May 24, 2021

88 million Americans are pre-diabetic and of those 88 million, 84% have NO IDEA that they are pre-diabetic!


So I couldn't of a better time to release this episode!!!


Today I had the pleasure of talking to Cyrus Khambatta Ph.D, internationally recognized nutrition fitness coach and co-founder of Mastering diabetes. Which is also the name of his New York Times bestseller book. 


Cyprus takes us through his incredible journey as a type one diabetes survivor and explains how his ailing health inspired a drastic change to his diet plan as well as a career path.


He earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical engineering from the University of Stanford in 2003, before bagging a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 2012.
