George, Your ministry is a testimony in my life. Last Thanksgiving (2004), I made the decision to change my diet and lifestyle for good. I had known about The Hallelujah Diet for over 7-years at this point, as I had read your books, even attended one of your seminars, and believed everything you taught for over 7-years. But I hadn't totally changed my diet! Oh, I had tried to 'dabble' a little with the diet for 7-years, but hadn't gone all the way. And trying to 'dabble' with the diet hadn't worked!
It was time to be all on the diet or all off the diet.
Following are a few of the ailments I suffered with prior to making the decision to totally change what I ate, and adopt The Hallelujah Diet 100%: severe sleep apnea. I was sleeping on a CPAP machine and without it I would probably have been dead by now; I was over 100 pounds overweight; I was even considering the lap band surgery. Probably would have done it, but my insurance didn't cover the procedure. Sure glad that procedure wasn't covered by insurance; Acid reflux would wake me up every night with a severe burning in my chest, and I ate acid indigestion medication like candy; bleeding hemorrhoids constantly; severe allergies causing constant sneezing and a runny nose; high blood pressure; cholesterol and triglycerides through the roof; back pain so severe I had to take pain medications almost daily.
Now, here I am a little over 4 months since adopting the Hallelujah Diet. I just had a physical and here are the results. At my last physical in March 2004, my triglycerides were 629 - At my recent physical in March 2005, after just 4-months on The Hallelujah Diet, my triglycerides had dropped from 629 to 57; In March 2004, my blood pressure was 145/95 - In March 2005, after just 4-months on The Hallelujah Diet, my blood pressure had dropped from 145/95 to 110/69; In March 2004, my LDL (bad) cholesterol was 333 - In March 2005, after just 4-months on The Hallelujah Diet, my LDL had dropped from 333 to 113; In March 2004, my resting heart rate was 85 - In March 2005, after just 4-months on The Hallelujah Diet, my resting heart rate had dropped from 85 to 60.
In the 4-months since Thanksgiving 2004, on The Hallelujah Diet 100%, I have also lost 70 pounds! My allergies are all but gone! I have no more hemorrhoids! No more back pain pain! I no longer need the CPAP machine to sleep and I no longer snore! (Before the diet change, I could wake the neighbors with my snoring.) I now rune 4-miles per day and work out with weights 3-days per week. I now have unbelievable energy! And my goal is to run a half marathon in December. I hope my testimony will be an encouragement to all. God bless you and your ministry!
