The Happy Pear Podcast

Welcome! In this week’s episode, we sit down with Ian Machado Garry, a rising star in the world of mixed martial arts, hailing from Ireland. What sets Ian apart? He’s a plant-based athlete.

Episode 138

Ian Machado Garry’s story is nothing short of inspirational. Born and raised in Ireland, he’s not your typical MMA fighter. Ian shares his journey, from his early days on the mat to his transformation into a plant-based athlete. He proves that you can achieve strength and peak performance while following a plant-based diet.

But there’s more to Ian’s story than his fighting skills and dietary choices. In addition to his remarkable journey, we explore Ian’s discipline, his incredible recovery speed, and his ability to prove people wrong by succeeding. His tenacity and resilience are truly inspiring. Ian also shares a heartfelt story about taking time off when his child was born, highlighting the importance of balance in a high-pressure profession.

Whether you’re interested in sports, conscious living, sustainable nutrition, or mental well-being, this episode has something for everyone.

Lots of Love,

Dave & Steve
