About our recipes

All our recipes are low carb, gluten-free and free from artificial sweeteners. They contain nutritional information (per serving) and you can print them easily. You can read our full food policy here: The Diet Doctor food policy. If you have questions regarding our recipes, please see our recipe FAQ page.

Each recipe has a unique colored circle, showing the number of net carbs it contains per serving.1 The colors are based on how strictly low carb they are:

  • Green (ketogenic low carb)
  • Yellow (moderate low carb)
  • Orange (liberal low carb)

This will help you pick the best recipes according to your diet and also help you calculate the intake of carbs.2 Take a look at the examples below.

    This makes logical sense: if something has an effect, doing more of it often has a stronger effect.
