Bob Greeneâ€™s The Best Life Diet
Posted 20 November 2008 - 04:46 PM
Right now the tentative start date for Biggest Loser 5 is Wednesday, January 7th.
The plan we are going to follow is Bob Greeneâ€™s The Best Life Diet. You can get it for $7 on amazon. Amazon.com: Used and New: The Best Life Diet
I suggest buying the book now, so you have time to prepare for biggest loser. It would help to read the book first, try out some recipes, and find a workout plan that will work for you. Itâ€™s always easiest to stick to a program if you are prepared for it. Also, it might keep you on track during the holidays to not gain weight.
here is a link for more info about the plan
The Best Life Diet
I have read a lot of weight loss & nutrition books and I have been the most impressed by this one. I used to work at a gym and I took several nutrition classes in college. Iâ€™m not an expert, but I do plan on getting more familiar with this book and others to help everyone through the weight loss process the best I can.
I really think with a great plan and some motivation we can make Biggest Loser 5 the best yet! Are you in?
You should consult with a healthcare professional before starting any diet, exercise, supplementation or medication program.

sorry, I'm long winded & don't have an abridged version
from the website:
The Best Life program is not one of those conventional plans where youâ€™re either â€œonâ€ or â€œoffâ€ a diet. Instead itâ€™s a way of living â€” of eating, of exercising, of viewing your life â€” that puts you at your healthiest. Sure, one of the primary goals of the program is to lose weight. But it also has a more far-reaching purpose: to keep the weight off, and develop habits that dramatically reduces your risk of diabetes, heart disease and other ills. Is emotional eating a problem? The Best Life program also helps you tackle that demon. Youâ€™ll be following a three-phase program, take it at your own pace. Each phase gradually leads you to an increasingly healthy and slimming diet and encourages you to increase physical activity (donâ€™t worry, brisk walking counts, you donâ€™t have to go to the gym). Pretty soon, youâ€™ll be amazed at how different â€” and wonderful â€” your life has become.

a nice thing is you can follow any diet you want. it's sort of like weight watchers. there are options, but no set diet.
the recipes look so yummy. I'll probably order the cookbook too.
The sample weeks of meals are more complicated than I think I could keep up with. I'm usually cooking for 1 (although I'd like to get mike involved). I usually make some meals on weekends & have leftovers throught the week and make simple meals during the week. so I'll be modifying it to suite that. he also talks about healthy, quick options. best life diet approved foods have a seal on their package to make it easier. I didn't notice they were there before.
what I really like is how the emphasis is on health & a good lifestyle. I really can't believe how much he covered in one book. it addresses the reasons why we overeat, how to avoid pitfalls, workout guidelines, and a lot more.
