The Maker's diet is based upon a 40-day diet which involves healthy eating, combined with an ancient religious view point of the Jewish religion. The Maker's diet is meant to affect not only the body, but the mind and inner spirit as well.

Not Only Food

The Maker's diet does not just focus on eating healthily, but also focuses on exercise and prayer on a regular daily basis for the entire 40 days, as well as a regular supplement intake giving your body the vital nutrients and vitamins that it requires to maintain good health.
