"I've known Rip for more than 20 years. In that time, he's been a great motivator for so many people. This terrific book will inspire all who read it to change their lives and optimize their health." -Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, seven-time Tour de France champion

Lose weight, lower cholesterol, significantly reduce the risk of disease, and become physically fit--in just 4 weeks.

Professional athlete-turned-firefighter Rip Esselstyn is used to responding to emergencies. So, when he learned that some of his fellow Engine 2 firefighters in Austin, TX, were in dire physical condition-several had dangerously high cholesterol levels (the highest was 344!)-he sprang into action and created a life-saving plan for the firehouse. By following Rip's program, everyone lost weight (some more than 20 lbs.), lowered their cholesterol (Mr. 344's dropped to 196), and improved their overall health. Now, Rip outlines his proven plan in this book. With Rip as your expert coach and motivator, you'll transform your body and lifestyle in a month. His plant-powered eating plan is based on a diet of whole foods, including whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. This invaluable guide features: **Dozens of easy, mouthwatering recipes-from pancakes to pizza, Tex-Mex favorites to knockout chocolate desserts-that will keep you looking forward to every bite **Pantry-stocking tips will take the panic out of inevitable cravings and on-the-fly meals **Guidelines on menu choices that will allow you to eat out, wherever and whenever you want **Rip's simple, firefighter-inspired exercise program that will boost your metabolism and melt your fat away.

Medically approved, easy-to-follow, and amazingly effective, this diet is designed for anyone who wants to make heroic strides in his or her health, weight, and well-being-all without heroic effort.

From the Publisher:
A professional triathlete-turned-firefighter shares a diet he devised for fellow firefighters to help them lose weight and lower their cholesterol levels, an eating regime that transitions participants to a mostly vegetable diet also consisting of whole grains, legumes, and small portions of meat.A professional triathlete-turned-firefighter shares a diet he devised for fellow firefighters to help them lose weight and lower their cholesterol levels, an eating regimen that transitions participants to a mostly vegetable diet also consisting of whole grains, legumes, and small portions of meat.
Annotation:
Rip Esselstyn shares the special four-week diet program that changed the lives of his fellow firefighters in Austin. When the former triathlete became aware that his colleagues had serious health issues--including high cholesterol--he introduced a diet based primarily on plants. He also coached them daily, with tips on nutrition and lifestyle, along with exercises that boosted their metabolism. In time, the guys in Engine 2 showed weight loss and better numbers. THE ENGINE 2 DIET includes many creative recipes for foods people will actually eat, many based on whole foods, fruits and vegetables, and nuts. It also includes advice for stocking the cupboard with good eats rather than junk. Esselstyn's common-sense plan, along with his special qualities as a coach and motivator, helped make THE ENGINE 2 DIET a best seller in the crowded diet book category.
