Fit Vegan Firefighters

Vegan firefighter Rip Esselstyn whips three unhealthy firefighters into shape after Dr. Oz challenge.

Last February, vegan firefighter Rip Esselstyn, author of the bestselling Engine 2 Diet, was featured on The Dr. Oz Show and challenged three Chicago firefighters to go on vegan diets to get healthy. This week, the three Windy City firefighters are reporting that they've each lost between 20 and 30 pounds, lowered their respective cholesterol levels, and feel healthier and more energized than ever before. Along with eliminating meat, dairy, and extracted oils from their diets, the firefighters also upped their exercise regimes. The men plan to stick to their new diets, and now claim kale, quinoa, and oatmeal as new favorite foods.
