Ian Cramer, a competitive cyclist, is passionate about spreading the message that diet and lifestyle dramatically affect individual health as well as the health of the planet. For Ian, this reality speaks of encouragement. He motivates others and is motivated himself, by the simple yet challenging concept that maintaining good health and peak performance involve making good choices. Likewise, chronic disease may be reversed or prevented when these good choices, that are easily and economically available, become the norm everyday.
Ian is an allied health care professional with degrees in Kinesiology and athletic training. Beyond his day job, he's a public lecturer and produces an interview-based podcast. Driven by knowledge, evidence and civil discourse, he created The Ian Cramer Podcast. With a mission to interview doctors and scholars of lifestyle medicine and plant-based nutrition, Ian's unwavering focus in his podcast is to learn more, disseminate this information to a larger audience, educate lay-people and the medical community and change the world by leading in positive and responsible ways.
In June 2015, he and a group of three friends from Ohio rode their bikes across the country in what's known as The Race Across America. Supported by a full crew, Team Oxford Autoimmune completed the 3200-mile journey in 7 days 16 hours and 27 minutes. For Ian, the estimated 6000 miles of training and racing for the event were all done on a plant-based diet. He continues to race and ride recreationally in Rochester, New York.
