A day in the life of Karen Knowler


Stella Magazine, a supplemental included in UK's Sunday Telegraph, recently profiled the gorgeous Karen Knowler, and her raw diet, in a feature they did called Food Diaries.

If you've ever wondered what schedule of a happy, healthy and successful raw foodist looks like, take a look:

7am I drink a pint of water. I used to weigh 12 stone and eat anything that was put in front of me. Now I don't eat until I feel hungry. My five-year-old son has breakfast while I do his packed lunch.

9am-10am Go to the gym where I swim or work out with a personal trainer. I do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weights.

11.30am I work from home and after I've checked my emails I have green juice - a blend of spinach, pineapple, apple, celery, cucumber, lemon and lime. After becoming a vegetarian, I got into raw food in 1993. My stepfather is a butcher and my family thought I was going to die! But cooked food is less nutritious because heat destroys enzymes, water, oxygen, vitamins and minerals.

Damn, we haven't even hit 1pm and Karen's already making serious moves. Click here to see how Karen spends the rest of her day
