When you choose to eliminate refined sugars, saturated fats and processed foods from your diet, you're taking a step in the right direction to improve your overall well-being. Once you've made that proactive move, it's important to stay on track and nourish your body with whole foods bursting with beneficial vitamins and nutrients. Many people rely on certain regimens for guidance, but not all are created equal.
For instance, there are some diet plans that focus solely on protein consumption. Others restrict carbohydrates and some even suggest you stop eating fruits. Unfortunately, most people only follow these diets to lose weight. But isn't overall nutrition important to them? Where will they receive all of the key nutrients their bodies need to thrive?
The Hallelujah Diet is the best choice
That's why we recommend the Hallelujah Diet, our primarily-raw, plant-based plan that derives from God's Original Diet – a nutritious, fruitful way to receive all of the necessary nutrients you'll ever need. It promotes a healthy lifestyle in more ways than one: It can help you lose and maintain your weight, boost your immune system and even provide support in reducing your risk for chronic disease and illness. God always wanted humans to follow a diet like this - one that can fuel the body to heal itself.
Genesis 1:29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
What makes the Hallelujah Diet different from other regimens?
The Hallelujah Diet is a regimen with roots from the beginning of time. Some plans are based on evolution, others on modern science. But the Hallelujah Diet looks back on what God named our original, nourishing foods. It's a plan that focuses on getting back to the basics and eating only what He said we should live on: fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
"The Hallelujah Diet roots from the beginning of time."
There are a few key differences in our diet in comparison to God's due to the changes in the human body and environment over time, according to Michael Donaldson, Ph.D:
"Produce quality has changed in the last 50-80 years, so it is likely that it is way inferior to what used to be around ... But we always keep God's Original Diet in mind when thinking about changing what we should eat."
That's why vegetable juice is a key element in our diet. Our produce isn't as nutrient dense as it was in the beginning, so we need to extract the juice from the pulp to make it as nutritiously-dense as possible. By keeping that in mind, our regimen is essential to the restoration of God's Original Diet.
Investing in the Hallelujah Diet versus doctor visits
Unfortunately, doctors are not experts in nutrition, so they're unaware of the body's innate healing ability. In medical school, they are trained to diagnose illnesses and run expensive diagnostic tests based on certain signs of discomfort. They focus on eliminating viruses, bacteria, tumors and symptoms. In most cases, results come back and they're simply depressing and discouraging - and rather costly, to say the least. Furthermore, to control these symptoms, doctors put patients on medications for life – ones that don't cure the cause of the disease, rather curb the pain and discomfort.
Fortunately, the Hallelujah Diet is the more positive approach to healing the body, according to our health expert Olin Idol.
"If a person will simply follow the principles of the Hallelujah Diet, it really doesn't matter what the underlying cause of the symptoms is," he said. "The body, with the innate healing wisdom God has programmed within will, in most situations, carry out self-healing."
Following the Hallelujah Diet is different in the sense that you're not just treating the symptoms, but rather providing the body with the nutrients it needs to heal itself entirely. Instead of focusing on the bacteria, virus, and disease, we focus on building a body in which disease cannot thrive. When the immune system takes care of the recovery, there's no need to rely on medications to control the symptoms. Overall, this natural approach is the better investment for both your wallet and your overall health.
