Body By Design Book Review

Where do you all get your motivation to workout from? Are you motivated by others around you or are you internally motivated by just the need to “workout”? Are you an active member on fitness forums and can be motivated by reading and/or listening to others online in their fitness challenges?
Body by Design is based on real life stories of people who have changed their lives using this 12 week fitness formula. Personally, I did not really find any new information in here. It offers the standard weight training {dumbbell flyes, bench press, incline flyes, dips of 3 sets of 10-15} and low-fat diet nutrition plan {NO FAT at all offered in the diet.} It suggests you do light to moderate intensity cardio every single day….
If you are a person who can be motivated about reading others successes, then, check it out! It’s a 12 week program that could get a novice started on a weight training/nutrition program, however, knowing what I know from Crossfit/Zone and Paleo diets, this is not a program I would follow. We eat a lot of fat around here in the name of avocados, almonds, and coconut oil and I wouldn’t give that up. Also, the fact that 80% of my workouts are completed in 30 minutes or less and they are a combination of strength training and cardio so there’s no need to do extra cardio. Finally, I love that I am always challenged to learn new things, practice old things and it is never boring. 30 minutes on a machine everyday would have me hitting the snooze button way more often!
P.S. Body by Design was provided to me for purposes of review and this is my honest opinion.
