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. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Great information and is a very easy read.
I don't remember how I got the book the first time I read it, loaned to me or checked it out from the library but after reading it I wanted a copy to keep for myself.
Fit for life is a great system and plan to change the way you eat and live, to maintain a VERY healthy lifestyle without sacrafice of the food you like.
Best information that is out there. If you want to be healthy and remain healthy! I have been preaching the Fit for Life concept to all of my friend! What an awesome book!Published 13 days ago by Kimberly Williams
It is very easy to read and I like the subject matter and the way that he worded it. I haven't tried the diet yet.Published 1 month ago by miz plum
