What Is The Macrobiotic Diet?

Diet means long life, but otherwise follow up can have serious health consequences . This type of diet or rejects all processed food considered adulterated by being manipulated . The diet goes through ten stages of dietary restriction to carry exclusive feeding grain.

Foods are classified into two categories: Yin and Yang , having to be a harmony between the two to achieve the physical and mental wellbeing. Yin foods are all-natural foods: sugar, fruit, honey or alcohol. Yang foods should limit, some of them are: salty foods, red meat, poultry or coffee.

The diet consists of diets that are numbered -3 to +7. The first five animal foods eliminate progressively becoming more vegetarians. The rest is eliminating processed foods or processed until you reach +7 diet, in which only consumed cereal grains crushed. In addition, it reduces the amount of water consumed, which may lead to dehydration . this diet Features:
  • Foods should be cooked with vegetable oil or water, clay or iron vessel and only salted with sea salt, no salt refined and / or supplemented.
  • Non-consumption of fruits and vegetables treated with manure and fertilizers.
  • It prevents food from countries away from the place where they live.
  • Priority is given to seasonal vegetables.
  • We avoid vegetables like potatoes, eggplants and tomatoes.
  • Nothing spices or chemical ingredients.
  • As fruitive only supported natural Chinese tea or Japanese.
  • They are recommended for cereals with different preparation: rice, wheat, rye, corn, barley, millet ... However not recommend their meal.
  • It minimizes fluid intake.
  • Chewing each mouthful at least 50 times.

Nutritional consequences of diet adherence:
  • As we pass from -3 to +7 diet begin to appear deficient in protein, iron, calcium, vitamins A, D, C and B12.
  • Besides the high presence of philately decreases abosorción of the few minerals that may be, eventually emerging diseases such as anemia, scurvy, hypoglycemia or hipoproteinemias and thus malnutrition.

If you thought that follow a macrobiotic diet was easy you were wrong, to reach the stage -3 to +7 practically should you go to live in the country and cultivate yourself your own cereal and fruit .

Today the fashion of the macrobiotic diet is closer to -3 to +1 diet, which somewhat resemble the ovolactovegetarianas or vegan. What is clear is that strict monitoring part of this type of diet can lead to deficiencies, and follow-up today is virtually impossible, it is rather a part of philosophy that emerged at the beginning of last century, which today vestiges or substitutes.

Macrobiotic Diet

His supporters say the main factor to fight disease is food that nourishes the body and mind as they consider useless antidote use, whether allopathic, homeopathic or naturopathic, if not stop using "poisons" (saturated fats, high amount of sugar and salt, snuff, alcohol and drugs).

Therefore, states that practiced macrobiotics from discipline that aims to provide the means to get rid of bad habits, vices and food constraints imposed by a highly consumerist society.

Also, according to the fundamentals of this regime must be in harmony with nature, so the food choices must be made ??according to each season, climate and health. The macrobiotic diet is a way extreme vegetarianism combined with ideas from Zen Buddhist philosophy has found acceptance among believers in natural feeding and food "organic", and also many dissatisfied with the established social order and the modern food industry. His supporters traverse ten levels of dietary restriction until that feed grain only.

The macrobiotic diet is based mainly on the intake of whole grains such as rice, barley, maize and wheat, which can be eaten boiled, stewed, in soups, pies or cakes. It is also important to add to the fruit and vegetable diet, and for the animal protein that the body requires is advisable to combine the aforementioned foods with lean meat (fat) beef and skinless chicken and fish. addition, the scheme Eat less dairy products, which should be replaced by green leafy vegetables, as they contain lots of vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium, iron and folic acid, which prevents nutrient deficiency. Notably, some say that this diet is prohibitive and can lead his followers to be malnourished, but actually allowed to eat all foods, the key is to choose the best quality balancing quantities.

Balance between yin and yang foods

Classify foods into two categories: ying (Food liabilities) and yang (active food). There must be a balance between yin and yang foods to achieve health and fitness and mental health. For them, some yin foods are: carp, clams, watermelon, potatoes, prunes, sugar, honey and garlic. Horse meat, chicken eggs and duck, pork and caviar are yang. Cereals, and vegetables offer the best balance between yin and yang. Among the nutrients, most B vitamins and vitamin C are ying while soluble (A, D, E and K) and B6 are yang. These classifications are meaningless from any scientific standpoint.

The system consists of a series macrobiotic ten diets that are numbered from -3 to +7. The first five (-3 to +2) include decreasing amounts of animal foods, are practically vegetarian diets. The others are exclusively vegetarian and contain increasing amounts of wheat grains to the diet until 7 which is composed exclusively of crushed cereal grains.

Dehydration problems

This system advises a limitation in the drinking water, which can lead to serious dehydration problems as highlighted in a publication originated precisely to step out into the diets recommended a drinking water restriction (Grande- Covián, 1993). Other ideas unfounded this doctrine is that the body is able to perform the transmutation of chemical elements, whereby, for example, can be produced from sodium potassium and oxygen, which is entirely feasible.

Its use as a slimming diet

According to his followers no disease can not be cured using "natural" food and restricting the drinking water, and any disease is easier to cure the cancer through the use of a macrobiotic diet, especially the grade 7, ie, composed solely of the grain. It is also recommended for use as slimming diet.

A typical macrobiotic diet would consist of:
  • 50-60% of grams of cereal. 
  • 20-25 & vegetables. 
  • 5-10% legumes. 
  • 5% soups.

Seaweed varying proportions

It avoids all types of meat, milk or dairy products, and is usually rare among his followers the vitamin supplements (Kushi & Jack, 1987) often appear so serious nutritional deficiencies. 
thus consuming a macrobiotic diet can lead a protein deficiency, quantitative and qualitative (protein intake of low quality) and a significant deficiency in vitamin B12, C and fat soluble vitamins (A and D). Also, is low in calcium and iron whose absorption is hindered by the presence of phytates. Among nutritional deficiencies detected by consumers of this diet include anemia, scurvy, hypocalcemia and hypoproteinemia. As already mentioned, the drinking water limit recommended by the macrobiotic system is another serious danger. No wonder, therefore, that some of his followers recommending forget everything we know about nutrition. "

Although the macrobiotic diet is a diet old, has been considered as a serious risk to the health of the population (Grand Jury of the State of New Jersey, 1966), knowing deaths among his followers. Currently re-emerged and even women's magazines disclosure presented as a true panacea.

The macrobiotic diet divides foods into two types:

Ying foods
are foods that should be eaten sparingly, because their energy is debilitating: sugar, honey, alcoholic beverages, tropical fruits like banana, mango, kiwi, papaya, pineapple, watermelon, plums, vegetables like potatoes, eggplant, tomato , garlic and beets, milk, white bread, sausages, meat, eggs, clams, vitamin C, spices, processed foods, preserved foods, dyes or chemical ingredients.

Yang foods
are the food needed, because their energy is invigorating: cereals (wheat, rye, corn, barley, millet, oats), vegetables, seaweed, fish occasionally, vitamins A, B6, D, E and K, and vegetables grown without pesticides in home gardens, which has found wide acceptance among food industry rivals. It is very important to prepare steamed food should be cooked with iodized sea salt.

Example menu

A Bancha tea or tea mu 
A cream of millet or rice with cinnamon and raisins sesame rice crackers with sesame puree or vegetable pate

A miso soup or vegetable with seaweed and soy sauce 
A combination plate of boiled rice with kombu seaweed and vegetable protein (legumes, seitan or wheat gluten, tofu or tofu, tempeh or fermented soybeans) 
A little cooked apple or cereal (grits or wheat) with fruit jelly made ??with agar-agar seaweed 
tea bancha A

A tea 
Rice cakes with jam or vegetable paté

A vegetable soup with shiitake (Japanese mushroom) and daikon (turnip species) 
Vegetables steamed rice or some fish

Disadvantages Beware

Take as little protein can lead you to a risk of anemia and malnutrition. With this power have been cases of scurvy and calcium deficiency. Furthermore, as drinking water is restricted, it may suffer from dehydration or renal insufficiency.

As you may have noticed, many of the foods are hard to come by being of Japanese origin (millet, soybean, algae, tempeh, tofu, etc.). And maybe bother you that by not eating much, you can limit your social and family life and surrounding yourself with pure finish macrobiotic friends.

It is convenient to carry out this diet without any medical supervision, because as prevents vitamin supplements, low in calcium and iron, the main allies of women, can cause you nutritional deficiencies.

If you decide to try this diet, it is important to get regular medical examinations to keep track of your levels of iron and vitamin B12.

What To Eat For Breakfast Healthy

Thus, the breakfast healthy provides energy for your body and mind with the fuel you need to think, work and play in better health throughout the day. 

What makes a healthy breakfast?
A healthy breakfast should have foods from different groups, such as two pieces of wheat toast with cream vegetable Becel, a glass of juice or a piece of fruit and a cup of yogurt or milk. These foods provide energy and essential nutrients such as omega 3 and 6, calcium, iron, fiber, vitamin D, B vitamins, folic acid, magnesium, and zinc.

Reduce Your Heart Disease Risk

Heart Disease Risk

If you’ve got a heart, heart disease could be your problem. Heart disease affects women just as much as it does men. But everyone can take steps to reduce their chance of developing the disease.

How? By preventing or controlling behaviors and conditions known to increase its risk. They’re called “risk factors,” and there are two types—those you can change and those you can’t. Luckily, most of them can be changed. These are smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, overweight/obesity, physical inactivity, and diabetes. Those you can’t alter are your age (45 or older for men; 55 or older for women) and having a family history of early heart disease (a father or brother diagnosed before age 55, or a mother or sister diagnosed before age 65).

Start now to improve your heart-health profile. For instance, following a heart healthy eating plan helps prevent or control high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, overweight, and diabetes. Here are some other steps you can take to help protect your heart health:

  • Stop smoking. If you can’t quit the first time, keep trying.
  • Lower high blood pressure. Have your blood pressure checked regularly (once every 2 years if it is normal, more often if it is not). Also, maintain a healthy weight and limit your intake of alcoholic beverages—to one drink a day for women and two for men.
  • Reduce high blood cholesterol. Maintain a healthy weight and get your cholesterol level checked once every 5 years (more often, if needed). The test measures the level of cholesterol circulating in the bloodstream.
  • Aim fo a healthy weight. To lose weight and keep it off, adopt a lifestyle that combines sensible eating with regular physical activity.
  • Be physically active. Do at least 30 minutes of a moderate-intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking, on most and preferably all days of the week.
  • Prevent or manage diabetes. The steps that lower your risk of heart disease also reduce your chance of developing diabetes. If you already have diabetes, be sure to manage it.

What Is High Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is the force of blood against artery walls. It is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and recorded as two numbers—systolic pressure (when the heart beats) over diastolic pressure (when the heart relaxes between beats). Both numbers are important. Blood pressure rises and falls during the day. But when it stays elevated over time, then it's called high blood pressure. High blood pressure is dangerous because it makes the heart work too hard, and the high force of the blood flow can harm arteries and organs such as the heart, kidneys, brain, and eyes. 

High blood pressure often has no warning signs or symptoms. Once it occurs, it usually lasts a lifetime. If uncontrolled, it can lead to heart and kidney disease, stroke, and blindness.  High blood pressure affects more than 65 million—or 1 in 3— American adults. About 28 percent of American adults ages 18 and older, or about 59 million people, have prehypertension, a condition that also increases the chance of heart disease and stroke. 

High blood pressure is especially common among African Americans, who tend to develop it at an earlier age and more often than Whites. It is also common among older Americans—individuals with normal blood pressure at age 55 have a 90 percent lifetime risk for developing high blood pressure.
High blood pressure can be controlled if you take these steps:
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Be moderately physically active on most days of the week.
  • Follow a healthy eating plan, which includes foods lower in sodium.
  • If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation.
  • If you have high blood pressure and are prescribed medication,take it as directed.
All steps but the last also help to prevent high blood pressure.


Overweight and Obesity

Overweight and obesity pose major health risks. First, they increase the risk of heart disease. Second, they make you more likely to develop other factors that also increase that risk. For instance, overweight and obesity increase your chance of developing high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol (see following sections), and diabetes—all major risk factors for heart disease.

So it’s important to stay at a healthy weight. There’s no gimmick to achieving this goal. The amount of calories you take in through your diet should not exceed the amount you expend through body metabolism and physical activities. If you eat morecalories than you use up, you’ll gain weight. But, even a small decrease in calories eaten can help keep you from gaining weight.If you are overweight, losing just 10 percent of your current weight helps to lower your risk of heart disease. If you can’t lose extra weight just yet, then try not to gain more.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your weight in check:
  1. Watch out for portion size. It’s not just what you eat, but how much.
  2. Choose fewer high-fat foods. These often have more calories than the same amount of other foods.
  3. But be careful of “lowfat” foods. They aren’t always low in calories. Sometimes, extra sugars are added to lowfat items, such as desserts. They can be just as high in calories as regular versions.
