The Mastering Diabetes Program


Maximize your insulin sensitivity using low-fat, plant-based, whole-food nutrition


Are you ready to take FULL control of your diabetes health?

As people who have struggled with fluctuating blood glucose, low energy, poor digestion, anxiety and a lack of credible evidence-based information, we understand what it is like to feel out of control.

We also understand the feeling of empowerment when you learn how to take full control of your health once again.

Yes, it takes hard work and determination, but we have turned our lives around using the power of low-fat, plant-based, whole-food nutrition and have coached thousands of people through life-changing transformations.

Now it’s time for YOU to take back your health

Conventional Medicine Has Diabetes Nutrition Backwards

If you’ve ever been disappointed by the advice your doctor gave you about what to eat living with diabetes, join the club. Perhaps you’ve been misled that a low-carbohydrate diet is the optimal solution for your long-term diabetes health, or have experimented with a ketogenic diet and experienced decreasing energy levels and increasing oral medication and insulin needs - we hear you.

You may have been told that carbohydrates and insulin are your enemy living with type 1 diabetes. You may have also been told that type 2 diabetes is irreversible, or that you will need to take more and more medications over the course of time.

No matter how you slice it, conventional medicine doesn't fully understand diabetes nutrition

That’s exactly what we were told when we were first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and after conventional medicine failed both of us, we decided to take matters into our own hands and create a program that maximizes your insulin sensitivity, turbocharges your energy levels, and puts the power in YOUR hands once again.

A New Approach to Understanding Diabetes

Welcome to a new perspective on optimizing your diabetes health, backed by more than 85 years of evidence-based scientific research. We invite you to take one step backwards to the root cause of variable blood glucose - insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance is present in all forms of diabetes, including type 1 diabetes, type 1.5 diabetes, prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes, and is responsible for the hard-to-control blood glucose values that make your life difficult.

By targeting the root cause of your fluctuating blood glucose, you can reverse insulin resistance using your diet, and experience the best health you’ve ever had in your life with diabetes. By maximizing your insulin sensitivity, you can lose weight, gain energy, and control your blood glucose with precision...for the first time in years.

Maximizing your insulin sensitivity is the key to maximizing your diabetes health

Can you imagine what your life would look like if your blood glucose, weight, energy levels, and digestion were under your control? Can you imagine what would happen if you reversed neuropathy, improved your vision, and minimized your risk for diabetes complications, all by eating the healthiest foods on the planet?
