Biblical Diets

hallelujahdiet135 The “Hallelujah Diet” seems to be positioning itself as the Maranatharized version of Atkins. In this article, creators of the “Makers Diet” (another biblical diet) criticize its claim to be “God’s perfect eating plan” and offer a better alternative.
The Skinny on Biblical Diets? I would have to say the best one would be the “Whatever Diet”, taken from Genesis 2. Adam could eat WHATEVER he wanted from any tree (except one). Adam didn’t get weird about it, he didn’t separate the trees further into fat and non-fat. Nor did he demand organic status. He just ate whatever.
I think moderation and contentment have more to do with successful dieting than choice of foods. But what do i know- I’m skinny.

    Though of course at that point they were vegetarian as the Seventh Day Adventists will point out; it wasn’t until Noah that permission for meat eating is given. So the Eden diet is vegetarian.
    You know it makes sense! -Just reading that meat eaters require 45,000 square feet of land to feed them, whereas veggies only 9,000 … so if you want to lower your ecological footprint cut out or cut down the meat.

    moderation and exercise…i’m not skinny and i practice neither. fad diets all die eventually. i just hope atkins takes a hike soon. we’ll see it again under a different name in 20 years, anyway.
    we should start a new program…jogging while blogging…jogblogging…

    btw, jogging was invented in New Zealand . . . according to the Nike book. I was jogging in NZ when i was only 11, and that was a loooooong time ago.
    jogblogging is a good idea – it could not happen through computer or phone, but audio blogging would be a way to accomplish that – speak into a mic and upload to the blog while jogging . . yeah . . . why not?
