“Guest Interview – Lily Nichols: Prenatal Nutrition”
In this episode, Laura sit down for a mind blowing conversation with Lily Nichols all about prenatal nutrition, and some of this may shock you. We dive into why conventional medicine might not have everything right and discuss the important topics for any mama, whether pregnancy is just barely on the radar, you’re pregnant now, or you’re in the postpartum period.
Lily Nichols is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, researcher, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition and exercise. Her bestselling book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes (and online course of the same name), presents a revolutionary nutrient-dense, lower carb diet for managing gestational diabetes. Her unique approach has not only helped tens of thousands of women manage their gestational diabetes (most without the need for blood sugar-lowering medication), but has also influenced nutrition policies internationally. Lily’s second book, Real Food for Pregnancy, outlines the problems with current prenatal nutrition guidelines and provides the evidence—920 citations and counting—that supports a real food diet to optimize maternal and fetal health. Lily is also creator of the popular blog, www.PilatesNutritionist.com, which explores a variety of topics related to real food, mindful eating, and pregnancy nutrition.
