21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart Book Tour this April

Two Wisconsin siblings shed 150 pounds. A man in Washington, D.C., lowered his cholesterol 75 points. A Californian eliminated her migraines. Overhaul your diet and health when the 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart book tour comes to your town.

21-Day Weight Loss KickstartJoin PCRM president and nutrition researcher Neal Barnard, M.D., in cities across America for a free lecture where he will detail his three-week immersion program into an essentially perfect diet—loaded with vegetables, fruits, and other healthful foods—and sign copies of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health.

“We’ve found that the best way to lose weight is to jump into a completely healthy diet for three weeks,” Dr. Barnard explains. “During this test drive, people start to slim down, and they also see their cholesterol and blood pressure plummet. Migraines and other pains often vanish. If they have diabetes, it often improves and sometimes even disappears.”

Dr. Barnard, whose nutrition program is also appearing on PBS stations across the country, recommends foods that help tame the appetite and boost metabolism. His program does not require calorie counting or even exercise. He provides three weeks of recipes, nutrition information, and cooking tips, as well as inspiration from celebrities, including a foreword by Alicia Silverstone, tips from Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper, and advice from NBA champion John Salley.
