less time more results

by Donald M on Nov 14, 2013

This book has been around for years, and if you don't like it, you can always eat it . . . low in calories, high in fiber. That said . . . you should read the entire book because there are bits of information throughout. Basically, the book is challenging you to hit your peak and discover potential you didn't think you had. Sure, there are a ton of magazine like people who grace the book and the site with before and after shots. But there are also everyday people who look a ton better after committing themselves to body for life. Just because the book is old, its ideas aren't dated . . . and it takes less than ONE HOUR A DAY. If you haven't read it, buy the book. When you're done, give it to a gravity challenged friend. And be amazed at how good you look.

Excellent beginners fat loss guide

by Dboy on Nov 8, 2007

The author makes this book easy to read, easy to understand and easy to apply. I recommend it for those who are beginning a weight training, cardio and nutritional program. I use Bill Phillips model and his brother's Shawn Phillips, "Absolution," as part of my variety of yearly workouts. They ideas are similiar, but it helps me change up my work outs when I am feeling the need to change. Definitely, I recommend for beginners and as a part of an ongoing plan to stay fit.

It's a pretty good book, and it helped me change my workout into something that was much more effective so that I started to see results. I didn't see any of the dramatic changes that some of the participants in his Body for Life challenge demonstrated, but then again, I also didn't really take his supplements that they did so that probably played a role. His "authorized foods" are good for you, but you shouldn't restrict yourself to just those. I think you would leave yourself open to nutritional deficiencies (ie calcium deficiency) if you stuck to his diet alone so you should find out other foods that are good for you outside of his diet. I would recommend reading another book such as "You on a diet" by Dr. Oz to learn more than what Phillips says because he has great experience that you can learn from, but he is not an expert. I'm not saying Dr. Oz is an expert, but I am a bit biased and like to know what science and research have to say as well.
