Publisher's Summary

The #1 New York Times best seller 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, best-selling 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 listeners to make the changes that will produce a lifetime of mental and physical fitness.

Critic Reviews

"Peeke's style, a mix of cheeky humor and not-so-gentle cajoling, as well as individual success stories, will likely motivate many readers to take the Peeke Challenge and become 'Peeke Performers'." (Publishers Weekly)

Body for Life for Women

I have read numerous health books for women and found many to be interesting and helpful. This one provides little, if any, new information. The tone of Dr. Peeke is annoying and almost demeaning. There are many other books on health and fitness that are much better and motivating than this one.

great listening

This is very informative and enjoyable to listen to. The only downside is that there is nothing that you can print to refence for all of her suggestions.

a must listen for women of all ages

great information and very motivational but she was kind of hard for me to listen to at times when she thought she was being light-hearted and humorous I thought she was bordering on being rude and mocking. example get off the couch " girlfriend " and move your behind! ugh:/

This Book Has Not Aged Well

Written in 2009 part of this book is a study of nutrition "science." So much of the eating rules have changed. This book is a snap shot of it's time. A much better book - very helpful - is "Younger Next Year for Women.'

Just the advice that I needed.

Between OA, DJD, neuropathy, and a few other health issues, this book offers the solution. I'm familiar with Body for Life, but I wondered if women shouldn't add in Yoga, Pilates to their resistance & cardio training. I've just plotted out my schedule for next week.
