“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.” – Eric G., Amazon

“I love this book. I began my interest in plant-based foods after watching FSND 1/2, but I wanted to learn more about whole food/plant-based (WFPB) eating, so I watched Forks Over Knives, and other documentaries, read the China Study, and Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, and then I looked for whatever I could find by one of the Esselstyn family members. I bought all of their books, and I really love this one. Rip Esselstyn breaks WFPB eating down so that it is easy to understand, makes perfect sense, and does not seem so overwhelming a change to make. It is written very well, and has so many great bits of information, tips, and recipes! I actually bought it twice, paperback, and on my Kindle – so I have access to it all the time. Yep, it is that good!” – Cyngnaz, Amazon

“This book exceeded my expectations. After reading The China Study and Whole by Colin Campbell, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, by Caldwell Esselstyn, and The Forks Over Knives Plan, I figured Rip’s book would be on the fluffy side. I learned a lot reading it; it goes down easy. And the bonus: fantastic recipes. I liked it so much I bought his book, My Beef With Meat. A big fan!” – Linda Caswell, Amazon

“This movie really helps people who have no idea about eating an all natural plant based diet, they tell what to get rid of and take you to the grocery store and tells you what to buy.” – Linda Hodges, Amazon

“This set us back on track. My husband and I became vegan 6/13 after watching Forks Over Knives. We both lost a tremendous amount of weight and feel great. We were eating healthy, or so I thought. I almost didn’t watch this documentary as I doubted there was anything I could glean from it. Wrong! I realized we had slipped and were relying on too much processed vegan foods and too much olive oil. The whole film was worth it to get the simple kale salad recipe Rip made. I call it Crave Worthy Kale Salad. Super easy and fantastic! Other than juicing I never really knew how to eat kale. This will become a staple. I really appreciate what Rip and his dad has done to educate people on healthy choices.” – Kiki Gee, Amazon

“This is the best book to change your life. It has changed mine. I have RA and had to be put on meds, I decided to do whatever it takes to get off them and so I ordered this book. Changing my diet has given me energy and it gets the bad things out of your system. This might seem strange but my body would not void like it should until I started eating the right foods. Thank you Rip for helping me lead a healthier life. I will tell anyone who will listen about this book.” – Kathleen Styles, Amazon

“This man comes in the home to assist in separating the good from the unhealthy in the pantry and the refrigerator. Then takes the family shopping and follows that with detailed preparation of 3 meals per family with the supplies purchased. Really helpful for those wanting a new lifestyle for health.” – Joe, Amazon

“Really good book with helpful tips for eating a vegan diet and not missing a thing. The recipes are wonderful, and Rip’s anecdotes make for interesting reading as well.” – Sara Caballera
