Doctors' low-carb testimonials
I had been suffering from enteritis (IBS) and gastritis. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, insomnia, snoring, irritable bladder, were other health problems I had suffered. All these ailments or illnesses disappeared pretty quickly when I restricted carbohydrates and increase the natural fat.
I realized that these mechanisms should also be able to apply to many other people, and started to spread my experiences.
As a specialist in gynecology, gynecologic oncology and breast cancer management including surgery, I support fasting and ketogenic diet approach for a wide range of metabolic health conditions of my patients. For example, a recent review paper I co-authored (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnut.2020.00021/full) highlights as an emerging evidence that a correct and well-formulated ketogenic metabolic therapy could be helpful as a complementary pre-surgical and post-surgical approach for women with all stages of breast cancer, even metastatic disease. KD reduces glucose availability to cancer cells, systemic inflammation, and, with other biochemical mechanisms, enables the targeting of cancer cells without causing damage to normal cells. A KD may also improve progression-free and overall survival for most breast cancer patients.
I recommend LCHF nutrition to all my patients to shift their metabolism to a more beneficial state. This nutrition is often enough to reverse diseases like obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease, improving the health and quality of life of my patients. In my experience, other medical interventions also become much more efficacious. I recommend the Diet Doctor website, due to its panel of experts, to all my patients to make their transition easier
En mi consulta no solo trato enfermedades. También ayudo a mis pacientes a recuperar y mantener su salud, a mejorar su desempeño tanto físico como mental, todo con un abordaje basado en la longevidad del individuo.
Creo que la dieta es uno de los pilares más importantes de la salud humana, y una de las herramientas más poderosas para recuperar y mantener la salud. Y dentro de las muchas opciones que hay hoy de dietas para probar, creo que la dieta keto/low carb es una de las mejores. De hecho, creo que la gran mayoría de las personas se beneficiarían de una dieta baja en carbohidratos la mayor parte de sus vidas. Y para los pacientes con problemas metabólicos es mi primera opción.
In my practice I not only treat diseases. I also help my patients to recover and keep them healthy, to improve their physical and mental performance, all taking into account the individual´s longevity.
I think that diet is one of the pillars of human health, and one of the most powerful tools to regain and maintain health. And among many of the diet options, I think keto/low-carb is one of the best. In fact, I think that the great majority of people would benefit from a low carb diet for the most part of their lives. For patients with metabolic diseases it is my first option.
AWARE Centro de Medicina Sistémica Aware Centro de Medicina Sistémica, Prolongacion Paseo de la Reforma, Santa Fe, Paseo de las Lomas, Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico
I have been recommending low-carbohydrate diets to my patients for several years as an option to prevent and possibly reverse many chronic diseases of our modern age. It is this powerful "food as medicine" approach that I believe is one of the keys to maintaining health and well-being when used along with other good lifestyle choices. It has been very rewarding to see many of our patients have great results using this diet to regain their health and feel better!
Baptist Health Family Clinic - Bryant Baptist Health Family Clinic-Bryant, Arkansas 5, Bryant, AR, USA
I’ve studied LCHF nutrition for over 20 years for personal health benefits. In my medical practice, it has become integral to reversing many of modern society’s worst medical concerns including metabolic syndrome, obesity, and diabetes. It can be applied safely and effectively for nearly all of my patients and often results in dramatic restoration of good health.
Pillar Primary Care Pillar Primary Care, PLLC, Hardin Valley Road, Knoxville, TN, USA
I’m a specialist GP and have trained with ACNEM, IFM and the Noakes Foundation. My interests are reversing diabetes (patients can often cease their medication), weight loss (without exercise or counting calories), mental health and gut issues. Using a LCHF diet first & drugs last approach allows my patients to normalize their blood pressure and blood sugar, lose weight, improve cholesterol, stop being hungry all the time and often stop their medications. I also help executives and peak athletes boost performance and use the Keto flex Bredesen protocol to reverse brain fog and Alzheimer’s.

I'm a cardiologist who loves people and books! The sum of my passion for studies and people have brought me this mission: help people to achieve well-being through the low-carb diet! The Diet Doctor website is a valuable resource to help patients get started, have further information and reach great results.
I recommend low-carb and keto diets because there's nothing more fun than empowering people to treat the root of the problem to help regain their health. Diet Doctor offers a great deal of support to me and to my patients because it allows them to digest the information in their own time and, particularly if it's the first time they hear it, it helps ease their fears to see that there's a whole world of science supporting the new prescription (food) I am giving them
I have been a GP for seven years. I became interested in a low-carb diet just a few months ago but since this time I have been really excited about everything I have learned. I am looking forward to helping my clients this way.
PRAKTICKÝ LÉKAŘ HOROVA s.r.o. Horova 28, 616 00 Brno-Žabovřesky, Česká republika
I have myself been practicing, and have also advocated a low-carb, ketogenic diet to my patients since 2013. This, in combination with intermittent fasting, has helped me to have an active, healthy life, but above all it has helped a number of my patients with type 2 diabetes to reach normal and healthy levels of both blood sugar and lipids.
My practice is very nutritionally-based, as I feel this is the most powerful intervention to prevent and reverse chronic disease. I use well-sourced, low-carb and ketogenic diets in most patients as the foundation of their treatment plan. I recommend and use on-line resources like Diet Doctor. I practiced conventional medicine for 25 years and have now been amazed at how powerful these interventions can be in improving health and improving lives.
Vital Rejuvenation Smyth Landing, 1801 W Bay Dr NW Suite 208-A, Olympia, WA 98502, USA
As a Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology, I help my patients decrease their risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Intermittent fasting, low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diets, and ketogenic diets have powerful effects on adiposopathy, arterial inflammation, and endothelial dysfunction. Patients often come to me for a consultation because they have developed an extremely high LDL-P while on a ketogenic diet. We work together to improve their lipid profile by optimizing their nutrition and lifestyle using a personalized, integrative approach.
Lipid Specialists SC 1400 75th St, Kenosha, WI 53143, USA
I not only recommend low-carbohydrate, punctuated ketosis and ancestral health lifestyles to my patients and family members but I adhere to it myself. The overwhelming majority of my patients who adopt this lifestyle enjoy improved health and cognition with improvements in lab measures like glucose, HbA1c, triglycerides and LDL —and most no longer need medications. I highly recommend Diet Doctor as a trusted resource for my patients and family for its cutting edge research and evidence based recommendations, diet plans, recipes, advice and community interaction.
I have been practicing in primary care for over 5 years now and the most rewarding part of my job is getting to help people REVERSE "chronic" disease with lifestyle changes and, often, WITHOUT medication! I get the honor of sitting with patients, one-on-one, to talk about their disease states and goals, explain the pathophysiology of the diseases and educate patients so they can take charge of their health, and be a part of their disease reversal and weight loss journey. Being a patient advocate is the highlight of my career, and I am humbled to be able to walk alongside people in this way.
Trinity Medical Associates 280 Fort Sanders West Blvd Ste 101 Knoxville TN United States 37922
I am a Lifestyle Endocrinologist who helps patients implement some form of therapeutic carb restriction in association with a continuous glucose monitor to improve and often reverse their type 2 diabetes. I believe any provider managing type 2 diabetes needs to be trained in the best treatment strategy for diabetes which is therapeutic carb restriction. I highly recommend the diet doctor CME course for this. I also recommend the diet doctor podcasts for physicians and the diet doctor recipe app for patients.
North Raleigh Endocrinology 6729 Falls on the Neuse Rd, Suite 200 Raleigh, NC USA 27615
As an osteopathic physician and exercise physiologist, I study natural law as manifested in anatomy and physiology and formulate treatment plans for patients that honor those ancient natural laws which govern health. I believe that therapeutic carbohydrate restriction honors those laws by eliminating dietary violations and promoting the inherent healing capacities in each of us. It is my utmost joy to help my patients find their health by implementing simple and individualized lifestyle plans including carbohydrate restriction diets and progressive exercise interventions
Osteopathic Physicians of the Potomac 10810 Darnestown Road Suite 205, Gaithersburg, Maryland United States 20878
I started using LCHF in Bermuda in early 2017 when we established the first Diabetes Reversal Program. Following its success, patients improved general well being, lost weight, reduced or stopped medications for not only type 2 diabetes, but hypertension, gout, cholesterol etc and improved erectile dysfunction and even neuropathy. I moved to Kenya (Jan 2019) to establish the same program and it's been a success. I also recommend the keto diet and iIntermittent fasting.
Metro Lipa Medical Center Tierra Vista Subdivision, Block15, Lot13, Brgy Sabang Lipa City, Batangas, Philippines 4217
We have been practicing low carb and intermittent dasting for optimal health and for disease conditions such as obesity, diabetes , dyslipidaemias, non-alcoholic fatty liver and polycystic ovary syndrome. In my private practice you can also get physical fitness training.
In the Ratnapura District of Sri Lanka, I have trained medical staff and started obesity Clinics in more than ten government hospitals. You can get tele-health counselling by us if you live further away or are unable to attend our clinics.

In my research in the field of diets and diabetes mellitus type 2, clinical
studies provided evidence of good effects of low-carb diets. In particular,
improved blood sugar control, reduced insulin doses, improved
inflammation parameters and also certain aspects of increased well-
being were observed in the participants. Based on my experiences and
available science, there are good reasons to recommend low-carb diets
to patients with type 2 diabetes.

I managed to completely reverse my own gut related health issues with a low carb diet and intermittent fasting. Since then low carb diets have been the basis for my work with most patients as a family physician and with all my patients working as a doctor in functional medicine. I make it a point to ask all my patients how and what they eat since it’s at the root of so many of our modern chronic diseases and ailments. Since the start, I have been a fond reader and proponent of Diet Doctor and I still recommend it daily to both patients, friends and family as a great source for free and unbound information related to diet.
Funktions Medicin (FunMed) Västra Hamngatan 13A 5TR, 41117 Göteborg
As a physician who developed type 1 diabetes in 1998 at the age of 38, I struggled to manage my blood sugar with conventional medical advice. I met Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt at a medical meeting in 2012 and have used Diet Doctor as an excellent source of information for both myself and my patients ever since. The low-carb diet resulted in a marked improvement in my blood sugar control and my entire outlook on life. I provide online coaching to people with diabetes who need individualized attention.
I was led to your website by my own personal fight against obesity and diabetes. Now I’m in the process of passing on this information to my patients but in French since most of my patients are French-speaking.
After struggling with weight my entire life, I was pointed in the direction of a low-carb diet by a group of other physicians — and it changed my life. As a family physician, it became clear to me how many of my patients could benefit from this lifestyle in so many ways. I spent time training with other doctors who had been practicing nutritional medicine with their patients for years, and learned how best to help my own patients. This is my passion, and being able to help change patients lives in this way is incredibly rewarding
Thanks to nutrition and the low-carb diet, which I fell in love with 21 years ago, I’ve witnessed in my private practice diabetes & metabolic syndrome improving or reversing; women with PCOS conceiving; memory problems getting better; and cancer patients achieving remarkable results. Since I found Diet Doctor, this health company has become my main resource and partner for inspiring and helping patients and family feed themselves to better health. When Diet Doctor asked me to be part of their Spanish team, I did not hesitate because empowering people to revolutionize their health is our common mission.
As a family doctor, I not only lost weight and improved my own health with the low-carb diet, I also inspired colleagues and patients alike to follow this lifestyle and reap its benefits. It has now become a powerful tool I use in my daily practice to help treat and reverse obesity, diabetes, fatty liver, PCOS, and chronic pain. I refer all my English-speaking patients to the Diet Doctor website and I also use it during visits as a counseling tool. Inspired by Diet Doctor, I have created my own website to cater to French-speaking patients!
Centre Hospitalier de Verdun CIUSS du Centre Sud de l’Île de Montréal
As a gastroenterologist & hepatologist in a large urban hospital I see significant value in educating my patients about diet and its effects on metabolic health. The vast majority of my patients have a poor understanding of macronutrients, the impact of sugar and simple carbohydrates, and nutritional labelling —and as a result have poor metabolic health. Fatty liver disease is a leading cause of cirrhosis; its incidence is rising significantly, burdening individual health and the health care system. It is, however, reversible with dietary counselling and low-carb eating. Thank you Diet Doctor for being a tremendous resource for my patients!
Credit Valley Hospital, Trillium Health Partners 509-2300 Eglinton Ave West Mississauga, Ontario Canada L5M 2V8
Over 60% of patients at my practice are overweight or obese & lifestyle disease is epidemic. In 2015 I decided to try an evidence-based nutrition program that uses LCHF & intermittent fasting tailored to each patients' needs. We use online presentations, a private social media group, appointments with our Nutrition Coach, & refer to the Diet Doctor website. The results are remarkable! Participants lose weight, improve biomarkers (e.g. blood sugars, inflammatory markers), & reduce or eliminate chronic disease medications. Thank you Diet Doctor for your excellent website and resources.
Trent Hills Family Health Team 119 Isabella St, Campbellford, ON K0L 1L0, Canada
Clinically, I use a low carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) focus as one avenue to help people who suffer with metabolic related disease. I also use LCHF principles to help my patients with weight loss when appropriate.
I have been recommending low-carb and ketogenic diets to my family practice and consultation patients since early 2017. Diet Doctor is an incredibly valuable resource for my patients; counseling low-carb would be much more difficult without all the great information available. My orthopaedic pre-habilitation, diabetes, mood disorder, Alzheimer’s, PCOS, cancer, and obese patients all benefit from low-carb. Low-carb has brought back the joy in family medicine!
Rocky Mountain Health #450 - 1000 Veterans Place NW Calgary, Alberta, Canada
As a prescribing pharmacist I have been using a low carb therapeutic nutrition approach in patients for over 6 years. After losing over 100lbs myself, I have dedicated my pharmacy practice to helping patients get healthy using diet. I use my expertise as a pharmacist to reduce and eliminate medications for a number of chronic conditions. I obtained my Additional Prescribing Authorization through the Alberta College of Pharmacists and am dedicated to making a difference in getting patients healthy. I have helped over 1000 patients lose almost 40,000 lbs and reduced countless medications
Redcliff Pharmasave #304 114 Broadway Ave E, Redcliff, AB T0J 2P0, Canada
I am an internist who used to suffer from obesity, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), hypertension and prediabetes. I used to live a miserable life and despite my technical competence as a physician nothing was helping me improve my quality of life. Then I heard about LCHF and everything changed overnight. My OSA improved within weeks and I took hold of conditions which were unmanageable before. Now after 2 years of LCHF and 45Kg loss of weight I know that this diet can work wonders with me and by extension should work for all my patients too.
Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Model Hospital Wana, South Waziristan Agency, Federally Administered Tribal Area, Pakistan
As a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner, I recommend a low-carb lifestyle to many of my patients with chronic conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome. I have seen the positive impact eating this way has made on the quality of life of my patients. Diet Doctor has been a helpful guide for myself and for my patients. I recommend this website to all of my patients
I've always had an active life-style, but after having three children in two years I was struggling to feel like myself. I began using keto and lost 30 lbs. Once I reached my goal weight, I transitioned to low carb. Not only did I lose weight, I now feel so much better. I used the resources provided by Diet Doctor to keep me on track. With patients struggling to lose weight, get control of their diabetes, PCOS, or hypertension, I encourage the use of low-carb/keto lifestyle and have had many great success stories and been able to de-medicate many people!
Gordon Rural Health Clinic 118 S Main St, Gordon, TX 76453, USA
With the low-carb, keto diet I lost over 50 pounds, reversed my type 2 diabetes and hypertension, and my psoriasis and plantar fasciitis disappeared! I also have bilateral Dupuytren’s contractures that are resolving with time. I am 7 years low carb now, almost 60, but I feel 35 again! I prescribe low carb diets for my patients to help them reverse chronic disease, too!
Joyful Heart House Calls 2903 Cape Horn Cir, Plattsmouth, NE 68048, USA
After years of practicing Family & Sports Medicine, I've recognized that preventing and addressing my patients' dietary metabolic issues are the foundation upon which quality medical and musculoskeletal care are built. LCHF principles produced such remarkable results in my patients that I completely redefined my scope of practice and developed a unique Lifestyle Medicine Program that synergistically complements my Sports Medicine & Non-Surgical Orthopedics specialty practice. I truly care for the whole person. Diet Doctor is an exceptional, comprehensive resource for lay persons and clinicians; I recommend it to all my patients and colleagues.
North Shore Physicians Group 104 Endicott St, Danvers, MA 01923, USA
I have always been passionate about preventative care for my patients and disease prevention. I redefined my career after recognizing the need for doctors outside the current traditional care who can help their patients with the prevention of obesity, obesity-related illnesses and focus on nutrition, exercise, and wellness. Being a medical bariatrician provides me with the tools to help my patients. Diet Doctor is a science-based, reliable, comprehensive, and consumer-friendly website. I particularly like the recipes, which are provided with nutritional analysis.
I work with individuals adopting a low carb/high fat or ketogenic diet to improve their health via virtual visits. If you need a compassionate, knowledgeable provider on your side to order labs and diagnostic tests, to adjust or taper down medications or to troubleshoot and teach, I am here for you! I service Colorado, Arizona, Washington and Oregon, and the state list is expanding. Visit me at my website to learn more and get the help you need today!
Pop-HealthCare and TeleHealthNP 8752 E Amherst Dr, Denver, CO 80231, USA
I see every day in my clinic the impact of nutrition and healthy lifestyle on reversing chronic disease. I recommend a low-carb approach as a powerful tool to improve and often reverse many chronic conditions such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, PCOS, depression, anxiety and prevention of cognitive impairment as well as an adjunct to cancer therapy. I combine nutrition, coaching and medicine to create the best patient outcomes and utilize Diet Doctor as an excellent resource to teach and provide support, including delicious recipes as well as the fast evolving science.
MindBody MED 3711 NE 45th St, Seattle, WA 98105, USA
I personally use cyclical keto and intermittent fasting for my own health and I recommend the low-carb, keto diet and fasting to all my patients with obesity, type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome. I recommend Diet Doctor for its great recipes and evidence-based information.
As a nephrologist, I have seen many patients with end-stage kidney failure resulting from diabetes and obesity. I decided to switch my career towards wellness, integrative medicine and obesity management. I now provide guidance for ketogenic and low-carb diets along with fasting to all patients in my clinic and via telehealth consultations. It is very rewarding to see their health improve and their medications reduced or eliminated. I refer all my patients to Diet Doctor on the first visit and I teach them also to use the recipes on the site. Thank you for providing an unbiased educational platform!
Apeiron Center for Human Potential 327 Congress Ave Suite #650 Austin, Texas 78701
As a psychiatrist who practices traditional and holistic (integrative) psychiatry, I find my patients are always looking for non-pharmacological ways to improve both their psychological and physical health. Diet Doctor has proven to be an excellent and reliable resource to help my patients develop and maintain healthy lifestyle choices with low-carb and ketogenic diets. My patients are thrilled with the extensive variety of recipe options that are easy to prepare as well as the informative videos on relevant health issues. I am equally thrilled with the positive benefits in my patients’ mood, anxiety, and cognitive clarity.
Institute for Medical Wellness 110 Marter Ave, Moorestown, NJ 08057, USA
I recommend low-carbohydrate, high-fat (ketogenic) diets to almost all my patients to improve their quality of life. The LCHF diet reduces inflammation, promotes weight loss, and improves blood biomarkers without prescription agents. The result is improved sleep, sharper mental clarity, more energy throughout the day, and healthier relationships to food. Most patients suffer "fat phobia" but fat does not make you fat! Sugar does! We teach patients to eat lots of healthy fats and cycle in and out of ketosis. We refer everyone to Diet Doctor as a great resource, especially for the carb contents of various food and drinks.
The Remedy Room 200 Metairie Rd, Metairie, LA 70005, USA
I strongly believe in the health benefits of low-carb lifestyles with the integration of intermittent fasting to reduce medication needs, increase energy, and live a more healthful life. This is an effective adjunct to improve inflammation, reduce weight, and improve chronic medical conditions, and with the proper medical guidance, these modalities can be safely integrated into one's life. I have seen dramatic success with my patients using both low-carb and ketogenic lifestyles, and frequently refer to Diet Doctor as an excellent resource for patients.
Kinetix Medical Weight Loss and Wellness 19900 Governors Dr, Olympia Fields, IL 60461, USA
I use body composition testing with personalized laboratory data to create custom biomarker panels for each client of Precision Medical Care. Fasting insulin levels, cortisol, glucose, kidney and liver function tests are measured and tracked with your lipid and hormone levels to optimize health, reverse pre-diabetes/diabetes and prevent heart attack, stroke and dementia. I create custom fasting protocols for each client and recommend targeted supplements to support magnesium, vitamin D, omega3 and zinc levels while supporting your hydration, electrolytes, energy and sleep, too.
Precision Medical Care 365 5th Ave S, Naples, FL 34102, USA
As a reproductive endocrinologist, I've been studying nutrition and fertility for over 15 years. I advise all my patients, both women and men, to adopt a low-carb ketogenic diet prior to pregnancy to improve their fertility and during pregnancy to improve fetal and maternal health. This way of eating has been shown repeatedly in my practice to improve all measures of health for women and men. We refer all our patients to Diet Doctor which in our opinion is the best online resource for our patients to find all the information, recipes and meal plans they need to be successful.
Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine 6800 NW 9th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32605, USA
I recommend low- carb diets as they are scientifically proven to work effectively and reverse many symptoms related to metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and other chronic illnesses. I recommend Diet Doctor to my patients for reliable information
Medical Weight Loss Management Program River Street, Sleepy Hollow, New York 10591, United States
I encounter many patients who are interested in LCHF and are finding benefit in weight reduction, better diabetes control, improved endurance and energy levels, and improved lipid profiles. There is a great deal of confusion out there about the diet, much of it based on outdated science or an incomplete understanding of the topic. I feel that I owe it to patients to be informed about LCHF so that I can advise them on the risks and benefits it could have for them.
By personalizing variations of low-carb or keto diets, with or without various types of fasting, my patients inspire others as they lose weight, feel better, and improve or even reverse disease and inflammation. There are many ways to individualize this way of life. Diet Doctor is a useful resource for patients and for other healthcare providers. Whether they are looking for some recipes and ideas for meals, a complete meal plan and shopping list for a two-week jump start, or they just want to keep learning more about low carb, keto and intermittent fasting, they can find trustworthy useful answers.
1030 N Clark St #647, Chicago, IL 60610, United States
I prescribe low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diets to my patients as an option to both treat and attempt to reverse many chronic diseases of our modern age. I have found this to be a very powerful tool for patients to regain their health and wellbeing in conjunction with other important lifestyle changes (exercise and stress reduction). I use the Diet Doctor website every day with these patients during the actual office visit as well using it as a teaching tool during my monthly group lifestyle classes. The website is very thorough and easy for patients to understand and use.
I recommend low-carb and ketogenic diets to my patients who want to lose weight permanently, particularly those who have weight-related medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, lower limb joint arthritis, metabolic syndrome, and high triglycerides. Why? Because they work! I visit the Diet Doctor website daily because it's science-based, reliable, comprehensive, and consumer-friendly. I particularly like the recipes, which are provided with nutritional analysis.
I support patients desiring a low-carb lifestyle to help improve their general health. I also assist with medication and surgical management for weight loss in a multi-disciplinary, large, insurance-based weight loss clinic.
Scripps Clinic 12395 El Camino Real, San Diego, CA 92130, USA
As one of the few pediatricians who works closely with an internist who treats adults, I see first-hand where the obese children will be in 10-20 years. I became frustrated and angry at the wrong dietary guidelines and pushing for medications and surgeries instead of prevention. As a pediatrician, I think obesity prevention should start in childhood years. I am a firm believer that the low-carb modification is what the standard American diet needs. In my office, our approach is dietary based and with compassion, we choose lifestyle changes not diets or pills.
Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine 2222 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404, USA
Real food — that is low-sugar, high-fiber —works for most of the population, but some patients may need a low-carb diet for best results. For those patients, I am totally for low-carb. I have certainly had many insulin resistant patients who didn't get better until they went on a low-carb diet. I am not remotely concerned about negative effects of low-carb. I feel that, aside from patients with familial hypercholesterolemia and type 5 hyperlipidemia, a low-carb diet is entirely safe.
University of California, San Francisco 1975 4th St, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Through my 31 years in primary care, I have witnessed the growing waistlines and blood sugar levels of my patients. Seeing that the “eat less, move more” advice was failing them, I moved to a low-carb, high-fat approach eight years ago. This has produced great results in my patients. I am able to manage many medical issues without resorting to medications. This new approach has revitalized my practice. I feel like I can finally really help my patients.
DuPage Medical Group 150 E Willow Ave, Wheaton, IL 60187, USA
As a family doctor, I see the consequences of the standard American diet on a daily basis. Many of the conditions I treat are due to, or complicated by, poor metabolic health. Conversations with my patients center around reducing processed, high-sugar foods and advocating for a whole-food, low-carbohydrate diet. This lifestyle reduces the need for medication and reverses chronic metabolic disease such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension. I recommend the Diet Doctor website to all my patients because it is comprehensive, reliable and easy to understand. A low-carb diet is sustainable, enjoyable and central to finding health and balance.
Fulcrum Family Health 42 Mallett Dr, Freeport, ME 04032, USA
I became interested in the science behind the low-carb, keto diet in 2017 when I started seeing patients who were losing weight, reducing medications and reversing diabetes. Since then I have researched papers, attended two low-carb conferences in Denver, and finished an obesity management course through American Association of Physician Assistants (AAPA). I have seen first hand the health benefits, including weight loss, reversal of insulin resistance, reduction in joint inflammation, improvement in acid-reflux, sleep, energy, and more. Coaching patients on their low-carb journey is my favorite thing to do.
Harrison Family Medicine 1100 Southgate, Pendleton, OR 97801, USA
I recommend variations of low-carb and keto diets as well as fasting to my patients with metabolic conditions. A growing body of evidence supports a low carb lifestyle with intermittent fasting in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases such as diabetes. I began implementing this treatment in my clinic and have achieved phenomenal results. I, too, changed my lifestyle to include low-carb eating and intermittent fasting. I recommend websites, books, podcasts and social media sites to my patients to help further their education.
Teresa Mealy Total Health and Wellness LLC 1200 E Woodhurst Dr H-400, Springfield, MO 65804, USA
As a family physician, I have been treating patients with low-carb and keto diets since 2013. I have seen these diets consistently produce remarkable results for numerous medical conditions, especially type 1 and 2 diabetes, obesity, fatty liver, IBS, PCOS, GERD, asthma, hypertension, migraines, coronary artery disease, and dyslipidemia. I can’t count the times that my patients are able to get off multiple medications after implementing a low-carb diet; the most common remark I hear is that they just overall feel better! I recommend my patients to Diet Doctor daily.
LAKEWOOD HEALTH SYSTEM 49725 County 83, Staples, MN 56479, USA
The low-carb, high-fat diet has re-energized my clinical interest in the treatment of diabetes, obesity, and other chronic conditions relating to insulin resistance. Guiding my patients on their journey to reclaim their health, wellness, and vitality with the prescription of real food brings me the utmost joy. Witnessing the transformative impact of this lifestyle has given me hope for the future health of our patients and communities.
Essentia Health 2024 S 6th St, Brainerd, MN 56401, USA
As a chronic pain physician I routinely recommend low carbohydrate eating as a lifestyle for my patients. I am a fan of intermittent fasting as well. I have had success with chronic pain patients who are determined to be well.
University Pain Clinic of Rochester 1000 W University Dr, Rochester Hills, MI 48307, USA
I started a low-carb, high-fat diet for myself in an attempt to treat my own health problems. Since then, I have seen significant health benefits not only in myself but also in many of my patients using a LCHF/ketogenic approach. Diet Doctor gives a simple but very effective evidence-based resource that I confidently recommend to all my patients. And the recipes are great!
WMED Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine Western Michigan University Medical School W.E. Upjohn Campus, 300 Portage Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49007, USA
It has been an exciting and rewarding journey to discover the power of nutrition in improving health and well-being, both in myself and in my patients. In the past two years I have been exploring and practicing a low-carb ketogenic lifestyle. I see the benefits for myself and am amazed at the dramatic improvement I see in my patients. I encourage everyone to explore and learn deeply. Diet Doctor is one of the top resources".
Bronson LakeView Family Care 451 Health Pkwy, Paw Paw, MI 49079, USA
I have personally followed a low-carb, keto diet for over 20 years for my own health, and have used it for over 15 years with patients, primarily for weight loss. Recently, I have found the medical version of the ketogenic diet to have antipsychotic effects and mood benefits in patients with chronic mental illness, so I'm pioneering the clinical use of the ketogenic diet in psychiatry. I often recommend Diet Doctor to patients, friends, and family as a trustworthy resource for weight loss versions of the diet. For the treatment of serious mental illness, I recommend working with a trained clinician.
McLean Hospital 115 Mill St, Belmont, MA 02478, USA
I prescribe ketogenic whole-foods diets because they are powerful metabolic interventions with the potential to address root causes of psychiatric disorders, including inflammation, oxidation, and insulin resistance. I enthusiastically recommend the Diet Doctor website to all my patients because it is the most comprehensive resource for low-carb news, advice, science, inspiration and support in the world. The information there is trustworthy, easy to understand, available in multiple formats and languages, and funded entirely by the people.
I learned about low-carb eating in the mid-1990s and soon began applying it to myself and my patients. Personally, the diet has enabled me to stave off my genetic destiny of obesity and diabetes and feel much better. My patients -- those who embrace the diet and continue long term -- have benefited tremendously in the control and reversal of weight issues and other chronic medical conditions, particularly diabetes and heart disease. In fact, nothing I have done in medicine has been more rewarding than the results I have seen in patients who adhere to a low-carb, real food diet!
The Center for Medical Weight Loss 2360 W Joppa Rd, Lutherville-Timonium, MD 21093, USA
I have been a supporter of a low-carb lifestyle that includes intermittent fasting for myself and my patients for years. I am part of our health systems Medicine Residency program. I teach physicians-in-training and medical staff to utilize low-carb and keto dieting to improve the health of their patients and reduce their need for medications. Diet Doctor is an excellent resource for patients and physicians to help patients help themselves to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Greater Baltimore Medical Center 6701 Charles St, Towson, MD 21204, USA
I have been recommending low-carbohydrate diets for the last three years to my patients and my medical colleagues. As a family medicine-trained physician who specializes in pain medicine, I see the impact of people’s diets and obesity on their pain levels and function. Using dietary approaches to treat chronic and complex conditions provides wide ranging improvements in my patients' health, pain levels, and quality of life. I send patients and colleagues alike to Diet Doctor for its collection of comprehensive educational resources including articles, recipes, and videos.
WCMP Primary Care 119 Northport Ave FL 1, Belfast, ME 04915, USA
Most of what I see in the emergency department is 100% preventable by simple lifestyle changes. This realization has prompted me to pursue training in the field of obesity medicine. I regularly direct my patients and colleagues to Diet Doctor for information on how to get started with a low-carbohydrate diet and time-restricted feeding.
Maine General Medical Center 35 Medical Center Pkwy, Augusta, ME 04330, USA
Obesity is a metabolic issue that can severely damage people's health and their ability to live their life to the fullest. A low-carb diet is a great way to lose weight — especially for those people who are dealing with diabetes or pre-diabetes! I frequently recommend Diet Doctor as a resource for my patients on their journey to living a healthier life!
Health Connections Direct Primary Care 527 Centre View Blvd, Crestview Hills, KY 41017, USA
Two years ago I was successful in losing 60 pounds using Low Carb High Fat. After seeing the huge improvements in my health I began to use this in my medical practice. I see evidence every day how much insulin resistance affects the health of my patients — diabetes, hypertension, obesity, fatty liver, hypertension, PCOS and more. I am passionate about using LCHF to improve my patients’ health. I take a holistic approach and recommend a whole food diet. I love being able to recommend lifestyle changes that actually work. Dietdoctor.com is at the heart of my education for my patients.
Family Practice Associates 120 W Ross Blvd, Dodge City, KS 67801, USA
At our clinic we often recommend a low-carb or keto lifestyle to a wide range of our patients — from children with special needs, to adults with diabetes, to the elderly experiencing cognitive decline. I have seen patients get off five or more prescription medications, sleep better, improve their energy levels, and so much more. We strongly believe low-carb is a long-term, sustainable lifestyle that's beneficial to many.
Prairie Health & Wellness 12115 E 21st St N, Wichita, KS 67206, USA
I am a Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician with an additional certification in Obesity Medicine. I have a special emphasis on preconception weight loss and treatment of PCOS with lifestyle interventions, specifically intermittent fasting and low-carb. Lifestyle is the most under-utilized treatment we have. I have a passion for combining my knowledge of fertility, women's health, and lifestyle medicine to achieve optimal outcomes.
Midwest Women's & Children's Specialty Group 3510 Clinton Pkwy Pl, Lawrence, KS 66047, USA
I am Board Certified in obesity-related disorders as well as lipidology. I focus on providing patients with individualized metabolic management plans to help maintain energy-filled lifestyles and reverse disease processes such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and polycystic ovarian syndrome. I offer medical management to maximize fat loss with preservation and/or gain of lean mass with programs that are with and without exercise. We participate with the majority of insurance plans.
Women's & Family Care, LLC 21624 Midland Dr, Shawnee, KS 66218, USA
Our practice leverages the power of Functional Medicine with a whole food, plant-based “flexitarian” low-carb or ketogenic diet. We’ve practiced this way of eating ourselves for several years and are quite familiar with its power, as well as the potential pitfalls. Wholeheartedly, we believe this diet along with incorporating intermittent fasting is the most powerful tool to reverse and prevent chronic disease. In addition to diet, we endorse modifying lifestyle factors such as stress management, sleep, physical activity, and social engagement to achieve lasting health outcomes.
Indiana Center for Functional Medicine 3209 Smith Valley Rd, Greenwood, IN 46142, USA
It is becoming more apparent that cancer is just another metabolic disease and that insulin and IGF-1 act as cancer growth factors. There is so much science showing that a very-low-carbohydrate diet is more effective at lowering insulin levels than other diets. I educate my patients that diet it is not just about weight but more importantly about metabolic health. I have a number of resources that I recommend to patients and Diet Doctor is at the top of my list.
Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center 4405 Weaver Pkwy, Warrenville, IL 60555, USA
I treat women with gynecologic cancers and recommend a ketogenic or low-carb, high-fat diet for almost all of my cancer patients. Many of them have been shown to benefit from this dietary approach as an adjunct to their chemotherapy or radiation and others benefit in survivorship and during active cancer prevention.
Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group 25 N Winfield Rd, Winfield, IL 60190, USA
As a gastroenterologist, I believe that the gut is the gateway to good health. Common gastrointestinal conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) may be managed effectively with a low-carbohydrate/high fat (ketogenic) diet. Many patients have positively transformed their health (inside and out!) by living a low-carbohydrate/high fat lifestyle. The Diet Doctor website is an outstanding resource that provides science-based guidance for patients and health care providers.
Kapolei Endoscopy Clinic 590 Farrington Hwy, Kapolei, HI 96707, USA
At The Keto Prescription Clinic, Dr. Russell Yang and I have used low-carb, high-fat diets to improve and reverse a multitude of conditions. Each patient is taught how to keto correctly and is provided with food lists, disease state education, point-of-care testing, and ongoing coaching in a variety of formats. We individualize our approach to each patient to accommodate cultural and socioeconomic influences because it's important to create a plan that lasts. Our goal is better health using food as medicine.
The Keto Prescription Clinic 1650 Liliha St, Honolulu, HI 96817, USA
After a decade of watching patients with chronic disease get sicker with traditional medical advice, discovering the effectiveness of low-carb was a breath of fresh air! My practice now focuses entirely on patients wishing to follow low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diet treatment for diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and other weight-related concerns. I also use ketogenic diets for the treatment of weight-loss surgery patients who regain weight. Diet Doctor is a terrific resource for patients and for the medical students I teach in my Obesity Medicine clerkship; it has nutritionally and scientifically sound information on ketogenic lifestyles and great recipes.
Pali Momi Medical Center 98-1079 Moanalua Rd, Aiea, HI 96701, USA
I am professionally trained in the LCHF way of eating by way of the Nutrition Network LCHF Training course. I am also a Certified Obesity Medicine Specialist and a member of the American Obesity Association. I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn delivering Gynecolgic care in Plantation, FL for over 15 years. I have personally lost 65 pounds and live a LCHF lifestyle. I have maintained my weightloss for over 12 years. I have had great success using LCHF in my practice with patients suffering with overweight and PCOS.
A New Life Ob/Gyn of Broward 220 SW 84th Ave, Plantation, FL 33324, USA
For five years now, I’ve been changing my life and the life of my patients in a rural area of Delaware using the LCHF diet with intermittent fasting. My patients have been achieving not only their weight loss goals, but improving their medical conditions associated with obesity. It is very satisfying to explain the science behind the diet and see their faces light up at the possibility of finally improving their health and reducing their medications and medical costs. Diet Doctor, all this time, has been a valued resource with easy to navigate content and great science.
Nanticoke Weight Loss 8472 Herring Run Rd, Seaford, DE 19973, USA
I follow and recommend a low-carb or keto lifestyle, with and without intermittent fasting, to all of my patients whether or not they have lifestyle-related chronic conditions. I do this because of the health benefits to anyone who follows them, but also because of the science behind them and the impressive clinical results I have seen in my patients. I have recommended the Diet Doctor website for the past 5-6 years as a first-stop to find completely trustworthy information, delicious recipes, great visuals and excellent videos.
Direct Family Care of Northern Colorado 126 W Harvard St, Fort Collins, CO 80525, USA
As a physician I was frustrated and distressed by patients' worsening health and by the spiralling health care costs caused by diabetes, obesity and other chronic conditions, all linked to the food we eat. We help our patients improve their health and optimize their weight with prescribed lifestyle modification, teaching them the link between unhealthy, refined and processed foods and chronic illness. Our growing database of patients who have lost weight and improved cardio-metabolic markers demonstrates the benefits of low-carbohydrate, whole-food diets. In short, reducing the carbohydrate content of our meals controls hunger, promotes weight loss, and improves health.
Suburban Family Medicine 7720 S Broadway, Littleton, CO 80122, USA
The mission of Diet Doctor says it all: Make low-carb and keto simple. For over a decade the website has been an invaluable resource for evidence-based nutritional advice and support for anyone seeking to lose weight and improve health with diet. And the results speak for themselves. By building a nutritional safe harbor, available to anyone, anywhere, anytime, Dr. Eenfeldt and the Diet Doctor team have revolutionized the delivery of nutritional information for the greater good of a world that needs it desperately.
I practice preventative care and general primary care with a focus on lifestyle modification and nutrition. I generally recommend a low carbohydrate whole-foods-based diet, emphasizing intermittent fasting which I call The Sapien Diet. At Evolve we have had incredible patient outcomes with this ancestral health approach to medicine.
Evolve Healthcare 20301 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, USA
Being fortunate to have been trained by pioneers of the low-carb movement and obesity medicine experts, I began employing low-carb and keto approaches several years ago as powerful therapeutic tools for those struggling with psychiatric illness and poor metabolic health. Observing remarkable clinical benefits, I recognized the need for a new focus within my field and founded the Metabolic Psychiatry Clinic to address this gap. I also formally study this approach by directing ongoing clinical trials in this area. I am grateful for Diet Doctor as it has been a useful resource to my patients.
Department of Psychiatry Stanford University School Of Medicine West Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA
It all started with Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. I read the book twice, the second time reading many of the referenced articles. Since then, I have recommended low-carb and keto diets with and without intermittent fasting to almost all of my patients who have lifestyle-related chronic conditions. I often suggest that patients start their journey at Diet Doctor. Professionally, the most difficult issue remains dietary modifications for patients in the hospital. As more data is collected I hope we see a change in institutional culture — cheese omelets instead of cornflakes and skim milk for breakfast!
Loma Linda University Medical Center and Children's Hospital 11175 Campus St, Loma Linda, CA 92350, USA
A low-carbohydrate lifestyle transformed my health by normalizing my glucose levels. As a person with type 1 diabetes I struggled for years with low and high blood sugars despite advances in conventional treatment modalities. I gladly assist patients in a journey to optimal health by providing education and medical supervision of nutritional therapy and fasting.
Success is best depicted with a story: patient, 61 years and 294lbs, referred by cardiologist after failed LapBand surgery. We started phentermine and calorie-restricted, moderate-carb diet. He lost 16lbs but stalled for 18 months … despite phentermine, Contrave, Tenuate, Topamax, 5HTP-Carbidopa. Unexpectedly his ankylosing spondylitis flared and he almost went blind! "Start the ketogenic diet," I said. His vision cleared as the inflammation subsided. He lost another 76lbs in 9 months! “This is the first time in my life I'm not the biggest guy in the room,” he says. More importantly, his ankylosing spondylitis won't make him blind and crippled.
Dr. Marlowe's Weight Loss Institute 411 Billingsley Rd STE 104, Charlotte, NC 28211, USA
Diabetes and metabolic syndrome are rampant in my community, so I prescribe a very low-carb, high-fat diet to many of my patients. This way of eating has resulted in many successes, such as stopping or reduce my patients' medications. I have spread the LCHF word by giving lectures to our doctors and nutritionists. As a result, a ketogenic diet nutritionist in our organization now gives classes to patients and our endocrinologist is also on board. I give out Diet Doctor information to almost all my patients and it is truly a big resource in my practice.
Southwest Medical 4475 S Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89119, USA
As an internist and obesity management specialist, I believe that prevention and reversal of chronic disease is the most underutilized aspect of medicine. I embrace a low-carbohydrate lifestyle to help my patients lose weight, reverse disease and take control of their health in a safe, sustainable (and enjoyable!) way.
SoWell Health 308 E 38th St, New York, NY 10016, USA
As an interventional pain physician, in addition to cutting-edge techniques I use nutritional strategies to deliver people from a cycle of pain and disability. Chronic pain may result from inflammation and metabolic disarray; it intersects every part of life and is an illness as much as it is a symptom. Obesity and aging are inflammatory processes at the root of many pain-inducing chronic diseases. I suggest anti-inflammatory, low-carb, ketogenic diets and fasting protocols to optimize patients’ health. Diet Doctor is a great resource for patients compliant with this lifestyle.
Columbia University, NYPH 622 W 168th St, New York, NY 10032, USA
I recommend a high-fat, low-protein, ultra-low to no-carbohydrate diet with intermittent fasting to my fertility patients. Immunologic dysfunction can contribute to recurrent pregnancy loss and infertility. One of the easiest ways to improve immunologic function is to reduce inflammation throughout the body. The keto diet does this. I use Diet Doctor myself and recommend it to patients as a valuable resource.
CNY Fertility 195 Intrepid Ln, Syracuse, NY 13205, USA
As a board certified physician practicing internal and obesity medicine, I reclaimed my health and lost over 150 pounds by ignoring conventional medical advice. I now focus on diabetes, hypertension and lipid management through lifestyle and dietary modifications whenever possible. As well as seeing patients in my clinic, I provide remote consultations via tele-medicine software and equipment, utilizing remotely-tracked bio-impedance scales, blood pressure cuffs and continuous glucose monitoring devices.
Dr. Tro's Medical Weight Loss & Direct Primary Care 84 NY-303, Tappan, NY 10983, USA
I have been advocating for a ketogenic low-carb healthy fats diet for six months now with remarkable results. I use the Diet Doctor website to review general concepts of the diet and also refer patients to the site's excellent guides and videos. I also use Dr. Eric Westman's four-page sheet of foods to eat and what not to eat.
Beaver River Health Center 9559 Main St, Beaver Falls, NY 13305, USA
I have been recommending a low-carbohydrate lifestyle as the foundation of treatment for many medical conditions ever since 1999, when I first became associated with the Atkins' Center for Complementary Medicine and then became the center's medical director. I founded my own Center for Balanced health in 2003 to further provide patients with expertise in both traditional and complementary medicine, featuring low-carbohydrate nutrition. The Diet Doctor website is an excellent resource for individuals seeking to adopt a low-carbohydrate lifestyle.
Center for Balanced Health 425 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10017, USA
Understanding the psyche of being an obese diabetic, my personal journey with a low-carb, high-fat way of eating has led me to lose 50 lbs, improve my energy and mental clarity, and reverse my diabetes since I started in February 2019. My journey is not over yet, but experiencing this success has led me to learn as much as possible and teach others so they can regain control of their health.
Chung Institute of Integrative Medicine 110 Marter Ave, Moorestown, NJ 08057, USA
Over the last four and a half years I personally adopted the LCHF lifestyle to help treat my own chronic metabolic disorders. I developed a pamphlet that explains the program developed by Dr. Eric Westman and includes the Diet Doctor website information as well. My success has surely incentivized many of my patients to try and adopt the LCHF lifestyle for themselves.
Avenel-Iselin Medical Group 400 Gill Ln, Iselin, NJ 08830, USA
A lower-carbohydrate diet and lifestyle has not only changed my personal health for the better, but also the health of my family and my patients. The low-carb ketogenic lifestyle has also transformed my medical practice from a traditional sick-care office to an Integrative Wellness practice that focuses on improving people’s health and preventing illness. I enjoy going into work every day as I now feel I am truly preventing chronic diseases from taking root via proper nutritional counseling. I send virtually all my patients to Diet Doctor for help getting started on their own low-carb journey.
Institute for Medical Wellness 110 Marter Ave, Moorestown, NJ 08057, USA
As a doctor, I struggled with similar metabolic conditions to my patients. Despite my best efforts in diet and exercise, I gained weight and developed pre-diabetes. Adopting a low-carb diet and intermittent fasting, my extra pounds came off effortlessly and my pre-diabetes resolved. Now I coach all my patients at risk of or with conditions like fatty liver, PCOS, pre-diabetes, diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol dysfunction, and obesity how to nourish their bodies and obtain good health & wellbeing through lifestyle changes. This is highly rewarding medicine, fulfilling the reason I chose to become a doctor in the first place.
Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic 4220 N Roxboro St, Durham, NC 27704, USA
I recommend Diet Doctor to all my patients. With witnessing the epidemic of NAFLD/NASH/Cirrhosis, IBS, GERD, SIBO, rising rates of colon cancer in a younger population and obesity, we must take action now. I believe the power of dietary change cannot be underestimated. Patients are grateful for this information
Pinehurst Medical Clinic 15 Regional Dr, Pinehurst, NC 28374, USA
At the Duke Diet and Fitness Center, our residential clients can choose from three levels of carb intake that happen to be aligned with the Diet Doctor’s levels of liberal low-carb, moderate low-carb and keto low-carb. The alignment is not by chance, however. It’s because we have separately come to the same conclusions after carefully and objectively reviewing the evidence and gathering information from experienced clinicians and patients. The Diet Doctor website is very unique in that regard, and a great resource for our patients!
Duke University Diet and Fitness Center 501 Douglas St, Durham, NC 27705, USA
I have been a proponent of low carb keto eating before it had a name. We in endocrinology have successfully used this framework to treat overweight and diabetes long before the discovery of insulin. I have a strong background in biochemistry and physiology as well as personalized genomics to optimize executive performance through a focused approach to nutrition, exercise and lifestyle modifications.
Endocrinology Associates, Inc 72 W 3rd Ave, Columbus, OH 43201, USA
Throughout my years of practicing dermatology, I have noted an increased demand for alternative or complementary approaches to traditional treatments. Inflammation is more than just skin deep for many of my patients and affects multiple aspects of their health. Following my own personal success with significant weight loss and control over inflammatory conditions utilizing a ketogenic diet, I now recommend a ketogenic, low-carbohydrate, healthy-fat diet for many of my patients with inflammatory skin conditions including acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center 5783 Wooster Pike, Medina, OH 44256, USA
I discovered the low-carb lifestyle after struggling myself with my obesity for many years. I was unsuccessful in losing weight with the traditional low-fat diet plans that I used to recommend to patients. I researched and reviewed the studies of low-carb/keto eating and I lost weight, becoming a much healthier doctor. I am now passing on that experience onto my patients! When I counsel patients not familiar with low-carb living, I refer them to the Diet Doctor site for testimonials, recipes, and much more.
Holzer Health System 209 S Lamar St, Jackson, MS 39201, USA
I recommend a ketogenic diet as a powerful tool to treat diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, metabolic syndrome and obesity in general. Oftentimes I am able to wean patients off most of their medications and have seen dramatic improvement in their health as a result of this diet. I recommend Diet Doctor to my patients on a regular basis as a resource to help them eat a ketogenic diet.
I’ve personally struggled with my weight since childhood and failed the traditional diets I was taught in medical school. Unfortunately, I have seen a rise in obese children and have yet to see a single success through the standard recommendations. I discovered the low carb lifestyle myself and have restored my health beyond the numbers on the scale. I became certified through the Nutrition Network to re-educate myself and now confidently prescribe this lifestyle to my patients and their families not only for weight loss, but for prevention, mental health, skin conditions and so much more.
Sunshine Pediatrics West Jefferson Professional Building, 487 W Main St Ste A, West Jefferson, OH 43162, USA
As a pediatrician practicing for the past 24 years, I spend most of my clinical time caring for children with chronic behavioral, developmental, psychological or metabolic conditions (ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Tourette’s Syndrome, Autism, Autoimmune Disease, Obesity, NAFLD, etc.). A well-planned, low carbohydrate (and in many cases ketogenic) nutrition plan is a very powerful tool that I use with my patients to address both physical and mental health. I so appreciate Diet Doctor and reference it frequently for my patients as the best resource for this topic. This site is commercial free, well-supported, referenced and frequently updated.
Pediatric Associates of Fairfield 5502 Dixie Hwy, Fairfield, OH 45014, USA
I have been applying low carb solutions to metabolic problems since the moment I closed the cover of Good Calories, Bad Calories. I share with my low-carb colleagues the wonderful experience of offering effective advice and seeing real results. In addition to metabolic and hormonal problems, I have more recently focused on flexible low-carb approaches for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative conditions. I greatly enjoy the lively online low-carb community and rely on Diet Doctor as a resource for myself and my patients.
Northwest Memory Center 635 Lit Way, Ashland, OR 97520, USA
I am determined to shatter the chiding "eat less, exercise more" obesity medicine paradigm. Obesity is not a personal failure, but a chronic health condition unfolding in our country and around the world. It is a result of the "carboholic" society we live in. Through a holistic approach, I arm patients with knowledge, tools, and skills to manage their weight as well as their overall health.
Southwest Family Physicians 11900 SW Greenburg Rd, Tigard, OR 97223, USA
I have been practicing LCHF, time-restricted eating, and intermittent fasting both personally and professionally since 2012, after realizing the current treatment paradigm for metabolic disease is not sustainable. I particularly enjoy developing personalized approaches for my patients to prevent, treat, and reverse the disease of obesity. My additional interests include using low-carb, lifestyle medicine to treat metabolic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, as well as depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
Kaiser Permanente West Salem Medical Office 1160 Wallace Rd NW, Salem, OR 97304, USA
I treat patients with cancer, specializing in breast cancer. I also perform clinical research on the interactions between diet, cancer, and exercise, and advise my patients on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for helping to prevent and reduce the risk of cancer by promoting a healthy metabolism. These recommendations include a general reduction in carbohydrates, including low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets, based on the available literature that supports this approach. I also recommend that patients take control of their own health by educating themselves with sources that provide evidence-based recommendations and scientific reviews.
Duke Cancer Center 20 Duke Medicine Cir, Durham, NC 27710, USA
As an internist specializing in obesity medicine, until I discovered the low-carb lifestyle, the only effective tools I had to offer patients for weight loss were medications or a referral to a surgeon. Now, I am taking them off of medications and celebrating improvements such as the remission of diabetes, obesity, hypertension, fatty liver disease, musculoskeletal pain, sleep apnea, increased energy – the list goes on and on! I take every patient through the Diet Doctor website at their initial visit to introduce them to the basic concepts and show them what an amazing resource it is.
Jefferson Comprehensive Weight Management Program at Bala 225 E City Ave, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004, USA
I am a hospitalist/primary care doctor and also a specialist in obesity. As I see it, nutrition and other lifestyle factors are at the root of most of the diseases I treat. My own health issues corrected with LCHF. I went on to recommend LCHF to my patients, who have since experienced a wide variety of improved outcomes. Face-to-face time with patients is frustratingly short so simply writing "DietDoctor.com" on slip of paper and handing it to patients is a great way to set them in the direction of trustworthy diet information.
PMA Medical Specialists 410 W Linfield-Trappe Rd, Royersford, PA 19468, USA
I am amazed at what a low-carbohydrate diet can do in real life and in my oncology practice. I see many cases of difficult to treat cancers, and know full-well the limitations of conventional chemotherapy. When patients ask about the ketogenic diet and cancer, I point out our recently concluded clinical trial that showed the ketogenic diet to be safe in advanced cancer patients and possibly beneficial in improving quality of life and survival. The diet, together with regular cancer treatment, could be a win-win combination. Diet Doctor is a fabulous website, chock full of information!
Veterans Affairs Pittsburgh Health System University Drive C, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA
As a family doctor, I learned that my patients could lose weight and keep it off with the ketogenic diet; I began recommending it in 2016. Many of my patients have used this diet to reverse metabolic diseases that they had been told were life-long and progressive.
The Berry Clinic 30 E Main St, Camden, TN 38320, USA
I have personally used the low-carb ketogenic lifestyle to reverse my pre-diabetes and achieve and maintain a healthy weight. I now counsel my patients about the lifestyle and am seeing some impressive results. I write a blog to aid the patients in their efforts at ymoore4health.wordpress.com.
Mestemacher Clinic For Women 7918 Wolf River Blvd, Germantown, TN 38138, USA
For many years, I struggled personally with my own weight. My search for help led me to discover ketogenic eating and a low-carb approach to my diet. After losing 60 pounds and gaining 20 pounds of lean muscle mass, I have continued cyclical ketogenic eating as a way of life not just a "diet". My commitment to helping patients reclaim their health inspired me to obtain an additional board certification in Obesity Medicine. With this additional training and weight loss expertise, I have helped hundreds of patients achieve their weight loss goals.
The Transformation Doctor 2150 W Poplar Ave, Germantown, TN 38139, USA
I have been having great success using low carb diets for the improvement of weight and health. A weight based approach to health is a natural way to improve health without medications. My patients enjoy learning from the Diet Doctor while following a low-carb approach.
The University of Colorado School of Medicine; Rocky Mountain Family Practice 205 S Main St Suite B, Longmont, CO 80501, USA
I personally have followed a low carb-high healthy fat diet for the last five years and have seen the significant benefits — specifically, an elevation in the previous low HDL that is often seen in spinal cord injury.
Capron Neuro & Trauma Rehabilitation Center; St. Francis Medical Center 6011 E Woodmen Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80923, USA
Nutrition has been a major part of my practice for the past 12 years. I completed a fellowship at the University of Arizona in integrative medicine and am a diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. I have completed core modules from the Institute of Functional Medicine. Being a women's health provider I have used LCHF diet as integral component for treatment of PCOS, gestational diabetes, fatigue, depression, GI disorders, and weight loss.
Lifestyle Medicine Specialists of Palm Beach 3319 S State Rd 7, Wellington, FL 33449, USA
Formerly 294 lbs with numerous health problems like hypertension, sleep apnea, prediabetes, arthritis. I started studying Obesity in 2013. In October 2014 I had bariatric surgery (a vertical sleeve gastrectomy). During my recovery I found Dr Westman's No Sugar No Starch diet. At first I made mistakes but now I've got it. And EVERYTHING IS BETTER! I visited Dr Westman in his clinic in August 2015, I joined the Obesity Medicine Association in 2015. I took the Board exam for Obesity Medicine in December 2015. I now practice exclusively Obesity Medicine and I am practicing the best medicine of my life.
PPG Comprehensive Obesity Medicine/Piedmont Healthcare 2001 Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA 30309, USA
As a board-certified pediatrician practicing for over 2 decades, I rank the low-carb, keto lifestyle, along with vaccination and breastfeeding, as the most important tools in my toolbox to promote health. In 2016, attempting to help my daughter control her epilepsy, I found new data suggesting less intense keto diets could improve seizure control. I have since witnessed great success with this nutritional lifestyle approach in my daughter as well as patients, friends and family. Diet Doctor is an amazing resource that compiles all in one site the information I had to hunt for when I started this journey
Esse Health Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine 9580 Watson Rd Suite A, St. Louis, MO 63126, USA
Med*Thin offers physician-directed weight loss with the desire for every patient to achieve optimal health, a sense of community and belonging, while celebrating each individuals' inherent and unique value, beauty and dignity. We recommend the low-carb/ high healthy fat lifestyle because of its many benefits for diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver, weight loss, and more. We use Diet Doctor for its visual guides, clear explanations, recipe ideas, and lack of commercial bias.
Grayson County Health Clinic 809 Gallagher Dr Ste D, Sherman, TX 75090, USA
I have personally been affected by insulin resistance so now follow a LCHF lifestyle to maintain my health. My patients, especially those with conditions that have insulin resistance like PCOS, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes and diabetes, have experienced great results with this type of approach. I believe a lifestyle grounded in real food (less sugar, more plants!), intermittent fasting, staying active and mindful living is the key to preventing many chronic diseases! I recommend the Diet Doctor website to get a more in-depth understanding of this lifestyle and for the practical guidance offered with recipes and meal planning.
Founder, Radiant Health Weight Loss and Wellness 8380 Warren Pkwy, Frisco, TX 75034, USA
I started actively recommending low carb diets and intermittent fasting in 2018 after I read Dr Fung’s books. These recommendations target the source of many of the illnesses we manage every day. I have seen amazing results. Now, I feel I am truly making a difference in my patient’s health and they feel better than ever. I direct every patient to Diet Doctor and they find it very helpful. Thank you for concentrating all this knowledge for the community.
Family Health Center of Bastrop 3101 TX-71, Bastrop, TX 78602, USA
After over a decade of practicing family medicine, I found that many patients were being treated for chronic medical problems versus working on preventing or improving health risks. Additionally, my concern grew as people who were struggling to maintain a healthy weight were also using medications that resulted in weight gain. Diet Doctor is an invaluable resource for my patients who are working to improve their lifestyle and positively change their overall health. Their personalized plan along with Diet Doctor proves that healthy can be delicious!
Reshaped Weight loss and Wellness 2008 E Hebron Pkwy, Carrollton, TX 75007, USA
As a Direct Primary Care Physician, I work very closely with people who not only want to lose weight, but also those who are motivated to reverse type 2 diabetes, regulate their hormone balance (PCOS & infertility) and reduce inflammation associated with autoimmune & other chronic diseases through diet and lifestyle changes. I often rely on the information from Diet Doctor to help guide my patients through their low carbohydrate and intermittent fasting journeys and greatly appreciate your support for physicians and the resources you provide to the public.
Diamond Physicians 4323 N Josey Ln, Carrollton, TX 75010, USA
I am a family physician working as the doctor and medical director of an employee health clinic in Utah. I now have a few dozen of my patients on LCHF. Their results have been great and it has just been a few months. After 25 years of practicing medicine this is so transformational and exciting! As an added note, since trying LCHF, I have been migraine-free, the first time in 7 years! A miracle! I share the Diet Doctor site daily with my patients
Prime Meridian Health Clinics 360 S 1300 W St, Pleasant Grove, UT 84062, USA
As a family physician in the most obese state in the USA, I see the devastation of type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease in almost every hospital patient I see. For six years I have been using education and a low-carb lifestyle to help these patients get healthier, reduce meds, gain energy, and lose belly fat. They learn that this is a sustainable life plan filled with joy and good food. Every day I share the amazing resource of Diet Doctor in my practice. Together as a global community we can put these conditions in remission and prevent them all together.
WVU Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health, West Virginia University School of Medicine 1 Medical Center Dr, Morgantown, WV 26505, USA
I've been offering patients a low-carb high-fat diet plan for more than 10 years, after reading everything I could on it. I now spend at least half my time using the LCHF diet to modify cardiovascular risks. Many patients come to me specifically for that reason (often driving very far.) They are motivated to improve their health and lower their CV risk through diet and lifestyle, rather than taking medications. Diabetes and metabolic syndrome are also a big part of my practice. It is exciting to see how patients improve with "just" diet and other lifestyle changes.
When the low-fat dietary advice I had been preaching for decades didn’t work for me in middle age, I changed to low-carb. After mentorship from Dr. Eric Westman, I introduced low-carb to my patients with astonishing results reversing diseases I had only been “managing”. In fact, more than 90% of patients who come to me on insulin are able to come off. I run a multidisciplinary medical weight loss clinic helping to restore health. This has brought the joy back into medicine for me. Diet Doctor has been an amazing resource to help me and my patients in this journey.
Virginia Commonwealth University 907 Floyd Ave, Richmond, VA 23284, USA
While I have always been passionate about helping my patients lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, my treatments became much more effective after I learned about the low-carb/ketogenic diet. I have now dedicated my career to help those with the disease of obesity get the medical treatment they deserve. While each person is given an individualized treatment plan, I regularly recommend a low-carb or ketogenic diet. Diet Doctor is an invaluable resource of reliable information on low-carb & ketogenic lifestyle both for my patients and myself. And it has wonderful recipes!
Premier Medical Weight Management 1750 112th Ave NE Suite e-168, Bellevue, WA 98004, USA
As a full-spectrum family physician since 2004, luckily I stumbled on the wonderful low-carb community two years ago after my amazing wife was forced to make dietary changes after surgery. I've never looked back! After transforming my own health, with help from resources like Diet Doctor, Jimmy Moore, and Dr. Jason Fung, I've committed to bettering the lives of my patients with intensive dietary management through LCHF and intermittent fasting. Empowering patients to make these lifestyle changes has truly brought back the joy of medicine for me. I am so thankful to all who have inspired me along the way.
Confluence Health Omak Clinic 916 Koala Dr, Omak, WA 98841, USA
For three years I've been teaching my patients about low-carb, high fat eating, which I consider to be the optimal human diet for most patients. We are reversing diabetes, obesity and other metabolic disorders with this diet. DietDoctor.com is a major resource of information for both my patients and me. I've personally been on a low-carb, keto diet since 2018.
Vintage Direct Primary Care 19319 7th Ave NE, Poulsbo, WA 98370, USA
I have recommended low-carbohydrate diets for my patients for the past 20 years of medical practice as it seems to be an excellent way to improve body composition and health. I have found that Diet Doctor has a wealth of helpful information. I particularly appreciate the beginners' guides and the recipes!
Virginia Mason Medical Center 100 NE Gilman Blvd, Issaquah, WA 98027, USA
I was first introduced to the low-carb diet in 2017 when I attended a seminar on pediatric nutrition at Seattle Children's Hospital. One of the updates was about the low- carb diet as treatment for children with metabolic syndrome and the studies shared were quite supportive with promising results. Being a skeptic, I tried it myself and have been astonished. My asthma, migraine, non-specific abdominal pains, GERD, and skin rashes all improved if not resolved completely. I fully support this diet and advocate for it to my patients and their families. For those who try it, I've seen unbelievable results.
Multicare Rockwood Clinic 605 E Holland Ave, Spokane, WA 99218, USA
Basic human physiology supports the use of a low-carb diet for the management of diabetes and related metabolic conditions, both in daily life and in my practice of hospital medicine, where glycemic control is vitally important. I use Diet Doctor as a resource to stay up-to-date with other low-carb professionals, and I confidently refer my patients to this trusted resource for its wealth of information relevant to their metabolic health
As a weight loss specialist I address all the facets of the journey, but by far the biggest component is nutrition. Going low carb is probably the single greatest thing patients can do to regain their health and vitality. After 16 years of Family Practice I switched to medical bariatrics, and through helping patients adapt to a low carb lifestyle I’ve been practicing the best medicine of my life. It’s a pleasure to see them reducing their list of medications and saying goodbye to joint pain.
Kitsap Medical Weight Loss 20730 Bond Rd NE, Poulsbo, WA 98370, USA
Our medical weight loss practice, as well as primary care practice presents a myriad of opportunities to recommend ketogenic eating to our patients. DietDoctor is the first resource we go to with patients, in the exam room, to show them what a plentiful range of eating options there are within this healthful eating strategy. Our patients go back to it over and over for more information and support. Thanks Diet Doctor from my patients!
ReforMedicine 3004 Golf Rd, Eau Claire, WI 54701, USA
As a physician, I see daily the tremendous impact that our pandemic of chronic nutritional disease is having on people and the health care system, despite our best conventional efforts over the last 40 years. I now focus my time and energy on counseling, supporting and guiding patients on the power of real food as medicine. Using the core principles of low-carb, high-fat eating and intermittent fasting, we see great improvements in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, NAFLD and many more chronic diseases. Diet Doctor is a great resource for my patients to help them in their journey.
Stettler Medical Clinic 4710 50 St, Stettler, AB T0C 2L2, Canada
As an interventional cardiologist for 30 years —and an avid runner and active person — I realized as I aged that eating less and moving more did not work for me or for my patients. The ketogenic diet resulted in a 30-pound weight loss and a dramatic increase in energy. As a past president of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society, I have been urged by medical colleagues to share my ketogenic knowledge widely. With my wife, a certified health coach, I have established a cardiometabolic clinic for obesity and insulin resistance syndromes. One of the resources we recommend is Diet Doctor.
University of Alberta E 116th St, New York, NY, USA
I’ve personally been using nutritional ketosis with great success over the last 3 years. I have no doubt that this lifestyle change has a huge impact for any who choose to follow it and I’m here to help if you have questions or need some support.
Bonnyville Medical Clinic 4610 50 St, Bonnyville, AB T9N 1M3, Canada
As a family physician who holds registration in both the UK and Canada (and is bilingual in English & French), I have been using the low-carb diet for more than 20 years with great results for my patients. I have been trained by Dr. Dale Bredesen in reversing Alzheimer’s disease using ketogenic diets as part of the intervention. I refer my patients on almost a daily basis to the Diet Doctor site because it is such a great resource.
Bow River Medical Clinic 202-1205 Bow Valley Trail, Canmore, AB T1W 1P5, Canada
I have been amazed at the results my patients have been able to achieve with their weight and metabolic health solely by changing what they eat and following a lower-carb diet. Diet Doctor is the resource I always recommend for good quality, evidence-based information about all things low carb.
Weight Solutions for Physicians 1668 Tamarack St, Prince George, BC V2L 2T3, Canada
I have found a low-carb approach and/or intermittent fasting to be some of the most potent tools for treating metabolic syndrome including diabetes, NAFLD, PCOS, and dyslipidemia among others. It is amazing to work with people and help individuals take control of their health.
Direnfeld Family Medicine 1265 Morningside Ave, Scarborough, ON M1B 3V9, Canada
I believe that therapeutic nutrition is one of the most valuable preventive health measures we can offer patients. As an Obesity Physician, I recommend a low carbohydrate diet and intermittent fasting for weight management, improving glycemic control and managing insulin resistance.
High Metabolic Clinic 507 Lakeshore Rd E, Mississauga, ON L5G 1H9, Canada
As a family and obesity medicine physician, I recommend a way of eating that includes a personalized reduction in carbohydrates — from a lower carbohydrate to ketogenic diet strategy. Not only is this informed by current evidence, but also by my clinical observation of seeing many patients experience health and freedom from dieting for the first time in their adult lives.
Tannery Medical 121 Charles St W, Kitchener, ON N2G 1H7, Canada
I recommend the low-carb diet and other lifestyle changes to reverse obesity, diabetes, hypertension and PCOS at our health wellness centre. The prevalence of food and lifestyle-related diseases in a developing country like Tanzania is increasing at an alarming rate. Evidence-based scientific approaches combined with low-carb have been my basic tools to reverse diabetes, hypertension, obesity and many other metabolic diseases.
I recommend a LCHF diet to my patients wanting to lose weight, or with various chronic diseases, firstly because of the science behind this, but more importantly because of the results. I also provide dietary advice and support for patients interested in intermittent fasting as well.
Townsville & Suburban Medical Practice Townsville QLD 4810, Australia
As a family physician, I have been recommending a low carbohydrate diet to all my patients. Truthfully, I cannot recommend any other diet with a clear conscience. I discovered the scientific benefits of a low-carb diet from Diet Doctor in 2011 when I was looking for new and better ways to manage my patients with diabetes, and I have never looked back since. My patients have benefited immensely from this diet, and it’s the best way to manage obesity, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and diabetes. To me, Diet Doctor is the one-stop website for everything low-carb.
Park Medical Group 779 Albany Highway, East Victoria Park Western Australia 6101, Australia
My passion is to help people regain their health, naturally and sustainably, using compassion, expert knowledge and the best science to guide people to their own recovery. I live low-carb and am highly experienced in prescribing low-carb and ketogenic lifestyles for the weight less and management and reversal of chronic disease.
Karuna Maya Medicine 22 Princes Terrace, Jan Juc VIC 3228, Australia
I survived my mother's zero fat regime back in the 1980's and have followed the low carbohydrate movement since the 1990's. I am now happily incorporating the low carb lifestyle into my daily general practice and love how relevant it is to every aspect of well being. I refer many patients to the Diet Doctor website each day.
I have studied the effects of diet in health since an early age. I recall reading John Yudkins’s book Pure, White and Deadly when I was about 13 years old in the early 1970’s. From that time I was convinced of the role of diet in health. My passion and strength in medicine is helping people change their life and health around by making positive changes to their diets.
Apple Tree Medical 2 Cumberland Ave, Smithfield QLD 4878, Australia
I enjoy working with patients to achieve optimal wellness. I have found that a low-carb diet is ideal for weight loss for most patients, especially because ketosis reduces appetite. The Diet Doctor website has terrific resources and I recommended it to many patients. The intermittent fasting information is particularly helpful and inspirational with so many experts sharing their tips. I think that a combination of low-carb diet and IF are powerful tools to help one combat chronic disease, gain energy and achieve wellness.
Ellen Health 191 Hampton Rd, South Fremantle WA 6162, Australia
There has never been a moment of turning back on this LCHF journey for us. Once you see the results you can never unsee them! Being targeted and then defending the science of LCHF for myself, my patients and the wider community has been a defining time for Belinda and myself. Our reach has been extended from the support of many and we are eternally grateful. As a surgeon, I have come to realize that the pen (social media) is truly mightier than the sword (scalpel) in spreading this information. May the message continue to help others.
Using low carbohydrate diets in general practice has been revolutionary for me as a doctor and for my patients. It is incredible to see diabetes reversed and insulin stopped within days. I have had to learn how to stop medications. Dr David Unwin has been an inspiration for me as well as Dr Eric Westman and Dr Sarah Hallberg. I always use Diet Doctor's visual guides to teach patients. This website is an incredible resource for both doctors and patients alike. It is all you need to succeed
Low Carb PMQ 3 Highfields Cct, Port Macquarie NSW 2444, Australia
As a family doctor, I believe in the power of food as medicine. Often our current healthcare system doesn’t feel like healthcare at all, but disease management that focuses on band-aid solutions rather than true healing from within. I encourage my patients to eat whole foods, high in healthy fats, with minimal processing. This low-carb, real-food approach empowers patients to take control of their health and has been shown to improve lifestyle-related chronic conditions and reverse type 2 diabetes. Diet Doctor is an impressive resource for patients and health practitioners on all things low-carb.
I believe that low-carbohydrate eating is key to optimising health and well-being. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to nutrition, however, reduction in sugar intake is increasingly being accepted as a cornerstone in maintaining physical, mental, and emotional wellness. I am a proponent of strict ketogenic (and varying degrees of low-carbohydrate) diets. Time restricted eating also has an important role in weight management and improving metabolism. The number of success stories of lives changed is growing. Being an advocate for and being a part of this change is very exciting!
Valewood Clinic 1 Wanda St, Mulgrave VIC 3170, Australia
I have been living and talking about the low-carb lifestyle for over 5 years. It has given me the tools to help so many people to improve their quality of life across all areas, mentally, physically and emotionally.
Inkerman Medical Group 290 Inkerman St, St Kilda East VIC 3183, Australia
I discovered the low-carb, ketogenic diet some four years ago and saw huge improvements in my own health. After establishing that it is based on sound scientific principles I felt compelled to offer it to my patients. We recommend the Diet Doctor website as it offers an unbiased, contemporary source of reliable low-carb ketogenic advice. It is easy to use and you can rely on its integrity.
As a rheumatologist, pain physician, and specialist in lifestyle medicine, my expertise includes the diagnosis and management of the various rheumatological disorders that impact patients' joints, bones, tendons and muscles, especially the various types of arthritis. I am dedicated to providing whole-person care using the full spectrum of mainstream, integrative and healthcare treatments. Nutrition is a central aspect of care. For many, the physiological benefits of a low-carbohydrate diet and nutritional ketosis are essential. The Diet Doctor site has provided wonderful resources for my patients for many years.
Strive Health and Physio 703 Ross River Rd, Kirwan QLD 4817, Australia
I recommend low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets to almost all my patients, from the general public to world-class Olympic athletes. A huge variety of benefits can be seen, from improvements in metabolic health and reductions in joint pains to enhanced athletic performance. While a degree of nuance is needed for specific recommendations, based on factors like general health and goals, the general principle is to reduce carbohydrates while ensuring appropriate intake of fat and protein. This addresses the key problem of insulin resistance, which is central to many modern disease states, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes
Concord & Randwick Clinics New South Wales, Australia
I am a gynaecologist and IVF doctor and am developing a nutrition practice. I am an advocate for LCHF and its various protocols such as time-restricted eating, keto and fasting. I have found this way of eating not only improves my patients' overall health, but improves their fertility and reproductive health, especially for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). I was a featured speaker at the 2018 Low-Carb Down Under conference where I spoke on “PCOS and Insulin Resistance – A Lifetime of Opportunities”. Diet Doctor is the ultimate site for current good nutrition advice.
I'm a UK-trained GP living in Perth. I tried every diet under the sun before I finally found Diet Doctor and the keto, low-carb, high-fat lifestyle. Having researched the science behind it, I gave it a go and lost over 20kg in less than a year. I loved eating truly tasty and filling meals, without the additives, fads and calorie counting! I am now a total believer and strong advocate for the LCHF lifestyle. If you want to know more about keto, I would love to help you on your weight-loss journey!
Sunlander Medical Centre 10 Sunlander Dr, Currambine WA 6028, Australia
I have been following a ketogenic diet for over 3 years to help manage my type 1 diabetes.

I also always recommend the Diet Doctor website to patients as a fantastic source of information, recipes and testimonials.
Wellness on Wellington 1/1101 Wellington Road Rowville VIC 3178
I prescribe and monitor low-carbohydrate diets because they are evidence-based and actionable. Diet Doctor provides great resources for my patients, most of whom present with joint and tendon problems, related to excess mechanical load (overweight) and inflammation. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to change their lifestyle at a time when deterioration in health is early and minimal. As one of my patients with diabetes remarked, “At least the turning point is happening because of my sore knee and not a stroke or a heart attack.” I couldn’t have summed up the rewarding nature of this work any better.
I use low-carb and keto diets as well as intermittent fasting as treatments for chronic diseases in my clinical practice. This includes as a sustainable means to reverse obesity, and for type 2 diabetes remission. I work with a low-carb dietitian who provides resources and motivation for long term success. I also recommend the Diet Doctor website as a great source of information.
I am a general practitioner with a special interest in preventative and lifestyle medicine. My training in nutrition began over a decade ago and has included professional training in ketogenic and low carbohydrate diets through The Noakes Foundation and also training in functional medicine. I am passionate about individualizing medicine with a strong focus on lifestyle interventions such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress management to ensure my patients and their families achieve and maintain optimal health and wellness
For the 70% of overweight and obese Australians, nothing could be more important than the profoundly positive effects associated with low-carb diets and intermittent fasting. Within days, their fat starts to burn off and patients all say the same thing: 'I have more energy, feel better and I’m happier.' Diet Doctor is life changing.
Ellen Health Unit 1/91 Hampton Rd, Fremantle WA 6160, Australia
Efficient weight and lifestyle management is the key for a healthy life. It's not only about aesthetics. Normal weight means low risk for diseases like diabetes mellitus or myocardial infarction. An active lifestyle affects epigenetics, makes us stronger, shows how to live longer and healthier. Ketogenic nutrition is one of the most efficient and easiest ways to lose weight. Keto matters.
I have been working as an internal medicine doctor and diabetologist for over 20 years, focusing on gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and also teaching future doctors and nutritionists. In 2016, we corrected our official dietary guidelines for GDM, removing the minimum recommended intake of carbohydrates and setting a maximum at 200 grams a day, with low-carbohydrate diets as an option. I would like to thank GDM dietitian Lily Nichols, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt at Diet Doctor and the entire LCHF community for improving outcomes of Czech women with GDM and other patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
Struggling with mental illness is hard for both patient and those around him or her. Stabilizing the body helps healing mental statement. KETO-diet stabilize the body for many if not all. I use KETO-diet as part of the treatment if the patient agrees, and my experience is, that for those who engage with KETO-diet, it works. I recommend Dietdoctor because it's simple, easy to use, and my patient choose it for that reason.
Diabetes-Schwerpunktpraxis Kleiner Biergrund 31, 63065 Offenbach am Main, Germany
An interdisciplinary approach to overweight with advanced diagnostics, dietitians, physiotherapists and personal trainers as well as medication are our strength. In diet counseling, we have the best results with low carb and keto diets.
As a doctor of orthopedics and sports medicine, I use the analysis and optimization of nutrition as one of the indispensable ingredients in my science-based diagnostic and therapeutic concepts for patients of all ages, whether athletes or normal people!
As a pain therapist and F.X. Mayr-therapist I recommend low-carb and ketogenic diets with or without fasting for patients with chronic pain diseases or for patients wanting to lose weight. I have seen a lot of impressive clinical results. I also provide delicious recipes. I personally follow a low carb lifestyle
As a family doctor in India, I recommend low-carb and keto diets, with and without intermittent fasting, to all of my patients who have lifestyle-related chronic conditions. I follow the growing, evidence-based science behind these approaches and I have seen the impressive clinical results. I, too, follow a low carb lifestyle and usually do it with intermittent fasting. I have been able to reverse my diabesity and keep my post-menopausal symptoms at bay. I also recommend to my patients that they visit the Diet Doctor website to find trustworthy information and delicious recipes
I am an anesthesiologist who managed to lose weight and reverse my pre-diabetes a few years back. I now advocate the low-carb diet and lifestyle to all patients, colleagues and friends. Diet Doctor is a comprehensive one-stop resource which I highly recommend. Almost every patient I anesthetize has metabolic issues, and the situation is difficult as the diet in India is primarily carbohydrate based. I have successfully helped friends and patients reverse their type 2 diabetes
Apollo Gleneagles Hospital. 58, Canal Circular Road, KOLKATA 700054 India
I am appalled that I spent over three decades as a Gynecologist, prescribing pharmaceuticals!! Changing to a low carb lifestyle has been transformative for myself, my family and for my patients. Patients with diverse complaints such as diabetes, PCOD, hypertension, chronic acidity, low energy have found benefit. This benefit has been quick, safe and sustainable with some patients able to get off all medication including insulin and oral anti-diabetics, within weeks. Diet Doctor is one the go-to resources I direct patients to, with confidence.
Axis Hospital SAB TV Rd, Shastri Nagar, Andheri West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400053, India
LCHF is not a diet but a lifestyle in itself to stay healthy. My journey with LCHF has been both professional and personal, have been off medications of any sorts since over a year into it. I would personally recommend LCHF lifestyle to optimize your health. I am willing to help anyone willing to try it.
Kinesis Sports Clinic 4th Cross Rd, Dollar Layout, Stage 2, BTM 2nd Stage, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560076, India
As an American board-certified endocrinologist who moved back to Mumbai, I saw India’s diabetes epidemic and dogma through a different lens. Low-carb plus intermittent fasting has proven very effective in the reversal of insulin resistance, fatty liver, PCOS, reduced fertility, obesity, metabolic syndrome, hypertension and even early diabetic neuropathy and nephropathy. I conduct Diabetes Self-Management classes every month while looking at the whole lifestyle: stress, sleep, exercise, mindfulness, self-care and nutrition. This works even in India’s predominantly vegetarian culture! I often refer patients to DietDoctor for low-carb recipes and FAQ’s.
Aasaan Health Solutions Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
I am a diabetologist running the Bangalore Diabetes Center for 22 years. Our practice changed to low carb in 2015 and has changed the life of many patients. Our only regret is not going low-carb earlier. We have both online and offline programs for diabetes reversal, weight loss ,PCOS, autoimmune and neuropsychiatric conditions. We are happy to keep many of our patients out of insulin and medications for diabetes. We also conducted India's first low-carb conference for doctors and dietitians. Diet Doctor is a terrific resource for patients looking for information and recipes.
Bangalore Diabetes Centre 2ND, 426, 4th Cross Rd, HRBR Layout 2nd Block, HRBR Layout, Kalyan Nagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560043, India
I started an intensive study of a nutrition and lifestyle approach to medicine in 1999. Initially I favoured The Zone (I have written 2 books on this subject), but some 10 years ago my study and experience led me to a low carb/keto approach. To date I have treated several thousand patients who have come to me thanks to the books I have written and/or translated, through my website or through being recommended to me by fellow MDs.
Many patients with irregular menstruation, obesity, breast and thyroid disease come to my clinic where the root cause of their suffering stems from poor diet. With the low- carb, high fat diet and only eating whole non-processed foods, I've seen my own life and the lives of my patients changed. Thank you to Diet Doctor for all it does to support the low-carb community.
The eye is a complex organ, made up of interconnected nerves and blood vessels. Because of this, it is vulnerable to all kinds of effects of our metabolism. The low-carb diet can prevent and treat over 70% of the eye diseases that bring patients to doctors. Dry eye, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy and so on are all diseases that can be treated. For that reason, although I am an ophthalmologist, I regularly provide low-carb dietary guidelines for Korean individuals that align with the Diet Doctor guidelines.
When I treat cancer patients in my clinic, I need a diet program for them. After researching it, I found the ketogenic diet is the best way to reduce inflammation and suppress the cancer's growth so I have applied the diet to my patients. It's the most effective diet not only for cancer patients, but also for diabetes and obesity treatments. I recommended Diet Doctor website to my patients because it is easy to understand the theory and application of the ketogenic diet.
With information overload in the internet nowadays, Diet Doctor becomes the reliable 'Go-To' website which I can depend on as a medical doctor to help my diabetic patients reverse their condition. In the process of reversing their diabetes, my patient's blood pressure & weight improves tremendously. Thank you Diet Doctor & Keto rocks!
Sweetlife Wellness Centre Block B, Level 6, Unit 615, Kelana Square, 17, SS7/26, Ss 3, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
My patient's have tremendously benefited from adopting a low carb lifestyle. Each person is unique and the diet can be adjusted to their wants and needs. From reversing diabetes and treating obesity, this is truly the way forward in treating patients holistically.
Metabolic Healthcare 20, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 2, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
As an ophthalmologist, I use a low-carb, high-fat diet approach with intermittent fasting to treat and prevent vision loss associated with diabetic retinopathy in my patients. In addition to my ophthalmology practice, I also treat patients with obesity and metabolic diseases with positive results. I recommend the Diet Doctor website to all my patients so that they get a deep understanding of the low-carb, high-fat approach. It has all the valuable resources they need for a successful ketogenic lifestyle.
As a physician and acupuncturist I have a great interest in longevity and benefiting health. Many patients ask me what they can do themselves to improve their condition.After studying a lot of literature on healthy aging and experimenting on myself (losing 10 kg in 1 1/2 month), I recommend the low-carb diet to my patients at risk. I also recommend the Diet Doctor website for further information.
I've followed Diet Doctor for quite some years now. I have read how Andreas left the practice to spread the low-carb life style in a different way. In my work as a family physician I try to motivate people to follow the low-carb lifestyle. For myself I enjoy the majority of recipes for all kind of meals and I love the visual way of presentation. I have seen very good results from leaving the ultra processed off your plate. People are welcome to make an appointment for more information.
Centrum de Peel Dorpsstraat 8B, 5768 CE Meijel, Netherlands
I am a practicing low-carb sports and exercise physician in The Netherlands and a member of Diet Doctor for many years. I’ve been living a low-carb lifestyle myself since January 2015, most of the time ketogenic. I do sports medicine at two hospital locations, with a strong lifestyle focus. Together with the GP’s in my home village Leende I started the project GezondDorp (“VitalVillage”) in 2016. The program, which has gained national attention, focuses on low-carb nutrition, healthy movement, relaxation and socializing, good sleep.
St. Anna Ziekenhuis /TopSupport 5644 RX Eindhoven, Netherlands
Combining intermittent and extended fasting with a LCHF diet can be the best of both worlds, simultaneously reducing inflammation while maintaining metabolic rate. The significant benefits are being rediscovered by modern medicine.
I have been recommending low carb-healthy fat/ keto diets to my patients and seeing very promising results. Patients are successfully losing weight, many have stopped their insulin and more are reducing their medications. Rates of A1C levels below recommended targets have sky-rocketed in my clinic.
AVISENA Specialist Hospital Jalan Ikhtisas, Seksyen 14, 40000 Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia
After almost a decade helping people to control their weight I've seen how the keto diet improves the health of my patients, specifically those with diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea and chronic pain in the lower extremities. With the keto diet I've been able to reduce the dependence on medications or even stop prescribing medications at all. As a doctor, nothing is more rewarding than seeing my patients with more energy, an active lifestyle and definitely a better quality of life. In my opinion the ketogenic diet is the most cost-effective way to lose weight and regain the health you longed for.
As a physician who specializes in the treatment of spinal cord injury -- and who also sustained my own spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury from an automobile accident -- I have a passion for using nutrition, especially a ketogenic diet, in those with neurological injuries, neurological diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, and pain. I was recently co-investigator on a pilot, randomized, safety and feasibility study evaluating the ketogenic diet for improvement of neurological recovery in individuals with acute spinal cord injury. This is a burgeoning yet very promising area for improved patient health.
Glancy Rehabilitation Center 3215 McClure Bridge Rd, Duluth, GA 30096, USA
As an interventional pain physician, most of my patients have severe metabolic dysfunction. Metainflammation and the cascade of chronic disease states that emanate from it must be treated simultaneously, as the patient's chronic pain issues. Failing to address the metainflammation results in symptom recurrence. Simply telling a patient to change their lifestyle has no real long-term likelihood of success, most often they have already tried multiple times prior to being seen in our clinics. We use a comprehensive, individually tailored approach that is keto oriented.
Padda Institute 5203 Chippewa St #301, St. Louis, MO 63109, USA
As a plastic surgeon I see a lot of patients who want to improve their bodies, but so frequently their issue relates to weight and health. Patients want to do the best for themselves, but misinformation is widespread. Basic good medicine is about helping patients to make the right choices and I have been counselling patients and referring them to Diet Doctor for several years now with great successes. As a physician I have healed myself and I want to do the same for my patients. Adding lifestyle counselling to my practice has given me new energy and allowed me simply to be a better doctor.
Tranquillity Clinic 86 New Church St, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
As a Sports Medicine Physician my epiphany in 2012 as to the benefits of a LCHFD has inspired me to spreading the message to my patients, to my medical colleagues and to the public through my writings and lecture forums. I have been able to re-engage my medical practice towards the resolution of people’s metabolic diseases using effective low carb nutrition and the improvement of physical performance in athletes at many levels with ketogenic dietary programs. What a privilege it is to be among those medical practitioners ‘enlightened’ with this knowledge and at the forefront of the change in medical practice towards a ‘lifestyle focused’ rather than ‘pharmocentric’ approach to the betterment of people’s (and ultimately population) health & wellness.
I reversed my prediabetes by following a low carb diet along with intermittent fasting. I now routinely recommend this approach to my patients to help with weight loss and improve blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure. I believe that this way of eating is more powerful in improving patients' health than any medication.
Lifelong Weight Loss 3100 Weslayan St #253, Houston, TX 77027, USA
For years I followed the (erroneous) advice I learned in medical school, and which I constantly gave to my patients: Exercise more, eat less; never skip breakfast, eat six small meals a day ... But that advice didn't work for me just as it had never worked for my patients. In February 2017, at my highest weight ever, I discovered the growing evidence-based science for ketogenic eating and intermittent fasting -- and soon lost 50lbs. Now I support patients in adopting this simple, powerful dietary lifestyle to achieve much better health and greatly-improved quality of life.
Hospital Nossa Senhora Conceição Av. Cristóvão Colombo, 3024 - Floresta, Porto Alegre - RS, 90560-005, Brazil
In my psychiatric practice, the high rate of obesity and metabolic disorders among my patients prompted me to develop an integrative therapeutic response, especially to address frequent patterns of impulsivity/compulsivity, low energy/lethargy, mood instability, mental fog, poor concentration and cognitive deterioration. A real-food, low-carb, healthy-fat, often ketogenic lifestyle, combined with intermittent fasting, stress management, rest, and movement — and appropriate pharmacotherapy as needed — results in improved general health, cognitive function, mood management, and quality of life. Diet Doctor, especially the new Spanish site, is a great tool for my patients.
S2000, Italia 424, S2000DEJ Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina
As a critical care physician, I always wanted ways to prevent critical illness. For me it was clear that the nutritional domain was fundamental. Serendipitously, while looking for better comprehension about metabolic aspects of diseases by studying classic papers on clinical nutrition, I was introduced to a whole new world of low-carb approaches. Everything made sense. Nowadays, I prescribe low-carb/keto strategies in hospital practice (epilepsy control, chronic lung disease, mitochondriopathies) as well as in outpatient settings for the control of insulin resistance. I also follow the diet in my private life, for me and my family.
Having struggled with weight throughout my life, worsened by stress of medical school & residency, the birth of our first child and lab work showing prediabetes was my wake-up call. The usual “eat less & move more” advice never provided meaningful results. After more study, a low-carb & keto diet & intermittent fasting allowed me to regain my health. This rejuvenated my desire to help patients improve their weight, cardiovascular status, control diabetes, & even put it into remission! I use Diet Doctor on a daily basis for my patients as a resource for accurate information, recipes, and more.
ThedaCare 600 N Westhaven Dr, Oshkosh, WI 54904, USA
About 25% of my patients are diabetic and many others get chronic foot injuries due to working out for weight loss. I needed a way to help my patients as the current method of eating less and working out more was impractical. Low carb and ketogenic diets have helped my patients but adding intermittent fasting has potentiated the improvement and seen my patients reduce medications and improve overall health. The resources of Diet Doctor help jump start the learning process for my patients.
Central Massachusetts Podiatry, PC 299 Lincoln St #202, Worcester, MA 01605, USA
I discovered the ketogenic diet in 2017 and since then I have come to truly believe it is the metabolic and nutritional pathway to overall health. Hippocrates once stated, 'All disease begins in the gut" and I now truly believe the right food can cure. I am now discouraging patients from undergoing bariatric surgery too soon and advising them to try the keto diet first. Diet Doctor gives people the knowledge they need. It is a place where everyone can go to learn and have fun with this nutritional approach
R. Sete de Setembro, 74 - Centro, Joinville - SC, 89201-200, Brazil
I live in a country where chronic non-communicable diseases have been exponentially increased, like obesity, hyperinsulinism, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, neurologic degenerative diseases, autoimmune diseases, cancer, psychiatric disorders, etc. My experience as a clinical doctor implementing a low-carb high-fat diet as a part of the lifestyle program has become a success in the reversion of diseases and the improvement of quality of life for patients. All this approach comes with a lot of fulfillment in my professional career, and it is a contribution to change in healthcare.
Instituto Médico Integral Calevit Avda Av. las Condes 9460, OF 1004, Las Condes, Región Metropolitana, Chile
I'm an MD from Brazil with clinics in Porto Alegre and São Paulo and I've been using the low-carb to treat patients since 2011, basically introducing low-carb in Brazil. I am also the president of the Brazilian low-carb association. I am proud to be a member of this list.
Clinica Waisman Av. Conselheiro Aguiar, 1472 - Boa Viagem, Recife - PE, 51011-050, Brazil
In my practice I manage the obesity epidemic of our young patients using a low-carb approach. I also give lectures around the country explaining the science of low-carb and the carbohydrate-insulin theory of obesity. In my talks, blog, and articles I often recommend visiting the Diet Doctor website to find information about the ketogenic diet and many original recipes. I've subscribed to the Diet Doctor website for a long time and often watch the interviews and lectures published on the website. I want to thank Andreas for all of his work.
Children Obesity Clinic, Pediatric Hepato-Gastroenterology and Nutrition Clinic Av. Martínez de Velasco, 36, 22004 Huesca, Spain
I discuss nutrition with all my patients as I believe lifestyle choices have an important impact on both physical and mental health. I recommend a simple whole-foods, low-carbohydrate diet, intermittent fasting or both, to many of my patients. I use the Diet Doctor website myself as I enjoy the ad-free, simple, but very comprehensive approach to low-carb eating and I recommend it to my patients as well as to my colleagues, friends and family.
Avenue du Grand-Champsec 80, 1950 Sion, Switzerland
I care for ventilator-dependent patients, so I have no outpatients. However, I do give low-carb advice to my colleagues, their family members, friends, and neighbors. Inspired by Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, I have started a Chinese low-carb website to help the Mandarin-speaking population with the diet. Many people are able to stop taking medications after following my advice. I also recommend they visit the Diet Doctor website to find trustworthy information and delicious recipes
I encourage my patients to do fasting coupled with a very-low-carbohydrate, whole-foods diet because of the astounding biochemical and clinical improvements these interventions provide, in terms of managing chronic metabolic illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. I invite my patients to go to Diet Doctor because it is a very reliable source of information for people following a low-carbohydrate diet
I work both in the private health sector coaching clients and in the UK NHS as a family docor. I first heard about the low-carb keto diet when I read the book ‘Natural born heroes' (sequel to 'Born to Run') by Christopher McDougall. I was looking for a scientifically-based and sustainable way to eat; one that would ensure I remained as fit and healthy for as long as possible and something that would enable my patients to do the same. I have seen many dramatic improvements in all areas of my patients' health with this approach to diet and lifestyle. I regularly recommend Diet Doctor.
Body Mapping Clinic 2 Swan St, Bawtry, Doncaster DN10 6JQ, UK
I’m a proud UK NHS low-carb GP who has been eating a no sugar/low carb diet since 2015. I recommend and support my patients on a low carb diet, some of whom have achieved incredible results for weight loss and diabetes remission. (However, I can only register and care for patients in my catchment area.) I refer patients to Diet Doctor regularly. I am also an amateur competitive triathlete and I coach at Bassetlaw Triathlon Club. I encourage and support any of our athletes wanting to train and race on a low carb diet.
Tuxford Medical Centre Faraday Ave, Tuxford, Newark NG22 0HT, UK
I am a medical practitioner who has type 1 diabetes. Since adopting a very low-carb lifestyle I have found that day-to-day diabetes management has become so much easier with the added bonus of normal HbA1c. As a result of smaller insulin doses, I am not tied down to strict meal times and can eat when I choose. Similarly, glucose control with exercise is far more predictable. Very low-carb for me gives as near to a ‘normal’ life as someone with diabetes can get.
I have been a UK family doctor since 1990, and discovered the low-carb and keto ways of life in 2014. Until then, I had never seen a way of eating that resulted in normal weight and improvements in other health problems like diabetes, epilepsy, arthritis, and asthma. When I discovered Diet Doctor I was very impressed, and loved the recipes. I now run low-carb courses for the public and health care professionals.
Arpley House 103 Birchwood Blvd, Birchwood, Warrington WA3, UK
From both personal experience and the testimony of hundreds of my patients, the effects on both physical and mental health of a low carbohydrate diet are second to none. The key to happy and healthy longevity is not only about physical activity but about reversing the public health crisis that is metabolic dysfunction. The Diet Doctor app and website offers the practical solution to this and I recommend all my patients to it as the definitive model of low carbohydrate lifestyle.
Pennygate Medical Centre 109 Ladies Ln, Hindley, Wigan WN2 2QG, UK
I am a family physician and co-author of the book The Diabetes Diet. I have been advocating a low-carb diet for patients for the last 16 years — for weight loss weight, cardiac risk reduction, and better blood sugar control in type 1 and 2 diabetes. The diet enables patients with type 1 diabetes to reduce their insulin needs, while patients with type 2 diabetes on insulin may be able to eliminate the drug completely. I leave the choice as to whether the diet needs to be ketogenic or not up to patients, depending on their motivation and goals.
As a general practitioner with a specific interest in metabolic health, I use low-carb and ketogenic diets as an important option for my patients. Achieving goals such as type 2 diabetes remission and sustained weight loss should be an enjoyable journey. Getting the approach right matters. Good health is about having a better day today and tomorrow. I take a whole-person approach in healthcare, and for wellbeing. I utilise the Human5 model for optimised health, wellbeing and performance. The aim is continuous and enjoyable life improvement, for individuals and populations.
I have been offering a low-carb approach as an option to my patients with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes for a number of years now. Coupled with focusing on individual goals it has made an enormous difference for many of my patients.
Norwood Surgery 11 Norwood Ave, Southport PR9 7EG, UK
At the Norwood Surgery in the North of England we have been offering a low-carb option for our patients with type 2 diabetes since 2013. We feel this makes perfect sense in a condition which could be seen as one where sugar is acting as a ‘metabolic poison’, remembering that starchy carbs like bread rice or breakfast cereals digest down into surprising amounts of sugar, as predicted for us by the glycemic index.
I retired from my cardiology practice eight years ago and started a very-low-carbohydrate program (Diet of Hope). With the help of six nurse practitioners we have seen over 18,000 patients, including over 150 physicians. All insurance programs have accepted us. Our drug-free program is very successful, especially with diabetes, obesity, chronic kidney disease, fatty liver and others. We have published our results.
Diet of Hope Institute 50 E Croydon Park Rd, Tucson, AZ 85704, USA
The totality of evidence is very clear: A low-carbohydrate dietary approach is the most effective way to manage the insulin resistance syndrome which is that single biggest driver of obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Diet Doctor has been instrumental in providing extremely useful, clear and educational material to all who want to implement this dietary approach in to their lives. That’s why I recommend the website to all my at-risk patients.
I recommend the low-carb diet both before and after surgery to any patient undergoing cardio-vascular surgery, whether they are undergoing cardiac bypass for stenosed arteries, heart valve replacement or vascular procedures on peripheral vessels. Decreasing the inflammatory reaction before a huge stress such as a surgical procedure may help improve the outcome. Losing weight in overweight patients is also related to a better outcome. Since low-carb is more a lifestyle than just a diet, people will keep on it over the long run and therefore improve both their cardiovascular health and their general health.
I work in a busy inner city crisis team, treating a wide variety of mental disorders. For ten years I have practised LCHF nutrition, and in more recent years have followed a ketogenic lifestyle with intermittent fasting. I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of lifestyle management - activity, sleep, stress management and nutrition, for managing chronic inflammation and associated conditions. I am more than happy to recommend the Diet Doctor resources as a reliable source of high quality information for those interested in taking charge of their health.
Royal Edinburgh Hospital Morningside Pl, Edinburgh EH10, UK
Mi experiencia personal ha sido excelente; mi energía ha aumentado y el porcentaje de grasa corporal ha disminuido. Mis pacientes están muy contentos, ya que han perdido peso de forma rápida y se sienten muy bien. Además, pueden hacer ejercicio sin problemas al tener más energía. Están felices de ver que sus expectativas se han cumplido en un tiempo corto y prudencial.
My personal experience has been excellent; my energy has increased and the percentage of body fat has decreased. My patients are very happy because they have lost weight quickly and they feel wonderful. Since they have more energy they can also exercise without problems. They are happy to see that their expectations have been met in a short and prudential time.
Durante 17 años de ejercicio de la medicina se puede ir perdiendo la fe. Por ejemplo, llegué a creer que mis pacientes obesos simplemente “no seguían las recomendaciones”. Pero, cuando la diabetes y el sobrepeso tocaron a mi puerta, entendí que el sistema tradicional no funciona. Por fortuna conocí la dieta baja en carbohidratos. Descubrir que la comida puede ser la mejor medicina para muchas enfermedades supuestamente crónicas y progresivas como hipertensión, diabetes e hígado graso, me devolvió la esperanza. Por eso, ahora me dedico a ayudar a mis pacientes a aprender a comer saludable y sabroso.
After having practised medicine for 17 years one can lose faith. For example, I believed that my obese patients simply “were not following recommendations”. But when diabetes and overweight knocked at my door I understood that the traditional system does not work. Luckily I found the low carb diet. Discovering that food can be the best medicine for many diseases that in theory are chronic and progressive, such as hypertension, diabetes and fatty liver gave me my hope back. For that reason I am now dedicated to teaching my patients how to eat healthy and tasty
Solo con alimentación low carb mis pacientes han mejorado enormemente de sus trastornos digestivos, enfermedades de la piel, incluso la infecciosas, HTA, etc. Obtienen resultados maravillosos. Yo también uso la dieta low carb con mi esposo con un éxito extraordinario, nos sentimos muy bien.
Just by following a low carb diet my patients have been able to improve their digestive problems, skin diseases (even the infectious ones), hypertension, etc. I also eat low carb with my husband and we are seeing tremendous success. We feel great!
Como médico, observo las consecuencias que tiene una mala nutrición en las enfermedades crónicas y en la población general. Esto se debe al consumismo que nos inculcan, que afecta a la sociedad y al sistema de salud, pues en la actualidad lo normal es que todo sea procesado y tenga carencias nutricionales. Ahora concentro mi tiempo y mi esfuerzo en orientar, apoyar y guiar a los pacientes con respecto a la comida real y la nutrición.
As a doctor I am observing the consequences that a bad nutrition has on chronic disease and in the general population. This is due to the consumerism that is imposed on us and that affects society and the health system. Nowadays it is considered normal that all food is processed with little nutritional value. Now I´m focusing my time and effort on assessing, supporting and guiding patients regarding real food and nutrition.
La dieta cetogénica es el mejor plan nutricional que he probado. Hago ejercicio desde la adolescencia, pero ahora a los 40 años estoy viendo mejores resultados de que los que he tenido en el pasado. Tengo más energía, duermo mejor y estoy en la mejor forma física de mi vida. Es por eso que recomiendo la dieta baja en carbohidratos a mis pacientes.
Keto diet is the best nutritional plan that I have tried. I have been training since I was a teenager, but now at 40 years old I am seeing better results than what I´ve seen in the past. I have more energy, I sleep better and I´m in the best physical shape of my life. For this reason I recommend a low carb diet to my patients.

Durante más de 23 años he ayudado a personas con problemas metabólicos, la mayoría de ellos con sobrepeso, obesidad, diabetes, dislipidemia, trastornos tiroideos, desequilibrios suprarrenales, ovario poliquístico, síndrome de fatiga crónica, trastornos de auto imagen, cáncer y mucho más. Luego de ver cómo funcionan los diferentes enfoques de tratamiento, puedo concluir que una dieta baja en carbohidratos es necesaria para la verdadera recuperación y restauración de la homeostasis en todos los casos mencionados anteriormente. Para mí, los datos científicos y los resultados en nuestra práctica son la mejor evidencia de la eficacia de controlar la presencia de azúcares refinados y almidones en nuestra dieta.
During more than 23 years I have helped people with metabolic problems, most of them with overweight, obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia, thyroid problems, adrenal imbalance, chronic fatigue syndrome, self-image problems, cancer and many more. After seeing how the different approaches work, I can conclude that a low carb diet is necessary for the true recovery and restoration of homeostasis in all previously-mentioned cases. I think that scientific data and the results found in our practice are the best proof of the efficacy of controlling the presence of refined sugars and starches in our diet
Mi experiencia con la alimentación baja en carbohidratos es personal. Bajé 12 kg, reduje medidas, y logré tener exámenes de laboratorio normales. Recomiendo esta forma de alimentación ampliamente a mis pacientes y familiares. El cuerpo es el único lugar donde vivimos y debemos de cuidarlo. Esto es particularmente importante para México, que ocupa el primer lugar mundial en obesidad infantil. En realidad, esta no es una dieta en realidad sino una nueva forma de comer
I have a personal experience with the low carb diet. I lost 12 kg, reduced measurements and my labs came out normal. I recommend this way of eating to patients and family members. The body is the only place where we live and we must take care of it. This is especially important for Mexico, which occupies the first place in world child obesity. This is really not a diet, but a new way of eating.
Como médica gerontóloga, recomiendo una alimentación baja en carbohidratos y cetogénica en mis pacientes, porque además de encontrar buenos resultados en composición corporal, perfil lipídico, glicemias, reducción de crisis epilépticas y mejoras cognitivas, también es una dieta fácil de mantener en el tiempo.
Gracias a la ayuda de Diet Doctor con sus materiales visuales y explicaciones fáciles, además de deliciosas recetas, he logrado cambiar la calidad de vida de muchos de mis pacientes y sus familias.
As a doctor specialized in geriatrics, I recommend my patients to follow a low carb and keto diet. Apart from finding good results in body composition, lipidic profile, glycemias, reduction of epileptic crisis and cognitive improvements, it is a diet that is easy to maintain over time.
Thanks to Diet Doctor, its visual and easy explanations, as well as its delicious recipes, I have managed to change the quality of life of many of my patients and their families.
Antes de iniciar mi posgrado de Nutrición llegué a pesar 118kg (260 libras aproximadamente, llegando a una obesidad extrema). Trabajé en una clínica del sistema de salud pública y, al ver que muchos pacientes que tenían diabetes tipo 2, obesidad, dislipidemia, etc. necesitaban más y más dosis de medicamento, comprendí que la alternativa más segura y menos tóxica era la nutrición, por lo que decidí emprender mi camino hacia el estudio de los secretos de la nutrición humana.
En el año 2018 me gradué como Maestro Internacional de Nutrición y Dietética. Actualmente estoy cursando el Doctorado en Nutrición y a la vez poniendo en práctica lo aprendido de dos doctores que admiro mucho: mi maestro el Dr. Guillermo Rodríguez Navarrete (Nutrillermo) y el Dr. Jason Fung con el que aprendí el tratamiento de la obesidad y diabetes mellitus tipo 2 mediante una dieta baja en carbohidratos y alta en grasas saludables, y el uso del ayuno intermitente como herramienta complementaria para llegar incluso a revertir ésta última enfermedad. Gracias a esas herramientas valiosas logré bajar de peso y llegar a mi peso ideal 73kg”.
Before doing my postgraduate studies in Nutrition I weighed 118 kg (260 pounds approximately, which meant extreme obesity). I worked in a public clinic and when I saw that many patients had diabetes type 2, obesity, dislipidemia, etc. needed more and more medicine, so I understood that the more secure and less toxic alternative was nutrition, so I decided to start my journey towards the study of human nutrition.
In 2018 I graduated as an International Master in Nutrition and Dietetics. I am currently studying the PhD in Nutrition and putting into practice everything I learned from two doctors that I admire so much: Dr. Guillermo Rodríguez Navarrete (Nutrillermo) and Dr. Jason Fung, who taught me so much about obesity treatment and diabetes mellitus type 2 through a low carb and high fat diet, and the use of intermittent fasting as a complementary tool to reverse diabetes. Thanks to these valuable tools I was able to lose weight and reach my ideal weight of 73 kgs.
I have been in practice for 25 years. Initially I followed the AAP guidelines and recommended low fat diets for kids but never did I see any positive results. I have been using carbohydrate restricted diets in children for the past 20 years . I have witnessed type 2 diabetes resolve without medication. I have seen hundreds of growing children lose tremendous amounts of weight including several who have lost over 100 pounds. The improvement in self esteem is life changing.
Department of Family and Community Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School EVMS Hofheimer Hall, 825 Fairfax Ave, Norfolk, VA 23507, USA
My practice prescribes a low-carb or well formulated ketogenic diet for many conditions. We have had excellent success in helping patients to not only lose weight but to also improve or reverse type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and improve their overall health.
Unley Park Specialist Centre 386 Unley Rd, Unley Park SA 5061, Australia
I first began recommending a low-carbohydrate approach to diet and lifestyle in 2017 after discovering personal success with this way of eating. Since then, I've helped many patients adopt a LCHF diet and seen substantial clinical improvements — particularly with insulin resistance and diabetes — with this approach. Eating whole, nutritious food is good for everyone and results in the remission of disease and restoration of both physical and mental health.
VCU Medical Weight Loss Program, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine Ambulatory Care Center, 417 N 11th St, Richmond, VA 23298, USA
After 35 years in General Practice, it's been a joy to discover how to effectively reverse obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and hypertension. These conditions significantly impact the health and the longevity of so many, who feel they have no other choice but to continue to add to their medication list, as their condition progresses. Through a medically supervised Low-Carb and Intermittent Fasting program, I have witnessed the surprise and delight of many patients, as they reduce and often eliminate the need for medications and obtain freedom from insulin injections.
Family Medicine Birkenhead 29 Birkenhead Avenue, Birkenhead, Auckland 0626, New Zealand
Increasingly, I have come to understand how crucial the foods we choose in our daily lives are to our health and wellness. A low-carb diet has not only transformed my own sugar addiction but has helped my patients as well. The spread of the low-carb diet will help free patients suffering from diseases that can be cured through diet such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, autoimmune & allergy, heart & inflammatory disease as well as others. I sincerely hope that through Diet Doctor the use of the low-carb diet and its benefits expands further amongst people.
Cutting out carbs makes so much sense for so many people. I find the food guides and recipes on Diet Doctor very useful for helping people to make the changes they need. It's been very exciting and energising to journey with my patients over the past year or so. With the right information and guidance several have reversed significant health conditions including type 2 diabetes, hypertension and obesity. Discovering the health benefits of a low carb lifestyle has brought the joy back into medicine for me. The best is yet to come!
Greenbank Road Surgery 1B Greenbank Road, Liverpool, Merseyside, UK
I use LCHF diet for myself and patients since 2015 both for weight loss and diabetes. I also assist people to set up this diet for other indications (Alzheimer disease, cancers, autoimmune diseases, chronic pains). Last year I completed Nutrition Network session to improve my scientific knowledge on this topic. My goal is to build a online program such VirtaHealth or Reversa for Francophone countries in Europe and Africa. Diet Doctor is a wonderful resource for patients and doctors world-wide. We are waiting for the translation into French.
I have been advocating a low-carb, keto diet to my patients for about 4 years. I am very pleased with the results in terms of weight loss and remission of diabetes. I also recommend it for many other conditions as I strongly believe it to be the healthiest and most natural diet for humans. It is the way our ancestors would have eaten and I encourage all my patients to embrace this lifestyle change to find a healthier version of themselves.
I have been following a low carb healthy fat diet myself, in combination with intermittent fasting, for the past two years. I have seen an improvement in my health - weight loss, my allergies controlled and my arthritis improved. A low carb Mediterranean diet, with “cauliflower pizza” and “zucchini noodles”, is the solution for health and longevity in my book.
Integrative Health Solutions Belair SA 5052, Australia
I have completed a qualification in LCHF/Ketogenic Nutrition and Treatment with the Nutrition Network, and am part of an international study group of other low-carb healthcare professionals. I am running a weekly evening Low Carb Support Group at our practice.
Gladstone Central Medical Centre, Night Owl Centre Dawson Hwy, Gladstone Central QLD 4680, Australia
I have been a GP for over 40 years and when I retired from practice in 2015 I never expecting to return —but then I discovered low-carb, keto eating. I became fascinated with its potential to reverse diabetes and obesity and avoid chronic disease. Trying it myself was an amazing experience: I felt great, lost weight and no longer needed my antidepressants. Connecting with other low-carb professionals, I decided to re-register for my medical license. I now see patients with a young doctor and am looking forward to the future practicing this type of rewarding medicine.
I recommend low-carb nutrition for the majority of my patients and clients. And I send them all to Diet Doctor for the best recipes, instructional videos and written guides for everything someone needs to get started and to thrive on a low-carb lifestyle. Diet Doctor doesn't have anything to sell you; its only goal is to provide you with the highest quality, evidence-based information to help you improve your life. That is hard to find in today’s ad-driven and product-driven internet. In fact, I loved Diet Doctor so much, I decide to work for them.
4653 Carmel Mtn Rd, Suite 308-132 ,San Diego CA 92130
I am proud to be a low-carb physician and endorse Diet Doctor to all my patients. My personal journey has made me a passionate advocate. Despite my education and knowledge, my adherence to the Standard American Diet made me morbidly obese and sick. I was insulted to have society say I was 'lazy' and ate too much despite working over 70 hrs /week and maintaining an active community and family life. For years I knew it wasn't my fault. Thank you Diet Doctor for allowing me and my patients to lose weight, reverse disease and regain our health.
St Joseph's Complex Continuing Care Hospital 960 Notre Dame Ave Unit E, Sudbury, ON P3A 2T4, Canada
I have been doing Keto Medicine for about 3-4 years after shadowing Megan Ramos and Dr. Jason Fung weekly for about 6 months. I have watched all the videos on Diet Doctor, read all the books I can get my hands on, attended Lowcarb USA Conferences and taken Nutrition Network courses for Health Practitioners. My family practice has completely transformed: T2D patients are getting off their insulin, oral medications, obese patients are losing weight, patients are happier and healthier. I am happier and healthier. Keto Medicine has been a blessing to me, my family and my patients.
Medicentre Family Practice 1240 Bay St 9th Floor, Toronto, ON M5R 3N7, Canada
The power that a dietary change can have on obesity and associated metabolic conditions is huge. I have been using group visits and a low carbohydrate approach in my clinical practice since 2016. Patients are empowered and supported to improve their health with real food. The education and recipes from Diet Doctor have been key resource for us all!
Cowichan Valley Bariatric and Metabolic Clinic 103 Kenneth St, Duncan, BC V9L 1N5, Canada
I am a strong supporter of the LCHF lifestyle for 2+ years now, having I lost (and maintained) 35 lbs without difficulty and without much exercise. In 2013 I did an Ironman triathlon to get to this weight but soon after the race, to my disappointment, I regained to an all-time highest weight. Then I learned about LCHF and was able to lose my excess weight. I now preach the LCHF lifestyle to all of my patients daily. Obesity and some 238 associated diseases can be treated with a LCHF diet. Believe the science! Don't fear the fat!
Unity Point Health Meriter Monona 6408 Copps Ave, Monona, WI 53716, USA
I have been a fan personally of low-carb and very-low-carb diets for quite some time. I saw how they worked for myself and family members. I had been reluctant to share with patients, not wanting to deviate from ""standard of care." After a few years I couldn't, in good conscience, keep this "secret" any longer. In a relatively short time, patients have seen improvements and decreased medications. Helping patients fix their problems with lifestyle changes that really work is infinitely more rewarding than prescribing another pill.
We recommend low-carb and keto diets with and without intermittent fasting to all of our patients who have lifestyle-related chronic conditions, because of the science behind these approaches and their impressive clinical results.

I have been applying functional medicine and low-carb diets in my specialty (Ob/Gyn) and to treat autoimmune and systemic chronic conditions for the last 5 years. It started when I began noticing that dietary and lifestyle changes would have an effect on my infertile patients. I started reading further into nutrition and fertility, and found out about low-carb. After initial focus on my own specialty, I have started work on issues such as neurodegenerative and cardio-metabolic diseases. Diet Doctor is one of my fun daily feeds, always providing useful and interesting information.

Nutritional advice is a fundamental part of my neurosurgical practice. In conjunction with providing advanced neurosurgical techniques to patients with neurological diseases, I optimize simple foundational health imperatives to eliminate root causes of disease, improving patient outcomes. The major barrier to patients' understanding of sound nutrition is our industrialised, modern world. A phenomenal problem relates to the emergence of advice and dependence of society on carbohydrates, in particular fructose as an energy source. This is simply and effectively resolved by education about low-carbohydrate and healthy fat dietary lifestyle which progressively evolves into nutritional ketosis, restoring metabolic health and insulin sensitivity.
The Back Pain Centre Wickham Terrace, Spring Hill QLD, Australia
I am a physician with type 1 diabetes. I have been using a low-carb, ketogenic diet to treat my own diabetes for the past 16 years. Evidence shows that low-carb diets are safe and effective. With the potential to reverse type-2 diabetes, control type-1 diabetes and even stop, slow down, or reverse complications, a low-carb diet can be life changing. Diet Doctor provides the most accurate and relevant materials for a healthy, easy and fun low-carb experience.
After more than 30 years practising medicine, the first 15 as a hospital-based doctor and the next 15 years as a family physician in both the UK & New Zealand, I discovered the low-carb, keto diet in 2017 first through the movie The Magic Pill and then through my own extensive reading and research. I have become a passionate advocate for LCHF and keto eating. I am convinced it is the best way of eating for humankind and is based on good scientific evidence.
Botany Doctor Medical Practice 588 Chapel Rd, East Tamaki, Auckland, New Zealand
I see many patients whose wellbeing is affected by shortness of breath and sleep disorders. By adopting a low-carb, healthy fat lifestyle, many of these people feel better, avoid unnecessary medications and achieve great overall health. My family and I live this way and I love to inspire others to gain the same benefits. The Diet Doctor website is a great resource to help people adopt a LCHF lifestyle.
Bentleigh Specialist Centre 116 Patterson Road, Bentleigh VIC, Australia
I recommend low-carb and keto diets with and without intermittent fasting to all of my patients who have lifestyle-related chronic conditions, because of the science behind these approaches and their impressive clinical results. I also recommend they visit the Diet Doctor website to find trustworthy information and delicious recipes.
Are you struggling to stay off sugar and flour? Addiction to these, and other trigger foods is real. The processed food industry has engineered food to be as addictive as alcohol, tobacco and even cocaine.As an addiction specialist, I recommend Diet Doctor as a resource for my patients, many of whom are addicted to sugar. Diet Doctor offers recipes that are delicious and remove the addictive elements from food. I encourage high-fat and low-carb food plans only - because they work: You can lose weight, keep it off and be free from food obsession. Freedom tastes great!
In 2010 I came face-to-face with the compelling, robust evidence for the effectiveness of the low-carb, high-fat diet to prevent and treat serious diseases like diabetes, obesity and heart disease. It contradicted everything I knew as a doctor and scientist about optimal nutrition. I have since aimed to change medical dogma and foster respectful dialogue on evidence-based nutrition, but at a brutal personal and professional cost, even though eventually vindicated. The Noakes Foundation, since 2012, has been promoting unbiased nutritional research into the effects of LCHF on all aspects of human health. The sugar-free train is bound for glory.
I first learned about the benefits of a low-carb diet from a friend, who reversed his insulin resistance and cured his chronic neuropathic foot pain by changing to low carb, high fat nutrition. Since then, I have watched several patients improve their health and discontinue medications for various chronic medical problems, including type 2 diabetes, gut problems, and chronic skin issues. My own family has benefited from changing to a low-carb, high fat diet as well. Recently, I wrote an article for the Journal of the Kentucky Academy of Family Physicians about our flawed nutritional guidelines, urging more physicians to learn about and recommend low carb, high fat eating. I regularly refer my patients and friends to Dietdoctor.com to help them get started. Thankfully, as a Direct Primary Care physician, I have time to spend with patients, educating them on healthy lifestyle choices, including low-carb nutrition. Helping people lose weight and feel better, without medications, has been very rewarding.
Bluegrass Family Wellness 6225 W Hwy 146, Suite 1 Crestwood, KY 40014
During my professional experience as a physician, I’ve been working with patients suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Seeing them taking a lot of medications and living their lives without quality has been a frustrating situation. By applying this knowledge of medicine regarding LCHF food I already see not only changes in me but in my patients who have left their medication, improving conditions that seem irreversible and living a better life. Diet Doctor is a platform that allows patients to learn about how to treat their medical condition in an easy and fun way.

Our clinic has been helping patients lose weight and improve their health for almost 20 years. We counsel patients one-on-one to help them adopt a low-carb lifestyle that fits their circumstances. Our programs range from moderate low-carb to ketogenic, often involving some time-restricted eating/intermittent fasting, too. Daily, we see patients losing significant body fat and resolving/improving many health issues, including diabetes, infertility/PCOS, intracranial hypertension, fibromyalgia, and other issues directly impacted by insulin and inflammation. Our goal is to help patients optimize their long-term health and wellness by developing individualized low-carb lifestyles that are sustainable and enjoyable!
I really enjoy the process of reducing or eliminating medicines for chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, reflux, hypercholesterolaemia etc., by attacking the root cause through a low-carb diet and patient education. Diet doctor.com is a fantastic resource that I suggest for this as well as being a source of recipes.
Caufield Family Medical Practice 263 Glen Eira Road, Caulfield North VIC 3161, Australia

Physicians for Weight Loss Physicians For Weight Loss, Skokie Boulevard, Northbrook, IL, USA
As an interventional cardiologist, I have used the low carbohydrate, high fat (LCHF) / keto diet for several years to successfully treat patients with metabolic disease, diabetes, heart disease and to improve their cholesterol. Every month, my team and I give free low-carb diet seminars in the auditorium at the Clear Lake Heart and Vascular Institute, which regularly has more than 100 attendees. Patients are also helped through our Facebook group, "Eat Mostly Fats - Dr. Nadir Ali" where they can post recipes, accomplishments and questions and also watch the monthly seminar via Facebook LIVE.

JumpstartMD One Embarcadero Center 1 Embarcadero Center R-1203, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA
Since finding low carb in 2018, I've been blown away by its effectiveness to reverse many chronic diseases, especially diabetes and obesity. In 30 years of practice I never took anyone off their insulin and rarely reduced their medications. Now I am doing so every day! Patients lose weight, reduce pain, enjoy improved mental clarity and energy all while reducing their risk factors for cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia and more. I now run a metabolic clinic and a special “8-Week Keto Bootcamp”. Diet Doctor is integral to this training – a great resource for patients and myself alike.
MercyOne Kimball Family Medicine & Pediatrics 2055 Kimball Ave, Waterloo, IA, USA
I offer services by video chat or phone to clients across North America. I get great satisfaction helping people safely come off of their medications, especially people with Type 2 Diabetes who are using insulin. Seeing other clients come for weight loss but then have significant improvements in other areas such as symptoms of PCOS, arthritis, and daily migraines is very rewarding. As a pharmacist it is great to help people manage their medications by coming off of them instead of always adding in more!
Many people in my family on my father's side suffer from diabetes. I also used to eat very badly until I collapsed in 2009. It was discovered that I had hypertension, high cholesterol, prediabetic metabolic syndrome and morbid obesity. I decided to investigate and change my way of eating because I knew that if I continued in the same way, I was going to die: my cousins, aunts and uncles have died very quickly due to diabetes and its various complications. After I stared to eat low carb I went down from a size 48 to a 36, all my health indicators returned to normal, and now I don't take any medications for the diseases I am genetically disposed to: for the moment, they have all been reversed.
Hospital Clínica San Francisco Calle 12A NO, Guayaquil, Ecuador
I have 5 years' experience with low carb diets. I started as a father looking for a solution for my family, but when I saw the results, I brought the experience to my patients, too. Currently I have treated 2500 patients, with incredible effects on health and body weight.
Low carb is such a great tool: people with diabetes can reverse their disease (something unheard of), people with obesity can lose weight, etc.
Everyone gets healthier and feels better!
It is wonderful to be able to help all these people cure themselves of these chronic pathologies. I still can't believe it! It's a magnificent tool!
Clínica Pigerl srl Ruta Nacional 12, Santo Pipo, Misiones Province, Argentina
I offer a low-carbohydrate, high-fat approach to my patients who are struggling with their weight, or any disease likely to be related to insulin resistance. It makes complete sense from a physiological and evolutionary stand-point. The Diet Doctor website is a valuable resource to help patients get started and explore further information on the topic and I routinely recommend it to my patients starting on their LCHF journey.
Sante Medical 161 Given Terrace, Paddington QLD 4064, Australia
I have used the ketogenic approach to nutrition in my own life, as well as clinical practice, for weight loss, reduction in inflammation and insulin resistance, and a myriad of other positive effects. My goal is to empower patients to understand how much misinformation there is in health care so they can make more informed decisions. Dietdoctor.com makes that so much easier!

Cunningham Clinic 3486 Youngfield St, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033, USA
I have been prescribing the low-carb, high fat diet to my obese and type 2 diabetes patients for five years with good success and have been able to either markedly reduce or cease insulin Rx in some patients. I have referred many patients to Diet Doctor for information and recipes. I have been sharing my knowledge and teaching other family doctors all I know as I believe this knowledge is for the public good.
Church Street Medical Practice 280 Church St, Newtown NSW 2042, Australia
I have prescribed a low carb, high fat dietary pattern to patients for 4 years. The results have been consistent: decreased blood sugar, decreased central weight and improved energy. The low carb prescription is now my first response for obesity and diabetes.
MetabolicHealth Program 465 Grand Ave W, Chatham, ON N7L 1C5, Canada
I am super-passionate about health and wellbeing. I believe everyone can enjoy good health and live long healthy lives without the need for medications.

I would love to walk with you on your journey to good health.
Real Healthy Me 15a/20 Welles Street, Christchurch Central City, Christchurch, New Zealand
As a psychiatrist in practice for over 30 years, I am convinced that the keto diet should be the first step in treating psychiatric illness. Not only does this diet restore metabolic health, it can reduce or eliminate the need for psychotropic medications. I follow a keto diet and also see the benefit from its power to improve concentration, stabilize mood, reduce anxiety, eliminate food cravings and provide satiety with effortless weight control. Diet Doctor is my go to website for all the up to date information needed to succeed in using a ketogenic diet.
I am a GP in the south west of Ireland, a beautiful, but remote area. I always had an interest in disease prevention and a holistic approach towards my patients. However I certainly was guilty in telling them "to eat less and move more". I still cringe, but we didn't know better. I got interested in low carb about 7 years ago and it has changed how I feed my family and what I tell my patients. Since last year I run a dedicated Lifestyle Clinic in our practice, with now over 100 patients, that are healthier and happier, some of them have reversed their diabetes. It's fun to be a doctor again
Marino Medical Wolfe Tone Square, Town Lots, Bantry, Co. Cork, P75 PC96, Ireland
LCHF changed my life more than 5 years ago and my medical practice has changed 180 degrees since then. Getting to the root cause is so much more satisfying than applying band aids. Diet Doctor has been a tremendous resource for myself and my patients to get going on a low carb journey!
Bronte Medical Group 78 Jones St, Oakville, ON L6L 6C5, Canada
Fulfillment is when you are able to de-prescribe medications from your patients. Shifting my management from medication centric to optimizing nutrition has been the best decision I've undertaken. Diet Doctor provided my entry into the low carb world with comprehensive articles and continues to be my avenue of introduction to my patients. The Nutrition Network provided me with the armamentarium to strengthen my LCHF practice.
Prime Nextcare Uno Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines
Ever since I stumbled upon the seemingly under-appreciated concept of insulin resistance and its relationship to chronic metabolic disease late in 2017, I never stopped learning about it. I applied it to myself right away because I knew I needed to change before I can truly help my patients. Suddenly, I had a whole new perspective that made a lot of sense with results to support it. I never looked back to clinic as usual since then. Diet doctor has been a go-to website for me personally and to my patients who are willing to get their health back. I am very grateful.
Cadiz City Health Office Zone 3, 6121 Cabahug St, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, Philippines
The weight loss is secondary, the primary outcomes is the improvement in all aspects of insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension, depression, PCOS, early onset Alzheimers. This needs to be promoted as a primary means of treatment.

I have been always looking for ways to improve people's lives, so when I came across low carb lifestyles and started to get them into my clinical practice, seeing my patients taking back control of their health, especially in diabetics, was simply amazing. Their success became my joy. You can really feel like you are doing a difference, especially when they come from years of frustrations.
Centro Médico Limarí Socos 76, Ovalle, Coquimbo, Chile
I've been studying the low carb diet for the last 10 years and completed the course of Nutrition Network Professional Training in LCHF/Ketogenic Nutrition and Treatment from the Noakes Foundation in 2018. I have used this approach with my patients with excellent results, especially in asthma and hyper reactivity in which I identified a strong association with insulin resistance. I am proud to be part of this cutting edge community of medicine.

I've been advocating the LCHF/Keto diet, along with intermittent and extended fasting for friends, family, and patients since 2016. I've seen amazing reversals of chronic disease with this way of eating, and encourage all my patients to incorporate low-carb eating and/or fasting into their lives. The Diet Doctor website is one of the first, and best, resources I use to help my patients learn about this lifestyle
NET Health DPC 2613 N 21st St, Tacoma, WA 98406, USA
I regularly recommend a low-carb, keto diet for my patients. I have found it reduces inflammation and instances of muscoloskeletal pain. Many of my female patients have found a reduction in menopausal symptoms by adopting a low-carb, keto diet. My patients have been able to reduce sympathetic hypertension by addressing glucose levels. I provide my patients with a formulated ketogenic diet and test their glucose and ketone levels during office visits.
After practicing medicine ,with special interest in diabetes, thyroid & obesity for last 30 years, now I am equipped with an evidence-based method to reverse diabetes, reduce weight and maintain weight loss. This is by a low-carb, healthy fat & adequate protein diet with intermittent fasting in overweight patients, achieving remarkable sustained results. Had I known about this in 1990, my practice would have been really different.

Low carb together with concepts of a nutritionally well-formulated diet are the scientific right way to get rid of challenges of metabolic syndrome, and reduce the risk for atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
European Prevention Center Luise-Rainer-Straße 6-10, 40235 Düsseldorf, Germany
A low-carb diet addresses the root of a various number of health problems, like obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and many more. I try to find a way of implementing a low-carb lifestyle into the daily routines of my clients, so that long term goals can be accomplished - e.g. weight loss, better immune system, fighting diabetes, getting better in different sports disciplines. In combination with intermittent fasting it works even better. And if we add daily exercise, that's when "magic happens

Direct Doctors 2639 S County Trail, East Greenwich, RI 02818, USA
It was during my time doing inpatient hospital work that I developed a true sense of the prevalence of weight-related problems in our community. I found that by fulfilling the role of ally and partner in my patient’s health journey, my patients wanted to talk about weight management. I believe anyone can significantly improve their health and quality of life with education and support. I’m very passionate about helping my clients achieve their goals, and it is rewarding to watch them regain control of their health, not through the treatment of illness, but through the promotion of health.

I work at Virta Health where we specialize in reversing type 2 diabetes. We utilize personalized carbohydrate restriction and continuous remote care to rapidly de-prescribe medications. I regularly visit Diet Doctor for its educational and practical lifestyle content.
Virta Clinic 501 Folsom St, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA
We prescribe keto diets for our overfat, overweight patients followed by low-carb maintenance eating. We often prescribe anti-obesity medicines to assist with weight loss and continue those to assist with long-term weight maintenance. Long-term success with maintenance is difficult because of residual irreversible neuro-endocrine pathology that can be more successfully managed by including long-term nutritional ketosis and an anti-obesity medicine. Post weight loss harmful eating, food cravings, obsessive thoughts of food, and lack of eating restraint can be moderated by anti-obesity medicines.
Hendricks for Health 2510 Douglas Blvd, Roseville, CA 95661, USA
I’ve been practicing and prescribing low-carb, mildly ketogenic diets along with intermittent fasting since 2008. It significantly improves most patients' health, helps reverse prediabetes and diabetes, helps with sustainable weight loss and other chronic issues such as hypertension, fatigue, hypothyroidism, fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. Fasting protocols have also been an effective way to complement chemotherapy and immunotherapy and management of weight loss plateaus.

1317 SE 25th Loop, Suite 101 Ocala, Florida, United States, 34471
By individualized variations of low-carb diets, with or without moderate types of exercise, my patients reach a better health and life balance when they lose weight, feel better, and improve or even reverse various disease which are linked to metabolic syndrome.
I no longer practice office based medicine, rather am doing full time hospital medicine. I take the time to inform all my hospital patients of the benefits of low carb, ketogenic diets to control and reverse obesity and diabetes as well as giving instructions on the principles of how it works and how to implement it. I refer them to my website for further instructions on how to start the diet, as well as instructional and informational videos and blogs. I also recommend they visit dietdoctor.com.
Marion General Hospital 1560 Sumrall Rd, Columbia, MS 39429, USA
As an interventional cardiologist, I started focusing more on the side of prevention shortly after McAllen was recently named the most obese city in the United States. I quickly became frustrated in regard to the health issues affecting the majority of the population here and for this reason decided to modify my approach from intervention to prevention. Instead of focusing on sick-care I actively focus on health-care aiming to prevent the catastrophic complications of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Rio Grande Valley Cardiology 101 E Ridge Rd, McAllen, TX 78503, USA
I have an interest in diabetes and preventative medicine and have started recommending intermittent fasting in combination with a low-carb, high-fat diet to all of my patients both for treatment and reversal of diabetes and general good health and prevention. I recommend the Diet Doctor website to all of my patients so they can find the best information from knowledgeable experts regarding living a low-carb lifestyle, from educational videos to amazing recipes and everything in between.

Nally Family Practice 14800 W Mountain View Blvd, Surprise, AZ, USA
Switching from the standard American diet to the low-carb lifestyle has improved my life, as well as the lives of many of my patients. My patients have been successful in weight loss and in the reversal of type 2 diabetes by following the LCHF plan. Diet Doctor has played a role in providing resources, recipes, and great videos to help patients understand and stay on track with this lifestyle. One of my favorite things to do in practice is to take people OFF medications. The correct, lifestyle approach is instrumental in leading healthy lives and reducing the burden of chronic disease.
Three Health Medical Weight Loss Solutions 21727 76th Ave W, Edmonds, WA, USA
Use of the ketogenic diet has been transformative to my medical practice, my patients, and myself! Eating fat and protein while avoiding carbohydrates is the key to a significant improvement in health, a reduction of inflammation and pain, and long term weight loss. Obesity is a chronic disease; sometimes it is adequately controlled, and other times, the treatment needs modification. Throughout this process, obesity management is impacted by dietdoctor.com. The resources here are invaluable. Our clinic refers frequently to dietdoctor.com, and we send our patients here, as well!
ReforMedicine 3004 Golf Rd, Eau Claire, WI 54701, USA
As someone who used a low-carb keto diet to prevent chronic diseases prevalent in my family and to lose the “baby weight”, I am a enthusiastic proponent of a well formulated low-carb, keto diet. For people taking medications, keto-with-a-coach is the safer route. I help my patients transition into the keto lifestyle while providing deprescribing of medications, weight monitoring, and laboratory test monitoring along the way. My colleagues tell me that it is detrimental for a pharmacy to reduce clients' medication use, but our ultimate obligation is to help our patients maintain their health.
Medicine Shoppe 199 7930 Bowness Rd NW, Calgary, AB, Canada
As a functional medicine practitioner I have focused on facilitating tools for my patients to create a lifestyle change through modification in diet, especially a well-planned low-carb and ketogenic diet. I am very nutrition-oriented since for most patients this is one of the most powerful interventions that will help them recuperate health. For this, providing education is fundamental in order for them to take control of their lives using sources that provide evidence-based recommendations that support this approach.
I had been suffering from enteritis (IBS) and gastritis. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, insomnia, snoring, irritable bladder, were other health problems I had suffered. All these ailments or illnesses disappeared pretty quickly when I restricted carbohydrates and increase the natural fat.
I realized that these mechanisms should also be able to apply to many other people, and started to spread my experiences.
As a specialist in gynecology, gynecologic oncology and breast cancer management including surgery, I support fasting and ketogenic diet approach for a wide range of metabolic health conditions of my patients. For example, a recent review paper I co-authored (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnut.2020.00021/full) highlights as an emerging evidence that a correct and well-formulated ketogenic metabolic therapy could be helpful as a complementary pre-surgical and post-surgical approach for women with all stages of breast cancer, even metastatic disease. KD reduces glucose availability to cancer cells, systemic inflammation, and, with other biochemical mechanisms, enables the targeting of cancer cells without causing damage to normal cells. A KD may also improve progression-free and overall survival for most breast cancer patients.
