Making the Transition to a Macrobiotic Diet

Carolyn Heidenry, Author Avery Publishing Group $11.95 (112p) ISBN 978-0-89529-363-3
Neither a cookbook nor a treatise on the theory of macrobiotics, this volume falls into the category of general advice and exhortation, with emphasis on the word ""general.'' The book is slim (99 pages) with huge type, and the information it conveys is scanty. Heidenry enumerates the categories of foods allowed on a macrobiotic diet, sensibly endorses gradualism in changing diets and then contents herself with self-evident statements, such as that one one can nurse a glass of mineral water instead of drinking a nonmacrobiotic cocktail; one needs a macrobiotic cookbook to enjoy the full variety of foods the diet affords.
