A meal-planning and shopping-list tool

Most members want a tool that makes meal planning and shopping easier. We have already decided to make such a tool and here is how it could work:

Do you want to plan for a week or just for a day? You decide. Add meals to your plan by clicking the recipes you want. When you are done planning, the tool automatically creates a shopping list for you.

It will take time to create this tool but we’ll start the planning for it during this month. What do you want from the meal-planning and shopping-list tool? Let us know.

Behind the Scenes: Making Products You Love

Team Diet Doctor

Why must low carb be made simple? And what does love have to do with it?

Low carb must be made simple

As you probably know, Diet Doctor exists to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health. Our first mission on this long, exciting, journey is to make low carb simple.

Today, low carb is hard due to three main forces. First, there’s an immense amount of misinformation about food and health. Second, the food environment is full of processed junk. Third, changing habits and beliefs is challenging.

The result? More than a billion people are obese, over 400 million have diabetes, and no one knows how many suffer in other ways. This totally sucks.

But, we don’t have to accept this situation – we can do something about it. What would happen if we made low carb simple for everyone, everywhere?  Continue Reading →

The Purpose of Diet Doctor


So what is the purpose of the DietDoctor site? What are we trying to achieve?

In this presentation, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, the founder of Diet Doctor, talks about how our long-term goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health. The main focus for the near future is to make low carb simple.

You can watch a segment from the talk above (transcript).

Learn much more about our mission here: About Diet Doctor

As mentioned in the video above we’re fully funded by the people. When the presentation was recorded a few months ago we already had almost 14,000 people supporting us – quite amazing! That number is now just about to pass 17,000.

We use all revenue to help us reach our purpose. As a result, we keep expanding what we can do and hiring more great people to work with us towards our goal. A huge thank you to all our supporters for making this dream possible.

The Diet Doctor Purpose: How Would You Like to Contribute?

How would you like to contribute to the Diet Doctor cause? We asked our members and got more than 2,000 replies. Here are the results:

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.

The difference we want to make, our purpose, is this:

Empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

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!

What One Word Best Describes DietDoctor.com?

What one word best describes DietDoctor.com? We asked our members and got more than 800 replies. Here are the results:

one-word-survey

Please note! When we ask member questions we normally use multiple choice questions. However, this question was free text only. Of the “Other” words people used the most common were “Simple”, “Health”, “Challenging”, and “Enlightening” (about 2% of the answers each). Close to 0% were negative.

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 →
