The Engine 2 Diet

January 17th, 2011

There has been much talk recently about The Engine 2 Diet, a diet started by the Engine 2 Fire Station in Austin, Texas.  It is a complete plant-based diet which, of course, would be vegan though no mention of that is in the book. Likely so nobody is scared away by that militant word: vegan.  I have no tried the recipes in the book nor have I tried the diet.  It is for those who already have a high cholesterol level and are in dire need of a change.  Whole Foods at Coolsprings and Green Hills are starting a 28-day challenge based on The Engine 2 Diet. The first class starts today (January 17) but I was informed that due to the popularity there are other classes scheduled and early sign-ups are highly recommended. (See comment on this post by Ryan from Whole Foods)

If you have tried The Engine 2 Diet or are taking the 28-Day Challenge at Whole Foods I would be interested in hearing about your experience.  Did the diet help you find the results you were looking for? Did you enjoy cooking and eating the recipes? Do you plan on sticking with it past the 28 days? Let me know as I’m always interested in how others find there way to a vegan diet, even when it’s not labeled as such, and the results they get from it.
