After pursuing a career in the music industry and getting married, his family was faced with a health crisis, which required him to find a job that provided health insurance to cover mounting medical bills. In 2012, Milan walked away from his career in music and took a position with Whole Foods Market. This fateful decision changed not only Milan’s life but also the life of each member of his family.
As an overweight individual, Milan was intrigued by the health retreat offered by Whole Foods to its employees in need. He soon applied and was accepted. After attending Dr. Stoll's Immersion program in 2013, Milan lost over two hundred and twenty-five pounds. The story of his dramatic transformation broke nationally on the cover of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine. It has since been featured in several national magazines and highlighted in the feature-length documentary film Eating You Alive. In addition, Milan has developed his own organic health food line, Full Flavor Vegan (www.fullflavorvegan.com).
Today, through his many speaking engagements across the United States, Milan has made it his life's mission to help people attain optimal health and change their lives.
