Quick facts about Diet Doctor

A broken world

Something is badly wrong. While the prosperity of the world has never been higher, people are suffering. More and more people – the majority in the Western world – are obese or overweight, and a large proportion are on prescription drugs every day for the rest of their lives.

Every year new people add to the sad statistics. As we get ever richer as a society our health appears to decline. Why is this?

People feel guilt and shame, like if the excess weight, hunger and tiredness was their fault, a moral failing. They count their calories and attempt to eat less food and exercise more, but it’s not working. If only they had more willpower.

Diabetes type 2 – a new epidemic in the history of humankind – will soon reach 500 million people. The death toll will be immense, as will the armies of people suffering the consequences: blindness, dementia, heart disease, cancer. This new disease is considered incurable and the treatment is daily drugs to reduce the symptoms. There is no cure, expert say.

Obesity – another new epidemic soon affecting half the population – is considered almost as incurable. The only effective treatment is said to be bariatric surgery, i.e. surgically removing parts of healthy organs. An operation with a significant risk of resulting in life-long misery and sometimes even death. And a year after surgery the excess weight usually starts returning.

What’s even worse, epidemics of obesity and diabetes are the tip of the iceberg. As these problems spread across the world other diseases soon follow: heart disease, cancer, eating disorders and food addiction, high blood pressure, ADHD, depression and on and on.

Experts still trumpet eating less and exercising more to slow down the epidemics. But that’s what we’ve been saying for 30 years, while the problem has exploded. It’s not working.

It may be even worse. The problem really started to get bad in the early 80s, just when we were told to eat “healthily”, just when the first Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released, and then copied around the world. That’s when the epidemic started.

Possibilities and what’s holding us back

Something is very wrong in the world today. Our bodies are made to stay healthy through our lives, and supply us with the energy to reach our goals and our potential. We can absolutely return to this natural state. With the resources the world has today there should be no stopping us.

This is not about a lack of willpower. You already have all the willpower you’ll ever need.

Imagine a world where all people can feel good in their bodies again, where all kids can run and play without catching their breath every few steps, where there’s no need for mass pill popping, a nation no longer on drugs, where nobody is obsessively counting calories to starve themselves. Where health is normal again. Where we can reach our potential and care for each other. Where we use our willpower for higher purposes, together shaping a better world for our children.

Much of what we need to get there is already known. But it’s not that simple. The food industry profits from selling cheap, low-fat, highly processed, nutritionally depleted and addictive food. And we’re advised to eat at least every three hours. The pharmacological industry profits by selling daily medications to temporarily reduce the symptoms of all the diseases caused by the food.

Junk-to-Drugs

These are trillion dollar industries. There’s a lot of money to be made keeping you sick.

The truth is obscured by corporate propaganda, companies selling junk food and pills, using lies and misinformation, to the benefit of their shareholders, but to the detriment of humanity. It’s obscured by government ineptitude, allowing corporations to rule via armies of high-payed lobbyists, while relying on old experts who are often stuck in failed preconceptions, unable to update their thinking. That is, if the experts are not simply funded by corporations too.

Just as an example, it was recently exposed how Coca-Cola spend tens of millions of dollars buying the loyalty of government health experts and scientists as well as high-profile bloggers and personal trainers. To not mention the dangers of drinking sugar. To keep quiet about it. That’s the reality behind their slogan about “open happiness” and billions of dollars of feel-good advertising. How is obesity, disease and lies the road to happiness?

It may seem impossible to change this. What can one person do? Not much. But together, using modern tools… if we have the will, we can change anything.

Towards the solution

What would you do if there was a clear way to make the world a better place?

diamond3
Most of the truth we need is already out there, it is already known, many are already using it with fantastic results. What’s needed is to find this truth and make it as simple as possible to use. To empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

This can’t be achieved using old thinking, we’ll have to question everything. And it can’t be achieved by selling a magic product, a pill or a packaged food product or by financing from the corporations who are profiting from the status quo. That’s the thinking that got us into this mess.

Here at Diet Doctor we want to be a part of the solution. That’s why we’ve decided to take no money from industry, sell no food, no supplements, no other products and to have no ads.

Instead we’re fully funded by the people, via an optional membership (free trial available).

Everything necessary we give away for free to the world, even without signing up. We’re focusing on free simple guides, recipes and step-by-step plans, providing everything you need to lose weight without hunger or to cure diabetes type 2.

Welcome to Diet Doctor. Let us tell you more about reality and some of the misconceptions that stop people from achieving health and happiness.

The solution

The solution to the obesity and diabetes epidemics already exists. It’s very simple:

LCHF Food

That’s basically it. Although there are details too: if you want to lose weight effortlessly or improve your diabetes you should probably make a special effort to drastically reduce the carbohydrates, especially sugar and processed starch (like flour).

Natural fat, like butter? Eating that is fine. Red meat? That’s fine too. Calories? That’s just another, bizarre, name for food. Eating real food is perfectly fine, as long as you are hungry. Counting calories and ignoring your hunger is an eating disorder.

Exercise? That’s great for your health and well-being, but it’s never going to make you thin. You cannot outrun a bad diet.

There’s only one long-term solution that is truly effective. Eat real food, when you are hungry.

Why change is so slow

So if the problem is so huge, and the solution already exists – why is the problem not solved already?

TIME: Eat ButterBecause of inertia, old dogma and vested interests. Primarily it’s just hard for us humans to change our minds. It takes time.

The mistaken fear of natural fat is still just about alive, like some kind of half-dead zombie – even though modern science has thoroughly disproven it. The magazine TIME even put this fact on their cover in 2014. Fearing natural fat leads to even more high-carb, high-sugar junk food – so it’s been a really bad idea.

There is also massive money to be made from the status quo. The entire food and pharmaceutical industries depend on it, and they employ armies of lobbyists and even researchers.

The food industry wants to divert the blame from their own bad food (the real problem) to their consumers. Thus their emphasis on calorie counting, “personal responsibility” and exercise.

The pharmacological industry does not want people to get well. It’s easy to understand why. That would put them out of business.

The government would love to improve the health of the people, but official agencies move slowly and they are easy prey for trained lobbyists and influencers. Just look at Michelle Obama’s sadly failed “Let’s Move” campaign. As soon as the junk-food industry got involved it all turned into empty pep talk, with no real change that anybody truly believes in.

Bringing the solution to the people

Paulos Hughes
As no solution is coming from the top, it can only come from the bottom, from people like you and me. And it will, because nothing is so powerful as an idea whose time has come.

The Diet Doctor organization wants to speed this process up and we have a plan to do it. We want to make it much simpler to understand and get inspired to revolutionize your health. And then for you to help other people – your friends, family, etc. – to revolutionize their health.

Then the cycle can repeat, at ever greater scale.

Use the menu at the top of the page to find our best guides. And don’t forget to sign up for our free weekly newsletter. If you do it now you also get access to a free video course on eating a low-carb high-fat diet.

    I have prepared the keto garlic bread and the naan. They were both awful, the breads are very dark, unlike the pictures you have. Both breads were also wet in the middle, one being baked and the other fried. I baked the garlic bread longer than suggested, sounded hollow prior to removing from oven, and fried the naan longer than suggested due to the wetness but that didn't help.
    I use the flours suggested and the psyllium husk powder (which is dark) . what could be wrong? I made sure all directions were followed. The items look so good in the pictures so I was very disappointed. I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions?

    Hi,
    This is Anurag from India.
    I have been recently diagnosed with diabetes and I dont want to take medicines and so am planning to go for LCHF diet. Your site has given me a lot of confidence.
    Though, I have certain confusion in my mind and would request your help to clarify the same.
    I went through a book- Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for reversing diabetes. He has mentioned that insulin insensitive arises due to intramyocellular lipid accumulation in the cells and hence a complete reduction in fat intake recovers us from this insulin insensitivity. Once insulin insensitivity is removed, we should be able to eat as much carb we want.
    Really need to your help to fix my mind on the right diet.
    Looking forward to your support.

    Thanks and Regards
    Anurag.

    Is it ok to drink (for bullion) a level teaspoon of GLUTEN FREE commercial chicken stock in hot water. I'm a Coeliac.
  9. Scott
    I had no idea I could eat dinner and not be hungry again before bedtime!!! But now, on LCHF, I eat just twice a day, at 10am and 4pm, so I can keep my type 2 insulin down as long as possible. And I'm never hungry! My blood sugar has responded marvelously with no meds. AND I've lost 10 pounds in just a couple of weeks! I have a new life!

    Keep doing what you're doing...the world needs you!

    Dear Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt,

    I'm a health provider and originally migrated from India to the US. In the past 10 years, I have been alarmed at the rate of increase in Type 2 diabetes in all parts of India, really devastating the health of millions of people. I would like to help them. As your member, I myself went on the LCHF diet two years ago and lost 14 lbs and effectively kept off diabetes. I was warned by my doctor earlier that I was getting pre-diabetic. I'm now enjoying a healthy weight and energy levels. I want to help people in India with the LCHF diet. Unfortunately people in India switch from a rice-based diet to a wheat-based diet when they get diabetes (as prescribed by their diabetologists and dieticians). Almost every major city has a diabetic center on every major street but the progression of the disease continues unabated. People are told that once they get diabetes, they can only manage the disease through drugs, insulin and "diet and exercise". Unfortunately this model is not working. I see some friends and family die in their 50's. I have developed many LCHF Indian recipes, especially vegetarian ones (many Indian are strict vegetarians) and would like to share those online. I'm reaching out to you to find out if somehow I can collaborate with you for the Indian market? Can someone reach out to me at my email? Thank you!

    Is this LCHF good for people who have had weight loss surgery regains?
  17. Claire
    Mine is a question rather than a comment. I've started the 16:8 fast and the low card diet 5 days ago and find it extremely easy to follow. Before the fasting, I usually started the day with a cup of green tea to which I added lemon juice, fresh ginger, cinnamon and honey. I now just drink the green tea but would going back to my usual brew in the morning spoil the fast even if i did not add the honey?

    What would be the difference between the Keto6 meal plan and the LoCarb/Keto 2 week challenge? The goals seem the same, yet the menus are quite different.

    I had gastric sleeve surgery 2 months ago but have only lost 25 lbs. Can this diet help? We are supposed to eat less than 500 calories, get in 60 to 80 g of protein and less than 15 g of carbs. As well as 64 or more of water/ liquids
  25. James Lipari
    Dear Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt I am a type II diabetic and I have been doing the HFLC diet for about 10 days. I am sold on the new way of eating, but I have one problem that I hope you can help me with. And that is keeping my blood sugar numbers at a healthy level throughout the day, especially at night. I stopped taking insulin about 10 days ago, after taking 50 units at bedtime. By that time, my blood glucose numbers were so low (50s, 60s, for example) that I was eating a slice of wheat bread, or some kind of veggies like cut green beans to avoid a problem with dangerously low blood glucose over night. In addition, during the day, my blood glucose numbers between meals get very low. So my question is how do I stay on the HFLC foods and maintain a healthy blood glucose number throughout the day and overnight? What foods should I eat, especially after my last meal? In the morning my blood glucose is relatively high, but then drops during the day because I am eating so little carbs. I am sure that I am not in ketosis yet, even though I have lost about 10 pounds. I love your videos and really believe that this is the first time I have enjoyed eating for many years.

    Hi there,

    I would like someone knowledgeable to comment on this blog post about the seven countries study that Ancel did. https://deniseminger.com/2011/12/22/the-truth-about-ancel-keys-weve-a... Because from what i gathered from the post, the author is saying that there is an upward trend when all the 22 countries was considered in the study. There are also other parts of the post which seemed too complex with all the scientific references and interpretation of data. Is someone here knowledgeable enough to tell me what's the final conclusion on the seven countries study?
