We invite you to join us in this defining struggle for the future. There’s a great conflict in the world, and it will determine our destiny and the lives of the people we love.

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 can't believe that for the low carb catsup, one serving needs a 14 oz can of tomatoes. I think your ingredient list needs to be adjust for one serving. And how much is ONE serving?

    Hello, I am confused, might have missed something. under Nutrition you have (example) the %6 protein %3 carbs then under that you have 8g carbs per serving? Is the carb total the %6 or the 8 in each serving.

    Hello! I have an idea - just needed some children menu, if posible video recipes to make, that they could make themself. I ask because all is for adults, children dont see something special for them to learn. All their friends eat sweets, so its difficult to teach them what is healthy. Thank you so much for all your wonderfull work.

    I have completed the two week challenge & have lost about 5 lbs. without being hungry but my liver AST & ALT are double what they usually are. Sodium & Chloride levels also not in standard range. Is this normal when starting this diet? Please advise - thank you.
  8. Nick
    I haven't started the diet yet but plan to soon - I want to clear up a couple of questions.

    1. With the coffee recipe on this site can I use a low carb sugar substitute like coconut sugar or
    zylotol or would this undermine the results.

    2. Is there no snacking between meals?

    Thank you

    I would like to point that this diet is very likely to promote kidney stones because of the growth of the acids in the body. Please monitor your health status at prior on this diet.

    Re: the recent article you posted, 'Why you shouldn’t exercise to lose weight':

    At the end, the author states, 'The researchers behind the study found that people who have had success losing weight share a few things in common: They weigh themselves at least once a week. They restrict their calorie intake, stay away from high-fat foods, and watch their portion sizes. They also exercise regularly.'

    Does the Diet Doctor team endorse the above conclusion? If so, why am I paying for membership of DD and not signing up with Weight Watchers?

  11. Nick Waugh
    Rather that removing my comment (criticising that fact I have received no reply to a simple set of questions,) , wouldn't it have been better to just answer my questions?
  12. Mohammad
    Indeed, I believe that this is the one of the best site ever needed for this sick world, as it's profound message is very informative, which is very essential tool to live our lives by improving each and everyone's health with nutritional foods. I do appreciate the Diet Doctor (personally to Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt) for dedication to make possible this message to reach out each and everyone in this world.

    Best regards,

    Hi, I am a 38y/o male, diabetic type 2 and have being following your recipes, advises and have made up my own recipes counting carbs etc, I'm really impressed with the results with only a little more than 3 months. I have lost 30+ pounds and went from 44 - 40 waist approximately and i keep losing weight in a healthy rate, my doctor always congratulates me on my sugar levels, so for all that, a HUGE THANK YOU, you guys are lifesavers, specially because most of the info regarding this was given out free. Just wanted to share that.

    Dear Diet Doctor
    I am 3 months into my Low Carb High Fat Diet
    And I have just had my 3 month bloods done
    I am thrilled to say that my Triglicerides which where off the chart they where so high are down well into normal figures, first time in many many years.
    I am no longer diabetic and I am off my Metformin , I have just had the lowest blood sugar readings in 14 years.
    My fatty liver readings are improved and moving in the right direction
    My HDL readings are up
    My LDL is slightly raised, still in normal figures, but my GP told me to expect that reading at first and that that reading will improve next time.
    And I have lost 7 kilos, I didn,t do the diet for weight loss, with Hashimotos I had got used to a stable, overweight body weight. I was given this diet from my uk GP to help heal my ailing body , she was the first Dr to understand what was happening to me and treat me as a whole person, she diagnosed Metabolic Syndrome. I had high Triglicerides, high blood pressure, heart issues, non alcoholic fatty liver ready for scarring and I was glucose intolerance which led to my type 2 diabetes. I am thrilled to see my body recovering after 14 years of being so ill. thank you all for this wonderful site that has kept me focused and the wonderful recipes...who could have guessed that I would start to enjoy cauliflower in its many guises lol 😀
    Thank you all
    And to anyone wondering will this work for their health and weight?
    Well yes it does! Carbs and sugars are poisons to our bodies.
    Happy getting well and losing weight all

    I know to focus on eating fat and 20 grams carbs. how many grams of fat should i be eating a day exactly?
  26. Andrea
    Good Afternoon. I have read and re-read this site and listened to videos and I have a question that does not fit in the scenarios mentioned. If a person is NOT over weight, does not eat junk, has high sugar, fasts ocassionally, and sugar is high how do they address the insulin issue? Choosing low carb, sugar free diets is not resolving the high sugar because its high even when they fast. How does one address the insulin resistance problem minus diet - what should the protocol be because the doctors are only prescribing metformin since diet is not the issue and weight is not the issue and no family history.

    I started the 2 week challenge on Sunday.. that night I ate the two burger patties with cabbage and was extremely full. The next day I had half the left overs for breakfast ( one patty and half cabbage) and the othe half for lunch. I then had the serving of Salmon for dinner... the only things I drank all day was a black coffee and water.. the next morning I weighed myself and I had gained 1.6kgs.. I am extremely stress as if this continues I will be 6-7 kgs heavier by the end of the week.. I did not have breakfast this morning

    Sorry , but the mailing part is just done for the first two week plan. When you use member diet plans then you have to go back to that specifik plan to follow it. If you customize a plan that plan will stay changed.

    Hello Dietdoctor team, I started my membership nearly two weeks ago and before started the diet I was investigating a bit, reading the website and others too, I am happy to go ahead but I have read that you need to know your macros in order to do the diet properly, and after I calculate that, I came across with the fact that my protein intake should be about 60 grs per day, alongside with the carbs intake as 20 grs, fat 110 grs per day, How do I calculate my intakes if I want to follow one of the recipes, as these only represents the nutrition facts in %????? Thank you soo much for your help,

    I have a general question about Extended Fasting (this is not seeking medical advice for any particular patient). During extended fasting, a full week into said (only taking water and vitamins), after blood sugar levels are expected to drop that first week, would there be any likely reason if blood sugars then raised up during the second week and remained high? Just a theoretical example: blood sugars were 200 before starting extended fasting, then dropped to 100 during the first week, but then raised back up to 150-200 during the second week? Again, this does not pertain to blood sugar fluctuations during the first couple of days but rather in the timeframe mentioned and not being on any medications.
  42. Johnathan
    Add in that theoretical person being a type 2 diabetic (but controlled enough to no longer be on medications).
