Alicia Silverstone is committed to helping new vegans get started. She’s the force behind The Kind Life, a website full of information about living a cruelty-free lifestyle, and author of The Kind Diet. Now, she is helping the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) kick off the new year with their program to guide healthy vegan diets.

PCRM’s 21-Day Vegan Kickstart provides tips from celebrities, meal plans, webcasts by Dr. Neal Barnard, restaurant guides and more.  PCRM says “Low-fat vegan—plant-based—diets are the easiest way to trim excess weight, prevent diabetes, cut cholesterol, lower blood pressure, prevent and reverse heart disease, and reduce cancer risk. They even trim our carbon footprint.”

Alicia Silverstone wants to help you and PCRM get started. She provided the first day’s message, saying “On a plant-based diet, you will lose weight easily, your skin will absolutely glow, you will have tons of energy, and you will become more sensitive to all the important things in life—like love, nature, and your deepest, truest self. The journey starts today.” What are Alicia’s tips on how to go vegan? “1. Commit to freeing your body from the grip of unhealthy foods. 2. Check in with your body; listen to its signals. 3. Be proud of the choices you’re making. 4. If you fall off the wagon, just get back on – no drama, no guilt.”

Pretty good advice. What are your New Year’s resolutions? Do they include a brand new diet?
