The activity scale
Before you get moving and begin exercising for the Best Life Diet, determine your activity level. If you are new to a fitness routine, Bob encourages you to try going up a level or two after checking with your physician.

As you familiarize yourself with the Best Life Diet and your activities start getting easier, challenge yourself by going up a level. Reach your goals!
