Rip Esselstyn, a Texas Firefighter, has developed a "28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan that Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds." It's motto, "Eat More, Lose More, is particularly appealing to me, being someone who is excessively dedicated to food consumption.
What is profound about this book is that it will teach you how to eat right, how to eliminate all the foods and substances getting in the way of optimal physical and emotional health, while at the same time providing you with no sense of sacrifice, the end of guilt and shame, immeasurable epicurean pleasure in terms of food and drink, renewed energy and vigor, happiness, and a tremendous sense of self-empowerment.
The Engine 2 Diet details the advantages of a plant-strong diet, particularly in terms of losing weight effortlessly, decreasing cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes, eliminating diabetes, and avoiding cancers and chronic debilitating illnesses.
The Engine 2 Diet also provides a series of physical exercises which address the cardiovascular system and the muscular system, all designed to maximize one's physical condition, stamina and vitality, and all of which can be done in the comfort of your own home without stairmasters, weights or pulleys.
A third section of the book is devoted to mouth-watering recipes that will make you marvel at the culinary delights (breakfast, lunches, dinners, and desserts) which are possible with the creative use of 100% healthy ingredients. I just finished preparing my first Rip Esselstyn recipe, "Vegetable Stir Fry with Brown Rice," which had Karla and Maxcy begging for more. It was delicious. It was better than the stir fry I paid for at an excellent restaurant I visited a few days ago.
There are many books on the market that talk about health, diet and exercise but very few put them all together in a program that is easy to understand, easy to believe, easy to do, and highly motivating.
Do yourself a favor. Grab a copy of Rip's book. And watch your world get better.
