I'm a firm believer in the power of carbohydrate restriction for diabetes, prediabetes, obesity, weight management, and hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). A former court reporter, I became a dietitian in 2008 because I wanted to help people improve their health through good nutrition. My goal is to provide accurate, useful information and support people's efforts to optimize their blood glucose control and achieve a healthy weight, along with improving overall health and vitality.
I'm 51, and thanks to a low-carb lifestyle and gentle exercise, I feel better than I did in my 30s. I live on the Southern California coast and enjoy reading, writing, learning, cooking, walking, Pilates, and spending time with my wonderful husband, family, and friends. You can read about my purpose for creating this website in my 7/22/11 blog post.
