Being away from home for 8 Months, I need help on how to eat healthy....
Hello all, I have a problem that I desperately need help with. On 15 July I left my wife and 2 boys in Germany to train in the US for 2 months before I get deployed to Afghanistan for 6 months. For the first week that I have been here I have either been eating fast food or not eating at all to compensate...

BFL meal plan alterations during an injury
HELP! I tore my LCL (not too horribly it seems) but this is obviously affecting my workout. I'm trying to alter my meal plans to be much less calorie intensive since I'm not able to work out as often or as intensely. I will still be doing cardio can't as intensely for at least 6 months...

BFL after Open Heart Surgery
Hello All, I've done BFL off and on during the last 11 years with sometimes great results, and sometimes I didn't finish due to injuries/illness. I've been challenged in the past 10 years, having undergone 5 surgeries and having a child! The most recent surgery was major open heart surgery...

Back on track after 10 years!
In 1999, my new year's resolution was "go to the gym and get fit". Hubby then dragged me to Healthy Life where the gorgeous girl who managed it (can't remember her name now) pulled out Bill Phillips' book "Body For Life" and showed me a picture on the jacket of a girl...

Re: The Cost of Beginning
I can only believe that I WILL get better at the early morning hours, telling myself I will have more daytime and less night time to worry about should help a little. I have a bench on order and have a small set of dumbbells, but I will probably buy more weights as time goes on and I actually get stronger...

Couldn't Get Up This Morning...
One of the hardest things for me in this lifestyle change is getting up early in the morning - I have always had trouble doing it, often getting out of bed 15 minutes before I had to leave the house. I have been doing well since starting BFL (I'm in W2D3) but today I couldn't get up for my...

Question about snacks
Hi, I am new to Body For Life, I know about the program but haven't done it. I am wondering if there are suggestions for snacks/protein shakes that are available in local supermarkets, Costco, etc. that are as good as the EAS Myloplex. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks so much. Kathy

I'm back and on my way
I have completed this program in the past and know for a fact it works. I am on Week 1 day 2 and have had a few set backs but more successes than set backs. I am eating better/healthier and consistently. I have worked out 2 days in a row (yeah for me) and I have reviewed my goals daily. I am looking...
