The principle behind the Macrobiotic diet
The macrobiotic diet consists of ten stages. It’s based on the principle that simple eating is the key to long and healthy life. Each stage restricts your diet just a little bit more. At the tenth stage of the diet, you are just going to be eating brown rice, and water. It does get a little difficult towards the end, because of the extreme restrictions placed on the diet towards the end. However, unlike other diets, you would not have to quit food cold turkey (which would lead to cravings). This gradual dieting can help in the long run.
