The Jesus Diet

You’ll forgive me for laughing at these people.

PLANT CITY – Roger Swanson wants to walk again. Daina Roughgarden hopes to rid her body of nodules that could prove cancerous. Rocio Mazzetti desires to keep symptoms of multiple sclerosis at bay.

They each sought help this month inside a rust-colored house on Thonotosassa Road, home to the Central Florida outpost of the Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Center. For about $1,200 a week, leaders at the center teach would-be adherents the basics of the Hallelujah Diet, a vegan eating plan that centers on the consumption of raw foods and Christianity.”

    Uh-huh. So my love of Pork Chops makes me what? A Pagan?


    Never ceases to amaze me what some folks will swallow.

    Orieyenta: Most of ’em migrate here from the chillier north. It must do something to their minds!

    Good question.


    Why no, I did not.

    Birthday Girl,

    I know people whose cooking is so bad you’d rather eat dust.


    It is a bring your own hammer and nails diet.

    Are wine and cigarettes part of the Jesus diet? If so, I am in. I don’t have to get like crucified or anything, do I? Or carpentry for exercise? I am anti-fitness.

    And I thought the Kasamba diet was strict!
    It advocates only eating dust.
