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 →
A new little “Diet Daughter” arrived yesterday. All went fine.
Vacation on Gotland, Sweden, includes a traditional visit to Sysne fishing village. So even this year.
Here’s this year’s fish platter, which was enjoyed by the sea: Continue Reading →
In the summer of 2006, I started eating an LCHF diet and since then I have continued to do so. It has now been eight years and I decided it was time for a thorough checkup.
According to certain fat and meat phobics, I should have been dead a long time ago. Personally, I’m planning to hang in there for about 50 more years. So who’s going to be right?
Here’s the result from my recent blood work: Continue Reading →
Here’s Klara and her dad on vacation on Gotland, Sweden. It wasn’t very hot the first few days, but then it got better and the beautiful Swedish summer arrived!
What a big Easter Egg. The Easter Bunny was here and left a traditional Swedish Easter egg for Klara, 2 years old.
What was inside the egg at the Diet Doctor family residence? Continue Reading →
How did I do in my attempt at representing the Swedish LCHF movement at the obesity conference in Philadelphia recently? Pretty good, if you can trust the reviews I was just sent in an email.
Here’s what the participating physicians (and others) thought about my two presentations. Summarizing reviews as PDF files:
- Update from Sweden Regarding Low-carbohydrate, High-fat Diets
- Weight Control: A Question of Calories or Insulin?
Comments such as “The best speaker I’ve ever seen” and “Will stick in my brain forever” are encouraging. Not everyone was quite as positive, but even the slightly critical ones were nicer than my presentation coach Pontus (he probably would have said that they don’t know any better).
The lectures will hopefully be available online in the future, and you’ll be able to read about it here on the blog when it happens. Continue Reading →
It’s time to say goodbye to Doc. When I started discussing the low-carb diet on the internet in 2005-2006 I called myself “Doc”. The moniker has stayed with me, even after I “came out” with a Q & A column under my own name on another Swedish low-carb forum in February of 2007, and then on my Swedish blog in December 2007.
Now the time has come to end the tradition of using “Doc” as my signature in the comments. It is passed its sell-by date and may be confusing for new readers. From now on I plan to answer only as Andreas Eenfeldt.
If you too are thinking about changing your own name when you comment – for example for an increased transparency and credibility – I’m all for it.
Next week I’ll be in Philadelphia for the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) Spring Conference (obesity doctors).
It’ll be my fifth year attending the conference, and the interest in a low-carb diet as a treatment for obesity is clearly growing every year. Having pro-low-carb Dr. Eric Westman as new president for the ASBP doesn’t hurt either.
This year will be the first time that I’ll be presenting myself. I’ll do two talks, 45 minutes each. One is about insulin and weight regulation, the other about the reasons behind the extraordinary popularity of low-carb diets in Sweden.
If you want to travel on short notice to Philadelphia on March 12-16th, 2014, you are welcome to join us!
Obviously there’ll be reports here from the conference.
The number of visitors to DietDoctor.com just keeps increasing. In January we had over half a million visitors for the month!
Specifically, the number of visitors was 510,000, which is up 153% from the same period last year.
Welcome to all new readers!
The original Swedish version of DietDoctor.com, Kostdoktorn.se, broke a new visitor record with over a million visitors, making it one of the biggest blogs in Sweden. This English version is growing faster though…
