Today I am joined by Dione Milauskas. She is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor who specializes in the non-diet approach to lowering A1c and blood sugar.
Dione first shares about her diagnosis with not only PCOS, but also with prediabetes and insulin resistance, and her personal journey to managing her health issues without a rigid diet. She then speaks about her specialty as a dietitian for people with prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes and how to lower their A1c and blood sugar without dieting. Dione describes how she became certified in intuitive eating, how it benefits individuals with diabetes, and what it means to view somebody’s overall well-being as a whole.
If you are someone who has tried other options without success, or don’t want to focus on weight loss, Dione’s recommendations that will last for a lifetime and her nutrition tips for pre diabetes are a must listen!

CONNECT WITH DIONE:
Dione is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor who specializes in the non-diet approach to lowering A1c and blood sugar. Dione has previously worked in long-term care, corporate wellness, and biomedical research at the world’s largest academically-based nutrition research institution, Pennington Biomedical Research Center (PBRC).
After being diagnosed with prediabetes, insulin resistance, and PCOS, Dione noticed that the traditional approach (focusing on weight loss and eating very low carbs) to lowering blood sugar didn’t work for her (or for most people). She decided to ditch the diets and focus on a more sustainable way of eating which focuses on pairing carbs with protein and fat for optimal blood sugar balance.
Dione loves helping people learn how to lower their blood sugar/A1c while eating foods they love. Through the pairing method, she has taught clients and followers alike how to lower their blood sugar and A1c below the prediabetic range without dieting. Helping people find the balance between eating for “health” and eating for “satisfaction” is her passion.
