You probably remember Maureen McCormick as Marcia from The Brady Bunch—as in, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!” These days, she’s enjoying a renewed sense of celebrity as a result of her appearances on popular reality TV programs, such as Celebrity Fit Club, Gone Country, and its sequel, Outsider’s Inn. She’s also just released an autobiography, Here’s the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, and it’s already successful.

Maureen has long been known for her adorability—it’s true, she’s super cute!—but even after her (winning!) stint on Celebrity Fit Club, she’s still been looking to shed a few more pounds. So, being the helpful people we are, we’re sending her a copy of PETA’s “Vegetarian Starter Kit” and a word of advice—that one of the best, healthiest ways to lose weight is to go vegan!

As we wrote in our letter to Maureen, vegan diets are a great change from the heart-damaging cholesterol that is found in dead flesh. Cutting out dairy also means cutting out a lot of fat—dairy “products” are, after all, about as high-fat as you can get.

You can check out our letter to Maureen here. We hope that Maureen can turn over a new dieting leaf, and maybe she’ll find her true voice—as a vegetarian!
