4 Must Read Low Carb Diet Blogs


There are a huge number of diet blogs out there, but low carb diet blogs seem to be under-represented.

So here’s a run down of the top 4 low carb blogs – if you haven’t heard of them before, you’ve been missing out on some great information and entertainment!

1. Get Scientific with the Diet Doctor

Andreas Eenfeldt

All too often the science behind a diet gets forgotten and we’re left with anecdotal evidence, rumors and tall (or wide) tales. It is therefore with great pleasure I introduce Andreas Eenfeldt, MD.

Dr. Eenfeldt is a Swedish doctor specialising in family medicine and his blog is all about his journey to discover how to be as healthy as possible using natural methods.

It turns out that what he found matches the low carb diet approach. You can watch a fantastic lecture he gave on one of my previous blog posts: 5 Essential Videos For Low Carb Dieters

In case you’re wondering what he is reading in the photo, it is “Matrevolutionen” (“Food Revolution”), authored by the good doctor himself. Unfortunately I couldn’t find an English version of the book.

2. Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb

One of the most popular low carb blogs out there, Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb is the brainchild of Jimmy Moore.

To quote the man directly: “[I] lost triple digit weight on low-carb and I’m now livin’ la vida low-carb!”

The frequency of which this blog is updated is astounding, especially considering the depth and breadth of information that is covered in each post.

Jimmy brings you a lot more than a blog – with regular podcasts that are jam packed with up-to-the-minute science, interviews and opinion pieces, you’re sure to be able to keep yourself entertained for hours (or months if you’ve just discovered this blog and are trawling through the archives!)

If all that isn’t enough for you, he has also authored two books: LIVIN' LA VIDA LOW-CARB: My Journey From Flabby Fat to Sensationally Skinny in One Year and 21 Life Lessons From Livin' La Vida Low-Carb

3. Go Primal with Mark’s Daily Apple

This regularly updated blog, authored by Mark Sisson who also wrote “The Primal Blueprint“, is tailored towards those on primal diets.

For those of you unfamiliar with primal diets, they are focused on the consumption of organic foods which are uncooked and unprocessed.

Low carbohydrate diets tend to naturally lean towards the primal way of eating, so there is a lot of useful crossover information that can be found on this blog for primal and low carb dieters alike.

4. Hold the Toast

This regularly updated blog has been going since 1999 – yes, over a decade (and then some). This leads me to two conclusions:

Dana Carpender knows a thing or two about low carb diets and she is dedicated to running her blog and believes in the diet.

The low carb topics she covers are varied; from ADHD to recipes and viagra (if that doesn’t stir some interest in her blog, I’m not sure what will!)

With all these years of being on low carb diets, she’s has amassed quite a collection of recipes, and they’re all available in her books such as 300 15-Minute Low-Carb Recipes and 500 More Low-Carb Recipes – you can see all her books on her Author Page.

Honorable Mentions

“Always give them more than they expect” (if that quote doesn’t exist, you heard it here first folks). With that in mind, here are some more blogs that are worthy of a mention. A number of them are written by people on the journey to losing weight and act as journals, head over and give them some love!

Have I missed somebody that deserves a mention? Leave a comment and a link :)

  1. The Best recipes – She can make anything low carb, She has a quirky attitude that can make you chuckle. Her recipes range from dessert – to snacks. All easy and tasty :)

    • Her food definitely looks delicious, although her most recent recipe contains pasta, not particularly low carb!

  2. Forgot Lyle McDonald.


    • Thanks for the heads up – I wasn’t aware of this blog

      • scotty
  3. I regularly read Tom Naughton’s blog. Even though it’s a link to a movie he did (which is well worth your time), he posts regularly to his blog, too. He’s a funny guy with a sound message.


    I read Paul Jaminet and Robb Wolf:


    But my latest obsession is the damage that wheat is doing to the body, so I frequent Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis on Facebook and on his two blogs daily:


    I have many more than this in my RSS reader, but these are the ones I seek out every time I log in. :)

    • Thanks for such a great list – I’m sure other people will find them useful. I may do a separate blog post to promote these guys as well

      • scotty
  4. How could I forget Denise Minger?? She is brilliant at dissecting the numbers behind studies. She doesn’t post often, but when she does, it’s a doozy of a post and worth settling in with a hot cup of coffee:


    In addition, I subbed to your blog now, too, and I already regularly read the four you mentioned. I’m all about educating myself on nutrition this year. It’s working – I’m down nearly 40 lbs since January.

    • Thanks for subscribing! The blog is very new and I’ll no doubt make a few mistakes as things start out (so basically, bear with me!)

      It’s great to have your support :)

  5. Long time fan of **each** of these (and even though they are all low carb, or relatively so, they each bring something wonderful to the ‘table’.

    Well, dietdoctor is relatively new, but I’ve been there reading his English-language blog since pretty much the beginning.

    Nice blog – I’m subscribing!

  6. Hey, thanks so much for the shout out!
