Step into any store and you can't deny it—swimsuit season is almost here. Fear not, dessert devotees! You can be ready to make waves while catching waves in no time. In his new book (21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health), Dr. Neal Barnard illustrates how a plant-based diet will let you shed pounds and improve your overall health in just three weeks.
Dr. Barnard is the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the author of several best-selling books on health and nutrition. His 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart also discusses foods that tame the appetite, burn calories, and fight cancer. Dr. Barnard also offers a "21-Day Vegan Kickstart" program online, and his nutrition guidelines are the subject of an upcoming PBS television series. There are so many great ways to get healthy and trim, you'll be buying a new swimsuit before the stores have even finished putting them on the shelves.
