Get Ready to Kickstart Your Health with PCRM on Sept. 8

healthy coupleWhether you’re drawn to chocolate, cookies, potato chips, cheese, or burgers and fries, we all have foods we can’t seem to resist—foods that sabotage our best efforts to lose weight and improve our health. But PCRM’s Vegan Kickstart will help you win the food fight.

Based on research by Neal Barnard, M.D., PCRM president and one of America’s leading health advocates, this 21-day program is designed for anyone who wants to explore and experience the health benefits of a vegan diet.

“If you set aside an addicting food, such as cheese, for three weeks, you crave it much less than if you had just had it yesterday,” says Dr. Barnard. “By adjusting our overall diet we can become more resistant to cravings and less likely to binge.”

During the three weeks, you will have an all-access pass to:

  • daily e-tips that will put you on the path to weight loss, better health, and greater well-being;
  • a delicious, easy, and satisfying recipe sent every day that will help you break your cravings for unhealthy foods;
  • weekly motivational nutrition webcasts featuring Dr. Barnard; and
  • social support of other Kickstart participants through a message board where nutrition professionals answer your health and diet questions.

And if those aren’t enough reasons to try out a vegan diet, the recently released 2009 Position of the American Dietetic Association: Vegetarian Diets should persuade you:

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the lifecycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.

The Kickstart begins Sept. 8. Find out how easy it is to improve your diet in 21 days.
