Lose weight, lower cholesterol, significantly reduce the risk of disease, and become physically fit--in just 4 weeks.

Professional athlete-turned-firefighter Rip Esselstyn is used to responding to emergencies. So, when he learned that some of his fellow Engine 2 firefighters in Austin, TX, were in dire physical condition-several had dangerously high cholesterol levels (the highest was 344!)-he sprang into action and created a life-saving plan for the firehouse. By following Rip's program, everyone lost weight (some more than 20 lbs.), lowered their cholesterol (Mr. 344's dropped to 196), and improved their overall health. Now, Rip outlines his proven plan in this book. With Rip as your expert coach and motivator, you'll transform your body and lifestyle in a month. His plant-powered eating plan is based on a diet of whole foods, including whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. This invaluable guide features: **Dozens of easy, mouthwatering recipes-from pancakes to pizza, Tex-Mex favorites to knockout chocolate desserts-that will keep you looking forward to every bite **Pantry-stocking tips will take the panic out of inevitable cravings and on-the-fly meals **Guidelines on menu choices that will allow you to eat out, wherever and whenever you want **Rip's simple, firefighter-inspired exercise program that will boost your metabolism and melt your fat away.

    This book is written in a conversational manner that is informative and encouraging. My husband has lowered his cholesterol by over 50 points in a 2-week period of sticking to the program religously. It is a big change for anyone who eats anything besides fruit, veggies,beans and grains (!) but seems to be well worth it and we are having fun trying new things. We've recommended this book to many people.

  • Great Book

    Very happy I found the Overstock.com website. Have ordered 3 other things and had to return one. They are very efficient with returns and refunds. Thanks, Overstock. This is a great way to learn a new way of eating to become healthy and lose weight. Haven't started the program (vegetarian) yet. Plan to start after 1st of the year. Would definitely recommend this book to friends and family..

  • Helpful and informative!

    I loved the way that the book was written, like you actually got a sense of its purpose. The information in the book about nutrition was right on. It was accurate, and I would definitely trust anything that the author would advise.
