I am very excited to speak with Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro, authors of Mastering Diabetes. Cyrus and Robby are on a mission to help diabetics increase insulin sensitivity and decrease insulin resistance. If you or someone you know has diabetes (type 1, type 1.5, type 2, prediabetes, gestational diabetes), this video is for you.
In this interview, we cover how anyone can master their diabetes with a low fat, whole food plant-based diet. In particular, Cyrus and Robby, both type 1 diabetics, share how they lowered their insulin use by over 500% by building their diets around high carbohydrate foods.
Their new book, Mastering Diabetes, officially releases February 18, 2020. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone dealing personally with diabetes or wanting to help their loved ones deal with this life altering disease.
