I'm not a spambot
I've known a few Orthodox Jews who weren't healthy at all. The Bible may tell people not to eat pork or shellfish or certain insects that go on all fours, but it doesn't stop people from living on cold cuts, chicken wings, Coke, pizza and Big Macs.

Actually yeah they do. A lot of the food the Bible forbids is very hard to prepare safefully.

Years ago someone marketed a "Bible Bar" made from foods mentioned in the bible...

I grew up on an island in the Pacific. A bible-based diet would not have been possible or affordable.

I'm on a bible based diet. I eat nothing but bibles. I started on Genesis and am halfway through the book of Luke. Yummy.

There are also people who utterly reject the bible, and probably some who haven't even heard of it, who have excellent health.
Besides, the bible is a colossal, sprawling mess of tenuously related junk. It is quite likely that there will be bits of it that are actually good advice, purely by chance, but this does nothing to validate the rest of it as long as there is no viable model to support the assertions.

Sure, they're thin to the point of starvation and are considered old by 40.

Worth a try, I guess. Tell me, where does one buy manna thesedays?

Which version should I eat? KJV? NIV gives me gas.

Sure its plenty of fiber, but its not very nutritious, the ink's probably not all that healthy, and we'd rip our teeth out on some of those leather covers...
Bibles are a *sometimes* food.

The bible may provide excellent nutritional advice.
Too bad it fucks up your morals so bad.

...and also misses out on such things as tomatoes, corn, citrus, rye, many kinds of beans, chicken, turkey, many kinds of nuts, and pretty much anything that didn't grow within a hundred-kilometer radius or less of Jerusalem.
But you know what they don't miss out on? Wine and beer, both of which were drunk in great quantity in the ancient Middle East. Yes, alcoholic wine and beer.

I realize the Song of Songs must have been like eating top-grade Belgian chocolate, but how did you manage to get Ezekiel down without throwing up?
Also, Jonah: tartar sauce or malt vinegar?

Brian X: I just washed it down with some Zechariah. The old testament was pretty flaky and light, I'm hoping the new testament will have more bulk to it.
Jonah: Tartar sauce of course. It goes with the big fish.

Here's to eating the flesh and drinking the blood of jesus!

Anyone who stays away from junk food and doesn't gorge themselves at every meal could have excellent health. (Assuming you don't pick up a nasty bug, have a genetic condition, etc.)

The exercise program's not bad, either. If you walk through a desert for 40 years, I guarantee that you will lose weight.

So, I'm guessing you don't eat milk and meat mixed together, pork, shellfish, or anything with blood in it and look for the little kosher symbol on the packaging when you go grocery shopping. No? Then you're not obeying your Bible. And don't drag out the "But...but...Jesus said those laws were valid!" bullshit, because he lived and died an observant Jew.
