No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal sets record with more than 80,000 views in 2021

Our teriyaki taste test is our most popular post.

Our site, the No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal, topped 80,000 views in 2021 for the first time in its nine-year history, easily surpassing its previous one-year high of 65,965 views set in 2017.

The number of visitors to the site in 2021 also was a record at 43,500, surpassing the previous high of 34,800 set in 2020.

“The Pandemic has caused people to cook at home more and they’re looking for healthy recipes,” says Journal Founder and Editor John N. Frank. “Our recipe page was by far the most popular item on our site last year with more than 16,000 views, followed by our home page with 11,100 views”

The most popular individual post was once again “Salt-free teriyaki sauce — a taste test of three varieties.”

“People who have dropped salt are looking for flavor alternatives for their cooking. Salt-free teriyaki sauce is a must for anyone trying to do healthier Asian recipes,” Frank explains.

Frank launched the blog in 2013, not long after his first stent was inserted. HE has since survived a second stent as well. More than 234,000 visitors have come to his blog since its founding, with more than 4445,000 views.

No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal hits record annual views with two months to go in 2021

This site, the No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal hit a record number of views for a year, 66,881, with two months still remaining in 2021. Its previous annual high was 65,965 views in 2017. The site is on track to smash through 70,000 views by the end of the year.

The site also has had a record number of visitors in 2021 — 36,588 — compared to its previous annual record of 34,756 in 2020.

The site’s most popular feature is its recipe page, which has been updated with Pandemic recipes for families now eating more at home than ever before.

Site founder and editor John N. Frank

“The Pandemic no doubt has sent people,e looking for healthier recipes and healthier ingredients and they are increasingly finding information about that and more on our site,” says John N. Frank, founder of the site which went live in late 2013 as Frank was recovering from his first heart surgery in 2012.

The site has recorded more than 430,000 views since it began with more than 226,000 total visitors. “It’s gratifying and humbling,” says Frank, who began the site after leaving an earlier site he had founded because of differences about its direction with a former writing partner.

“I wanted our site to be about good eating, even with health restrictions, but my old partner wanted to concentrate on medical information. I’m not a doctor, I’m a home cook who wants to find ways to cut fat, salt and sugar in the foods I love to cook, so that’s what I’ve been doing these past eight years here. I’m so happy to have found an audience that wants to do the same.”

A Record Year for Nosaltnofatnosugar.com Thank You All

We had a record number of visitors to our No Salt No Fat No Sugar Journal in 2020, more than 34,600 people, eclipsing our old record set in 2017.

“Covid and the move to more eating at home sent a lot of people looking for healthier recipes like we provide,” says site Founder and Editor John N. Frank. “While a lot of people were binging on chips and junk food, I’d like to think some realized they need to get the salt, fat and sugar out of their diets as they think more about what they eat every day.”

This site’s recipe page remains its most popular feature.

Frank started the blog in late 2012 after his first angioplasty to open a blocked artery which nearly killed him. He’s since had a second stent inserted in a different artery in 2017.

He has utilized his prior experience as a food journalist to find or modify recipes to get out the excessive salt, bad fats, and high amounts of sugar that many Americans eat every day without realizing what’s in their food.

Frank recently was named a 2020 top executive by Marquis’ Who’s Who in recognition of his career in journalism, his work on this blog, his efforts to start a small theater and his volunteer work with Mended Hearts, a national peer-to-peer support group for those dealing with heart disease.

“I’ve been stuck inside all year like everyone else but I’ve tried to keep busy,” he jokes.
