 If you’re looking for an easy and delicious way to lose weight while not cutting calories, then register today to receive PCRM's free 21-Day Vegan Kickstart. Not only will you lose weight and feel amazing, but you will have all of the necessary information available in order to do so.

The 21-Day Vegan Kickstart, an online nutrition program that shows people how to lose weight for the New Year, became available on January 1. With coaching led by actress Alicia Silverstone, former Miss World Rosanna Davison, NBA champion John Salley, Dr. Neal Barnard, and more, the online program provides free support for people interested in healthy plant-based eating.

The program has everything a person needs to get started, whether it is meal plans, recipes, or advice on healthy eating. Enjoy celebrity tips and favorite recipes, such as Rosanna Davison’s “Quinoa and Carrot Salad” or Alicia Silverstone’s “Crocodile Crunch.”

Many times, people avoid a vegan diet because they think it’s too much work. In reality, a vegan diet is the easiest way to lose weight without having to cut calories. PCRM dietitian Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., spoke about how convenient a vegan diet actually is. “Losing weight has never been easier. There is no need to count calories on a low-fat, vegan diet. Kickstarters can lose about a pound a week and many experience significant health benefits, including lower cholesterol and increased energy. This is a great program for anyone that wants to lose weight and maximize their health.”

How much easier can losing weight be when you receive daily emails with recipes and cooking tips, a 21-day meal plan, an interactive vegan restaurant guide, and a free iPhone application? Plus, subscribers get access to online videos and discussion boards that feature dietitians and physicians like Neal Barnard, M.D, John McDougall, M.D., and Dean Ornish, M.D. The kickstart provides everything you need to get started! This “diet” is one that you will actually want to stick with for the New Year, and years to come. Plus, the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart repeats at the first of each month and goes until the 21st of each month, so kickstarters always have the program to refer to!

If the convenience of a vegan diet isn’t enough persuasion already, people should consider the serious health benefits that a plant-based diet provides. Participants lose weight, lower blood sugar levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. It’s also possible that those on a vegan diet have a reduced need for medications used to treat diabetes and other health issues. Also, according to a recent study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, it’s “surprisingly easy” to adopt a vegan diet!

To lose weight and receive more health benefits than you can imagine, all it takes is a few seconds to register. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to feel and look amazing!
