SHELBY, N.C. -- The Rev. George Malkmus often preaches about how he
believes the world of proper eating began - or, in his opinion, vegan.
"The Lord gave us everything we need in the Garden of Eden: fruits,
vegetables, nuts and seeds," the preacher-turned-diet adviser said as he
sat in a conference room at Hallelujah Acres, his North Carolina
headquarters. "That's why we call the way we eat 'The Hallelujah Diet.'
We celebrate its true creator."
Malkmus's diet is one of a bevy of Bible-based eating plans flooding
bookstores and health food stores. Last summer's "What Would Jesus Eat?"
by Dr. Don Colbert, encourages consuming an abundance of
non-animal-derived "living foods" and eschewing most "dead" or processed
"The Weigh Down Diet," by Gwen Shamblin, offers few restrictions on the
types of foods consumed but encourages practitioners to follow "God's
perfect boundaries of hunger and fullness."
Malkmus' diet - which draws, he says, from Genesis 1:29 - bans all animal
products except for honey and promotes an 80 percent raw diet.
