Paul witnessed the birth of the Hallelujah Diet when, as a teenager, his father, Rev. George Malkmus, developed the diet within his own family. So he knows better than anyone how it can transform lives by improving health. But The Hallelujah Diet was not always his primary interest and passion. Paul graduated from the University of Maryland, with a communications degree and entered the armed forces.
