About Martina Slajerova

The KetoDiet Blog Team

Hi, I'm Martina, the creator of the KetoDiet blog, KetoDiet app & cookbooks

I currently live in the UK. I hold a degree in Economics and worked in auditing, but I have always been passionate about nutrition and healthy living. I love food, science, photography and creating new recipes and I am a firm believer in low-carb living and regular exercise. As a science geek, I base my views on valid research and I have first-hand experience of what it is to be on a low-carb diet. Both are reflected on my blog, in my apps and cookbooks.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

The irony was that, like so many other people, I used to follow what I believed to be a healthy, balanced diet. I avoided most fatty foods in fear of clogging my arteries and putting on weight. I based my diet around whole grains and vegetables, and limited my intake of animal products. I did exactly what the general dietary recommendations advised: I exercised more and ate less. Still, nothing worked. Finally, I got tired of dieting all the time, and I was determined to regain my health by following a different approach.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

After we witnessed the incredible benefits of low-carb eating firsthand, my partner and I created KetoDiet, a tracking and planning application with hundreds of low-carb recipes, which is now one of the bestselling apps on the App Store and Google Play. Then, in 2012, I launched the KetoDiet blog, which helps over 2 million monthly visitors follow a whole-foods-based, low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle.

Since 2016, I've authored 5 low-carb & keto books to help people follow a healthy diet and to show them that this way of eating doesn't have to be complicated or boring.

KetoDiet is not just about losing weight at any cost; it's about adopting a healthier lifestyle. My mission is to help you reach your goals, whether it's your dream weight or simply eating healthy food.

Meet Our Recipe Developers

When creating recipes for KetoDiet, our recipe developers and I don't focus just on the carbohydrate content: you won't find any processed foods, unhealthy vegetable oils or artificial sweeteners.

Our recipes are all grain-free, sugar-free and gluten-free. Most of my recipes are paleo-friendly or include paleo-friendly alternatives. We always opt for grass-fed beef and butter, raw hormone-free dairy and healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food. I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
