Michael Thurmond’s Six Week Body Makeover claims you will lose up to 30 pounds and makeover your entire body in six weeks…
How will you accomplish this? Well, first you take a metabolism quiz, find out your body type, and then follow a meal plan designed for your body type. Also included are various support materials…
|By eating right for your type and only working out 15-18 minutes 2 times a week, you will lose up to 30 pounds in six weeks…
Somehow it is eating “wrong” for your type that is the source of all of your weight loss problems.
|The research in support of losing weight based on eating for your, “food type” is less than solid.
Even more important, the idea that you can only workout two times a week for only 15-18 minutes and lose this amount of weight simply defies all logic.
The Six Week Body Makeover Eating Plan…
The fact that you have an eating plan and recipes is great. However, although there are schools of thought that say different body types metabolize food differently, it is most likely the reason for anyone’s success on the program is based the fact that his plans for all types involve eating less calories than your taking in.
On a positive note, lots of diet plans do not come with recipes, so this is a nice detail. And eating right for your type might make you feel better and allow you to stick to a plan a little easier.
The Real Problem: The Workout Claims…
-He claims that because the workouts are "targeted" that just 15-18 minutes, twice a week, is all it takes to begin to reshape all your problems areas.
By doing only those body sculpting exercises that are right for you, you can stop killing yourself in the gym, start working out less, and get the results that you desire.
Grrr. I smell a cat…er, a rat.
I am sorry to be the one to tell you this, but if you are thirty pounds overweight and you want to get in shape, working out for 15 minutes twice a week will not get you to where you want to go. Not in six weeks. Not in sixteen.
So What Can You Do to Lose Weight Fast?
You must workout thirty minutes per day, minimum, and you must add cardio to your daily ‘diet’ of exercise. Weight training is both great and necessary, but it will not do it all. If you are overweight, you must get moving-any cardiovascular exercise will do the trick, at first. I suggest you save your money and invest in a good pair of running shoes and some hand weights. But either way, eating healthy and working out are the only ways to get that better body in six weeks.
