Her passion lies in identifying the deep-seated interest in the relationship between people’s self-belief and their addictions and assisting them in empowering themselves in body, mind and spirit.

Karen is the author of the bestselling book ‘Sugar Free: 8 weeks to freedom from sugar and carb addiction’ which was published by Jonathan Ball Publishers in February 2015. The success of HELP and her background in food addiction inspired her to initiate the inaugural Low Carb High Fat Experts Summit in Cape Town, in 2015. The vonvention sought to bring healthy eating habits to the forefront of global nutrition. “It’s her unfailing enthusiasm and profound optimism for the future in the face of logic that makes her such a special individual!” says Prof. Noakes, when asked about what she brings to the party. “She was the star of the convention. Her courage to stand-up for her insights into sugar addiction, despite criticism, is what gave the convention its initial impetus.” www.thesugarfreerevolution.wordpress.com

Sugar Free 8 Weeks to Freedom from Sugar and Carb Addiction

Are you a sugar addict? Do you crave sweet treats, bread, pasta and sauce-laden food? Do you experience lethargy and mood swings as a result of blood glucose spikes and dips? Does your weight seesaw unmanageably? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, your health is at risk. Where fat used to be the enemy, scientists now point to the huge amount of sugar we consume as making us unhealthy. Sugar Free is packed with recent scientific research and nutritional advice to help you understand addiction to sugar and carbohydrates. It provides eight weeks of meal plans, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, by nutritionist Emily Macguire, and includes journal exercises to help you break free from the mental, physical and emotional traps of old eating patterns.
