Doctor Challenges Cincinnati to Slim Down with 21-Day Kickstart Program

Learn How to Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Health

Neal Barnard, M.D., is challenging Cincinnati residents to change their dietary ways and aims to help them do it. He brings his groundbreaking nutrition research to Cincinnati, a city with a serious obesity problem, and explains his findings at a free seminar on April 21. Dr. Barnard, whose nutrition program appears on PBS stations across the country, will also sign copies of his book, 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart.

“We’ve found that the best way to lose weight is to jump into a completely healthy diet for three weeks,” Dr. Barnard explains. “That means skipping meat and greasy foods, and focusing on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans for three weeks. During this test drive, people start to slim down, and they also see their cholesterol and blood pressure levels plummet. If they have diabetes, it often improves dramatically Migraines and other pains often vanish.”

Dr. Barnard recommends foods that help tame the appetite and boost metabolism. His program does not require calorie counting or even exercise. He provides three weeks of recipes, nutrition information, and cooking tips, as well as inspiration from celebrities, including a foreword by Alicia Silverstone, tips from Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper, and advice from NBA champion John Salley.
