Lily Nichols is a researcher, speaker, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition and a unique specialty in gestational diabetes. A Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, and Certified Pilates Instructor, Lily is the first dietitian to publicly advocate for a nutrient-dense, lower carb diet for managing gestational diabetes. Her book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, (and online course of the same name), has helped thousands of women have healthy babies – and most without the need for blood sugar-lowering medication. What’s now been dubbed her “Real Food Approach” is currently being used in several research studies. Lily is also creator of the popular blog, Pilates Nutritionist which explores a variety of topics related to real food nutrition including mindful eating, digestive health, and of course, pregnancy.
