About Robby

"My name is Robby and I am the cofounder of Mastering Diabetes and the founder of Mindful Diabetic. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12, and embraced a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet 4 years after my diagnosis. To this day, adopting this lifestyle has been one of the best decisions of my life, and since that fateful day my hemoglobin A1c value has never exceeded 6.4%. I graduated from the University of Florida in 2011 and worked at Forks Over Knives for 6 years before turning my attention to coaching people with diabetes full time.

I enjoy exercising every day, spending time with friends and sharing my lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Helping people with diabetes has gone from a desire to a true passion, and I love inspiring others to achieve excellent health."
