Weight loss isn’t a bad goal to have while living with diabetes. Unsustainable weight loss is.
There is a massive difference between weight loss lead by restriction, and weight loss lead by fueling your body and enjoying the process.
Inside today’s episode, I sit down with my co-coach and friend, Jessica Hrdlicka. Jessica is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator who helps people living with diabetes lose weight and manage blood sugars all while eating the foods that they love.
Inside our conversation, we talk all about an empowered approach to your weight goals and taking the journey without restriction.
