I learned so much about nutrition from Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I learned so much about nutrition from this book. I had no idea that food had such healing properties. The recipes are good too. I haven't been as disciplined as I should about cutting out the junk food, so I haven't seen any real weight loss.
But, small steps for me towards health. Easy to read basics of Macrobiotics. I took up Macro 25 years ago when my teenage son was suffering from many ailments we learned was CFS.
See a Problem?
At the time popular thought was that it was a drummed up ailment for goldbrickers. The results of following this plan were so positive that we stuck with it for about 12 - 15 years then slowly drifted away as he went of to college, law school and the "convenience" of the standard eating habits.
Macro does limit your social life and I too strayed. Now that I'm 70 the ailments of arthritis, fatigue, high blood pressure etc. I wanted to get back into a routine maybe a little less restrictive than that which I had 25 years ago. I came across this book on Amazon and recalled taking my son to see Verne Varona way back then. He made a big difference in our lives at that time so I figured I'd give it another shot. It's a comprehensive and easy to read explanation of the lifestyle with plenty of simple recipes and remedies. Great for beginners or returnees or those that are just interested in one of the many ways to health and restoration.
My energy levels are up, sleep is improved, arthritic pain reduced and I'm still checking with the MD to see if I can reduce some of the BP meds. You can also have fresh fish and seafood, locally grown fruit, pickles, and nuts several times a week. Rice syrup is one of the sweeteners you can have occasionally. You're discouraged from eating dairy, eggs, poultry, processed foods, refined sugars, and meats, along with tropical fruits, fruit juice, and certain vegetables like asparagus, eggplant, spinach, tomatoes, and zucchini. And spicy stuff is frowned on no habaneros here! The macrobiotic diet will take consistent effort, but it's more flexible than it may seem.
Depending on your choices, you can start slow, moving from one level of intensity to the next. Because macrobiotics is as much a philosophy of life as it is a diet, the effort it takes largely depends on how deeply you choose to delve into the diet, and on a larger scale, the philosophy or spiritual system behind it. Chewing each mouthful of food at least 50 times is standard macrobiotic practice. So is pausing to express gratitude for your food before you eat it.
This plan also recommends that you eat two to three times a day and stop before you're full. Foods are mostly baked, broiled, or steamed. Some devotees avoid cooking with electricity, and use pots, pans, and utensils made from naturally occurring materials, like glass. And, of course, the time to make it all from scratch.

Regular exercise is encouraged. Kind of an annoying and cutesy tone throughout.
