Macrobiotics is an approach to physical and emotional
wellness through consuming foods that are balanced energetically
(between yin and yang) and nutritionally. It is typically a well-balanced
diet with high fibre, low fat, lots of vegetables and grains,
vegetable protein, and limited meat, with an emphasis on eating
seasonal organic food.
Variety is worked into the meal to ensure that a wide range of
nutrients are consumed for balance and enjoyment.
Some celebrities who are known to have tried the macrobiotic
lifestyle include: Gwyneth Paltrow, Barbara Streisand, John
Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Yoko Ono and the late John Lennon,
, Joe Pesci, Steven Seagal, Mike Maloney, Roland Gift, Alicia
Sliverstone, Sting, Dirk Benedict and Boy George.
