In this presentation from the recent Low Carb USA conference Karen Thomson, former model and a recovering cocaine and sugar addict, talks about her personal journey to quitting sugar (and other drugs). For her, a big part of the solution was starting to eat an LCHF diet.
It’s really one of the most powerful talks of the entire conference.
You can watch a segment of the presentation above (transcript). The full 21-minute presentation is available (with captions and transcript) for members:

What an inspiration Karen is, 3 months of LCHF is now showing me where I hide the sugar addiction, its greatly reduced but as had re-introduced fruit lately and had lost 21/2 stone I gave myself a reward and after 1 small piece of cake I went off the rails! today watched this video and restart in earnest by dropping the fruit and greek yoghurt as know even small amounts lead to wanting more. Many thanks Karen for sharing your real life story and experiences.
Such a great presentation. Sharing this personal story is great. Karen is an inspiration to all. In time I have no doubt people will accept ‘sugar addiction’ as norm… For now we can all educate as Karen says. The more we talk about it, the more it can change. I feel this was about mental illness and stigmas surrounding them yet I don’t talk as much about the food issues I see around me. Eye opening! Thank you.
Thanks so much for sharing your story, Karen, it really helps to hear it!
Absolutely awesome, so appreciated her talk for so many reasons, just watch it!
Very very inspiring. A must watch if you have any food addictions. Well done.
