Professional athlete-turned-firefighter Rip Esselstyn is used to responding to emergencies.

The Engine 2 Diet Review
The Engine 2 Diet book presents a pretty radical diet–no meat, no artificial foods, no white flour, no white pasta, no dairy, no oil. Yet there is something altogether compelling about the case Rip Esselstyn makes. It sound so logical, so simple. Anyway, I tried The Engine 2 Diet book program. I have to admit I tried it imperfectly in that there were parts I didn’t understand at first. It’s been about 3 weeks after The Engine 2 Diet program. I haven’t been exercising up to his standards, either. But I lost 5 pounds and never spent a minute hungry or feeling deprived.
But I’m getting hardcore right now not because of the weight loss, but because I feel fabulous. I had no idea how bad I felt until now. I’m not kidding my frequent headaches are all but gone, no more GI troubles, no more aches and pains. My energy level is increasing. The recipes in The Engine 2 Diet book are different but really great. Love the “Big Bowl,” “Sloppy Joes,” and “Fajitas” but be prepared–you have to be willing to start buying different foods (lots of produce) and cooking for yourself. But the recipes are quick and easy and very tasty.
I am totally sold on The Engine 2 Diet. This is the first and only book review I have ever done here at Amazon and I did it because I’m just an ordinary woman living in Texas who tried this diet and discovered improved health instead of mere weight loss.
