PCRM’s Vegan Kickstart

Yesterday, PCRM launched a 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program to promote the health benefits of plant-based eating.

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is making it easier than ever for those who resolved to eat meat- and dairy-free in 2012 with its newest 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program. Based on PCRM President Neal Barnard, MD’s recent book (and one of VegNews’ must-know books of 2011) titled 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart, the free program offers a three-week meal plan, webcasts, and a daily message, as well as tips and recipes from vegan celebrities such as Alicia Silverstone, Steve-O, and Tal Ronnen. In addition, the site offers a forum where participants can find support and have their questions answered by plant-based dietitians.
