Carb Free Dieting The Right Way


Being both mac-addicted and caffeine addicted (although I’m only on decaf at the moment), I spend a lot of time in cafes. And when I’m there, in between musings and actual writing, I tend to, um, well, okay I tend to eavesdrop. Who knows where inspiration might strike from, right?

Anyway, I was playing with my poached eggs and avocado last week and pretending to work when I overheard one of the waiters make the following comment to a customer –

“I’ve been on a carb-free diet, I really need to lose some weight”

I kept writing. Not that interesting. Until I heard the following snippet –

“Yeah, all I’ve been eating is like salad, and corn, and tuna, and rice crackers

Um, firstly that’s not carb-free, and secondly, are you trying to kill yourself?! Now I’m not really one who likes to impose her views on random strangers (especially when they’re involved in my food preparation), but I figure I can let loose on you, being that you chose to come here and all.

Carb-Free Dieting: Five Key Rules

1. Know Your Carbs

What comes to mind when you think of carbs? Pasta, bread, rice, maybe some mashed potatoes? You’d be right – those are all forms of starchy carbohydrate. Other starchy carbs include rice, noodles, pumpkin, and all forms of processed grain foods. But did you know that all grain products including whole-grain foods and typical dieters foods such as wheat crackers and corn thins or rice cakes are also starchy carbs? And – get this – starchy carbs are just one type of this massive food group. All fruits, all vegetables, all soft drinks and juices, and definitely all baked goods, sweets and chocolates fall into the carb family. Yep, even the greenest, most nutritious vegetables.

2. Be Smart About Starch

With that in mind, can you see how it can be really easy to get things wrong on a carb-free diet? In actuality, going carb-free is a terrible idea for both health and weight loss. Going starch-free, or low-carb is the key, but you’ve gotta be smart about your carb choices. Keep the vegies – especially the green ones. But lay off the cereals, the grains (in all forms, yes, even gluten-free products), the fruit (unless it’s berries for their high antioxidant value), the juices and sodas, the cakes, cookies and sweets, and then you’ll truly be on your way to consistent weight loss, improved digestion, and a massive health and energy spike.

3. Cover Your Energy Needs

You’re not going to lean up eating tuna, salad and the occasional cracker. Nor will you be very good company. But you might just stand a chance if you consider giving your body some fuel for energy and a speedy metabolism. Not that there’s anything wrong with salad (tuna, with it’s high mercury levels, is another story), but it’s not very satisfying, is it? A smart low-carb dieter eats plenty of animal protein with each meal, lots of smart fats like coconut oil, omega-3’s, avocado, and extra-virgin olive oil, and they load up on the green veg. They supplement with raw nuts and seeds, some organic full-fat dairy, and the occasional piece of dark chocolate.

4. Losing Weight

Cutting back the starch is only one part of the equation. Mind you it is a pretty important part. After all, grains have only been farmed for around 10,000 years, and it takes the human genes that much time just to evolve by a mere one percent. So it’s no wonder our bodies haven’t quite figured out what to do with the stuff, and end up storing it as fat. Couple that with the fact that most carbs, such as fruits, are only seasonal in nature, and it just plain makes sense that we shouldn’t be indulging all year round. So what you should eat if weight loss is your goal? Well, the above meal-plan sounds a little more interesting than tuna and salad, doesn’t it?! And believe you me, it’s a great start for improved health and a taut, trim belly. This is because of the focus on quality proteins and fats.

5. Optimal Nutrition

The final part of the equation is nutrition. If you’re at all serious about your health, and if boundless energy appeals to you, then you’ll be very interested in what I’m about to say. And that is this – low-fat, low-cal, low-carb (low-taste!), such as the typical dieters meal of tuna and salad, is not only rubbish for weight loss, it’s virtually devoid of nutrients. I mean, c’mon – we’re talking tinned and toxic fish, no-doubt anemic salad, and a non-digestible grain product. Of course you could spice that meal up a little on both the nutrient and health front. This is done easily just by adding organic leafy greens, some oil and/or avocado, and replace the tuna for wild salmon or free-range chicken. But in my experience those who are on the low-carb bandwagon without fully understanding the right way to do it tend to go for convenience – packaged foods, sandwich meats or tinned protein, and supermarket or food court salads.

If this is you, or if you’ve been thinking about going low-carb but not sure where to start, then now could be the time to implement change and start to seriously transform your body. Of course, as you now appreciate, the right way to do carb-free takes more time and maybe even costs a little more, but it’s a helluva lot better than starving yourself for a desired outcome that never comes. Choose quality, choose variety, and choose the foods that nature intended for you, and your body will thank you.

Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”



Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,


And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,



Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.


With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –


Starting January 18th!


The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –


For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:



All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.


Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
