In this edition of #NourishYourPassion podcast, we had an amazing discussion with Adam Chaim of Plant Trainers. Adam who is a plant-based advocate and a trainer helping people who wants to transition towards a plant-based lifestyle to achieve one’s health and nutrition goals. Adam himself has gone thru an amazing transformation on his own to achieve the stage where he is right now. Throughout the podcast he have discuss how back in 2011, he found out that he had tumor in one of his kidneys. It turned out to be benign biopsy but lead to the probability of him having a disease called Von-Hippel Landau, a genetic disorder which is characterized by the formation of tumors in different parts of the body, both cancerous and non-cancerous. He was told by his doctors that he wouldn’t live past 40. Seeing his young son and wife (who was pregnant at that time) he took this as an inspiration to make significant changes for his life. He started switching to a plant-based diet which not only made him healthier but also improves his energy and outlook in life.
Later, he decided to get intotriathlons and pushed himself into making this come true. Around May last year, he has completed the Iron Man Texas which has been a goal of his for a long time. With the help of the support from his family, he is currently on the path in completing his new goal which is the UltraBaby which is basically a 3-days stage race. We also discussed the impact of plant-based diet on his training and how it greatly affects his everyday living saying how he felt more energize, having shorter recovery time that also gave him more focus and alertness which leads him in becoming more confident. We discussed how
Adam and his wife have worked with their kids around applying plant-based nutrition to their diet.
