Downloadable PDF e-book
If you had to choose between loving your body, and having a thin, fit, healthy body, which would you choose? What if you could have both? What if I shared the secret that helps you be healthy and fit and love your body?
The same habits that help you create a positive body image also help you remove self destructive behaviors like overeating, extreme dieting, food obsession, and junk food addiction that keep you overweight or unhealthy.
In my ebook, I show you how to love and care for your body so that you look and feel your best. You’ll learn tips to overcome self sabotage, to lose weight, to eat healthier, and to feel better about the body you see in the mirror everyday.
“As I always tell my radio audience, we must take responsibility for our own health, which is why it is so important to understand and embrace a healthy and balanced lifestyle to include healthy eating, exercise, and reduction of stress. Karlys message of personal responsibility for a positive body image resonates powerfully with my own. Karly expresses passionately her message of combining self love with self care to gain a positive body image, as well as a healthy body, which is so important.” –Joanie Greggains, talk show radio host, fitness expert
Healing a negative body image is a two step process: combining self love with self care. Self care is what helps your body look its best. Self love is what helps you feel your best—about your body, as well as yourself. In my ebook, I offer 22 practical ways to implement these two practices in your life, so that you can love your body, feel pretty, and change negative health habits into positive ones.
“I love that your advice is not abstract. What I really appreciate about your writing is the practicality aspect of it simple rules that I know that I can incorporate in my life.” –Huma, a reader in her 20s

- Balance self-care with self-discipline
- Eliminate your body bashing triggers
- Support yourself during the change process
- Ground yourself with healthy habits

There are many different factors that contribute to a negative body image. You may be like Carol, a woman who gained weight and experienced a negative body image:
“I have gotten half way through the book and just love it. You are a wonderful writer that truly speaks to the soul of every woman. I have gained weight the last 6 months and was really struggling with the body image thing and that is why I went to your site and bought the book. I am doing the things you suggested – like just not looking at the magazines of “perfect” women – and find that very helpful. I am deeply grateful for your willingness to share your own experiences and research so candidly.” –Carol, a reader in her 50s
When we gain weight, it’s easy for our self esteem to plummet with the rising scale. I offer tips so that you can love your body with the weight gain, as well as tips so that you can reverse the weight gain, if that’s important to you.
Other women are recovering from eating disorders, and struggle to love their bodies at a normal size. This was true for Lynn, a reader in her 40s:
“I love all the shows & magazines that champion the ‘larger woman’
& I root for them but I am still having trouble with my own self
acceptance being the ‘larger woman’ struggling, struggling, but I’m
getting there. Your [writing] is going to help me immensely. Thank
you, thank you, thank you!!!!!”
I can relate to every woman’s body hatred story, as I hated my body for over 15 years. I’ve been underweight, overweight, and at a normal weight. I’ve been a chronic dieter, a bulimic, and an overeater. I know how hating your body can lead to low self esteem, wacked out eating habits, food addiction, yo-yoing weight, and a stifled life.
