This Months Issue Of Fire/ Rescue Magazine

If you are perusing through the July 2010 issue of Fire/ Rescue Magazine you will find an interesting article starting on page 16….cause I know each and every one of you have a subscription to aforementioned magazine.  Back to page 16, the article is titled “Diet-Hard Fans:  Vegan Firefighters is not an oxymoron- it’s a small but growing trend.”  The person interviewed is none other than Engine 2 diet founder Rip Esselstyn, the very same rad dude that I have mentioned several times on this site and is at least partially responsible for my own transformation.  I cannot find this article online anywhere so I will give you the finer points:

  1. The Austin Fire Department (the department Rip was a member of) now boasts close to 100 vegan firefighters!
  2. The number 1 cause of fatalities of firefighters is heart disease.
  3. While appearing on the Dr. Oz show Rip challenged 3 overweight Chicago firefighters with the Engine 2 Diet.  Within 2 months they all had lost between 25 to 40 pounds. 

 Keep it up Rip!
