Book Out Now!

All profits go to the Public Health Collaboration


This website is the one I wish I had stumbled across 46 years ago. If I could have had this knowledge at the age of 10 it would have saved A LOT of heartache. My aim is to share with you what I now know about sugar addiction. This knowledge has finally enabled me to overcome decades of struggles with weight, food cravings and the growing hopelessness of finding a long-term solution. I want to spread a little light to those of you still trying to find your own path forward to food freedom.

Book Out Now!

Dr Jen Unwin is a Clinical Psychologist and lifelong carbohydrate addict. In this beautifully illustrated book she teams up with top clinicians in the field to share what they have learned about freeing yourself from the emotional and physical dangers of overeating sugars, flours and processed foods. The book leads you in a clear way through identifying if you have carbohydrate addiction, finding the motivation to change your life, understanding how to build the right daily eating plan, the strategies for long-term success and where to go for more information and support. Make today your ‘fork in the road’ to health and food freedom.
