About this event

Compulsive over-eater, binge eater, impulsive eater, emotional eater, yo-yo dieter, junk food abuser, chocoholic — call me whatever you like but please, please, please don’t call me a processed food addict.

Karren-Lee Raymond PhD, International public speaker, researcher, practitioner, and author continues to present Karren-Lee Addictionology® workshops (using the Zoom platform) based on her clinical experience, knowledge, understanding and professional expertise in the addiction realm.

Dr Raymond’s recently released book “Processed Food Addict: Is This Me?” is utilised to further one’s own journey in recovery from the potentially fatal illness of processed food addiction. Whether an individual is new in recovery, recovered, or possibly has the predisposition to processed food addiction, or is not sure, a continual understanding and reiteration of ‘treating the disease of processed food addiction on a daily basis is vital and is no different to treating any other disease. Once again, Dr Raymond stands by her motto ‘abstinence with peace of mind is the norm for a processed food addict.’

Coming into recovery the processed food addict does achieve continued abstinence as well as experiencing peace of mind; freedom ensures as one has been released from the illness and its consequences. As with any chronic disease, remission is one day at a time. Apathy, boredom, and complacency can subtly move in unawares.

Dr Raymond continues to share her wisdom, knowledge and understanding of how to permanently keep the disease of processed food addiction in remission while continually learning how to face life on life’s terms without a substance.

Organiser K-L (Dr Karren-Lee Raymond)

Organiser of ZOOM Workshop #24 — Processed Food Addiction

K-L’s research focuses on the concept of processed food addiction being a neurobiochemical condition of the brain, and the prevention and treatment being the same as treating other addictive diseases such as drug addiction and alcoholism.

Through treatment based on abstinence from the addictive substance processed food addicts can live happy and healthy lives.
