Those of you that have been readers for sometime will know that I am not a fan of "Diets" or diet food, plans, or supplements. I am a fan of just one plan, the one thing that proved to be the tool that allowed me to get to where I am today..... A changed lifestyle, more specifically: eating less, eating better, and being more physically active.
That being the case, I am strongly against providing a presence for any products, books, write ups, or links to items that do not fit in the above mindset. I have turned down some of each of these, including paid links.
That being said, I have received a pre-release version of THE ENGINE 2 DIET book. I have to admit at first the title turned me off because of the word "Diet" but once reading more about the book I became more willing to give it a chance. I know by starting to understand more about it the book is based on a mostly plant based diet which I am not a fan of..... I like meat too much :) but I have started reading the book and will be better equipped to give my opinion in a couple weeks.
Here is some more information about the book:
When Rip Esselstyn and some of his fellow Engine 2 firefighters from Austin, TX realized that their cholesterol levels were higher than they'd like he decided to do something about it. He created THE ENGINE 2 DIET program and in 28-days everyone lost weight, lowered his cholesterol, and improved his overall health. Rip decided to do a larger study to prove the effectiveness of his plan--not just for firefighters but for everyone.
THE ENGINE 2 DIET is a lifestyle that begins with a 28-day program that will enable readers to lose weight, reduce the precursors to disease, and become physically fit. It's a clear-cut guide to eating a whole-food, nutrient-rich, mostly plant-based diet.
THE ENGINE 2 DIET also includes recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, cooking tips, and a firefighter-inspired exercise program to boost metabolism, build strength and endurance.
As a fireman Rip has helped people and saved lives, but with his Engine 2 Diet Plan he will help save lives on a much larger scale.
