Is there anyone on a macrobiotic diet here? I have a friend that swears by it but I think it is mostly because it eliminates all nightshade vegetables. Has anyone stopped eating nightshades and discovered this to be helpful?

Hi Gloryroad,
   I just had to look at this because I have never heard of a macrobiotic diet, but now I see it eliminates nightshades. Hopefully, someone will come along soon that has tried this and tell their experience.

I can eat nightshades provided I am feeling well at the time. If I eat them when flaring I get gastroenteritis and end up wishing that death was available in 24hr intervals.

Hi Glory,
I have followed a macro based diet for many years now. I don't eat nightshade vegies. I know that the diet has kept digestive issues to a mininum. I am a strong believer in macrobiotics. It is difficult for me to follow as my family does not eat this way, and isn't supportive. Sea vegitables take some time to get used hubbie likes maki, sushi, and a couple of sea vegitables. My little one will eat brown rice products. We don't have milk in the house, we drink soy milk and rice milk.
Good luck with the diet, it's a positive !!! Peaceful
