“I now enjoy perfect health”


Can a keto diet help you lose 130 pounds (59 kg) and reverse type 2 diabetes in just 14 months? Karl says yes!

He recently wrote to us to tell us his fantastic success story with keto and Diet Doctor:

Wanted to share my before and after pictures. I lost a total of 131 lbs (59 kg) over a 14-month period. I found your site very useful through the process.

It was my doctor who recommended keto when he diagnosed me with type 2 diabetes. I was also on medication for high blood pressure. I no longer have either condition and now enjoy perfect health. We also started daily walks and do a minimal of 5 km (3 miles) each day.



Congratulations on your impressive health transformation, Karl! Keep up the great work and I hope we can continue to help you on your journey.
