Mastering Diabetes Audio Experience

Aug 18, 2020

We had another chance to sit down with Simon Hill on the Plant Proof podcast. This time for a deep dive into the plant-based ketogenic diet and whether or not it is a good option for patients with insulin resistance and Diabetes.

Specifically, we cover:

  • 11:40 Why a low carbohydrate diet is popular for people living with diabetes and frequently recommenced by Doctors
  • 14:40 Low carbohydrate diets are good at promoting weight loss but often negatively affect biomarkers of cardiovascular risk
  • 20:35 A new 2019 study looking at a traditional Ketogenic Diet
  • 25:19 Definition of reversing diabetes based on certain criteria
  • 35:35 Can a Ketogenic diet truly reverse insulin resistance?
  • 45:33 A plant-based ketogenic diet
  • 54:18 Who may be well suited to a plant-based ketogenic diet
  • and much more

Whether you have diabetes or not, we think you will still find this episode interesting. Plus, with rates of Diabetes skyrocketing, particularly pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes, it's highly likely that most people listening know someone who is affected by this disease.

We hope you enjoyed the show and if you did please tag us on social media using @masteringdiabetes - we would love to hear from you.
