005. World's First Vegan Summit Of Everest With Kuntal Joisher


160 km/h winds, temperatures well below freezing point, oxygen levels not supportive of human life and looming avalanches.. these all sound like good reasons to stay away from such a place.

Yet our today’s Guest is someone who keeps going back for more, even though he gets caught in an avalanche, completely certain he is about to die..

His passion and obsession for the mountains, and his commitment to the vegan movement has led him off the comforts of his 9-5 job as a software engineer to summiting the highest place on Earth, Mount Everest.

Who is Dan Rémi

Dan Rémi profile picture

I’m an online plant-based fitness coach who quit his full time medical doctor gig to prevent people from becoming patients in the first place.

I’m the guy they come to when they want to end their frustrations, and gain clarity over how to achieve their health & fitness goals  - and keep it for life. No diet fads & "quick fixes" in this household.

I help them create a tailored flexible routine towards their goals that they can sustain even when life gets in the way, so they can sustainably lose the fat, build muscle & feel amazing on plants.

As a medical doctor, CrossFit athlete (transformed from very skinny), and after having coached hundreds 1-on-1 towards health & fitness independence since 2014, I have created a unique adaptable coaching system that gets people results every time.
