McQuirter first went vegan 35 years ago and believes that living a plant-based lifestyle unlocks healthy habits and changes how people feel inside and out.

As a part of McQuirter’s 10 Million Black Vegan Women Movement, she is releasing free 21-Day Vegan Fresh Start programs to help people get on the movement. She aims to change the health paradigm of Black women now and for generations to come, according to a press release.

McQuirter’s programs have helped thousands of Black women experience life-changing health benefits like weight loss, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and even improved moods and cognitive function.

“When you consider that Black women experience among the worst health outcomes, it’s truly revolutionary that we have created a free global health intervention that has already helped thousands of Black women around the world improve their health,” said Tracye McQuirter, MPH. “Eating a whole-food, plant-based diet can be both life-changing and delicious, and the results from our 21-Day Vegan Fresh Start program prove just that!”

McQuirter has just released her fourth free 21-Day Vegan Fresh Start program, which will take place from September 18 – October 9, 2022.
