Last week I was on the Low Carb Cruise May 6-13 2012 with Dr. Jayson Carlton and Mira Carlton C.N. authors of Naked Calories. It was so much fun getting to know this dynamic couple because we share the same passion for nutrition and health. They are a fascinating couple because they spent 6 years traveling around the world studying indigenous cultures and seeing what nutrition habits helped people have vibrant health. A main reason they embarked on this journey was that Mira had Osteoporosis at age 30 and due to a low fat diet and stressful career.
The main emphasis of their book is that micro-nutrient depletion is the cause of modern condiditions like heart disease and cancer. While traveling they saw that people who followed traditional diets and lived far from cities had the best health. They found that micro-nutrients are depleted by many factors such as overused soil, life stress, excessive exercise and the western diet that is full of sugar, grains, alcohol, and factory fats. They cover how cooking can deplete nutrients and how eating with the seasons will maximize availability of vitamins and minerals. Another cool concept from the book is the idea of a Nutravore, where they want all the diet philosophies to come together to accept a food plan that incorporates micro-nutrient rich foods above all else. I highly recommend reading this book so you can fine tune your nutrition and improve your health by eating a diet rich in micro-nutrients which will help you lose weight and have more energy in a sustainable way.

I will be giving away their book and some samples of their wonderful tasting non-compete multi- vitamins called Nutrience.
