Reviews - What do customers think about Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength?
If you are ready to look great and be healthy, this is how! Mar 30, 2007
As a physician, I have taken people off hundreds of medicines thanks to Bill Phillips. Blood pressure medicines, cholesterol medicines, diabetes medicines, and pain medicines. I myself lost 6 sizes in six weeks and have keep it off for 3 years now. My before and after pictures are at least as impressive as the ones in his book. This is for the person that's really ready to go for it. It takes organization, but it works. It holds your hand through the process and teaches you about portions and being hungry in quite a simple way. Highly recommended. Also highly recommeded, Bill Phillips, Body for Life Journal and also his Eating For Life, receipe book.
Very user friendly Mar 19, 2007
A guide to exercise and working out that is perfect for those who exercise at home, and it's very user friendly.
It works. Mar 9, 2007
The best part of this book is the planning pages for your exercises. It REALLY helps to keep track of what you've done and how much you have exerted yourself so you can keep trying to improve. It also helps to have a plan so you aren't wondering what you did last time or what you should do next. I have really increased my strength, stamina, and energy level over the last 8 weeks of following the program.
The reason I gave it a 4 was because if you are going to do all your workouts at home with free weights and a bench (which I do), your choices of exercises are limited. I would have liked to see more choices that don't need those fancy machines like they have at the gym.
PS. Check out Eating for Life as well. I didn't think it would ever work, but combined with this...it does!
The way to Live Mar 8, 2007
Body for Life has changed thousands of people's lives and my own in just a few weeks. Sure you can use it to lose or you can use it to lose and keep it off by continuing on with this way of eating and exercising plus setting goals to improve you life along with your body. Just go for it!
Supplement Push? Relax People... Mar 7, 2007
This is the program that all other fitness "gurus" glean from. The info in this book is presented in a structured, user-friendly format. I know of several bodybuilders and fitness beginners who've obtained stellar results. As for those who are bent-out-of-shape (excuse the pun)claiming Mr. Phillips is pushing the Myoplex line..relax. You don't need to buy his meal replacements, and he clearly states that in the 1 1/2 pages dedicated to this subject. Anyone can tell you that supplements are an important component in an effective nutritional plan - whether you use an EAS product or chose another line - you'll be well served to invest in a portable protein and/or MRP supplement. Outstanding book and already a classic.
