Professional triathlete, Rip Esselstyn has adopted a plant-based diet, the Engine 2 Diet, at the advice of his father, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, chief of surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, who discovered through medical research that a whole-food plant-based, low-fat diet could reverse heart disease and diabetes.
Before making any dietary or exercise changes in your lifestyle, please consult your physician.
These are NOT included in a plant-strong diet:
- anything with a mother or a face (no meat, poultry, eggs or fish)
- dairy products (no milk, cheese, yogurt, that's right I said cheese)
- added oils
You can eat a wonderful variety of delicious, nutrient-dense foods (i.e., these ARE included in the Engine 2 diet):
- all vegetables (leafy green vegetables, root vegetables,
- veggies that are red, green, purple, orange, and yellow etc.)
- all legumes (beans, peas, and lentils of all varieties)
- all whole grains and wg-products, such as bread and pasta w/ no added fats
- all fruits
- seeds and nuts (in moderate quantities)
