Show Notes

Robby Barbaro is the co-founder of Mastering Diabetes, an online Group Coaching platform designed to support individuals in managing and reversing all types of diabetes.

In this conversation, we talk about Robby's journey of optimally managing his type 1 diabetes and his intention of finding a way to naturally reverse this chronic "autoimmune" condition. We also of course focus on the bigger issue at hand, which is type 2 diabetes.


Some important take aways include... 

  • Distinguishing Type 1 vs Type 2 diabetes - blood tests and pathological differences
  • The underlying cause of type 2 diabetes - insulin resistance
  • What CAUSES insulin resistance
  • How a low fat, whole food plant based diet reverses insulin resistance
  • Why carbs are your friend when preventing and reversing diabetes
  • The format of the Mastering Diabetes program that supports so many in healing
