Community Description The 40-day health experience is a program based on biblical and scientific principles
Your body, mind, and spirit are inexorably linked and heavily interdependent in the pursuit of total health. The body serves as the "house" for both mind and spirit; therefore, properly maintaining the body is essential to overall health.
Unlike the endless fad diets and health programs littering the American landscape, The Maker's Diet is designed to produce noticeable results --- through balanced, whole-food nutrition, not dangerous, quick-weight-loss gimmicks.
The Maker's Diet is anything but a fad. It is ancient yet revolutionary, timeless yet timely. The 40-day program is divided into three two-week phases. These three phases are easy to follow, and each features foods that are healthy and delicious. When you've finished the 40-day program, you'll enter into the Wellness for Life program, the maintenance phase of the diet.
The Maker's Diet is based on the following tenets:
Obeying the Father
Just as God handed down His moral law in the Ten Commandments, the dietary guidelines he set down were designed to preserve our health. God's dietary guidelines are not some narrow-minded religious exercise meant to set apart certain people from their neighbors. They were given by a loving God to save His people.
Always observe God's dietary laws. Eat any fish with fins and scales but avoid fish or water creatures without them (Lev. 11:9-10). Those to avoid include smooth-skinned species such as catfish or eel and hard-shelled crustaceans such as crab, lobster, or clams. The meat of animals with a cloven or split hoof that also chew the cud (Lev. 11:3) can be eaten. This includes cows, goats, sheep, oxen, deer, buffalo, and so forth. Do not eat swine (pigs). They have divided hooves, but they do not chew the cud. These are unclean animals (Lev. 11:7-8). To learn more about the kinds of foods you'll eat on The Maker's Diet, see Food and Recipes.
The Three I's
The Maker's Diet is designed to attack the three I' s --- insulin, infection, and inflammation. By balancing insulin, you can improve physical, mental, and emotional health; also, balancing your blood sugar will result in sharpening your concentration and enhancing your mood. By reducing infection, you can lessen the toxic burden placed on your body by your daily contact with germs. By lessening inflammation, you can reduce aches and pains and decrease risk factors for such diseases as heart disease and cancer. By attacking these three I' s, you can improve your appearance and increase your energy and begin to reverse the process of accelerated aging --- living life the way you were meant to live it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Makers Diet?
Need to be serious Mar 11, 2007
This is the first of Rubin's books I read and it changed my life. I have similar health problems [as he did,] and reading his personal history and suggested ( and successful!) dietary approach really has helped-- not only physically but in my attitude about my personal treatment without prescription medication. The practics ARE hard to implement, however. The recommended food is an effort above and beyond "normal," not to mention noticably more expensive; but I think it's a small price to pay to look out for yourself and your long-term well-being. Besides, I'd be spending the difference on questionable drugs (from the doctor) anyway. I would much rather try the all natural approach first, no matter how difficult.
A Great Intro to Healthy Eating Feb 15, 2007
I love Jordan Rubin's Garden Products and his integrity to help those heal themselves. Diet is vital and if you're an atheist and/or not a Christian, don't be offended by the biblical references - just take them and verified them from a scientific standpoint. If this is your first time venturing into the world of whole healthy food eating, start with this book.

A copy was given to me. I liked it so much I gave a copy as a gift.
Linda's Likings Jan 10, 2007
This book is great. It reiterates a lot of the "offbeat" newsletters out there that tell us that whole foods are the way to go.
Fantastic Jan 9, 2007
I learned a lot from this book I am starting to apply it to my life, it is much more than a diet
