There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I am half way through this book.

By applying some of the principles of healthy eating as proposed by Harvey Diamond in this book, I have already seen dramatic results in just under two week. I am losing weight, I have more energy, I am more focused, my digestive system feels great and, on top of it all, I have an enhanced sense of well being.

I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially those who have struggled with weight gain, deteriorating health with age or lack of energy.

I have struggled with these factors for a number of years. One day, I just decided to do something about it and handle the situation for good. I started looking around and then remembered Fit for Life, the original book, which I had read back in I was struggling then with low energy and recurring illness.

I read that book and applied it. Within months I was at my ideal weight with abundant energy and good health. As time went on, I strayed. This is an updated book to the original. I saw some of the negative reviews, and I admit that Harvey does a lot of talking and preaching before getting to the point. But I actually appreciate that, because I think it is important to get a full understanding of why this method works, and to know about all the misguidedness and misconceptions that are out there.

I am really enjoying this book, and I intend to recommend it to my friends and anyone interested in advice. I am a former long distance runner who stopped running 8 years ago, put on 60 pounds of weight and gradually resigned myself to the fate of a middle-age man living on the Standard American Diet SAD and sedentary lifestyle.

Five weeks ago I started running again. I was getting along fine and losing about 1 pound each week. But I wanted more. So, 2 weeks ago, I started eating only fruits in the morning until noon. I lost 2 pounds that week. This week I added proper food combining, and dropped another 4 pounds.

I know it's not fit-for-life alone, but for sure the combination of eating more living food in a proper way and regular exercise is resulting in maximum benefit.

I honestly feel better every day. Before, my body was feeling slow, heavy and lethargic. Now, every day I feel a little better, a little more nimble, a little more energetic, a little lighter, a little stronger, a little more positive, calmer, happier and eager for what the next day or week will bring.

I have been following this plan for a few months and I have noticed an increase in my energy during the mornings. I did give up after the first week, I wanted my pancakes with fruit on top, and regretted it within an hour, I felt very lethargic and ended up sleeping for over 12 hours. I thought it might be a fluke and had my pancakes with fruit the next day again and had the same results. I went back to the plan and I feel wonderful.

I do believe that it took about a month for my body to get use to the changes. I will revisit this review after a few months. This has been the best Diet I have ever been on and believe me, I have tried practically every diet out there.

Been on weight watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, nutrisystem, etc. This is really a healthy way of eating. This is one of food combining and every time I did this diet, I lost a pound a day and never felt hungry.

My problem is my husband doesn't eat this healthy way and after a while, I get tired of cooking two different meals for us so I just make what he wants and eat like him which makes me pack on the weight.

One person found this helpful. I followed Harvey Diamonds combination diet back in the early nineties, and was very happy with the results. I not only lost weight, but my energy levels were very high Well, I'm twenty years older, and I'm determined to feel as good now as I did then.

It's not really that hard and well worth the results,,,,better health! Regardless of calorie count, a well-rounded diet includes fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Being healthy is about a lot more than just a number. The greatest dangers associated with a calorie diet relate to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to many health problems. In fact, most people cannot meet their vitamin and mineral requirements if they eat less than calories per day.

For example, according to the Mayo Clinic , if your diet lacks the mineral zinc , which is in pumpkin seeds and beef, you can suffer hair loss. Low iron intake can lead to anemia , while chronic low intake of calcium and vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis later in life.

Always consider the full nutritional makeup of the foods you eat, not just their calories. A calorie diet can also put you at danger for muscle loss. At first, muscle loss may seem like you are losing more weight, but keep in mind that not all weight is bad. To keep your body healthy, you need to be able to build muscles.

A healthy diet burns fat, not muscle. Another health risk to keep in mind when considering a calorie diet is that your metabolism will change when you reduce the amount of calories you eat for a long enough period of time.

Severe calorie restriction for prolonged periods of time will lead to a slower metabolism. This can lead you to burn fewer calories. Also, when you lose weight, you then need fewer calories to maintain your new weight than you needed for your original weight. But if they do so, they will regain weight until they reach their original weight. Though you may lose weight, you are at risk of malnutrition , which can cause many health problems. Healthy weight loss includes getting a variety of nutrients from varied food sources, limiting food portions, and burning more calories than you eat.

Stick to that approach to get the pounds off and keep them off. For optimal health, it is a good idea to choose the foods that contain the most nutrients.
