Reversing diabetes, insulin resistance and the fear of carbs with Cyrus, PhD and Robby, MPH
Jun 14, 2020 Season 1 Episode 5

In this episode, we welcome Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH, to the podcast. Both have been living with type 1 diabetes for several years. Cyrus was diagnosed in 2002 while Robby was diagnosed in 2000. Ultimately, they both discovered the incredible power of a low-fat, whole food plant-based diet to maximize their insulin sensitivity and together they created the Mastering Diabetes coaching program to share this information with the world. 

In this episode we cover: 

  • How Robby and Cyrus were each diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and ultimately discovered a plant-based diet 
  • The different types of diabetes 
  • What actually causes insulin resistance 
  • Why avoiding carbohydrates is not the solution to high blood sugar 
  • The criteria for diagnosing and reversing type 2 diabetes 
  • The long term consequences of keto and low carb diets 
  • How to maximize insulin sensitivity 
  • Role of meat 
  • Eating fruit as a diabetic
