On Thursday, Dr. Oz featured vegan firefighter Rip Esselstyn, author of the bestselling Engine 2 Diet, on The Dr. Oz Show. Esselstyn was inspired to write the book after watching his fellow firefighters thrive on vegan diets. The entire episode was devoted to men’s health issues, including diet, exercise, and weight loss, and Esselstyn stressed that a vegan diet lowers cholesterol, promotes healthy weight loss, and improves overall health. Dr. Oz challenged Esselstyn to whip three overweight firefighters into shape by putting them on the Engine 2 Diet for two months.
