My Health Markers After Eight Years on LCHF

Scary stuff - or?

Scary stuff – or?

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 →

Vacation time

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!

Encouraging Reviews

kvalitet-650x277

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:

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 →

No More Doc

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.

Coming Up Next Week: Obesity Conference in Philadelphia!

asbp_logo

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!

ASBP Spring Obesity Conference 2014

Obviously there’ll be reports here from the conference.

Another Record

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…
