#155 | Gestational Diabetes Prevention and Management with Author Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE

Down to Birth

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is the most common metabolic complication of pregnancy impacting 5-10% of pregnancies in the United States. It is controversial, complicated and loaded with misinformation. Do I really have it? Can I reverse it? Is there a way to prevent it? According to Lily Nichols, RDN CDE author of Real Food for Gestational Diabetes and Real Food for Pregnancy, you can certainly "stack the deck in your favor" to reduce your chances of it impacting your pregnancy and birth. In this episode, we discuss the nutritional deficits that may set you up for the development of GDM along with the flaws in how we screen women for GDM and finally, the things you can do to best manage your diet if you are diagnosed with GDM.

Episode 37: Lily Nichols | Evidence-based Prenatal Nutrition

The Fit and Fabulous Podcast

On today's episode, Dr. Jaime interviews RDN/CDE, Lily Nichols. Lily Nichols: "There is arguably no time more important to have optimal nutrition than during pregnancy and this, my friends, is my forte. My career as a registered dietitian/nutritionist and certified diabetes educator unfolded rather organically and my work has included prenatal nutrition public policy, consulting, research, writing, and clinical practice. All of these experiences have brought me to where I am today. For you, this means you can trust that I have an in-depth understanding of all sides of the prenatal nutrition coin (including why conventional policy is what it is AND where there’s room for improvement). In short, my work is known for being evidence-based (that is, backed by research) and sensible (yes, that’s a fancy way of saying common sense)."EPISODE SPONSOR: Sparkle - Enjoy 20% off using code DRFIT at www.lovesparkle.life

Real Food and Mother-Baby Health: Eating for our Physiologic Design, with Lily Nichols RDN

The Wild Mother Podcast

Like many of our beliefs around pregnancy, birth and mothering, much of what we believe about food is grounded not in evidence or physiology, but in emotion, misinformation and dogma. Today's guest is the brilliant Lily Nichols - Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, researcher, and author of Real Food for Pregnancy and Real Food for Gestational Diabetes. Lily’s bestselling books have helped tens of thousands of mamas (and babies!), are used in university-level maternal nutrition and midwifery courses, and have even influenced prenatal nutrition policy internationally. Lily's genius is to cut through the emotion and misinformation, and look at the actual research (what we know, and what we don’t know), and then to bring that information to mamas so that we can make informed and evidence-based choices about how we eat. We talk about: How the conventional “wisdom” and standard nutritional advice given to pregnant mamas is completely inadequate (and if you follow it, you'll likely end up with nutritional deficiencies!) What a ‘real food’ approach to perinatal nutrition is, and why it’s optimal for the health of mothers and babies What a real food diet actually looks like during pregnancy (hint: it’s not that complicated, and it’s pretty delicious!) What you need to know if you’re a vegetarian or vegan mama (this is a subject that’s surrounded by a lot of emotion and morality, so we steer clear of morality here and we focus instead on what we know through nutrition research and our physiology as humans, so that you can make informed choices for yourself and your baby). Nutritional requirements in the postpartum period, especially for breastfeeding mamas, and how you can prepare during pregnancy for a nourished, supported postpartum without the depletion and exhaustion that is far too common an experience for mamas.
