I first began the Fit For Life program (using the first Fit For Life book) 13 years ago and have continued using the dietary principles ever since. My problems with weight, acne, body odor, fatigue and mental sluggishness were all eliminated within several weeks of implementing the dietary recommendations alone.
In addition to the dietary suggestions presented in Fit For Life II, there are sections on menu planning (including a large section of recipes), aerobic exercise, yoga (for back health and overall flexibility), breathing exercises (for stamina and mental clarity), colon health, resources and much, much more.
Some Christians may find the inclusion of yoga off-putting...if you cannot bring yourself to buy a book with this type of thing in it, I highly recommend God's Way To Ultimate Health by Rev. Malkmus (The Hallelujah Diet), which is both free of new ageisms and scripturally based.
The only other weakness in this book, as I see it (and the reason I give it four stars instead of five), is that the authors have sacrificed presenting clear scientific evidence for the sake of making this book accessible--but it is because of this that the book has sold so well, I suspect. The bottom line, however, is that this program is not only effective, but life changing. If you are interested only in losing weight, you will find many many other benefits along the way.
For those who are facing cancer, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, severe allergies or other immune diseases, the Fit For Life program is a jumping off point to juicing, sprouting, raw foods, etc...Please investigate the work of Dr. Day (who cured herself of invasive breast cancer [...] Rev. Malkmus (The Hallelujah Diet, visit [...] ) and many others who are working in this area with great success, helping thousands of people find healing.
Easy to read, good information and easy to stick with! A worthwhile purchase.
