Cyrus Khambatta - Mastering Diabetes With a Plant-Based Diet
This week, I'm excited to welcome Cyrus Khambatta to the show. Cyrus Khambatta received his PhD in nutritional biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley. He started Mangoman Nutrition and Fitness in 2013 to teach people with diabetes how to measure, track, and reverse insulin resistance through plant-based nutrition and strategic exercise. Through nutrition education, exercise coaching, and his personal experience as a person with type 1 diabetes, he positively influences the lives of people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes around the world. Questions asked in the episode - Mainstream advice for anyone with diabetes is to follow a low-carb diet… what are your thoughts? - How does diet impact our blood sugar levels and which foods/diets are the worst offenders? - If we decide to follow a plant-based diet, would you recommend supplementing?
