Aaron and Glenys dive deep in to a discussion on non-diet, HAES-based care for diabetes with Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE. Megrette is a certified diabetes educator who provides non-weight-focused education for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes, and teaches other professionals how to provide this care as well. Founder of the Center for Mindful Eating, Megrette advocates for pleasurable, mindful eating and shame reduction to help manage blood sugars instead of restriction and weight loss. In this episode, she gives us a handy metaphor for understanding how our insulin works and how we can best help our own bodies utilize its insulin. For those who have been scared by or felt shame for a diagnosis or family history of diabetes, we think you’ll find this episode extremely helpful in helping you get your self-compassionate self-care on.
