“The most basic, profound, and powerful way to take care of your health on a day-to-day basis is to eat a healthy, plant-based diet. This regimen is the best way to fight the dangerous fires raging inside us—fires that create all the chronic Western ailments including heart attack, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes. That’s why I created the Engine 2 Diet, and why I wrote this book.”
~ Rip Esselstyn from The Engine 2 Diet
Rip Esselstyn is an amazing guy.
He’s a former All-American swimmer and professional triathlete-turned-firefighter who’s super passionate about educating and motivating people “to eat a plant-strong diet so they can enhance their lives and avoid the common killer diseases.”
His dad, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is an Olympic gold medalist and one of the world’s leading medical doctors who literally wrote the book on preventing and reversing heart disease (see Notes on Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease). Between the two of them, they’re doing some incredible work to make a profound difference in the world. In my mind, they’re true heroes.
Packed with everything from the science behind the Engine 2 Diet to an effective exercise program plus over 125 (!) recipes, this book is a REALLY cool guide for a “normal” person to transition away from the foods that’re killing us to create a healthy, plant-based lifestyle.
If you’ve been looking for a guidebook to help you make the transition to more healthy eating but have felt overwhelmed about how to do it, I think you might really love this easy-to-read, super practical book!! So, if you’re feelin’ it, go pick it up and get your 28-Day Engine 2 Challenge on! (And lemme know how it goes! :)
For now, let’s jump in!
