Fit for Life

by Harvey Diamond (Author), Marilyn Diamond (Author), Kay S. Lawerence

(Introduction)


Editorial Reviews

"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."

The Diamonds explain that body functions have a daily cycle: noon to 8 p.m.--
appropriation (eating and digestion); 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.--assimilation (absorption
and use); 4 a.m. to noon--elimination (of body wastes and food debris). Fit for
Life aims to return you to a lifestyle based on your natural body cycles. That
means 70 percent of your diet should be "high-water-content foods"--fruits and
vegetables--which facilitate all body functions. Consume nothing but fruit or
fruit juice until noon, then eat salad and vegetables with every meal for the
rest of the day.

Two-thirds of the book is explanation and discussion; one-third is menu plans
and recipes. You won't be hungry, your food choices will be healthy, and you'll
lose weight without dieting.
