I really don’t enjoy macrobiotic foods. Don’t get me wrong, there are some excellent dishes out there based on the diet than are tasty — but for a few of my friends that follow it strictly, it just seems  a bit rough. If you’re keen to lose some weight, get back on the healthy side of life, and quickly change body shape — then it might be for you. I’ll stick to regular exercise and a varied diet rich in organic fruits and veggies.

Now ask Gwyneth Paltrow about the issue and you might received a mixed answer. On one hand, she lived the macrobiotic lifestyle for four years. When she became pregnant, it was shown the door in favor of friend food like “Fish and Chips”. Today, she’s still enjoying eating whatever she likes, much to the chagrin of her personal trainer. From the article,

“The Oscar-winning beauty stopped eating a solely macrobiotic diet after becoming pregnant, and now feasts many foods that are bad for her. While drinking a pint of Guinness, she told British talk show host Jonathan Ross in an interview, which will air on UK TV tomorrow: ‘I love anything fried, fish and chips, and Branston pickle and I love red wine.’”
