112: Mastering Diabetes, Part 2

112: Mastering Diabetes, Part 2

Robby Barbaro was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 12 years old. Currently, along with his business partner Cyrus Khambatta (from Episode 111), Robby runs "Mastering Diabetes"; an online coaching program that has changed thousands of lives of people living with Type 1, 1.5 or Type 2 Diabetes, along with Prediabetes and even Gestational Diabetes.

In this episode, Robby goes through the major difference between natural sugars (such as fructose) and processed white sugar. He also explains why whole foods, in their natural form, are the best foods for everyone, including diabetics.

111: Mastering Diabetes, Part 1

Dr. Cyrus Khambatta (aka Mango Man) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2002, when he was a presumably-healthy 22-year-old college athlete. Did you know, there are an estimated 75 million people, in the United States, that are currently UNDIAGNOSED and UNKNOWINGLY living with Diabetes or Prediabetes?!?
In this episode Cyrus not only explains the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, but also explains some of the warning signs and even introduces a new (to me, anyway) diagnosis of Type 1.5 Diabetes.

Also, Stay Tuned for Episode 112 (Part 2 of "Mastering Diabetes"), where we talk to Cyrus' Diabetic friend and business partner, Robby Barbaro!
