many medical and fitness professionals had given me very bad advice for my entire adult life, in part because they didn’t know about or understand PCOS and the impact it has on insulin. Your work in LCHF eating may very well have saved my life. Thank you, sincerely.
