Most weight loss approaches sell us the belief that over time the body wants to gain weight against our will. They tell us that with weight-loss our body is our enemy. So we must starve it for calories, poison it with a high-protein diet, etc..
These methods of “strong-arming” our body into losing weight are generally not sustainable. If maintained for an extended period, it is usually at the expense of our health, or even years off our life.
At Macro-Mediterranean we partner with the body to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Macrobiotics considers being overweight an imbalance that can be caused by poor diet. If we correct this imbalance, weight loss and improved health often follow.
Many eating habits don’t provide the body with the nutrients and balance it needs to be healthy. As a result, many of us suffer from unstable blood sugars, and cravings for food when we shouldn’t be hungry.
This often leads to an unhealthy eating cycle where the body doesn’t get everything it needs and can result in weight gain. The whole-foods rich, plant-based diet found in macrobiotics can help break this cycle.
If we think of diet as our primary way of conversing with our body, it is as if we have been speaking the wrong language to it for years.
When we start nourishing our body in a way it can understand it will usually respond right away. Within a few weeks many clients say they are less hungry, have more energy and are losing weight.
If we look at traditional diets like the Mediterranean diet, this is the way most humans have always eaten. Diets rich in whole-grains, legumes and vegetables have been the norm throughout history. There is no secret to this, these ingredients are the easiest to grow and so were the most available.
The tragedy is that our society has convinced us that a diet poor in these ingredients can be “normal”. Many of us have even lost the knowledge of how to cook these ingredients in a pleasing way. As a result we are living in the sickest, most obese society in history. This is affecting our quality of life, happiness, and the health of our planet.
We have found that providing first-hand experience is the easiest way to learn something new. Our weight-loss meal delivery programs can help you to experience eating in this way.
We hope this can be your answer to sustainable weight loss and the discovery of a healthier you.*
