Description of Mastering Diabetes Pdf
Mastering Diabetes Pdf: Current medical wisdom advises that anyone suffering from diabetes or prediabetes should eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. But in this revolutionary audiobook, Cyrus Khambatta, PhD, and Robby Barbaro, MPH, rely on a century of research to show that advice is misguided. While it may improve short-term blood glucose control, such a diet also increases the long-term risk for chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and fatty liver disease.
The revolutionary solution is to eat a low-fat plant-based whole-food diet, the most powerful way to reverse insulin resistance in all types of diabetes: type 1, type 1.5, type 2, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes.
As the creators of the extraordinary and effective Mastering Diabetes Method, Khambatta and Barbaro lay out a step-by-step plan proven to reverse insulin resistance – the root cause of blood glucose variability – while improving overall health and maximizing life expectancy. Armed with more than 800 scientific references and drawing on more than 36 years of personal experience living with type 1 diabetes themselves, the authors show how to eat large quantities of carbohydrate-rich whole foods like bananas, potatoes, and quinoa while decreasing blood glucose, oral medication, and insulin requirements. They also provide life-changing advice on intermittent fasting and daily exercise and offer tips on eating in tricky situations, such as restaurant meals and family dinners. Perhaps best of all: On the Mastering Diabetes Method, you will never go hungry.
With more than 30 delicious, filling, and nutrient-dense recipes and backed by cutting-edge nutritional science, Mastering Diabetes will help you maximize your insulin sensitivity, attain your ideal body weight, improve your digestive health, gain energy, live an active life, and feel the best you’ve felt in years.
Includes a PDF of recipes and illustrations.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

When I met Cyrus at a wedding 4 years ago, I asked him what he did. He said something about “doing retreats, and coaching people with diabetes on what to eat to improve their diabetes and health.”
“Oh,” I said, “You must feed them some kind of low-carb, keto/paleo-type diet, right?”
He looked me right in the eye and said “Nope, on retreat they eat a LOT of fruit. Like, piles and piles of fruit the whole time.”
I just stared at him. “Uhhh, some kind of low-glycemic fruit?”
“Nope,” He replied, “any kind of fruit, bananas, dates, papaya, mangoes, veggies, and almost no fat.”
I was kind of bewildered and horrified, and figured he was a little off his rocker. I politely said, “Uhh, ok, nice to meet you,” and walked away thinking he was really weird.
At the time I was quite a devotee of a high meat, high fat, butter coffee, paleo- or keto-type diet, and had read a ton of books on it. I also have a degree in biology, and was sure that this was the best and most logical nutrition. Unfortunately, I didn’t actually feel great, didn’t have great energy, but I figured I just needed to do the low carb thing longer, be more strict with it.
A couple drinks later in the evening at the reception, my politeness was overcome by my curiosity. “Ok,” I said to Cyrus, “You feed diabetics piles of WHAT??” But then he explained, and my entire life changed. He explained to me, like he explains in this book, how the fats block the ability of the nutritious and high quality fruit sugar to get from the blood stream into the brain and muscles, and block up the ability of your insulin to do its job, so people require more and more insulin. He explained all of his research, all of the evidence, all of the trials. How he studied mice, and found that feeding the mice fats could make them diabetic, but feeding the mice just sugar never did. How the sugar spike in the bloodstream was a symptom, not a cause of any problems. He told me about the real “paleo” diet, and how we are descended from primates that thrive most eating eat high fruit, high carb, low fat diets. He told me about how great he felt when he started eating this way, how he never got sick with colds anymore. And he explained why I currently felt like crap eating piles of meat and butter coffee.
And I did feel like crap. If I was honest, I really didn’t ever feel very good. I was tired. All of the evidence he presented made enough sense that I tried it. I switched my entire diet, ate mostly raw fruits and veggies (including piles of fruit!), and kept my fats to 15% or less of my daily calories. And within DAYS my energy started to skyrocket, and was really steady. My head was clear, my body felt fantastic. I stopped drinking coffee because I just didn’t need it. I started running, just because it felt good. Within two months of that meeting, I started tapering off and was able to discontinue my postpartum depression medication that I had needed for almost two years.
Today is over four years later. And just like he described, ever since I changed my diet, I rarely get sick. My migraines went away. Skin issues went away. Even stretch marks from my first pregnancy suddenly disappeared. The depression never came back, even after I had my second child. I haven’t had a sinus infection since then either, which I used to get several every year. My energy is consistent and strong, even with small children and little sleep. I’m still eating piles of fruit every day, and I love reading about how to use fruits, veggies, potatoes and herbs to continually improve my health.
This information isn’t just for diabetics. Since not everyone has the luxury to meet Cyrus or Robby, I’m so glad everyone has access to this information now, and can cure their fruit/potato fear once and for all. Try eating piles of fruit with salad and steamed veggies and potatoes with basically no fat for a week, and just see how great you feel. Get your A1c tested, try this way of eating for a month, and test it again. The results are just so clear and easily measurable. Try it. I didn’t know my body could feel this good.
I attached a photo I took about 3 months after I met Cyrus, 2 years after the birth of our first child. I had never felt so good in my life.

I was super excited to read this book, having followed the authors on social media for a long term.
Whilst in principle, this is a great book, I do warn of the lack of scientific evidence on this diet. Whilst there are lots of anecdotal reviews from successful people, there aren’t any clinical trials using this protocol that prove its hypothesis. This is a shame as then it just becomes ANOTHER diet.
As we know that weight loss, or in particular fat loss from the vital organs is the predominately best focus for T2Diabetics to focus their efforts on and this can be achieved with almost any diet, making this diet quite extreme in its nature.
Unlimited low fat carbohydrates and low protein is just a calories deficit and removal of processed foods. How is that achievable long term? Eating out and socially becomes very difficult. What about the long term effects of low protein diets, the lack of variety, it’s a very limiting diet which science shows isn’t the best practice for long term goals.
So in summary. A plant based diet is a good diet, but with a lack of long term clinical trials the extreme nature of making it low fat, this feels like a short term diet than a long term solution for most people.
I also feel a book that doesn’t mention “visceral fat” in the context of diabetes is not 100% “evidence based”.
More research needed.
