Cyrus and Robbie are absolute diabetes gurus. If you need extra help in the form of coaching, I highly recommend their paid coaching program. They also host a free annual life-changing Mastering Diabetes Summit, which I also recommend purchasing if you can't wait for the free round to start again!
"A week that will go down in your personal history book as the most life-changing, life-affirming seven days you've ever experienced. And it all starts with the food." This challenge accompanies the book, and comes with added support in the form of a Facebook group, listed above.
Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen app (nutritionfacts.org) provides a super easy checklist-style approach to food tracking. Unlike those negative, guilt-producing calorie counting apps, the Daily Dozen helps you focus on seeking out healthy foods to eat vs. scaring you into avoiding "bad" food items. By choosing more of the whole foods he recommends, you will naturally phase out unhealthy foods with very little effort. I can't recommend it enough!
This app will guide you, step-by-step, into a plant-based diet in just 3 weeks! The program is free, available in both English and Spanish, and features hundreds of healthy recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, expert nutrition advice, cooking demonstrations, and more!
This app covers nearly 100 diseases and conditions, including risk factors, diagnoses, and typical treatments, along with guidelines to discuss dietary changes from the physician and patient perspective. It also includes in-depth examinations of general nutrition, macronutrients, micronutrients, and nutritional requirements for all stages of life.
