Kimmi Katte works as a Clinical Nutritionist in Australia, where she enjoys teaching her clients how to use food to improve their health. While her profession requires that she is very familiar with many different dietary protocols, she chooses the ketogenic diet as her preferred to eat, using it as one of her strategies in the management of lymphedema and lipedema. Kimmi has had primary, bilateral, lower leg lymphedema for 29 years.
Since starting the ketogenic diet, Kimmi has reduced or resolved many of her other health conditions including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, pre-diabetes, major depressive disorder, hypothyroid, chronic allergies, chronic venous insufficiency, GERD, and multiple benign tumours throughout her body.
Kimmi teaches a nutrient dense version of the ketogenic diet (as well as other dietary protocols that may be suitable for individuals), and many people who have lymphedema and have made the change to a ketogenic diet are a testament to its ability to reduce lymphatic swelling. Her Facebook group Lymphedema and the Classic Ketogenic Diet is the starting point for people to get the basics of this way of eating and also where others with lymphedema can provide and receive support and encouragement to make sustainable changes.
