LOL That has to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.

It looks like something a 12 year-old would fabricate. In fact, I'm sure it was.

There's no way this is an official study. It doesn't even say how many people were interviewed/observed. I've also never heard of Gen 1:29 being described as a 'diet'.

This may be a reference to one of the Bible Diet variants - there are several. The idea is (I guess) to determine dietary principles from Biblical text. It's like paleo diets, except based on literal interpretations of Biblical writing rather than on idealized fantasies about 'man the hunter'.

EDIT: It's the 'hallelujah diet'.

EDIT 2: And here's a link: http://www.hacres.com/hallelujah-diet/explanation

EDIT 3: And here's the study the slideshow draws from: http://chetday.com/hallelujah-diet-dangers.htm

We're looking at two fad diet gurus fighting for converts. Probably not anything anybody needs to be concerned with.

Oh I see...it made it sound like a fad, like Atkins or similar. When I read the verse, it just sounded like God gave us fruits to eat. Doesn't sound much like "People who strictly followed the atkins diet found significant weight loss..." etc etc
