    The Macrobiotic Diet is one that uses foods that are “balanced energetically and nutritionally”. The diet is aimed to include high fiber and low fat foods, with lots of vegetables and grains and little meat. You are encouraged to eat whole grains, green leafy vegetables, round vegetables, roots, beans, lentils, miso, and drink spring water and certain teas and mixed grain coffee. There are other foods on the diet that are allowed but sparingly, such as fish, seeds and nuts, sweeteners, fruits, flour products and others.
