In today’s episode, Marissa Kai talks with Amanda Ciprich. Amanda Ciprich (Sip-RICH) is a Registered Dietitian who specializes in diabetes nutrition and education. Her passion for nutrition began after her diagnosis of type one diabetes at the age of 18. During the early years of her diagnosis, she followed many restrictive diets in hopes she could manipulate her blood sugars into being well-controlled. She thought that what she was doing was healthy, but it destroyed her relationship with food. She was constantly thinking about food, stressed about what to eat, and no longer found food enjoyable. This made living with diabetes overwhelming and stressful. It wasn’t until Amanda stopped following restrictive diets and focused on eating with balance, moderation, and variety that she finally began to feel happy and healthy! Amanda helps other type one diabetics improve their relationship with food so they can manage their blood sugars and live a happier life with diabetes!
“I feel like private practice is its own world. Instagram itself is its own world, but just having your own little community so you can reach out to ask questions.” – Amanda Ciprich
