Today I’m joined by Amy Lee Giannotti, an accredited practising dietitian, and intuitive eating counsellor based in Melbourne, Australia. Having gone through her own person transformation with her relationship with food and exercise, Amy is now passionate about helping others do the same.

Amy realised that many of the learnings she had regarding nutrition were steeped in diet culture, and weight stigma and she got sick and tired of prescribing diet plans that didn’t work. Fed up with the status quo, she knew there had to be another way, which is when she started looking into intuitive eating.

During this whole process she was also facing the difficult journey of recovering from hypothalamic amenorrhea, which she documented and spoke openly about on her Instagram page. She’s not only recovered her period, but is now pregnant and living out her dreams both personally and professionally.

In today’s podcast Amy and I are going to be discussing:

  • Her time as a competitive athlete and what her relationship with food was like at that time
  • Her ah-ha moment when she realised her healthy lifestyle wasn’t all that healthy
  • What recovery from Hypothalamic Amenorrhea is actually like – the good, the bad, and everything in between
  • How she transitioned to intuitive eating and why she’s passionate about teaching others about this
  • The journey to falling pregnant
