From the Back Cover
Six years ago, an overweight, pre-diabetic Mark Bittman faced a medical order: adopt a vegan diet or go on medication. He didn't want to spend the rest of his life on pills, but as a food writer he lived - and worked - to eat.
Mark's solution was to switch to a 'flexitarian' diet: until 6:00 pm each day he was a vegan, his food consisting of fresh vegetables, fruits, and grains. After 6:00 p.m. he'd eat however he wanted. He called this plan 'Vegan Before 6:00' (VB6 for short), and not only did Mark swiftly lost two and a half stone but the diet proved to be lasting and sustainable in the long term.
VB6 involves no gimmicks, scales, calorie counting, or point systems. There are no so-called forbidden foods - just delicious home-cooked meals and a practical solution to healthier eating. In the book you will find recipes to kick-start your new life-style, alongside a complete 28-day eating plan showing VB6 in actin, plus tips and advice from Mark throughout.
If you're one of the millions who have thought of trying a vegan diet but fear it's too monotonous or unfamiliar, or simply don't want to give up the foods you love to eat, VB6 will introduce a new, flexible, and quite simply better way of eating you can really live with . . . for life.
