It's as simple as it sounds, you follow a vegan diet (no animal products) every day until 6pm. Then you can eat small amounts of dairy, meat or fish.
Author, Mark Bittman is a columnist for the New York Times. At the age of 57, he was faced with the threat of diabetes and heart disease. His doctor told him he needed to become a vegan, but as a respected food writer Bittman wasn't ready to turn his back on all the foods he loved - so he didn't.
With the VB6 diet, Bittman could still enjoy meat, fish and diary in a moderated way that was more sustainable for his health as well as the wider environment. No complicated calorie counting, just a simple philosophy of eating good, healthy food.
We've rounded up the core principles of the VB6 diet, so you can see for yourself how easy a healthy lifetsyle can really be. All it takes is a few clicks, and you'll be on your way to a heart healthy future.
