Fit for Life – Harvey and Marilyn Diamond

“Fit for Life” is a bestselling self-help book written by husband-and-wife team Harvey Diamond and Marilyn Diamond. The book was first published in 1985 and became a popular and influential work in the field of health and nutrition.

The central premise of “Fit for Life” is based on the idea of combining specific food combining principles with natural, whole foods to promote better health and weight loss. The Diamonds argue that the order in which you eat certain foods and how you combine them can affect your digestion and overall well-being. They propose that consuming primarily raw fruits and vegetables, along with some cooked foods, can lead to improved health, increased energy, and weight loss.

Some key principles advocated in the book include:

  1. Separating foods into categories based on their digestion times and chemical compositions.
  2. Eating mostly fruits in the morning and afternoon, along with raw vegetables.
  3. Consuming proteins and starches at separate meals.
  4. Avoiding processed and refined foods.

“Fit for Life” gained popularity in the 1980s and had a significant impact on popular dietary trends and the health food industry. The book’s recommendations have both supporters and critics, and the science behind the food combining principles is a topic of debate. It’s important to note that the field of nutrition has evolved since the book was first published, and there may be more updated and evidence-based dietary guidelines available today. As with any diet or nutrition plan, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before making significant changes to your eating habits.
