Re: Misogi - The diet part

Yes Janet, that's true. Everybody is unique and off the shelf dieting isn't going to help much. The most sensible approach would be to use good common sense and hope it hasn't been compromised by old wives tales.

Moderation is key.

Eating naturally is probably good too. I.e. Eating locally produced food stuff and according to seasons, the Indonesians tell me they eat healthier because they don't rely on the fridge as much as we do. Instead they buy fresh produce daily.

As for brown rice. Yeah well I eat that. Carbs are carbs...if you don't use them, prepare to get fat.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
