Updated design

No – you’re not imagining it. This site looks a bit different today.

  • We’ve updated the design, especially on mobile devices. The site is now “responsive”, meaning that the text and pictures should be the right size no matter what screen size you use – from mobiles, through tablets to big screen computers.
  • We’ve also changed the font to a more modern looking sans serif font.

Please leave a comment if you encounter any bugs or things that do not look good yet. And of course: feel free to say what you think about the changes.

World’s Biggest LCHF Health Summit Coming!

cda3dd0b018580d9a9a9c13af29899f3

This is going to be exciting. Late next month (20-22 February), the world’s biggest summit on LCHF diets and health will take place.

The meeting is in Cape Town, South Africa where such food has become extremely popular in recent years. This after the legendary professor of exercise and sports medicine Tim Noakes attracted much attention in the country with his complete about-face in recommending such food – not only for weight loss and diabetes but also for many endurance athletes.

The gathering of the world’s foremost experts on low-carbohydrate diets is perhaps the biggest ever (with competition only in recent years with ASBP/NMS meetings in the US). I’m in it too:

Do you want to combine a holiday from winter in summer-warm and wonderful Cape Town with learning more about health and weight? Then this conference is for you.

The first two days are primarily directed towards professional health workers – such as physicians, researchers, nurses – while the last day is clearly directed at the public. This means that there will be more medical jargon during the first two days. If you’re fine with that you’re of course welcome during those days too.

Those who don’t want to go all the way to Cape Town will of course see plenty of reports from the summit here at Diet Doctor.

Here’s a look back at some of the highlights from Diet Doctor, the most shocking and the most inspiring news from 2014! Continue Reading →

The Food Revolution – Finally in English!

The Food Revolution

When will it be available in English? I’ve lost track of how many people have asked me about this book.

Almost four years ago my book “The Food rEvolution” was published in Sweden and instantly became a #1 bestseller, staying on top of the charts for quite some time. It ended up selling over 80,000 copies just in Sweden (huge for a small country) and being translated into eight languages.

Finally it’s possible to get it in English as well. If you can stand the total massacre of the title and a few spelling mistakes* (including a prominent error in the first paragraph!) this is a book I’m really proud of. It’s a gem that these publishers handled without much love… or taste. But hey, at least now it’s possible to get it in English too.

This is the story about how the entire world fell for the mistaken fear of fat – and the ongoing disaster it started. It’s also the story of all the people who are waking up and regaining their health and leanness by eating real food again. A story about our Food Revolution.

You can get it on Amazon and if you’re quick you can have a copy before Christmas. Perhaps you deserve it as a gift to yourself?

The Food Revolution on Amazon.com (Europeans can get it quicker from Book Depository in the UK)

I’d love to hear what you think about the book. Feel free to leave a comment!

Holiday Cookies

My three-year-old managed to make these creations with just minimal help from her mother. Then dad brought out the camera.

An almost sugar-free recipe: almond flour, shredded coconut, eggs, butter, saffron, almonds… and a next-to-homeopathic amount of honey (1 tablespoon in a batch of 27 cookies)… from Birgitta Höglund in the holiday post from the other day.

A good option for those who want the occasional cookie without all the bad carbs. Continue Reading →

We had famous guests here on Friday. Two of the founders of Sweden’s LCHF magazine stopped by for dinner – Margareta Lundström and Bosse Zackrisson. In addition, Monique Forslund (holding my daughter Alva in the picture) came. A couple of significant  others (Mats and Mattias) and a few children came along too.

We made a big splash with a three-course meal. Here’s the menu with pictures. Continue Reading →

Try to Get It Right Next Time

1A4A9660-800x529

The world’s largest meeting on diabetes research is over, but next year it will be in Stockholm, Sweden – almost my home town. I’ll be there and my suggestion to the organizers is simple. Try to get it right next time.

At least, do have the courage to discuss all the research showing that today’s lifestyle advice isn’t working for people with diabetes, but instead unfortunately makes people sicker. To ignore this fact is unreasonable and unethical when 5 million people die from their diabetes every year.
