When we first began counseling nutrition we learned quickly that just as a picture is worth 1000 words, providing a week of meals combined with counseling was 1000 times more effective than counseling alone. After eating a week of meals clients would tell us in sessions all the benefits they had noticed while experiencing this new way of eating and out of that came excitement and motivation to improve further because they already knew first-hand what was possible.
We have created two programs, one with a weight-loss menu, and one with a menu promoting detox, that we combine with an hour of counseling that can be split into two sessions if desired. The benefit of counseling is that it can help you to understand better what changes you can make in your own diet beyond eating the meals we provide. This can enhance your experience and also help you to maintain the benefits you achieve when eating on your own.*
I was having severe pain in my abdomen and my doctor diagnosed me with having gall stones. I did not want to have surgery, at least at that time, and she suggested a change in diet might help.
My doctor introduced me to Jeremy and Maria (J&M), who introduced me to the macrobiotic way of eating. They immediately e-mailed information to read about macrobiotics, and sent several simple recipes to get me started.
My husband was willing to change his way of eating with me... and so we started immediately. The recipes from Jeremy and Maria were simple, and once I found the ingredients, with help from J&M, were simple and quick to make. The most difficult part for me was cooking a new way, but once I settled in my mind to look at this as learning to cook for the first time, it became easier. The pain I was feeling in my abdomen was almost gone. J&M spoke with me weekly, encouraged me constantly.
As the weeks went by, more recipes arrived by e-mail, and J&M kept in touch with me. What was helpful is they asked me to keep a journal of what I was eating daily, e-mail it to them, along with questions I had, and they would respond letting me know what I was missing in my diet, and foods to add to it. Recipes were a constant, delicious, easy to make, and very much appreciated.
Soon, my husband and I noticed we were losing weight - what a bonus, especially for my husband who has always struggled with his weight and constantly trying new diets. The bonus.... this wasn't even a diet. We were enjoying what we were eating. We found we had more energy. We never felt that bloated feeling you have when you eat too much at dinner. And some of the recipes were so delicious, that we did eat a lot - just never felt bloated.
Jeremy & Maria taught us how to change our diets without having to become fanatics. We do not miss the foods we removed from our diet, don't even think about them.
J&M taught me a lot about the foods we eat, and how our system digests and uses the nutrients from them. We feel lucky to have met Jeremy and Maria, they have changed the way we look at food, and what to look for when checking ingredients. We are happy to have changed our way of eating and feeling much better about it. Can't even imagine eating the way we used to.
As I look back, J&M made the change in eating go quite smoothly.*
Earlier this week the drug regime that aimed at treating my persistent hypertension was changed. My physician dropped the drug, Diltiagem (180 mg daily), from my prescriptions. He feels it is likely that my 20lb weight loss, the consequence of my diet changes since early October 2007, is a likely reason my current blood pressure readings have been consistently normal for several weeks. Thus the decision to drop this drug from my medications list. The changes in my diet have been due to my working with Macro-Mediterranean Holistic Nutrition. They have helped me to achieve things I never would have thought possible at my age (77). I feel the best I have in years. The tireless energy and increased mental clarity have been things I wouldn't have expected. Thank You!*
The food at Macro-Mediterranean is not only delicious, but it nurtures our bodies, keeping us looking and feeling good. It really is the most intelligent way to eat... lots of whole grains, veggies and good proteins.
Eating the Macro-Mediterranean way has been key to Alec's weight-loss and helped us both prepare, not only for our wedding, but for the many public appearances that we do.
We are so happy we get to eat Macro-Mediterranean, as there is nothing better or more convenient than this delivery service.*
Before I consulted with Macro-Mediterranean, I was completely ignorant about a macrobiotic lifestyle. Now I understand the importance of incorporating whole grains into my diet and the significance of avoiding processed foods.
When I shop, I purchase seasonal, locally grown produce. Although my husband and I still eat conventional foods (some fish, lean meat and poultry), overall we are eating a much healthier diet. My husband, who is predisposed to abnormally high cholesterol levels, has reduced his cholesterol level during the last few months.*
