ⓋEGAN + PACEMAKER POWER -- Medtronic dual-ventricular cardiac pacemaker, fueled by high carb, low fat, low protein, plant based nutrition. Ⓥ Train and eat smart, monitor your heart.
MY STORY... I never thought I would ride my bicycle again. I was on a low-carb (Atkins diet) trying to lose a few pounds. It was 2010 while on a training ride that I collapsed alongside of the road with third-degree heart block. Pacemaker implant surgery followed and today I'm 100% pacemaker dependent. I never gave up, I continued to fuel my cycling obsession with daily training rides on my mountain bike. Since my pacemaker was implanted I'm blessed and proud that I have been able to ride over 20,000 miles and climb over 2 million feet of elevation gain. In July of 2015 I changed to plant-based (vegan) nutrition and have found great success both on and off the bicycle. I went back to school and received my certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University. If you’re looking to lose weight and better your performance on the bicycle, plant-based is the the way to go. I have experienced a long list of health benefits by going plant-based.
