Everything you need to know about the Macrobiotic Diet
A macrobiotic diet in translation means diet which ensures “long life”. And if you are connecting it with only weight loss, you are wrong, because it is much more than that, it is a way of life. Macrobiotics encourages eating regularly, staying active, chewing your food properly and maintaining a positive mental outlook. The macrobiotic first appeared around the end of nineteenth century, when Doctor George Ohsawa from Japan, established the theory of nutrition based on the Oriental diet. He believed that simplicity is the key to optimal health and he was right. The macrobiotic diet is proven to prevent and cure several diseases, including diabetes, cancer and heart diseases. Macrobiotic diet is a way to balance the yin yang, the two complementary energy forms that are present in all foods, people and objects. The two energies must be in good balance in order to achieve health and vitality.
People who are completely devoted to the macrobiotic are allowed to consume a small amount of fish and seafood, but only 1 to 3 times a week. Fish and seafood should be ideally prepared with wasabi, ginger and mustard to detoxify the body from the effects of fish and seafood.
