How to lose weight with Macrobiotic diet

Home « Trends « News

I must admit that I knew nothing about this diet.

Since this diet, which is actually a lifestyle, Gwyneth Paltrow says she feels happy and beautiful.

Come see what is macrobiotic diet:

The word "macrobiotic" comes from Greek and means "beautiful life" or "long life".

The macrobiotic diet was initiated by a Japanese philosopher named George Ohsawa, who wanted to find a healthy diet that will prevent disease and also to heal himself being sick.

The diet is based on foods that contain equally yin and yang, such as cereals, fish and some food, provided that all come directly from nature, unadjusted raw.

Sweet foods are yin, and yang are the salt.

The diet is a link to the surrounding nature, the quality of which depends on over 90% of our health.

Interestingly, this diet is not only natural food, organic bulk vegetable, but a relaxed attitude and inner life fulfilled.

Basically, rather than food, this diet focuses on the spiritual life, the attitude, the way life is perceived and how harmoniously the elements of yin and yang swing.

As you've heard many times, the food must be chewed patiently to be well digested. And this diet is going on the same principle.

If you decide to keep this diet, you are free to eat foods as you wish for them to combine and cook for your own taste.

What foods are allowed?

Whole grains and derivatives thereof: brown rice, barley, whole wheat and oats. They represent 50-60% of the macrobiotic diet, being consumed daily cooked or as germs.

Fresh vegetables or cooked in soups represent approximately 30% of daily food: beans, lentils, soybeans, cabbage, bok choy (Chinese cabbage), broccoli, cauliflower, onions, zucchini, turnips, carrots, radishes.

In terms of fruit, fresh or dried fruits are allowed: apples, pears, berries, strawberries, grapes, apricots, prunes, raisins, watermelon.

Fish is recommended 3-4 times per week, especially cod, carp, turbot, bream, trout.

For seasoning food, turn with confidence to vegetable oils sesame, coconut, sea salt and some spices unrefined soy.

As recommended drink plain water, not the miners.

If you get hungry for something sweet, about two to three times a week in moderation, you can eat foods that are naturally sweet (like fruit juice) and natural sweeteners such as rice syrup or malt.

Instead, I must say goodbye to sugar, honey, molasses, chocolate or other sweets or sweeteners.
