Description

Heralded by New York magazine as one of the city's most popular diets, macrobiotics has become the latest trend in dieting, thanks to high-profile supporters like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.



Speaking to the generation of young women looking to extend their healthy lifestyles beyond yoga and Pilates, macrobiotic chef and instructor Jessica Porter offers fresh, contemporary, and accessible insight into one of the world's oldest, yet most popular, diets. She explains that by eating good quality whole foods, any woman can experience physical, sensory, emotional, and intellectual freedom.



The effects of eating a macrobiotic diet can extend beyond basic health to weight loss, beauty, better sex, and peace of mind. Cooking tips and recipes are combined with Jessica's no-nonsense philosophy and witty anecdotes to create a lifestyle book that will inspire women to hit the kitchen with an understanding of how to strengthen their minds and bodies through food.

    The author was successful in presenting a good introduction to macrobiotics. But she also maintained it to be the magic solution - for everything in your life. No need to work on your relationships with family, friends, co-workers and life in general. All you have to do is eat the macrobiotic way and your life will be perfect. There was that as well as it seemed she got much of her 'scientific' claims from whatever popped up in Google. Evidence-based medicine, peer-reviewed literature, quality sources??? ahh.. who needs them to write a book about diet and nutrition. Someone, somewhere on the Internet can be found that have made the most outlandish claims and we'll just use that for our data...

    This book is an eye opening for me. Jessica Porter is a great writer, entertainer and a achiever in healthy mind and body. she has a way of explaining very easily what Macrobiotics is all about. While reading this book, I have started to be a Macrobiotics person. I feel better already.
