The Hallelujah Diet can result in a surprisingly new enjoyment of foods you might not have tried before, along with providing you the well-balanced nutrition and living foods to eat as God intended. Starting your diet can nourish your body with all the essentials it may have been lacking while rewarding your taste buds with an entirely new world of flavors.
If you have been looking for reasons to start the Hallelujah Diet, we have five great reasons to take charge of your health and start your diet now!
Know Exactly What You're Eating
Eating out, ordering food, misleading grocery store labels—not all food is created equal or, unfortunately, honestly. Many unknown factors exist, from pesticides to GMOs to false organic labeling. How do you know the food you are eating is healthy?
When following the Hallelujah Diet, you know exactly what you put into your body to fuel it and your health. Additionally, preparing your meals can be incredibly rewarding and easy. You don't need to spend hours cooking in the kitchen if you don't want to, and you can get as creative as you wish with many recipes. Many recipes incorporate pure, healthful fruits and vegetables surprisingly deliciously to ensure you're always discovering new and exciting dishes.
Many foods can be in easy-to-make forms like smoothies, juices, soups, salads, and even transformed into decadent desserts. Can't get enough of ice cream? Grab a couple of bananas, cut them into chunks, and place them in the freezer. Once frozen, you can blend them until smooth for a rich, soft-serve, flavorful treat.
Dates and nuts can create the base for any moist, delicious cake, and top it with delicious almond cream frosting and so much more!
Reduce Risk of or Symptoms of Chronic Conditions
Consuming processed foods to fuel our bodies and minds tends to become counterintuitive. Most processed foods have little to no nutritional value or benefit and can often cause low energy and brain fog. In addition to that, eating over-processed foods can contribute to weight gain, risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, risk of heart disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 6 out of 10 American adults have at least one chronic disease, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. 4 out of 10 American adults have at least two concurrent chronic conditions. Chronic illness is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. (1)
In a study published in Frontiers in Nutrition on April 13, 2022, scientists studied the relationship between dietary patterns and chronic disease in the rural population of Huairou region of Beijing. (2) The study found that a diet with appropriate energy intake, high-quality macronutrients, and moderate medical follow-up was associated with a decreased risk of chronic metabolic diseases. And while science is still studying the relationship between healthier diets and chronic disease, more and more evidence suggests healthier eating lowers the risk for many health issues.
While changing your eating habits should never be just about losing weight, but providing the much-needed nutrients for better health—it is a great reason to start the Hallelujah Diet. Obesity has been linked to a high risk of a wealth of conditions, such as:
- Cardiovascular disease (3)
- Cancer (4)
- Depression (5)
- Lower quality of life
- Lowered reproduction (6)
- Lowered lung function and respiratory diseases (7)
- Higher risk of memory and cognitive function during aging (8)
- Musculoskeletal disorders (9)
Increased Energy and Mood Improvement
When you feed your body with nutrient-packed, pure foods chock full of vitamins and minerals, you may notice a boost in your energy levels and mood. Low glycemic foods, like green peas, can help regulate blood sugar levels. High blood sugar levels can cause fatigue, and those who have diabetes might encounter diabetic fatigue due to blood glucose dysregulation. Eating low glycemic foods can help reduce fatigue.
Frontiers in Nutrition published a study on May 2, 2022, featuring men and women from the Australian Diabetes, Obesity, and Lifestyle study, focusing on the amount of fruit and vegetables consumed. The results noted that those with higher fruit and vegetable intake significantly decreased anxiety, stress, tension, and feelings of depression.
Eating healthier is excellent for both body and mind!
Longer, Happier Life
Considering all the heavy risk factors, unhealthy eating and living can significantly shorten your overall lifespan and wellness; changing your diet could improve your entire life. We live longer, more fulfilling lives when we're healthier and happier. A more nutritious diet lowers the risk of diseases, increases your energy, lowers inflammation, can aid digestion, and so much more.
You deserve to live life to the fullest, so whatever your reasons may be, we hope you are ready to start your Hallelujah Diet journey with us today!
