It is filled with many testimonials and photos of successful people who changed their lives through this regime. I have held on to this book in hopes of We have all read a smattering of self-help books over the years that have briefly inspired moderation of our behavior for hopefully a more positive life style. I have held on to this book in hopes of re-motivating myself with the simple truths found in its pages and testimonials.
As a writer, I have no desire to write this sort of book because it is purely a how to. What I can learn from this book is about writing non-fiction in a believable way from the many testimonials of people overcoming difficult circumstances and achieving long term weight loss. Overall, this is a truly inspirational book that has helped many people, just not me, which may be my own failing. Jan 12, Lisa rated it it was amazing. Great eating and exercise plan. Initially when I started I lost 35 pounds and in the words of a co-worker I looked "svelte" Woot for me!
It takes a bit to get in the groove, but of all the diets and work-outs I have read, none are as well supported medically, nutritionally, or by gyms as this one. Granted it's not wheat, milk, sugar and animal meat free; which I have read books stating why all those things are terrible. So, as f Great eating and exercise plan. So, as far as I am concerned, this is moderation at it's finest.
Well explained, well documented in the book and I'm living proof it works. I lived the diet for 5 years, in periods of my life, along with Eating for Life his cookbook which has some of the best recipes I've ever used.
I am now looking to switch it up. I haven't stayed true to my eating as I should have during and after my pregnancy Jul 08, Bekah rated it really liked it Shelves: Inspirational and thought provoking, and definitely motivational.
I really enjoyed it. Bill Phillips has done a thorough job of trying to get us off the sofa! He has an easy to follow meal plan, an entirely doable workout schedule, and plenty of pep talks! His methods make sense and are highly motivational and challenging. What I really appreciated about this book is that he's not trying to sell you the latest greatest fat burning pill or weight loss fad diet.
What he's offering here 4. What he's offering here is a life changer. Change the way you think, change the way you eat, change your body, and ultimately, change your life. The only reason this book didn't quite get a five star rating from me, is because I'm not entirely convinced you'll get the results in a mere 12 weeks, like he claims. Sure, for some people maybe, but not all.
And accept his challenge. It's all up to you- get in the best shape of your life! May 19, Lisa rated it it was amazing. Great exercise and eating plan. When I was following this plan, I could see a big difference in how I looked and felt. So far, every trainer I've talked to said that Bill Phillips has the best eating plan out there, and his meal supplements are the best EAS brand I really liked the workout section because it showed you exactly how to do the exercises, when to do them and how often to do them!!
Great for someone like me who knew nothing about an exercise plan. I made copies of the exercises in t Great exercise and eating plan. I made copies of the exercises in the back of the book and took them to the gym with me so I could make sure I did them right. View all 3 comments. Dec 11, Andrea rated it liked it. This is my favorite pop-culture diet book.
Mostly I like what it did for 'fad diet' books. It is a good basic guide on living a healthy life, for the general population Take the advice of eating 6 meals a day You don't have to follow his diet and his routine to have a fantastic body. The reality is, most of my clients who have read this book, believe you HAVE to follow it perfectly. If you are that motivated, and what This is my favorite pop-culture diet book.
If you are that motivated, and what to make a change Best investment you will ever make.
Quality of today tomorrow and your future. The cookbook has some good recipes, but save the money. You'll learn the same thing in even the most generic fitness magazine. Jun 16, John G. It really does give you a program and all the tools you'll need. It also provides a very hopeful philosophy as a foundation to build on. I've lifted weights and exercised for a long time, there are a lot of myths and plain BS floating around out there and this book helps clarify what actually works and why.
It's very structured, but yet not overwhelming at all.
You should be able to pick it up cheap at a used bookstore or Salvation Army somewhere, I got it for a buck. I think the author of this book is coming from a place of genuine care and that his motivations are good. This is the exact book I needed to find and put into use!
Jan 16, Marla rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone that wants to feel better about themselves.
Recommended to Marla by: Bill came into my life right when I needed him. I was going through a seperation and needed to feel good about myself. My son brought the book to my attention - something he wanted to do. I told him let me read it when you are finished so I will know how to help you. After a day of reading I told him - I want to do this with you!
We worked the book steadily for over 4 months. It was a truning point in both of our lives. It gave me the physical strength I needed. I lost 25 pounds in 3 months and Bill came into my life right when I needed him.
I lost 25 pounds in 3 months and toned up my body. I had more energy and learned the correct way to exercise. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to feel better about themselves. If you work this book you win! Jul 28, Angela rated it really liked it Recommended to Angela by: This book was not at all what I had expected. I read it on the recommendation of the Winn Brothers , and was impressed with the motivational exercises and positive psychology in the first half of the book.
I found the philosophies about tackling "feared things first" and seeking out "the right amount of positive pressure" very refreshing. The second half was all about balancing weight training with aerobic exercise, and eating 6 small, high quality meals every day. I have heart problems and need This book was not at all what I had expected.
I have heart problems and need to follow my own doctor's guidelines for exercise and diet, but I found those sections of the book interesting as well. Oct 28, Amelia rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: One summer I exercised doing cardio for an hour every day for three months, ate right, probably starved myself and I lost about 10 lbs, but I didn't look any different still flabby and soft in the middle.
It didn't even get me into the shape I wanted to be in for my hike down Havasupai canyon. The next January, I read Body for Life and it changed my perspective on losing weight and it transformed my body into something that looked guuuuud.
I have never been in better shape in my life. The Body f One summer I exercised doing cardio for an hour every day for three months, ate right, probably starved myself and I lost about 10 lbs, but I didn't look any different still flabby and soft in the middle.
The Body for Life for Women is good to read too, but this book inspired me the most. I still use the workouts and I subconsciously follow the meal plan, so I can say that it's changed my life. Dec 29, Shannon rated it did not like it. I read this last week while I was stuck under a napping Sarah solely because it was on my parents' shelf near me.
And I wouldn't recommend it. While I'm sure it's worked for many people, the advice on exercise seemed too constrained to something you have to do in a gym most of the time, and not something you can just go out and do with your family as a group activity. Jul 16, Mia Sajbel rated it did not like it. The more I learn about nutrition and fitness, the more disillusioned with this book I become. It was the first time I'd ever followed a health regime and I have to admit that I learned quite a bit from it.
But the fact that the author pushes the supplements from his company so hard that some days the suggested daily meal plans had three protein shakes of the sludge -- well it made me feel like I was in an infomercial. There are far superior products available. Oct 23, Katie rated it it was ok. I really liked the exercise program, but the diet just didn't work for me I didn't lose any weight that way.
Much better to just use the exercise techniques and eat fewer calories. May 25, Car rated it it was ok. I had a lot of trouble sticking to this! FOllowing the plan was easy, but my blood work went out of whack within 2 months of having too much protein. Jun 07, Marshall rated it did not like it. I'm always wary of books with chapters that have trademark symbols. This book reads like an infomercial. It spends more time making promises of amazing results than it does actually saying anything of substance.
It hints of a complete transformation into a thin, muscle-bound new you within 12 weeks. It's lined with before-and-after photos, which hints at what's possible with the program, but he never actually claims that they were achieved in 12 weeks. In fact, nothing was specifically clai Ugh.
In fact, nothing was specifically claimed to be possible within 12 weeks. Some of the guidance in this book is dead wrong. Like the intense minute cardio, which is actually anaerobic exercise, not effective for burning fat.
Or weightlifting consistently with the same exercises, which would lead the weightlifter to plateau and stop making progress right around, oh, 12 weeks.
Maybe that's why it's only a week program. This book isn't completely without substance or good advice.
The weightlifting routine it gives is pretty specific and useful. The exercises it provides in the appendix are great. And I like the idea of having a day off each week from healthy eating as well as exercising. It wouldn't be too detrimental, and it seems like it would make it much easier to stick to the diet. But otherwise, this book is garbage. Aug 01, Aaron rated it liked it. I am happy to read a book where the author is trying to stay with reality as much as possible.
I felt he addressed quite a few nagging topics for the average person in a very up front and positive manner.
I had participated in Phillips' exercise routine before but had not read the book. I spoke with my lifting partner I had then and apologized that I wasn't the partner he deserved or what I should have been.
I for sure should have read the book and committed to following through with it instead o I am happy to read a book where the author is trying to stay with reality as much as possible. I for sure should have read the book and committed to following through with it instead of wimping out so much.
Reading this did give me some pushing I needed to start getting serious about fitness. This book probably needs read through every few years. Apr 12, Travis rated it liked it. The first time I read this book I was preparing to put Bill Phillip's precepts to the test.
In twelve weeks I lost just over 35 lbs. I went on to lose another 20 lbs. The book itself is filled with testimonials that lengthen the book. I can see why others may have been turned off by this part of the book. I could have lived without this info, but it was there to read so I read it. If there is a knock on the book, that would be it. Needless to say, t The first time I read this book I was preparing to put Bill Phillip's precepts to the test.
Needless to say, the actual information could have been written in a fraction of the pages. His program is very practical and worked for me and my wife. We followed it by the letter and found his approach to fitness and weight loss to be very effective.
Sep 25, Kelley rated it really liked it. Good book. It challenged some of my life-long thoughts on fitness and exercise, but I think it's been a good change. Phillips is very encouraging.
Its so nice to have a plan really laid out for me. Many books cover some aspects of fitness, but this one is specific in all aspects. I like his plan - it's do-able and practical. He has good reference pages in the back for exercises and journals.
I keep renewing it from the library because I constantly refer to it and hate to let it out of my house. Guess I'd better just download it. I like both books very much. Aug 19, Danielle rated it liked it.
You know this is great for a lot of people. I read it thinking I would do it and kind of am I got some great ideas for the workouts and am following this. I found it very challenging to keep up with the nutrition though. I think I am a pretty healthy eater as is I eat a LOT of fruit and veggies normally and this plan restricts them.
I have a hard time with protein 6 times a day as well. Esp since beans are a major source of protein for me- but he considers them a starch. But You know this is great for a lot of people. But I still learned a lot and like his mentality- not just a program to lose weight, but a lifestyle to maintain health. Readers also enjoyed. Self Help. About Bill Phillips. Bill Phillips.

Trivia About Body For Life: No trivia or quizzes yet. I thought that as the program moved on I would notice a difference in the way my clothes fit. I definitely feel stronger — my arm and back muscles have definitely grown. All my pants seem so tight in the thighs and belly. When starting the program I decided to amp up my protein intake by stick with my normal eating.
I ate healthy for the most part but probably ended up eating more carbs and a tad bigger portions than what the plan recommends. This was probably my biggest mistake. Lack of cardio. The program calls for 20 minutes of HIIT, 3 times a week. I stuck to this as best I could but I think I personally need a bit more.
I feel consistently bloated. I know I will continue to keep strength training as a big part of my workout routine, but I might incorporate more full-body workouts rather than separating lower body and upper body into different days.
