What's next?


So you finished the 2-week challenge? That’s fantastic, congratulations! What are you going to do now? Here’s a secret. The first two weeks are the hardest.

The first two weeks are when you get 90% of the side effects, and 10% of the benefits. Now it gets way easier. You already know how to cook and eat low carb, so just keep doing it. Get all the rest of the benefits.

Let’s keep going!

Here’s another piece of good news: If you enjoyed this two-week challenge you can keep getting new meal plans and shopping lists indefinitely, with tons of new awesome keto and low-carb recipes.

There’s no guessing or research required. Just choose whether to keep going on a strict ketogenic low-carb diet – for maximum effectiveness – or if you’re ready to reintroduce a few carbs and try a more moderate diet for more flexibility.

You can even choose vegetarian or dairy-free weekly meal plans, or meal plans based on Team Diet Doctor’s all-time favorites.

All meal plans come with weekly shopping lists prepared, for 1-8 people, with US or metric units, and easily printable recipe lists.

You can choose to skip any meal and the shopping lists will adapt! Hey, you can even switch out any meal, for any of our more than 600 low-carb recipes, and everything will adapt. And the food is amazing, but you know that already.

    Hey there Irene... I'm tuning 50 in Couple of months and I found that putting intermittent fasting in also help me. Only while you sleep. I do 7 pm to 10 am. I drink lemon water during my morning fast. Listen to Dr. Eric Burg... I don't buy his products, but he talks about how important the fasting is and how to incorporate the "Healthy Keto" to your diet. Hope this helps, He sure Helped me. I have a long way to go but I feel better. This program helped me learn how to incorporate different foods. I don't eat pork or any shellfish.. I limit Chicken and Beef. My staple is Fish and Flax seed meal or oil. Good luck...

    I have now completed the 14 Day Challenge and I'm even more excited than I was on Day 1! I am 51 years old and was diagnosed with T2 Diabetes around 30 years ago. Unfortunately and unwisely, I never really believed I was "sick" because I didn't feel any differently so I mostly ignored it. Flash forward 30 years and I have diabetic neuropathy, problems with my eyes and am over 100 lbs. overweight. The older I got, the more difficult it was to control my weight and therefore my blood glucose was sky high and I was prescribed insulin daily. After 2 weeks of the challenge, I have lost over 15 lbs., my blood glucose is now in the normal range with decreasing my daily dose of insulin from 65 units down to 20 units!! What is the difference? I am not only not hungry, but I don't even think about food as much. I have begun intermittent fasting for 16 hours daily and now eat from 1pm - 9pm (while constantly monitoring my levels). I feel for the first time in 30 years that this is a program that can become a lifestyle vs. a temporary change of habit! I am so happy to have found the Diet Doctor site and have registered to become a paying member so I can keep all of these tools on hand.

    I have just completed the 2 week challenge and I have gained half a kilo! I'm drinking lots of water (2 -3litres a day) and exercise for 40 -45 minutes most days. I definitely experienced keto flu and keto sticks confirm I'm in ketosis. So why no weight loss and worse, weight gain?

    So, I was very skeptical about starting this diet. Anyway, I decided to try because if I didn't how else would I know it worked. On the first optional weigh-in I lost 4 inches off my waist and 8 pounds! I was in disbelief! I continued on to the second week. While there was no change in my weight and waist measurements, I committed to continue and try the free month membership. I am on my third week. Everyday is a challenge but I must see it through!
  7. Judy
    I felt very full and satisfied, my portions actually got smaller because of my stomach shrinking. The fats that I was eating was making me feel full. Good Luck, I just reached my goal! Now it's maintaining
  8. Kris
    I am going to do a "re-do" because I fell off the bandwagon. I've been off grains and processed foods and most sugar but that crept back in. So going to go strict this time. I find that using artificial sweeteners keeps my sugar addiction very much alive so none of that for me. I know I can kick it. I'm also going to try the membership for a month to see if that helps. I don't have much weight to lose but I want to stay as healthy and active as I can.

    First time in a year of membership I signed up, though never followed plan...busy workin et cetera See When OFF work 6 weeks from week 43. Have lost 7kg in one year, never gained, but on stalls
  10. Tish
    I felt I was not in ketosis for more that a day or so. I did not experience any of the side effects. I have been using the recipes all have been wonderful and delish!! I then just ate eggs with some fats for a couple of days to see if that would help. I am on my 4th week and I really don't feel any difference. I will continue until the end of the year, which was my original goal. This is an easy life style change for me, I will keep going and see what happens.

    Hi I'm in my 14 days of the challenge and I lost only 1 kilo and and maybe 2 inches I experienced sometimes craving for something sweet but after watching the 5 common mistakes video I understand the importance of keeping the 20gr of carb and moderate protein I just need to be more consistent and my goal is to do this method for 3 months so I can't give up yet eventhough I didn't lose so much weight like I thought so my advise let's keep it up but I can't deny that my energy levels are higher than before...thank you for this wonderful support from Australia with love

    Hi, my name is Claire and today is my 80th birthday. I finished the two week challenge and it was so easy I couldnt believe it. Of course I am used to cooking and preparing meals. Beginning weight was 160, and this morning it was 152. Eight pounds just melted away. Such a drastic change with just a little touch of the flu. I have been trying for many years to lose a little weight with disappointing results and had just resigned myself to the fact I was always going to have a belly. Wow! First thing I noticed was my belly shrinking. Thank you for providing me with this new information and new lifestyle. I intend to continue doing it because I’ve never felt better. Thank you.

    Congratulations!! I'm 72 and very fat (over 200#) and trying this to lower my blood pressure and get off my pill. I hope I have as good results as you are having.

    lost 4 lbs., however, I was already trying to lose weight due to diabetic issues looming on the horizon. I only had problems with the food as I had just purchased groceries. So was trying to use up food already in my kitchen! I started on keto with 2 days pr. week of fasting Sept. 16th. and total loss is 13.5 lbs. The amazing thing that has happened is: I have had fingertip psoriasis for over 20 years. The past four years it has been non stop and getting so bad I have had to "glove up" to eat finger foods. Has spread to my feet (OUCH!) Within a week, my hands have almost entirely cleared up and my feet are improving. No more bleeding fingers!! Nothing else has changed other than my diet. I am overjoyed and only hope it will last. Have had to give up all my hobbies ie. sewing, needlepoint, garden work and now baking. My hands are still sensitive but oh my gosh! This is such a gift. I have become a true believer in a Keto lifestyle and hope others will at least try it for 2 weeks and judge for yourself. I look forward to trying many of the recipes over the next weeks..........

    And thank you Ketogenic

    Hello. I lost five pounds but more important my stomach issues and heartburn completely disappeared. I want to lose six more pounds but the real incentive to stay on Keto is how my physical discomfort is no longer present. I was never hungry on the two week plan but hope I never have to eat so many eggs and mayonnaise on a daily basis!

    I'm so pleased that I took the plunge and did this challenge! I can't tell you how much better I feel in just 2 weeks. I have so much energy in the morning I don't have to rush for a coffee;-) I still have one later in the afternoon for taste, not necessity. I've lost 9lbs and I feel amazing. 14 days ago I was so discouraged being at my highest weight of 15st 10, and now I am 15st 1lb. I honestly feel like a different woman. I am sleeping better, not having so many aches and pains. I am starting to feel like 'myself' in my body again. There's no doubt I will continue with this lifestyle change. The transition has not been as hard as I thought. The daily emails kept me focussed and the wealth of information on the site has truly been a blessing. Each day I am learning more and more. But more importantly I am applying what I learn in my life. Therefore this time I am fully conscious of the 'whys' behind what I am doing. Thanks you so much Dr. Andreas for communicating this important health information in such a simple way!

    I cannot see anywhere that I can continue with the daily meal plan being emailed to me, is this an option? Thank you

    Not with new recipes, no that is not. However, if you are a site member (we do have a 30 day free trial), then you can create custom meal plans!

    I am 73 and have been on diabetic medicines for 30 years. I now take insulin and have an insulin pump. After two weeks, I am off three medicines. One of them (jardiance) for diabetes, one for gerd, and one for cholesterol. My blood sugar averages around 105 and that is good for me! This is a way of life for me now. My weight which is over 200lbs. is still a problem, but I am hoping that the longer I stay on this, then my weight will go down. I think right now I am eating up insulin and eventually I will eat up fat. Here's hoping for even more positive results. I have reduced my insulin under my doctor's watchful eye and I am grateful for the amazing change.

    Hi..just finished 2 week challenge and am amazed!! I'm 67 and 30 lbs over my "feel comfortable" . I cant remember ever staying on diet for 2 weeks and not even been tempted even though my office has a daily stash of candy, donuts, cakes and snacks. I have dropped 7 lbs and can feel difference in waist line. I have even enjoyed a couple of vodka drinks:)
    I am experiencing a terrible, scary time, with heart palpitations and shortness of breath. I experienced some of this before I started diet and attributed it to being overweight (not excessive) and not exercising. Although I read some of this might be side effect, it has gotten serious enough in past 2 weeks that my I now have appt with cardiologist for stress test and checkup. Heart issues do run in my family. I just want to be safe so I can stay on this amazing low ketonic diet to drop another 10 lbs then move up to less restricted. I'll keep you posted.

    I am surprised by how quickly the two weeks passed. I’ve had good success with the diet though have experienced fatigue some during both weeks. Following the challenge meal plan made it easier to stick to the diet but I didn’t have time to make all of the meals. Luckily, each recipe resulted in leftovers so I didn’t have to cook as frequently as the plan calls for. Here are some changes I’ve noticed since I’ve been on the diet: greatly reduced my desire to drink wine; improved my sleep; more energy (except for those few days when I experienced fatigue); spent less money bc no eating in restaurants and no money spent on alcohol; decrease in waist circumference of three inches; general level of satiety remains constant so I’m not preoccupied with feelings of hunger and, consequently, am not tempted by carbs. Thanks for all the great information and guidance offered through diet doctor. I have learned so much and am very hopeful about achieving my weight loss goal!
