You are like me (it's Erik here). I met Amy when she lived in New York City and learned about her plant powered diet.

She is the first person to make me frozen banana ice cream...YUM.

She is the only person to convince me to run a marathon...WHAT?

She is fun-loving, smiley, and has a charming Australian accent to help you START eating more plants :)

YES. Watch "Forks over Knives" to ignite that flame. Amy mentions other people she follows for daily inspiration in the course.

Hi everyone, meet Amy McKinnon!

I am a nutritionist, type 1 diabetic and long-distance runner, dedicated to working with people to achieve ultimate health and happiness through nutrition coaching.

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2000, during my first year of high school.

I changed to a plant-based lifestyle in August, 2013. This not only greatly improved my overall health and energy levels, but also greatly improved my diabetes management and athletic performance.

Over the course of the past 6 years I have run ten marathons, qualifying for the Boston marathon four times. Most recently I have been running longer distances including 52 miles in the Grand Canyon National Park - RimtoRimtoRim. My biggest adventure to date.

In 2016, to raise awareness for type 1 diabetes, I ran 40 half marathons while traveling alone around Latin America.

I am also a Diabetes Sports Project Athlete and their team nutritionist, providing nutritional recommendations and coaching to their athletes who live with diabetes. 

I found my healthiest way of living after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives. From there I initiated self-driven study through books, online courses and educational documentaries.

This led me to to begin my nutrition business, helping others live a healthy life through food and its infiltration of our mind, body and soul.
