Our mission is to inform the general public about the evidence from high quality research done in the past 2 decades (not data which were manipulated by Pharmaceutical companies for the purpose of promoting sales of their drugs). The inspiration to start this website was dietdoctor.com run by Dr Andreas Eenfeldt from Sweden. My interest in weight loss diets started after reading an article by Gary Taubes who described the obesity epidemic beautifully and pointed out things like HDL-C is an indicator of carbohydrate content in one's diet. Then I realized that the majority of health care professionals are still obsessed with low-fat diet and fearful of saturated fat in the diet. Incidentally, my own total cholesterol and LDL-C level were also above upper limit of normal, so I tried low-carb diet and followed my lipid profile every 3 months. We cannot check LDL particle size, so I checked Apo-B and Apo-A out of my own pocket (not reimbursed by National Health Insurance). Despite high saturated fat intake (of course no rice, no toast, no bakery), my TC/HDL ratio declined in each follow-up. I also advised some of my patients to reduce carbohydrate in their diet because ADA has already added LCD as an alternative to LFD for weight control in type 2 DM and prediabetes (Metabolic syndrome). Their TG levels also dropped and HDL-C went up in subsequent follow-ups. Then I watched lectures given by LCD experts (on Youtube as well as from DVDs bought from American Society of Bariatric Physicians website) and found out even microalbuminuria in diabetic nephropathy could be reversed after low-carb diet. I personally think this diet has enormous potential for improving a wide range of diseases, so I want to share my experience with those who prefer non-pharmacologic approaches to poly-pharmacy practises.
