3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
In this DVD, Texas firefighter and nutrition guru Rip Esselstyn visits two families and shows them how to cook a breakfast, lunch and dinner using recipes from the "Engine 2 Diet". They also go shopping and he shows the families what to look for in grocery store products. While an acceptable made-for-TV "hour" program of just over 50 minutes, it could have been so much more. This low budget production is so much less substantial than the 20 year "China Study", the" Forks Over Knives" documentary, or even Rip's father's book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease". The DVD was clearly shot over a few of days and edited together quickly to get the DVD out while the "Engine 2 Diet" and "Forks Over Knives" remain hot items.

The instruction given to the families is minimal and the long term outcome is never addressed. Rip shows the families how to prepare only three daily meals. Four children stand by as Rip discards their "Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cereal" but then this program never shows how they fared months later. How much of what he advocates did they really find success with and what remained a challenge? Did the children really go from Froot Loops to fresh fruit for breakfast so easily? Can they transition from the "meat lovers pizza" to a "broccoli and nutritional yeast pizza" without complaint? This kind of superficial "reality" seems hard to swallow. One of the more convincing elements in the "Forks Over Knives" documentary is how quickly the effects of this diet can be observed in the blood tests of the subjects. Even this kind of follow up is not seen in "The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue". It simply feels like the producers wanted to spend days not months or years on this project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kick Start to a Plant Strong Lifestyle December 23, 2011
So I've watched Food Inc, Food Matters, King of Corn, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, Forks Over Knives and any other documentary I can get my hands on. I love all of them but I've had a hard time getting into the plant based diet because I've been intimidated by the recipes. A lot of the ingredients are new to me such as nutritional yeast flakes, tofu, tamari, tempeh, seitan and several vegetables I haven't explored yet. I immediately bought The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue when it came available on and watched it last night. It gave me the kick start I needed to live the plant strong lifestyle. This morning I cleaned out my fridge as well as my pantry and plan to head to Whole Foods this afternoon to stock my house with the Kitchen Must Haves provided on the website. A new year is approaching and I plan on taking advantage of the 28 day challenge to get the year started right. The DVD isn't very long but I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to see how easy it is to eat a plant based diet. Rip if you ever want to come to Chicago and teach me how to cook more recipes for a second DVD please let me know!! We have a two story Whole Foods that you would love!

The Engine 2 Diet will change your life! I've been eating plant strong for over 3 months and I've never felt better. I have much better energy, I'm sleeping better, and all my lab tests are amazing.

If you've already read Rip's book, this DVD will offer you a solid refresher in cooking and shopping for eating plant-strong. I found a few great recipes and demos really helpful as well.

If you're new to the diet, this is a fantastic quick start on what to clear out of your kitchen, what to buy in the grocery store, and how to cook for true health and wellness. I'm giving this as a gift to family members who are just getting started and I think it will really help them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing since "whole" grain sliced bread! December 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
This journey for me started almost 4 months ago when I quit smoking. Like many other fans, I watched the documentary Forks Over Knives which than led me to Rip. What I love about Rip's approach is that it is stripped down by a healthy, hard working man that speaks like the rest of us. I ordered the Engine 2 diet book which was full of information but when I saw this dvd available for pre-order I jumped on it!

it is a great concept of walking 2 families thru cleaning out their pantry, shopping, reading & understanding labels and finally cooking great meals! Dr. Caldwell & Rip Esselstyn have reached Mac product status for me. Anything they sell.... I will buy! Thank you again for the gift of knowledge and health!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primer December 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
I read the Engine 2 book cover to cover, along with other books such as books by McDougall, Caldwell, and Dr. Esselstyn (Rip's father). I've also seen Rip speak in person in Portland, Oregon. When the video became available, I ordered it immediately.

I found the video enjoyable and informative. I'm not sure that there was anything new for me, given how much reading I've done about vegan/plant-based eating, but it was great to see it in action. Two families who were ready to make changes and take charge of their health get a personal lesson in their own homes, and it was fun to watch. The only thing I'd hoped for was a follow up, to see if they were able to make the transition and stick with it, and how they benefited. Even so, it's a very good video and I do recommend it.
