If anyone here remembers Body for Life, you are my people. I own every book Bill Phillips ever published about the diet, including cookbooks, which is where I got this cheesecake.
While it doesn’t really taste like cheesecake, after the first slice, I was kind of hooked, and I had two slices already today, and it’s just 9:30am.
I did use real sugar instead of Splenda, and didn’t make his toppings. Also, not sure what he meant by “egg substitute”, I just used egg whites.
