Medical doctors recommending a low-carb or ketogenic diet
"I recommend low-carb and keto diets with and without intermittent fasting to all of my patients who have lifestyle-related chronic conditions, because of the science behind these approaches and their impressive clinical results. I also recommend they visit the Diet Doctor website to find trustworthy information and delicious recipes."

Medical doctors recommending a low-carb or ketogenic diet

"As a reproductive endocrinologist, I have been studying nutrition and fertility for over 15 years. I advise all my patients, both women and men, to adopt a low-carb ketogenic diet both prior to pregnancy to improve their fertility and during pregnancy to improve fetal and maternal health. This way of eating has been shown repeatedly in my practice to improve all measures of health for women and men. We refer all our patients to Diet Doctor which in our opinion is the best online resource for our patients to find all the information, recipes and meal plans they need to be successful."

Medical doctors recommending a low-carb or ketogenic diet

"I recommend a high-fat, low-protein, ultra-low to no-carbohydrate diet with intermittent fasting to my fertility patients. Immunologic dysfunction can contribute to recurrent pregnancy loss and infertility. One of the easiest ways to improve immunologic function is to reduce inflammation throughout the body. The keto diet does this. I use Diet Doctor myself and recommend it to patients as a valuable resource."

Medical doctors recommending a low-carb or ketogenic diet

"Real food - that is low-sugar, high-fiber - works for most of the population, but some patients may need a low-carb diet for best results. For those patients, I am totally for low-carb. I have certainly had many insulin-resistant patients who didn't get better until they went on a low-carb diet. I am not remotely concerned about negative effects of low-carb. I feel that, aside from patients with familial hypercholesterolemia and type 5 hyperlipidemia, a low-carb diet is entirely safe."
