About Mother Nature’s Diet

Mother Nature’s Diet is a healthy lifestyle. It’s a way of living, including dietary guidelines, to help you have plenty of energy, avoid ill health and resist the signs of ageing as best as possible. Mother Nature’s Diet (or MND as followers like to call it) is designed to help you feel great, look your best and enjoy your life in every way.


MND is a truly holistic healthy lifestyle, we look at the best way to eat and to live for good health and abundant energy, but we also connect human nutrition with the natural world, with Mother Nature and agriculture. We are interested in the best way to create a sustainable future, where we all eat for good health, but where we also improve animal welfare and topsoil management.

Mother Nature’s Diet is for people who care, people who want the best for themselves, and people who are prepared to put in a little effort to get permanent lasting results.

Mother Nature’s Diet is all about taking personal responsibility, and working on yourself to get the best out of your life, in every way. There is certainly an element of personal development involved, this lifestyle is about being the best version of you that you can be. Whether you are currently aged 30 or 70, if you are the kind of person who refuses to accept that turning 40 means “it’s all downhill from here” and if you believe that we can be slim and healthy and full of energy in our 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, then the Mother Nature’s Diet way of living might be the lifestyle you have been searching for.

If you think the right way to live is to eat fresh whole foods, rather than searching for answers in the form of supplements, pills and powders, then Mother Nature’s Diet will resonate with you. If you want to lose that excess weight for good, no more fad diets, no more yo-yo weight loss, then Mother Nature’s Diet may be the answer you have been looking for.

If you are prepared to get outside every day for some fresh air, take long walks at the weekends and switch off that TV from time to time, then you’ll feel right at home living the MND way.

The goal of Mother Nature’s Diet is:

To inspire and help as many people as possible to find the best natural way to achieve supreme good health and abundant energy.

  • Mother Nature’s Diet will help you lose weight – but it is far more than ‘just another weight loss plan’
  • Mother Nature’s Diet will help you to get fit – but it is far more than ‘just another home workout program’
  • Mother Nature’s Diet will help you to sculpt a fit, healthy, strong, sexy body – but it is far more than ‘just another 6-pack abs program’
  • Mother Nature’s Diet will help you to be healthy and avoid diseases – but it is far more than ‘just another superfoods and anti-oxidants recipe book’

The Mother Nature’s Diet definition of supreme good health and abundant energy is this:

  • Free from pain, disease, immobility and any obvious illness
  • Abundant vibrant energy
  • Resisting the signs of premature aging – maintain youthful looks and energy levels
  • A good level of basic fitness, strength and flexibility
  • As a minimum, a balance of moderate physical ability across a range of functions
  • Attractiveness – clear skin, not too fat, not too thin, bright healthy looks, a fit sexy body
  • Natural virile healthy sexual function and high libido
  • Longevity – the ability to live a long, healthy life, free from disease and disability
  • Age well – maintaining excellent levels of physical and mental ability well into old age
  • Happiness

What is Mother Nature’s Diet not?

Mother Nature’s Diet is not a fad diet! We use the word diet in it’s correct meaning…not as a ‘temporary way of eating to lose some excess weight’! This is a long term lifestyle, not a quick fix fad!

MND is not just a weight loss program, it’s not just a quest for a 6-pack and it’s not a ‘muscle building program’. MND is not a sports nutrition plan, to help you lift heavier, cycle faster or run for greater distances, however, it will help you to be healthy on the inside, which should aid you in whatever sports or exercise goals you pursue.

MND is designed to help you be the best, healthiest version of you possible, healthy on the inside, looking good from the outside, to help you achieve whatever life goals you have.

MND is about living longer – we want to add years to your life, and life to your years.

It is our goal that Mother Nature’s Diet is the answer to that mess.

  • We don’t sell supplements
  • There is no advertising on our websites

No gimmicks, just common sense.

About our Founder, Karl Whitfield

Mother Nature’s Diet was started by Karl Whitfield in 2011, borne out of a combination of his passion for healthy living, his own personal health transformation and his frustration with the endless confusion and complexity that pervades the worlds of weight loss, health and well being.

Karl fought with excess weight for over 20 years, yo-yo dieting in and out of obesity for two decades. He smoked for 20 years, was a heavy drinker for 26 years and suffered nasal conditions and skin conditions that had him taking prescription medications for 17 years.


Karl turned his poor health around, lost 101 pounds of fat (that’s 46 kilos, or 7 stone 3), quit smoking and drinking, cleaned up his life, came off his medications, cured his own health problems and became passionately obsessed with all things health and nutrition. He got fit, ran a dozen marathons, became a qualified Personal Trainer and read over 840 books and research papers on all aspects of health, disease prevention, nutrition, ageing and longevity.

In all that reading, it was Karl’s frustration at the mass of seemingly-contradictory opinions on almost every aspect of health and fitness, that led him to develop the 12 Core Principles of Mother Nature’s Diet.

Most of the blog entries on this site were written by Karl.

If you feel so inclined, you can read about Karl’s personal health and life transformation here on his Karl’s Story page.

    Hi, I just want to say I appreciate the effort you made to share your experience with other people. I live a life style similar to yours, let´s say I am at 80% of what you do … I began three months ago and results were incredible. I have to say I never gave thought to healthy living things before instead I followed the general conventions of society. Certain things are hard for me where I live (Argentina) because it is not easy to find organic products for example but in general it is possible to follow a healthy lifestyle. Cheers!

    Thank you for MND. I’ve only done 3 days and feel much better already. It’s very simple too. I thought I was already eating healthily but couldn’t lose any weight. The ‘no grains’ makes sense and is definitely making a difference. I only have to think protein - fish, meat, eggs, fruit and veg, nuts and seeds. I drink plenty of water now.There’s always plenty of food and I’m never hungry either.

    July 29, 2021
    • That is wonderful Kath…I am delighted for you 🙂

      Thanks for letting me know how you are getting on!
