Charles Mattocks's desire -- and need -- to create meals that were tasty, nutritious, and affordable led to his career as "The Poor Chef."
Multiple appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox News The Talk, Martha Stewart, CBS TV, CNN and Dr. Oz gave him the opportunity to share what he had learned about feeding a family for less money.
Then came devastating news; Charles was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.
He was determined to save his life and knew he had to help others do the same. "The Diabetic You" documentary, website, and movement came out of that determination to educate and inspire people around the world.
A tireless advocate for diabetics everywhere, Charles is determined to help stem the tide of this deadly disease.
Listen as Charles shares his personal journey as a chef and diabetic, as well as insights from his television show and book, The Budget-Friendly Fresh & Local Diabetes Cookbook.
