A Message from Rip Esselstyn
You are in for a spectacular health makeover. I know that if I didn't follow this diet, I would never have had the energy to be a world-class triathlete or—just as demanding—a firefighter. On a plant-based diet, you'll be stockpiling away the nutrients like never before, improving your health, and reversing disease. If I can drag you away from your disease-promoting diet to a better way of living, the impact will be as powerful as dragging you out of a raging fire.
Time and time again, research shows that nutrients in foods are far more powerful than in supplements. For example, vitamin A from foods is protective against lung cancer in smokers, but increases the risk of lung cancer when taken artificially. Lesson: Eat your fruits and vegetables!
