Rip Esselstyn

Rip Esselstyn has saved many lives as a firefighter. Now he is saving millions more with The Engine 2 Diet- his groundbreaking nutritional program with indisputable, dramatic results in lowering cholesterol and losing weight in just 4 weeks! The Engine 2 Diet was created and implemented by Rip, a former world-class professional triathlete and the son, grandson and great-grandson of renowned physicians, after he discovered the dangerously high cholesterol level (344!) of one of his fellow firefighters at the Austin (TX) Engine 2 Station. The results of his revolutionary, plant-based diet were so dramatic – and the food so delicious and easy-to-prepare -- that Rip’s program received media coverage at the time on NPR, in the New York Times and in several newspapers across the country. He has since appeared on the Today Show and CBS Morning. Rip’s website is www.theengine2diet.com.
