Hello and welcome to Mother Nature's Diet!

What is 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. We want to restore ocean fish stocks, reduce atmospheric pollution and stop the desertification of grasslands. In the long term, Mother Nature's Diet is a holistic lifestyle designed to find ways to feed us sustainably, helping to promote good health for all – humans, rich and poor, animals farmed and wild, the land, the oceans, the air and all living things.

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.

If you want more energy, and freedom from sugar-lows and the afternoon slump, then MND just might be for you.

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. 


Our Founder

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.
