Daniel's Diet Dilema and the Daniel Diet
By Jordan Rubin
He was offered a meal fit for a king—literally—but he refused it and, instead, went with the basics, the food and drink he knew would be best for him.
I’m talking about Daniel, of course. Yes. . . Daniel of the Bible—the same one who was thrown into the lion’s den and came out untouched and without incident. There’s more to the story of Daniel, however, and his “diet dilemma” is part of it. Here’s what happened. Daniel and others were taken into captivity, but Daniel didn't want to partake of the king’s “delicacies”—the rich and unhealthy foods they were expected to eat. In short, Daniel didn't want to defile himself with what was unclean in the sight of God. In fact, Daniel’s confidence in his own dietary selections—namely to be fed pulse and water—was nothing short of impressive. He was so sure of his food preferences that he welcomed being put to the test to prove his point.
Daniel said, “Test your servants for ten days; and give us only pulse to eat, and water to drink. Then let our countenances be looked upon, and the countenance of those that eat of the portion of the king's delicacies: and as you see fit, deal with your servants.”
After ten days of only pulse—which consists of foods made of fruits, vegetables, seeds and grains in their most nutrient-dense form—and water, Daniel and his comrades were brought before the King.
The results? Their health and appearance “appeared better than all the young men who consumed the ‘best’ food of the land from the very table of the king.”
Fast forward three years and beyond—while still eating what was on their Maker’s menu, including the pulse and water diet—and Daniel still outperformed those who ate the king’s delicacies. In fact, the king found Daniel and his buddies were “ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.”
Ten times better!
What’s more is that Daniel outlived the king and was alert and coherent enough to advise the king's grandson, Belshazzar, roughly 70 years after the reign of Nebuchadnezzar began.
That tells me that our health and intellectual abilities are contingent on our diet choices throughout our entire lives.
I don’t know about you, but I certainly want to go through life with excellence in health, intellect, knowledge, faith and in fulfilling my purpose—and dietary selections have much to do with determining those outcomes, just like they did for Daniel. So, when it comes to making your daily choices concerning diet, choose wisely.
You might be thinking to yourself that the story of Daniel and his diet selections are great and all, but that was so long ago that there’s nothing available today that remotely resembles pulse.
What about you? Do you want to be found better in health and appearance over the long haul?
That’s why I’m siding with Daniel on the “diet dilemma” and choosing foods from our Maker rather than unhealthy foods that dominate our culture.
Please note: The Daniel Diet Option Number 2 is not currently available. Below are two good alternatives for you:
In the book, The Makers Diet Revolution, on Page 40, Jordan gives you a schedule for your day if you want to buy your own foods. My customers have told me that they don't have the time and/or inclination to prepare their own foods. I spoke to Jordan about this.
When he was at Garden of Life, Jordan developed 2 food bars that contain most of the same ingredients as the pulse. These were the Living Food Bars in the Fruits of Life and the Perfect Food (not the chocolate covered) flavors. Jordan is not comfortable with you eating just 3 food bars a day, but you could use the food bars for the 12:30 meal and the 6:30 meal, and eat the salad that he lays out for you for the 3:30 meal. You would do this for 9 days, and then follow his instructions for the 10th day.
So, to do this plan, you would need 9 Fruits of Life Bars and 9 Perfect Food Bars. See the products below the schedule to get these products
The schedule on page 40 (for the first 9 days) would look like this:
8 oz plain Amasai, or goat or sheep yogurt or kefir
Here is a link to a pack with 9 Fruits of Life bars and 9 Perfect Food bars, a link for the Raw Organics Seeds, and then a link to buy Amasai (The Amasai comes to you directly from Jordan's ranch and HE DOES Charge Shipping.):

Many Customers want to replicate the Terrain 10 Tonic. This was purified water with Jordan's herbal vinegar, Terrain, in it. If you want to do this part of the fast, you would buy the product below, and then add 1 tablespoon in your morning water, and 1 tablespoon in your evening water:
Transform your Terrain with Sacred Herbs for balanced pH levels in the body, proper digestive function, and a healthy metabolism. Sacred Herbs is a combination of Holy Basil and Turmeric flavors and supports a healthy inflammatory response and immune system plus, supports healthy blood sugar levels and the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.
The next thing that Jordan was working gone was the Jump Start Diet. It is not the same as the Daniel Diet, and you still have to make much of your foods. However, if you want to read about the Jump Start Diet, click on the product below:
