Macrobiotic Diet

From the Greek for "great life," macrobiotic dieters believe that the key to a long, healthy life is a balanced diet.

Benefits Of Macrobiotic Diet

A macrobiotic diet is naturally low in fat, sugar, and calories, so faithful followers typically lose weight and keep it off.

Individuals who maintain a macrobiotic lifestyle tend to consume plenty of vitamins as well as high doses of dietary fiber, which aids digestion and helps protect against heart disease, diabetes, stroke and many cancers.

Macrobiotic diets are considered safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women (though a multivitamin may be recommended to ensure the fetus is getting enough iron and calcium). Children and teens can also follow a macrobiotic diet.
