You’ll get the opportunity to travel internationally too, if you want that. Some of our coworkers regularly travel to low-carb related conferences all over the world. This could help you network with our international team of expert contributors.

Most of our full-time staff work together in a beautiful office in central Stockholm. So would you, if this position is right for you.

      Sounds great! I’m interested. I’m retired. PhD in Development (applied economics). I live half the year in San Diego, California and half the year in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
      I swim every day for 80 minutes and scuba dive 2x year for 10 days each trip.
      Why did I buy a house in Thailand? To push myself forward. I want to learn and grow every year.
      Yummy food in Thailand can be low carb.
      Fifteen years ago there were no fat people in Thailand. I weighed 190 lbs and was the fattest person in Chiang Mai. Kind Thai strangers in restaurants would advise me NOT to eat everything on my plate.
      Now, American fast food is invading. The Thai are getting fat. I’m watching huge health problems develop as diabetes proliferates. I’m no longer the fattest person in Chiang Mai. Sad!

      Hejsan!
      I'm Myleen Sjödin. As the name suggests, jag talar svenska flytande och har engelska som modersmål. I believe I would be perfect for this job because I am coming with the tumultuous experience of yoyo dieting and now becoming an avid promoter of the low carb lifestyle. I am a firm believer of the Diet Doctor site and have been a fan of Dr. Fung (who lives in Toronto, where I coincidentally reside!), I think it is serendipity that I happen to live in Toronto, speak fluent Swedish and am following the Keto diet and IF for some time now with great success. That's why I can bring a lot of passion and insight with a Writer role, but also do extensive research on the science of this life-changing diet.

      Besides that, I have been a professional Writer for almost 20 years and blogger for about 6 years covering Swedish food, culture and the Nordic lifestyle. We actually intend to move back to Sweden in 3 years time. It will be a wonderful opportunity to contribute to your site. If this sounds like a match made in heaven, please write me at myleensjodin@yahoo.com. I will also submit an application and CV.

      Warm Regards,
      Myleen Sagrado Sjödin
