“The first life style change to actually work for me”


Over 485,000 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 fantastic stories from people who’ve taken the challenge:


My husband and myself both did the 2-week low carb challenge. Both have lost 13 pounds and are continuing with the low carb lifestyle. Once ketosis kicked in, we both found our appetites diminished substantially. Now it’s a case of continuing and finding recipes we both enjoy and looking forward to more weight loss.


The low-carb challenge is the first lifestyle change to actually work for me. I am a 52-year old female from Minnesota, USA and I have tried everything to lose this stubborn weight (80 pounds).

Diet Doctor gave me the daily encouragement and delicious recipes to help me start this journey. During the two-week challenge I lost over seven pounds which is fabulous motivation. Being a good cook made portion control my hardest issue. I quit eating soda, chips, candy, and most processed foods years ago. Therefore, losing weight is a true challenge.

At first, it was hard to pass on the rice, potatoes, and pasta, but with Diet Doctors inspiration…I am doing it! Today, I feel better. I am less bloated with lots of energy. I can’t wait to see me in a year. Thank you very much, Diet Doctor.


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I think that says it all, lol. I am sooooo impressed with KETO! I am 60 yrs old and in the past have found nothing that would help me lose this menopause weight. I started gaining weight when I turned 50 and wasn’t able to get it off. Through this diet plan or should I say, new way of life and eating for me, I have shed about 4-5 pounds.

I just finished my two weeks and am starting and will continue to do keto forever, lol. I just love it. I have learned so many things. Some great, great recipes and information. I am so very glad that I did this.

Thank you again so very much.


Hello Andreas Eenfeldt – Diet Doctor!

My name is Derek Smith and I live in Prince Edward County in Ontario, Canada.

I was placed on the keto diet by my new family doctor who suggested it as a possible means of reducing inflammation in my body. My doctor noted that most of my recent illnesses, and some older afflictions, were caused as a result of excessive inflammation.

He asked if I was willing to try out this diet; I said that I was, as I’m not a total stranger to diets having been on the Elimination (Exclusion) Diet for two years after a significant bout of Reiter’s Syndrome in 2000.

I went on keto on Sunday, July 15 and although my two weeks are past, I’m still on it and have no particular end date in sight!

During this time, I lost 6 lbs and that is quite a bit for my 5’9” height and medium build. I’ve never in my life been anywhere near overweight, but I had been struggling to get down to a weight that I felt good about. I now have and I’m delighted with the results. I’m not sure how much more weight I want to lose as today I’m the lightest (158 lbs) I’ve been in years. However, and I emphasize this, I feel good with lots of energy and increased mobility that comes with being at optimum weight!

Throughout the two weeks, I never wavered from the diet, although I didn’t follow the recipes. Being a single man, I cannot be bothered with overly involved recipes, but rather I followed my own microwave cooking skills learned when on the Elimination Diet.

My immediate plan is to continue with keto and maybe ever attempt a super recipe dish sometime soon.

Thanks for all your guidance!


Good morning, I am an 64 year old female from Mississauaga, Canada. I followed th 2-week challenge and found it much less difficult than I expected. The recipes were easy to follow and very tasty, making the challenge great.

As I am a type 2 diabetic, I am hopeful that by continuing with this LCHF program, I will be able to stop my meds. In the 2 weeks, I have lost 12lbs as well. I have joined the monthly program so that I can enjoy the videos and additional recipes.

Thank you for making this such a positive experience.
