After reading your book and the 21day kickstart by Dr Barnard, I became a vegan. My daughter and son-in-law already were. Changes? Educate others about the dangers of the American diet, but only if asked. It's fairly evident that I'm healthier:) One can always eat better. One change is to soak beans and cook them- no more canned for me. And, make steel cut oats at night to reheat in the morning.

I've been happily vegan for almost a year. I'd love to try and run a half marathon!

Continue into my 3rd year of a plant based diet. Rip's book is an inspiration!

I am trying to get back to eating a healthier diet. A number of very stressful and time-consuming situations affected my life this past year. They also disrupted my healthy diet. I make most of my own meals , including breakfast , from scratch. It would certainly be nice to eat a healthy breakfast from a box.

I took the Engine 2 challenge last summer and dropped the last few pounds. I'd like to get back on it 100% after the holiday indulgences.

E2 has changed my life. I have never felt better, mentally and physically. I am so happy their food line is at whole foods!

If love to try Rip's Big Bowl. I've been a vegetarian for the last 2 years and slowing trying to make the switch to 100% plant strong. Looking to doing an immersion in 2013 to help build the proper foundation. Thanks for all you do!

With the new year, I'm am going away from processed foods and going plant strong. Health starts here eating the right way. What you put into your body is what you are going to get out of it. I have already incorporated E2 cereal, tortilla's and hummus.

I vow to try things I have never eaten before in 2013 in an effort to be healthier. Why? Because my fortune cookie tonight read: If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten Bring on the Engine 2! ;-)

I'm going to eat much less meat and eat much more plants. After watching a documentary about America's food industry (Food, Inc.) and reading books about Americans' diets (The Omnivore's Dilemma, Fast Food Nation), I have gradually become more determined to decrease my meat intake, purchase meat that are organic, that came from animals that were raised humanely and sustainably, and to increase my plant intake. I'm not going to adopt a completely vegetarian/vegan lifestyle; instead, I plan on purchasing and consuming foods coming from natural, organic, sustainable, and humane sources while becoming less dependent on animal products for nutrients.

I am so excited about the new E2 products! I have been vegan for several years and now just need to refine my diet to make it plant strong. I sometimes still eat sugar and the occasional bit of oil. My goal is to eliminate them from my diet.

I'm going to start moving more in 2013....I'm 50 years old and I see how you need to move more in order to keep your weight at where it should be for health reasons. I'm at my highest weight and even though I don't look terrible, I want to get a start on getting back down to the best weight for me and a height of 5'2".

For Christmas, my mom received the DVD of Dr. Esselstyn's reversing heart disease, which we all watched that evening. It really opened my eyes on how much our diet really plays a part in our overall health. Since my whole family agrees that reducing or even cutting out meat from our diet would benefit us all, we allmade a pact to eat more vegetables and less mean and will become our own large support group in keeping each other on track. We know it won't be easy after eating the standard American diet for so long, but everyone's willingness to change can only mean more likelihood of success.

About 8 months ago, I went to a seminar where Rip and his parents spoke. I changed my diet that day and have been 100% vegetarian and 90% vegan ever since. I love the way a plant strong diet makes me feel and can't imagine ever going back. I am SO excited about Rip's new products and can't wait for our Whole Foods to carry them!
