Closing in on Ten Thousand Daily Visits!

9 000

This site is growing like crazy. A year ago there were about 300 visits a day, which seemed like a nice start. Last month the daily number of visits hit 5,000 for the first time. And yesterday there were almost 10,000 visits!

Feel free to keep spreading the word. This Food Revolution is just getting started.

As you can see from the map above about half the visits yesterday (5,655) were from the US. The rest of the visits came from over a hundred different countries all over the world, including Quatar, Aruba and Kyrgyzstan. Where are you visiting from?

    Hi, I'm from Ireland. It's ironic that despite the amount of butter and grass fed meat and dairy we produce we are an extremely fat phobic nation. Love the support I get from this site. It keeps me going. I love it and my new lchf way of life. Eating the lchf way since February 12 2012, have lost about 14 pounds but more striking is the fact that my crippling arthritis has disappeared. I have slips every now and then and do miss my home made cakes and pastries but I feel great.

    Hello, I'm from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil. I'm on LCHF diet for 7 months and I can say for sure that it saved my life.

    I was having a miserable life living mainly on high carb diet and with little fat and vegetables. I saw my health just goingn worse and worse and everything i change on the diet only get me sick. I tried to go on vegetarianism and low fat and my situation let me disipered. I went to so many physicians and nutricionist and they didn't help me much. So i started to study for my self and search for health at all costs. I first find a book from Dr. Wolfgang Lutz (Life without bread) and an amazing porta of Bee Wilder about Candida infection.

    So I started the diet and after 2 months i was sooooo much better. I have had many ups and downs but because my situation was so bad. But now on 7 months everything is getting so good. I have my life back. My mind is quick and calm, i feel energy like never in my life before, i'm very happy and my metabolism is good again. No headaches anymore, no more anxiety, no more flus and colds, constipations and diahrrea are gone, no more dizzness. My blood presure is ok again, without any medications. No more night sweatings, digestion is very good. I eat what i want now, lost more than 17kg.

    I'm not a physician or nutricionist but the results of this diet has amazed so much that i'm really thinking of study nutrition for real. Nothing would get so much pleasure than help people with the same problems i had.

    If i could say anything to inspire you is that this diet Really saved my life.

    The only things i dont eat yet (because of the candida infection) is milk, yougurts and cheeses. But soon i will have a little of then too.

    I love this blog, it is medicine for the future!! And for sure i want to be part of it.

    Hope to start doing the same here in Brazil and bring people to happiness and peace.

    Hugs from Brazil

    Ehi Doc...one quick comment...you seem to be the only one so far that is not trying to make any money directly from LCHF with the blog/website/books...I really like that as it keeps the health message pure. Your approach is genuine wide eyed disinterested so thanks for that as well. I gave the link to your site to a Swedish friend so she can enjoy also in mother tongue.
    Anyhoo thanks again....ciao

    Switzerland. We are eating "primal with cheese" and drink raw milk (lots of cows in the neighbourhood)
    Friends and family are not yet convinced... but our blood glucose meter is a great help in explaining our approach.
    Thank you for posting in English!

    Hi

    I am from England and have only recenty been doing LCHF. I struggle with keeping off the biscuits, sweets and other high carb junk. Thanks to your post about Dr Briffa I read his book yesterday 'Escape the diet trap', which has explained why I am still craving carbs. I hope to lose the last 4 stone that has been haunting me for over a year now and with the help of you Doc and others I hope to do it.

    Thanks for such a good site. I link you where ever I go on the net and do get some abuse for doing so. LOL, but I don't care, because I know it works.

    Thanks again.

    @ Laura . . . Has it really been 47 years? Wow! Time flies when you're feeling good. It truly is a lifestyle. At 60 I have no aches or pains, have never had to take meds for anything, have a few silver hairs and everyone comments on how my skin glows. I've never had lab tests that caused any real concern. Never have been seriously ill; have had flu/cold maybe 4 or 5 times since I was a teenager. I guess that I take feeling good or great for granted most of the time. It's only when I stop and think about how much better I must feel compared to the 20-somethings I work with that I realized what a huge favor I have done for myself. Stress management takes my greatest effort.

    My family had a tendency to carry a few extra pounds and when I was in my midteens (and a little chubby; nothing more soul wrenching than being even a little bit heavier than your friends at that age) my dad heard of "The Air Force Diet" (also known as "The Drinking Man's Diet"). The whole family started eating this way. This was pre-Atkins recommendation 45-60 gms of carbs daily and as much fat and protein as you wanted and it was advised that the carbs be veggie-based instead of grain-based. You could get a little Dell book for 25 cents back then that gave the carb count of various foods. I carried that little book with me for years. Of course we all knew back then that bread, sugar and potatoes is what made you fat, not butter and lard. Oh, my, how things have changed. I am so glad to see the paradigm is changing back . . . I have hated being the "food freak" for so many years.

    To be honest, I did try low fat for about 6 months in the 90's in response to social pressure. Put on 20 pounds the last two months, felt like crap and gave it up. My 6 month experiment with vegetarianism went the same way. Now I stay with LCHF. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Okay, now see how you got me started! Whew! gonna stop now. Don't ever think it's too late to start eating like your life depends on it.

  11. I'm based in London, started LCHF approx 10 weeks ago. In this time I can tick off all the boxes of positive effects LCHF has: flat and comfortable tummy, no more sugar rushes, no more migraine and an overall satisfaction with my 14 kg weight loss. Friends keep asking me how long I'm planning to continue my "diet". To me LCHF possibly started as a diet but undoubtedly isn't any more. LCHF is much more of a very positive long term lifestyle which I really could see so many more in the UK benefit of. Unfortunately the understanding of Low Carb High Fat food in the UK is minimal. UK food stores constantly bombard us irresponsibly with their traditional commercial messages full of sugar and low fat products. Awareness of the Swedish LCHF lifestyle certainly needs to be spread in the UK.

    Living in Indiana but come from Sweden.Started with LCHF/Paleo in Sept 2011 because most food here in USA contains HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup)or other kind of sugars ,color and all kind of strange artificial ingridients ,so it was back to Stone Age to be able to feed my family healthy food.

    Colorado, USA! Low Carb since 2/04/2012
  18. Hi, I'm from Cornwall, England. I have followed a low-carb diet for 31/2 years but recently I'm getting more interested in the LCHF and Paleo diets. I've eaten quite a lot of vegetarian food over the years as well as lots of fish and occasionally meat; I'm now eating more meat.

    I'm in pretty good shape (60, slim and enjoying Zumba once a week as well as walking lots; yoga; and I don't take any pills). It's good to read the posts on this site because I'm always boring other people with the virtues of this kind of diet and it's heartening to know that lots of people are reinforcing what I say. Keep up the good work, Andreas. We appreciate it.

    I am English but recently moved to Sweden with my Swedish husband. I am so grateful to have been pointed to this new way of eating as I have been diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2, and my husband recently also but he is not yet on medication (thankfully). We have been on the LCHF diet (religiously) for the last 5 weeks. Feel better already but not confident enough to go off the Metformin. I also realize that we have to do much more energetic-type exercise. We are in our 60s and the 20 minute dog-walking a day is not going to do it.

    I am currently visiting Canada for a few days while my husband is at a conference, and will visit a Health Store to buy all the items I need to make meals found in US-cook books (that are not available in our village in middle-Sweden). We have not experienced any weight loss yet... and am wondering when that is supposed to start happening...? Would be so grateful for anyone's hints on this.

  23. Olivia:
    Personally, I would have thought that you would get immediate results. I certainly did when I started on a low-carb diet (although mine was not high fat as such). A couple of people have mentioned this same topic recently on this blog and I am wondering whether you are perhaps eating too much over the course of a day. Although the diet doesn't specify amounts, I feel that if you are eating a sensible-sized piece of protein for lunch and dinner in the form of fish, meat, eggs plus a good-sized helping of above-ground vegetables (plus having breakfast) you ought to see weight loss immediately. I think it's possible to snack on too many nuts throughout the day, however, and you don't need to have giant portions of meat/fish etc, or go crazy with the cream. Could this be what's happening?
  24. Olivia Nilsson
    Thanks for the good points, Jan. We do not snack between meals (haven't felt the need to so far), but perhaps the portions are too big, esp. for breakfast. I shall start monitoring our intake more closely. Not about to waver... This discovery is too much of a GOOD thing!
  25. Roxanne
    I am following your blog from Moncton, New Brunswick in Canada and find it truly amazing what a large percentage of people in Sweden are following the LCHF lifestyle compared to other countries that haven't caught on so quickly. To the person who mentioned they really miss their cakes and pastries, I would like to suggest the "Low Carbing Among Friends" cookbook. (Also, a quick web search for 'Raspberry Coconut Muffins low carb' or "Bananaless Banana Muffins' will lead you to a couple of excellent blogs, filled with healthy versions of your old favorites by using ingredients such as ground almonds in place of flour.)
  26. Olivia
    Thanks for the book tip, Roxanne - and whoever reads this, please excuse the strange spelling and re-translated words that end up in these posts - I suspect what we write in English is translated into Swedish then back into English. I found out about this diet through my dental hygienist in a little town in middle-Sweden, who told me one of her clients had been able to set aside his medication with this lifestyle... I am longing to put my pills away for good! Although I live in Sweden, I am currently in Vancouver at a hotel, so am having some trouble 'counting' my intake as I cannot weigh or calculate... but am determined NOT to fall off the log, despite the challenges. I am also going to use this opportunity to do some grocery shopping for items I don't seem to be able to find 'back home' that are referred to in English-speaking cookbooks...
