    • Fitness

Whether you have diabetes or not, you definitely don't want to miss out on what Robby and Cyrus have to share about their experience eating fruit with type I diabetes! Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro co-created the Mastering Diabetes Method to reverse insulin resistance in all forms of diabetes, and have helped more than 10,000 people improve their metabolic health using low-fat, plant-based, whole-food nutrition, intermittent fasting, and exercise. In this episode we discuss what exactly diabetes is, and how their experience on this low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet has changed their relationship with fruit. 
Robby Barbaro, MPH graduated from the University of Florida and is the cofounder of Mastering Diabetes and Amla Green. Robby was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 and has been living this lifestyle since 2006. In that time, while eating pounds of fruit every day, his HbA1c value has never exceeded 6.4%, and his blood glucose has been stable and easy to manage.
Cyrus Khambatta, PhD earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 2003, then earned a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 2012. He is an internationally recognized nutrition and fitness coach who has been living with type 1 diabetes since 2002.
