  • Well rounded approach to weight loss, combining elements of diet and exercise.
  • Free articles provided by the fitness author for perusal
  • A forum for readers to share their experiences and encourage one another
  • Disadvantages

  • Information is not provided in a condensed manner. There is a lot of reading to be done on the website in addition to the books that explain the diets and exercise.
  • Books must be purchased separately, averaging $39.95 a piece. There are currently seven books for sale, covering different aspects of his methodology.
  • Much of the site is educational versus instructional. Some people don’t have the time to learn of all the scientific processes behind carbohydrates or the breaking down of fats; they just want to know what steps to take. The research reviews are academic and difficult to read for the layperson.
  • The link to supplement providers does not divulge what supplements he recommends you take or in what quantities.
  • Conclusion

    The Body Recomposition website is a comprehensive online nutrition and exercise advice forum authored by Lyle McDonald. It is updated twice weekly and contains relevant information of fat loss. Simple weight loss is not addressed as the science behind fat loss is heavily examined in multiple articles and academic research reviews. This site is very clinical and academic in tone and may not appeal to the average Joe who is looking for a condensed and user-friendly “how to” to simple weight loss. Books must be purchased separately.
