My husband and I used to really be into macrobiotics, and to this day I go thru periods where I really crave the food. It's definitely more than just brown rice!

If you live near a larger city, there are clubs and groups for people who do this, even cafe's that cater to this style. One of them is near here at a Denny's, check online to see, or look on the web sites of hospitals or health clinics, dietitians offices. It's easier if you talk to people you see face to face.
Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I'm all about "natural" and balanced as well as probiotics. But I will never go vegetarian as a guarantee for health. -- Nevertheless, I do make note of the fact that fruits & veggies will typically almost always be far more nutrient-rich than either processed foods or other fillers.
I like many of the premises of "Eat to Live" --in terms of being a "nutritarian" vs. a vegetarian.

What is macrobiotics? Is it brown rice and vegetables? That's what I read somewhere but maybe I'm wrong. I'm on a vegan diet which is good for your heart and can help you lose weight as well. I eat lots of fruit and vegetables, grains and beans which has helped me to drop a few pounds. I'm careful with my diet because I have congestive heart failure. What kinds of foods do you eat?

Hi, I am returning to SparkPeople after a long hiatus because I became sole caregiver to my mother. It was probably the most difficult task I have ever undertaken. It was also the worst thing I could have done for my health. In attending a Care Givers Conference, I learned some very scary statistics that rocked me to my core.
Because of the health history of the women in my family I chose to take on the Macrobiotic lifestyle because Heart Disease stops here! The last five generations of women in my family have all died of obesity and heart disease. I am determined to change that.
So... I am looking for others who are on this food plan.
