DIET and NUTRITION

There is a lot of direction for what, when and how you should eat with Bill Phillips' Diet. Most important are the authorized foods - vegetables, carbs (grains and fruit) and proteins. You can pretty much eat whatever you like from these groups, as long as it fits with in the six small meals a day and within the portion guidelines. Phillips defines a portion as something that fits in the palm of your hand.

Nothing is totally off limits. Once a week you're allowed to cheat and have sugar. But you can have salt and most foods as long as they fit within the authorized food list.

Lose pounds, not flavor, with Bill Phillips. Some of the really tempting recipes offered in the book include:

  • Omelet with ham, peppers and onions
  • Tacos with creamy salsa dip
  • Peppered steak with oriental vegetables and noodles
  • Fortified Fudgesicle
  • Banana Cream Pudding
EXERCISE

Being the fitness guru that he is, Phillips isn't going to let you off easy in this department. Expect to be moving six days a week - one off for the cheat day. He goes into great detail in the book, but strongly encourages you to pursue cardio and weight-lifting exercises. There are a variety of options presented and you can select a routine that fits you best, no matter your skill level.

CONCLUSION

Learning the right (and wrong) foods, managing portions, exercising and staying hydrated are the key ideas to Bill Phillips' For Life Diet. This is one of the more balanced plans available, as it doesn’t exclude any one thing. It's about moderation and smart, healthy choices.

Why doesn't the Body of Life web site work anymore? And what is all this crap tied to anything about Bill Phillips? How can all this junk associate itself with Bill Phillips Eating for life, like ediets, etc.

This diet really seems to help me FEEL healthy. Not only does it give the body the nutrition it needs, it provides the attraction of toning the body at the same time. Some weight loss plans help you lose weight, but leave you looking saggy. It seems in no time, you not only are skinnier, but you want to be more physically active in your life. It has helped me sleep better, have higher self-esteem, and my body has thanked me because it can run faster and climb higher without straining.

I lost 60 pounds on this diet and have made exercise a permanent part of my life! Although I have gained some of the weight back, I've kept 30 pounds off for 9 years and continue to use the Bill Phillips workouts every day. My diet problems are all in my HEAD!!

Does this really work? It seems like you'd be eating too much

This guy is a genius. His recipes r good and flavorful and by eating so many times, you stay full. Cooking all the meals is another story, but you will lose weight

I started it 8 days ago, and I have lost 4.6 pounds already. Imagine taking your normal 3 meals a day and taking out a portion to have between meals...really not that much food.
