VB-6, "Vegan Before 6pm"

New York Times columnist Mark Bittman tells NPR about his new philosophy on losing weight and saving the environment. He calls it "VB6 — Vegan Before 6[pm]" During the day, he eats fruits vegetables and grains, but after 6, he eats what he wants.

While many vegans may scoff at this concept of calling yourself any type of vegan when you still eat dairy (or in his case meat), I like it as a transitional approach to going vegan and eating healthier. Start small and build.

However, for those of you who like the idea, but have no intention of doing it full time, go for it. Any effort should be applauded.
