    Episode #10: Mastering Diabetes and Reversing Insulin Resistance - with Dr. Cyrus Khambatta PhD and Robby Barbaro MPH

    Episode #10: Mastering Diabetes and Reversing Insulin Resistance - with Dr. Cyrus Khambatta PhD and Robby Barbaro MPH

    In this episode, we discuss insulin resistance and energy metabolism in the brain and the rest of the body with brilliant lifestyle experts, Dr. Cyrus Khambatta PhD and Robby Barbaro MPH. Cyrus and Robby are living with Type 1 diabetes, and have been on all kinds of diets and program you can think of to manage their diabetes, and after years of trial and error and studying the evidence, they created the Mastering Diabetes Method to show how you can eat large quantities of carbohydrate-rich whole foods like bananas, potatoes, and quinoa while decreasing blood glucose, oral medication, and insulin requirements. Through their amazing work, they have helped thousands of individuals reverse their insulin resistance, lose weight and master their health. 
    Over the last decade, cumulative data have established that the brain is an insulin-sensitive organ. Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity are among the most expensive and disabling disorders worldwide. For a long time, the correlation between cognitive impairment and metabolic diseases was undetected. We now have evidence from several lines of research, including our own, that the incidence of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease is higher in type-2 diabetes patients, pointing to common mechanisms driving these disorders. Please join us on this episode as we go into the details of this very important topic that is extremely useful, whether you’re dealing with diabetes or not. It’s the key to understanding how our body uses glucose as an energy source, and what are the best ways for us to provide this fuel without taxing other systems. Cyrus and Robby have written a book titled Mastering Diabetes, which includes all of this incredibly important information and guides readers how to reverse insulin resistance in all types of diabetes: type 1, type 1.5, type 2, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes. They’ve included more than 800 scientific references and drawing on more than 36 years of personal experience living with type 1 diabetes themselves.
