Diet Doctor

Diet Doctor is a relatively new resource, appearing in the current format in the last year, after starting out in Sweden, in 2011. It’s entered the sphere of dietary nutrition at what I believe is a critical moment for the world. Seriously:

Something is badly wrong. While the prosperity of the world has never been higher, people are suffering. More and more people – the majority in the Western world – are obese or overweight, and a large proportion are on prescription drugs every day for the rest of their lives. Every year new people add to the sad statistics. As we get ever richer as a society our health appears to decline. Why is this?

With that backdrop, it’s clear: there’s a crucial need for accessible, accurate, reliable nutritional dietary information to be delivered through the medium of the internet—the “printing press” of the twenty-first century.

To be effective, resources providing dietary nutritional advice need to:

  • Address popular confusion about nutrition—particularly with respect to the role of carbohydrates and fat in relation to health and disease,
  • Be based on the best understanding of the latest science, without fear or prejudice towards Big Food and Pharma
  • Provide clear how-to guidelines, for people wanting to transition to a healthy lifestyle
  • Incorporate real-world recipes, based on the best nutritional advice
  • Display complete financial transparency, because there is a vital requirement, at this historical juncture, to restore public trust relating to nutrition, food and the role of pharmaceuticals, in relation to health.
