Save your life lifestyle plan. More than just another diet,
This review is from: The Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefighter's 28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan that Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds (Hardcover)So, if you found out that you could take control of your health, extend your life and have more energy every day of that life would you be adventurous enough to make the changes required or would you bitch and moan about not being able to enjoy buffalo wings and donuts? The stuff that Rip writes about is backed up by hard science and test groups. If you have a family to raise, things left to do with your life and a desire to live well you really can't ignore the advice in this book. No one will put a gun to your head and demand that you do everything in the book right away but if you started to implement this program and then eased into it week by week you will wake up one day healthier and happier than you have been in years.
It's never all or nothing. My family follows this diet most days of the week. Once in a while we go out for a burger. But the benefits accrue and they are real.
To anyone who believes you need animal protein in your diet you only have to watch the author swim with his Austin masters swim team. The guy has it all: Speed, endurance and boundless energy. He is a the poster man for living clean.
You'll probably spend more on your next dinner out than you will on this book. The interesting thing is that the dinner out may shorten your life while draining your wallet. The book will help extend your life while helping reshape the way we eat and the wasteful way we (as a nation) experience food.
