No Expensive Supplements
Beginning the macrobiotic way of eating does not require any supplements or plant extracts. It simply necessitates you learning how to eat a well-rounded, plant-based diet. This is much easier than it may sound once you get into the groove of it and learn about all the amazing food nature provides for us. When done right, this diet can provide all the essential nutrients humans need, including vitamins, minerals, protein, healthy carbs, and all those micronutrients that are so overlooked in the average modern diet.
No Intense Exercising
The macrobiotic diet does not require you to exercise intensively or to have an exact workout that you stick to every day. It does recommend that you try and get 30 minutes of walking, yoga, or other physical activity in a day. That, however, is just common sense for keeping your body healthy. The macrobiotic diet emphasizes respecting your body, not being too extreme on it, both in the eating department and when exercising. Therefore, it is a great, healthy diet for everyone even if you suffer from physical limitations.
No Calorie Counting
Another plus of the macrobiotic diet is that there is no calorie counting. Cutting and counting one’s calorie consumption is a common practice of dieters. This can be a somewhat effective weight-loss method, however, it never beats just eating right in the first place! Once you learn the basics of macrobiotics, which is simply learning how to build a healthy plant-based meal with simple guidelines, there will be no need for counting calories.
No Expensive Plans
Macrobiotics does not have a plan that requires purchasing. There are, however, references you can look into including a lot of books on the topic, such as “The Ultimate Guide to Eating For Longevity”, by Denny and Susan Waxman. Denny Waxman is a public counselor, teacher, and author on the subject of macrobiotics. Susan Waxman is If you want to get a more hands-on, in-depth grasp of how to practice a macrobiotic lifestyle, you can take a course at SHI Macrobiotics.
Again, the biggest difference between the GOLO diet and taking on a macrobiotic view of nutrition is that GOLO was developed by a team of people. There is no actual peer-reviewed proof that the GOLO diet works and the complete list of ingredients in the Release tablet remain a mystery. Whereas macrobiotics, on the other hand, is taken from the observations of how our ancestors have eaten and taken care of their bodily temples for thousands of years.
