My Book


Clear skin, healthy hair and maintaining weight loss really isn’t hard – but if you told me that ten years ago, I’d probably slap you.

Throughout my early teens and into my early twenties, I struggled with severe acne, hair that would break and refuse to grow, headaches, imbalanced hormones, mood swings and a general sense of un-wellness. I thought I ate healthy, but my skin continued to breakout and my weight continued to fluctuate.

The problem was, I ate what most people consider a really healthy diet. I woke up and made myself a big fruit smoothie for breakfast. I had a turkey sandwich on whole grain bread for lunch. I made lean meats, veggies and more whole grains for dinner. I avoided fat, I never ate red meat, and I wouldn’t even think of going near fermented foods or organ meats.

The problem with this diet, despite the fact that most would consider it healthy, is it’s anything but. This type of diet spikes the blood sugar and sets you up for some pretty significant nutrient deficiencies along with imbalanced gut flora. The body needs fat. It needs red meat. It needs the probiotics found in fermented food, especially if you suffer from acne.

This way of eating has been forgotten. Our ancestors didn’t have acne, hair growth and weight loss problems. They had clear skin, healthy hair and lean, strong bodies. They weren’t prone to getting sick. And they sure as hell didn’t avoid meat or fat, in fact they ate a lot of it.

This book will teach you how to eat to:

  • clear acne
  • reduce or eliminate cellulite
  • prevent or reduce wrinkles
  • maintain soft, supple skin
  • strengthen and grow hair
  • maintain healthy, hydrated hair
  • reduce or eliminate acne scars
  • maintain a healthy body weight without dieting
  • how to make delicious, ancestral recipes
  • find out why the typical modern diet is designed to keep us tired, fat and sick

And the good news is that I priced this book so everyone can afford it. Everyone should be able to afford the truth about nutrition and what it actually takes to be healthy. Get the book HERE!



  1. Hi Dani,

    Is this book available besides the kindle version? Thanks.

    • dani stout Reply

      You can also read it on your computer or phone, you don’t need a Kindle to read it. But no hardcover yet!

  2. Suggestion: You should create a PDF version of your book and post it for sale. I’m not one to read long texts on the computer, but would definitely purchase a PDF to print and read 🙂

  3. Are you Paleo based? The name Ancestral Nutrition and the type of diet principles you describe sound like Paleo. Its the best way of eating in my opinion, all natural nothing processed.

  4. How do I purchase a hard copy of your book? Amazon is only giving me a kindle version to buy but I would like a physical book. Many thanks.

      Unfortunately there is no hard copy, just Kindle, computer and phone version.

    Hi Dani, I’m Dani too! I began a Paleo diet a while ago and got so frustrated with having to find substitutions I gave up. I also never felt satisfied without some type of grain. Does your plan allow for some whole grains?

    • dani stout Reply

      Dani’s rule! Yes, the healthiest grain (believe it or not) is white rice. My plan does include it and explains why it’s the healthiest grain and is a safe starch.

  6. What are your thoughts on Weston Price Foundation and Matt Stone’s opinion of a paleo-based sort of diet?

    • dani stout Reply

      Love WAPF, I’m a member. I can’t remember Matt’s stance, I haven’t read his site in a really long time. Do you have a link to an article where he discusses it?

  7. I have been looking at your site and found some great stuff. I want to make sure that you know that it is well received. I wondered if you have worked on a no sugar plan. I am juvenile onset diabetic. I have always what I eat but that does not help when meals have a ton of sugar. Then there are the ones that have artificial sugars that are bad for you also. I have cooked for most of my life and I am always looking to learn more. Thanks, Cat

      I don’t include sugar in any of my meal plans. Of course majority of foods contain some sugar (potatoes, fruit, etc) but I never include added sugar or artificial substitutes.

  8. You should read the China Study, the most comprehensive study on nutrition ever conducted to date and it says the plant based diet is the optimal diet for humans. Cavemen died in their early adulthood, yes? Was it because of diseases and food-borne illnesses? I’m sorry but you said the body “needs” red meat. Look around you, they don’t.

      1) I have read The China Study.
      2) Populations studied still ate meat.
      3) Much of the data was falsified to fit the authors pre-made conclusions, a thorough analysis of the data can be found here:
      4) Cavemen did not die due to diseases. In fact we know that ancestral populations had incredibly robust health and that the introduction of meat into the human diet allowed us to grow bigger brains and evolve as a species. Cavemen died to things like broken bones, cuts that got infected, the elements, etc.
      5) I didn’t say the body needs red meat. I said grass-fed red meat is incredibly healthy – and it is.
