Cyrus Khambatta, PhD is an internationally recognized nutrition and fitness coach for people living with type 1 diabetes, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, and is the founder of Mangoman Nutrition and Fitness, LLC and the co-founder of Mastering Diabetes, LLC.
Cyrus was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2002, in his final year of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. Cyrus disregarded the advice of his medical team and instead transitioned to a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet after one year of living with diabetes. In the first 6 months, his insulin use decreased by 40% even though his carbohydrate intake increased by 5-fold.
Together with his co-founder Robby Barbaro, Cyrus developed an evidence-based nutrition and fitness program to reverse insulin resistance across all forms of diabetes, and has helped thousands of people around the world reduce their blood glucose, oral medication and insulin use.
