Rip Esselstyn was a firefighter at Firehouse 2 in Austin, Texas, setting out to save his firefighting brother’s health. Armed with nutrition and health data from his father, pioneering Cleveland Clinic surgeon and researcher Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Rip developed the Engine 2 diet to prove that even the most macho firemen could transform their health with plants. Since the New York Times Bestselling book The Engine 2 Diet was released in 2009, Rip found that rather than the initial 28 days thought necessary to see results from a plant-strong diet, people could truly transform their health in only seven days. He will walk through the seven pillars of The Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Diet and how to implement them for big results.
