Individuals following Engine 2 adopt a whole food, nutrient-dense, Plant-Strong way of eating and experience a vast variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. In addition to its cardiovascular benefits, Engine 2 can control glucose levels, reduce cholesterol, help maintain normal weight and increase overall energy and well-being.

For this month’s club meeting we’ll discuss The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn. When Esselstyn, a professional athlete-turned-firefighter, learned that some of his fellow Austin-based Engine 2 firefighters were encountering health challenges and pitfalls, he sprang into action. His program generated some dramatic results and improved his colleagues' overall health, and the proven plan is outlined in his book--a guide that can transform your body and lifestyle in a month.
