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.

Use the menu at the top of the page to find our best guides. And remember 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.

    Have been on a ketogenic diet since April. I have lost 17kg. My liver enzymes are normal. My TGO was high. My cholesterol is all normal as is my triglycerides level. Blood glucose is fine. Glycated Hemoglobin has dropped from borderline pre-diabetic. I have never felt better and I still enjoy my booze. This really is a life changer and it pains me to see the offerings in supermarkets and how much junk is consumed. Especially with “healthy” labels. Great site. Keep,up the good work.

    I came across the diet doctor site 2 years ago when in 1 week I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and cancer. I was inspired by everyone on here and decided to try it out, what had I to lose.
    2 years on I have reversed my diabetes, lost 70 pounds and so far no recurrence of the cancer. I don't take any medication and I haven't felt this well in years. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

    Dear DD team,

    Thank you for freeing me from food.

    I have been hungry for as long as I can remember. Five weeks on LC and I feel in control of what, when and how much I eat.

    I cannot tell you how liberating it is. What a gift you have given me. Thank you DD team.

    Can you please add a way to disable the pictures of the food when printing recipes.
    It takes up a lot of page space, needlessly pushing instructions and ingredients onto a second page and wasting ink printing the images and paper.

    Also being able to add recipes to the shopping list but not the print them out for when your redoing recipes would be nice to have and being able to add a recipe to lunch the day after without having to go through the search option.

I started on low carbs diet & exercise a week ago & now feeling lethargic, headaches, etc and was ready to give up. But since I read up on diet doctor I strongly want to continue. Thank you diet doctor. I have joined for membership too.

    I have enjoyed the program and have lost approximately 20 pounds in a month, however I have been plagued with constipation and my doctor insists I eat more fiber. Is there a High fiber version of a no-carb diet?
    Thank you
  13. Pamela
    I would like to add another option to Ginger's request to suspend photos. However, I don't mind the pictures, helps me to see what the meal should look like but after 20 weeks and 40 pounds weight loss (so happy and feeling healthy like never before) I already have quite a file of recipes. I am probably doing something wrong but so far haven't managed to figure out how to just print the new ones. I have been throwing away a lot of paper! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I agree with Ginger. The thing that is annoying is that I have to print out photos that take up so much ink and all I need is the recipe. I can see the photo on the internet, but I still like to have the recipes in print when I am cooking.

    I also agree with what she said about adding recipes to the shopping list. That would be a great idea if it can be done.

    Love this site and the inspiration it gives me to stick with it.

    Hi Diet Doctor Team

    In late 2014 or early 2015 you published a set of vegetarian recipes. They are good and I saved them to use but I failed to note how many servings there are for some of them (they varied) and I'm now having to estimate what 'feels' the right amount when I cook them.

    Although some of them are still on the site, our favourite - 'Vegetable Spaghetti with mushroom and blue cheese sauce' seems to have disappeared from the site completely. I cannot locate it anywhere, in any guise, not even in the DD archives. Can you help, please? Thanks, Miriam.

    I started changing the way I ate on July 17, 2017, weight in at 282 lbs. Basically low carbs and lower portions.
    Then in Sept of this year, I started researching the keto diet. To me it's not a diet it's a life choice. On Sept 20, 2017 I weight in at 248 lbs. I haven't weight that little since 2004. I have a ton of energy, I don't fall asleep driving home from work anymore.
    Once I hit 180lbs I'm going shopping. Until then I'm wearing very baggie clothes. Also I started last week I rode a bike 2 times for 30 mins. It's was not easy at first because I was very skeptical, how can fat make u loose fat? Now I just know it works.

    Just for information.
    I just downloaded an Apple App called “One Sweet App”. It’s web site is
    http://sugarcoateddoc.com/the-app/ I’m not sure if it is only available in the Canadian Apple App Store . The developers are Natalie Bibeau, and from the University of Toronto Jodi Bernstein. The App shows the amount of sugar in verious food products sold here in our grocery stores. The Documentary “Sugar Coated” I am looking forward to seeing. Thanks Mary Jane

    For example day two.com has research on personal glucose response to individual foods. Some may have a glucose spike with salmon while others may not. Your gut micro biome tells the tale. PhD Eran segal and team have published several cutting edge papers on I individual response to foods.
