I'm busy doing the body-for-life programme.
I'm 5 weeks into the 12 week programme. I've missed only 4 days, so am quite happy with my consistency.
After week 1 I was pretty exhausted and didn't think I would be able to last but my energy levels soon increased dramatically.
The first thing I noticed was my weight loss. I've moved my belt 2 notches, and whilst I did see some toning it hasn't been too noticeable - or so I thought. Last night I ran into some old friends who asked if I'd been working out and said that I look really good.
I was never a fat guy but I was starting to pick up some weight.
The book also has an eating plan - basically 6 smaller meals thoughout the day for 6 days and one day you can eat whatever you want.
I haven't been dogmatically strict with my diet e.g. with the supplements, but I have been eating very well with only few lapses.
The book was written by a guy named Bill Phillips in the 90s and is still on the shelves which I think is a testament to the programme. However, yuo can probably find the workout for free on some of the bodybuilding websites. The book though is a very inspiring read and highly recommended
Eager to see the outcome after 12 weeks.
