Current medical wisdom advises that anyone suffering from diabetes or prediabetes should eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. But today’s guests, Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH, rely on a century of research to show how that advice is misguided.
While it may improve short-term blood glucose control, a low-carb, high-fat diet also increases the long-term risk for chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and fatty liver disease.
Their revolutionary solution is to eat a low-fat plant-based whole-food diet. They’ve found it to be the most powerful way to reverse insulin resistance in all types of diabetes, including:
- Type 1
- Type 1.5
- Type 2
- Gestational Diabetes
This is why Cyrus and Robby founded Mastering Diabetes, an online platform that helps people do the following (in as little as 3 months):
- Reverse Insulin Resistance Permanently
- Get your best A1c
- Achieve your ideal body weight
- Lower your cholesterol
All of this is possible through their summits, coaching, and books. Their brand new book, Mastering Diabetes is out now.
As the creators of the extraordinary and effective Mastering Diabetes Method, Cyrus and Robby lay out a step-by-step proven plan to reverse insulin resistance – the root cause of blood glucose variability – while improving overall health and maximizing life expectancy.
Armed with more than 800 scientific references and drawing on more than 36 years of personal experience living with type 1 diabetes themselves, the authors show how to eat large quantities of carbohydrate-rich whole foods like bananas, potatoes, and quinoa while decreasing blood glucose, oral medication, and insulin requirements.
They also provide life-changing advice on intermittent fasting and daily exercise and offer tips on eating in tricky situations, such as restaurant meals and family dinners. Perhaps best of all: On the Mastering Diabetes Method, you will never go hungry.
With more than 30 delicious, filling, and nutrient-dense recipes and backed by cutting-edge nutritional science, Mastering Diabetes will help you maximize your insulin sensitivity, attain your ideal body weight, improve your digestive health, gain energy, live an active life, and feel the best you’ve felt in years.
