I thought the keto challenge was brilliant.

I had actually been on keto for the previous seven weeks, five of which were in China, therefore a bit more difficult.

The recipes are delicious, easy to shop for and make planning the week’s meals so easy. If I had known about Diet Doctor and the keto challenge nine weeks ago it would have made my foray into keto so much simpler and more straightforward. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore keto.

Thanks for this great website and the keto challenge.


This is a great challenge. It has helped me to understand metabolism and the relationship of carbs, fats and protein. I have struggled the last ten years with weight gain because of a thyroidectomy. I have always been carb resistant, so the thyroidectomy, plus my age — 71 — really put on weight. I am going to continue and become a member.

I would like to know how the fat, protein, carb percentages change after you reach your weight-loss goal.

The two free weeks have motivated me and produced a 9-pound (4-kg) loss even though I ate a few strawberries a few days. My hot flashes have finally disappeared! I feel better.

And I loved all the meals except the fish curry. It was so so. I eased on the curry as I’m very sensitive to spicy foods. I cannot eat hot peppers.

I am continuing to lose another 10-15 pounds (5-7 kg).

Thank you,

I am 70 years old and live in both Vermont and Florida. After reading and listening to how the diet works I used some of the recipes you provided in the challenge but also used my own because I have lots of yummy veggies available in my garden. I lost six pounds (3 kg) which is great because that’s all I needed to loose. Keeping hydrated has been my biggest challenge. My son has been following the diet since February and has lost over 65 pounds (29 kg) so far. I truly believe it is saving his life! He has a 2-year old and a 5-month old. Because of this diet he will enjoy them a lot more and live to see them grow. Thank you!


I have really enjoyed the 2-week challenge! I lost 5 lbs (2 kg) in the first week but stayed the same on the second week, which I will put down to a family party (alcohol) and I think I ate a bit too much cheese and I made the mistake of thinking almonds were great so I ate too many of them… So for week three, I will be eating less of nuts and cheese. The recipes are fantastic and really tasty and more importantly filling.
