Bill Phillips Body For Life Diet Plan Review
If you are really serious about burning fat, getting fit and staying healthy and in shape for life then this is the programme for you. Read my Bill Phillips Body For Life Diet Plan Review and see for yourself first hand what is required to get in the best shape of your life. More importantly you will also learn how to maintain that shape too, for life!
I had the pleasure of being introduced to this classic over 10 years ago when it started to fly off the shelves and become a best seller. Recently I have been revisiting and reading it all over again and I can honestly say that Bill’s techniques and eating plan still work as well today as they did then. It has stood the test of time.
Bill Phillips Body For Life Diet Plan Review
A General Overview
The BFL programme is initially a 12 week fitness and fat loss system. Once you have completed your 12 weeks then you will have gained the knowledge and put yourself into a routine to make it into a permanent lifestyle.
The eating consists of meals and snacks 6 times every day and you are allowed potatoes and rice which are usually a big no-no on most diets. Protein is part of every meal/snack and good carbs come in the form of vegetables and fruit. This gives you lots of vibrant energy to get you through the 6 day workout plan that Bill has devised for you.
Eating this way means you will never feel hungry and you will hold onto your lean muscle tissue for a faster metabolism whilst you burn the fat off.
Those who are overweight can expect to lose 1-2 pounds consistently over the 90 day period. Anything more than that and you are probably losing valuable muscle mass so Bill will show you how to adjust your plan to suit.
What I love about his exercise routine is that he appreciates that we all live busy lives. So his cardio routines last only 20 – 30 minutes and his strength/resistance workouts only last 45 minutes. Don’t be fooled by the short duration as you will burn more fat due to the techniques you will use compared to regular cardio sessions.
Plus you do not have to be a member of a gym to be successful with this programme. All the exercises can be done with resistance bands or free weights at home and the cardio can be performed outdoors in the form of running, cycling and power walking etc.

How You Will Eat
There is no need for measuring and weighing of your foods. For main meals your plate is divided into 3. As an example for one of your 3 meals, 1st part rice or potatoe, 2nd part lean protein like white meat or fish and 3rd part will be a vegetable. Each portion is measured by the size of your clenched fist, easy!
Snacks come in the form of protein shakes and bars which are easy to grab when you are at work or on the go.
Now for the best part! One day a week Bill gives you a “cheat day”. This is where (with portion control, do not abuse your privilege) you get to eat your favourite junk foods. Yes, it means pizza, ice cream chocolates, burgers etc. This will re-boost your metabolism back into the fat burning zone and mentally stop you feeling deprived of your favourite naughty foods.
Included in the book are samples of meal plans and the food options. Bill Phillips is big on keeping things simple, he has worked everything out so you don’t have to. He has even written a separate book totally dedicated to BFL recipes so you can enjoy a variety in what you eat for the long term.

Your Exercise Programme
If you are not willing to get off your backside and do some work then Body For Life is not for you. This routine will totally reshape your body.
The cardio routines are all high intensity interval training ones. These burn calories while you perform them yet they also boost your metabolism for hours afterwards.
Resistance training routines are all laid out step by step with instructions on how to do the exercise correctly (with pictures). Right down to how long you rest between sets and the order in which you perform your exercises. Again Bill has thought every step through for you, just take action and get amazing results.
You will get the same results whether you train at home or in the gym, another great aspect of the plan.
Without having the correct mindset and a good positive attitude you will fail on any weight loss plan. BFL gives you simple, yet effective mindset methods that will keep you mentally strong for those days when the going gets tough.
He also explains where you may have fallen down on previous fat loss programmes and shows you how to turn that around for success with this one.
Are There Any Negatives?
Nothing is perfect within any programme and this one has its cons too. The only negative thing I have to say is that Bill Phillips owns a supplement company and in the book he pushes his brand of products onto you. Having said that, you can use other alternatives of protein shakes/bars and still get amazing results.
As long as you look beyond the occasional EAS supplement promotion then there are no other negatives that I could find.
