Last week we had two planning days for those working on DietDoctor.com and its Swedish version.
At the meeting were my brother Johan, who takes care of IT development, my spouse Kristin, who manages everything and everyone, Inger Swanberg and Marina Yudanov, who, among other things, translate some of the information for DietDoctor.com, Leopold Roos, who moderates the Swedish discussion forum and Bjarte Bakke, who helps as a strategic consultant. A page with a more detailed presentation of everyone will be coming.
After two days of focused planning for the future my brain did hurt a little. But with such a team and so many great ideas we’ll go far.
The goal is set high: Inspiring millions of people to revolutionize their health.
The most extreme LCHF meal that I’ve had in a while was served during the weekend in a restaurant in Warsaw, Poland. I was there to give a talk at the Congress for Medical Students Abroad (for 180 out of 3,000 Swedish medical students abroad), and I went out to dinner with the other speakers.
As an appetizer, I had veal kidneys in clarified butter. Of course I had to try this and it tasted good (a little chewier than expected).
However, this was not the most extreme course on the menu: Continue Reading →
Next year I’ll be giving two talks at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) Spring Conference.
The conference usually has a lot to offer for those interested in non-surgical weight-loss treatment. If you want to travel to Philadelphia on March 12-16th, 2014, you are welcome to join us! Continue Reading →
The interest in the food revolution just keeps increasing.
The Swedish government agency SBU (Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment) released their expert inquiry last week, including the conclusion that a low-carb diet produces more rapid weight loss – and better health markers!
This was a historic day, that will certainly have an impact on the future treatment of obesity in Sweden. As a bonus the news produced a major visitor record for my Swedish blog: over 73,000 visitors in one day. Not bad in a small country!
Above you can see the number of daily visits to Kostdoktorn.se since the start in 2007. The number of visitors is increasing and the website is already one of Sweden’s most read blogs, all categories included. But I think this is just the beginning.
More and more people are spreading the knowledge. Together we’ll make great things happen. In Sweden, and around the world.
Here’s my new home office. I’ve thrown out the chair – instead I just got myself a standing desk. Why? Continue Reading →
A reader sent me this picture, taken during a coffee break at the large European nutrition conference in Leipzig.
The picture above just shows a small part of the table. Here’s all of it: Continue Reading →
I just had to share this graph. It’s from a thank-you mail that the team behind the LCHF movie Carb-Loaded sent yesterday. It shows the progress of their kickstarter to fund the rest of the movie.
If you contributed then this success is partly because of you. And whether you did or not it’s a good example of what we can accomplish together. Now let’s hope the movie turns out great!
Do you like this blog and the Food Revolution video? Then you’ll probably love my book – but it’s not yet available in English. However, if you know German you’re in luck as the German translation has just been released. I just got a copy, it looks very nice.
Feel free to tell any German friends that you might have:
Today is a huge holiday in Scandinavia. Klara and the rest of the family wish you a happy Midsummer!
Here is an update on my daughter Klara, 20 months old. Many people have wondered how she is doing (answer: great) and if she still eats low carb (answer: yes).
Klara still eats like at the time of the 1-year report and about the same as her parents. The main difference is meals at the day care center where there are more exceptions. But it’s a good day care center so at least there’s no low-fat products and very little sugar.
So far, life has been free from sodas, lemonade, cookies and pastry (as well as free from the Swedish grain-based formula). She doesn’t seem to miss sweets and there aren’t any in the house anyway. No jars of store-bought baby food either.
Recently Klara was at a gathering with other children and parents. Most other kids had, for example, cookies and lemonade. Klara had spare ribs, yellow bell-pepper sticks and cherry tomatoes (and water to drink).
Did she get upset asking for cookies instead? No, she happily ate her food. But the kid next to Klara wanted her food instead of crackers. Fortunately there was enough for both of them.
Of course, children never come problem-free, but we’re very fortunate. The most frequent comment from other adults is still the same: Is she always this happy?
It’s easier to be happy when you’re well-fed and not hungry.
