Hi my names Karen and I have been in the fitness industry for over 30 years. I am a Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor and a Martial Artist. I am also 55 years old and menopausal. I have struggled with my weight all my life and have tried every diet there is, much to my bodies determent.  I still carry a few pounds more than I would like to but I am human, I embrace my body, I love life, I am fit, healthy and strong. I take no medication, suffer no joint pains, I have strong bones and I embrace every day of my life. I would love you to join me to relight your fire.

The Science

As we age our metabolism can slow down. Perhaps we do not have enough time, we feel tired, work takes over and we find ourselves not being as active as we once were. We naturally start to loss muscle mass and our fat cells are distributed in more noticeable areas. Our bodies change as we age and so should our workouts.

Metabolism is actually a very complicated process in which our bodies convert food to energy, converts food to building blocks and the elimination of waste. It is a chemical reaction within the cells of your body.

The recipes are designed to be low in sugar, not fat. The negative effects on our bodies of Eating Refined Sugars and processed foods.

  • Blood Pressure fluctuations - Sugar causes glucose levels  to spike and drop.
  • Weight Gain - Well YEAH. Build up of fat in the liver leading to weight Gain as well as the added calories.
  • Bad Skin - Sugar breaks down the collagen which leads to skin ageing and wrinkles
  • Low energy levels
  • Depression
  • mood swings - this is when your levels drop after eating sugar
  • Main cause of chronic diseases
  • Cancer - High sugar intake leads to elevated levels of insulin and unregulated cell multiplication in cancerous tissues
  • Diabetes type 2
  • Dementia
  • Infertility
  • Pancreas - When you eat, your pancreas pumps out insulin. But if you’re eating way too much sugar and your body stops responding properly to insulin, your pancreas starts pumping out even more insulin. Eventually, your overworked pancreas will break down and your blood sugar levels will rise, setting you up for type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
  • Heart - the extra insulin in your bloodstream can affect your arteries.
  • Inflammation through out the body - Chronic Inflammation, caused by sugar intake, can lead to a higher risk of cancer.
  • Fatty Liver - Your Liver becomes resistant to Insulin.
  • Weakened Immune System -
  • Tooth Decay - Bacteria that causes tooth decay Love sugar.
  • Brain Function - The brain releases a chemical called dopamine (a feel-good chemical) this is what gives you the craving.
  • Joints - Studies indicate that the effects of eating too much sugar can lead to rheumatoid arthritis
  • Kidneys - The kidneys filter the blood sugar, If sugar levels are too high, then it lets it our in your urine.
  • Sexual Health - Chronically high levels of sugar in the blood stream can make men impotent.

We all know that we are eating too much sugar and that it isn't good for us. Yet you’re probably still overdoing it: We are all eating way more than the recommended 6 teaspoons for women and 9 teaspoons for men. and that's not from the natural sources in foods like milk or fruits.

The foods that we all know about are sweets, sugary drinks, baked foods, and sweetened dairy. But, sugar is everywhere, even places that you do not suspect it doesn't have to be sweet for instance, some savoury foods such as breads, tomato sauce, in fact most sauces, protein bars, dressings in salads. Even harder to spot are the sugars on labels as they do not want to tell you that there is sugar in this product, so they will list it as a number or fool you with a name,  such as sucrose, palm sugar, corn syrup, agave nectar, or cane juice  to name a few.

Quite frankly, every cell in our body is affected by sugar with very serious affects.

KAREN has been in the fitness industry for over 30 years and has seen and tried every fad diet possible. Much to the detriment of her body. Fed up with all the conflicting advice being given everywhere, she decided to research recipes that made sense to her and how her body felt. She was an obese child but managed to hold off the weight through error and lots and lots of exercise. Weight started to pile on when a family member had a near fatal accident and her stress levels and adrenal glands were working overtime. Not enjoying or knowing her own body pushed her to research deeper into healthier living and wellness. Nearly every book, online course, snippet, research that she read covered SUGAR and FAT and that fat was not necessarily the villain as once told but was sugar. Karen is a keen martial artist holding a Black Belt, She is a qualified Pilates instructor, Pilates Barre, Boxing Instructor, Holds Circuit classes and is currently studying Peri-Menopause, Pelvic Floor Health and wants to continue no to do Meno Strength qualification.

“I am not a nutritionist or Dietician, but even I was lost with all the marketing of this is good, this is bad, this is that, it left my head spinning thinking what on earth could I eat then?.”
