I enjoyed this book, and have had to re-order it as my original copy was lost. (stolen?!) The information in this book is provided for the person who is into (or just getting into) health and fitness, and wants to make a change in their life to move toward more positive health. My personal trainer has reviewed the book and let me know that the information was sound.

Better than any "diet" program, this book will show you how to TRANSFORM your life to maintain optimum health for mind, body, and spirit. It's an off-shoot from the original body-for-life text, but has specific info just for women. That's part of what makes it so valuable! I would definitely recommend this book to any woman who has struggled with body issues; if you're willing to do the work it takes to be healthy, you can stop spending money on diet plans. Let this book be your guide. Its all you'll need!
The Body for Life for Women was very informative, so much so that I decided to purchase the hardcopy book and DVD because there was much I felt I needed to SEE on paper, especially related to diet and supplements. The CD gave me a better understanding of how my actions (& non-actions), in my early life and later, directly impact my increasing years. I was particularly interested in this being written to target women specifically, having already been impressed by the non-gender specific Body for Life book and journal. The author could have pursued her topic farther, however, despite my high rating. I am combining my Body for Life for Women with Julia Cameron's 12 week The Artist's Way book and program. I recommend anyone really serious about life changes, to purchase and keep The Artisit's Way and combine it with programs such as weight loss and exercise. The Morning Pages of The Artist's Way have profoundly changed my life and prepared me for more success in using any self-improvement program such as Body for Life for Women.
