Firefighters Fighting Off Pounds in Maryland with Engine 2 Diet

Sponsored by the Friendship Heights Whole Foods Market, firefighters of Bethesda, Maryland’s Station 6 said, “Yes” to giving 100% to an Engine 2 28-Day Challenge. Every week they made visits to the health-focused store to find the right ingredients for E2 recipes.

According to Marketing Team Leader, Jill Ward, who recruited the firefighters and provided encouragement along the way, half the station agreed to go on the diet to meet personal weight loss and cholesterol goals.

Their local ABC News 7 followed the story at the beginning and three weeks in to check their results. Check out the video news clips below!
