Alec Baldwin’s Radical Nutrition Plan: Replace Meal Replacement Bars with Meals
New PSA Offers Hope to Millions Hooked on Mundane Meal Replacement Bars

WASHINGTON—Actor Alec Baldwin is giving radical nutrition advice to the millions who subsist on mundane meal replacement bars: Eat actual meals. In the 40-second public service announcement, Baldwin says the Physicians Committee’s Meal Replacement Bar Replacement Meal Plan not only saves time and money—it’s actually more nutritious than meal replacement bars.

“Tired of running to the store for expensive meal replacement bars? They cost a fortune!” says Baldwin in the PSA. “At the Physicians Committee, we have the perfect solution: The Meal Replacement Bar Replacement Meal. It has all the nutrition of a meal replacement bar—and you can make it right at home!” Baldwin shares the plant-based meal plan and cleanse in the PSA available at

His advice follows a new scientific study highlighting the many benefits of the Meal Replacement Bar Replacement Meal: Eating more fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes could save millions of lives and trillions of dollars, according to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

“Patients are raving that their meals—and their lives—have gone from bland and beige to delicious and dazzling on the Meal Replacement Bar Replacement Meal Plan,” says Physicians Committee president Neal Barnard, M.D. “It’s amazing what fruits, veggies, whole grains, and legumes can do for you.”
