Body for Life






Summary


A high-protein, healthy carbohydrate diet combined with strength-training exercise to achieve a super fit body.


Description


You are encouraged to eat more often, 6 meals a day. But, those meals should consist of lean protein and healthy carbohydrates. The idea is to maintain stable energy levels throughout the day.

Lean meats like fish, chicken and turkey, plus some specific lean beef is encouraged. Most vegetables are encouraged. Unsaturated fats are OK. Sweets and discouraged, but high-glycemic carbs seem to be allowed. You are encouraged to take a nutritional supplement as well.

Exercise is a key component of the Body-for-Life plan. High-intensity training the cornerstone. This allows you to burn more fat and increase your metabolism. Ultimately, you can even shape your body. Workouts consist of strength-training and high-intensity cardio workouts. You do each just three times a week. The exercises are common, but the key is to include some high-intensity sets at the end of each exercise.


History


Bill Phillips wrote the book, "Body for life" in 1999. He has been publishing bodybuilding magazines and marketing supplements for years.


Criticism


The body-builder approach doesn't fit some people's style. The supplement you are encouraged to three times a day is made by Bill Phillips's company. The breakdown of carbohydrates is questionable.

James,I am SO pleased with my 9 pound wghiet loss since I began running. It took forever to lose at first .then it started coming off pretty quickly. I was running 3 miles every other day, but recently have booted it up to running 3 miles one day then 2 miles the next and so on .I'd like to know if it's a bad thing or a good thing to run every day now? Will I hurt my muscles by doing that? I'm planning to run my first 5K with my 35 yr old daughter and 8 yr old grandson in 3 weeks, and want to be in top form. Am I going about it the right way .and is my running every day going to keep my wghiet loss going? I am 130 lbs now and want to be 124 by the time I run the 5K.I am a VERY healthy eater, have cut out sugar pretty much entirely, and feel wonderful. Would love your input on my running every day and my wghiet loss goal. Many thanks!
