The Hallelujah Diet
People often ask me "What do you eat?" Here is my answer:
BREAKFAST: Barleygreen* powder either dry and let it
dissolve in my mouth or in a couple of ounces of distilled water at
room temperature. That is usually all I have until noon! If I do get
hungry, then I may eat a piece of fresh juicy fruit later in the
morning. Cooked food is an absolute no-no as my body is in a cleansing
mode until about noon each day. (It is vitally important to me that
the Barleygreen powder I use comes from American Image Marketing and
that it contains kelp. There are other companies that have tried to
imitate this product, but they are not processed the same way. I have
tried other products, but they do not give the same results.
LUNCH: Barleygreen* powder, as at breakfast.
Sometimes I stir my Barleygreen into 8 to 12 ounces of freshly
extracted carrot juice,** which I find especially delicious and
extremely nutritious. At least a half hour after the Barleygreen, I
prefer an all-raw fruit lunch. A banana, apple, dates, etc. Organic is
always best when available. (Sometimes I have a vegetable salad for
lunch instead of the fruit.) It is important that this be an all raw
SUPPER: Barleygreen* powder either dry or in a couple
ounces of distilled water or in carrot juice. Carrot juice must be
freshly extracted, never canned, bottled or frozen. Then, at least 30
minutes after the Barleygreen, I eat a large green vegetable salad of
leaf lettuce (never head lettuce), broccoli, cauliflower, celery,
carrots, etc. I enjoy adding half an avocado in most of my vegetable
salads. This is usually followed by some cooked food (baked potato,
baked sweet potato, brown rice, steamed vegetables, whole grain pasta,
whole grain bread, and so on). Later in the evening I often have a
glass of organic apple juice or a piece of juicy fruit. (My diet
consists of approximately 85 percent raw food, and 15 percent cooked
To be sure I get the essential fatty acids needed by my body, I also
have one tablespoon of flax see oil, Lemmon's Essential Oil Blend, or Essential Balance from Omega Nutrition. I either have this on my evening salad or straight out of the bottle.
Exercise is also an essential part of my program. I do at least one
hour of vigorous exercise daily. Additionally, I try to get some
sunshine on as much of my body as possible every day.
*The reason I supplement my diet with Barleygreen† is that our food
today is being grown for the most part on very deficient soils that
often lack all the nutrients my body needs for building new, strong,
healthy, vital, vibrant cells. Barleygreen is grown organically (will be certified organic within a couple years) and contains the widest spectrum of nutrients available today from a
single source that I am aware of. It is also loaded with enzymes and antioxidants. I consider it the single, most important food I put into my body each
day and always consume at least 2 tablespoons of it a day. Another AIM product I find very beneficial is Herbal Fiberblend, for added fiber, preventative maintenance of the colon and insurance against parasitic infestations.
**The second-most important thing I put into my body each day is
freshly extracted carrot juice made from large California juicing
carrots in a Champion Juicer. I try to drink at least 16 to 24 ounces
each day. When I had my colon cancer 18 years ago, I consumed 32 to
64 ounces of carrot juice each day. If I had a serious physical
problem today I would consume up to eight 8-ounce glasses of carrot
juice each day in addition to my three to four tablespoons of
Barleygreen. The reason Barleygreen and carrot juice are so important
to me is:
- Cooked food has practically no nutritional value.
- A large percentage of the nutrients in raw food are lost in the
digestion process, with only 1 to 33 % of nutrients reaching cell
level, depending on the health of the digestive system.
- When vegetable juices or Barleygreen is consumed, up to 92% of the
nutrients reach cell level. This is because the pulp has been removed
and thus no digestion is necessary. Raw vegetable juices are the
fastest way to nourish the cells and rebuild the immune system and
essential body organs.
- A Vitamin B-12 supplement is essential for anyone who goes on a strictly vegetarian diet for an extended period of time. This is because of the excessive handling and washing using clorinated water that our produce receives today. Sublingual methylcobalamin is the best method for a person committed to a pure vegetarian diet to obtain their vitamin B12. 1/2 of a "B12 Infusion" tablet twice a week should be sufficient for a healthy adult. Available at most Health Food Stores for around $8.50 for 30 tablets of 1000mcg B12 Infusion is manufactured by Enzymatic Therapy www.enzy.com
- If I had cancer I would not have fruit (Nathan Pritikin, Dr.
Stanley Bass, and the macrobiotics believe that fruit sugar helps
to spread cancer.) If I had candida, I would not have fruit or carrot
juice (because of the high glycemic index). If I had diabetes, I
would monitor my blood sugar very carefully while transitioning to
the Hallelujah Acres program.
- We encourage individuals with chronic health challenges who want
to try the Hallelujah Diet to work with a nutritionally-minded
physician. Most doctors only have 1-2 hours of training in the area of nutrition and simply do not understand how the body responds to high quality raw nutrition.
†AIM Barleygreen was discontinued in 1995 and replaced by AIM (American Image Marketing) BarleyLife. BarleyLife is dramaticly better nutritionally and substantially more affordable. Folks are seeing much better results with it and are able to reduce the amount used to as little as 2 teaspoons per day. While folks may do well with as little as 2 teaspoons per day, experience has taught us that if we are not seeing the desired results to increase the amount used. "I see great results using 2 tablespoons and continue to use that amount. If I were feeding my body with nutrition while dealing with cancer I would use 4 to 8 tablespoons of the BarleyLife per day."
