Current medical wisdom advises that anyone suffering from diabetes or prediabetes should eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. But today’s guests, Dr. Neal Barnard, Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH, rely on a century of research to show that advice is misguided. While it may improve short-term blood glucose control, this type of diet also increases the long-term risk for chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and fatty liver disease.
The revolutionary solution is to eat a low-fat plant-based whole-food diet, the most powerful way to reverse insulin resistance in all types of diabetes: type 1, type 1.5, type 2, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes.
First up, Chef Leslie Durso and I talk to Dr. Neal Barnard, author of Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes without Drugs. In this interview, he shares why he got into preventative medicine and diabetes research, and the cutting edge solutions to reversing it naturally with a plant-based diet.
Then, Suzy and I sat down with Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH authors of Mastering Diabetes: The Revolutionary Method to Reverse Insulin Resistance Permanently in Type 1, Type 1.5, Type 2, Prediabetes, and Gestational Diabetes.They are here to discuss their step-by-step plan that has been proven to reverse insulin resistance-the root cause of blood glucose variability- while improving overall health and maximizing life expectancy.
