Item description for Fit for Life: Not Fat for Life by Harvey Diamond...
Overview The author of Fit for Life offers a lifelong way of eating that allows the eating experience to remain a joyous one--rather than a clinical endeavor of measuring portions, counting calories, calculating grams of fat, carbohydrates, and protein, or ingesting meal replacements--teaching readers to eat any food in the most healthful way so there is no feeling of deprivation. Original. 75,000 first printing.
There is only one concept to grasp and only one action to take: Eat more living food than dead food. The simplicity of this message has eluded people up to now. In fact, it may seem oversimplified. Because of past frustrations and disappointments, people have come to believe that losing weight is complicated, difficult and expensive. Truth be told, all that is required to reap the myriad benefits of Harvey Diamond's program is to return to the fundamentals of life.
The human body is intelligent and capable beyond anyone's comprehension, but in order to unleash this extraordinary intelligence-including that which normalizes body weight-the proper fuel is required. That fuel is living food. But for some inexplicable reason, people have allowed themselves to believe that they can give their bodies the wrong fuel and then have it operate at optimum efficiency. And that is why most people become overweight.
This book offers not a diet, but a lifelong way of eating that allows the eating experience to remain a joyous one, rather than a clinical endeavor of measuring portions, counting calories, calculating grams of fat, carbohydrates and protein, or ingesting meal replacements. It teaches readers how to eat any food in the most healthful way so there is no feeling of deprivation. As readers embark on this life-changing journey, they will experience the surge of energy and well-being that only comes as the automatic result of properly fueling their bodies. Providing deliberate, gentle and forgiving guidance every step of the way, this book will become readers' trusted source and companion as they create a new way of eating and living, which will lead to both overweight and poor health becoming conditions of the past.

I Challenge You Aug 27, 2006
In 1996 (at the age of 48), I learned of Living Health and Natural Hygiene from Anthony Robbins and Harvey Diamond. I accepted a 10-day challenge to try it and observe how I felt. I felt absolutely the best I ever had. I immediately took up long distance running while employed as a computer geek. As a result I have successfully run and finished eighteen 26-mile marathons. I am now 58 and had an excellent ten-mile run this morning. If you want your Ferrari to run its best you do not put cheap gas in it nor treat it badly. My only negative comment is that Harvey does his best to NOT get sued by by calling the medical and Pharm industry for what they are: charlatans and frauds, though highly educated and highly paid. They are not in healthcare; they are in body repair. They fix broken parts. They cure nothing. They only eradicate the symptoms. Harvey is innocent for he never says this, but having read his books and integrated his opinions into my lfe, I consider Harvey a very experienced expert on a healthy diet. I challenge you to read his book, take charge and responsibility for your own healthcare for it is the cheapest and the best you will find anywhere. MH-Houston, TX
Eye Opening and Impactful... Jul 27, 2006
Nowadays, there is no shortage of nutrition and weight loss books out there. Believe me, I've read quite a few. Yet every now and then, you come across a book that opens your eyes and changes your life in ways unlike any other. Harvey Diamond's "Fit for Life: Not Fat for Life" is one of those books.
His advice is simple: eat more live food (natural, raw) than dead food (cooked, processed) and limit animal-based products (dairy, most meat). Harvey brings this advice to life not only with science, but with personal accounts and witty story telling that leaves no doubt in your mind what is the best way to eat.
Sure, the results are astounding. You will lose weight, increase energy, and regain vibrant health. But the truly good nutritional philosphies are those that stand the test of time...and Harvey's advice is as "right on" today as it was 20 years ago. After reading the book, there is no doubt you'll feel the same.
not as good as the earlier fit for life books Feb 24, 2006
To be honest, I couldn't even get through the first chapter. I haven't even read the whole book. I kept thinking, Harvey, get on with it! I guess It's because I have read his previous books and know the way of food combining, but he sure takes his sweet time getting to the point with this one. Save your money and buy the original Fit for Life. There is more information in that, recipes, etc. This book just repeats what has already been published previously. I give it 3 starts though, because it is good information in general.
Even Good For Teenagers Jan 16, 2006
For teenagers now, and I am sure this applies to all generations, the way you look is vitually important. Now I am not going to go off on some crazed recap of how this changed my life over night and that I some how managed to lose over a hundred pounds, becuase truethfully I wasnt mojarly over weight and didnt lose that kind of poundage (Though I am not trying to say it cant happen). The trueth is that I am a seventeen year old male who just wanted a better appearance as well as a healthy life. I have researched a few other "programs" and see most of them as actually being harmfull, in particular to teenagers. Now with this book, and I am sure with the others written by this author, what you are reading and the knowledge you gain is so simple and of such commonsense (as he points out in the book) that, as I believe, it is really the way our lives should be lived. But PLEASE... please do not think that by reading this book all you will have to do is go to the frozen food isle in your grocery store and stock up and those supposedly "healthy" frozen dinners, becuase thats just not how it works. Actually in this book the authors Number ONE thing he says you should do is eat more living (non-cooked) foods then dead (cooked foods). So what that means is spending most of your time and money on buying produce and less (if any) on those frozen dinners, and other such foods. So yes, I do recomend this book - actually its the only health book I have or will ever recomend - but please note that if you hate vegetables and Fruit (fruit is a big part of this book) then this will not work for you. Also if you or a son(s) or daughter(s) in having trouble with wheight and health issues, then this is the safest and most benefitial thing you could probably do for yourself/them - I mean this is the way we are supposed to eat!
P.s. I weighed in at 195lb Dec. 25 2005 and now weigh 175lb (Jan. 16 2006) - I also have a lot more energy and have better focus on the tasks at hand.
Good book Dec 14, 2005
The information here is not extremist which is good, however, there is some spiritual language that will certainly turn some away, as well as unnecessary repetition. I found it a good primer for the living food approach to eating, and it was argued with good logic and adequate examples. This book could benefit people greatly if they have common sense and apply the basic principle: eat more living food than dead food.
