Mark Bittman's VB6 Plan
Enjoy the health benefits of veganism without going vegan
People everywhere have been talking about Mark Bittman's sensible approach to veganism in his new book VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good. By avoiding animal products for most of the day, and then enjoying a sensible dinner which includes animal products like meat and dairy, many people have regained their health and not suffered the cravings and difficulty of going completely vegan.
I myself have been following a flexitarian plan like this for several years and have found many health benefits, including greatly lowering my cholesterol, while continuing to enjoy traditional meals that I love with my family. Need a little more help imagining those vegan meal plans?
