The 28-Day Engine 2 Challenge Intro Class
Thursday, October 2nd
7:00 PM
Lifestyle Center, FREE
The 28-Day Engine 2 Challenge is a plant-strong way of eating based on the best-selling book, The Engine 2 Diet. The main idea is to incorporate more whole plant foods into your meals to support your heart, your mind, your body and your taste buds! Those who follow the program often lose weight and see their health improve in just 28 days! Intro to the 28-Day Engine 2 Challenge This life-changing program was developed by professional triathlete and firefighter Rip Esselstyn. Esselstyn brought a plant-based diet into his Texas firehouse to save the life of a fellow firefighter whose cholesterol level had hit a dangerous high of 344. In the process, the young man nearly cut that number in half. In fact, the entire engine company lost weight and improved its health in a matter of just 28 days. In this intro class, you’ll learn the approach those firemen took, plus how you can take the challenge yourself with the support of The Engine 2 Diet book, Healthy Eating Specialist Camille, and other health-minded members of the community!
