An introduction from Dr. Natasha Turner ND to The Hormone Diet approach to Ketosis and Fat Loss...
According to the latest research, about 96 percent of people tend to gain weight back—plus more— with the typical approach of cutting calories/exercising more. Clearly, this does not work and only leads to future weight gain, to say nothing of metabolic damage as thyroid hormones drop and precious metabolically active muscle is lost.
At 46, I have learned that the same weight loss tricks that worked at 30 years old, don’t offer the same results now. So, just recently, I made it my mission to find a solution. My new approach with my clients is based on a philosophy that is simple: when you exercise less, I want to help you to eat less; and when you exercise more, I will guide you on the best food options—as you should eat more. Your dietary habits, how much you move, and how much you exercise are inseparable. I want you to start living each day by asking yourself this question: How much am I going to move today?
Your answer to this question will determine your diet habits for the day – including what you eat when you eat it and how much. You should let go of the mentality of adopting an “eat less, move more” approach as it sets us up for failure. The answer is simple – yet so commonly overlooked – when you move more, you should eat more. When you move less – you should eat less. The days you are sitting at your desk or not exercising, are the days we need to take in less so that our body uses the reserves stored in our body as fuel instead.
How can we eat less?
- Most common – skip the sugar and all starchy carbs like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes.
- Eat one less meal on the days you do not strength train, so three meals instead of four.
- Stop eating by 6 – 7 PM at the latest!
- Drop the most calorie dense food from at least one or two meals – and that is fats! So, when you are moving less, skip the egg yolks, cheese, nuts, avocado – as your body doesn’t need added energy. You will, however, still consume your required protein and two cups of vegetables at each meal. Remember – it is all about getting your body to a ketogenic state – i.e. Fat burning state and we can do this by moving more, eating fewer carbs and sugar, and eating fewer calories overall – but it should never be done by failing to eat the minimum protein we all need to maintain muscle mass (formula is based on your body weight and activity level).
- Add a day or two per week of intermittent fasting (only if you have mastered your protein intake on the other days of the week).
In addition, the key to sticking with this new lifestyle is monitoring your energy, hunger, and cravings so we can adapt your plan to suit your results and how you feel.

This kit includes:
→ Clear Nova Scotia Marine Collagen + C -Mixed Berry Flavour: is recommended for skin, bone and joint support. This fish collagen is produced from the skins of wild, deep-sea ocean fish such as cod, haddock and pollock. Unlike farm-raised fish and other animals, wild-caught fish have no possibility of being exposed to antibiotics for hormones. The hydrolyzed fish collagen peptides used has very specific amino acid compositions with a high concentration of glycine, hydroxyproline and proline. These amino acids are necessary for promoting healthy tissue growth of hair, skin and nails. This collagen is a complex structural protein that helps maintain the strength and flexibility of skin, ligaments, joints, bones, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, gums, eyes, nails and hair. It has been shown to fight aging, heal and regenerate bones and heal wounds. Hydrolyzed collagen can improve skin hydration and reduce the number of micro and deep wrinkles. It also helps to restore bone density in the human body system and helps stimulate growth and bone strengthening.
→ Clear Recovery -Raspberry Flavour: post-exercise nutrition can improve the quality and the rate of recovery after a bout of serious exercise, such as a strength training session, long bike ride or interval cardio session. Signs of poor recovery include fatigue, poor workouts, prolonged muscle soreness, lack of increased strength, and lack of increased muscle mass. Research has shown that nutrition ingested right after working out, and up to two hours later can drastically improve ones recovery time. Clear Medicine has developed Clear Recovery to help fuel your body during your workout and replenish glycogen stores once your done. The result? A stronger, leaner, healthier body.
→ Dream Protein -Creamy French Vanilla Flavour: Dream Protein leads the “whey” with its proprietary Hormone-Free, Ultra-LowTemp™ Whey Protein Isolate. We start with hormone free whey from New Zealand cows that are “Meadow Fed” and not given any rBGH or BST hormones! Dream Protein is made with an Ultra-Low Temp™ process, which is beneficial because the protein is not denatured (damaged) from an extensive heat treatment. This means that you’ll receive all the essential and non-essential amino acids plus naturally occurring immunoglobulins (which are necessary for proper immune function). Dream Protein also contains a soluble fiber (FOS) that has been shown to encourage growth of favorable bacteria which help to strengthen the immune system, assist in digestion of food, as well as, to help promote regularity. Whey protein is an excellent protein choice for individuals of all ages. It provides a number of benefits in areas including sports nutrition, weight management, immune support, bone health and general overall wellness. 720 gram container.
→ Clear Complete Meal Replacement Without Multivitamin -Chocolate Flavour: contains whey protein sourced from New Zealand, which is known for its highly strict dairy processing standards. Guaranteed 100% pure (hormone free), this high-biological–value whey protein concentrate contains a rich array of essential and non-essential amino acids. Whey protein is considered the “gold standard” of protein for serious athletes. If you, however, have a sensitivity to dairy protein or even small amounts of lactose, this is not our best meal replacement for you. In this case, it is better to select from these meal replacements: Clear Vegan-Protein Complete Cleanse (pea-based protein), Paleo Complete DF -Vanilla or Chocolate(pea-based protein). If you are looking for a protein powder versus a meal replacement, your best options are: Clear Pea Protein -Unflavoured or PurePea -Vanilla Flavour. Research suggests that it supports healthy body composition, retention of lean muscle mass, glucose metabolism, satiety, and gastrointestinal health. Its roles in the maintenance of blood pressure and blood lipid levels already within the normal range are also areas of interest. As a rich source of the sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, whey protein can enhance immune function through intracellular conversion to glutathione. Whey protein also delivers high levels of naturally occurring bioactive immunoglobulins that are resistant to peptic digestion. Immunoglobulins from whey have been observed to support intestinal immunity and a healthy response to inflammation. Furthermore, whey protein has displayed lower allergenicity than casein.
→ Clear Solufiber: Dietary fiber is an important part of the daily diet, and many people in Western society do not consume enough. Soluble fiber helps maintain the health of the gastrointestinal system. Fiber's ability to slow gastric emptying helps to increase satiety, which may be helpful for individuals who are trying to reduce energy consumption and lose weight. Soluble fiber is not digestible by enzymes in the gastrointestinal system, but is instead fermented by healthy bacteria in the gut. Soluble fiber intake has been found to delay the rise in glucose levels after a meal and enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been found to lower blood pressure and reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. A low intake of dietary fiber has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Supplemental forms of fiber have been found to be more effective than fiber from the diet. Clear Solufiber contains partially hydrolyzed guar gum derived from a natural source, the endosperm of the cluster bean. Hydrolyzation is a controlled natural process that breaks guar gum down into smaller units, greatly decreasing its viscosity and allowing the particles to dissolve more readily, while maintaining the original fiber content. It is a patented highly soluble form of fiber that has been used in clinical trials and studied in children.
→ Lemon Pepper Dill Seasoning + Other Optional Flavour: Lemon Pepper Dill gives you exactly what it says - a little citrus, a little bite with the black pepper, and a subtle dill kick! This low sodium and flavor-packed seasoning pairs perfectly with seafood & chicken. Want to do a low sodium and low fat dip? Try this seasoning mixed with greek yogurt and voila! An amazing veggie/chip dip that's sure to be a crowd pleaser! Using only the freshest, natural herbs and excluding any extra fillers, Oh My Spice seasoning is a perfect addition to any of your favorite meals!
→ Ketostix: Urinalysis reagent strips to detect the presence of ketones in urine. For in Vitro diagnostic use. Ketostix can be especially useful for those beginning a ketogenic diet because it lets the individual know that their body has adapted to ketosis and have indeed limited their carbohydrate consumption sufficiently to force the body into ketosis, thereby starting the process of burning fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. More advanced ketogenic dieters use the strips to help figure out exactly how many carbohydrates they can eat before they are kicked out of ketosis. It can also help determine how different foods affect one’s ability to stay in ketosis. For example, some people’s bodies can handle sugar alcohols without having trouble staying in ketosis, and Ketostix can help diagnose this.
