Charles Mattocks        

Celebrity Chef Known as "The Poor Chef;" Diabetes Awareness Advocate

Each career move Celebrity Chef Mattocks has made has been in keeping with his desire to touch lives in a positive way. Inspired by his uncle, the late Bob Marley, Mattocks dared to dream big. After giving a stunning performance in the title role of the Emmy nominated "The Summer of Ben Tyler," Mattocks could have continued as a successful actor. Instead this single dad decided the Hollywood lifestyle was not the best for his young son and moved across the country.

His need to create meals that were tasty, nutritious, and affordable led to his career as "The Poor Chef." Appearances on "The Today Show," "Good Morning America," "Martha Stewart," CNN and "Dr. Oz" gave him the opportunity to share what he had learned about feeding a family for less money. He became a sought after guest on local and regional radio and television stations. Once again he achieved success.

Then came devastating news - Mattocks had type 2 diabetes. Reading all he could about the disease made him all too aware of how little he actually had known about 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. He is doing just that. From appearances on CNN, "The Today Show," "Anderson Cooper," "Good Morning America" and scores of other TV shows and radio programs across the country, to interviews in Huffington Post, Diabetes Health, Forecast Diabetes, his regular blog on the Dr. Oz website, and more, the world is learning about Mattocks' war against diabetes. He developed a diabetic-friendly, gluten free treat called the "Charles Bar" that is in national distribution. Mattocks has also teamed up with Shire and is on a national RV testing tour he created that is going across the country to educate people about diabetes foot complications.

He is committed to providing free health testing for people from Orlando to Atlanta and beyond. His RV Testing Tour will appear at fairs, sporting events, malls and other venues. During a recent humanitarian trip to India, Mattocks helped test thousands for diabetes. In September he was a featured speaker at a prestigious TEDx conference in San Francisco. A blue ribbon champion for the International Diabetes Federation and spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association, Mattocks has just written their next cookbook. A tireless advocate for diabetics everywhere, Mattocks is determined to help stem the time of this deadly disease. He is also wrapping up his diabetes documentary entitled "The Diabetic You" and has just shot and is selling the first diabetes reality TV show entitled "Reversed." The best is yet to come as Mattocks is traveling the world and creating programs in other islands and countries. A voice and a force for serious change, he will shake up the health industry.
