PCRM’s 21 day Vegan Kickstart Program

The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)’s Kickstart is for anyone who wants to experience the health benefits of a vegan diet.  The program, based on Neal Barnard’s research, kicks off September 6.

From an email I received from PCRM:  “Whether you are transitioning from vegetarian to vegan or changing your lifestyle because of diabetes or heart disease, you will notice amazing results in your health. If you already follow a plant-based diet, you’ll enjoy the new recipes, celebrity involvement, and sharing your own healthy eating tips in our interactive forum.”

More than 65,000 people have already experienced the Kickstart program.  PCRM is bringing back their veteran team of coaches, including Marilu Henner, John Salley, Bob Harper, Persia White, Dean Ornish, M.D., as well as other star-studded, health-promoting Kickstart team members.  Start the incredible journey by signing up HERE!
