A question about Noah's diet

Discussion in 'Recipes and Cooking' started by Ian MacGregor, Dec 8, 2014.

  1. Twenty years ago I weighed 275 pounds at 66 inches tall, needless to say I was obese. My doctor had told me that I would likely never see retirement age if I didn't do something about my weight, so I began looking for a way to lose weight. I remembered the dietary restrictions in the story of Noah and decided to try that. After a few weeks of following that diet as closely as possible, I noticed my weight begin to diminish. I recently had a physical examination and found the following:

    Weight: 140 pounds
    Blood pressure: 110 over 78
    Medical problems: None
    Medications: None
    Age: 50

    These days my diet consists of fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and water. I occasionally eat meat but I still follow the dietary restrictions as given to Noah and his family.

    Now, I have a question: Are there any consequences (other than needing a new wardrobe) to limiting myself to such a diet even though my circumstances are different than those of Noah's family?
