Body for Life
Body for Life is a program designed by Bill Phillips to challenge the average person to make healthy changes in their life. Body for life is not just about getting results in changing your body but becoming a winner in every sense of the word - both personally and physically.
Body for Life Challenge
Body for life is typically a 12-week program called a challenge. Body for Life is structured so that the average person can do it and achieve results without being a fitness or diet expert.
Body for Life Diet Plan
In the Body for Life diet plan, you eat 5-6 small portion sized meals per day. Each meal has one portion of protein (meats), one portion of quality carbohydrates and one portion of green vegetables. By eating several small portion sized meals per day, your body is better able to regulate insulin production keeping cravings to a minimum and supply a steady supply of nutrients to the body. One of the differences of Body for Life and other diet plans is that one day a week you get a 'free day' where you get to eat what you want.
Body for Life Exercises
Body for Life requires rigorous but realistic workouts. You will work out 6 days per week, alternating weight lifting and aerobic activity each day. On your weight lifting days you will alternate between upper body and lower body workouts to build each up and allow the other time to recover.
