Training for the morbidly obese....

Just wondering if the guys at T-mag still intend to produce a program specially tailored to the morbidly obese, and if so when it will likely be coming out.

It?s a program that strikes me, though nowhere near morbidly obese, as a fascinating read, and I?ve been looking forward to it ever since it was suggested. There are also a few people who I?d like to give it to :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance.

I’m thinking that morbidly obese people can benefit from doing a simple body-for-life program. Even better, I think would be Allesi’s book Lose Fat Forever. After Don sent me a free copy, I sat down and read it, and all I have to say is that the author outlines everything the person should eat and train for 125 days. I feel this is perfect for the morbidly obese person who doesn’t know what to eat and can’t handle high intensity cardio etc. I am seriously considering putting my dad on this program, but he’s only got about 30 fat pounds to lose.

I agree, BFL would be fine for them.
I was 325 and about 45% BF and did it (for 18 months) and now I’m 215 and 10%
