DIET and NUTRITION

Each week Phillips updates the nutrition section of the Transformation website with new tips, findings and recipes.

There is a big focus on “The Right Recipe:” Using the right recipe, Phillips explains just what it means to eat right. The Right Recipe includes four components – right foods, right amounts, right combos and the right times.

The right foods points directly to the book Eating for Life also written by Phillips. All of the 150 recipes included in that book include the six nutrients that are essential to great health: protein, carbohydrates, essential fats, vitamins, minerals and water.

The right amounts focuses on portion sizes. Basically the recommendation here is to continue using the recipes in the Eating for Life book so that you don’t have to count calories. Portion sizes are explained and Bill communicates the importance of not eating too much or too little during meals.

Next you have the right combos. This is important because you have to have the right combination of foods in order to be successful. This is important for your overall health as well as the reduction of certain diseases. For the right combo, you simply have a portion of protein, carbs and vegetables with each of your core meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. For the right times component of the program, you have a simple answer.

The suggestion is to eat six meals per day, spread out evenly. Eating six meals per day actually fuels your metabolism and helps your body burn fat more efficiently.

While on the Transformation program, you will eat a meal every two to three hours throughout the day. Following the Right Recipe principles also comes with the ability to incorporate some of the following delicious recipes:

  • Santa Fe Chicken Soup
  • Asian Beef Stir Fry
  • Baked Chicken Parmesan
  • Balsamic Salmon Salad
  • Grilled Fish Tacos
  • Chicken Pomodoro
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Zesty Italian Chicken
  • Cool Taco Salad
  • Chicken Pita Pizza
  • Fortified French Toast
  • Fruit Smoothie
  • Golden Pancakes
  • Egg-Cellent Enchiladas
  • Power Omelet
  • Chocolate Oatmeal
EXERCISE

Exercise is another very important component of the Transformation Challenge.Phillips takes you through a video that contains his top 12 free-weight exercises for building muscle. He also gives some recommendations for what types of cardio are helpful.

Unlike some other exercise programs, cardio and strength training are combined to give you maximum results. Consistency is the big focus with exercise on this program. You are pretty much allowed to choose which exercises you do and what works best for you. There is advice given for those of all fitness levels. You simply start at whatever level you are at and progress from there, not taking on too much before you’re ready.

For the first couple of weeks, the important thing is to get moving. For cardio one suggestion made is running, jogging or walking for 30 minutes three to four times per week. For strength training days you can utilize Phillps' top 12 free-weight list or customize your own workout. Strength training can be done two or three days per week on days that you aren’t doing cardio, with one day of rest per week where neither cardio nor strength training is done.

Phillips' top 12 free-weight exercises include:

  • Dumbell bench press
  • Flyes
  • Side raises
  • Overhead press
  • Tricep extension
  • Tricep kickback
  • Rowing
  • Back raise
  • Standing curls
  • Reverse curl
  • Lunges
  • Dumbell squat
CONCLUSION

For those looking to truly transform their bodies, you would be hard-pressed to find a program as thorough as the Transformation Challenge by Bill Phillips. Not only does the program give you all the tools you need to be successful, but everything is free. There might be some additional costs if you decide to purchase the full Eating for Life book to have the recipes that are available, but other than that, you have what you need on the web site.

There is no charge for this program and if you decide to go through with the Transformation Challenge from start to finish, you could win the $50,000 prize.

mmediately noticed results! My "freshman 15" rapidly disappeared and other areas of my life also improved. I attended all my classes

and started doing better in school. I made sure I had no excuses to slack off. Everybody has time in their day to improve themselves. Throughout the

program I stayed focused and followed TSC's proven principles to make my transformation successful. Today, I'm in excellent shape and will

continue to follow the program because it works. With TSC, there aren't any gimmicks, It's the REAL THING! If you want to transform your life and

become a fit, fast and strong all-natural athlete, The TSC Heart of a Champion will surpass your expectations.

Transformations has a lot of cost. You have to pay to be signed up for the 18 week challenge, and then you are inundated with emails about buying their specific product line of food, which in my opinion is not sustainable. I would think the program would be encouraging more whole food consumption and eating real food rather than processed foods to support good health and fitness. Instead you end up just padding the organizations pockets.

In my opinion, I do NOT believe this program is sustainable. It is VERY hard to eat six time a day for life, and in my opinion, there are some really petty folks in the community that seem shallow and into furthering their own interests. We traveled all the way to DENVER at our own expense and it was my understanding that the top 10% "finishers" were going to receive a medal for our efforts. This was untrue. Also, this summer, the site went down mysteriously and Mr. Phillips all but seemed to disappear. After the site came back up, his name was off the site header for a period and his profile/photos not visible. After he came back, everyone swept it under the rug, but Chapter 12 in the book is about Making Things Right. I was very hurt and shocked when this happened. I feel like this should have been addressed in depth, which I feel was NOT, and this was important to me because I feel like my trust and faith were violated. I am more than sure that I am not alone in my feelings or perceptions. To me, it is not something you can pretend didn't happen. I was heart broken because it seemed to me that Mr. Phillips was not practicing what he was preaching. Chapter 12 Bill!! Chapter 12. . .

Transformation was everything to me and I spent hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours on the site. The principals in the book seemed like good ones to live by, but the site itself had what I perceived to be some very bad apples that spoiled the experience. I was heavily invested in the site and when Bill seemingly went missing (his profile was not accessable and I could not view his name or pictures), I was heartbroken. I feel that he should have made things right with the community by acknowleging what happened, as this (making things right) is what his chapter twelve is about. I feel like he just blew it off like it was no big deal, but people were hurt, and I lost faith and trust in Bill and the site. It seemed like most of the people simply were scared to say anything because they were apparently afraid he'd leave again. I now feel like Transformation is like a cult. I never want to lose myself like that ever again, because what I thought was real turned out to be a lie to me. I can't trust something like that, which seems to me to be so contrary to itsself. I've done so much better with Weight Watchers. The people are real, and there's no competition, only sheer support and goodwill! I would steer clear of Transformation, because I ended up getting really hurt.

This program is intended to fight the bulge from the inside out, not outside in. Transformation is about learning why and how you got to where you are and how to change that for a lifetime. I say run, don't walk and check out the website and I highly recommend you buy the book. Do the work you won't be disappointed!
