Plant-based experts MPH Robby Barbaro and Ph.D. Cyrus Khambatta have hit New York Time's Bestsellers list* with their book Mastering Diabetes.
The duo, who were both previously diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, promote a 'carbohydrate rich diet' opposed to 'current medical guidelines, which advises those with diabetes to eat a low-carb, high-fat diet'.
Their method is said to decrease overall chronic disease as well as maximize life expectancy for people living with Type 1, Type 1.5, Type 2, Prediabetes, and Gestational Type Diabetes.
In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Barbaro said: "[We're] incredibly grateful for so much support from the plant-based community; incredibly grateful for all our clients who are living, breathing examples of how effective the Mastering Diabetes Method truly is at reversing insulin resistance.
"Our small but mighty community is well on its way to changing the paradigm of how diabetes is treated."
'Food as medicine'
Cyrus, who said he wanted to become a top-selling author since he was a child, added: "Now that we're officially New York Times bestsellers, it’s surreal and still hasn't quite sunk in yet. The most important thing about becoming a bestseller is that this status will help this book permeate society farther, by reaching more book stores, more online outlets, and more media.
"Robby and I care most about teaching people the truth about diabetes and providing them with the tools to make lifestyle changes that actually work.
"This book contains everything that someone with any form of diabetes requires to maximize their metabolic health using their food as medicine."
*Mastering Diabetes currently ranks sixth on the New York Times Bestsellers list 'Advice, How-to and Miscellaneous'.
