Here is a huge Engine 2 shout out to Sam who went on a cruise and lost 13 pounds!!! He is an inspiration and is living proof that you can take a cruise and get healthier and lose weight while living the life of luxury. Thanks, Sam for sharing your E2 story!!!!
Thanks for the awesome book. While I’ve always heard you shouldn’t eat this or that, and totally understood why, no one ever gave a GREAT “do this and eat this” option. It was always “just don’t eat the bad stuff!” So besides the great science and suggestions you shared, your menu options and grocery list IS THE STUFF! Seeing that, had me sold and I jumped on board “cold turkey” (or cold asparagus if you rather)!
So the real kicker is this…I downloaded your book to my eBook before jumping a flight to Europe for a 10 day cruise. You know, one of those “I don’t know how I put on 20lbs in 2 weeks?” cruises! So instead I ordered and ate as directed, had a fantastic cruise and in 10 days dropped 13 pounds and feel like a million bucks. A funny note there, when I landed in Barcelona I went for my, what’s become my normal laboring 3 mile run…after the cruise and 10 days and losing 13 pounds, I did the same run and felt like a whole new person! (Duh I’m not carrying what’s equal too a backpack filled with 13 steaks on my back!)
I’ve got 1 more week to go, and then will definitely keep up most of the practices…with the exception of an ice cream splurge when necessary!
Interesting note….besides the cholesterol drop, I wouldn’t consider it a weight loss diet, but rather a weight normalization diet. After my 13 lbs. which took me to my normal weight I had been for years, there has been no more loss. It is the correct weight for my height and age. Obviously I didn’t have that much to lose weight-wise but for some this diet could be shocking! (in a good way)
All the best….GO GREEN!
