Excerpts from Jordan Rubin's
The Maker’s Diet Revolution
Jordan Rubin states “In
The Maker’s Diet
Revolution, I’ll expand on three principles, or pillars, of
biblical health. They are:
- Eat what God created for food.
- Don’t alter God’s design.
- Don’t let any food or drink become your idol.
The truth is that the Bible has a definition of food
and a definition of filth. This is clearly laid out in Leviticus 11 and
Deuteronomy 14 as it pertains to animal foods. In addition, there are many
items in our modern diet that are made exclusively of laboratory-created
chemicals. These are clearly not part of the Creator’s eating plan. God
did, however, create—for us to enjoy—wonderful foods that are teeming with
nutrients, beneficial compounds, and best of all, great taste.
Not altering God’s design has to do with how food is
grown, raised, processed, and prepared. For plant foods, I’m referring to
what we do before seeds are planted in the ground, while the food is
growing, and after the food is harvested.
Let’s talk about how food starts in the fields. The
rise of Big Agriculture in the last century means that fewer and fewer
farmers are growing more and more food on larger and larger plots of land.
To increase crop yields and to get the most of their acreage, large-scale
farming operations plant seeds containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
that are resistant to insect infestation.
If you’ve heard of genetically modified foods but
are not sure what they are, you should know that these crops have been
genetically engineered using the latest molecular biological techniques.
In other words, these seeds were modified in the laboratory by taking
genes from one organism and inserting them into another to make them grow
higher, larger, denser, and more resistant to pests.
The problem is that we’re using molecular
engineering to force genetic information across the protective species
barrier in an unnatural way. While the idea of creating pest-resistant
plant species is laudable, the problem is that scientists have
successfully added genes to foods that weren’t originally part of that
food’s creation, which changes the DNA of the crop.
As of this date, these laboratory-created mutations
have not been subjected to any sort of rigorous testing on humans, but
genetically modified foods have been linked to toxic and allergic
reactions causing sickness and sterility in livestock, which is why they
are banned as food ingredients in Europe and other nations. Even though we
don’t have scientific studies outlining just how detrimental the
short-term or long-term effects will be, we do know that GMO crops demand
higher levels of toxic herbicides and pesticides, which go straight into
the food you eat—and straight into your stomach and ultimately your
Bottom line: GMO foods offer no benefits, only
health risks. But if you’re like most people, you’re probably unknowingly
exposing yourself to these excessive toxins sneaked into your food. Stop
being a victim today.
Another form of altering God’s design is
hybridization, which is taking two species from the same plant family and
grafting them together. In the animal world, we would call this selective
breeding, but in the plant world, you’re basically creating a new species.
A prime example of hybridization would be seedless
watermelons, which were created in the laboratory by a Japanese scientist
who figured out that pollinating plants with a normal complement of
chromosomes with a plant genetically modified with double the number of
chromosomes would produce a fruit that lacked seeds.
What’s more is that watermelon patches and every
other conventional crop are subjected to pesticides and herbicides to
battle insects and pests that damage the crops. Crop-duster planes
routinely douse crops with chemicals that are toxic, resulting in a less
healthy food supply. In addition, synthetic fertilizers used to replenish
soil fertility may stimulate rapid plant growth, but they bring along
unintended consequences. These fertilizers are made up of nitrogen salts,
which return little, if any, vital minerals to the soil and actually cause
micronutrient imbalances. Thus, the nutritive value of foods grown in our
soils has declined significantly in the last hundred years.
The use of pesticides and herbicides extends to the
meat and dairy we eat as well. These days, cattle, chickens, and
“farm-raised” fish are fattened on feed containing unhealthy chemicals as
well as antibiotics that are added to compensate for the unsanitary and
deplorable living conditions on factory farms. To add insult to injury,
the majority of U.S. livestock are loaded with hormones and growth
promotants that contaminate meat and dairy—a practice that can lead to
serious health challenges in humans, especially children and teenagers.
Another example of how we alter God’s design for
food is the way the “genius of man” has figured how to prepare,
manufacture, cook, microwave, and market mass-produced foods in ways that
are terribly unhealthy for us.
Too many of the so-called foods sold in our nation’s
supermarkets are not really food because they are made from synthetic and
processed ingredients to produce a more competitively priced product with
a longer shelf life. These ingredients have been stripped clean of
nutrients and pumped up with additives and preservatives. I’m talking
about vegetable oils, frozen pizza, ice cream, processed cheese, potato
chips, cookie dough, white bread, dinner rolls, snack foods, doughnuts,
candy, salad dressing, margarine, and much more. The list is endless.
The final principle—to not let any food or drink
become your idol—refers to how we are addicted to foods and beverages in
the American culture. It doesn’t matter if you’re a churchgoer or not, but
we’re a people who eat early and eat often. We wake up and march like
zombies, either to the kitchen to make coffee or driving to a local coffee
shop. We sit down to big breakfasts with eggs, pancakes, sausage, and hash
browns; enjoy bacon deluxe burgers and fries at lunch; and dine on
hubcap-sized platters of food in the evening. And then there’s snacking on
chips and cookies before and after meals.
Sugar or salt, we love them both, and caffeine—well,
it can be considered the most widely abused drug in the world. Coffee is
the most popular beverage in the United States—even above bottled water.
On average, Americans drink 400 cups of coffee annually. As overwhelming
as that number is, it’s nothing compared to our need for a salty snack or
a sugar fix.
For many, life is justifying the next ice cream. Got
a promotion? Go get an ice cream to celebrate. Got laid off? Get an ice
cream to make you feel better. Our addiction to food means we are
consuming too many calories and chemicals that our bodies can’t handle.
Something has to give, and, unfortunately, it’s our health.
I believe it’s critical to return to our Maker’s
plan for eating healthy. We are God’s temple, and He cares about us and
what we eat and what we do. He wants us to live long, healthy lives so
that we can be beacons of light to a lost generation for as long as we
can. That can happen if you follow the
Maker’s Diet Revolution eating plan.”
“Pay the Farmer now, or the Doctor later.”
Maker’s Diet Revolution eating plan embraces the body’s natural
cycles by employing the ancient strategy of regular cleansing and
building. When it comes to health, there are only two governing
principles, which are agreed upon by virtually every health expert:
- Get the good in, meaning we must get nutrients
into the appropriate cells of the body’s organs and tissues.
- Get the bad out, meaning we need to stimulate the
excretion of toxins out of the body.
These twin goals can be accomplished by cleansing,
which is the body’s way to rid itself of toxins, and building, which is
the body’s way to create and effectively restore healthy organs, tissues,
bloodstream, lymphatic system, and digestive tract, building strength
within the body and fortifying a defense system against invaders such as
The first part of
The Maker’s Diet Revolution is devoted to
cleansing the body. The cleansing process is the key to a healthy body,
and we were created to undergo a specific cycle of cleansing and building
to break down waste and to build up strength. If you look back into
history at the natural health experts of the past—even to the father of
Western medicine, Hippocrates—they all said that removing waste from the
body is the starting point for good health.
Cleansing is not something you do every once in a
while. Cleansing is something the body does every day, whether you like it
or not or whether you cooperate or not. That said, cleansing comes in many
forms. You may not realize this, but what we call the common
cold—congestion and mucus expulsion—is the body’s proactive reaction,
ridding itself of germs and invaders and a form of cleansing.
The Maker’s Diet Revolution will put you
on the fast track to experiencing the many benefits of cleansing, which
will be accomplished quarterly, monthly, weekly, and even daily following
the ancient traditions of the world’s healthiest people.
Building up the body is the second pillar of
The Maker’s Diet
Revolution as well as the second part of this program. You
build your body by fortifying the body’s “terrain” or transforming the
Toxins can’t live in a healthy body with a healthy
terrain. This explains why five people can go to a restaurant, order a
large fish entrée to be served family style at the table, and three get
sick from ingesting an overabundance of bacteria while two were okay.
Since they ate the same fish, why were some doubling
over in pain two hours later and some were sleeping just fine? The
difference was their terrain.
Raising Your Level of Health
Activating and optimizing the cleansing-and-building
cycle within your body is the reason I’m confident that your journey on
The Maker’s Diet
Revolution will create a transformation in your health and in
the health of your family. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if after
following the Maker’s Diet Revolution nutrition program your body is
flooded with a level of health that is “ten times better” than others your
age—similar to what Daniel experienced over 2,600 years ago.
How would you like to be ten times greater in health
and wisdom than any and all of your contemporaries and to take every area
of your life to the next level? If you carefully follow the instructions
detailed in the pages to come, I believe you can and you will. Best of
all, your journey can begin today. Welcome to the
