Talking Body for Life program

I used this program about 5 years ago and it work GREAT. I ate exactly like you are supposed to and excercised like the program required. I went from 248# to 217# in 2 1/2 months. I felt and looked great.

I don't really need to lose much weight but I've gone from 163 to 154 since I started doing the eating/aerobics and I can definitly see more muscle definition. I just recently started the weight training so I havn't really gotten any bigger yet but I'm improving. My legs are getting really defined from the aerobics and I can tell a big difference when I'm at work where I have to walk around all day. It's no longer a tiring experiance. I still have a little bit of fat I'd like to lose from my stomach but hopefully my weight will start going back up soon when I start putting on some muscle.

Try it.....BE CONSISTENT to get results and then take it from there. I have learned consistency is more important than anything. You have to give it a chance to work on your body. When you no longer get the results you want, time to change it up. Hope that helps!

I like this answer. Also it's something that the majority of people have a good chance of following and staying with. And I'd rather them stick with this then get frustrated and quit.

Seems like there should be more cardio, though? Id try for like 40 minutes.

No way. By the time I'm done with the 20 minute cardio I'm worn out. I do it more than just 3 times a week though.

I find 40 minutes...60 minutes of cardio not half as productive as a intense 16-20 minute session. When it comes to cardio there are two choices:
1. Quick and intense 16-20 minute session
2.45-60 minutes worth of low intensity (jogging, ect.)

For preserving muscle the first one is optimal.

Option 1 is my favorite. I hate cardio but I can get an intense 20 min session in and love it.

Yeah, but since I work so much I don't have but one or two days to really enjoy it. I find it's easiest on the bike machine at the gym. I like to try and beat my previous stats. (ie. speed, distance travelled, difficulty level)

I stick with the bikes also, I always try to keep my RPM above 100 per minute. It never happens in higher levels tho, only on level 1,2 and 3. Taurus that 10w30 joke was awesome.
