The Jesus Diet

Apparently the newest diet craze is to eat like JC himself: Americans look to Jesus for diet

""Jesus ate primarily natural foods in their natural states - lots of vegetables, especially beans and lentils.

"He would have eaten wheat bread, a lot of fruit, drunk a lot of water and also red wine.

"And he would only eat meat on special occasions, maybe once a month, just like the parable of the prodigal son who ate fatted calf."

Sounds like common sense to me. And:

"He followed the Levitical laws. He would not have eaten pigs and rabbits or fish that did not have scales, such as crabs and shrimps. "

You mean a Jew living in Israel at the start of the Common Era would have kept Kosher? Wow. Now that's a diet.
