Actress Maggie Q Joins the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart

Actress Maggie Q for 21-Day Vegan KickstartActress Maggie Q is known for her take-charge roles in Live Free or Die Hard and Mission Impossible III. Now she’s joined the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart to help you take charge of your health.

“Taking animals and animal products out of my diet has done more for my personal health than I could have ever imagined,” says Maggie. “I owe my energy, my outlook, and my interconnectedness to an animal-free diet.”

Maggie’s Kickstart message will be going out to registered Kickstarters later this month. To make sure you receive it, sign up today at

The Kickstart began on Monday, but it’s not too late to sign up for daily messages, a 21-day meal plan, motivational nutrition webcasts, social support in the community forum, an interactive vegan restaurant guide, and tips from the veteran team of celebrity coaches.

If you are in Washington, D.C., or on the West Coast, ask PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., your Kickstart questions in person at one of his upcoming 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart book tour stops:
