Text from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrobiotic_diet (more info thru link)
"Macrobiotics is considered an approach to life rather than a diet. Some general guidelines for the diet are the following (it is also said that a macrobiotic diet varies greatly, depending on geographical and life circumstances):
Well chewed whole cereal grains, especially brown rice: 40–60%
Beans and legumes: 5–10%
Miso soup: 5%
Sea vegetables: 5%
Traditionally or naturally processed foods: 5–10%
Fish and seafood, seeds and nuts, seed and nut butters, seasonings, sweeteners, fruits, and beverages may be enjoyed occasionally, 2-3 times per week. Other naturally raised animal products may be included if needed during dietary transition or according to individual needs."
