The keto diet: “I have not been hungry and cravings are gone”

ChallengeOver 285,000 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 amazing stories from the people who’ve taken the challenge:


Hello Andreas,

I recently completed the two-week challenge with Diet Doctor. I was referred to your site a couple of years ago by a friend but forgot about it.

My interest in keto stems from the “mental clarity” that so many people speak of after they have committed to the diet. Weight loss was a secondary concern for me. I am happy to say that I have felt significantly better over all after two weeks.

I am a young guy just 24, and I have been battling anxiety and depression for a few years. I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in a long time and that I have noticed a general stabilization in my mood that has lowered my anxiety and increased my energy. My depression also seems to have faded somewhat and I have also begun to experience that “mental clarity” that others have spoken of. I have really enjoyed the videos on your site have found some other really great resources there.

I am motivated to stick with LCHF and see where it will take me! I am hoping that I continue to experience the benefits that I have discovered this far.

Thanks and keep up the amazing work!

PS. I lost 6 pounds (3 kg) in the first 2 weeks.

Finding the fun

Kids having fun in car on a road trip“It’s just one day, and my kids are going to have candy if they want it!” The commenter went on to tell me how irrational I was for suggesting a cute pencil and eraser set for children instead of candy for a holiday. The message she sent me was that she refused to spoil the holiday for her children by denying them candy. It reminded me of comments I had heard before from others. Once a lady said to me, “How can I enjoy a movie if I can’t have popcorn?!” And a man once said to me, “You cannot take away my beer! It’s football season, and there is no way you’re gonna ruin my fun!”I used to feel that way. I used to believe the unhealthy lies that marketers and food manufacturers want us to believe. We see people smiling on television as they drink beverages together; commercials show parents bonding with kids over breakfast cereal; and we see in images that Friday nights are made better with friends all reaching for a slice of pizza dripping with cheese. Advertisements for special holiday foods are abundant, and even when there is no holiday, food advertisements and commercials nearly always have some element of happiness in them. Marketers want you to know they put the happy in the Happy Meal, and they can help you put the fabulous feast on your table fast for only $19.99 at the drive-thru.We had been a keto family for nearly two years when we went on a brief weekend vacation to the mountains. Although I had gone into a store to purchase bottled water, I got sidetracked by a display just inside the door—doughnuts! The children’s favorite brand was stacked in a colorful configuration. My husband and I used to take our children to that doughnut shop to buy doughnuts hot and fresh. Those were such fun times when the kids were little! I started to reach for a box, and then I caught myself. We didn’t eat those any more. Continue Reading →


The history and future of cancer

3d illustration of cell under microscopeCancer has been recognized as a disease since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Ancient manuscripts from the seventeenth century BC describe a “bulging mass in the breast” – believed to be the first description of breast cancer. The Greek historian Herodotus, writing around 440 BC describes Atossa, the queen of Persia who suffered from an illness likely to be inflammatory breast cancer. In a thousand year old gravesite in Peru, mummified remains show a bone tumor.So cancer dates back to antiquity, but it was likely very rare, given the shorter life expectancy of the time. But the cause was unknown, mostly blamed on bad gods. Continue Reading →
