How the Hallelujah Diet Can Help Restore Your Body


The body’s health relies on the quality of food that goes into it. Today’s fast-paced lifestyles have made it way too easy to settle for diets that not only lack nourishment but actually weaken the body’s systems and overall health. For these reasons, a poor diet has become a top risk factor for developing chronic diseases. The Hallelujah Diet is designed to supply the nourishment the body needs to maintain good health on a long-term basis. Read on to see how our plant-based eating lifestyle can help restore your body to good health.

The Deadly Effects of the Standard American Diet

Unhealthy foods, including saturated fats, salt, refined sugars, and refined grains, have become staples within the Standard American Diet or SAD. As tasty and filling as this menu may be, these foods cause widespread damage to the body on both a cellular and system level. As of 2015, an estimated 35 percent of American adults were obese.

At this rate, obesity rates are expected to increase to 50 percent of the adult population within 15 years. Obesity, and even being overweight, sets the stage for other chronic diseases to take hold of the body. In effect, the increasing rates of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer we’re seeing today develop out of years of eating foods that weaken and sicken the body.

Ways the Hallelujah Diet Helps Restore the Body

The Hallelujah Diet menu plan consists of whole, unprocessed, plant-based foods. Scientific evidence shows these to be the exact foods capable of controlling, reducing, and even reversing the effects of chronic disease. Unlike the foods that make up SAD, plant-based foods contain the high levels of nutrients needed to meet the body’s nutritional needs on a cellular and system level. Here are just a few of the ways the Hallelujah Diet can help restore your body:

Weight Loss & Weight Management

If you’re carrying any extra weight, the first step to restore your health entails dropping excess pounds. Diets low in fiber, high in saturated fats, and processed sugars account for the increasing rates of obesity we see today. The Hallelujah Diet is made up of high-fiber foods, such as vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and legumes, which keep the digestive tract working as it should.

Strengthens the Body at the Cellular Level

This means the foods we eat from meal to meal go directly into the rebuilding and repair of the body’s cells. The foods that make up the Hallelujah Diet contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals, proteins, essential fats, enzymes, antioxidants, and phytochemicals, all of which supply the range of nutritional materials the body needs. Eating these types of foods on an ongoing basis means quality materials will be used to replace the old cells with new ones. This is one of the many ways the Hallelujah Diet restores your body to a healthy state.

Supports the Body’s Natural Self-Healing Mechanisms

Every minute of the day, the cells in your body work to maintain a state of natural balance. This entails repairing damaged tissues, eliminating toxic, free radical materials, and manufacturing new cell structures. Not surprisingly, these processes work best when the body’s nutritional needs are being met. The nutrient-packed foods that make up the Hallelujah Diet naturally support the body’s self-healing mechanisms.

Impacts Gene Expression

This information is used to manufacture the protein molecules that build and form the cell. Particular genes can be turned on or turned off by foods and nutrients. When men with prostate cancer adopted a plant-based diet, researchers found that gene expression had been altered in prostate tissue. 48 genes were up-regulated and 453 genes were down-regulated during this 3-month study. Gene changes in pathways of tumorigenesis, protein metabolism and modification and others were found. The food we eat can have a direct effect on the genes that are expressed in our cells, for good or bad. Food is information for the cells of the body. When the body’s cells are healthy, the body’s systems are healthy too.

With all the convenient food choices we have today, it can be easy to overlook the vital role food plays in maintaining our day-to-day health. The Hallelujah Diet is not a trend or fad diet but rather a scientifically proven path to optimal health, vitality, and long life. Sometimes the biggest problems we face have simple solutions that were right in front of us all along. While poor health is indeed a big problem, eating healthily offers the simplest solution of all.

    I eat mostly raw fruits and veggies with free range chicken and fish and no red meat and no sugar. I recently had a full hysterectomy and after 6 months I have had ringing in my ears and vasoconstriction of my veins. I weigh 140 pounds and am 5’ 7”. I have no heart issues. What is going on with me?

      So sorry to hear about your issues. It can sure be frustrating when we feel we are doing all we can and our body is just getting one thing after the next. I am dealing with a couple things myself right now…and I am sick of it!
      I feel there must be more things I can do to support my body. For starters, I have made juicing a BIG priority in my life. When I read the astounding stories of health IMPROVEMENTS from folks who juice consistently, I know that fresh juice is very impactful. Carrots must be remarkable. That being said, I still only drink 4 oz. of carrot juice at a time, along with some fat, to make sure I am not dumping in too much natural sugar into my body at once. Among other things, I am also committing to take BarleyMax consistently. I still believe what I have learned from Hallelujah Diet, that deficiency and toxicity are the root causes of disease.

    This is our God, the god of Creation’s, divine design for mankind, a miracle beyond human comprehension.

    I truly believe we can heal our bodies from the inside out with proper eating. The Hallelujah Diet is God’s way of eating to give our bodies what it was designed to consume.

  4. I’m glad we can play a part in supporting good health in the body and it is not completely determined by our genes. It is good news that certain genes can be turned on and turned off by food and nutrients.

    I an currently on your cancer rescue plan. Do you have a plan that starts at 10:00 am rather than 7:00 am?
    I don’t usually get up till about 9 am because I don’t sleep too well.

    • Melody Hord February 8, 2021

      Hi Jay!
      The schedule in the Cancer Rescue Plan is merely a guide. You are encouraged to make your schedule fit your lifestyle.
      It can be difficult to get all the juices, BarleyMax and supplements in each day. I knew a man one time that had his watch alarm sound every hour, on the hour, so he could get his 6 juices and 6 BarleyMax servings in each day.
      One thing a person can do is to take 2 servings of BarleyMax at a time. In other words, take roughly 2 teaspoons at once instead of just 1 teaspoon. This way, you are taking the BarleyMax 3 times a day instead of 6 times a day. Also, BarleyMax can be taken with a meal instead of in between meals if you are finding you do not have time to drink it in between meals.

      The most important thing is to get major nutrition in the body and to keep out toxins.
      How is the juicing coming along? It can be quite time consuming. However, it can also be very tasty and invigorating.

    I’m on Dialysis and I have reversed my diabetes. Our Dietitian showed me how to eat. I was on 2 shots a day, now I’m just on a pill. My A1C for the last 3 months is 5.2. I’m down to 120 lbs from 302lbs. All my blood work was excellent. The Dietitian said whatever I was doing, keep doing it. This diet is doing it. I have got so used to it, i never get hungry. I have kept my weight the same.

    • Melody Hord February 9, 2021

      Catherine, Way to go! How long did it take you to lose 180 pounds? That took a lot of dedication.

  7. Annette Whitworth February 9, 2021

    Wow…I enjoyed reading this…I did not know that particular genes can be turned on or turned off by foods and nutrients. That is great to know. I often wonder when people is dealing with cancer how they eat more raw foods and drink more juices from the fresh veggies. Again this was great to learn about how to restore through eating the right foods.
