Karen is a recovering addict, and has worked closely over the years with Prof. Tim Noakes to develop the Harmony Eating and Lifestyle Program (HELP), in conjunction with Harmony Addictions Group. HELP is the world’s first inpatient program treating sugar and carbohydrate abuse as an addiction. As a health and lifestyle pioneer, Karen has been interviewed on shows such as Dr Michael Mol and Doctor’s Orders, and has been featured in articles relating to sugar addictions in publications like Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health and Sarie.
Karen’s belief systems are based on the premise of empowering body, mind and spirit with authenticity, balance and mindfulness. She extends these principles to form the foundations of her programs, such as the Sugar Free Revolution, her new book “Sugar Free: 8 Weeks to Freedom from Sugar & Carb Addiction”, as well as into her latest venture: joining forces once again with Prof Tim Noakes to co-host The Old Mutual Health Convention.
A note from Karen:
All the information on my blog is based on my personal experience or the experience of those around me following a similar journey. If you don’t like it here then please feel free to leave quietly.
I am not a dietician nor to I claim to be. I do however work with a Registered Dietician on my 8-week Sugar Free Revolution online program to ensure participants get the very best care.
If you have medical conditions then consult a medical professional. I am very happy to put you in touch with those I work with.
My aim is to live an authentic life and this extends to the way in which I relate to myself and others; what I eat, how I think, feel and behave.
My programs are based on the premise of empowering body, mind and spirit with authenticity, balance and mindfulness being key.
I strive for these principle in my daily life but will always remain very far from perfect.
I am the soon-to-be published author of ‘Sugar Free: 8 weeks to Freedom from Sugar & Carb Addiction’ which I co-authored with Kerry Hammerton and dietician Tamzyn Campbell. Sugar Free will be available 19 February 2015 and you can pre-order a copy here.
In 2011 I founded HELP: Harmony Eating & Lifestyle Program which according to my knowledge is the first inpatient treatment program targeting sugar and carbohydrates as an addiction following a Low Carb, High Fat lifestyle.
The program was initially started in conjunction with the Harmony Addictions Group, Prof Tim Noakes and dietician Rael Koping but we recently decided to split up and pursue other interests within the Low Carb High Fat lifestyle paradigm. My focus being on living an authentic, sugar free life.
In March 2014 I again joined forces with my mentor (and unofficial superhero) Prof Tim Noakes to co-host The First International Low Carb High Fat Health Summit taking place in Cape Town from 20-22 February 2015. To buy tickets please click here.
I started my 8-week online program called The Sugar Free Revolution in 2014 which helps individuals beat their sugar and carb addiction by empowering body, mind and spirit. For more info or to join this fabulous program please click here.
