Mastering Diabetes Audio Experience

Apr 20, 2021

 Maia was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2015.⁣

She was told by her doctor what many type 1’s are told at the time of diagnosis, eat a low-carb diet. She followed their advice and returned to her life as an athlete.

Later, she decided to go full keto which worked for a while and she was able to maintain an A1c of 7.1%. Eventually, she developed amenorrhea (loss of her period) and was unable to keep her blood glucose from spiking during exercise. ⁣
She searched online and discovered the work of Anthony William and his book, Liver Rescue. She followed it for 2 weeks and ate just raw fruits and veggies.

Within those 2 weeks of being on a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet her blood glucose dropped, she gained tons of energy and decided she couldn’t go back. This leads her to the Mastering Diabetes book which she read in one night while she was attending college and she was blown away by the science.
