Hello there friends! Just dropping an eye opening exerpt/information below. I am trained by Hallelujah Acres, years ago, and still follow their science based look at the truth of our diet and nutrition issues - today. Take a look!
Almost every weight loss diet being promoted today either allows or promotes animal source foods, yet the Hallelujah Diet excludes all animal source foods. Why? Let’s look at some of the reasons the Hallelujah Acres Diet excludes all animal source foods:
- Our physical body was designed by God to move food through a very lengthy (approximately 30 feet in length) digestive tract, comprised of many pockets, loops, and bends, by means of fiber. All plant source foods are not only LIVING foods, but are also loaded with fiber. In fact, plant foods are the only source of fiber available in anything humans eat. When a person eats plant source foods, because they are loaded with fiber, they move quickly through that 30-feet of digest tract, digesting in 30-60 minutes, and have passed on out of the body in just 16 to 20 hours.
- Animal source foods on the other hand are totally devoid of fiber. Because they contain no fiber to propel them, they move very sluggishly through those 30-feet of tubing taking 72 to 96 hours to exit. Now comes even worse news – the temperature inside our body is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s almost 100 degrees, and what do you think that animal flesh does in that nearly 100 degree temperature during the 3-4 day journey? It rots! And that horrible body odor people try so hard to cover up with soap and water and under arm deodorants is simply the stink coming from those rotting animal flesh foods.
- This rotting flesh is not only the cause of body odor, but also the cause of most all of the colon problems people experience – IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), colitis, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, diverticulosis, colon cancer, and more. In addition, animal source foods are acidic, and the cause of heartburn and acid stomach problems for which people take antacids and other drugs. Yet by simply eliminating animal source foods, most people will cease to have need of an antacid in as little as 3-5 days, and most colon problems will simply disappear over time.
- Animal source foods are either the cause or a contributing cause of up to 90% of all physical problems being experienced today. Just a few of the many physical problems created by animal source foods include: heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, asthma, osteoporosis, colon problems, weight gain, and more. Dr. Campbell in his booklet “The China Project,” writes: “Only small intakes of animal products were associated with significant increases in chronic degenerative diseases.”
- All animals in the wild, whether carnivorous or vegetarian, consume a 100% LIVING (raw) flesh food diet, and have ever since creation until this very day. Animals in the wild are never overweight and rarely ever get sick.
- According to the bible, man lived the first 1,700 years after creation on a LIVING (raw, enzymatic ally active) 100% plant based diet (See Genesis 1:29), to an average age of 912, without a single recorded instance of sickness or overweightness. However, following the flood, after God had allowed man to consume animal flesh in Genesis 9:3 (I believe because all plant source foods had been destroyed by the flood), man started to consume cooked animal flesh and an ever increasing percentage of refined, dead (cooked) food, and physical problems began to manifest and then accelerate.
