“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
