Healthy living is something I am passionate about. At the age of 15, I became a Vegetarian. At the age of 17, I became a Vegan. Between the ages of 25 and 28 I ate mostly Raw foods. Needless to say, diet and nutrition have always been a huge part of my life, but now that I am a full-time athlete, nutrition IS my life. What I put in my body is what fuels me before, during, and after races, workouts, training sessions, and even on rest days.
In February 2015 I sought advise from a well-known local nutritionist at Remedy’s Nutrition in Key Largo. Mostly about getting some higher quality protein. What I got in return has been so much more. Gene Lentz, or the “Guru” as we like to call him, gave me a full consultation including blood, hair tissue, and biometric analysis. He now writes for me a full supplementation program as well as gives plenty of advise on how to get what I need from my diet. I have learned so much from my consultations, but the proof is in the numbers. Gene is a former professional athlete and Tennis pro himself. When I told him I was going for a World Record attempt, he knew exactly what to do. Through his programing, in 6 months I have dropped 4.5% body fat and gained 13lbs of lean muscle with absolutely no change in body weight. Gene fully supports my choice to be a Vegan and has never once asked me to start eating meat, although he did tell me to start cooking my food so that I can eat enough calories to support the muscle that I am putting on.
People often see my body and my performance levels and ask about diet and nutrition. My answer is always that it is a combination of diet AND lifestyle choices that create who we are. I have put in a lot of hard work, dedication, sweat, and discipline to get where I am today, but I owe a huge thank you to Remedy’s for helping me every step of the way.
Whether you are an elite athlete or just someone with dietary questions or health concerns, nutrition can be the key to unlocking a more powerful you.
