The #1 New York Times bestseller Body-for-LIFE helped hundreds of thousands of people the world over to build stronger bodies and enjoy a higher quality of life. Now Dr. Pamela Peeke, bestselling author of Fight Fat After Forty, adapts the unique insights of the Body-for-LIFE program to the specific hormonal, metabolic, and physiological requirements of women so they can achieve the same rapid, life-transforming results.
Dr. Peeke draws on cutting-edge research as she fashions a 12-week eating, exercise, and emotional health program, specially tailored to women. Those who read Dr. Peeke's first book, or who have seen her in her numerous television appearances on Oprah, Larry King, Dateline, Primetime, Today, and other shows know how inspirational she can be—and never more than in this audio program, motivating, cajoling, and instructing her readers to make the changes that will produce a lifetime of mental and physical fitness.

    " I worked out with body for life the original a few years back... this is just for women and if you're looking for a great how to, this is it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelli | 2/13/2014

    " Dr. Peeke made me think about health differently, which is the best thing she could have done for me. Love her research, love her passion, and love her methodology. I'm SO there! One week down, eleven to go! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emi | 2/6/2014

    " This was good because it was geared towards women. It was ok because you had to be in the gym 6 days a week until you reach your goal weight. It's just another low fat diet, eat every 3 hrs. It works only if you follow it to a T. She recommends eating lots of protein but says she'd prefer everyone follow a vegetarian diet like herself but if you can't then it's ok to eat meat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Borgman | 2/6/2014

    " This is great for women of any ages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/30/2014

    " I've read this twice. I've read it through different stages in my life. It is a little off from the original Body for LIFE. I think I prefer the original and the Champions versions of BFL, however, there is a lot of helpful information in here about the changes women go through during their lives which is great for women who don't have other female family members to discuss these issues with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 1/29/2014

    " The ssecond best fitness and nutrition book for women, it covers a healthy eating plan you only have to follow 80 percent of the time; a fitness routine; and the changes to a woman's body at various milestones in her life. A good book to buy when you're young too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/15/2014

    " HOPE is what i'm learning from Body-For-Life For Women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett Thompson | 1/13/2014

    " Good book for women wanting to be fit, especially if your over 40 in my opinion, great science to back up the philosophy. Easy to follow pictures and explanations of workouts, comes with progress charts. Highly recommend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dayini | 1/12/2014

    " This book is okay, however it seems to misrepresent itself as it's almost a full departure from the actual Body-for-LIFE plan. I'd recommend Body-for-LIFE, Champions Body-for-LIFE, or Strength for Life over this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 12/22/2013

    " This book is really helpful. Some of it is cheesy, but there are some really great strategies and I don't feel like the author is full of shit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/13/2013

    " I was in the hunt for a good weight loss plan. This one didn't really help me much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alaina | 11/13/2013

    " This is the best book I've read about nutrition for women, with easy to follow steps on how to loose weight and stregthen yourself! A book i've reccomended to anyone wanting to know the correct and easy way to get in shape the 90 days challenge is gReat!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lianne Packard | 9/18/2013

    " Would be great if I actually followed it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shenai | 9/1/2013

    " I liked how this book focused on women's different stages of life and how their nutritional needs can differ. Good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 8/14/2013

    " I really liked this book, and I am not into self help/ diet books at all. I found this program worked for me - I lost 12 pounds with it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/23/2013

    " I am working on this plan now. I end on Oct. 31. I hope that I can stick with it. Was an inspirational book for eating well and taking care of myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 7/9/2013

    " Great book - esp. for those of us dealing with changes on our bodies - unwelcome changes! Now if I could just progress from the reading to the DOING stage... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/13/2013

    " I wasn't so interested in the bulk of the book since I get information on eating elsewhere, but Appendix A which shows specific weight bearing exercises and clear examples was excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/30/2013

    " This is not as good as Bill Philips book but only because i have read his so many times & loved his 12 week program. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/20/2013

    " I love this book! The inspirational stories were very motivating. I did not actually follow this plan, but I can see where it would be a great one to be under. It made complete sense. The before and after pics are quite motivational also. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg Cusack | 4/20/2012

    " My obstetrician told me I should read this book. I was asking her about how to generally maintain health and fitness as I age. She said if there is one book I could buy on these topics, this is it.. It is sensible, not overwhelming, practical and well-researched. It applies to women of all ages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adriana | 10/28/2011

    " I prefer the original BFL book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saadia | 10/25/2011

    " This book is in the corporate gym for everyone to use so I read a couple of pages at a time. It is very interesting even though I am really not reading every word, every line. Some of the information I already knew and some doesn't apply to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/7/2011

    " I've always liked the Body For Life program. This had some good information since it was specifically geared to women. The reading was a little dry and it took me a while to get through it even though I was interested in the topic - hence the 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 4/12/2011
