Is anyone here on a macrobiotic diet?

Recommended Posts

So recently I've been trying to change my entire dietary intakes. I've been trying as hard as I can to go vegan but I just can't seem to give up the fish or the chicken sometimes.

 

This woman I know was telling me that she eats macrobiotic which I had always heard of b/c of celebrities like Madonna and Gwenyth Paltrow. I was randomly doing research just to check it out and some it sounded great but it seems really hard to follow. I was wondering if anyone eats macrobiotic and if they could give me a resource for trying to learn where to begin. I should also preface by saying that I'm not trying to go on a diet I just want a lifestyle change.

Erin I actually read this before you posted it but I guess what I don't get is that I understand their percentage breakdown but I don't understand how much of it to eat. For example they say that your diet should consist of 50-60% of brown rice or whole grains. But how much brown rice do I eat in one serving KWIM? That is what I am confused about.

 

I've noticed that a lot of people that are on macrobiotic diets tend to be lean but how can they be so lean when 60% of their diet consists of brown rice? I dunno I think I'm just confused. LOL.

This one has recipies:

Macrobiotic diet basics, recipes, cooking DVD

This is a British site, but looks to have some good info:

Macrobiotic Guide | Your Essential Guide to Macrobiotics Online

 

I find (and advise clients) that the best thing to do when starting a new eating regiment is to physically write out everything for the first week. Go shopping and get everything you need at once. If the products are handy, you'll be more likely to follow it. This also means you have to get rid of your old foods so you aren't tempted.

 

You can also buy some new tupperware or some type of caontainer and make meals ahead of time and keep them in the fridge so you are only cooking 2 or 3 days per week.

 

Here is a listing (random) about macrobiotic food delivery.Macrobiotic Diet --- Lunch, Dinner Pick Up, Delivery

 

I don't know the cost, but it might help to have food deliver for the first month or so as you learn how to each, etc.

 

This is one thing I do for my clients. I've had a few ask about macrobiotics but I've never done it. Most are vegetarian, diabetic, heart healthy, bariatric, etc.

 

Keep me posted on what you find!

Erin upon closer examination I think (if I understood correctly) that the focus in not on how much you ingest just on what you are ingesting. So in other words they don't focus on the portion so much as balancing the types of foods you eat to make sure you don't overstimulate your body (with foods such as sugar and alcohol) or stagnate your body (with foods that make you feel sluggish).

 

There are so many books out there I was just hoping someone would know of a good one. I haven't even heard of half of the vegetables they mention. LOL. I guess I'll go on Amazon and read reader's reviews to figure out which one might be a good guide. I think I'm going to try this b/c I'm so sick of feeling sluggish. I want to feel revived and with energy!

That is how the Zone works. You just have to keep your percentages balanced. You can have a big steak, but you better eat a ton of veggies, LOL

I love brown rice and veggies so I could def see myself doing this. I also love miso soup, beans and nuts. I know you can have some fish on this. But I don't know how I feel about giving up dairy. Sometimes a girl wants an omlette KWIM?

Ok so I did a ton of research yesterday and I decided to purchase this book (which meant I called my dad and begged him to buy it for me).

 

Amazon.com: The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics: A Philosophy for Achieving a Radiant Mind and a Fabulous Body: Jessica Porter: Books

 

Its called the Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics. I read good reviews on it. Supposedly it explains it the best out of all the other macrobiotic books so I'll let everyone know if its good once I finish reading it.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
    • Hi all!  My daughter who's portrait, lifestyle, fashion, family photographer for over 5 years now is willing to expand into the wedding photography and videography. She's working really hard and I want to support her as much as I can. Does anyone could use a 2nd shooter in their wedding? She would deliver all digital photos with no cost. Just so she could start building up her portfolio. Who could say no to free high quality photos and video?? I can share her current porfolio if anyone is interested.
