Edenic Diet

Unleash your inner Adam or Eve with this biblically-inspired diet.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Some diets do more than just help you lose weight. In fact, some of them, like the Edenic Diet, take food to another level as they start to incorporate religious, spiritual and self-evolving concepts into their nutrition program. The Edenic Diet is a vegan-based eating plan that calls forth the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. As an act of repentance for the first sin, you follow a diet full of vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds in addition to prayer and self-reflection.

PRO
  • A vegan diet can be healthy if done correctly and carefully
  • Spiritual motives may create stronger adherence and fewer feelings of diet deprivation
  • Healthy for the planet
  • May result in weight loss
CON
  • Hard to follow
  • Religious overtones may not suit some
DIET and NUTRITION

The Edenic Diet is an eating plan centered around eating the foods available during the time of Adam and Eve. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes make up the bulk of this diet, and since cooking preparations were also very limited during this time, most of the food on the Edenic Diet is eaten raw.

For breakfast you might have a bowl of fruit topped with raw almonds and walnuts. Lunch might be a large salad made with tons of vegetables and topped with olive oil and lemon juice. Dinner might be tahini on raw sprouted crackers, more vegetables and fruit for dessert.

Sugar, excess salt, meat, dairy and processed foods are prohibited.

EXERCISE

There are no exercise guidelines given.

CONCLUSION

The Edenic Diet is a healthy but stringent eating plan that encourages you to delve deeper into your Christian religious faith by choosing foods according to those that were available during the time of Adam and Eve. While having a spiritual motive for eating or not eating certain foods may be a powerful motivator, the Edenic Diet's strict standards of eating vegan and mostly raw foods make for a very difficult eating plan to adhere to for any prolonged period of time.

Although I agree with your some of your interpretations of Vegan diet, I don't agree with the Tahini and olive oil. Nor do I agree with the Christian lifestyle suggestions. I was raised catholic and ate sea food, red meat, lamb, pork and the like most of my life. Not once in all my years in catholic school was I introduced to the notion of being Vegan to further my Christianity.
Blessings,
Ron
