The keto challenge: “I want to shout it from the rooftops!”


Over 780,000 people have signed up for our free two-week keto low-carb challenge. You’ll get free guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists and troubleshooting tips – everything you need to succeed on a keto diet.

Here are new inspirational stories from people who’ve taken the challenge:


The keto challenge makes me feel high on life. It is like a best seller and you want to tell everyone about the gift you can give yourself.

Weight loss is certainly what made me originally try it but honestly, it gives you so much more. The support from the Facebook group and the web site is amazing. What was shocking to me was that I struggled with my weight for most of my 69 years, however doing the keto challenge helped me master so many of my past self destructive behaviour patterns and mindset. I now feel weight loss is only one small part of the overall healthy mindset that I am now enjoying doing keto.

I feel the DD web site is like a buried treasure and I want to shout it from the rooftops but we all know people have to be ready and have an open mind. In the information provided in the many videos it demonstrates a message to treat yourself with kindness, it weighs a lot less than the guilt we often carry.

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and from what I can tell the DD web site is the best kept secret that I love to share.


Hi! My name is Bernadette Fish and my husband Mike and I completed the keto challenge.

In three weeks, he lost 16 pounds (7 kilos)! So he is now doing low carb as am I. I lost 10 pounds (4.5 kilos). The biggest obstacle I had was the “no bread”. I LOVE bread! I am going to make the keto breads soon.

My husband’s biggest obstacle was looking at the plate and thinking he needed more than realizing how full he really was. As a nurse, I was skeptical about the “fats diet” as we call keto. Now I am a firm believer and have given so many families, friends, co-workers your website. You make it so easy to follow.

My husband and I both have increased energy. My total cholesterol has decreased 39 points as well as my LDL! This is totally due to this healthy lifestyle improvement. As far as side effects: my husband did not have any. I had low energy for one week and occasionally fight with leg cramps which I take magnesium supplements for.

Again, thank you!


I thought the information your site provided was thorough and encouraging. It helped me to deal with the changes that switching to a low carb diet has on the body.

I have clearer thinking and more energy throughout the day. I feel less bloated and less hungry between meals than before. The meal plans were simple and easy to follow, and the food charts were great to help you understand the keto friendlies from the keto unfriendlies.

I am a 50-year-old male in Hamilton, ON Canada. I have moderate daily activity in my work, but exercise randomly from time to time.

Thank you for the challenge, and the free service to a healthier lifestyle.

Hi there,

I am impressed. I did not think this was feasible, or that I would be so inspired and capable! I used to consume over 300 grams of carbs every day, and still wonder why I was hungry and unsatisfied. At first, I overshot the mark for protein I needed to eat every day but I have brought it down too.

Great program for living, I feel a twinge of accomplishment already and its only been two weeks (and 8 pounds (4 kilos)). Living an awesome life here in Cody, Wyoming!

Thank you,
Gera A. Feist

My husband and I have had great success with this diet. I have lost 7 pounds (3 kilos) and my husband has lost 15 pounds (7 kilos). Nice and slow and what we love the most is we are keeping the weight off.

We love the recipes and are starting to really notice a big change in our cravings. We usually only eat twice a day now with maybe a small snack. I would also like to comment on how great your website is and very easy to find what you want and informative it is.
