I bought this kit from the manufacturer based on the infomercial [yes, I know better. I guess I deserved to lose my money! :) ].

The kit came in 9 days after I ordered it [the promised "express shipping" does not mean it ships fast, it means they will mail it ground mail within 2 days and it will take another 5-7 business days to arrive].

First, the part that is good - the exercise ["body sculpting"] information is great. They make a big deal out of how it "customizes" your workout routine, but really not so much - you pick out your "body shape" [from 6 "body types"] and do the exercises for that shape. But the exercises are good - they are explained well, and the theory behind how he instructs you to work out is explained well.

However, if you buy the kit based on the infomercial promise that you will only be working out for 20 minutes 2 or 3 times a week, you are going to be disappointed. This method does require that you do your "body sculpting exercises" for 20 minutes 2-3 days a week, but what they don't tell you is that you ALSO have to do 45 minutes - 1 hour of cardio almost every day. So, you are really working out for several hours a week. [I love working out, and I love my cardio, so that wasn't an issue for me; but if I had bought the program based on their advertising it as "working out only 20 minutes 2-3 times a week" I'd be really angry.]

The part of the plan that I think is horrible though is the diet part. The infomercial just plain *lies* when it says "once you are eating right for your body type, you can eat as much as you want". The eating plan is EXTREMELY limited and extremely monotonous.

I suppose this plan isn't for everyone. It is not a "fad" diet. They do want you to make a lifestyle change. But hey, it was my lifestyle that added to my weight in the first place! I did this program shortly after my youngest son was born almost 3 years ago and lost 50 pounds and went from a size 16/18 to a size 8 and have kept it off (without doing regular cardio or toning other than normal playing with my kids).

I have seen the reviews on here that say that the diet is restrictive. It is not. He does give you correct portion sizes to use and you are not supposed to eat dairy until you are on the living lean portion of the program. BUT, if you go on to the forums, you can see hundreds of recipes to use on the program for variety to make a "mock-up" of all your favorite dishes. So if you think eating healthy is restrictive, then yeah, I guess this is restrictive.

The first week was hard. You are asked to drink 100 oz of water a day and cut out all fat and salt. My body went on a bit of a withdrawal for 2-3 days as it cleansed out all the gross stuff. But I actually felt stuffed much of the time. My husband would look at me and say, "you're eating AGAIN" because I just ate a huge meal 2 hours earlier. Yes, I said a huge meal. Of course it is not a huge meal of junk food. I would eat my 2-4 oz of protein, my potato and my cup of veggies...and then have a giant bowl of salad. I always eat more than my husband--and he's gained 40 pounds since I first started this plan :-D--he's always had a high metabolism so he thinks he can eat whatever he wants.

I see a number of complaints contained within the reviews about how restrictive this diet is, but I must disagree with this assessment.

Before I went on this diet I tried a real fad diet that restricted my caloric intake to 500 calories per day. I lasted 19 days on that diet, and the last 7 I didn't even lose any weight despite incorporating a workout routine to help speed things up. So I switched over to the Six Week Body Makeover Diet and was able to eat FAR more than the previous diet allowed and immediately began losing weight.

The Six Week Body Makeover Diet is simply smarter. The kit contains a great deal of helpful information that details WHY this diet is so effective. One reviewer asserts that the 6WBM claim that you can eat almost unlimited amounts of food is "nuts" and false. Actually, you CAN eat almost unlimited amounts of SOME foods, such as lettuce and onions. Believe me, when you've been on a 500 calorie per day diet, a huge bowl full of salad greens is a blessing.

Also, while that same reviewer stated she was allowed 2 oz of protein at meals, mine allows me 3 oz. You're only allowed 2 IF you are eating carbs like a half cup of rice or potatoes with your meal. Keep in mind, too, that as you workout daily your metabolism speeds up, allowing you to increase SLIGHTLY your protein intake. I don't do their Body Sculpting Workout. Instead, I just do an hour on my stationary bike, keeping a brisk pace and my heart in the right target zone, and about 10 minutes of stomach exercises. Again, when you start out you should do this about 5 to 6 days per week, but when you near your target weight you can take that workout down to 4 days per week.
