Body-for-LIFE transforms to HEALTH for LIFE

Just received results from my recent medical check up which included an in depth blood test by Boston Heart Diagnostics. (Ask your doctor for that blood work if you are over 45 because it is the best information you can get on your heart health and more.) This chart (which is very personal information by the way…) shows some of my important results.

Folks over 45 (and over 50 like me) are crusin for a brusin if they neglect their health. Over a million people in America will have a heart attack this year. Don’t imagine for a second that you couldn’t be one of them. We ALL have to work to be healthy, myself included.

On my test results, you see information pertaining to 3 of the primary causes of disease and preventable death: 1) Cholesteol and other Blood lipids; 2) Systemic Inflammation (if chronic, inflammation is probably the number one cause of early death; and 3) Blood Sugar/Insulin (I eat carbohydrates with every meal and my blood sugar readings are spot on optimal–don’t believe the BS that you have to go no carb or even low carb to have insulin and glucose balance).

In all 3 of these areas shown in the chart, the results are optimal. Further artery tests indicate no aging the last 4 years; in fact, with my consistent workouts and supplements and eating right most of the time (not all the time) my cardiovascular system has literally become renewed and ‘younger.’ I am ‘younger’ at 51 than I was at 47 believe it or not. (My wife Maria is very much a force in me transforming my health after hitting a very low point some years ago.Thank you Maria!!)

My Dad used to say don’t take advice from someone who isn’t doing well in the arena they are teaching. For example, don’t take wealth building advice from a person in poverty. Don’t take mental health advice from someone who is crazy.

For health advice, find someone who is getting the results you want and do what they are doing… that might be a smart approach. (Its weird because many doctors are overweight and unhealthy as are many personal trainers).

Anyways… if you’ve been to my Transformation Camp, you know exactly what I am doing because I go over and over it and then it is what I ask you to do. Those who follow through and also FTDI (Follow The Darn Instructions) are often stunned by the results not just in their body change but in their HEALTH TRANSFORMATION.

Back in the Body-for-LIFE days the focus really was on building a better BODY. Today, what I teach is focused on your HEALTH. The good news is, if you do what you need to do to make a sustainable Health Transformation, you get a better body in the process. I used to say transformation can change your body and life. Today I say it can change your health and SAVE YOUR LIFE.

I want to say this again because it is so important: More than a million people in America will have a heart attack this year, don’t be one of them. Every 39 seconds on average, an unsuspecting man or woman in our country dies of heart disease–that’s 2,200 deaths just today! Most of the time it is preventable.

FREE ADVICE TODAY: If you’re not exercising consistently, START today. Walking and weights are a good place to begin. See your doctor for a check up if you haven’t been this year. Work your way up to doing intense interval aerobics and intense free-weight exercise, about a half hour a day, 5 or 6 days a week. That is what I do. Lifting (and lowering) free weights is safe, effective, efficient… we go for low impact and high intensity. Intensity in lifting is more important than variety.

With nutrition, you don’t have to eat right all the time… get it right MOST of the time and you’ll lose fat and get more fit. I eat a balance of healthy protein and carbs frequently throughout the day and I don’t eat at night… I give 10 to 12 hours between my last meal (dinner) and my first meal (breakfast) of the next day. Get all the essential vitamins and minerals everyday. If you are lifting weights for your workouts, take in extra protein. Don’t diet! Don’t over do it with exercise (4 hours a week is plenty if you do it in intense intervals).

It also helps to be a part of a healthy, supportive group like the teams that come together for our LIVE video workouts and workshops program, “BPLIVE”. You can find out more about the next session, and how you can get involved, at the following link: https://eatingright.com/products/billphillipslive

Focus your mind by having a long-term vision for your health and then set short and mid-term goals for your health and fitness. Your goals only have meaning and are only motivating if they are aligned with your long-term vision and values.

If you won’t get healthy for YOU, do it for your FAMILY.

And of course…

Once you get started, don’t stop! Keep Going Strong, even on days you are ‘too busy’ or ‘too tired.’ Forget perfect and focus on progress. NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER QUIT ON YOURSELF!

Health-for-LIFE is the direction things are going. Don’t miss out! ~Bill
