Dr. Neal Barnard (www.pcrm.org)
Dr. Neal Barnard’s explanations of why and how a whole foods, plant-based diet works were highly influential and inspirational to me during my research period and still are. He is an absolute pleasure to listen to. Kindness and compassion shine through all his highly informational talks, lectures, interviews, books and articles. He is a true vegan advocate.
Dr. Barnard is the founder of Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and a world leader in plant-based nutrition, higher ethical standards, reducing cruelty to animals and developing medical research methods completely without animals. His game-changing life work of successes and accomplishments is so extensive, it is to voluminous to list.

Dr. Neal Barnard and the PCRM group offer a comprehensive program called the “21-day Vegan Kickstart”, to introduce people how to start and follow the plant-based way of eating. See http://www.pcrm.org/kickstartHome
