Learn how to Improve Blood Sugar Levels and Achieve Weight Loss Through Food and Nutrition

Approximately 50% of women with a history of gestational diabetes will go on to eventually be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The risk may be higher for women who are overweight or obese. I teach women how to keep their blood sugars within normal range and their body lean through managing their food and nutrition in order to help avoid developing type 2 diabetes.

It is common for people to restrict or avoid certain foods when looking to improve health. However, I prefer to focus on what to add to your meals or what simple alterations to make in order to maximize nutritional status and health.

Being a Registered Dietitian, Kimberley has had a passion for nutrition, diabetes management, cardiovascular health, and weight management through the lens of “all foods fit”.  She does not believe in severe restriction or avoiding your favorite foods.  Instead, learning portion control and behavior modification, it is possible to manage or prevent type 2 diabetes and maintain a healthy weight.

Her goal is to educate women on the importance of blood sugar management, while teaching them it is possible to feel lean and confident in their weight.  Having been diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her pregnancies, she feels it is her duty to educate all women on the science surrounding the development and management of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
