My entire family (including my 89 yr old grandmother) have started the E2 diet. We have all watched the video several times, my mom bought the cookbook and we are off to a great start. The first day my grandma was going to back out because she said "I don't want to eat raw kale all the time". We laughed and said give us one meal and then see how you like it. After our first meal she said "let's do this" lol. Thanks for guidance/help in a healthy 2013.

Eating out less. It's expensive and bad for you! Will try to cook more at home and enjoy the leftovers.

I actually just finished reading the Engine 2 Diet and so excited this has come out. This makes things even easier. Would love to try the cereal!

I am a regular customer at Wholefoods and shop there for organic fruits and vegetables. The past year I have made significant changes to my diet by eating a mostly plant-based diet. I woulld like to know more about the Engine 2 products and would enjoy winning a case of the cereal because breakfast is the hardest meal for me to incorporate this lifestyle.

I bought the Engine 2 book, forks over knives and watched all the videos about food. I am trying to get my family switched over to a plant-based diet. Thank you so much for opening our eyes to what has been done to our food system. I am going to be 65 this year, and I took up running. So far I have lost 30 lbs, and I feel like I am 40. I know if I can change my diet and eat healthy, I will be even better than I am now. Thanks again. Patti

I'm in the catering and hospitality industry and food is always in front of me! I love different flavor combinations and until now have not found a diet that offered that. I started the Engine 2 diet today, and started following the week one plan. The meals today were delicious and the wraps I prepped for tomorrow look yummy too. Thank you!

A friend posted on Facebook she had seen Forks Over Knives and was planning to try going vegan. I then watched the video myself, and one thing led to another. I found Rip's companion video about Engine 2 and watched it. I gave up dairy years ago in favor of soy milk as well as beef and pork. I have been semi-vegitarian for over 20 years, eating seafood and occasionally poultry, but now after also watching Food, Inc. and Vegucated, I know I have to finally go all the way to vegan!

I have been using many more whole grains and also fruits dried in my dehydrator. I just purchased 5 lbs of hulled spelt. I'm using it for breakfast cereals, as cracked spelt, and topping it with dried apples. I also like to make my own energy bars with quinoa, amaranth, spelt, rice flour, buckwheat flour, and many more, but I want to do more of it. They have wonderful dates at Whole Foods, and I'm now making more bars that don't need any cooking with the dates, cashew butter, chia seeds, etc. Good for snacking and for breakfast!!1

Before I go to any restaurant, I will research the menu and make a meal request based on ingredients from that menu and I will be assertive, (but friendly), with the staff to make it plant-strong!

My doc just told me yesterday to start healthier eating habits (ie- why I'm perusing the Whole Foods website as America's healthiest grocery store). Any thing that would help start a new change would be very welcome and appreciated. Hopefully 6 months from now will be a new me! :)

I just started this life-style change and I'm excited to see Whole Foods come out with a product that fits this healthy diet approach that you can buy right off the shelf! Hopefully this is the beginning of many

I watched Forks over Knives, then The Engine 2 documentary and knew it was what I needed to do for my health. I looked up recipes and went shopping at Whole Foods. I didn't know about this new food line,but I will be looking for it on my next shopping trip to Whole Foods!! In the next year I hope to see my chronic health proplems dissapear like so many others have. No more high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthrits and sleepless nights. Thank you for the websites, and all of the hard work to help so many!!

I just got the Engine 2 diet and I am going to take the challenge. I just purchased Rip's big Bowl berry cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Delicious. I am also going to stop drinking soda and continue to drink more water.

While I'm not a vegetarian, I'm committing to one day a week to eating all plant based meals. Once I've acheived that, then I'll try it on more days of the week. Gotta start somewhere!

I met Rip last year at a presentation he was doing at Whole Foods. He inspired me to try and stick with a Plant Strong diet. He saved my life.

Recently heard about the Engine 2 diet. I would like to try a new diet.

I have been plant strong since Jan. 1st (have been vegetarian since June of last year). My goal is to run this year, my first full year since having my baby. I am also planning to do my first half marathon in May.

I bought the engine 2 book after watching the forks over knives documentary. I was shocked at how little I really knew about what I ate and what I was putting into my body. Currently, I am trying the 28 day diet change (day 11!) and am amazed how great I feel!
