I first read Fit for Life in after putting on 80 lbs with my pregnancy and breast feeding.

I started having extreme heart burn no matter what I ate. My chiropractor boyfriend gave me this book to read.

I started immediately and lost about 70 lbs over 6 months. I immediately had more energy and needed less sleep.

My mood improved and I was always happy and energetic. I even started running. Over, the years, I did not follow the diet so well but when things got out of control I started back on it. It always immediately works and I feel great.

I am 46 and very healthy. No medications or concerns. I do mostly eat organic and not a lot of meat. Medical evidence or not, this has worked for me for 18 years. Can you drink water during the morning hours when you are eating only fruit?

Not sure if this working — sorry for multiple questions that are the same. I love the way I feel and I sleep so much better too. The Dr.

The Fit For Life Cookbook

And you really felt like you were eating a cookie. And they worked just as stated. On the other hand, the Fit for Life cookies were pretty bad.

I felt like I was eating flavored mud. I guess if you took really small bites and just swallowed instead of chewing, it might be okay.

It is funny to read, good and healthy to follow, and is true. I not only lost weight, but I got healthy. My mother followed it and her acid reflux went away. Both of us has energy and felt great. I am going to get back to the basics once again. I have to find my book.

Eating more fresh fruits and veg, that's sound advice. My problem is that a majority of the "evidence" he puts forth is either 1 scientifically unsound or disproved; 2 anecdotal; and 3 sounds way too much like intelligent design. To be fair, Diamond puts in a disclaimer about his profuse reference to "God"—but it has no place in a book where I'm trying learn more about eating healthy. It's one thing to tell me fruits are naturally full of all the vital nutrients needed by the human body.

It's another to tell me that since fruit is so chock full of nutrients, it's evident that God intended humans to eat them. At one point he also says that since carnivorous animals only eat plant-eaters, it's obvious plants are the superior source of nutrition. This is spurious logic. Maybe carnivores target herbivores because they're easier to kill.

Broad generalizations are not scientific fact. Diamond is also extremely dodgy about the studies he presents. For one, he references Pottenger's cats—an experiment in which scientists studied two groups of cats that subsisted on diets of only raw or cooked meat guess which group contracted more illnesses —as proof that cooked food is bad for you. Last I checked, humans are not cats. As proven by animal testing, what works for animals does not always work for humans.

Broad generalizations do not scientific facts make. I call bullshit. All in all, I appreciate the wisdom behind eating more fresh fruit and veg.

But the majority of this book is fluffed up rhetoric. View 1 comment. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I was happy to read the book because I'm somewhat obsessed with healthy eating and fitness.

This was a 3. What I liked about the concept of the book is that it's not a straight-up diet book. You follow guidelines for healthy eating but you're not required to eat specific foods.

Some of their theories, such as food combining,the timing of eating certain foods, and detoxification I'm not so sure about. I'm kind of old-fashioned in my thinking about dieting. I still believe that a calorie is a calorie and the more you eat the more weight you're going to gain. One theory the authors coninually stress throughout the book is that only fruit and fruit juice should be consumed until 12 noon because fruit digests quickly and since up until noon your body is busy in "elimination" mode, more of your body's energy can be devoted to the work of elimination if it doen't have to work so hard on the digestion of food.

In my mind, you're going to lose weight if you only eat fruit for several hours of the day because fruit contains fewer calories than other "tradional" breakfast foods. I personally don't eat heavy breakfasts but I see nothing wrong with having a piece of whole wheat toast with a couple of teaspoons of peanut butter for breakfast.

I really like the recipes at the back of the book and there are several I'd like to try. I think if you follow the guidlines in this book you will ultimately lose weight simply because you'll end up eating fewer calories by consuming more fruit and vegetables. Also, the authors do stress the importance of doing at least 30 minutes of cardiac exercise daily, which naturally will contribute to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

In short, the book wasn't bad it's just that the theories and reasonings were kind of strange and I'm not fully convinced of their validity.

To me, eating healthily is mostly just common sense. I was kind of disapponited to see that there wasn't more information on specific exercises in the short chapter on exercise but the one thing I have to say I really like about the book is the recipes. Aug 08, Denise Lopez rated it liked it Recommends it for: Not realistic Jun 04, Karli rated it liked it.

Glad I read it - reads like a lot of the other health books I have read lately so it is nice that even in the 80s there was someone saying, "Eat Mostly Plants" just like Micheal Pollan today.

The writing was pretty terrible actually, not that I would expect a lot of a health book but I felt as if I was listening to a used car salesman with all his "funny " one-liners.

Furthermore I didn't feel like the book was very scientific as it didn't state a lot of research to back of the theories. That is Glad I read it - reads like a lot of the other health books I have read lately so it is nice that even in the 80s there was someone saying, "Eat Mostly Plants" just like Micheal Pollan today.

That is one thing that I prefer about Pollan, he is very scientific and is able to back up his arguments with data from around the world. Anyway here are the cliffnotes for the book.

I just don't know if I can follow this way of eating. I like pizza! I like coffee! I like pasta with cheese.

But I am partially there on the path so hopefully I can add it some more of his tips. It would be very hard not to combine carbs and protein ever again though. View 2 comments. Feb 19, hissi rated it it was amazing Shelves: I bought this book because I heard about it through other books I had read about colon health and lifestyle changes.

It sat on my shelf for over 5 years. I finally decided to read it based on the reviews I read here on goodreads after I re-found the book a few weeks ago. Boy am I glad I read this.

Having had a number of digestive issues over the years and unsightly weight gain I knew I had to make some drastic changes. I had made many over the years but many, I found after reading this book, whe I bought this book because I heard about it through other books I had read about colon health and lifestyle changes. I had made many over the years but many, I found after reading this book, where just improperly combined good ideas.

As I read the book I implemented the program and noticed a marked difference in energy in just a day. Some of the other reviews complain about the amount of time to prepare the food in the menus. I have not used any of the menus and only the simple principals which takes far less time than most recipes I've followed in the past.

Jun 08, Joan Dash rated it it was amazing. I read this around 20 years ago. It was the first book I ever picked up to read on health and nutrition. I found it absolutely facinating, and I still remember the principles outlined in this book, because it had made such a strong impact on me.

I recommend this book for anyone who is open minded and can think out of the food pyramid box. Jan 19, di rated it it was ok Shelves: Great weight loss method but very hard to do and the theories have been disproved scientifically. Actually got anemic while doing this, so although I lost a lot of weight it was not that healthy. Sep 08, Camille Michiko Gica rated it it was amazing.

I have high praises for this book. Had I read it a year or more before now , I would not have appreciated it as much as I appreciate it now. This has been marketed ALSO as a diet book and I understand that because it is an extremely popular niche. I like it because it doesn't emphasize so much on healthy lifestyle and food. Everything has been explained well and in a way that is very easy to understand. I also really adore this book mainly because it offers a new mindset on eating.

That is how this book tries to work with its readers. It inspires, rather than condemns. It doesn't set limits on you and doesn't even impose on you. I know they don't impose Hah! Maybe because of the emphasis on unaltered food food in its most natural state to be the easiest food for the stomach. But to my surprise, Part 2 with Marilyn showed me the many options I didn't know I had! There are chowders and soups that sound delicious, sandwiches goodness, my mind never came up with that , cooked vegetables, pasta, tortillas, and more!

Options are always good and welcome. There is also a 4-week sample meal plan in Part 2 with variety and they all come with recipes meal plans daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! But of course you have to read the book to understand them. You can even do JUST 1 for a start. I only did the first one breakfast and so far, I like it. Breakfasts are easy and quick to prepare like literally in "no time" and I don't even have to "think" about it. That's my favorite part and this is also the easiest.

I'm still transitioning with the others but I take my time because that feels best for me and the book says it too.

There's no pressure here and I'm working on it, little by little. It's been 2 weeks now and so far so good. I don't think I'll be going back to the old diet I used to have. I don't know why, but somehow, I've found myself a new world in the food category and I actually have been in search for this for a while. This book sealed the deal for me so there's no going back. Thank you, Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, for writing this book.

Fit for Life Diet Plans

Written in the 's but just as true and even more beneficial in our world today. Every human being who eats should read this book and give it a try. May 18, Carolyn Donoghue rated it it was amazing. I can't believe I had not heard about this book until now. I was able to hear Harvey speak about this topic in a private fb group I was in recently. I was so intrigued by what he was saying, I bought the book. Loved it!

He explains, in very simple terms, that it's not just important what you eat, but it's also when and in what combination with other types of foods. I've already incorporated his only fruit til noon program as well as the no eating after 8pm. I've already seen a marked difference I can't believe I had not heard about this book until now. I've already seen a marked difference in my energy levels, which I thought were fine to begin with. I learned much about digestion and the energy the body expends to do so.

The one part that I plan to try, but it will be more of a challenge will be the food combining. That's going to be a major switch in behavior. They also began to sell nutritional supplements , advertised as enzyme supplements, many of which are strongly recommended in the newest version of FFL.

The diet came to public attention in the mids with the publication of Fit for Life , a New York Times best seller [3] [4] which sold millions of copies, [1] [5] over 12 million according to Harvey Diamond. Tony Robbins promoted the Fit for Life principles and veganism to increase energy levels in his book Unlimited Power. Health experts and science writers have dismissed the book as quackery.

The rigor of study underlying Harvey Diamond's credentials have been disputed, which has drawn questions about his competence to write about nutrition, because his doctoral degree came from the American College of Life Science , a non-accredited correspondence school founded in by T.

Fry, who did not graduate high school or undergo a formal accreditation process himself. FFL's personalized diet program has been criticized for providing a "Clinical Manual" that is heavily infused with alternative medicine claims about how the body works, some of which may be scientifically inaccurate or not accepted by conventional medicine.

Despite the fact that FFL web site mentioned "clinical trials", many of the proposed principles and benefits of FFL diet are not supported by citations to any scholarly research, and some of the claims have actually been directly refuted by scientific research. For example, a dissociated diet as that advertised by FFL is no more effective for weight loss than a calorie-restricted diet.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In Jacqueline L. Longe eds. The Gale Encyclopedia of Diets: A Guide to Health and Nutrition. Thomson Gale. CS1 maint: Retrieved 11 April New York Times.Do Not Send Email Notifications. Here are the main points of the diet plan.

The idea behind combining varieties of food is to complement nutritive values. He always answers any questions. I even started running. Fit for Life 's central premise is that nutrition depends more on when and how you eat rather than what or how much you eat.

This review is what happened after I obsessed for weeks over Fit for Life. FFL Food List. Yes, preparing the menus mentioned is a tedious task, but I never prepared the menu, just followed the simple things mentioned in the book which took less time.

According to the Life Science catalog a booklet called Careers in Health : Whereas medical practitioners look to drugs.
