"Religious Dieting" on National Radio Tonight

National Radio's Touchstone has a feature on the religious dieting movement at 5pm tonight.
From the website:

This spiritual awakening has been promoted by books like What Would Jesus Eat?, and The Makers Diet and by faith-based diet programmes like Weigh Down. The Maker’s Diet was on the New York Times Best Seller list for 16 out of the first 17 weeks following its release last year. Weigh Down offers 30,000 workshops across the USA, and thousands more internationally.

The authors of these contemporary books and programmes say that coupled with the teachings of the Bible, they offer a solution to both the spiritual and health maladies plaguing modern society.


They stress the importance of returning to a diet consisting of natural, unprocessed foods — foods that Jesus Himself could have eaten and foods that the Bible recommends.

Dieting For Him examines the phenomenon of religious dieting from academic, medical and participant points-of-view, and highlights the danger of modern man’s obsession with controlling and manipulating the world’s resources.

Sounds pretty interesting. It never ceases to amaze me how much utter bullshit people will buy into.
