Has anyone tried Body for Life? Does it work? Any suggestions?
bill phillip's book/program/diet
I know people who have had success on it, lost body fat pretty quickly, but I don't know about strength/numbers
what is your goal?
I've never personally done it but several people at my work have. They lost a lot of weight.
from what I've heard its good for losing weight. Its not really like a bodyfat burning type thingy. My buddy was following it for a while, lots of low weight, high rep stuff IIRC
My goal is to look better and loss weight. If I get stronger hat would be good too.
It is a workout program. I have read a lot about it. Looking to see other opinions on it.
fix your fucking font size and color asshole

i got $5 on this tool being a troll
My dad had the book and I read it (it's a very short book, especially if you skip the fat peoples stories).
I read it after going through the stickies in F&N and reading any post that I found interesting on the main pages (probably got about 12 pages in), instead of asking the same n00bish questions that seem to get asked over and over every day in F&N.
Anyway, what my point is is that everything I gathered from reading in F&N towards healthy eating/living/exercising is exactly what Body for Life is about.
5-6 meals of proper food each day, lots of protein, lots of healthy carbs, etc. It just trys to emphasize planning for those who will fall off the wagon really fast if they don't plan (most people).
It's a good book for anyone who doesn't know anything about how to get into good shape, and doesn't have F&N to read through
doesnt eas sponsor some of that shit, or package some of their stuff as bein part of the program or sumthin ?
Bill Phillips(author) bought EAS from Ed Byrd (Creator of N02) and Athnony Almada, in the early 90's, then sold the company in 2004. Body for Life has been out for quite a long time and Bill used BFL to sell EAS supplements. His MRP was especially popular (and ridiculously overpriced - as is all EAS supplements)
His brother, Shawn Phillips also founded his own company, "Phillips Performance". But I believe it recently went under.
Learn somethin new everyday, and fuck yea EAS is way overpriced.
