While a radical diet and lifestyle change often seems overwhelming, making a few positive changes on a consistent basis over a few weeks can yield tremendous dividends in the long run. As one begins to experience the benefits of small changes, they become motivated to more aggressively embrace The Hallelujah Diet in order to experience the full benefit!
  1. Begin adding more whole plant foods to your diet and replacing animal source foods for one meal each day. Over the weeks, continue adding more whole plant foods and reducing animal source foods.
  2. If a juicer is available, add an 8-ounce glass of vegetable juice (2/3 carrot and 1/3 greens – celery, cucumber, spinach, etc) daily between meals. Over the next few weeks increase to two or more servings.
  3. If a juicer is not an option, use a blender to make a simple green smoothie.
  4. Incorporate at least one serving daily of BarleyMax and gradually work up to two to three servings daily.
  5. As you begin to enjoy the taste of whole plant foods, increase the percentage of both raw and cooked plant foods in the diet while continuing to reduce meat and dairy source foods, refined sugars, and refined white flour products.
  6. Work toward a diet that consists of 75 to 85 percent raw foods and 15 to 25 percent cooked whole plant foods.
  7. Be sure the omega-3 needs of the body are met. Most Americans consume about 20 to 30 times more omega-6 fats than omega-3s. Excess omega-6’s increase inflammation and free radical damage (underlying factors in chronic diseases). Omega-3’s are anti-inflammatory and protective from chronic diseases! Good sources of omega-3’s are flax seed, walnuts, flax seed oil, and Pharmax fish oil (for the DHA)
  8. Use a sublingual B12 (methylcobalamin form rather than cyanocobalamin) daily to avoid a B12 deficiency. As we age, we utilize B12 less efficiently. Hallelujah Acres offers an excellent B12-B6-Folic Acid sublingual supplement.
  9. At some point it is wise to have blood levels of vitamin D tested. Most Americans are deficient. Optimal blood levels are 50 to 80 ng/ml. Low vitamin D levels are associated with most chronic diseases. If deficient consider supplementing with vitamin D3.
  10. Incorporate some exercise such as walking, with a goal of walking a mile in 15 minutes working up to walking 4 miles in an hour three to four days a week. Get the body to moving at some level. For those with limited ability to walk, try some stretching or resistance exercise while seated.
