3 years ago, I had a massive out of hospital cardiac arrest, I was saved by 2 off duty Doctors who applied CPR and defibrillator worked 2nd time! A stent was applied to my LAD, I awoke from a coma! I'm alive. I fought back, went on a strict diet avoided any processed foods for 3 years, lost weight and during that process trained like an animal, bike rides, swims, runs for hours. I then decided to enter an Ironman in Nice, France 4km ocean swim, 185km mountain bike ride and a marathon the worlds toughest 1 day sports event. I finished! My ankle tendinitis kicked at mile 3 my last 23 miles was a killer but I managed 4hrs15mins marathon.
I hope to inspire others, what I couldn't believe is that a 72 year old man completed this Ironman in the gruelling heat. There's always hope if your believe.
I still take medicine, but I'm a true believer that food from the earth is the bodies important ingredient.
Below is a list of foods I eat this will help others:
veges, chickpeas, fruits, lean meat only and organic if possible from butchers once or twice a week, fish especially sardines, mackerel, salmon. Nuts, raw only almonds, walnuts and cashews. Eggs (never fried), lentils, cocoa, beans, whole rice, olive oil but never salad dressings, cinnamon, turmeric in morning porridge, whole meal pasta ( much never jars of sauce instead chopped tomatoes), greek yogurt only, honey........my stomach hates processed foods I now feel sick when I have pringles for example, avoided any juices from supermarket too high in sugar go eat 2 oranges, only really ate goats cheese but any cheese is ok is little portions), almond/soy/oat/coconut milk only, had drinking yogurts the little ones. Goodbye alcohol no thanks, with celebrations are ok.
will think of more.....
Believe! we can fight together.
