Strength training increases gradually from 6 to 10 exercises every three days.

If you worked 40 hours per week (40 hours X 4 weeks 160 hours), you’d have 320 hours left. However, as will be shown, working 40 hours per week is optional, but certainly not optimal. And definitely not necessary. If you’re not acting differently, you’re not actually learning, and thus not changing. Your behavior is what shapes circumstance, confidence, personality, and relationships. You absolutely can start living this way now. Once you do, you’ll stop putting up with petty stuff.

I am a middle aged, out of shape man (I bought this book and wrote this review on my wife's account as I do not have one) looking for a simple routine to get back into shape. While this book does, in fact, provide alot of information and basic excersize routines that has and will continue to help many like myself, I found the excersize information to be rudimentary and non informative to someone like myself that has some past experience with weight training, and I also found the diet info to be somewhat dated. Darden recommends a low calorie / high carbohydrate diet which does work but is much more difficult to adhere to than lower carb diets. I really don't want to be overly critical of this program as it has helped many people, and if it works for you then kudos. But if you have any experience with weight training and nutrition, and some basic common sense, you can easily do everything contained in this book without the book. Bottom line: change your diet in order to lose weight, and pick 7 - 10 weight training excersizes that focus on each main part of your body to create a 30 minute (or so) workout 3 times per week. If you stick to it for more than 6 - 8 weeks, begin to make your workouts slightly more complex. If you stick to that and want to advance you will probably need more information than this book provides in order to advance to higher levels of strength training. But, it is a great book for absolute beginners.

Months ago, a close friend, who had recently put on some muscle and lost a bit of weight, after hearing Ellington Darden speak at a business seminar, gave me a copy of Ellington Darden's Living Longer Stronger. I read the book and put it aside. A few weeks later, I talked with a favorite university professor who had always been plagued with weight problems, and the subject came up again. He mentioned the success he had using Darden's program.
Over the years, I tried lots of popular diets, aerobic exercises, and strength training in various combinations and taken to various extremes. They all worked to one degree or another, sometimes for only a while, but ultimately fatigue and a back injury from overdoing them had left me resigned to being grossly out of shape. A trip to the emergency room and surgery shook me up and I decided, once again, to shape up.
I hoped Darden's program, which claimed it was possible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, would work for me. I was skeptical, but desperate to try. I did have the assurance that both a scientific friend and a former college professor found this program truly helpful.
The program in Living Longer Stronger relies on moderation of all things, except drinking icy cold water: a gallon and a half a day. Calorie intake is reduced over six weeks, gradually but never drops below 1300 per day to prevent the body from conserving fat. Strength training increases gradually from 6 to 10 exercises every three days. Darden explains that two days of rest in between is necessary for muscles to go beyond recovery and increase in strength. He also recommends getting at least 7 hours of sleep a night.
I just completed six weeks of the Living Longer Stronger program, and will begin the cycle of calorie cutting again in a week or two. I followed Darden's nutrition guidelines, but ignored the specific foods listed in his meal plans. (I like cooking and couldn't bring myself to eat canned potatoes, bottled low-cal salad dressing, margarine or Sarah Lee's so-called bagels, but that wouldn't be a problem for a lot of guys.) I walked for half an hour after dinner, when I could. I trained on a friend's Bowflex every three days without exception. I drank ice water all day. A new body fat sensing electronic scale - a tool that wasn't available when Darden wrote this book-- made it easy to chart fat loss. In six weeks, I lost 45 pounds of fat, and put on 5 pounds of muscle. My waste is 5 inches smaller. I can even see some muscle definition on my shoulders. There are no stretch marks anywhere. After a week or two continuing to training and to drink lots and lots of ice water, I will ready to do another six week cycle of stress free weight loss.
The program is written for men over 40, but the book features at least one example of a man in his 20s who used the program with great success.

I’m almost 50 years old. Lost 18 of 22 lbs in the past 9 weeks. Lost about 15 inches. Noticing strength gains. Clothes fit better. Easiest diet I’ve ever done. Looking forward to the maintenance phase. Thank you Dr. Darden.

I applied about half the principles in the book (I didn't follow the eating/drinking water guidelines exactly, but I did do the exercising as described). I reduced my caloric intake, but not as much as he prescribes.

Basically, over the course of a year and half I went from 193 lbs. to 150 lbs. I am 5'7", and that was really noticeable. I would guess that I put on 7 or 8 lbs. of muscle during that time, so that's 50 lbs. of fat lost. I never thought when I started that I would have those kind of results.

I applied his principles not just over a 6 week period, but more or less made a lifestyle change. It's now been almost 2 years since I started his program, and I'm motivated to lose the last bit of fat off my body and pack on some serious muscle (buying another Darden book for that -- HIT training).

I was recommended this book by a friend who I watched follow the program to the letter and lose 50 lbs. in 6 months. I am here to tell you that if you have the discipline, you can absolutely do it. The best part is, after you read this book and learn the principles, you'll laugh at infomercials for ab machines and diet pills. There is no free lunch in serious (healthy) weight loss, but if you're willing to pay for it (unwavering determination), you can get there, no doubt.

Highly recommended. I bought one for my friend.
