New recipe feature: Full nutrition info, including macronutrient grams and calories

Nutrition_EN

It’s one of our most requested features, and we just launched it today. All our 500+ low-carb and keto recipes at Diet Doctor now show grams of net carbs, fiber, protein and fat per serving, plus calories.

We don’t recommend counting calories on a low-carb or keto diet (here’s why). However, many people still wonder about it, and may be tracking it, and we want to make life simpler for all of our visitors.

The nutritional info is based on the USDA database. Have a look at any recipe or our main recipe page, the info is under the nutrition tab.

    Wow! Fantastic! Thank you so much! I know we are not supposed to count calories but sometimes I just want to know. Especially since I have lately been doing alternate day fasting and allowing myself 500 cals. on the fast days. This was a lot of work. I am very thankful and impressed!

    So are we supposed to be counting “net carbs” and not total carbs when we are calculating our daily 20g ?
    Thank you.

    Hi Nancy!

    Net. :)

    So are we supposed to be counting “net carbs” and not total carbs when we are calculating our daily 20g ?
    Thank you.

  10. There are differences of opinion. Clearly counting total carbs results in an even stricter and possibly more effective diet. But the fiber is not the enemy if you ask me, so I recommend net carbs (20 grams).

    If you want to go even lower than 20 net grams, for the best of both worlds, that's a possibility.

    Best,
    Andreas Eenfeldt

    Thank you very much Peter and Dr. Eenfeldt for your comments on net carbs.

    And thank you so much for providing us with the nutritional breakdown for each recipe. That must have been a tremendous amount of work but it is greatly appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    Nancy,

    I have been doing keto for 4 months. I have lost 7 pounds. I am 56 years old and I get discouraged because I don't lose weight fast like most everyone else. I have at least 25 pounds to get to my goal weight. I drink coffee with heavy cream in the morning. I have leftovers from the night before for lunch and another Diet Dr recipe for dinner. I always have cheese with my meals. I am wondering if I should cut out dairy? Maybe that is why I am not losing weight? I want to stay with this keto lifestyle but am just feeling discouraged. I do feel much better on it as far as my joints go!

    I have been Keto adapted for 3 months and have lost 30 pounds, I am off blood pressure meds, my fasting glucose is averaging mid-80's, and my CPAP is not having to work very hard to control my sleep apnea. I have absolutely worn your recipe pages out to stay in Ketosis and lose the weight - it has worked. The gram info will be really helpful in planning my cooking and grocery shopping for each week.

    However, we are never satisfied :). Now if the Nutrition info was on the recipe printout, it would be perfect. I print them and store in the kitchen for reuse. But don't worry if it is a problem. I can willingly write the grams on the printout by hand.

    Thanks for a great site and a great aid.

    Fantastic! Thank you!

    This is beautiful! I have a question. I notice each recipe has the net carbs in a colored circle at the bottom of each recipe picture. Do the different colors mean different things?

    For some reason the printing of a recipe is no longer compatable with Safari. The ingredients section is left justified and prints as a long thin coloum as opposed to how it appears on the recipe. Very frustrating!!!!
    Can that be changed to accommodate Mac computer printing in Safari

    Thank you.
    Also, looks like Maggie could do with some helpful advice from DD! I think responses to postings could helpfully be more responsive ?

    Hi Jane and Maggie!

    We are really sorry, but we simply don’t yet have the resources to respond to all questions in the comments or via email.

    We do respond to questions about the membership, but for other questions, it would be great if you could help each other in the comment section.

    Fantastic ? Thanks

    Hi Camilla,

    One additional thing that has really helped me is time-restricted eating or intermittent fasting. So for example skipping breakfast and only eating lunch and dinner. Also, I think experimenting with eliminating cheese is worth trying.
