What New Feature Would Make You Use the Membership Every Day?

Members want meal plans with shopping lists

Meal plan?

What new feature would make you visit our membership site every day?

We asked our members this week and here are the most asked-for features:

1. Meal plans

Members want lots of meal plans of different types, tailored to their low-carb lifestyle, intermittent-fasting, keto, vegetarian, and dairy-free for example, with ready-made shopping lists.

We have been working on this for months and in January your meal-plan dreams will come true! And, later in 2017, members will be able to design their own personalized meal plans too, and shopping lists will be automatically created.

2. A tracking tool

Members want to track their progress, for example their weight, waist circumference, blood sugar, and carbohydrate intake.

We too like the tracking-tool idea, however making an awesome one is hard. What’s the main reason you want a Diet Doctor tracking tool when similar tools already exists? Please tell us in the comments below.

3. A forum

Members want to connect with other low carbers, for example through a forum.

We also want to make this happen, but we’re not sure about the forum idea. Is there a better way? If you have an idea, please tell us in the comments below.

Thank you for your help

We appreciate you taking the time to tell us what you want. Every month, we make decisions about what to work on next, and your suggestions help us make better decisions.

Diet Doctor is completely free of ads, products for sale, and sponsorships. Instead, we’re 100% funded by the people through our optional membership.

BMJ Stands Behind Nina Teicholz’ Critique of the US Dietary Guidelines


Here’s another victory for science over dogma. Today, the British Medical Journey has again decided to stand behind science writer Nina Teicholz’ peer-reviewed study from 2015, in which the conclusion was that the American dietary guidelines were founded on a weak scientific foundation, and still fail to be up-to-date with the best science.

Teicholz’ article was heavily criticized by old-school scientists – and 180 angry ones even demanded that the BMJ should retract it. After two independent experts reviewed it again, they have concluded that it is “within the realm of scientific debate”:

We stand by Teicholz’s article with its important critique of the advisory committee’s processes for reviewing the evidence, and we echo her conclusion: ‘Given the ever-increasing toll of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and the failure of existing strategies to make inroads in fighting these diseases, there is an urgent need to provide nutritional advice based on sound science.’
– Fiona Godlee, BMJ Editor in Chief

Searching for the X Factor

Young Boy Looking Through Binoculars Hiding in Grass

Hyperinsulinemia plays the dominant role in provoking obesity and fatty liver disease, but what causes it?

Insulin is intimately related to our diet, so that was naturally the first place to look. Highly refined and processed carbohydrates, such as sugars, flour, bread, pasta, muffins, donuts, rice and potatoes are well known to raise blood glucose and insulin production. This became known as the carbohydrate-insulin hypothesis, and forms the rational basis for many of the low-carbohydrate diets such as the Atkins diet.

These are not new ideas, but very old ones. Continue Reading →


“Had to Tell the World About It!”

Before and after

Before and after

In order to manage his blood sugar and weight, Mark had to follow a low-carb low-fat diet that left him with intense cravings and no success. Then one day a friend of his posted her dramatic transformation on Facebook, and said that she’d been able to lose weight with help from the Diet Doctor site.

He checked out the site, and thought that it made sense! Of course one has to eat more healthy fats to stay satiated. So he decided to give it a go: Continue Reading →


Is It Insulin or Calories that Make Us Gain Weight?

4.6 out of 5 stars5 stars78%4 stars13%3 stars4%2 stars0%1 star3%132 ratings4,596 views
What really matters for weight loss? Calories in and calories out, or are our bodies’ weight carefully regulated by hormones, such as the fat-storing hormone insulin?

In this presentation from the 2015 LCHF Conference in Cape Town I describe why the second explanation – about hormones – makes much more sense. And why the first one – about calories – is a simplistic description that completely fails to address the cause of obesity.

Is Gary Taubes Vindicated?


Gary Taubes, one of the true pioneers of LCHF and best-selling author of Good Calories, Bad Calories, was publically ridiculed in 2002 for writing that obesity isn’t about a caloric imbalance, and that fat is not dangerous.

Fourteen years later, Taubes is still somewhat of a heretic. However, slowly but surely, at least some of his ideas are entering the mainstream. Has Taubes even become vindicated? Here’s a new and interesting article on the topic by the man himself, about his experiences:

The Vindicated: ‘Nutrition Heretic’ Gary Taubes on the Long Road Back From a Big, Fat Public Shaming

To insist that obesity is caused by consuming too many calories is as inane as it would be to say that poverty, for instance, is caused by earning too little money. It confuses a description with an explanation and is [a] profoundly inexcusable error.
