If your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight or improve your health, you’ve come to the right place.
Throughout January, we’re posting our most popular, most inspirational content — so that you start losing weight in a healthy way now.
After a challenging year, you may be feeling a bit low or unmotivated. We’re here to cheer you on, lift your spirits, and guide you every step of the way.
We’ve created a new page, titled: “New Year, new way of life.” There, you’ll find the DD articles, guides, meal plans, and member columns that our users read the most during 2020.
We’ve also compiled our most popular success stories, featuring testimonials from those who’ve found a better way of life through low carb and keto.
First, meet Kristin, whose success story was our #1 most-read success story of 2020. After finding Diet Doctor back in 2016, Kristin was able to lose weight and overcome issues related to hypothyroidism and depression.
Then, there’s Crystal, whose success story was the third most read. With low carb, she lost 86 pounds (39 kilos) — and while she’s in her 40s, she says she now feels like she’s in her 20s!
For even more inspiration, we also asked our members and a few from the DD team. Here’s how they went after their health goals in the past, what they want to achieve this year, and what they’re hoping for you as a Diet Doctor user in 2021.
Diet Doctor members on staying inspired & motivated in 2021
“What motivates me? Everything about keto. From the very beginning, I knew it was for me and I have never thought of quitting, I’m a keto for life gal.” — Lenore, member
“My health-related goals for the New Year are fairly straightforward. [I’d like to] recognize the inherent “ups and downs” in behavior modification and persevere, understanding that mistakes & relapses help me get closer, not farther from my goals of better health.” — Renelle, member
“I plan to remain on keto as I feel so much better, not just physically, but mentally as well. I’m adding in some exercise to help with my back pain and I know I’ll be able to keep that up too.” — Lydia, member
“[My] health goal is to continue to eat healthy food and exercise daily and follow the superb advice from DD.” — Rose, member
“I am looking forward to helping my husband free himself from T2D. I really want him to join me in enjoying a healthy and active retirement — and having a proper laugh again!” — Julie, member
Diet Doctor team on what they aim to achieve this year
“Cut back on the cheese, nuts, and alcohol — and the pure whipping cream hot chocolate — that have all become more common as my Covid comforts. And get back into a regular weight-lifting and exercise routine. Outdoors, not in the gym.” — Anne Mullens, Diet Doctor team member, Senior writer
“Getting to bed by 10 pm is my #1 resolution this year. Since I seem to wake at 6:30 am, regardless, I need to reduce the too-frequent late nights.” — Jenni Calihan, Diet Doctor team member, Senior writer
“Cutting down on the snacking (nuts and 90% dark chocolate) that I’ve picked up this year and getting back on track with walking.” — Amanda Åkesson, Diet Doctor team member, Editor
“The main motivation for me is how good I feel when I am hitting all my sleep, exercise, stress, nature, and nutrition goals. I know I feel amazing and that is the best motivation!” — Dr. Bret Scher, Diet Doctor team member, Medical director
Our best advice for you
“Keep things simple. No need for it to be difficult. Believe keto will be the best thing you could ever do for your health and the results will prove it.” — Lenore, member
“To all of our Diet Doctor members, make choices that will make for a better tomorrow for yourself and your family. We are here to support you in being your best!” — Crystal Pullen, Diet Doctor team member, Moderator
“Treat your body well and care for it. Give it time to ‘heal’ and adapt to your new way of living. Then, you will love the skin you’re in.” — Rose, member
“Sometimes, I have to restart my good intentions a number of times before they really stick. It’s okay if it takes a couple of tries to really get the hang of something you want to change.” — Adele Hite, Diet Doctor team member, Senior writer
“[Take it] one day at a time. Be kind and true to yourself. Every ‘failure’ is an opportunity to learn and succeed.” — Marie, member
“Thank you for being a Diet Doctor member during this very challenging year. I know how much you want to reach your health-related goals in 2021. We’ll be here to help you whenever you need us. Enjoy your journey to better health, taking it one day at a time and celebrating small victories along the way. You’ve got this!” — Franziska Spritzler, Diet Doctor team member, Senior writer
