My mom was macrobiotic when I was a baby. I don't think I could ever eat that kind of a diet, even though it is super healthy. If you can do it, more power to you! I could use a bit of it in my life to get unaddicted to sugar and carbs!

My mom's friend ate a macrobiotic diet when she was having chemo because it helped her immune system. She said it was pretty tough to stick to, but it DID help her out. I don't think I'd be able to stick to it, but it's a good way to eat if you're into it. I think Madonna follows a macro diet, if I'm not mistaken.

I have been slowly going macrobiotic but it's a little difficult because to be truly macro you have to know what fruits and veggies are naive to your hemisphere and area and when they are truly in-season and when they are not. Plus you have to locate all the sea vegetables and things and learn to make the basic soups and stocks in order to have it be an easy and smooth transition. The book I have (Macrobiotic Cookbook by Aveline Kushi & Wendy Esko)is really helpful but its just going to take practice to get the hang of being truly Macrobiotic.
