Is anyone here on a macrobiotic diet?

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.

Macrobiotic diet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I'll keep checking to see what I can find!

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.

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!

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!

I did find another informative site that has a forum. Maybe they can help.

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.
