Kickstart Intensive Agenda Unveiled: Three Days of Nutrition Lectures, Cooking Demos, and Vegan Meals
We just released the Kickstart Intensive agenda, and seats are filling up. There is not much time left to register for the program that starts Oct. 4 in Washington, D.C. I already gave you a sneak peek of how this program will help you lose weight, get healthy, and test drive a vegan diet. And I hope you had a chance to watch the brief videos from Michael Greger, M.D., and Chef Christine Waltermyer, two of the presenters. Now, take a look at the intense three-day agenda below. It’s packed with nutrition lectures from health care professionals, cooking demonstrations by chefs and cookbook authors, and even a health tracker station.
