Fit for Life (FFL) is a diet and lifestyle book series stemming from the principles of Natural Hygiene. It is promoted mainly by the American writers Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. The Fit for Life book series recommends dietary principles including eating only fruit in the morning, eating predominantly "live" and "high-water-content" food, and if eating animal protein to avoid combining it with complex carbohydrates.
While the diet has been praised for encouraging the consumption of raw fruits and vegetables, several other aspects of the diet have been disputed by dietitians and nutritionists, and the American Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians list it as a fad diet.
Famous quotes containing the words life and/or fit:
“Whoever takes a view of the life of man ... will find it so beset and hemmd in with obligations of one kind or other, as to leave little room to suspect, that man can live to himself: and so closely has our creator linkd us together ... that we find this bond of mutual dependence ... is too strong to be broke.”
—Laurence Sterne (17131768)
“A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos. A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
