WHET the Macrobiotic diet?

I remember everyone talking about it back in the day.

The very definition of a fad.

Why though? It seems healthy, lots of whole grains and vegetables etc...

by Anonymousreply 2Last Tuesday at 3:58 PM

It was nutritionally sound but it was needlessly complicated. There are many equally (maybe even more) nutritious eating plans that don't take anywhere near the amount of planning and research that macrobiotic took. Waste of time. Strictly for people who enjoy making things as complicated as possible so they can brag about it.

My mum veered between vegetarian and macro my whole childhood and what I've noticed is that while fewer restaurants proclaim themselves macrobiotic now, a lot of the principles that people enjoyed have been absorbed by mainstream vegetarian/vegan restaurants whilst the unpopular ones (the weird rules about limiting fluid, lack of nightshades, saltiness, etc.) are only followed by the hardcore.

I need a deep breath after that run-on sentence.

The Buddha bowls being cradled in millions of Instagram photos are just a modern iteration of the old macro plate.

Kukicha tea is just roasted twigs from a tea plant.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
