Hi, my name’s Jon Lanman, and I’m a Prediabetes Nutritionist, with accreditation as a Registered Dietitian and Clinical Exercise Physiologist. I help people with prediabetes to navigate their diet and make healthy lifestyle changes to help reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
If you’ve recently been told you have prediabetes, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, scared, and searching for help with a sense of urgency. That’s understandable. But first, I want you to stop, take a deep breath and pause for a moment.
Now, listen to what I have to say.
There are almost 88 million people in the US today who have prediabetes. 80% of those people don’t even know they have it.
The fact that you are aware of it, and that you are here right now – that means you are on the right track to turning it around. And yes, YOU CAN turn prediabetes around. You are not destined to develop type-2-diabetes. And since you know about it, you can do something about it. But, you’ll now need to take action.
What to Do?
Studies have shown that prediabetes can be reversed through dietary changes, increased physical activity, and losing 5-7% of body weight. But, it’s sometimes difficult to make these changes alone. We know that people have the most success when they have people who support them. That means friends and family, but it also means having a guide to help you along the way.
As a prediabetes nutritionist, I help people:
- Build healthy, balanced eating habits that fit to your schedule and taste preferences.
- Make small healthy changes, which accumulate to make lasting health change.
- Add more physical activity to their day, without causing overwhelm.
When you work with me, we go beyond just identifying “what to eat” vs “what not to eat”. Instead, we focus on developing a strategy that will work for you. That means identifying your challenges, and working together to solve problems, so you can keep moving forward.
Aside from addressing nutrition and exercise, you’ll also learn strategies for managing stress, getting better sleep, and improving your energy levels. And, all of those also help in reversing prediabetes.
Working Together to Reverse Prediabetes
I personally became a Registered Dietitian and Exercise Physiologist just because I wanted to help raise awareness for prediabetes, and I wanted to empower people to reverse it.
If you’re ready to take action, I’d love to work with you.

Why I Care About Prediabetes
As a child I became familiar with type 2 diabetes from my grandfather, who was the primary male role model in my life. In the generation that he was diagnosed, there was no such thing as prediabetes. Doctor’s of the time were not aware of the signs that occur before diabetes, and therefore had a harder chance of reversing the condition before it was too late.
Later in life, I also had an uncle who was diagnose with diabetes. And, as I became older, I started to recognize the prevalence of diabetes, and the threat that it not only provides to my life, but our societies as well.
So, when I became are of prediabetes, and that you could actually prevent diabetes from developing, I became passionate about spreading the word and empowering people to take realistic steps to bettering their health.
After going back to school to become a Registered Dietitian and Clinical Exercise Physiologist, I now help people as a prediabetes counselor and nutritionist, so they can live healthier, more satisfying lives.
