Daisy's latest extraordinary woman, Megan, talks about her work as a clinical nutritionist and especially how she helps women with lipedema.

Megan Pfeffer, BHSc, is an Australian based Clinical Nutritionist with a health science degree in Nutritional & Dietetic Medicine. Megan is Coaching Director, Author, Public Speaker and CFO of Lipedema Simplified USA, and is on the Medical Advisory Board for The Lipedema Project USA. 

Lipedema Simplified and The Lipedema Project are transmedia platforms helping to raise awareness of the fat & lymphatic disorders lipedema, lipolymphedema & obesity. Megan conducts online health consultations and webinars worldwide and facilitates intensive masterclasses, in addition to being involved with Lipedema Simplified’s Tribe – a membership group designed for women seeking ongoing health education with a strong community focus.

Specialising in ketogenic diets for the dietary management of obesity, lipedema, lipolymphedema, type 2 diabetes and other chronic health conditions, Megan follows a ketogenic diet to manage her own health after discovering she had Stage 2 lipedema in early 2019.

Megan is the lead author of the 'Ketolicious Cookbook Series’. The first book ‘From Our Coaches’ Kitchens: Ketolicious for Lipedema Holiday Cookbook’ was released in 2019, and Megan is in the process of finalising the second book in the series ‘Everyday Keto for Lipedema: Eating Well for Lymphatic & Fat Disorders’. Co-authors include Dr Catherine Seo, Dr Leslyn Keith, Mende Staggs and Raeann Sparks.

Megan is passionate about helping people adopt a ketogenic lifestyle, with a focus on improving health minus the blame & shame approach experienced by many overweight women, instead using an evidence based and wholistic approach.

Megan’s health motto: “Eat Food That Loves You Back!”.
