Fit for Life
Author: Harvey Diamond, Marilyn Diamond
"It is not only what you eat that makes the difference, but also of extreme importance is when you eat it and in what combinations," say Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, authors of this classic bestseller. Their program results in eating balanced, nutritious, high-fiber foods, making dieting "unnecessary and as obsolete as sealing wax."

It's a good, nutritional reference book. I agree with some of the ideas, but not all of them. There was some good info though.

Written in 1985, some of the info seems a little outdated, but the recipes in the back are good.

Great book! Made me better understand how our body digest & uses foods. The only reason it didnt get a 5 start is I didnt like that he really tried to push being a vegetarian, & didnt promote pasture & organic foods, but it is an older book, so I am wondering if it has been updated? A great read on understanding our body. I lost 5lbs the first week I started it with ease.

They are not fans of meat and dairy products. Buzz-ideas include not combining certain foods (starches and proteins, for example) and eating foods that will hydrate you. The authors have divorced, so based on my criteria, their diet is unsuccessful.

At one time I followed this particular plan in an effort to lose weight. It worked. This is book is deeply informative with a great deal of explanatory information intended to validate the eating plan. It was a bit ponderous to me yet I understood the concept and when I tried it I had success. It is not the book's fault that I did not stick with the program.
