Format: Paperback
Macrobiotics first had its roots in America when Michio and his wife, Avelin came to this country in the 1950's with a vision that was "larger than life". Macro-bio-tics is exactly that. And the Macrobiotic Diet, as described in this book (among the many that exist today) is one that doesn't just center around the do's and don'ts of proper eating. It is a lifestyle; it is a way to think about one's body, mind, and soul. When the macrobiotic principles of balance and nutrition are combined with yoga practice and meditation, the result is unity and wholeness. The circle is complete. Michio Kushi does not attempt to burden the reader with instructions on what is good and what is bad. Although some novices to this practice may run into the mistake of treating his "prescriptions" as limits in themselves, the book is meant to describe additions that can be made to one's already existing diet, instead of just pointing out that dairy and meat are "no no's". Though the macrobiotic approach may intimidate or seem too strict at first, it is actually very flexible and open. Otherwise, how can one expect to develop an open mind by following a diet that is limiting and rigid? The other critical point I'd like to note is, however comprehensive the text, passive reading will never substitute for the magic and connection of actually PRACTICING macrobiotics with close friends and family members, or other people familiar with the approach that would be willing to serve as a guide. Never think that you must walk this road alone. The energy you get from macrobiotic cooking should be a source of personal freedom and inspiration that carries you forward and brings you closer to people.Read more ›

I changed my eating pattern to be more macrobiotic, but hybrid with more whole local foods. It is a good guide to the ideas and advantages of a simple, vegetable diet.
