Denny has forty-five years of macrobiotic counseling experience and has adapted his macrobiotic approach to fit into modern day life. Every healthy choice is beneficial. That is why he recommends adding healthy meals and practices at your own pace. When a diet expects someone to change all habits and food choice at once, it only leads to frustration and giving up. Instead, Denny’s approach is adding and building more healthy habits when feeling comfortable to do so. It is never an all or nothing. (Here is more info on Denny and his experience as macrobiotic counselor NYC.)
Macrobiotic diet is a plant-based lifestyle that draws from traditional diets and habits proven to promote health, vitality, and longevity. Diets that are restrictive only lead to negativity. And often a person will go back to old habits. Instead, macrobiotics is about implementing simple but powerful practices into your daily life. It is still worth it even if just adding one healthy meal or practice per week.
Also macrobiotics is not just a diet but a lifestyle. When it comes to long term health, lifestyle is just as important as a diet. To have strong health, you need to take care of yourself mentally and spiritually. In macrobiotics, lifestyle practices includes taking time to eat, eating without distractions, spending time with family and friends, making a regular eating schedule, gardening, and taking a walk. In a chaotic city like New York, an unhealthy lifestyle can create anxiety and depression. But adding daily healthy practices during the day will help you to be calmer, less stressed, and energetic. This will not only benefit your personal life but also your work. Everyone works better when they feel great both inside and out.
Keep in mind, misconceptions about macrobiotics are unable to eat at restaurants and only eat foods based on Japanese cuisine. However, these are not true. One is able to go to restaurants on a macrobiotic diet and lifestyle. Just choose a restaurant with vegetable and grain dishes on the menu. Furthermore, macrobiotic cuisines are any type of Asian, Middle Eastern, North-African, Mediterranean, and other parts of Europe.
