Life After Diets works ... 

"All the degrees in the world don't come close to the lived experience, that you have Karla.  You are truly an inspiration and I thank you.  I am well on my way to a better and healthier relationship with food." Angela

"Ive got more out of one session with you than seven years of therapy with psychologists and other counsellors, even some who say they specialise in eating issues!  Don't ever stop what you are doing, you are a life saver!"  Sarah

"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, you were such a huge part of my recovery.  I would not have been able to push through and come out the other side if it wasn’t for you.  I can finally say I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  My relationship with food has tremendously changed and improved and so has my relationship with my husband.  I gained the weight I needed to in ‘my’ time which has had a huge impact on my brain and body function.  I now get hungry. Lol!  Everyday isn’t always a breeze but it’s easier to listen to the positive and not the negative.  I will always remember that you helped to save my life"  Claire.

"I've struggled with dieting, binge eating and my body image for 27 years now, since I was 17.  I've read all the books, bought the programs, tried the more reputable weight loss centres and visited dozens of doctors, counsellors and psychologists.  They all give you basic advice and try to be helpful but nothing has worked for me in the long term.  No-one really understands this issue like you do.  They don't know binge eating and the hell that it is.  You've been there and you honestly know what it's like.  That's why what you are doing is so unique.  I feel like your program is giving me lots of suggestions and options to choose from so I can do this my way.  All the others just tell you what to do and what to eat and I cannot stand to be told what to eat anymore!  That's the difference.  I am just so happy I have found you and to know that you are supporting me with this.  I feel a lot better in this short time and I am already achieving personal goals I never thought would be possible.  Thank you so much Karla"  Cheryl

"Your program was absolutely instrumental in helping me overcome the grip of bulimia. Although it was still a bit of a journey after my program ended with you, the learnings and knowledge stuck with me and I continued to work through my issues with food and eating, knowing that dieting was not the answer. Two years down the track and I am the healthiest and happiest I have ever been. I eat whatever I want, which typically is an abundance of all the amazing wholesome “good” stuff that nature provides, including my daily dose of chocolate.  I am now challenging myself fitness wise, and am proud to report that today I completed my goal of running the Bridge to Brisbane 5km race in under 30 minutes. I feel like a totally different person than the one that came to you. The funny thing about it too is that I am probably the same size I was when I met you (size 10-12), but feel so comfortable and healthy and gorgeous. Amazing what a difference our attitudes make, don’t they!"   With deepest gratitude, Mandie.

Welcome to your life after diets


Karla Cameron provides hope and a deeper level of understanding for people with eating issues -  whether you identify as struggling with emotional eating, binge eating, bulimia, anorexia or body image issues, I can help you.  

Life After Diets was born when I decided to use my experience, instead of having it use me.  I am the founder of Life After Diets, a program to feed your self-esteem and help you transform your relationship with food.  I provide counselling for all eating issues.


It's not your fault!  Dieting is the single biggest cause of developing an eating issue.

Dieting causes us to become pre-occupied with food and our weight.  Dieting triggers a loss of control over eating as a normal, natural, biological, survival response.   Overeating causes weight gain and weight gain causes further dieting, which is how we become repeat-clients locked into the weight loss industry.  The last thing the billion dollar weight loss industry wants us to do is get smart, get out and become 'unobsessed' with food and our weight – it’s not good for their profits.

When we are no longer dieting and restricting, we will also no longer be rebounding by losing control and overeating, so the struggle will cease to exist.   Many people do end up releasing their emotional weight as a natural, long-term side-effect of embracing life as an intuitive eater and finally dealing with the core underlying issues of why you emotionally eat.  It's not about the food.


Life After Diets provides...

An alternative and holistic philosophy about your relationship with food.  You can test the waters and attend a one-off session or you can keep coming back to complete the entire program in a series of one-on-one private sessions.  The choice is always yours.  Small group workshops are regularly presented throughout the year in Brisbane.  Interstate clients can utilise telephone counselling sessions with Karla. 

 In your journey to freedom, you will be given many tried and tested practical ideas and strategies to finally understand and work with your eating issue.  You will discover it was no accident you developed an eating issue.  Our eating issues have a great depth of meaning and they 'work' for us in many sub-conscious ways.  You will be given plenty of time to integrate and finely tune the new ideas to see what works best for you, in your life.  Instead of rejecting your past experiences and being terrified by years of suppressed or denied feelings, you will find yourself slowly embracing them and dealing with them in new and most importantly, safe ways.  You will begin to trust yourself.

Truly resolving your eating issue is about taking on more personal responsibility and reclaiming your personal power.  Full responsibility is gently handed over to the best person there is to make all the decisions regarding your body, your weight and your eating preferences – that's you.

By taking one step at a time, in your own time, you will discover a real shift has happened.  This is the internal revolution you have been seeking.


You may have never heard the terms 'intuitive eating' or 'non-diet approach' before and that's okay, this is common thinking.  That's because there is no money to be made out of teaching people how to do it for themselves.  Conversely, we're all highly attuned (and exhausted) by the world of dieting, detoxing and weight loss programs.  Losing weight - even temporarily, like 98% of dieters do - is all about making money, not helping people make real changes in their lives. 

In Australia by 2015, it is estimated we will be spending 1 Billion dollars annually in this industry.  In the U S, spending in this industry is approximately 60 Billion annually.  And yet Australia and the U.S. frequently top both obesity and eating disorders lists of statistics per capita.

A non-diet approach first surfaced in the USA in 1970 (known then as an anti-diet approach) by Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann, who are world pioneers with their "Overcoming Overeating" workshops and book of the same name.  Susie Orbach from the UK documents every woman's struggle with her "Fat Is a Feminist Issue" book series from 1978.  Dr Rick Kausman is Australia's non-diet pioneer since 1989, beginning with his "If Not Dieting, Then What?" book. 

The current global movement gathering an enormous amount of strength, which incorporates a non-diet approach, is called "Health at Every Size".   You are not alone, there is much support out there.
