Common questions

 
Do I have to pay to benefit from this site?No. The daily blog and all the main guides, recipes, get started challenge and much else is free forever. And all the membership material is free to check out for a month. Should you stay a member for more than one month you are supporting the production of ever more great free material for everyone.
 
Shouldn’t everything online be free?The material on the membership pages can not be produced for free. It’s the result of the full-time job of 17 people, as well as costly equipment. However, you can check it all out for free, just cancel within 30 days.
 
Is the content for beginners or for more experienced people?Both. There is a lot of content for beginners but also a number of videos, presentations and interviews on more specialized topics.

 
I already know everything about LCHF, why should I join?It’s great that you already know so much! The membership site contains knowledge from many of the world’s leading experts, packaged as professionally and simply as possible. Including many things that surprised us, even though many of us has been learning about low carb for a decade or more. Additionally, membership fees support the free Diet Doctor site. So you can help other people to learn what you already know.Finally: you can try it for free.
 
Couldn’t all this be financed by advertising or sponsorship instead?No. That would require selling our credibility and we’d never do that. Diet Doctor is completely independent from the food and pharmaceutical industries, we don’t accept a penny from them. Not in the past, not now, not in the future. Never. Learn more
 
Do I need a fast internet connection?All new videos are recorded in highest 4K quality, so a fast internet connection will give you maximum quality. However, it’s also possible to watch videos in lower resolution if your internet connection is slower. It’s very possible to watch via a modern mobile connection as well. If you can watch videos on YouTube you’re fine.
 
Why charge in dollars and not Euros or pounds?Half of the readers on the Diet Doctor site are Americans, more than any other country or region. But it’s fine to join from other places, the cost is automatically exchanged into your currency. E.g. €8.2 or £7.0 (May 2017) if you stay beyond the free month. More currencies
 
I don’t have the time to watch videos online, could I listen instead?Sure. It’s very possible to just listen to interviews, presentations etc. while driving a car, walking around or doing something else. We are also providing audio files for the videos. Furthermore, we offer high-quality transcripts of our videos. Finally, it’s possible to optionally watch all our videos at 1.5x or 2x speed, saving time.
 
Sounds like a great idea, but surely not many people will be interested in supporting Diet Doctor with a membership. Isn’t this revolution going to fail?It’s already working. We launched a more basic membership site on our Swedish site in June 2014 and we were astounded by the support shown. In January 2018 there were over 8,500 Swedish members supporting us – and more are joining every month. This English membership site was launched in April 2015 and passed 1,000 members within days. There are now (January 2018) over 40,000 total members and the number continues to grow rapidly.We’ll always use every member’s support to the best of our abilities, see the next answer.
 
What are member fees used for?Every cent is used for getting closer to our ultimate goal: empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.At this time we’re focused on improving our site to make low carb simple, producing more great content for both members and non-members, as well as on growing our organization and hiring more great people to help out in our cause.We may be a new and small organization still (17 full-time coworkers and 20+ part-timers/freelancers/moderators) but we are growing exponentially, thanks to the support of ever more readers and members.

    About to finish my two first weeks of the Keto challenge, I have to say it’s been a walk in the park, easy recipes and tasty.Im on target to loose around 9 to 10 pounds by the end of this two weeks. Been trying to loose this stubborn 10 pounds for almost 18 months! I will keep going total weight loss in the past 3 years has been 40 lbs the old fashion way. I would hit walls and regain, would be demotivated and also been plagued with training injures trying to keep a training regime that did not deliver. This takes the thinking out of eating, I have stopped thinking of food all the time and enjoyed other things in my life. My only concern is the slow transit of my food and lack of potassium ,vitamines and the salt content in this diet. Any idea anyone on supplements. I know I can up my carbs once I hit my target weight but a little more clarification on this would help. I’m a convert! Thanks you!

    Hi Samantha!

    Most removed comments is because of spam. Some removed is members who want to cancel. When we have done the cancellation the comments are removed. Almost no comments are removed because of complaints. But in rare case when bad language is used we will remove the comments.

    We encourage everyone to give positive and negative feedback in the comment section and most of all we hope comments are used to help each other.

    I love Low Carb it makes me feel much better - my joints improve, my skin looks better and I automatically drink so much more water. I had signed up and paid the subscription which I thought was very reasonable, however I'm just not losing weight. I am 4.5 to 5.0 mmol/L in the morning after fasting apx 14 hrs. I have been fasting through the night and day and only eating my early evening meal with my family. I am well overweight by 75lbs. What the hell am I doing wrong!?

    Yes I'd like to know that answer as well! As I have seen improvements such as yours but the scale is so stubborn. I do the 16:8 - count my carbs and still weight is static.
  9. eva
    Like you, I am not losing weight. I've been doing this now for 5 weeks and have not lost weight. Now I am counting carbs (20 grams), still no movement. I followed this diet a year and a half ago and then lost about 7 pounds within a couple of months. Doing it again this time...no weight loss. In the in-between time I was eating moderate no carbs and gained back the 7 pounds which I'm working on losing. Will not give up as I understand that this is one of the healthiest way to eat.
  10. Bret
    The not losing weight issue seems to be a running theme here. I also am not losing. 15-25 carbs daily, eating recipes that I find here. Please help!
  11. Johnathan
    I have a general question about Extended Fasting for type II diabetics whose blood sugar is controlled enough to go off meds and did go off their meds (though this is not seeking medical advice for any particular patient). During extended fasting, a full week into said (only taking water and vitamins), after blood sugar levels are expected to drop that first week, would there be any likely reason if blood sugars then raised up during the second week and remained high? Just a theoretical example: blood sugars were 200 before starting extended fasting, then dropped to 100 during the first week and remained there all week, but then raised back up to 150-200 starting with and throughout the second week? Again, this does not pertain to blood sugar fluctuations during the first couple of days but rather in the timeframe mentioned during the second week only, and not being on any medications.
  12. Johnathan
    Don't see responses to the last two weeks of postings/questions, but hopefully they'll return soon.

    I have reduced the fat intake and that seemed to help me pick back up the weight loss. Sometimes you just have to adjust the carbs fat and protein to your body.

    Any diet plans for 'Ethical' vegans on keto?

    Thanks very much

    Hi Team Diet Doctor

    Early this year my father was diagnose with bullous pemphigoid. He was also diagnose with Type 2 diabetes 30 years ago and had minor stroke. He is taking medication for these 3.

    He was also admitted to hospital (3 times - very long story) this year (now discharge). He is skinny but slowly putting on weight. He was taking 40mg/day of prednisolone for the pemphigoid which affected his blood glucose (ranges between 10 to 15). Now it has been reduced to 15mg/day and so far no new blisters. To help control his blood glucose, I reduce rice and noodles significantly. He mainly eats meat, vegetables and fruits. For the past 2 weeks his pre-breakfast readings are ranging between 5 to 8. Twice it has gone below 5 (4.1. and 3.9).

    I need further guidance, for example ... once I checked his reading before dinner was 18.4 (the same day pre breakfast was 4.1 - I reduced the metformin as advised by doctor). I am not sure whether the high reading was due to him exercise 1 1/2 hour before the reading or because he had brown rice (small portion) for lunch or the 15mg prednisolone or reducing the metformin.

    I am also confuse reading about fat and glucose spikes. All the whilst my understanding was type 2 diabetes do not produce enough insulin, now I read there's too much insulin in type 2 diabetes.

    I am wondering what type of support I can get by being a member.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Many thanks.

  23. Vanessa
    Good Morning Diet Doctor,

    My wife has thyroid issue since the age of 18. (Hypothyroid - low dose 0.112mg) She has been having issues with losing belly fat for the last 9 years. She is now 41.
    Does a Ketogenic diet help with resetting for Thyroid Issues? All the literature seems to point to having some carbs to initiate the Thyroid function.
    Looking to help my wife
    Thank you
    Reply: #382
  26. Andre,
    Weight loss (if appropriate) can reduce the need for thyroid hormone (and medications) by a bit, but beyond that a keto diet usually has no noticeable effect on that.

    Best,
    Andreas Eenfeldt

    The meals look great and I am excited about starting this. However, I don't eat pork. Can I use turkey bacon and turkey pepperoni instead and still be low carb?

    Hi, I'm considering joining and have been looking at info on the site. I read you don't have to become a member in order to start the diet as all the info currently on the site is free. That said, I'm looking for something that says, "Start here" or "Do this first" or something similar. Basically, I am looking for some handholding as I start this. Have I missed it in my readings, would that initial breakdown be provided once I join or would I simply just start with recipes and a shopping list? Thanks.

    We have decided to take the 2 week challenge, starting this coming Monday. We are trying to practice proper eating before we actually start this keto diet. I have looked all over the site and have tried to find the 500 recipes, to no avail. What am I doing wrong? So we went ahead and had 3 small beef fried sausages, one poached egg and some broccoli and cauliflower. Are we in the right mindset?

    just started the challenge and for those like me addicted to dairy and eggs it all looks good until i went to "customize", now struggling big time on day 2, (not used to the lower fiber and volume.) my intuition was to just plug in things like spinach, broccoli, more avocado, kale, chard, cabbage, spring mix but the numbers go really bad quickly on paper of course, my intuition also led to runaway type2 from going vegan for a year.

    Hello. I started the keto diet as a free trial. I loved it so much I decided to join the membership. I have how very only lost about 7 lbs since then which to me seems low. I have been diligent in making sure I do not exceed 20 grams carbs per day. I was in full ketosis (dark purple) for about 3 days last week and suddenly the sticks are showing between negative and trace since. Am I doing something wrong or is this a false negative? Please help me to not be discouraged! Nikki

    Are the receipes affordable? I want to transition my whole family to eating Keto but I’m concerned about affordability with 4 kids, my husband and myself. The hard truth is Food like cereal is cheap and bacon every morning isn’t. I’m aware that this is to our health and benefit but I’m truly on a budget and am wondering the average cost per person eating this meal plan.
