Marc Ramirez witnessed his mother’s battle with diabetes and its devastating complications which ultimately took her life. Resigned to the idea that diabetes was his genetic destiny, he felt hopeless. In 2011 Marc, however, began a plant-based lifestyle and his health greatly improved. He reversed type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. He now strives to inform people about the health benefits of going vegan and how a plant based lifestyle also helps the environment and prevents cruelty to animals.
Marc is a graduate of the University of Michigan where he played football for Bo Schembechler and earned a degree in sports management and communications. He is the president of Chickpea and Bean Inc. and a certified Food for Life instructor.
