Best of 2015: I quit


We published close to 500 blog posts in 2015. During the upcoming days we’ll remember the top ten posts, based on number of pageviews. Here’s #10:

I Quit

After nine proud years as a family physician, I quit in March of last year. Why? Because trying to help one person at a time was no longer efficient enough.


What has happened since I quit? I’m continuing to devote all of my energy to the Diet Doctor company and our purpose of empowering people to revolutionize their health. We’re now seven employees and many freelancers.

Fortunately we’ve been able to grow the organization while staying forever 100% independent of industry or products as well as completely ad free. Instead we’re fully funded by our optional membership (giving access to bonus material). We’re growing fast and the future looks enormously exciting, thanks to the generous support from all our members.

This year we aim to become by far the most trustworthy, simple and inspirational low-carb site in the world. Why? To empower as many people as possible to revolutionize their health.

Do you have any suggestions for how we could improve in 2016, or what more you’d most like to see? Please leave a comment.

Do I miss it?

Do I miss working with patients? Yes I do. And I still hope to return to doing that in another, much more effective way, while still managing to run the Diet Doctor organization. But it’s not likely to happen this year. Too many important things need to be done first.

    Bravo, Dr Eenfeldt, for focusing on a few things at a time and getting them done well. It's the right way to do it. Many people try to attack too many things at once, and the result becomes disappointing. Doing a few things to 100% is much better and effective than doing too many things to only 1%. Yours is a sustainable and productive strategy. As a paying member on this website, I support the good work your team does. Please continue with the laser focus on the few critical things that are most important.

    Thank you so much for the work you are doing here.
    I am a member because I totally believe in what you are doing.
    I am 74, have lost 45 pounds and have 25 more I would like to lose.
    I believe that what you are doing is serving more people a month than you could ever hope to see in your office in a lifetime.
    May God continue to bless your work and may you have a blessed and prosperous new year.

    Thank for making such a difference in so many lives. My suggestion would be to have some of your presentations available as podcasts so everyone could be learning on the go. After beginning this lifestyle, I, like many others, have developed an intense thirst for knowledge on the subject.

    Dear Doctor Eenfeldt: Thank you for the sacrifices you make. I'm reading your book right now; it's wonderful because it's logically written and you cover so much detailed material. Other books I've read don't cover so much so well. I've read extensively about metabolic syndrome for years, but if anyone asked me, I would (and will) recommend your book.
    I just found an article at that is, like your book and articles, quite a change from the decades of abnormal thinking about what is healthy. I'm appending the link because the article confirms your work by explaining the dangers of low cholesterol. Thanks for what you do so well.
    Happy New Year! Be healthy.

    Didn't know about your book, but will find and buy it. I've been a registered nurse since 1982 and it is horrible how diabetes and other preventable diseases are destroying lives! Thank God for your voice and others like you.
