Firehouses are notorious for delicious, artery clogging cuisine. So ideastream®'s Eric Wellman was surprised when a weight loss book came across his desk that was written by a firefighter. It was all about the virtues of a plant-based diet. Rip Esselstyn is the author of The Engine 2 Diet. Esselystyn lives in Austin Texas, but grew up in Pepper Pike. He came to Cleveland on May 6th, 2009 for a book signing at Joseph Beth Booksellers at Legacy Village. As part of our special multimedia coverage of heart disease, ideastream®'s Eric Wellman spoke with Esselstyn about the diet and how he convinced his fellow firefighters to adopt it.
