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, 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.

    You know what would be really cool?!? If there was a feature on the website where you could make your own meal plan from your favorite recipes page. Of course you can do that manually by printing out or copying to your computer the recipes and organizing them the way you want them by day, but it would be awesome to be able to put together a two-week plan on the website that would print out like the 2-week challenge menu.

    6 months ago I was 100kgs drank beer, ate a lot of bread and muesli and sat down all day. Then I had a mini stroke.

    I quit my job, stopped all alcohol and bread, ate loads of fruit and veg. Also walked an hour a day

    Every morning I had apple cider vinegar and garlic. Every evening I had tumeric tea.

    I lost 10kgs BUT Lp-PLA2 is now 216 and is dangerously high. What on earth did I do wrong?

    Can you add more soup recipes to the fantastic recipe collection? Soup is one food which is really easy to have for lunch and take with you and there are very few recipes currently available.

    Question: I have just been diagnosed with very early macula degeneration. MD Society advice is to eat a low fat diet and lots of green, red and orange fruit and veg as the drusen are fat deposits on the retina and the fruit and veg supply the right vitamins. Am I OK to ignore this advice and continue with the LCHF diet which I am very happy with?

    Dear Sir, I have been trying to obtain membership with your website for a couple of weeks now. Initially I was told that I had signed up for membership already. I had never seen your website before. I've been trying and trying and keep getting rejected. Finally I was offered a paid membership for 9 dollars a month, which is great for such a wonderful source of great information. I attempted to apply to the point of entering my Visa information only to be regected again. I don't understand and now I'm nervous that my Visa info is out there and may be used by the wrong person. Perhaps someone used my email on your site without my knowledge. I'm going to look into that possibility and hopefully straighten it out. Please protect my Visa info if you can. I will try again eventually and I'm hoping all will go well. I really need help since I have type 2 diabetes. I love what I've seen on your site and am convinced that it's just what I need. Thank you.

    Good morning,
    There is a small problem with the website recipes. They don't seem to be opening fully. The ingredients list is bunched up with the preamble about the recipe and it makes it difficult to read.

  19. Hi Elle!

    I can't see this problem. Which browser do you use? (Mobile/Tablet/Phone?)

    Could low carb make spinal stenosis and spinal arthritis worse because of higher ingested Omega 6? Eggs, cheese, pork, bacon?
  33. Rebecca
    I was a fat baby and by the time I was twenty, I was an obese adult. In between childhood and adulthood, the only way I managed to maintain a reasonable weight was by eating very little. I realize this is subject to interpretation, but for me this was an egg for breakfast, an apple for lunch and a piece of chicken with coleslaw for dinner. I am now 64 years old and I have lost 100 pounds twice in my life as well as thousands of pounds less spectacularly. I want to believe LCHF is the answer but why should I accept that, when the HCLF diet did not help me, as hard as it was to change to HCLF. I now have T2D and am on statins as well as metformin, not to mention multiple BP meds. Please, if you have had a similar experience, tell me if LCHF has helped you. I cannot experiment again and I am not ready to give up. Just saying this brings tears and I feel sure some of you must recognize this. Have any of those tearful people found a solution?
    Reply: #935
  34. Rebecca,
    LCHF could be tailor made for you. T2D and high BP means you have a severe metabolic syndrome, and that's where LCHF really shines. Best of luck.

    On a side note that's likely why LFHC did not work – it was probably the opposite of what you needed.

  35. Julie
    I started on the LCHF lifestyle in Sept 2016. After the first month I had lost 13lbs and 9.25 inches. After the second month the weight/inches loss slowed considerably (1.75 inches and 3lbs) although I had not changed anything. Still eating the same foods as the first month. Was mostly water lost during the first month? seems to be quite a bit less progress in the second month. Thoughts? I have reviewed the list of reasons the weight loss has slowed and don't see anything that has changed since month one. Thanks!
  36. gbl
    Julie, pretty much the same for me, and probably because I upped carbs, as suggested to handle the Keto rash. I had the rash and still have lesions, oblong about 1/2 an inch in length and puffy. Very irritating, in all meanings.
  37. Sharon
    We are doing this as a family, now in our third week, so grateful for the information. My 14 year old is very committed to this but he is in braces, and I wondered if you have tips for what to eat when his mouth is aching after the braces are tightened. He used to drink Ensures and eat pudding--even scrambled eggs are too hard for him to eat for a couple days after they are tightened sometimes. He is not a fan of broth. I know I can make him versions of the dairy free latte/bulletproof coffee with eggs but it would be terrific if there was an area of the website that dealt with how to handle situations like that, especially with kids who may be pickier than adults. Also, do artificial sweeteners make insulin spike or not? I feel like I'm hearing conflicting messages about their use and it might bridge the gap sometimes if I could use them, especially for my son. I realize too that we want to deal with sugar addiction and am trying to balance how best to help my son build a new lifestyle that he can sustain. Thanks so much!
