The Diet Doctor purpose

As you can see, nearly all members apparently know what the Diet Doctor cause is. This is awesome as the cause is massively important to us – the reason we go to work in the morning.

Diet Doctor isn’t a “normal” company. We don’t exist to make as much money as possible, we don’t believe in that. We have no investors, nobody who needs their money back with interest, so we can take an extremely long-term view. We’re a purpose-driven company like SpaceX and Tesla, meaning we exist to make a difference.

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

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.

Diet Doctor’s Values

It seems to us that members believe Diet Doctor provides relevant, trustworthy and inspiring information, and that we help people improve their lives. That’s awesome!

One of the reasons this feels good is that the words used by our members are similar to our company values. At Diet Doctor we have four of these: Continue Reading →
