The wonderful people at Hachette Book Group are helping me give away five copies of The Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefighter's 28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan that Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds, which was just published February 25th!! The books will be shipped directly from the publisher.
From my review:
In a nutshell: This is a great book for anyone who needs to lose weight or lower their cholesterol. It is a pretty strict diet, eliminating dairy, processed foods and meat, but the author has provided explanations and the science behind why this diet works (this helps provide encouragement). He even says that if you don't do the entire diet, you can still use the basics to eat healthier every day. In my case, that is what I am trying to do. With two adults and a toddler in the house, I really don't see a strictly vegetarian diet working for our family, but I do understand the power behind adding more plant-based foods to our diet. Rip Esselstyn has also included some basic exercises and a whole section of recipes, with some great tips worked in. This diet has been endorsed by Lance Armstrong, as well as many medical doctors, and was tested by over 65 people when the author was first validating it.
