What people say about the course

An important step on my healing journey

Jana, London

I wanted to find a natural way to heal and continue staying healthy. Therefore, transitioning to a whole food plant based diet has been absolutely essential. It has been a gradual process over the last 5 or so years and I still have a little way to go. However, courses like Eat Well Live Well are important steps on that journey. It reaffirmed the crucial food & health connection and it also gave me some invaluable cooking tips and simple yet delicious and healthy recipes! I only wish the course was running for longer!

Happy with health changes

by Sharon Edmunds, Worthing

“I found Karen’s course inspiring. I loved learning so much about how food affects our bodies and just how easy it is to make tasty and exciting food. From doing the course I have lost 1 1⁄2 stone in weight and have reduced my blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It’s also reversed the early signs of diabetic retinopathy (an eye condition) so I am very happy.”

Positive changes dropped my cholesterol

Julie Mc

I went to one of Karen’s Eat Well Live Well courses earlier this year which was such a treat and for me a life-changer. After the first couple of weeks I changed my diet. I have high cholesterol and what I was learning on the course made me realise I was eating the wrong things. After 3 months my cholesterol levels have dropped from 7.1 to 5.6. I will continue to get it even lower and I know that if I need support Karen and the lovely ladies I met on the course are there to answer any questions.”
