Becoming a Low-Carb Doctor – Watch the Full Interview with Dr. Brukner


4.8 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star5%3 star5%2 star2%1 star0%39 ratings1,563 viewsDr. Peter Brukner is the team physician for the Australian Cricket Team. He was overweight and pre-diabetic, but a few years ago he got interested in low carb after listening to professor Tim Noakes.

The problem? He’d been a advocate of “carb loading” and a high-carb diet for ages. So what should he believe in now? There was only one thing to do – an N=1 experiment that was totally useless… unless of course if the one was himself.

This interview has been for members only – and very popular with a 4.8 out of 5 star average rating. Now everyone can watch the entire interview above.

The Big Fat Fix Movie Released Today!

The Big Fat Fix, the excellent new documentary about the failed low-fat ideas of the past and how to really get healthy, is now released.

The last word in the fight against dietary misinformation.
– Men’s Health
Both Donal O’Neill and Dr. Aseem Malhotra star in this film.

Donal is the brain behind the movie Cereal Killers which has been called “One of the top 10 movies that could change the world”, and Dr. Aseem is known as “a leading global voice in the fight against obesity.”

Now they’ve teamed up and the result is a great independent movie – financed via a successful Kickstarter campaign. I highly recommend it.

The movie goes way beyond the benefits of low-carb and high-fat diets, into other lifestyle factors that are also important for a long, happy, healthy life.

You can buy it for streaming ($4.99) or download here:

Diet Doctor Is Now The Largest Low-Carb Site in the World

Traffic ranks for popular low-carb sites

Traffic ranks for popular low-carb sites (lower number = larger site)

Diet Doctor keeps growing fast, and today we hit a milestone. We’re now the largest low-carb site in the world.

For many years Atkins.com used to be the largest low-carb site in the world. This was unfortunate, as the Atkins corporation’s business model is basically selling “low-carb” chocolate bars and other junk products. They have likely caused as much damage to the low-carb movement as any opponent ever could.

I believe there’s a need for a trustworthy low-carb site, one with no ads, products or sponsorships. A site that makes low carb simple, and empowers people to revolutionize their health. That’s what we aim to provide. Thanks for all the support!
