Here is what one reader had to say about the book-
“Rip, did a great job with this book. I started with the seven-day rescue and then bought this, but I’d been working on going plant-based for a year and a half since seeing Forks Over Knives. I’m finally there. I lost 3lbs on the seven-day rescue, and I’m looking forward to losing even more with the 28-day plan outlined here.”
This excellent book should be on the shelf of anyone who wants to be as healthy as a veteran triathlete. That being said, some of the things the author said about animal products are questionable.
