DBTV: Plant Strong! Texas Firefighter, Rip Esselstyn of “The Engine 2 Diet”

Rip Esselstyn lives in Texas. He’s a firefighter, a triathlete, and author of the book “The Engine 2 Diet“, which started out as a 28-day challenge to lower the cholesterol of his fire crew (some with digits in the 340s!), and ended up giving them all (and hundreds of other Austin, Texas firefighters) much more than they bargained for! I chatted with Rip the other day about his book and how it’s changing people’s lives in under 30 days. We talked about everything from amazing pizza recipes, to boners, sports and manliness. Check it out:

It’s time for me to give a big, big Engine 2 shout out to Robyn O’Brien, the whistle blowing Mom from Colorado who’s impressive and compelling book, The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food is Making us Sick — And What We Can Do About It, was just released. When the youngest of her four children came down with a food allergy she starting digging around to find answers. The  relationship she unearthed between the toxicity of America’s food and the connections to big business and big money is nothing short of startling. Robyn was in Austin, Texas promoting her book Friday. She spoke at the Livestrong headquarters at noon and Book People on North Lamar at 6:00 PM. Robyn will be making waves and turning heads as her message reaches the masses. Again, here’s an E2 shout out to you Robin.  You got spirit and  guts!! Go get em!!!!

 

Robyn and Rip meet to share their message and books.
