Tampa's FitLife Foods offers healthy "fast food" for the sane

The history of diet fads is a rich one here in America and judging from crazes popular today, we seem to be living in a golden era of nutty nutrition ideas.

Most are silly, such as aping the eating habits of early man (so-called Paleo diet); some are stupid, my favorite example being injecting yourself with pregnant women's pee (I am not making this up).

Which is why I’m surprised at the success of South Tampa’s FitLife Foods, the flagship shop of what founder David Osterweil hopes will become a statewide, even national, chain.
