How To Lose Weight & Reverse Diabetes With A Plant-Based Diet: Dr. Cyrus Khambatta x Fit With Fallon

I was truly blown away when Dr. Cyrus Khambatta explained to me the many different forms of diabetes, specifically a new form classified as Type 3. Who knew that Dementia is Type 3 Diabetes, which is Alzheimer's disease. Scientists no longer believe it is caused by a plaque build-up in the brain, instead, they realize it is controlled by one's diet and lifestyle.

Cyrus' Mastering Diabetes protocol focuses on a low fat, plant-based, whole food diet that not only will help control type 1 & 1.5 diabetes with precision (yes, there is a 1.5 version watch the entire interview.) Not only can it help reverse pre-diabetes, type 2, and gestational diabetes, not only will it help you lose weight, lower your cholesterol, lower your blood pressure but that same exact prescription will lower your risk for getting Dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

He explains "A plant-based diet is the bible for optimal and long term health. In a world of ketogenic diets, in particular, the ketogenic community is fixated on short term results for rapid weight loss. Short term results matter, but long term results are much more important. If you look at the long term data on the keto diet specifically on diabetics, it's a trainwreck. You may lower your insulin but your A1C, fasting glucose and C-Reactive Protein (CRP) continue to stay elevated."
