Dr Oz: The Year of Living Biblically Review

A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, told Dr. Oz he didn’t know what to teach his children about the Bible so he dove right in and started to follow all the rules. He followed all the rules in the Bible, even the rules pertaining to diet and what can and can not be eaten. Jacobs told Dr. Oz for an entire year he did not shave, he lived fruitfully and he even “multiplied,” by having twin sons with his wife. He said his diet consisted of mainly whole foods like lentils and barley and he even took it so far as to eat crickets and locusts.He said his biblical diet gave him more energy and it helped him lose a little weight as well.

Dr. Oz: What Would Jesus Eat Review

Dr Oz: Human Saliva Designed To Break Down Plant-Based Foods

Dr. Oz shared some interesting facts that support why we were created to eat like Jesus. Two-thirds of our teeth are actually made to eat mostly vegetables. Our jaws are made to go from side to side, while meat eaters, like lions and canines, have jaws that move up and down and are really wide, giving them the ability to attack and eat their food.

Another supporting fact is that our saliva is specially designed to break down plants. Dr. Colbert said digestion starts in the mouth by an enzyme called amylase, an enzyme unique to humans with the sole purpose of breaking down plant products.

One final fact that we were created to eat like Jesus is the fact that our intestines are four feet longer than our bodies, a sign that we were built to have a plant-based diet. Dr. Colbert explained our bodies are not meant to handle all the toxins in meat products. Our intestines are designed to spend a long time digesting plant-based foods so we can benefit from the nutrients in the food. For carnivores, their bodies want to eat as quickly as possible and get the food out as quickly as possible.

About the author

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Journalism and Anthropology, I managed a pizza place for a year, while freelancing for various newspapers in the area. Working every weekend in sauna like conditions, never being able to take a day off and being covered in flour is something I will not miss. I hope Recapo has air conditioning.
