The Honorable Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, Illinois in the USA, is asking residents of the city to follow the plant-based diet to improve their health.
Mayor Emanuel, who was Chief of Staff for His Excellency US President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2010, has been called “America’s fittest mayor for his commitment to healthy living through diet and exercise.
In January 2013, he endorsed the Engine 2 Diet created by vegan Rip Esselstyn, a former firefighter and world-class professional triathlete. The Honorable Rahm Emanuel is encouraging this famous vegan meal plan as a way to help the people of the “Windy City” enhance their well-being, as well as lower healthcare costs, lose weight and extend life expectancy.
He later proclaimed June 1 Veggie Pride Day in the city of Chicago.
Our respectful appreciation, The Honorable Mayor Rahm Emanuel, for advocating the highly beneficial vegan diet. May all Chicagoans be blessed with long, healthy, and happy lives as they enjoy delicious plant-based meals that are good for themselves and the planet.
