Melissa’s approaches to diabetes management is to first educate her client so that they fully understand the relationship between blood sugars, food and their body. Then she takes the client through our evidenced-based diabetes nutrition pathway and shows how key healthy eating principles applies to each individual’s life in a realistic and sustainable way.
The over-arching principle that Melissa teaches is carbohydrate management and helping the client understand how carbs effect their blood sugars and work out their individual requirements. We don’t take a ‘low carb’ or a ‘high carb’ approach, we take a ‘what’s right for you carb’ approach.
