I am getting ready to switch from SB to BFL..i am just waiting on my book...the reason I am switching is because I want to mix things up a bit and since I already do weights, etc...I thought it would be a nice switch... (plus I am hoping to get DH to do it )

I was on South Beach (SB) and I started that way of eating in January..love it and have lost over 30 pounds...I try to do weights or cardio at least 3-5 times a week...

BFL is Body For Life. It is broken down into a 12 week program. It's where you can break down what you eat into 5 meals a day and each meal contains a protein. Even with South Beach you are encouraged to have 3 meals a day and 2 snacks and you are encouraged to have protein with those meals. The reason for the protein is because it helps to break down the carbs. So one day on Body for life you will do weights and work the upper body..the next day its just cardio...then for the 3rd day you will do lower body, 4th cardio..it just rotates out like that and you have the 7th day free. You can eat whatever you want (I would recommend still making healthy choices) and you don't exercise that day. You can check out their website at

Body For Life

I love the BODY FOR LIFE program. I was doing that program before i got pregnant and plan on picking it up as soon as i get the okay from the doctor. I had a c-section so my doc told me absolutely no workouts until she sees me again.. so i'm stuck waiting. I really cant' wait to start again and wish i could start with you on Monday.

I'm not even sure when my appt is, because i got put on a waiting list.. but i wish you the best of luck.. and once i begin.. we can share experiences together.

I really do hope you stick around cuz i haven't found to many BFLers.

I didn't know that there was a journal now..is that on their site..

I did know they had the book for women, I am curious about how it is..I read the reviews on amazon and some people liked it and some didn't.

I am really hoping that my DH will start it too...but he probably won't.

i got a journal for like $18 i think.. and yes it' son Amazon. They have used ones on sale... but make sure you find one that hasn't been written in.

and the body for life for women is good.. but the regular one covers just about everything too. The only diff i see is that it goes into deltails about different stages of life for women. But, i dont think it's necessary to have and i got great results with the first book too.
