Welcome to Carolyn's Raw Foods!

I'm Carolyn Akens, an accomplished entrepreneur, successful chef, and a dynamic educator. My background includes working as a Business System Analyst, Claims Operations Manager, and Executive Assistant. My culinary career began in 2001, as a personal chef preparing delicious and healthy meals for clients.

Due to the devastating loss of my younger brother to morbid obesity (obesity kills), I knew that a lifestyle change had to happen; and in my research discovered raw foods. I trained to become a certified master raw food chef and raw food instructor. I am also a weight loss coach.

I have always been passionate about healthy and nutritious foods so transitioning to eating raw and living foods was a natural progression.

Since going raw, I have lost 60 pounds (originally weighed 185) and now weigh 125 pounds, and I am a size 4 instead of a 12/14. Having dealt with high cholesterol, migraines, arthritis, and weight fluctuation, I made raw foods a standard of living and went through an amazing transformation. My body and spirit are now healthy, revitalized, and energized.

Please contact me for availability for local and national speaking engagements. I also travel for workshops and training for small and large groups. For more information, please e-mail: or call:
(770) 559-1773.

As a weight loss coach, I coach clients dealing with weight problems and offer various solutions to lose weight naturally. I am the creator of the Carolyn's Weight Loss System™, Losing Weight The Natural Way & Keeping It Off!

I certify and train raw food chefs and instructors to prepare delicious raw and living foods that not only satisfy the palate, but nourish the body.

I hope you have a wonderful fit, healthy and energetic day! Keep helping people lose weight the natural way. Obesity rates are very high, and so you are doing a great service by doing this. I am also very much into helping people get fit and healthy for a lifetime through following a healthy lifestyle; without relying on diet pills, surgeries, fad diets, etc.
