The Engine 2 Diet, by Rip Esselstyn

If you think eating vegan is for wimps, the Engine 2 Diet could change your mind. Author Rip Esselstyn was a firefighter when he wrote this book; vegan for 20+ years, he thrived in a world where, if you weren't strong, smart and alert, you were—literally-- toast. His “plant-strong” diet is simple: whole fruits, grains and vegetables; no sugar, meat, dairy, or processed oils. What separates this book from its peers are the three approaches Esselstyn recommends to get you plant-strong. First, he details two ways to transition to the vegan lifestyle: gradual, or cold-turkey. Second, he includes three levels of exercise routines, beginning to advanced, which target your legs, arms, core, and cardiovascular system. And third, throughout the book, he teaches how to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your stuff from fire. A good read, with plenty of practical advice (and recipes).
