This book came into my life via a dear friend more than a decade ago, and it is by far the book that has impacted my life the most.
I have, am, and will continue to recommend it to anyone who approaches me complaining of any eating issues, or disorders.
Those who have read and tried the suggested eating patterns in this book, have been grateful to have come across it.
If I could give it 100 stars, I would; but alas, five is the most I can give, and so I have.

Read the original Fit For Life back in the 80's. Couldn't find my copy so when looking the book up, saw this updated version and decided to purchase. Was disappointed and have gone ahead and ordered the original. Alot of fluff and no recipes. Wasn't as impactful as the original book.

Many years ago I followed this eating plan and was very successful with losing weight. I purchased the newer edition because it had additional information that my older one did not and I am using it this time around for health reasons. In the month I have used the eating plan I have lost weight, feel more clear headed and energetic. Also, I just got my labs back and for the first time since last using this plan(15 yrs ago) my cholesterol panel is all normal! This can be a tough plan to follow in the beginning, so as the book says take it a step at a time and don't try to do everything it states on day one. Pick the things in the plan you can do and continue adding more as you are comfortable. The more you do, the more results you will have. I know I have had great results by following as much as I could and each day finding I could do a little more. I found it was best to completely read the book through before starting the plan, this way you will have understanding of why you need to eat the way they state.

This is the only book that I have ever bought that I can follow and actually lose weight on. The principles in this book are simple to follow. I brought this book when I was out of college (many moons ago) and lost weight. I was actually losing so much weight (plus running about 4 x's a week). You can have whatever you feel like eating, there are no restrictions - AT ALL. I stayed at a size 8 for years. Now almost 30 years later I'm at a size 12 and retired. I am now ready again to be FIT FOR LIFE! IT WORKS!

Principles herein can't be more contrary to today's conventional meal but which, if adhered to, brings great rewards for those who suffer frequent indigestion.

Spoken from personal experience as well as hvg witnessed a business associate get healthy over an 18mth project.

The book theorises that the body undergoes 3 major phases of food processing through a 24hour day. Phase 1 - Eating & Digestion (12noon-8pm); Phase 2 - Absorption (8pm-4am); and Phase 3 - Excretion (4am-12noon).

The author categorizes food into 3 categories: 1) carbohydate, 2) protein and 3) vegetables and advocates that food be consumed in compatible category combinations that would result in optimal digestion. For example, it maintains that proteins and carbohydrates should never be consumed together as the enzymes secreted to digest the respective classes tended to cancel out each other's digestive powers, neutralising the acidity/ alkalinity of the enzymes. As a result of which slows digestion, lengthening the time poorly digested food spends in the stomach. Nutrient absorption is impaired, and food would end up sitting in the digestive tract longer than it should, exposing it to a higher incidence of putrefication whenever it encounters sugary substances (desserts after a meal is a bad idea). This contributes to rapid putrefication - imagine foul odious sludge & gas sitting in one's intestines, going no where and the resulting emissions!. Rather - the aim is to maximise digestion and absorption and waste material expelled in the shortest possible time.

RATHER than carbs as the common food staple, theory advocates treating vegetables as the staple (common food) to be taken together with proteins and then separately in a different meal with carbs. Importantly, Diamond advocates that fruits be consumed on an empty stomach, best for breakfast in any amount till satisfied up till noon. The rationale here is to avoid diverting fresh energy from the previous night's good sleep to digesting a heavy meal, preferring rather to channel the available energy to the day's morning pursuits. Simple carbs from fruits are in absorbable form and provides the required energy for the cleansing (waste mgmt) cycle in the morning - when excretion best take place. A logical deduction from here then is for carbs & vegetables to be eaten at lunch - hence allowing the energy it generates to be used through the afternoon (rather than stored overnight). Proteins & vegetables otoh, is best consumed at night to resource muscle repair & recovery after the day's pursuits.

This overall eating formula aims to promote digestive health as well as aid effective weight loss - and it works! Caution though that what works for one may not work or be redundant for another. Hence listen to your own body. It's a gem for me.

I gave away my original book over a decade ago, and wanting to rekindle the great health and energy I had back then, I bought this more recent printing.
Some of the information and opinions are extreme and should be taken with a grain of salt, but when I followed the diet strictly, I lost 3 lbs a week without any effort (other than eating tons of fruit and farm fresh veggies). This time I'm looking forward to trying more of the recipes and am psyched to revisit this great book.
