Who is Bill Phillips?  He is the author of the bestselling book Body for Life.  From this success comes a lifestyle-based diet philosophy “Eating for Life.”  Its foundation is to shift the mindset of people who are going through some kind of a diet program who stay away from food.  
Eating for Life holds the conviction that one should not do away with what is necessary.  Food is very important in the corporeal aspect of a person.  Instead of looking at food like a mighty foe or running away from it like some contagious virus, food must be treated as a friend.
