Hi everyone-

My best friend and his SO just started Body for Life. I've read the book once before, and have a friend who tried it in the past, so I thought I knew a little about this plan.

What I didn't realize -- must have forgotten this -- is that you get a "free day" to eat whatever you want. This apparently includes cookies, cakes, ice cream, pizza pie, anything.

I don't want a "free day" myself since I am doing this by counting calories and exercising. But I'm curious. What's the logic behind this? How could a "free day" somehow help you lose weight? I don't undertand how it would work. Calories are calories, right?

Purely speculation, but I think it is to satisfy psychological dimensions. It's the same as saying that no food is forbidden in moderation. They may be counting on your good habits to keep the free day from being insane. But it sounds like it would also be like a "planned indulgence". Like when you allow yourself ice cream on Saturdays so that when you want ice cream on Mon-Fri, you say to yourself, "No, I can wait until Saturday."

According to the body for life website, they say it's to convince your body that it's not starving, so it knows that it's okay to lose weight (how's that for a non-technical rephrase of a non-technical article?).

I understand that BFL includes significant exercise, including building your muscles. These efforts should make the diet less important, since muscles burn more calories than fat when resting, and much more when working out. I've certainly found it to be true for myself, now that I'm working out a lot, I can cheat more on my diet and still not notice it in my weight (a bad thing for me, psychologically, since I like the deterrence factor of knowing I CAN'T cheat without gaining weight).

I'm sure the psychological factor Molly mentioned is also important. It reminds me of a diet I heard about one time. Eat as much as you want of whatever you want. The idea was that after a week or two of eating nothing but chocolate, your body would crave nutritious food. Plus, allowing yourself to eat it removes all of the baggage about it being "forbidden". I was so tempted to try it, because I know that when I have sweets, I always overdo it, in part because of the guilt. However, I don't think I'd ever get tired of overdoing it. Besides, there have been times in my life when I was exercising enough that I should've lost weight (I wasn't more than chubby at the time), so I compensated by eating WAY too much chocolate, and maintaining my chubbiness. Interesting idea though.

I was really dumbfounded to hear my dieting friends were eating eclairs and pizza. Your ideas make sense. And now I won't worry about my friends.

I may start craving nutritious foods, but that won't stop the sugar!

Oh yeah!! That's why I'm not on that eating program! I was just thinking back to when I was 8 and I would visit my dad's made-from-scratch bakery. There would be a big tub of about 150# of frosting. If I were on a diet where I could eat anything I want, I would've been standing there with a spoon. I know all about the sugar beast :)

P.S. Linda, I'll try out the interval training while walking my dog tonight.

Well, frosting discussions aside. . .

Yes, the Body for Life "free day" is based on the 1) psychological aspect that nothing is absolutely forbidden, and 2) the physiological aspect that one day of overeating will convince your body that it's not starving to death. If the body thinks it's starving, it will hold on to all the fat it can in order to survive the "famine."

Speaking from personal experience (last week, my first as a BFLer), I rather enjoyed the free day, yet I was extremely surprised by how much I wasn't able to eat. I had planned a big lunch, big dinner, etc., but just wansn't able to pack it in as per usual. Guess the whole theory about your stomach shrinking with less food in it may actually be true? Or maybe it was just "well, I can have this next week, too" which prevented any particular need for more.

Excuse me for interrupting your frosting orgy. I like frosting, but it has to be good, and preferably on a fairly decent cake. Most frosting, nearly all, is just sugar, too much sugar, nothing good about it. And most cake has no redeeming social significance.

Carrot cake is one of the best, it always has a nice flavor and good texture, and usually has an excellent frosting. Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting is hard to do wrong.

I don't bother tasting white, yellow, or red cake because they are never worth tasting. And if they are store bought, that means they are made with that dreadful frosting that tastes like sweet soap.

You can't just freak out on generic frosting, it has to be GOOD, and you don't get that very often.

I don't want a "free day" myself since I am doing this by counting calories and exercising. But I'm curious. What's the logic behind this? How could a "free day" somehow help you lose weight? I don't undertand how it would work. Calories are calories, right?

Well, let's see. How should I explain this? No. I think that explains it very clearly.

Here's an experiment you can do at home. Get two cute little animals, hamsters or something. Give them both all the water they care to drink. Feed one whole wheat bread, and give the other an equal amount of white bread. I said to get "cute" animals so you would get very concerned when one of them is not cute any more, a week or two later, and stop the experiment. Which one do you think will get sick? They both had the same calories, so what makes the difference?

Your body needs about forty different nutrients to survive. Some of these register as calories, but they each have different functions to perform. If you don't eat enough of a nutrient it can have dramatic effects on your life and might make you desire to eat strange things.

Several of those nutrients are oils. Oil, or any kind of fat, slows digestion. If you don't eat enough oil your body will absorb whatever food it gets right away and you will feel very hungry again. If you eat enough oil or fat for breakfast digestion is slowed and you feel much more alert all day, with no hunger. So fat can actually be an ally in your war against fat.

If you don't eat enough protein you get a craving for sugar. Oddly, when this happens the thought of eating protein foods has no appeal to you: you only want sweets.

After a week of eating a decent diet you won't really want the sort of junk you used to eat. The BFL diet simply takes the pressure off by restricting nothing. Nothing is forbidden, so there is nothing to fixate on. If you still crave (whatever), you can have it, but you have to wait for your free day. Be good for six days, then reward yourself with anything you want -- except the longer you follow the diet, the less you want to pig out. You might say the diet grows on you.

I did not know this! I've been craving sweets for no particular reason. I've also been giving into them too much :( I knew I wasn't really eating enough protein recently, but never connected that to my desire for sweets. Thanks!

"Let's Eat Right To Keep Fit" by Adele Davis. This book was published about 1957 and is still available on the racks at grocery stores. It is the best introduction to the field of nutrition. She wrote several other books too.

BTW, 1-2 tbsp of bran daily also helps in many ways. I always have bran in the house. I mix it with juice to get it in. Bran reduces food absorption by about 10% and sweeps loose bits of food through the pipes so they don't cause trouble. It also reduces "spider"veins in the legs, although nobody has any idea why.

<"Let's Eat Right To Keep Fit" by Adele Davis>

I remember many years ago a friend had recommended that I read this book. Not long after that I heard that Adele Davis had died from cancer, I can't remember exactly what type. And I thought to myself, all those years of proper eating and what good did it do for her. Now that I've gotten older I've since revised my thinking. Although genes play a very big role, good nutrition will always help.

Do you mean like 100% bran cereal? (The twig looking things, not the flakes?) If not, what are you talking about??? I love bran cereal, and I try to get enough fiber in other ways, too. If there is something simple I am missing, please let me know.

Yeah, that's it. And whole wheat bread. I use unprocessed bran, which is often in the grocery store next to the cereals, and sometimes sold in bulk for about $0.19 a pound. You can also get it at health food stores.

I use plain bran because it's so much cheaper than the cereal, and because I don't keep careful track of what I have eaten. Last summer I apparently went several weeks without eating any bread or veggies, and ended up in the ER with a severe belly ache. After $2000 of tests, the doc told me I had diverticulitis and to eat more veggies! Yessiree, I keep bran in the house all the time now. And WW bread too.

Wallster,

Thanks for your reply.

I used to eat the bran cereal every day. Then I discoverd Kashi. Their cereal is also very high in fiber. And I do eat whole wheat bread, too. I eat a "lite" bread that is higher in fiber (5 grams per 2 slices) than most of those heavy whole grain breads that sometimes have just 1 gram per slice.

Also, you mentioned pasta earlier. Have you tried any of the whole wheat pastas? Some are very good. I do still eat white pasta, but I treat myself to the WW stuff when I can.

I've heard of that but never seen any. Of course, pasta is not one of the things I go looking for.

Do you mean like 100% bran cereal? (The twig looking things, not the flakes?) If
not, what are you talking about??? I love bran cereal, and I try to get enough fiber
in other ways, too. If there is something simple I am missing, please let me know.


The Nutritionist at the local hospital came on "Health Day" to my workplace and gave us a talk about fiber. The latest, newest form of fiber is flax. Grind the seed up in a coffee grinder and add it to your foods. It is full of Omega 3 which we are suppose to all get lots of too!

I may have to go this route for the Omega-3 benefits. I got some flax seed oil, but I'm not very good at using it. This also has the fiber benefit.
