Managing Lipedema with Diet and Exercise with Kara Rittenhouse
Lipedema patient Kara Rittenhouse shares her experience of noticing changes in her body as a young woman, leg swelling and pain, and what she went through to find she has lipedema. She has used diet and exercise to manage her weight and health and recently had lymph sparing liposuction with Dr. Josef Stutz in Germany, which has dramatically relieved the pain and swelling. Kara tells us that she opened Rit-Fit, her nutrition and wellness company, as an extension of her personal journey of caring for her body. Kara Rittenhouse is a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Certified Nutrition & Wellness Consultant (CNWC), and Certified Group Fitness Instructor at Rit-Fit Nutrition & Wellness based in Charleston, SC.
