    I'm just curious whether anyone has tried the Body for Life workout and/or nutrition program? Any success (or not) stories?

    I tried it for about 2 days, then fell off the wagon. Probably not helpful icon_smile.gif
    I've seen the video, which isn't called Body For Life, and it worked for those people.

    A friend of mine who was extremely overweight started to lose weight by eating a mostly raw diet, with tons of veggies and fruit. After he had lost a bunch of weight (10 - 20 pounds over the course of a month or two), he started doing Body For Life and had great results. He lost about 80 more pounds doing that.

    I personally think the program is great as a catch all to lose weight, if you're overweight. If you're not really overweight, then I'd go with something more tailored to you.

    That's my 2 cents.

    I agree with Unclevername. I did the Body for Life a few years back and got real nice results. The diet is strict, but they give you a 'break' day where you can eat anything that you have been craving. I liked the lifting routines because they gave you options so it did not seem so monotonous. I never got the six pack abs though. I think that has more to due with genetics. I do think that you have to find a program that you are comfortable with to get your desired results!! Good luck!icon_biggrin.gif

    I think Body for Life and it's new accompanyment is very good.
    It's what got me back into the gym with my partner 3 years ago.
    THe work outs are very straight forward and the diet isn't as strict, it give good guidelines. With the work outs, and taking photos it helps show the progress and results and fowards the motivation. The diet is based more on a nutrionalists mentality. In fact my mother has lost 25lbs following a very similar program. It's about portions mostly and NOT getting too hungry. Also, all the myoplex and EAS products are very good. For a drink powder it dissolves very nicely and the Eating For Life cook book has some great dishes and menus.
    I think it works and gives a good baseline to get good habits started.
    Just so you know I don't recive anything for this much accolades to them.

    If you're trying to build muscle, the diet program in it isn't going to be ideal for you.

    However, the workout program it gives is intense. I left the gym shaking every day the first week.

    My friend and her ex husband went on a Body for Life lifestyle change and saw amazing results.....with pictures as proof.
    Their bodies changed week after week becoming leaner and tighter...and finally by the 14th or 16th week their bodies had changed completely. They looked like underwear models. They were both amazingly lean, fit and healthy. I was impressed by this program and strongly recommend this change in lifestyle/ workout/ diet. It's healthy and seems very reasonable.
