Photos available from the Viva Health’s Veggie Health & Slimming Show: http://www.vvf.org.uk/slimmingshows/bristol_photocall On Thursday 19 April, Viva Health supporters Michelle Preston, Kath Brice and Mira Kumar dressed as three high-kicking Veggie Angels at The Podium, Broadmead Shopping Centre, Bristol. They were inviting Bristolians to the Viva Health’s Veggie Health & Slimming Show to find out all they ever wanted to know about being energetic, healthy and slim! The Show comes to Broadmead Baptist Church, Lower Union Street, Bristol on Saturday 28 April from 10.30am to 4pm. Admission to the Show is £2 and includes a free health and slimming guide. All admission proceeds will go to charity. Taking a break from fighting flab and disease with her vegetable gun, Michelle told Viva Health, “I’m delighted to be helping to promote the Show – it’s sure to be an inspirational and fun day out. There’ll be free food tastings, cookery demonstrations, slimming advice, competitions, makeovers, beauty products, a fashion show, talks by top health experts (including Why You Don’t Need Dairy and how the V-Plan Diet can spark weight loss and keep hunger at bay) and help in going veggie, vegan or simply cutting down on meat. There’ll also be stalls providing a good shopping opportunity, and a nutritionist and slimming coach on hand to answer any niggling questions you may have!” Hi-res print quality photographs are now available to download from the webpage. If you have any problems downloading these please email michelle@viva.org.uk or phone 0117 970 5190. http://www.vvf.org.uk/slimmingshows/bristol_photocall Local stallholders include Britain’s top vegetarian restaurant, Café Maitreya, which will run a café at the show giving away free food samples. Bath-based Enamore Ltd will be exhibiting a range of their beautiful clothing and accessories (made from organic and sustainable fabrics) in a fashion show. The Veggie Living, Health & Slimming Show is part of the Viva Health’s V-Plan diet tour which, since its December launch, has notched up appearances in Leeds, Cardiff, Newport and Shrewsbury.

The message behind the tour, and indeed the diet is that a healthy veggie diet is the perfect way not only to lose pounds and save yourself pounds, but also to reduce your risk of killer diseases – whilst giving hunger the heave-ho!

About the author
Dr. Justine Butler
I joined Viva! as a health campaigner in 2005 after graduating from Bristol University with a PhD in molecular biology. My scientific training helped me research and write numerous reports, guides and fact sheets for Viva! including Meat the Truth, Fish-Free for Life, One in Nine (breast cancer and diet) and the substantial report on the detrimental health effects of consuming dairy; White Lies. This accompanied Viva!’s report The Dark Side of Dairy which spelt out the inherent cruelty of dairy farming. We were the first UK group to take on the dairy industry in this way, and many of our supporters go vegan after reading these reports.
