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 high percentage of them on prescription drugs every day for the rest of their lives.

Every year more people are added to the sad statistics. As we get increasingly richer as a society, our health appears to be declining. Why is this?

People feel guilt and shame, as if the excess weight, hunger and tiredness were 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 impact 500 million people. The death toll will be enormous, 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, experts say.

Obesity – another new epidemic that will soon include 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. This operation carries a significant risk of life-long misery and sometimes even death. And a year after surgery, the excess weight usually starts returning.

And even worse, epidemics of obesity and diabetes are just the tip of the iceberg. As these problems spread across the world, other diseases follow closely behind: 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, and they have been advising this for 30 years as the problems have exploded. These recommendations are 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 throughout 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 everyone can feel good in his or her body again, where all the children can run and play without having to stop and catch 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 himself. 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 pharmaceutical 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 while using lies and misinformation for the benefit of their shareholders but to the detriment of humanity. It’s obscured by government ineptitude, allowing corporations to rule via armies of highly-paid 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 spends 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 are 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 by 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 that 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. We sell no food, no supplements, no other products and we have no ads.

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

We give away for free to the world everything that is necessary, even if someone does not sign up for a membership. 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 additional details, if you want to lose weight effortlessly or to reduce your diabetes you should probably make a special effort to drastically reduce the carbohydrates, especially sugar and processed starch (like flour) that you consume.

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 alive, like some half-dead zombie – even though modern science has thoroughly disproven it. TIME magazine even put this fact on its 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 bad food (the real problem) to their consumers. That is why they they to keep the focus on calorie counting, “personal responsibility” and exercise.

The pharmaceutical 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 are easy prey for professional lobbyists and influencers. Just look at Michelle Obama’s sadly failed “Let’s Move” campaign. As soon as the junk-food industry got involved, everything 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 exactly that. We want to make it very simple for you to understand and get inspired to revolutionize your health. After that, we want you to help other people – your friends, family, etc. – to revolutionize their health.

Then this good cycle can repeat and multiply.

    I was losing weight and loving this program until a few months ago I was told by my Dr that I had to go on statins for high cholesterol and stop eating so much meat and dairy etc. I started feeling worse after awhile and actually gained a little weight back. GOOD NEWS is I didn't take the statins because of the side effects and I told my Dr I would treat it with diet. He is very encouraging and interested. Since then I am back on this site and found Dr. Diamond today. I am ecstatic to hear that people my age with slightly higher cholesterol actually LIVE LONGER! Women's intuition pays off. I will be a member for a long time to SUPPORT YOUR WORK! Thank you for all this information and HOPE!

    Does anyone know any harmful facts about keto diet ?
  6. Maria
    If anyone is interested in more specifics regarding keto/low carb and how that can help during menopause/feeling better in midlife feel free to have a peek at my blog http://www.midlifetothemax.com. I have also published a book (Sailing through Menopause) on the subject where I share my personal story on what it is like to be in menopause. I have read up on and gathered lots and lots of research into the subject of menopause and why ketones make a difference (potentially a huge difference). And I give a little intro into how to start a keto lifestyle.

    I just wanted to get a little help from you all. My husband and I started keto 7 days ago and I weighed in at 246.1 and today I weighed my self and I am 247.6. I was so excited this past week because I followed all the recipes and on some I cut out the butter or olive oil. We are staying under 20 carbs a day . I drink nothing but water daily and drink 120 oz . PLEASE HELP.....

    The statement below is copied and pasted from the site under LOW CARB ALCOHOL.

    Champagne or dry sparkling wine – one glass contains about 1 grams of net carbs.

    I bought a bottle of BELLE BOLLE Moscato Sparkling Rose.
    Although there is no carb or calorie content on the bottle, I searched a few places on the internet like my fitness pal and others that offer carb and calorie counters.

    All of the sites I researched said 4 oz. is 14 g of carbs. 4 ounces is a typical "glass" of wine which is usually about 1/2 of a standard wine glass or flute. I measured my amount of 1/2 glass and it is exactly 4 oz. (one half cup)

    Please comment. I thought I was doing GOOD!
    thank you

    How do you cancel the $9.00 membership? I wrote but no answer and my doctors are sure that my stent would not hold up to all this fat. These ideas make perfect sense to me but can't risk taking a chance of a heart attack

    I was looking through your many amazing recipes and noticed something. The ratings for the desserts are double that of any other recipes. I also noticed on many Keto blog sites, the tendency towards dessert recipes vs "food". Are we that addicted to sugars? Shocking!

    I'm new to Keto and can see I need to make a huge list of tried and true Keto recipes, rich in fats, in order to counter my love of sugar. Seems it will be so easy to slip back into old habits if I don't!

    Hi, I'm a high school student trying out the LCHF diet, and I workout everyday. So far, I have consumed less than 75 grams of carbohydrates per day and increased my fat intake to 40g. My protein intake is about 70g. Am I doing this correctly? What should I change? What should I expect?
    I would really appreciate anyone's advice.

    so this is my first week and nothing is going right trying to make chicken. your shopping list tell me jerk seasoning yet it failed to tell me a liquid. so now what. i messed up for the 3rd times because i never get the correct amount of ingredients.

    Hi, we as a family have started the Keto diet for at least 3 weeks now. Not to lose weight, but because of health problems by my son of 17. He lost weight within a very short time! He got to gain weight instead of losing. Is that also possible by eating Keto? Are there tips for people like us? Most of the information is for people who got to get rid of to much weight.

    Thank you for the information provided on this site. I have been living keto for the past 3 months. Lost over 35 pounds and a1C down from 7.1 to 6.0!!

    I haven't stopped taking my meds yet. My doctor is aware of me doing this and is pleased with the progress. He says that I may be able to lower the meds or get rid of them if I keep on the path I am going.

    Thank you again!

    Hi! I left a comment on your jobs page, trying to be helpful. Later, I needed to either edit or delete it, but 'reported' myself instead of successfully doing so. It was for your Bilingual Translator position. I see you can edit/delete on most pages, but couldn't do so there. Might be nice to have those options on your jobs page, too. If they are there, how? If not, might be good to add:)
  26. Bruce
    I looked up coffee as a good or bad drink in the morning or anytime and found only one video suggesting from a personal point only . It would be nice to have a bit of evidence that my 1.5 cups of coffee in the morning with whipping cream is doing or not doing something to my blood sugars as type 2. Dr Fox was drinking 8 cups per day and stopped ? Any information for diabetics vs healthy individuals is not stated.

    Is there an app coming out soon? Thank you all for the hard work and dedication. As an American, there are literally hundreds of "diets"... yet, through many I tried so hard on, nothing really worked. Our govt. putting false data out and probably for a laundry list of reasons... LCHF has been a blessing.. easy to make recipes, my cravings are literally gone, I feel great, mixed with exercise and when you combine all of this, it equals emotional and physical happiness. Change can be scary, but remember that dreaming turns to doing, doing turns to habit, and habit brings about the goals you are after... healthy habits not unhealthy... good luck and don't give up... 🦋

    Tried to edit my comment on a recipe that came out horrible. I took several screen shots if needed.

    Basically, I am upset and discouraged at the recipes. They are written so poorly and actually contradict instructions in places. Most of the recipes I have tried have come out undercooked or just tasted horrible. The thing is I am not a picky eater. I have read several others comments and found I have lots of company. Thankfully I have found several other web sites for lo carb keto recipes and they have all been delicious. If you really want people to stick with this healing way of eating I don't get why you would be recipes that are obviously thrown together by someone with little to no low carb cooking experience. If it seems I am a little upset you are corr3ect. I am not happy with having to throw out uneaten food in the garbage. This website is 5 stars with great motivational info that I am thankful for. Just seems rather dumb to follow that up with these amateur recipes? What am I missing here?

    here is a bit of proof I think from one of the success stories here:"Hi Andreas!

    (All my adult life I’ve oscillated between being “plump” and downright fat. Being obese takes a toll on self-esteem, body and life. Before my third and last child I tried LCHF with very good results, but during pregnancy fatty foods made me sick and so all the pounds I had lost piled up on me again, and not only because of the growing body inside me.
    Last spring, May 1st to be exact, my new life began. I’m so very happy that I took control again and that you’re here with all this inspiration.
    I follow your site and then another site for recipes. I have bought some cookbooks but I don’t need much more than your tips and advice.
    Since May 1st I’ve lost 66 pounds (30 kg). Without any effort. I don’t have ANY sugar cravings. I, who would pick a fight with my husband if we ran out of candy? Slowly but surely, I’m starting LCHF on my children even though I’m far from there yet. When it comes to myself I’m very strict with very few exceptions and the exceptions I make are planned choices. I feel so much better – body, soul and self-esteem.
    I have a few pounds left to lose, maybe, it depends on what my body wants. Exercise is now more natural and I measure rather than weigh myself. My waist circumference is finally fine! I’m not obese and I’m so very happy. Life IS easier when you’re lighter. This is a lifestyle, and I welcome it forever!
    Sincerely Marie Niklazzon)

    She writes " I follow your site and then another site for recipes." All these recipes but she uses OTHER sites. My guess is she had the same disastrous results as many are getting. I rest my case

  41. Andrea
    I have been following the HFLC DIET since April, I have lost 56 lbs and feel great. My cholesterol is elevated and my doctor keeps pushing Lipitor on me and I keep refusing it. But I am getting nervous about it. I don't drink the bullet proof coffee and I don't always use butter. Is there another way to get it down? Should I worry or is she just uneducated on this subject?

    Hi John J!
    I’m sorry our recipes haven’t turned out for you. We are thankful that you have taken the time to tell us and thereby given us a chance to improve. We are constantly trying to make everything on our site better. We do have more than 400 recipes on our site and many of them have been rated highly by thousands of people, I am sorry you did not like them.

    Best, Kristin

    I agree with John that the recipes are probably the weakest part of the website. Many simply don't work as you can see from the comments yet nothing is done to change them (see cheese puffs). I hesitate to try the recipes as they seem to be translated from Swedish and are not to American taste or measurements or ingredients. Maria Emmerich is my go to for keto recipes. I also like the blogs wickedstuff and nom nom paleo (but have to be careful to stay keto and leave out/substitute ingredients as paleo is not necessarily keto). I think diet doctor should collaborate with Maria!

    I joined a few months ago and have not been able to get into certain sites.
    I really want to do this program successfully;therefore I need to be able to enter all areas of the site.
    I was even willing to join again so that I have full access to all data.
    Please check my membership and if I'm not registered, which you have just confirmed that I
    am, please give me access to all of the info. I'm pretty frustrated at the moment.
    Thank you in advance for checking on my membership and opening up all areas of the site for me to access. If there's a problem, please notify me.

    Hi,
    I would appreciate some feedback on this : http://blog.myfitnesspal.com/science-investigates-fasting-vs-calorie-...

    For me LCHF combined with some intermittent fasting works better than anything else. My LDL is lower than my HDL so I'm not worried about the study mentioned in this article but I am curious to know what the experts on DietDoctor think of it.

    Thank you!

  50. Dirk
    Just watched Fat Chance video. One of the best on dietdoctor because it is from someone who was able to demonstrate how the HFLC approach can really work! Slowly but surely the message is going to get through.

    My wife and I have been slowly migrating from no sugar to a complete HFLC lifestyle with amazing results. It has taken us a few years to get to about 20 gm of carbs per day but our health just keeps on improving. It is so sad to see so many people in our town (dubious honour to have the highest rate of obesity in Australia) struggling to walk around shopping centres carrying massive excess weight. Worse of all, to see the number of doctors and nurses at our local hospital just as overweight!!

    http://www.dietdoctor.com and http://www.intensivedietarymanagement.com have been our greatest source of information and and encouragement.
