Andreas Eenfeldt is a Swedish doctor specialising in Low Carbohydrate, High Fat (sometimes keto) dietary advice.

Life and work[edit]

Eenfeldt originally worked as a family physician. In 2007 he started a Swedish website called kostdoktorn.se that became the country’s largest health blog.[1] In 2011 he started an English version, DietDoctor.com, and in 2015 stopped working as a physician to devote himself to the site full time. The website is the largest low-carb website in the world and employs 14 staff with 200, 000 visits a day.[2]

In 2011 Eenfeldt wrote a book Low Carb High Fat Food Revolution, which became a Swedish bestseller and has been translated into eight languages.[3]

Controversial tactics[edit]

Eenfeldt's tactics[specify], along with those of his colleagues from Sweden, have been analysed in a critical academic paper by Mark Elam and Andreas Gunnarsson.[4]
