I’m sure you’ve seen the firefighters at the grocery store or Costco, buying their food for dinner, maybe flirting with a few women in the produce aisle. It’s part of their job, it should be in their job description. Everyone loves a firefighter, you can’t deny that!
You don’t understand, my husband NEVER reads for pleasure. EVER! So when he bought AND read the “Engine 2 Diet” cover to cover, I about fell over in my chair! I figured it had to be good to keep his attention so I read it too. It’s information I’ve been learning about for years so it wasn’t anything new for me but it was an excellent book.
Real men eat plants… that’s what Firefighter and author of “The Engine 2 Diet” claims… and so did his entire crew once they learned how much their newly adopted plant-based diet improved their health. One of the guys had a cholesterol level of 350! Not that I’m surprised, do you have any idea how firemen eat?
Rip Esselstyn is his name, he’s a former professional triathlete turned firefighter.
He took first place in many major events, including the 2001 Police and Fire World Games, the world’s largest athletic competition. He also won the Capital of Texas triathlon eight times and was the leader and top-three finisher at many televised events, including the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, where he was first out of the frigid, shark-infested waters six years in a row. Rip still competes in various events, recently winning the master national championships and setting the national record in the process.
His father, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, chief of surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, discovered through medical research that a plant-based, low-fat diet could reverse heart disease and diabetes. I have to say, I believe him.
Anyways, if you are looking for a great book to read I recommend it… and so does my husband!Tags: althetic, book, Caldwell, Costco, Engine 2, Engine 2 Diet, firefighter, heart disease, medical research, Rip Esselstyn, triathlon
