The TYTN Low-Carb Lifestyle ~ Unleash Your Inner Carnivore and Restore Your Health is NOW AVAILABLE in paperback from Amazon for only $8.99!
The paperback version is in black and white, and does not include any of the food photos. Because I would have to charge over $30 for full color printing, I took them out.
I added the photos back to both the Kindle and e-book versions, both of which have a higher value, yet a lower price! Fancy that!
For a mere $5+ donation, this excellent e-book, with color photos, can be yours!
Several of our clients have read and adopted our plan with excellent results! Reports of increased energy and weight loss are typical comments shared by those who implement our flexible, low-carb diet plan.
The Trust Your True Nature (TYTN) Low-Carb Lifestyle is based on the traditional foods consumed by humans for thousands of years, prior to the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions.
It is an outline for a healthy diet, but can be modified according to one's personal needs and health goals. The book features many super simple meal suggestions and recipes that are quick to prepare, delicious and satisfying.
I also share a bit of our own health journey as we experimented with the entire spectrum of dietary styles, most recently a very produce-rich, plant-based, and higher protein macrobiotic diet.
While this is a low-carb diet plan, it is not based on rigid rules of what you should or should not consume, nor is it a precise formulaic approach.
I do not give specific meal plans, nor make strict recommendations of the total amount of macronutrients ~ proteins, fats, and carbs ~ that each person should eat, as each person has different needs.
It's about helping you learn to eat more instinctually, and let your body guide you to your most optimal food selections.
Instead, I share my own experiences, how to customize according to your needs, and what to expect.
We believe learning to Trust Your True Nature is a more empowering approach, after all, don't you want to become more in control of your health destiny? Wouldn't it be nice to have an instinctual knowing to guide you, rather than relying on so-called expert opinions?
We are hard-wired to know what we need to support our health. All animals are, and we are human animals. We have been equipped with sensory organs that can guide us towards the right foods and life situations. All we need to do is get our mind out of the way, and let our body be the guide!
Often, what the so-called experts tell you is misleading, reductionistic, or simply not backed by the actual evidence that has existed for several decades, if not longer, but kept from the mainstream public.
The TYTN Low-Carb Lifestyle is intended for the larger audience of people desiring to improve their health, while still unwinding from mainstream ideologies.
Eating in a manner that we are actually intended to eat will help us maintain the integrity of our teeth, bones, vision, vitality and reproductive health, while helping us live free of dis-ease ~ the level of health we are actually meant to experience. We are here because our ancestors ate these foods, as these foods support fertility.
The Trust Your True Nature (TYTN) plan supports longevity. Living a long, good quality life, as free from dependency of Western pharmaceuticals and invasive surgeries as possible!
It is only by consuming what is most suitable for our physiology that our full capacity for health and vitality will blossom.
The TYTN Low-Carb Lifestyle includes animal foods as primary staple food choices.
Animal foods provide important nutrients, like iron, zinc, selenium, choline, and many B vitamins that can easily become deficient for long term vegans. They are in a more bio-available form, and easier to assimilate. (I list a few common symptoms of deficiency here.)
For many years, I believed the many advocates of vegan and vegetarian diets claiming that other than having Vitamin B12 levels checked, and getting adequate sun exposure, you can easily meet your needs from a well planned vegan diet.
However, whole grains, whole or refined grain products, beans and legumes, and even nuts, seeds, and many greens and vegetables contain phytic acids, and other 'anti-nutrients' that block absorption of many important minerals, causing subtle, low-level deficiencies which can show up as significant symptoms over time.
Based on our own experiences and recent research, we no longer recommend a vegan diet for anyone long-term. Nor do we recommend having plant-based heavy diets, as they lead to nutritional deficiencies for most people over time.
The insulin effect on the body from consuming excess carbohydrates ~ including so-called 'healthy' carbs, like grains, pastas, potatoes, and even excess fruits and vegetables ~ are a more likely source for obesity, diabetes, and many other of our 'diseases of civilization.'

In The TYTN Low-Carb Lifestyle, you can also learn how to customize your diet to best suit your needs, such as:
After five+ years eating what I thought was a super nutrient-dense diet, I found myself prematurely aging, with dry skin, and ongoing loss of motivation and fatigue.
I rationalized these symptoms away, preferring to stick to the belief that eating animals was bad for our health. I figured I live in a dry climate, so my skin is dry. I am working hard, so I'm tired.
I learned never to doubt my own true nature, and the messages my body was sending me through my various symptoms, including ongoing phlegm congestion, horrible allergies, tendonitis that never healed, and lots of twitchy joint pain, to name a few.
Most startling is that I had a difficult time gaining muscle mass, and losing body fat while eating a low-fat diet!
Here is a look at the changes I made in only a few months of eating a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. I have chronicled my journey and show more pictures of my progress in my LivingYourTrueNature blog.
