Behind the Scenes at Team Diet Doctor

What’s happening behind the scenes at Team Diet Doctor? Here are three things you may find interesting about us!

We sometimes spend day AND night together!

Once a month Team Diet Doctor all travel to Karlstad, Sweden, and work hard together for three days. The unusual thing is this: most of us spend the nights together too!

This probably sounds worse than it is as our office is a large apartment with a few separate bedrooms where most of us sleep, but Simon (our Creative Director) sleeps in the video studio, Johan (our Head of Technology) sleeps in the living room, and I sleep in the conference room!

Crazy? Perhaps, but it’s true.

We’re not all Swedes

Another thing you may not know about Team Diet Doctor is that not all of us are from Sweden and we live in different cities.

Most of us live in Sweden though. Kristin and Andreas live in Karlstad, Inger lives in Linköping, Simon lives in Jönköping, and Johan and Alex lives in Stockholm.

But me? I live in Bergen, Norway, by far the nicest place of the five. 😉

We spend three days a month deciding what to do next!

For three days every month we all go to Karlstad to discuss the question of questions: What would you, our dear members and visitors, love that we did next?

To answer this question we do different things. For example, we read your feedback (on posts, guides, recipes, success stories and the get-started challenge), we speak to you directly on the phone, at conferences, and at the Low-Carb Cruise, we ask those of you who are members weekly questions on the membership site, we look at our website traffic to see what you click the most and least, and we think about what we would love to make that you might love too.

On Monday the 23rd of May it’s time for Karlstad once again. Check out what we’re going to do below:


(Everyone in the team does this)

1. Write one sentence that summarizes what Diet Doctor current does for Janet and Ken (the two people we keep in mind when thinking about what to do next)
