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 the expert coach and motivator, acolytes swear that it's possible to transform one's 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. The term "plant-based diet" is easier to understand than the term "vegan," and focuses on the vast number and variety of plant foods available, instead of the foods that people perceive they will be giving up. 

This book features: **Dozens of easy, mouthwatering recipes-from pancakes to pizza, Tex-Mex favorites to knockout chocolate desserts-that will keep followers 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 anyone to eat out **Rip's simple, firefighter-inspired exercise program that will boost metabolism and melt fat away.

E2 introduces two 28-day diet plans, one called the "Fire Cadet," which eases into the program gradually, and a more rapid approach called the "Firefighter," which goes full-bore from the first day. The end result of both diets is the same, with the only difference being the pace.
