“Eat until satisfied and avoid flour/sugar have been the keys to my success.”


There is not necessarily a one-size-fits-all when it comes to improving health and losing weight. For instance, some people seem to do great on a more liberal low-carb diet, just avoiding the worst carbs, with no need to stay strictly low carb.

Here’s a happy email that we received from Dave, who’s been able to make significant changes mainly by using intermittent fasting:

The Email

Dear Diet Doctor,

I began at 6-0; 225 lbs (102 kg) about two years ago and this morning hit 190 lbs (86 kg). I don’t do LCHF anymore but your site led me to intermittent fasting with links to “Butter Bob” and Dr. Jason Fung. The principles of the site; eat until satisfied and avoid flour/sugar have been the keys to my success.

There are lots of ways to skin the cat and everybody is different. For me, intermittent fasting is the predominant regime with a slightly different nutrition plan but what I learned at Diet Doctor kept me motivated and slowly more educated.

Thanks very much,


Congratulations Dave and thank you for sharing!
