The Best Life Diet is the only diet system endorsed by Oprah Winfrey, and the only program that helped her get her excess weight off and keep it off. It was developed by Bob Greene as a way to free people from the vicious cycle of weight loss and weight gain. Bob wants people who struggle with their weight to figure out exactly what they want out of their lives and confront the real reasons that they can’t shed those extra pounds. It isn’t so much a diet as it is a lifestyle change and lifelong commitment to your health.
The Best Life Diet is a full lifestyle program that you can access through his book and online. It is supported by an online community of people with common goals and struggles. The foundations of this program are the two only proven methods of weight loss—a sensible diet and a consistent exercise program. Online, participants can access meal plans, work-outs, video and article archives, and message boards fll of support.
There are three phases to the diet portion of The Best Life. You slowly phase in healthy food choices like vegetables and fruits and phase out poor choices like fried foods, pasta, and sugary drinks. The phases let you make small steps towards success, but they aren’t so strict that they set you up for failure. Each phase builds on the previous phase so that by phase three, you have made the full conversion to healthy eating but are still allowed small amounts of your favorite treats. Online, participants can make use of Bob’s meal plans. With different options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks posted everyday, there is plenty of variety to keep this diet from getting boring.
In addition to eating well, The Best Life program requires participants to commit to consistent workouts including cardio and strength training. Varying workouts helps keep exercise fresh and fun. Bob has also developed different phases of workouts to correspond to the different diet phases. Using the phases, even the most out of shape can get started exercising and build towards a more active lifestyle. And once you’ve reached a more active level, you can afford to eat a little more of the not-so-good-for-you things you love.
The Best Life Program is a true lifestyle change that is a safe, effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Unlike fad diets or quick-fixes it doesn’t promise miracles unless you put in the work, but if you do, the results will amaze you!
