New Fullscreen Recipe Images

We’ve just added a new very cool feature to the site. Selected recipes (among other posts) now have full screen images. You can check out these as examples:

How do you think it looks?

Update: Turns out the headline got to big and obstructed the image on smaller mobile screens. This has now been fixed!

My Big Fat Diet

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are rampant epidemics among the aboriginal communities of Canada. And it all started as they began eating a modern Western diet, full of refined carbohydrates.

This disaster is usually blamed on sedentary lifestyles and “eating too much”. An energy imbalance, as Coca Cola’s staff of propagandists would have you believe.

However, what would happen if an entire town of First Nation people went back to eating the way they used to? A high-fat low-carb diet based on real food? With no exercise or calorie counting program whatsoever?

This is what the Canadian doctor Jay Wortman and a documentary team decided to find out, in the delightful and enlightening movie My Big Fat Diet.

Guess what happened…

Full Movie

Check out the trailer above. The full movie – one of my all-time low-carb favorites – is available on the Diet Doctor membership site (free trial one month) with many other movies, video courses, presentations, interviews, etc.

The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Dr. Jason Fung

Why is the conventional treatment of Type 2 Diabetes an utter failure? Why do we consider it normal that everyone is getting sicker while on conventional treatment? Simple. It’s because we’re treating this common disease completely backwards.

Fortunately there is one doctor who can explain this complicated subject in a remarkably simple to understand and even entertaining way: the Canadian nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung. Here’s another treat for everyone who wants more of his piercing insights.

This presentation – The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes – was recorded earlier this year at the LCHF Convention in South Africa. There are two ways for you to see it online:

Two Options

  1. Sign up for the entire online convention – 30 presentations by the top LCHF experts in the world – for a one-time fee of $69 dollars or $49 dollars using this link. This online convention is highly recommended. Note that every cent goes to the organizers (we get none of it) and any surplus will help them fund future conferences.
  2. See the presentation on the Diet Doctor membership pages. Membership is free to try for a month (then $9 per month, cancel any time). It gives you instant access to video courses, interviews, presentations, Q&A with experts, movies, etc. Fees are used to fund Diet Doctor and keep the site 100% free of ads and corporate interests.

Watch instantly on member site: The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

PS

Don’t have time to see this great presentation or not inclined to use any of the two options requiring sign-up? Do you still want to know what the two big lies are? Here they are: Continue Reading →

Welcome to the New Diet Doctor Site!

New Design

Does this site look different today? You’re not imagining it, we just launched a major ongoing redesign.

For a long time you have told us that it’s too hard to find what you are looking for at DietDoctor. The purpose of the redesign is to make it MUCH easier to find the most important content. Thus we’ve moved the blog away from the Diet Doctor homepage. Instead we devote the main page to links to our best content, so that it’s easy to find.

To find the blog, press “news” in the brand new top menu. There you can also always find links to the blog news page, etc., in the top right corner.

We’re also working on massive redesigns, additions and improvements on our main pages, like those about LCHF, Weight Loss and Diabetes. These updates will go live as soon as they are ready.

Remember this redesign is very much a work in progress. We launch it now fully aware that everything is not perfect yet. We’ll keep improving everything as fast as we can.

Please feel free to leave feedback and suggestions in the comments below.

What do you think about the new site? Is anything not working right? Do you have any improvements you’d like to suggest?

Working Hard

 

Do you wonder why there’s been no updates for a couple of days? It’s because the team and I are working super hard and focused on a major upgrade to the website. I think you will love it (I do).

Coming soon…

Q&A: What Kind of Fasting Should I Do?

Ask Dr. Jason Fung

Do you want to lose weight or improve your diabetes using intermittent fasting? Are you unsure what kind of fasting to try?

My simplified suggestion would be to try “16:8” fasting first, but there are many options and different variants may suit different people best. So let’s see what a real expert suggests.

Dr. Jason Fung, the Canadian nephrologist, is a world-leading expert on intermittent fasting and LCHF, especially for treating people with type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Fung answers questions weekly on our membership site. The most interesting questions and answers so far are now available to everyone. Here’s a few selected questions and answers about what kind of fasting you may want to try.

Different Kinds of Fasting

Are there significant differences in benefits from 24-hour fasting vs. multi-day fasting vs. 16:8 fasting?

Dr. Jason Fung: The main difference, as you may suspect, is that shorter fasting periods are less effective and are usually done more frequently. So a 16:8 fast is often done daily, whereas a 24 hr fasting period is done 2-3 times per week. For more severe insulin resistance, I tend to prescribe longer fasting periods, whereas for maintenance I tend to prescribe shorter ones. Continue Reading →
