In this unusual episode of The Mojo Fit Podcast, nutritional biochemist, Cyrus Khambatta and I discuss polar opposite views on approaches to nutrition for reversing pre-diabetes and type-2 diabetes, and the root cause, which is insulin resistance. We discuss High Fat Low Carb, versus High Carb Low Fat – with a few similarities of methods to reverse inflammation - the cause of insulin resistance. Insulin Resistance is also the root cause of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This is not to be missed – take notes!
