The Happy Pear Podcast

Can diabetes both type 1 and type 2 be reversed by food and lifestyle choices?

Episode 99 – Mastering Diabetes

This week we speak to Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH the co-authors of the New York Times bestselling book Mastering Diabetes and the cofounders of Mastering Diabetes, a coaching program that teaches people how to reverse insulin resistance via low-fat, plant-based, whole-food nutrition. 

Cyrus has been living with type 1 diabetes since 2002, and has an undergraduate degree from Stanford University and a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from UC Berkeley. Robby was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2000, and has been living a plant-based lifestyle since 2006. He worked at Forks Over Knives for 6 years, and earned a Master’s in Public Health in 2019. 

A brilliant episode that will leave you stocking up on your fruit!


Lots of Love,
