Low Carb Great for Treating Type 2 Diabetes


Both patients and doctors find that a low-carb diet can be very helpful for type 2 diabetics. It doesn’t cause a big spike in glucose after meals and it helps achieve weight loss.

Here’s another new article about it, where a doctor even says ‘If [low carb] were a drug, companies would be running large trials to get it licensed.’

Diet, Health and an Epidemic of Misinformation

Cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra speaks up on things that others keep quiet about. In this presentation he’s on fire – taking on the shenanigans of Big Food, Big Pharma, and the gullibility and (sometimes) ineptitude of modern health care.

The result of all this is a situation where people get sick from the food they are recommended (or the food that is available), and then they are prescribed way to many medications and they are exposed to way to many medical procedures. The result? Poor health, tons of side effects and a bankrupted healthcare system.

The solution? It’s not going to be easy. But it starts with exposing the problems, the bias and the corruption. Sometimes sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Watch a part of the presentation above (transcript). The full presentation is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

Salad Niçoise

A legendary salad originated from Nice on the French riviera. In our low-carb version we’ve substituted the traditional potatoes for turnips and they work wonders with the tuna, fresh vegetables and salty dressing.

John’s progress

John experienced amazing benefits on a low-carb high-fat diet already when he started in August. As more time has passed things just keep getting better! Here’s an update to his previously sent-in success story:

The email

Good afternoon, Dr. Andreas,

I started LCHF last August and quickly shared my story with you. It has such an amazing effect on me. I thought you might like a small update.

I’ve since had three diabetes tests which nicely show the effects of LCHF on diabetes. The first test was taken the day after I started, with a reading of 87 mmol/mol, then 37 mmol/mol three months later and finally 32 mmol/mol three months after that. I’ve attached an image showing the results.

I’ve also attached a progress photo, which I didn’t really have when I contacted you last. In the first image I’m wearing a 5XL tee shirt, the last mage is a 2XL.

At my last diabetic check the nurse was very interested in my results and how I achieved them, apparently it’s rare to see such a drop. So I explained the Diet Doctor methodology to her and pointed her at your website. I’m rather hoping she’ll pass it on to her other patients.

The mental clarity it’s given me has directly led to a promotion at work, the physical change has reversed my type 2 diabetes and reduced my weight by 70 lbs (31 kg) and I’m happier than I’ve been in my adult life.
Thank you again for your amazing site, it has transformed my life. The mental clarity it’s given me has directly led to a promotion at work, the physical change has reversed my type 2 diabetes and reduced my weight by 70 lbs (31 kg) and I’m happier than I’ve been in my adult life.

Thanks to you and all the team,


Congratulations John – I’m very glad to hear that LCHF works so fantastically for you!
