Hi, I’m Karen, an intermittent fasting mentor with a passion for supporting women to feel their very best during the journey through peri-menopause and menopause.

It’s a tricky time, but you CAN get your vitality and joy for life back, and I want to help you do it!

I’ve been navigating these waters for over a decade after experiencing an early menopause. Intermittent fasting has been transformational in helping me lose that stubborn weight, sleep better and so much more.

I’m absolutely convinced that IF lays the foundation for a healthier, happier menopause, not least because you’ll never have to diet again! I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned.

If you’d like to learn how to be the best version of yourself with my support, I invite you to join my free private Facebook group Fasting4Menopause, or please get in touch using the Contact me form below.
