Diets tend to have a bad reputation. And while the Hallelujah Diet has the d-word in its title, it's the furthest thing from it. That's one common misconception: The Hallelujah Diet isn't actually a diet, it's a lifestyle! With our nutritional guidance, you can fuel your body to perform optimally, promoting longevity and overall wellness.
If you're interested in learning more about the Hallelujah Diet, you should first eliminate these erroneous beliefs from your mind. Here are a few common misconceptions about our primarily-raw, plant-based way of life:
1. It has magical healing powers
Our plant-based regimen does not have the power to heal anyone. However, by fueling your body with the proper nutrients, it'll gain the strength to heal itself. This is what God's intentions were from the beginning: To eat only raw foods from the ground to fuel a healthful, thriving body.
With the Hallelujah Diet, you're giving your body the assistance it needs to rebuild the immune system and ward away illness, disease and chronic conditions.
2. Preparing meals is too difficult and costly
Many people believe that preparing meals on the Hallelujah Diet is too expensive and difficult, but we completely disagree with this assumption. For starters, think about how much money you spend on a single meal when you sit down at a restaurant - for an unhealthy, greasy hamburger and French fries, nonetheless. Now, consider how many fresh vegetables you could buy with that same amount of money, and how many healthful, wholesome meals you could make of them.
"Think about how many meals you can make out of inexpensive fresh produce."
Preparing these meals isn't difficult either. Simply cutting up an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables is easier than preheating the oven, cooking the foods and then washing the the dishes, pots and pans.
3. Exercise isn't important
Eating an abundance of raw fruits and vegetables and eliminating processed, unhealthy foods from your diet is certainly the most important component of our healthy regimen. But as we said before, The Hallelujah Diet is actually a lifestyle, and exercise is another important piece of the puzzle. By staying physically active, you're giving your body the strength it needs to thrive. Exercise builds up muscle mass, boosts metabolism, influences weight loss and can even reduce your risk of developing major chronic conditions. Beyond consuming a plant-based diet, you should be exercising for 150 minutes every week.
Once you've eliminated these common misconceptions from your mind, you'll be ready to take on the lifestyle that God intended you to have from the get-go.
