But I must tell you, doing macrobiotics based on the traditional vegetarian recommendations of brown rice, seasonal vegetables, and miso soup, in the modern world, is a challenge. It's doable, but not all of your friends or family members are going to be on board.
My body transformed within three months, and I continued to eat in a traditional macrobiotic style for two years just because I enjoyed it. After the two years, I found that I was craving more animal products so I explored eating the foods I used to have before my macrobiotic adventure, to reevaluate how I wanted to live my food lifestyle. Even though I wasn't eating macrobiotically in the traditional sense, I could still take the principles and apply them to any situation. This includes chewing well, having seasonal foods, and eating until you are 80 percent full.
Today, my breakfast might be some Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts, or a smoothie. For lunch I have a chicken patty with lots of veggies and miso soup for digestion. I had a wonderful blueberry tart my friend brought over in the afternoon. Dinner was a special meal with family of steak with cooked veggies.
