"I've known Rip for more than 20 years. In that time, he's been a great motivator for so many people. This terrific book will inspire all who read it to change their lives and optimize their health." -Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, seven-time Tour de France champion
Lose weight, lower cholesterol, significantly reduce the risk of disease, and become physically fit--in just 4 weeks.
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 your expert coach and motivator, you'll transform your 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. This invaluable guide features: **Dozens of easy, mouthwatering recipes-from pancakes to pizza, Tex-Mex favorites to knockout chocolate desserts-that will keep you 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 you to eat out, wherever and whenever you want **Rip's simple, firefighter-inspired exercise program that will boost your metabolism and melt your fat away.
Medically approved, easy-to-follow, and amazingly effective," " this diet is designed for anyone who wants to make heroic strides in his or her health, weight, and well-being-all without heroic effort.
"Want to be as strong as a Texas firefighter? Or as healthy as a professional triathlete? Then follow the wonderful advice of Rip Esselstyn, who is both. His book can save your life--whether you're a man or a woman. Highly recommended " -Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Clinical Professor of Medicine, U of CaliforniaSF, author, "Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease"

I think if U are really trying to lower your cholestrol ,blood pressure,even diabetic levels this is the book for U. I think over taking Meds for a long period of time. U can make a drastic change in lowering your #'s,educating yourself on how to eat and what to avoid. This is why I purchased this book. I do not know if I can do it strictly long term, meaning(on going ) but I can lower my #'s and hopefully get off medication. This is my goal anyway.To be more Pro active,and knowledable in my over all health care.

My husband is type 2 diabetic and has high blood pressure. We were looking for a way of life to help him get off medication and improve our overall health. After reading Rip Esselstyn's book, it gave us the incentive to try the vegan method. We have been on the vegan way of life for only about a month and have each lost about 10 lbs so far and we are not ever hungry. The recipes in his book are excellent. Rip gives you his story, educates you on the benefits of eating a plant based diet, gives recipes, and an exercise program for beginners to advanced. He is a triathlon champion, champion swimmer, and firefighter. He exposes the myths about being a vegan. If you want to improve your health, have energy and lose weight, this book is for you.
