Diabetes Myths with Glenys Oyston & Rebecca Scritchfield

In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m joined by registered dieticians Glenys Oyston and Rebecca Scritchfield, talking about how to manage everything from pre-diabetes to diabetes from a health at every size perspective.

We’re unpacking all the myths, whether you need to be concerned if you are genetically predisposed, whether you need to cut carbs, and changes you can make to manage blood sugars without triggering the diet mentality

In This Episode, We Talk About

  • What inspired them to create the Self Care for Diabetes Program,
  • How the current approach dehumanizes people,
