Ep. 8: Robby Barbaro-Having Diabetes Has Been a Gift – Plant-Strong with Rip Esselstyn 

Robby Barbaro is a seeker. After being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 12, Barbaro set off on a quest to optimize his health, buck conventional beliefs and thrive in spite of his illness. His drive for truth has become his life’s work.

“It’s not the banana’s fault,” he stresses, when it comes to the confusion and lack of understanding around eating fruit and managing diabetes. Barbaro is the co-founder of Mastering Diabetes, a comprehensive program developed to help people both understand the science of insulin resistance and take control of their health through a low-fat plant-based diet. Together with Dr. Cyrus Khambatta, they just released their first book by the same name.

Type II diabetes, in particular, is preventable and even reversible if you put the right lifestyle habits into play. And, contrary to what you may have heard, all forms of this devastating disease can be mitigated with a whole-foods, plant-based diet. If you’re willing to communicate and be vulnerable, he says, you can optimize your health and enjoy this wonderful diet of abundance and not deprivation.
