Makers Diet

Get Jordan Rubin's divinely-inspired diet plan and start losing weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

In following Jordan Rubin's The Maker's Diet, you'll use this spiritually-guided plan to accomplish your weight loss goal. Rubin suggests that this diet plan would be approved by God and help you dine the way our maker would.

During the 40-day journey of the Maker's Diet, you'll improve your overall health, weight and spirituality. Rubin interprets eating habits from the Bible and uses these teachings to help you lead a more healthy lifestyle.

PRO
  • The online program has all the great amenities that most of the other successful online plans have.
CON
  • The website doesn't address exercise.
  • Not inclusive, if you don't happen to share Biblical beliefs.
DIET and NUTRITION

You'll incorporate more organic vegetables, fruits and meat and remove unclean and unacceptable foods from your diet. This natural, organic approach to eating suggests that you should only eat things created by God in the way it was intended. That means no processed foods or those produced with contact to hormones, pesticides or fertilizers.

The maker of the Maker's Diet was terribly sick with Crohn's disease and other health problems including bladder infection, arthritis, chronic fatigue, diarrhea and chronic depression when he says following his Maker's Diet helped cure him. Seven years later he says he is still here, thanks to the recognizable benefits of the organic-focused Maker's Diet.

EXERCISE

There's not an organized exercise component to the online program.

CONCLUSION

The Maker's Diet's all-natural approach to eating, combined with exercise, better breathing and good hygiene can help individuals live a healthier life, while helping them sleep well, reduce stress, improve digestion and decrease colds, among other benefits. While there may be some stretches health-wise by excluding certain foods per the Old Testament teachings (no shell fish or pork), it’s not unhealthy.

First this is not a diet its a lifestyle! It teaches you to eat a better diet! More organic fruits and veggies, less meat, and NO processed foods. Its a back to the basics life style! I modified the diet to fit me. (I couldn't eat the dirt!) It still worked I lost 50lbs!

No need to contact a local Seventh Day Adventist church for this diet, unless you want to be fed a lot of manufactured soy products with additives that are as harmful to you. Stay away from the canned and frozen, et all soy products they promote. Stick with the book.

Of course, the "Maker's Diet" is based on what G-d told the Jewish people to do. It is wonderful that Jordan Rubin has helped so many people with his diet. It would behoove him to also check out what else G-d told the Jews to do. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor |, I am puzzled as to why he would want to join the ranksof the people who slaughtered so many of his brethren.
I hope that he will persist in his search for truth: He can contact Jews for Judaism, which is staffed sometimes by former Jews for Jesus.,May G-d reward his efforts to help people and may he be successful in his search .

The Maker's Diet does really work. I would suggesst though that you find your local Seventh Day Adventist Church. They will be happy to teach you the Maker's Diet for free as they have been doing for over 100 years.

My husband and I have not tried this diet, but now that he was diagnosed with Parkinson's and having some extremely painful digestive problems with gas that cannot be relieved we need some alternatives besides antibiotics. Where do we start since anything he eats turns to gas that cannot be relieved because of sluggish bowels brought on by the Parkinson's? I heard raw food was the easiest to digest. Is this true and is that the place to start? This has been going on for over 5 weeks after having a colonoscopy and blood test to test for Celiac Disease. Could Crohn's be an issue? Thanks for any feedback I can get for my husband, age 74.

I felt amazing when I was on this diet.
I had so much energy and I could think clearly.
the only slightly negitive thing i would say is, like any diet, it is super hard. Its definitely a life style change.

I am 65 years old and had problems all my life with my bowel movements. I started taking Dr. Ruben's oxi Flush Deep Cleansing With Oxygen and after I started taking it, I have no problems having a bowel movement. This was truly a blessing for me and now I want to get started on Dr. Ruben's diet for my health. I fell 8 years ago and I cracked a dic and rippped a disc. I have live with cronic pain since my accident and I feel that I have finally something that will help me in more ways than one. I am very excited to start on the diet!

I think this book is excellent. If you really think about it, most of the best diets go back to basics. Eat what our ancestors ate, etc. As for the comment on what is in the Bible. Jordan Ruben is a Messianic Jew. He believes Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, but most likely his spiritual education on Biblical law come from a different source (Torah) than the modern day Christian. Also, I don't think he is wrong to sell a book or program. He is an educated man with a family. I am sure there are many jobs he could get that would be easier and less time consuming. Instead he chose to spread "the word" and God had blessed him and gave him the means to continue and grow. Perhaps someone who is not a Christian will read his book and be curious about the law. From there they may read the Bible for the first time. From there they may visit a church and become a Christian. God is always involved and I am sure Jordan Ruben knows that with his wealth comes great responsibility.

I agree with T.Lennox, his gramma may not be perfect, but his reference to the Bible is correct! I'd like to know what Bible does teach that Christ or His disciples received financial gain from healings, teachings etc. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but is the desire to help or to line his pockets? That's between him & God.

T. Lennox: This isn't some ploy for "big sales". This is a man who was extremely ill and almost died, tried everything to get well, and from the Maker's Diet was able to. God bless him for having the courage to write a book about his findings and for the desire to save thousands of people from the same fate.

I am a Christian and tried the Maker's diet. I started with Phase 1 and now do a mixture of Phase 1 and 2 to keep losing weight. I have lost 80 pounds in the last 6 months. I feel great and very healthy. This is a great diet and way of life. I highly recommend it!


Anonymous

for T.Lennox: what bible do you read? your words are very poor


Alicia

I have completed the entire 40 days of the makers diet and have not been sick ever since I started it. That was over two years ago. The first two weeks are the hardest, but after that it's pretty much smooth sailing.


T. Lennox

As a strong Christian also I am offended by a salesman with one more diet spiritualizing his for big sales. This is not the worse diet but some of thethings he recommends are questionable at best. This is not in the bible.


R.L. Davis

I don't think this would qualify as a fad diet- but it seems like right now organic and natural foods are really popular. So at least it's not one of those diets that leaves you searching for hard to find foods. My grocery store has a really nice organic section so now i have an excuse to check it out.


Heather

As a strong Christian, I can understand where this diet is coming from. When we live our lives according to His plan, we are happier and healthier. If we're feeding our soul with His word, it fits that we would want to feed our bodies with His food. I feel like this "makers diet" is just what I need to live healthier.
