Go Plant-Strong!
Week 4

A note from Rip: 

rip-esselstyn-largeHELLO E2 CHALLENGERS!!!

I want to thank you for embarking on the Engine 2 Challenge!  Think about it: In just twenty-eight days, you will plant the seeds of a spectacular long-lasting, healthy makeover. I know that if I didn’t follow this diet, I never would have had the energy to be a world-class triathlete, or just as grueling, a firefighter.

The Engine 2 Diet is a snap to follow!  Depending on which of the programs you select, you will learn the basic principles of the Engine 2 lifestyle or you will spend two or four weeks eating a tempting variety of the most colorful, nutrient-packed foods that Mother Nature provides: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.

During this time, you will push all meat and dairy products to the back burner, as well as refined and processed foods—including extracted oils–while feasting on jillions of plant-diverse foods.

That’s the Engine 2 Diet in a healthy nutshell!!

I wish you only the best as you start what I know will be an eye opening, lifelong love affair with plant-beautiful foods.

Remember, this isn’t just a 28 Day Challenge, it’s an adventure in healthy eating and living.

Now go out there and GET FIRED UP!

Plant-Strong,

Week 4

This is your last week of your personal 28-Day Challenge and those of you that follow and finish plant-strong – you have successfully planted the seeds that can last a life time.

A big, hearty, healthy E2 congratulations to all of you!

You decided it was time to take your health into your own hands. You are becoming bulletproof to the chronic western diseases infesting every city in America. This is your last week of your personal 28-Day Challenge and those of you that follow and finish plant-strong – you have successfully planted the seeds that can last a life time.
What to think about this week:

Take note of the differences you feel in your body. How is your energy? Are you experiencing a level that you never knew existed before? How is your weight?

We encourage you to complete your “after” blood work and see the difference in your cholesterol numbers.

We also encourage you to continue eating this way so you do not lose everything you’ve gained. Enjoy the adventure of discovering new recipes, new things to order when you eat out, and have fun with it!! Don’t forget to keep up with us on our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest! Plant-Strong!
