About Diet Doctor

Regaining health in a sick world requires thinking and acting differently. It requires trusting not in corporate propaganda or old misinformation, but in nature. In the power of your own body to return to its natural state, given the right environment.

Our mission is to find the truth about health and supply tools for those who want to free themselves. Thus empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.


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 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.


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?

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:


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.

    Hi! I´m a medical student from Chile, and I´m very interested in the LCHF diet. I´m doing it myself and I've lost already 7 kg. Thank you very much Dr! I've also convinced some of my friends and family to do it.

    But I have a cuestion regarding Kidney stones and LCHF. I've read that it is possible to have an inkreased risk of developing them on low carb diets. What is your opinion on that? And what can we do to prevent the formation of these stones?

    Thank you!

  2. Zepp
    Its mostly Epileptic children on a ketogenic diet, some of them get kidney stones more often, but only some of them.

    And as a medical student you supose to know how to avoid this?

    Drink enough water, to flush your kidney, make your urine more acidily, to prevent stones to take form.


    But.. one of those things I think is taking care of it self.. becuse I do drink more water on a ketogenic diet.

  3. Md Faisal
    Hello Doc, Can I consume Whole Rice (Brown Rice) and Whole Wheat ??
  4. Zepp
    Noe. you should avoid those, perticaly whole wheat, but altso brown rice.. you know there is som healt reasons that one use white rise, insted of brown!
  5. Jorge

    I have recently started this new lifestyle change and I am liking it so far! (after my 4th day). I just want to know how I could get my fibre intake of about 40grams or 50grams a day? I used to eat so much carb. I used to eat 6 weetbix and toast for breakfast and sandwich at lunch. This allows me to have my 'daily fibre intake'

    Please advise!



  6. Zepp
    "There are other reasons to limit all types of fiber. Fiber isn’t essential. Human breast milk doesn’t have any, and traditional people like the Masai – who are free of modern, degenerative disease – eat almost no fiber at all (subsisting on a diet of meat, blood and milk). And while fiber can feed the good bacteria in our gut and increase the production of beneficial short-chain fats like butyrate, it can also feed pathogenic and opportunistic bacteria in the gut.

    Verdict: vegetable (but not grain) fiber is beneficial in moderate amounts – about one-half pound of vegetables per day. But think about vegetables and fiber as accompaniments or flavorful condiments to fat and protein, which should form the bulk of calories consumed, rather than the other way around."

    Could you write an article about the benifits of Intermittent Fasting combined with HFLC?

    Specifically the modified forms of fasting that have demonstrated high compliance like 300 to 500 calories on a Modified Alternate Day fast combined with a 12 hour Modified Alternate day HFLC feasting eat day. I think the science shows this 36 hour modified Fast and 12 hour eating repeated cycle has many healthbenifits as well as a higher compliance or do ability rate for thos wanting a healthy diet and resonable weight.

    Research in Kids with Epilepsy shows a very ketogentic diet of 87% fat, 8% protein, and only 5% carbohydrates can be maintained for years. To my mind this demonstrates HFLC is a healthy alternativ to in my case the Standard American Diet (SAD). Also some of the children have recently combined the ultra ketogenic diet with Alternae Day Feedining with good results


  9. Doctor,I am insulin resistant, suffer from IBS. Have sugar, wheat/glucose and dairy intolarant.
    Cant eat the cabbage, bean family vegatables. Dont eat chicken. Suffer from constant very bad bloating. Am 1.65 metres and weight 86 kilo. Excercise 5 times a week doing both weights and cardio. Cannot loose weight. Also on Glucophase XR 500mg x 4 per day.I take no other medicine only vitamins. I am 56 years old. How would I fit the LCHF into my lifestyle with all my tolarances. Is there a diet menu to follow?
    Reply: #210
  10. Zepp
    There is no menu, the real issuie is to eat real whole food, and take your energy from mostly fat.

    You know.. there are vegitarians how eat like this.. its a low carb eating plan.. ie a fat diet, ie a ketogenic diet!

    Eat what healty real whole foods you tolerate.. its more about taking energy from fat, preferely meat/fish fat, eating thos abowe grounde non starchy veggies one tollerate and like.

    And to avoid all those modern franken food, preprepared prepacked highly processed foods.

    As a IR you should cut out all sugar, bread, cereals.. those sort of food, and eating more whole food, making your meals by your self.

    Hi there
    I have never eaten huge quantities of carbs, but traditionally had a medium portion of one form or another with my daily evening meal. I have started gaining weight over the past few years, and although I'm still within an acceptable BMI, I hate carrying weight and would like to lose a few kilograms. Twelve days into the LCHF diet I have ranged up and down in the region of 800g, but today weighed in at 300g heavier than the day I started it. I have cut out all formal carbs and hugely increased my protein intake. Where I was previously just snacking from time to time through the day and then eating a good supper, I now eat three good mainly protein meals a day, but I am constantly ravenous! I take one cup of coffee a day, and drink either very diluted fruit juice or water. Any ideas on what else I can do? Best regards, Jen
    Reply: #212
  12. Smike
    Jen, stop measuring weight-loss success with a scale! Instead look at body composition and measurements. Kg up or kg down should not make any difference in your mindset and is quite normal.
    Your meals should NOT be mainly protein but mainly fat. You seem to be doing the mistake of cutting down the carbs but not replacing them with fat. Also your cravings will go away if you start eating more fat.
  13. Sophie

    there is no need to "hugely increase" your protein intake! Basically you can have about 1g of protein for every kg that you weigh. From there you can replace your intake of carbs by fat. Also consuming a lot of dairy can be hindering your weight loss.

    I gained weight the first time I did LCHF, but I lost over 15 kg now. I had to understand I can never eat the same volume as I did before, and you have to get used to the different way hunger and satiety will feel.

    I find what works best for me is to have a lot of fat, small amounts of protein and a lot of green veggies for volume. Slowly your body will get used to it.

  14. lea p
    wait I am confused! I thought the whole idea is to eat Protein but as I am reading this I am seeing it is more about fat? like Cheese? butter? how much fat? and how many grams of carbs total in a day? and we are not counting calories so ?? can someone explain the type of fats they are replacing the carbs with?
    Reply: #215
  15. Zepp
    Still confused I think.. not ad a lot of dairys.. its the lard that supose to give you all the fat you need.. from real food!

    Go for about 50 grams of carbs in the beginning.. or less!

    And eat normal protein.. that is not for fuel.. its to be a bouldingstone for your body.

    Then you body do a transitation to be a fatburner.. thats what its about.. to make fat predominant fuel.

    The type of is those coming from full fatty food.. like lard from meat, fatty fish, fry in butter/coconut oil, sprinkel som olive oil on your veggies.

    And if you use dairys.. allways use full fatty dairys, like vippin cream, strained youghurt, cream fraich and such a things.. use them in your cooking!

  16. Sophie
    Protein is good and you should eat your protein. But if you eat EXCESS protein it will hinder your weight loss. I follow the 1g of protein per kg that I weigh.

    From there I add as much green veggies that I want, and I coat everything with animal fat (butter, lard, coconut oil, etc.). For instance for lunch today I fried bok choi and mushrooms in duck fat, added a bit of chicken and put everthing on a bed of lettuce. It was a big dish but it only contained a bit of protein, and about 1 tbsp of duck fat, maybe more.

    Personally I think the dairy is an obstacle to my weight loss, but it is not the case for everyone. I follow the Atkins induction rules (for now) and try to eat under 20 g of carbs everyday, mostly from green veggies and coconut milk.

    I plateaued until I got rid of the dairy, limited my protein intake and increased fats and greens.

    Every body's different, and you have to figure out what will work for you. Don't forget the less you weigh, the less food you need.

    Hello, Dr. Eenfeldt;

    I am one of your many LCHF patients, and I have a question about a tangent 'consumption' activity that may have research and methodological conflicts within it that are similar to the carbohydrate and sugar predicament. Namely, NA+ Nicotine use. Historically, the smoking of tobacco to reap the benefits of nicotine have come with heavy, irrational, health tolls. However, there are numerous articles floating around on the web that indicate that nicotine itself alone is quite beneficial to human health in a number of important bodily systems. Would you consider addressing this topic?

    I recall from your interviews with Gary Taubes, that the focus on methodology in scientific discovery can result in varied results. This complimented with policy driven governance funding, and private sector funding with lobby motives, leaves the day-to-day human being with an unduly complex, possibly neurotic, question to solve by themselves at much risk to their brief, if beautiful bodily existence.

    With many smoking-cessation products available in western markets, small doses of refined nicotine are available for a modest cost. At a heuristic level, I have tried the 4mg gum for a few weeks now, and find that it is noticeably beneficial in motivation, concentration and reaction time.
    But this is only me, so far. I a

  18. joseph
    What about the health benefits of refined nicotine? It is easily available over the counter in most pharmacies. e.g., Gum, Lozenge, Puffer. Is there any research that shows nicotine alone as a rational benefit? Especially for ex-smokers who have gained weight after quitting?
    Reply: #219
  19. Zepp
    Its adictiv anyhow.. and probably a lot better if you get it from non smoke sources.

    The thing is that its not the nicotine thats the big problem its all those cancerogenic substances one get from the smoke.

    The problem with nicotine is its adictive manner.. and then you have to smoke and get all that poison.

  20. Geoffrey
    Getting into a ketogenic how much fat do you eat and protein do you eat any carbs?
  21. Zepp
    Less then 100 grams a day, 1-2 grams/Kg of protein and the rest fat.

    Well its not nocarb.. its lowcarb.. its nice to have some veggies, to ones meal.

    You know.. one can eat a lot of non starchy vegetabels, and there are altså some carbs in dairys.

  22. Joaquin
    Hi doctor. I wanted to know your opinion on my mom's lipid profile after 2 months on a LCHF diet:

    Total Cholesterol: 441 mg/dL
    HDL: 111 mg/dL
    LDL: 323 mg/dL
    Triglycerides: 34 mg/dL

    I think HDL and triglycerides are remarkable, but I got just a bit worried about LDL. I know it tends to be overestimated when triglycerides are that low, and also that it is probably the "good" A pattern LDL. Nontheless I wanted to know your opinion, just in case. Thank you!

  23. Zepp

    Should be under 6. better if its lower then 5.. very god if its 4 or lower!

    Very good, nothing to vorry about.. like an young healty person!

    Im not Doc but I read hos swedish articel about cholesterile!


  24. Geoffrey
    Hi zepp please tell me how many tablespoon of fat per day I'm not good with numbers !
  25. Zepp
    Noe.. no tabelspoons, count mayby carbs, and make shure you get your demand of amino acids, the rest is fat.

    You know, you have a built in calorie counter.. its cald "apetite"!

    And one have to learn where the fat lurks, its in your food.

    One big issue is to make you think diferent.

    For exampel.. eggs, 66E% fat.
    Bacon.. about 85E% fat.

    Its about to eat real whole food, and dont be afraid of the fatty ones.

    And eating fat by spoon must be some sort of eating disturbace?

  26. What's up, I check your new stuff on a regular basis. Your story-telling style is witty, keep it up!
  27. Geoffrey
    Hi zepp I'm still confused! I weigh 138kg and need to lose weight how many grams of carbs per day and carbs ?
  28. Geoffrey
    Sorry mean carbs and protein
  29. Zepp
    Yea.. I know its confusing in the beginning.. but its simplyer then one think.

    Dont count that much in the beginning.. just cut out a lot of carbs, like bread, pasta, potatos, sugar and such a food.

    Keep the veggies.

    Start loking for fatty meat/fish.. fry in butter, put som wipping cream in the pan and make a sauce.

    Sprinkel som olive oil on your veggies.

    If you eats poultry, take som bearneas, if you eat white fish.. take som remoluade.

    Eat only whole food, eat it every meal.. mayby you can take som strained youghurt as breakfast, but I recomend egg and bacon.. or some other eggmeal.

    You should never go hungry, make attention on your apetite/hunger/cravings.. try to cut out cravings.

    And you have a transitation to do.. its often about 2-3 weeks.. and you can fell bad in that period.. becuse you gonna get glucose shortage.. but that whats needed to make your body to be a fatt burning machine!

    If you in this period feels to bad.. ad some carbs, like one potato to your meal.

    Well.. you need about 0,5 Kg meat/fish/egg/poultry/chees a day

    And you can try by head counting go as low as 50 grams carbs a day, the rest is fat.. and did you know, you can eat a lot of veggies for 50 grams of carbs.. perticuly green levy veggies.

    Dr Andreas, love your website and the generosity of posting links to other people's blogs but are you aware of how incongruous the Free The Animal blog has become amidst the other health related blogs.
    The author of this blog seems to increasingly be using it as a platform for very dubious, often ugly business that I can't believe you could possibly endorse... You may end up being tainted by association.
    Time to let the animal truly run free me-thinks.
  31. I have just discovered your website via a posting of Oopsies on Pinterest. I am interested in following the LCHF change. I do not see what I've read so far where beans come into play with this diet. Kidney, Great Northern ,Navy, Pinto, Black, Garbanzo type beans, Lentils,Split Peas, etc. They are grown above the ground and when I read the labels contain high amount of carbs. Please give your thoughts on where these type of beans fit into the LCHF diet.
  32. Zepp
    Beans and lentils are mostly high carb food, eat them in small amounts occasionaly.

    Some green beans and harricoverts are lowcarb.



  33. Regis
    You convinced me. And I lost more weight, thank you. There is something I would like to ask: in the end of the day, do we actually get a higher calorie diet?
    The reason I ask is because I clearly do not lose weight when I eat more freely (even if fats, wo fruits/nuts).
    Anyway it is MUCH easier to avoid overeating in LCHF than in ANY other diet I tried.
    Reply: #234
  34. Zepp
    The normal thing on a high fat diet is that one dont overeat that easy, becuse ones body have access to stored fat, and one dont have any blood sugar swings.

    And if one does.. one often lose apetite for a long time.

    Soo.. its a time for trail and error, then one learn how a desent meal should be, to get satisfyed and unhungry till next planed meal.

    And its not that pleasant to overeat fat eighter.. so one learn from mistakes.

    Soo.. if one have a normal apetite regulation one eat less.. if one have a lot of fat stored and have access to that.

    And when your body think that you got the right weight, then it probably rises the apetite again.

    Soo.. its nothing magic at all.. its normal apetite regulation by a normal metabolisme from eating real food, and not being scared of fat!

    It is very good platform you have created, where people get all the information they need in order to loose weight or get in better health overall. I also decided to put it into a try. I have been on this diet for 2 weeks now and 2 days ago i started to have constipation. It has not fully passed by now and not fun at all :) I never before have had problems like that. Maybe you know what causes it and how to prevent it? Probably there are lots of people out there, who are struggling with the same issue.
    Thank you and all the best!

    Constipation is a common beginners problem.. less waist to excret and less signaling about it!

    Take some home cures to get over it.. lika Pshylium seeds, magnesium, whole flex seeds and/or more coconut oil.

    On this diet.. its comon to do nr2 every second day.

    Its gonna be better after some time.

    If one is pregnant one should take some safe steps.. and dont eat like one need to lose weight.. no hard core dieting.. no hardcore LCHF.. more a moderate one.. to be safe!

    But.. I think Inuits did make birth to healty childs on a ketogenic diet.. soo it should be safe.. but if you dont is a diabetic.. its no extra benefits of being hardcore about your eating?

    Eat as healty as you can do.. and one dont need to eat any sugars at all!

    I've been LCHF for 5 weeks. First week lost 6 lbs and have lost or gained 1 lb each week since.
    Not feeling hungry majority of time with occassional snacking on brazil nuts or 85% cocoa ( no more than 5g carbs per 25g portion).I don't always feel like eating a meal and will have some cheese. Feel absolutely shattered most of time and frustrated that scales are stagnant! I know you don't like scales but I have 3 stone to lose for health reasons (spondylosis)
    I love the fact I have no carb or sugar cravings which was a huge problem before (emotional eater!). I did lose 1st 10lb on Slimming World diet quite easily (lots of carbs and low fat) but couldn't stick to it unless I went to the classes! (and have since put it all back on!) Could it be that LCHF diet doesn't suit all folk?
    I did do 30mins fat burning exercise daily for first week, but don't have the energy now :(
    Please advise!
    Thank you !

    Dear Dr Eenfeldt.

    Almost two months ago I was diagnosed as having diabetes type 2 .Was told to reduce weight,exercise and follow some general diet instructions that were given to me.

    Since I have already had a heart attack 23 years ago and bypass surgery 11 years ago I more or less knew what to do ie exercise {walk every day} and follow a low fat diet.

    After a short time I realised that I was doing everything correctly ie eating like an insect and exercising each day, but not much was happening.

    So I decided to buy a glucometer and a blood pressure measuring device and started to make and record measurements. I soon discovered that something was badly wrong, even very small amounts of carbohydrates were giving me unsatisfactory blood glucose readings.

    I then started to browse the internet and came across your presentation "The food revolution".
    I have since been able to reduce my blood pressure medications, lose over 10 Kg in body weight and lower my blood glucose levels. In addition I also feel much better.
    ie everything you said in your lecture is working very well for me.

    Making the decision to change over to a low carbohydrate diet was not so easy, because I had always been guided to follow the low fat pathway.

    Anyway, this is my round about way of thanking you for the great advice you freely offer, advice grounded in science.

    Again many thanks,

    I just recently had a routine colonoscopy (just turned 50) and was told I had diverticulosis and should go on a high fiber diet which includes breads, cereals, and beans plus certain fruits and vegetables like apples, raspberries squash, potatoes and peas. Most of the foods on the list given to me by my doctor are not LCHF friendly. Do you have any suggestions that will help me prevent my diverticulosis from turning into diverticulitis yet allow me to stay LCHF?

    Rather the oposite!

    The prevalence of diverticulosis increased with age, as expected. High intake of fiber did not reduce the prevalence of diverticulosis. Instead, the quartile with the highest fiber intake had a greater prevalence of diverticulosis than the lowest (prevalence ratio = 1.30; 95% confidence interval, 1.13–1.50). Risk increased when calculated based on intake of total fiber, fiber from grains, soluble fiber, and insoluble fiber. Constipation was not a risk factor. Compared to individuals with 15 bower movements per week had a 70% greater risk for diverticulosis (prevalence ratio = 1.70; 95% confidence interval, 1.24–2.34). Neither physical inactivity nor intake of fat or red meat was associated with diverticulosis.

    A high-fiber diet and increased frequency of bowel movements are associated with greater, rather than lower, prevalence of diverticulosis. Hypotheses regarding risk factors for asymptomatic diverticulosis should be reconsidered."


    There are enough of fibers in your veggies.. and you should eat veggies on a LCHF diet!

    I saw that you were able to test your blood sugar and ketone reaction to Pepsi Max, I was wondering if you had looked at Sweet Perfection, a chicory root sweetener. http://www.lowcarbspecialties.com/sweet_perfection.html#

    I avoid sweets for the most part and certainly would prefer not to eat sweets, but if I'm going to do or eat something bad a few times a year, I want to limit the harm as much as possible.

    I am so depressed. I have lost only 1 kg in 3 month.

    I only eat 3 times a day and now started to cut my food as well because I can`t see any changes. I am 160 cm and weight 61 kg. I train hard....weightlifting 4-6 times a week and some cardio as well. 3 year ago I competed in bodyfitness but begause bad diet I havent got in my competition shape, so I wanted to try LCHF. I thought I have more muscle and thats why the weight is not moving, but the fact that my measures are even bigger than in my start position is just grazy.

    How this all makes any sence?

    Well I have had muscles all the years that I have been training. My conserne is acctually body measures that shows I am getting bigger not smaller.

    Years ago my contest weigt was 47 kg. Now I am 14 kg heavier. Yes I have gain probably 2-3 kg muscle mass in 3 years but Its not possible to gain that same amount in 3 months.

    I feel good with LCHF because I get so tired when I eat carbs. But I ust don`t belive this diet acctually works for persons who are not overweight.

    This diet is a huge help to regulate blood sugar level and get off the roller coaster of carbohydrate addiction. However, if you're eating more than your body needs, you still won't lose weight. I do best when I eat only enough at each meal to carry me to the next. If I'm not hungry for my next meal, then I know I've eaten a bit too much. It is such a huge relief to allow fats and butter back into the diet that it's easy to over-consume. This is an eating plan for health, that's why you feel better. If you feel you must lose more weight, try consuming smaller portions and monitor your hunger signals.
