The Jesus Diet

Being in a creative industry allows me to stop working every now and then and look through the window for a few minutes letting my mind wander a bit. I was thinking whether Jesus (Christ) could have been fat, as it is always portrayed as having a rather slender figure. Then I thought that a good way to make enthusiastic Christians lose weight would be to create a "Jesus Diet". What a great idea for a new product!

Of course, two seconds later I realize that such an obvious idea must have been done. A quick search reveals plenty of Jesus diet pages and sites. Read the story from the BBC from two years ago. The first hit is here. Go here is if you want to know whether Jesus was a "married vegetarian monk" (I like the tiny decorative halved avocados).
