Low-Carb Diet Coaching

Our Low-Carb Diet Coaching can help you demystify among all the conflicting dietary advice to choose the foods that best support you ~ no matter your individual goals or needs.  Whether you desire weight loss, better digestion and assimilation, or improved energy and vitality ~ there is a diet that supports you best.  

God ~ or Nature ~ has provided humans with an abundance of natural foods and resources with which to thrive.  You also have a built in inner guidance system that will steer you to the best choices ~ among those foods that Nature has provided ~ that is most balancing to your particular condition and constitution.    

While some people are good self-darters, and can read a book or blog and quickly begin to implement changes on their own, others may feel overwhelmed, especially by all the conflicting advice.  That's where working with a coach comes in.  

Low-Carb Diet Coaching  can help you learn to choose the best natural foods, and preparation techniques that are also in harmony with Nature's own seasons and rhythms ~ for your unique needs and circumstances.

Despite advancements in technology, your body is still hard wired to perform at its peak when you eat similar foods to what your early ancestors ate.  It's in your DNA.  Studies have been around for many decades that indicate that diets high in sugars, ~ especially those from highly refined and processed carbohydrates with a high glycemic load ~ are the primary cause of excess fat and weight gain ~ as our body's have not really adapted physiologically  to the high levels of carbohydrate consumption people now consume.

 In a nut shell, there is much more evidence (that sadly has often been overlooked, or intentionally dismissed) that indicates it is excess carbohydrate consumption, including excesses of the so-called healthy carbs like whole grains and grain products that causes spikes in insulin, potentially leading to insulin resistance, excessive weight gain that is difficult to lose, hypo or hyperglycemia (diabetes), and inflammation that is the root of  many other health issues.  

There never was solid evidence that saturated fat was the true villain it's been made out to be.  Studies indicated that red meat can lead to cancer or other health issues were conducted on highly processed meats.  Livestock that is traditionally raised entirely on pasture, in integrated farming systems, is among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.

Powerful lobby groups and massive propaganda campaigns vilified the very foods our ancestors thrived on for hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands of years prior to the Industrial and even Agricultural Revolutions.

Contrarily, unconsciously eating modern processed, synthetic, and refined foods while sitting long hours in front of a computer, or texting on the phone is a recipe for dis-ease, pain, stiffness,  loss of mobility, and premature aging.  Not to mention weight gain.

Don and I have experienced this first hand.  Despite how healthy our 'produce-rich, whole-foods, plant-based macrobiotic diet' appeared on paper, when plugged into a nutritional analysis site like Cronometer.com, we experienced many set backs and declining health after following that approach for over five years.  

Kind of a bummer.  It was quite an investment of our time, energy, and finances to have made at a time in our lives ~ late 40s to mid 50s ~ where health issues can take much longer to correct.  

We were eating that way to correct health issues we believed were caused by the meat and fat of our previous paleo diet, and finally now understand that it wasn't the meat and fat.  It was the level of 'healthy' carbohydrates we were still consuming, in the form of a lot of sweet potatoes, winter squashes, and fruits, coupled with a lack of the understanding we now have of the roles of fat, especially fats from animal products, protein and glucose all have on blood sugar balance.

If you decide to sign up for Low-Carb Diet Coaching, we can help spare you the costly mistakes we made, and help you get your desired results, while streamlining meal preparation to make this lifestyle easy to  maintain long-term.

It takes a LONG time to unwind from the FAT phobia we have all been indoctrinated into since the creation of the food pyramid that had carbohydrates at the bottom.  Flip that pyramid upside down, and you'll have a better idea of what is actually healthiest to eat to support your health.

These are the top books I recommend for those wanting to learn more, and understand some of the evidence that has been around for a long time, and why we have all been so misled.  The first two are an enjoyable, fast read.  Gary Taubes' books are very enlightening about the politics of health, and why we get fat.

With Low-Carb Diet Coaching, you learn to choose foods and lifestyle practices that will be most restorative to your particular needs.  

Your current condition, symptoms, and body type (more yin/sensitive versus yang/hardy); the region you live, how active or inactive you are, the season, and your current health and life goals are all considered when determining your needs.  More importantly, we pay attention to what you most crave, and look for patterns of symptoms you have post meals.

The Low-Carb Diet Coaching process  will help you discover how much, and what types of carbohydrates you best tolerate, and which types are best avoided, including those that most commonly cause food sensitivities, digestive distress, and a greater insulin spike.

What is unique about our Low-Carb Diet Coaching process is that we utilize the principles of Chinese medicine and macrobiotics, combined  with European-based traditions.  

We can help you determine the nature of your condition, and which food choices and cooking methods will help you restore balance, recover vitality, and are most aligned with your true nature; the region you live, and even your ancestry.

The primary focus of Low-Carb Diet Coaching is to help simplify meal time, choosing the best quality and ideally most seasonally and locally available foods, with the right combination and types of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that will help you feel your best, and are within your budget.

You can also check out our healthy low-carb snacks, and recipes,  here on the website, and in The Trust Your True Nature Diet Plan e-book.

Low-Carb Diet Coaching is part of the Strong Spirit Woman Health/Life Coaching, however we specifically target improving your physical health, and achieving your health and fitness goals, including fat and weight loss, weight maintenance, or as adjunct support with overcoming more serious health issues.

Upon completing a certification course in plant-based nutrition  with T.Colin Campbell offered through e-Cornell, and  to be a macrobiotic counselor with David at Macrobiotics America, while simultaneously  writing several books about eating a healthy, plant-based, macrobiotic diet, we changed our way of eating.

After five plus years of eating an entirely plant-based vegan diet, filled with lots and lots of dark leafy greens, and a variety of land and sea vegetables, beans, and whole grains, we just were not feeling all that great.  We did some more research, and returned to an updated version of the paleo diet we had been eating prior to going vegan.

I invested a lot of my life force into sustaining that lifestyle!  And I'm still changing course.  Why?  Because I'm not doing this just for profit.  I want to help myself and others feel their best, despite the fallout after changing course.

I've written about our health history and process in my books, so I won't bore you here.  Suffice it to say, we learned many lessons along the way.  

Sometimes when we experience setbacks or challenges, we can be all too quick to throw out the baby with the bath water.  Yet all good things take time.  

We realize now that we could have made some simple tweaks to our diet while paleo that could have made all the difference, however we fell for the anti-meat propaganda that has been foisted upon us all now for decades.  We trusted many of the prominent plant-based doctors and advocates, and believed we needed to remove all animal products to turn around potentially pre-cancerous symptoms we were both experiencing.

"Years ago I became interested in Macrobiotics as a healthy way of eating. I read several books. It all looked complicated at the time and I let the idea go. I started acupuncture treatment at Barefoot Acupuncture and saw that Tracy and Don supported (Ancestral) Macrobiotics. ...I had a (Macrobiotic) Health consult with Tracy. Her knowledge and approach gave me an new view and I was able to implement preparing, cooking and eating in a Macrobiotic style. Ongoing help and tips from Tracy has made the process much easier. Tracy's support has been so helpful to me, allowing me to enjoy this new way of eating. Tracy and Don's books on Macrobiotic eating have been a great guide. Tracy took a subject that could seem complicated and overwhelming and made it simpler and easier to understand and implement." ~ LHG, Phoenix, AZ

Our Low-Carb Diet Coaching emphasizes the most nutrient-dense, whole, natural foods including appropriate quality animal proteins and fats, supplemented with seasonal greens, vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts, seeds, and good quality plant oils and fats.  

During a Low-Carb Diet Coaching session, we will help you implement the aspects of our recommended foods that will make the most sense for you, based on your personal preferences, whether or not you spend much time in the kitchen, and your food budget.

Our meal suggestions are simple, and sure to satisfy!

The only constant in life is change.  Your body, moods, and energy also fluctuate continually throughout the day, and throughout the year.  The cycles of the moon and seasonal changes impact our moods and energy.  Some are more sensitive to these daily, monthly, and seasonal fluctuations than others.  

Cravings  change to match the season.  When it is hot out, you probably crave more cool, big, juicy fruit, and raw foods.  When it is cold out, you may desire more warming foods and spices, and longer cooking techniques, such as slow-cooked stews and soups.  You are naturally attracted to what will provide balance, without giving it much thought.  

However, if you are eating foods that are not harmonized with the season, and your particular needs, such as a lot of cold, raw fruit and salads during the cold season, you will be operating in discord to what is more natural for that season.  

Many people feel their best when they eat foods similar to their own ancestry.  Knowing the primary staples of your ancestors ~ which for most of us included fish and animal foods ~ may help shape your food choices.  

Whether you are more inclined to beef or pork, or fish and seafood, for example, may have a lot to do with the region your forebears once lived, and the primary food staples of that region. You have genetic predisposition, and have been physiologically adapted to certain foods based on ancestral and cultural heritage.  

This is the core teachings of Chinese medicine, (European) macrobiotic principles, and our low-carb diet coaching philosophy.  It's part physiology, and part paying homage to the unbroken chain of life from whence you come!

 Reconnecting to your roots can provide a profound healing on an emotional and spiritual level. 

It's a relatively recent phenomena to be able to consume foods out of season, shipped in from around the world ~ and it's happening at the expense of valuable resources, including oil while increasing pollution.  

While many vegans speak out against animal cruelty, they fail to pay attention to the impact of their own diet when relying on imported foods.

Eating foods out of season, that are not from our local or similar bioregion can incrementally weaken our immune system over time.  It weakens the environment as well. 

You will learn through Low-Carb Diet Coaching how to make more appropriate choices so you maintain vitality, and  healthy immunity throughout the year.

My Strong Spirit Woman  Coaching Process helps you become more in tune with your inner guidance system, which will help you improve all areas of your life. 

Once you are at a healthy base point, and understand the basics of healthy eating and a healthy diet, your intuitive cravings should guide you to the best choices.  

You can finally feel relieved as you liberate yourself from all the dietary dogma, and feel confident in knowing that there is no better expert for you then YOU!

"I enjoyed my (low-carb diet) coaching session with Tracy.  It was exactly what I wanted. Instead of just emailing me with a standard list of recommendations, Tracy made suggestions that seemed easy to implement, customized to my needs. It was exactly what I wanted." ~Anna D, Tempe, AZ

During our Low-Carb Diet Coaching session, we may also suggest swapping out chemical-laden household cleaners for more natural cleaning and personal body care products, and other lifestyle activities that will also improve your overall sense of well-being.

These dish cleaning detergents, pods, or liquid soap are made with very clean, pure ingredients, smell fresh, and work great.  They come with rave reviews.  Puracy liquid soap is sulfate-free, and made in Texas.  They are all pretty affordable, and very worth the price.

Most house cleaning products, and personal body care products are laden with chemicals, petroleum, dyes, and other synthetic elements that are harmful for health.  Some have been studied and shown to be immuno-suppressors.

Inhaling their fumes, and using chemical-laden products on your body or scalp on a regular basis can be impacting your health in many ways you may not suspect, including making you more susceptible to allergies.

Even synthetic dryer sheets, or aluminum-containing deodorants are not natural, and best avoided.
