I love people who are passionate about what they do, no matter what it is. If you’ve traveled state to state collecting and cataloging every rare beanie baby known to man, you rock. If you’ve maxed out every last one of your characters in Everquest while managing to hold down a job and a social life, I salute you. Based on all of that, clearly it should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: I heart Leigh Peele.
Body By Eats is my first experience with one of Leigh’s products, but her reputation of taking pride in and being great at what she does precedes her. If Leigh is going to do anything, she’s going to go all out, and with this being her baby you can tell that she really put her foot into making the Body By Eats system as good as it could be.
What I love most about Leigh is that she is all about the excuses. No, I don’t mean that she is going to take your excuses and let you get away with them – homie don’t play that! What I mean is that she knows the myriad of excuses that are out there, and instead of feeding into them she offers practical, easily implemented solutions. Do you want to read this book but just can’t find the time in your busy schedule to sit down and chop away at it? Sorry, but you’re not getting off the hook that easy, because Leigh was kind enough to include an audio version of the book in convenient mp3 format. Not only that, but you don’t have to put up with the lame, uninspired reading that most audio books provide you with, because the author herself reads it. Plus, if you’re not from the south, then you’re in for a real treat!
Leigh brings the ruckus from beginning to end, presenting you with alternative (yet objective) viewpoints to controversial topics such as organics, artificial sweeteners, vegetarianism, plastics, and the real reason why people are heavier than they’d like to be, and some experimental data to back it up. I’m not one for spoilers so I’ll leave it at that, but I’m confident that when you see what great lengths she went to in order to prove her point, you’ll be giving your computer the world’s best version of the “girl, you so crazy!” look.
“Yo Rog, I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Dr. Atkins wrote one of the best diet books of all time!”
And that’s one of the things I love most about this product: It’s not a diet book at all, but rather a show you how book. You aren’t restricted to a debilitating, inconvenient and restrictive style of eating, and Leigh gives you the how and why it doesn’t have to be that way ever.again. Not one to leave you hanging, Leigh also provides you with a quick start guide to get you moving in the direction of your goals, whether they are fat loss, muscle gain or maintenance. She also provides you with 50+ kick-anus recipes from the jump, even going as far as to include a recipe book for vegans and vegetarians into the package.
While the book is good, I certainly saved the best for last. As part of the upgraded package, you get access to the private Body By Eats community forum where Leigh herself posts, helping guide you through the book or answer any questions that you may have. Not only that, but you also get to join a group of well rounded, like minded individuals who are more than willing to support you as you strive to achieve your goals. I myself am a member of these forums, and in less than a month the forums are already bustling with members who are as happy giving support and advice as they are receiving it.
I honestly believe that this book provides you with a fantastic starting point, no matter where you are in your life, because it provides you with the tools you need to get started, the great tasting food to keep you motivated, and the supportive community to get you through the tough moments when your real life circle of friends just aren’t getting the job done.
But let me sweeten the pot for you.
I believe in this product so much that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is. If you purchase Body By Eats from the link here in this review, I’ll receive a small portion of the sale, and from there you have two choices:
1) I can donate that entire portion to a charity of your choice.
2) I can donate that entire portion back to your wallet.
Proof will be provided in all instances.
With that said, what the h-e double hockey sticks are you waiting for? It doesn’t get much better than this.
