Overcoming Sugar Addiction
Justin Bingham

Overcoming Sugar Addiction is such a beautiful book! First, we’re taught how to gently detox from sugar, by courageously, structurally, and caringly preparing our bodies, minds, spirits, and loved ones. Then, we learn how, with tenderness and compassion, we can venture into a lifelong process of sugar freedom.

Giving us a glimpse of her own life, Karly shows us practicalities and possibilities of food selection and preparation. In a most supportive manner, she helps us see how it really is possible to have, both, sugar abstinence and a relaxed approach to eating. And then, once we’ve gotten through our sugar detox, we’re giftedly instructed on how we can replace our old thinking with new; and how we can create structures that will support us in our quest for a lifetime of sugar abstinence.

When I read Karly’s book Overcoming Sugar Addiction for the first time, I could not believe that someone “out there” understood my struggle with sugar in such an intimate way. Reading her story felt like reading my own. In her kind, soothing, and understanding way, she shared that I was not alone, she too had obsessed, binged, and raged against sugar’s all consuming hold over her mind, body, and emotions.

In her revelatory book she has created a step-by-step guide to healing sugar addiction through understanding, love and compassion for one’s deeper self. Karly’s dedication to helping those struggling with sugar addiction and binge eating patterns has been a true blessing in my life. I highly recommend her work if you have ever struggled with sugar, in any way.

Everything you write encapsulates this journey for me– it’s unbelievable. I just finished the most recent edition of Overcoming Sugar Addiction; and I am elated, light, inspired and assured. This mix of emotions is due to the fact that every day I feel a sense of deeper healing and commitment from sugar. Thank you for helping me find 2 years of sugar abstinence.

You are truly guiding my destiny, a destiny that I knew I needed to live out long before finding you. I think that’s why it’s so profound to me. I cannot express how grateful I am to have you as a trailblazer and leader, in a territory that is so unfamiliar. Your understanding is such a blessing.

Karly’s deeply compassionate heart, makes her abilities unsurpassed in addressing the sensitive issues connected to our painful eating habits and body image.

Her comprehensive and holistic mind, body and spirit approach, provided me with the tools I needed to move gently and lovingly down the path of healing. I greatly appreciate the gifts she so lovingly and generously shares.
