With Denny’s forty-five years of macrobiotic counseling experience, he has created an open and positive approach to healthy eating and lifestyle. Instead of the feeling of anxiety and stress to change all habits at once, this approach takes away the pressure by allowing you to build healthy habits when ready. It is never an all or nothing. Denny’s philosophy is every healthy choice is beneficial.
Macrobiotics is a plant-based lifestyle that draws from world traditional civilizations. These traditional diets and lifestyles proven to promote health, vitality, and longevity. Eating a variety of plant-based foods is nourishing and deeply satisfying.
Here are two reasons to choose macrobiotic diet and lifestyle:
- Macrobiotics is not just a diet but a lifestyle. To have long lasting, a healthy lifestyle is just as important as diet. Therefore, macrobiotics practices taking time to eat, making an eating schedule, eating without distractions, and taking daily walks. In a city like Toronto and modern life, our daily tasks and work can trigger us to eat unhealthy and not having a healthy or balanced lifestyle. However, adding one healthy practice can help you feel calmer, less stressed, and do better at work. It is important to take care of yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually.
- Macrobiotics is focused on creating long-term health. For this reason, restricting yourself, only leads to negativity and eventually giving up. Pushing you back to your old habits and foods that make you feel poorly. This is not good. Instead, Denny’s approach is wanting you to feel comfortable and positive about adding healthy choices and sticking with it. It is always worth it even if you just add one healthy choice per day or week.
Keep in mind, there are misconceptions about macrobiotics. This includes unable to eat at restaurants and only Japanese cuisines. These misconceptions are not true. You are still able to go and enjoy restaurants. It is easiest to choose one that has 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, and other parts of Europe.
The first session is focused on creating a clear plan for you, the client, about how to change your health and lifestyle to start feeling better. Remember, this macrobiotic counseling is one-on-one which means the recommendations made by Denny are unique and personalized to meet your health concerns or needs. The discussion with Denny will involve going over what not to do, lifestyle problems and causes, prioritize what you need to do, and discuss home remedies.
Some find one macrobiotic counseling session gets them back on track while other may want to schedule follow up sessions. So it is up to you and what you need to start creating long lasting health.
