105,000

Diet Doctor is already the world’s largest low-carb site, and it keeps growing. Just a week after the last visitor record we had another one yesterday: Over 105,000 visits in one day. This site is now roughly three times as popular as a year ago.

As always, a huge thank you for everyone’s support! We could never do this alone. But together we’ll keep working towards our goal: empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

We’re still just getting started – there’s so much to do.

Diet Doctor is already the world’s largest low-carb site, and it keeps growing. This Monday we had another daily visitor record: Over 87,000 visits in one day.

The weekly (now over 500K) and monthly records (now over 2M) are also broken regularly. Here’s yet another sign of growth: Last year we had 25,000 newsletter subscribers. Now there are over 175,000.

Thanks for everyone’s support! Together we’ll keep working towards our goal: empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

Where on the Low-Carb Journey Are You?

Where on your low-carb journey are you? We asked our members and got over 1,600 replies. Here are the results:

low-carb-journey

As you can see, five in ten members are already living the low-carb lifestyle, while many others are still transitioning to it, or experimenting.

Unfortunately, for many reasons it can still be hard to eat low carb long term. We want to make it simple. Here are three things we are working on right now to make the low-carb lifestyle simpler: Continue Reading →

Behind the Scenes: What Does “Making Low Carb Simple” Mean to You?

Team Diet Doctor

Team Diet Doctor

Our mission is to make low carb simple, but what does that mean? More specifically, what would it mean to you? Diet Doctor needs your help.

The reason Diet Doctor exists is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health. Our first mission on this journey is to make low carb simple.

This mission guides everything we do: what products we make, who we hire, how we spend money, and what we decide to do – this month, this week and today. How we define our mission is therefore massively important.

We are discussing this at the moment and now is the time for you to help shape our mission. What does making low carb simple mean to you? Please let us know in the comments below.

Faster and More Secure

We keep improving DietDoctor.com. From today the entire site – not just the member area – is more secure, using https encryption. This means extra protection and privacy for readers, making sure that nobody else can intercept data between you and our site.

More speed

Perhaps even more important, you should also be able to notice a significant increase in speed today. Pages on our site simply load quicker, so that you don’t have to wait for them.

This is the first big step in an ongoing project to keep increasing the site speed, led by our coworker Alex Bergvall (who’s also been working on the https encryption). You’ll see even more of this speed increase during the next few months. Thanks Alex!

Making it simple to find great low-carb material

Most members found us through Google which is unsurprising. Why? Because we work hard to create fantastic guides for the low-carb related things people search for.

We are currently creating two awesome guides which simplify the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. None of these guides are finished, but you can check them out and tell us how to make them better.

Are You Great at Video Editing? Change the World with Team Diet Doctor in Stockholm

DietDoctor-small-clipboard

Are you a star at editing videos and also interested in low carb? Would you consider moving to Stockholm – one of the most beautiful cities in the world – or do you live there already? Then this might be the job of your dreams!

Diet Doctor continues to expand rapidly. It is now the largest low-carb website in the world. We have more than 100,000 daily visitors and reach new records every month. The interest in low carb also increases rapidly in many countries, including the United States.

There is a great need for what we do, given the global obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics. We want to spread well-founded and trustworthy knowledge in a simple and inspiring way, free for everyone who needs it. This is financed through an optional membership (we have close to 18,000 paying members who support us) in order to remain independent from industry, product sales or advertisements.

We’ll soon be nine people working full time, and approximately twenty freelancers and moderators. This is your chance to become one of the first ten employees in a rapidly growing company with enormous ambitions for the future.

New possibilities for video production

The production of videos is something we’ve invested a lot in for a long time, through interviews, video courses, presentations and commentaries. We work hard at improving our video productions. One of our employees, Simon Victor, has been working full time with this for the last two years, and others are helping as freelancers.

Now we need to strengthen our team with a second full-time employment. Someone who is already great and who can start editing interviews, presentations and video courses soon. You should also be able to help developing new creative concepts in video editing, for instance cooking videos or commentaries, or a dramatic improvement of our future video courses.

You’ll work at our rapidly growing office in Stockholm, Sweden, right next to the central station at Sergels Torg, together with six other employees.

You’ll also get the chance to participate in and improve our recordings, in Sweden and on international trips to conferences.

Please spread the word if you know somebody that would be a perfect match. Here’s more about the job:
