    1. I wonder if it pains Mark Bittman that his thoughtful approach to eating sustainably, and also healthfully, is being marketed as, horror of horrors, a diet book Or perhaps he s just laughing all the way to the bank Regardless, I mainly appreciated VB6 for its insights about the value of a balanced, grain legume fruitveggie centric diet, and its accessible recipes that are low in ingredients but high in flavor.So often, vegan cooking relies on vegan pantry staples seitan, Ener G egg replacer, gr [...]

    2. For the month of June this year, I did a vegan challenge No meat, milk, cheese, eggs, ice cream, or animal products for the whole month When I was done, I felt awesome and had lost 6 pounds, but as a person who loves food, I had to admit that I missed the flavor you can only get from real blue cheese or the creaminess you can only get from real ice cream or just the meatiness of a real meat hot dog even if I did enjoy the vegan alternatives to these things, I just missed the real stuff With Mark [...]

    3. I really do get tired of Mark Bittman opining about food, how we eat food, taking on the government and food industry etc I really just want him to write recipes That is the only reason I downloaded this book I, an avowed carnivore who named one of my children after a beef cattle breed , never thought the word Vegan would issue forth from my mouth, nor that I would be spending my days shovelling beets, avocados and walnuts into that same mouth instead of big slabs of brie cheese or that my morni [...]

    4. VB6 It s in there My husband and I started the VB6 lifestyle in September of 2011 after our doctor half heartedly agreed to let Mark see if he could bring down his high cholesterol levels through diet and exercise I have enjoyed home cooking and baking for the past twenty years but I still found the new foods and ingredients to be a challenge I spent hours consulting both Food Matters books, the How to Cook Everything Vegetarian app, and my trusty Joy of Cooking and America s Test Kitchen s Perf [...]

    5. Dr Mark Hyman was the first person who I saw to highly endorse reading this book The forward is endorsed by Dean Ornish.The book is part theory Part Mark Bittman sharing about his health transformation For the past 6 years he has eating lifestyle has pretty much been Eat a Vegan Diet before 6pm every dayen at dinner, He allowed himself to eat almost anything he wanted meats, cheese, pizza, fish, yummy dessert enjoy eating out with friends He lost weight, his blood work returned to normal, he fel [...]

    6. I just borrowed from the libraryVB6 Eat Vegan Before 6 00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health for Good by Mark Bittman It was just recently published, I m the third one to read it here Mark Bittman is a well known food writer When he turned 57, he went for a checkup and the doctor, Sid Baker, said, You should probably become a vegan He was 40 lbs overweight, had knee issues, sleep apnea and was looking at taking a drug like Lipitor So his answer to this was become a part time vegan Bitterman [...]

    7. If you are new to healthy eating, Bittman s book is an excellent place to start He breaks down the numbers and the chemistry but never overwhelms, and his voice is dependably resonant with common sense He knows his stuff but also knows what is reasonable and that humans enjoy eating, so the VB6 philosophy doesn t tell you to become a slave to stats or never ever eat dessert again What he is encouraging is an attainable shift towards a healthier lifestyle, meant to be a longterm change for the be [...]

    8. I m not really the audience for this it s geared towards heavy meat eaters who are trying to cut down but I always enjoy Mark Bittman s writing and recipes I don t really read diet books, but I suspect this is pretty loose and forgiving compared to most There is nothing that he absolutely says to never eat because he realizes we are all human and have our weaknesses, though he makes it pretty clear which foods he thinks we should avoid as much as possible It contains a decent amount of nutritio [...]

    9. As a mostly vegetarian who has no intention of basing my food consumption on the time on the clock, I don t particularly like the title of this book But before starting to read, I skimmed through, and it looks like a book with good tips that align with my opinion of what healthy eating should look like I also don t like the lose weight part of the title opt healthy habits and the rest will come But our country is obsessed with losing weight and looking good and if that makes people look at this [...]

    10. Meh While it has shining moments of the politically motivated writing on food and eating that I prefer, VB6 really does seem and like a diet book with every page Likely very useful and inspiring if the subject matter is new to you, but I didn t glean any new insight personally Abandon ship.

    11. I know Mark Bittman and Michael Pollan aren t the same person, but their work is so complementary that I often consider them together Bittman s latest book reads like a full, expository treatment of Pollan s mantra to Eat food Not too much Mostly plants first outlined in his 2007 NYT essay, Unhappy Meals michaelpollan articles arc Never mind that Pollan wrote a book that expanded on his essay in 2008 In Defense of Food An Eater s Manifesto I actually found that book a bit thin and unsatisfactory [...]

    12. I don t believe in diets A highly lucrative industry profits from, and has every incentive to prolong, people s unsound eating habits and their repeated, but doomed, efforts to change them The fact that we now use the word almost exclusively to mean a short term, often faddish and generally unsustainable, change to one s eating habits is indicative of the problem Diet simply means how we eat or our food lifestyle its Greek root means manner of living So many people would be better off if they wo [...]

    13. I enjoyed this book quite a bit and came away from it feeling positive and that the task ahead could be accomplished I do enjoy Bittman s books and writing I find that I can relate to his own experience in many ways but also feel that he doesn t have an agenda to force a specific lifestyle on me He presents the information and, for the most part, leaves me to make my own decisions In reading some of the less supportive comments, I have to say that it is my opinion that these people have missed t [...]

    14. I am a long time Mark Bittman fan I read his recipes and columns in the NY Times, and have bought many of his cookbooks I have especially enjoyed the shift he s taken in recent years from simply writing about food to writing about larger food issues, such as sustainability, health and hunger and the connection between the three The evolution in Mr Bittman s diet and the development of the VB6 Vegan Before 6 eating plan is the natural progression from his interest big pictures issues I share many [...]

    15. As a vegan 24 7 this book did not convince me to change my diet by much, but it has a lot of good tips and practical advice, some of which will be incorporated into our daily habits This is a book that I would want to give to all of my non vegan friends, if I knew they would actually read it It makes a good case for eating a plant based diet and that doing so can be painless and even tasty I think this book would appeal to those looking to improve their diet they know they have to do SOMETHING [...]

    16. Of course, I m the choir that Bittman usually preaches to concerned about industrial agriculture, a vegetarian who is practical and not fussy, tries to eat locally seasonally organically when I can, and who likes to cook I liked this book, though I skimmed most of the science about metabolism and sugar etc I was interested in the basics of VB6, looking for a way to make my vegetarianism less reliant on processed food and whole This book definitely has me inspired, as did Food Matters I just ne [...]

    17. Such a weird book, that begins as basically a we now know eating vegan can be the best for your body because we re marketed to keep consuming hyper processed foods, the environmental impacts of eating meat are tremendous and the moral issues when you choose to support factory farms the go vegan trifecta I see everywhere that s later filled with non vegan recipes for those transitioning and lots of excursions into non straightforward approaches about what and how to eat eg we re not counting calo [...]

    18. I really enjoy the work of Mark Bittman and found this book up to his usual standard Bittman clearly explains some of the research on vegan eating, and I liked the way he focused on the health benefits of many vegan staples, as opposed to harping on the health risks of non vegan foods He says at one point that you should not let perfection be the enemy of good, and I appreciated that message.I also liked the way he offered many suggestions for quick and easy foods Too many other books of this t [...]

    19. I started reading the newest release from Mark Bittman the legendary New York Times food writer I ve admired for years not because I was necessarily wanting to lose weight but because I felt pulled in by Bittman s personal story about how this method of eating was so beneficial to his lifelong health I have high cholesterol darn genetics and I ve been interested in how food can help me control my blood work, so I ve been really fascinated by this book and find myself truly enjoying the recipes I [...]

    20. Really comprehensive Bible for the vegan before dinner lifestyle I especially love the info dump at the beginning with discussion of glycemic index, calorie density, and other terms you hear but never quite understand There are tons of charts, sidebars, and visual break up so you don t get bored reading about this lifestyle It s, in a word, smart This is my second year of vb6 and I stand behind Bittman s claims about its benefits I find I crave junk food less, and my body feels healthier overall [...]

    21. Another great book about the benefits of being vegan, only this one is a little less strict than Neal Barnard s 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart because it encourages a flexible style, which includes animal products for one meal a day Should I ever add animal products back into my diet in any kind of conscious and regular fashion, this is the way I d do it I will say that having been vegan, or as close to it as I can reasonably be, for the past 5 or so months, it s certainly a lifestyle and not a di [...]

    22. I have one of Mark Bittman s cookbooks that I use sometimes its very big and a bit daunting at times I was eager to check this book out I m a long time vegetarian and vegan for a few years now To me, I don t understand the concept of eat vegan before six as a diet plan and way to loose weight Yes, you are limiting two meals a day to healthier eating but you still have dinner I think its a food lifestyle change that you must make to help with weight loss but overall better health benefits You nee [...]

    23. I love Mark Bittman s column in the NY Times and enjoy his online videos enormously His introduction of this book thru his regular newspaper column made me enormously curious and eager to read it I was not disappointed As another reader whose family needs to turn around their blood work and lifestyle, I have embraced his suggestions wholeheartedly As usual, his recipes and food combinations are fantastic Everything he describes is easy to understand and implement cook This is just a great book a [...]

    24. quite good I liked it because it didn t over explain the concept is simple eat vegan including avoiding processed food before 6pm after you eat what yo want It works for Mark Bittman , because he is a food writer and he isn t going to give up on eating well I am not going to do it, mostly because it would be difficult in the am However, it has me thinking about how I wish to change my eating habit Still looking through the recipes but I am finding some of them interesting

    25. I love Mark Bittman and bought this book to see if a vegan ish diet would be approachable to my husband dedicated carnivore if it came from Bittman Well written, good recipes, fast and easily digestible I prefer to be vegan ish rather than full on vegan we have our own chickens, my son s allergic to dairy so any dairy is a serious treat, and I feel better if I eat fish a few times a week Good to have vegan veganish ideas for my family s mixed table.

    26. A combination of scientific background research, stuff I ve already read in a previous health or wellness book, and recipes menus This books makes a lot of sense to me though that doesnt mean I ll follow it I m not a huge meat eater and never have had much of an appetite for dairy The tough part is all the foods where milk or eggs are in trace amounts I think the bigger idea is that any change you can make,no matter how small, will have a positive impact for you and the earth.

    27. this was a quick read, and the recipes look good too, although I have yet to try them I have been trying out eating vegan breakfasts, and most snacks which I was kind of already doing if I think about it to see how it goes It s a fairly simple plan to follow, and there are lots of options for different styles of eaters, from non cooks to chefs.

    28. I ve already tried the Scrambled Tofu with Spinach and Eggplant Un Parmesanetty good The latter half of the book has lots of recipes to get you on the path to eating veggies, fruit, and whole grains According to Bittman, it only gets easier

    29. decent recipes i have followed him since reading runners world i like the idea of eating vegan for 2 meals goes with my flexitarian, plant based lifestyle.
