Your most frequently asked questions about the Mother Nature’s Diet healthy lifestyle.


Grains and carbs!
Why do you recommend not eating starchy processed carbs, such as bread, rice and pasta?


More on grains and carbs:
If I have to avoid grains, what about other starchy carbs, the ones that don’t contain gluten, the popular ‘good choices’ – such as couscous, organic oats, sourdough bread, white potatoes, oat groats, quinoa and einkorn?


Low-carb or not?
You say Mother Nature’s Diet isn’t a low carb diet, you just avoid grains and processed starchy carbs. So what carbs are best then?


What about legumes?
Living the MND way, can I eat legumes - beans, pulses and sweetcorn?


Eating the MND way, how do you get so many servings of fruit and vegetables in every day? Eating the MND way every day - 17-a-day average!

    Hello, I think its a great site .I’m just wondering, how often do you eat meat ( in a week ) ? I heard that eating too much protein causes problem with kidneys . What do you eat on a day without proteins? Thank you for answer :-))

  2. Hi Dorota, thanks for your question. I eat meat every day, often several times per day, I believe this is our natural diet…but it must be ‘good clean meat’ - grass-fed, pasture-raised, outdoor-reared, organic meat.
    I ate meat every day for about a year, then had my blood tested to ensure good liver and kidney function - please see the results at
    As you can see, after that time, I was in excellent health, inside and out, so it seems absolutely fine. Keep an eye on this site, as soon as my free eBook is ready for download, you will be able to read much more and I will explain in detail why I believe we should eat meat and fish and eggs every day.
    Thanks again, do let me know if you have any other questions. Karl.

    Hi what’s the best diet for someone suffering from hyperthyroidism? It looks like I need to cut out gluten, iodine, wheat, dairy, sugar & salt & now go for mainly organic stuff & grass fed animals. Help!!

    • Well that would all be a great healthy diet, for sure.

      Do you have hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism?

      Oily fish is good, green vegetables, yes avoid excess iodine, fresh berries.

      What advice have you had from your doctor?
