If you're interested in losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or just embracing an overall healthy way of eating, then this class is for you!  This 4 series class is being offered free of charge to members of the Austin community by Rene Pere, licensed Food for Life instructor.  It is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program.  Here, you will learn about the clinical benefits of the food choices that we make on: lowering cholesterol; improved diabetes control; lowering blood pressure; improving energy and mood; and losing weight.  Beginning in week 2 of this series, attendees will have the opportunity, tools, and support of others needed to begin their own 21 Day Vegan Kickstart.  Throughout this 4 week series, practical tips and resources for benefiting from a whole food plant based lifestyle will be provided, discussed, and implemented.  Participants will also be given the opportunity throughout the course to share successes and challenges with each other in a supportive environment.
