Great Guide Oct. 11 2010

Having several books on Macrobiotic Diet, I almost didn't buy another one. But this one is great, printed in a relaxing green ink. Well informed, and explained. Great appealing recipes, I have marked several for immediate cooking.
I encourage beginners to get a great understanding from this lovely author.
I await new cookbooks from her!

Very excellent recipe book to get you going on a Macrobiotic diet - or simply to eat better for optimal health. You won't believe how quickly you can transform your entire life by eating from the recipes in this book. It even includes the theory behind the diet as well as pointing out how each recipe can help an imbalance or disease issue you may have. Highly recommended!

This is a great book for anyone starting out in macrobiotics. I bought it for a friend who wanted to know more. I think this book is a great place to start.
Even for those of us who have been practicing for a while, it is a good review.
The recipes alone are a reason to have this book.

Includes easy to understand info on relevant topics such as chi, yin/yang and balanced eating - highly recommend! Nov. 1 2012

I cannot recommend the Everything Guide to Macrobiotics enough. GET THIS BOOK if you are a typical American living the Standard American Diet (sad, I know... but that is how many of us were raised..) and now feel tried, drained, lack concentration and likely are battling chronic illnesses and health concerns prevalent in our society such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart Disease, Cancer, Obesity, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, Insomnia, Irritability, Depression, or any other of a very long list of diagnosis.

Everything Guide to Macrobiotics explains important topics in a very easy to understand manner including yin/yang and how to balance naturally, chi (energy) simply by selecting different foods or combining several foods, such as why to use lemon juice with fish or why it is important to drink wine with meat but not certain other alcohols (yes, in many cases it is very healthy to enjoy a single glass of quality red wine with a steak dinner.)

Everything Guide also includes approx 150 recipes (many of which are easy to prepare) along with a suggested weekly menu for each of the 4 seasons (again a subject which is sorely lacking from our cultural knowledge...)

I am an obese woman who was formerly an athlete until sustaining a life-altering injury then a cascading series of medical complications led to several life-threatening diagnosis and am now once again disabled, permanently. Yet, despite not being able to work out and NOT believing in starvation fad diets either, I have garnered information from Everything Guide to Macrobiotics that has helped me on my journey to eat smarter to help me lose this stubborn weight. I am currently on target to lose 10% in 8 weeks, that's quite an accomplishment!

I love this book so much! I have a lot of different books I reference daily, but I have a feeling this one will soon take the place of many of them. The recipes are easy to follow and the ones I have tried so far, are really good.
