E2 Success Story from Seattle, Washington

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

It’s time for an E2 shout out to Laurel Disbrow who has taken control of her health one bite, one meal, one day, one week, and one month at a time.  You go get em, Laurel!!!!!

I bought the book and started the eating plan on Mother’s Day. I’ve been plagued by sinus problems and asthma for years. My body was producing so much mucus that I was always coughing and my chest was always congested. A friend once said I sounded like I had a 3-pack-a-day habit.

I noticed a marked change in my body’s mucus production by the 3rd day. It was so dramatic I thought it must be a fluke but after 17 days, I’m sold on this eating lifestyle! I’m still wondering about what I was eating
specifically that made me so sick. Whatever it was, I’m not going back. I cough very, very little and my chest is clear.

I really think that one of these days I’m not going to need my asthma meds at all. I’ve been able to cut down on the amount I take. I can work in the yard and I’m no longer huffing and puffing!! I have energy. I feel clear
headed.

I’m an obese, 58 year old female. I’ve dropped 5 lbs and feel like I’m
actually going to beat this weight problem without starving.

The food plan is easy. I still don’t like to exercise.

Thank you!!!
Laurel Disbrow

Do you have a health kingdom?

I’ve reversed this quote by Jack Lalane and given it an Engine 2 twist.

“You’ve got to eat right, exercise and have goals and challenges. Plant-strong nutrition is King; Exercise is queen. Put ‘em together and you’ve got a health kingdom!”

Check out this video of a 72 year old plant-strong warrior who lives and breathes this quote.
