Two Days That Could Change Your Life

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

Have you been wanting to go vegan but just aren’t sure how to start? You’re not alone. More and more people are discovering that they can feel better, live longer, and stop contributing to environmental devastation and cruelty to animals with a plant-based diet—but that they need a little guidance in making the switch.

Enter the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine’s Kickstart Intensive. This two-and-a-half-day program features classes, discussions with nutrition experts, cooking demonstrations, and complimentary meals to get aspiring vegans well on their way. Billed as a “life-changing experience,” Kickstart Intensive covers topics such as breaking food addictions, permanent weight control, and power foods for the brain. Attendees will receive a personal year-long support system to help keep them on track, including conference calls and online resources.
