Not only does Denny have forty-five years of macrobiotic counseling experience but his macrobiotic approach has been updated to fit into modern day life. On top of it, Denny’s philosophy is every healthy choice is beneficial. This means you can add healthy meals and practices at your own pace. When it comes to other diets, it can be overwhelming to have the pressure to change your habits and food choices all at once. Often this type of approach leads only to giving up. Instead, we want you to feel positive and comfortable as you build healthy habits. It is never an all or nothing. (Here is more info on Denny and his experience as macrobiotic counselor.)
Macrobiotic diet is a plant-based lifestyle that draws from traditional diets and lifestyles proven to promote health, vitality, and longevity. These cuisines are all nourishing and deeply satisfying.
You should choose macrobiotics for two reasons.
The first is macrobiotics is not just about the diet but also lifestyle habits and practices. These practices include taking time to eat, making an eating schedule, or taking a walk. In a city like Los Angeles, life can quickly become chaotic and trigger us to go back to unhealthy eating. However, learning healthy practices can help you feel calmer, less stressed, and more relaxed. A more likely to stay on a macrobiotic diet and to keep choosing a healthy choices.
The second reason is macrobiotics is about creating long-term health. When you try to restrict yourself of everything, you end up feeling negative. This results in you quitting and going back to your old habits and foods. That is not what macrobiotics wants for you. Instead, we want you to feel comfortable and positive about making that healthy choice and to stay with it. It is still worth it even if you just add one healthy choice per day.
Keep in mind, some misconceptions on macrobiotics is you are not able to eat at restaurants and it is only based on Japanese cuisines. Both are untrue. You can still go to restaurants but choose one that will have vegetables and grains on the menu. And macrobiotics is a multi-cultural fusion of the unique health-supporting traditions and cuisines from around the world. Other macrobiotic cuisines include any type of Asian, Middle Eastern, North-African, Mediterranean, or other parts of Europe.
The first session is creating a clear direction for you, the client, about how to change your health and lifestyle. The great thing about being one-on-one with a macrobiotic counselor is the recommendations will be unique and personalized for your health concerns or needs. This means going over what not to do, lifestyle problems and causes, prioritize what you need to do, and discuss home remedies. You may find you just need the one macrobiotic counseling session to get back on track or you may want to schedule follow up sessions. It is really up to you!
