    Mastering Diabetes I’m wondering if this diet would help someone with PCOS who has insulin resistance? Or does it only work for people with diabetes? Thanks.

  • Sue G

    Great video! I’m sold, I can do it for a month. Now, what is the next step. I’m type 2. Thanks

    Where do you get cheap fruit in califnornia??

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Look for wholesale markets. Googe “Wholesale produce near INSERT YOUR CITY.”. You can also find deals at dollar stores and Trader Joes!

    hi guys. i’m still a little confused when you say carbohydrates as i didn’t see many grains or pasta in the dishes that were shown. do you limit the amount of grains and pasta in your plan? do you only mean complex carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables? anyway, thanks in advance for your response.

    • changingears

      thanks guys for your quick reply and adding that final bit of the puzzle for me. i think what threw me is that i just saw a video of yours that showed the results of a rice and fruit diet that was also successful for type 2 diabetics and another video where rice and corn were mentioned in another successful diet against diabetes. that is why i was wondering what you personally recommended as i think you recommend no-limit carbs and that would make more sense if starches were not the base of the diet. i think what makes it even more confusing is the other plant-based diets out there like the starch diet, the potato diet, etc. all of them also being reported as being successful against diabetes. anyway what are you guys’ opinion about diets like the potato diet, starch diet, etc? what do you personally recommend and why? in the meantime i’ll head over to your fb page and look forward to your upcoming videos to help clarify this even more. i’d also like to thank you guys for all the help and inspiration you have provided so far and keep up the good work!

      Sorry you are confused. We are working on some blog posts and videos (and recipes) to clarify this even more. But the bottom line is that our diet is built around fruits, greens, non-starchy vegetables, starchy vegetables, beans, legumes and grains. The key is that those foods be eaten as minimally processed as possible. Stay tuned for lots of recipes coming soon. Forks Over Knives has a lot of great recipes. Some need to be tweaked, like maybe taking bread out of some recipes. But this all depends on where the person is starting and what their goals are.

    Do you guys have a video debunking lo-carb keto style philosophy within nutrition?

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Amazing question. We have scheduled that video to go out early next week! Be sure to stay tuned because it’s a fun one.

    I counsel T2D and I try to encourage more low sugar fruits and I do caution them a bit with the higher sugar fruits such as dates, grapes, cherries etc even tho I understand the fat/saturated fats are really the big issue. However I always hear feedback from patients that say their glucose spikes after eating fruits. Please help me understand this happens if fruits are healthy and a natural food for humans?

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Step 1: Reduce fat intake SIGNIFICANTLY. Step 2: Increase fruit intake. It must be in this order. Yes, fruits are a phenomenal source of energy and a great way to improve your long-term health. -Cyrus Khambatta PhD

    Awesome !

  • Rohan Studios

    I watch every vlog helps me learn alot

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Hey Rohan, thanks for your comment. I’m glad it helps you learn more about nutrition. The more you learn about plant-based nutrition, the more powerful you become at changing our own life.

  • Susanelizabeth Turner

    As usual, wonderful video! If it is not too personal, may I ask if Meghan is on insulin pump or injections? You used the word “bolus”which I thought was only associated with a pump but maybe they’re using it with injections also now? I’m not as familiar with injections anymore.

    Again, thank you so much for these wonderful videos. You guys are awesome.

    • Susanelizabeth Turner

      Thanks! I’ve been “pumping” since 1980 and before that the only term I knew and the one I used with my patients(I was a nurse) was “injecting”. I’m a bit out of touch with MDI and the terms used now. Thanks so much.

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Great question Susan. The term “bolus” is used to indicate a injection of rapid acting insulin (usually at mealtime) regardless of how it is performed, using an insulin pump or using a syringe. Make sense?

  • babsinny

    these make sad my husband a1c was 9.1 this last appointment. ?

    • babsinny

      Mastering Diabetes he is set in his way. He just eats junk. the sad food he puts in his mouth. l know like this morning his sugar is way off he’s a bear. His parents path is set him on early death. thanks for the support for me it helps when other people listen.

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Yes, I know exactly where you are coming from. If you would like to get on a phone call with us and him, perhaps we could help him understand just how beneficial this process can be for him. Sometimes people need to hear it from someone OTHER than their family and friends to believe it fully. Do you think that would help or is he set in his ways?

    • babsinny

      thanks I wish I had him almost off his meds . he’s type 2. last check his a1c was 6, and now it’s a 9.1. He refuses to eat my way and it break my heart. I know it’s not my choice on his health but when you love someone it’s hard to watch.

    I’ve lost 40 lbs in 2 months on keto, and I’m no longer on insulin (Type 2 diabetic). If I eat fruit (other than berries), my blood sugar goes through the roof. Check out Dr. Eric Berg’s videos on insulin resistance.

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Glad to hear you are doing lots of research and are committed to improving your health. We wish you nothing but success on your journey.

      Thank you for responding. I’m trying to do as much research into my insulin resistance, and see what works. I honestly do not trust a lot of what I’ve been told by my doctors; eat every 3 hours, drink orange juice for potassium, etc. I stopped taking insulin, against my Endocrinologist’s orders, and my blood sugar readings are significantly lower than when I was taking Levemir and Novolog. I think there are many people doing keto who overdo it on fat and neglect the fact that we need 7-10 cups of vegetables/greens daily. I appreciate what you guys are doing and the free information available. 2 months ago I weighed 375 and had a blood pressure of 230/116 when I was rushed to the er. My blood sugar was 303. I want to continue getting better.

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Great work. We know all about Eric Berg, and we like him but the ketogenic diet is fraught with concerns in the long term. We will be writing more on this in the near future. For now, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KWAgKR9JBE&t=177s

    • Mastering Diabetes

      Congrats on your the changes you have seen and the dedication you made to follow a strict program. We are well aware of Dr. Berg’s work and the low-carb experts at large. Your results are expected. But the biggest problem is that you are still insulin resistant. We know this because you would fail an oral glucose tolerance test and glycemic clamp test. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glucose_clamp_technique). You will look good on a HOMA assessment, but if you are truly insulin sensitive, you would pass all three tests for measuring insulin resistance.

      Good diabetes numbers and weight loss does not equal good health. There is a larger picture that needs to be examined.
