Fit for Life Program

Fit for Life Program

A lifestyle-altering program developed in the 1980s by H and M Diamond, which is based in part on specific rules for combining foods: in the program, proteins are not combined with starches, as it is believed that the body is not designed to digest more than one concentrated food at one time (any food that is not a fruit or vegetable is regarded as a concentrated food). According to the Diamonds, this diet consumes less energy and the body, having more energy available, automatically sheds excess weight.
