Is the 6 Week Body Makeover Right For You?

by Theresa on November 29, 2008 · 0 comments

The 6 Week Body Makeover plan is about eating more and exercising less! Can you believe this really works? This makeover plan is different. It takes into account such things as your blood type, specific metabolism level and body shape. They do this by using a method called Body Blueprinting.

In order for you to loose weight faster, you will eat specific foods that work best for your body metabolism and body type. It's all about reving up your metabolism by eating whole foods. You are shown how to eat only certain natural foods for your body type. You eat only a certain combination and portion sizes of food to burn more fat.   After 6 weeks you are shown additional foods which you can now add to your menu plan.

For inspiration, I wanted to include this video of JoLynn Braley who has used the Six Week Body Makeover. She shares her experiences in a really down to earth way. ( I hate all those flashy diet testimonials)

I originally thought that this "plan" was actually a diet. You know I can't stand that word diet... because my body instantly thinks in terms of "lack" of food. By the way, this 6 week plan is not a diet at all.

How you find a Six Week Body Makeover plan that suits you

Step 1. You determine your metabolism type by first filling out a questionnaire.
They then allow you to match your body size and shape to a specific eating and exercise plan.This is done by using “Blueprint Cards".

Step 2. You then can figure out your own Customized Eating Plan designed to reprogram your metabolism. You are then introduced to an 18-Minute Body Sculpting exercise program which is designed to target your problem areas.

Negative Comments from Consumers
I noticed that so many ladies were really excited to get their 6 week makeover plan in the mail.  Then looking at all the material, they realized how much work is involved. Naturally they were overwhelmed by the amount of information and returned it. The product advertising tells you words that gets you all excited. They use words such as “fast,” “easy” or “quick”, as well as “eat more and exercise less”. They don't tell you there is a lot of effort involved.

  • The general consensus seems to be that yes, you do need to commit to it and it does take a lot of work. It's not a quick weight loss plan.
  • Lots of paper work involved – Some thought it was complicated and way too time consuming.
  • You have to eat every 2 to 3 hours.
  • Cooking the menu foods are very time consuming especially if you have a busy lifestyle and family.
  • Some users thought that the food you make is way to complicated -No easy prepared frozen food here - you will be making everything from whole foods. For example a food snack suggestion is shrimp skewers! That's a lot of work for a snack!
  • One lady mentioned that it would be way easier if programs were already body type prepared before buying the body makeover plan. Their should have a body chart in the Home Shopping Network site to pick your body type and then order the appropriate kit. It would probably be cheaper and quicker.
  • Not user friendly and very restrictive.
  • It may not fit into your lifestyle.  One comment  I heard “This would work for someone without a family and who can live off of a very restrictive diet. It takes more planning and prep than I had expected and with 3 children and a husband, just does not fit into my life style. I am sure the weight can be lost, just takes a certain person/lifestyle".
  • It’s  a bit expensive if you compare it to similar weight loss systems. Its about $140.00 with shipping included. Users are upset that they pay so much yet only use part of the program for their specific body type.
  • One user said, “When I reviewed the [tags]6-week-body-makeover[/tags]program it was pretty basic and I felt I didn’t need to spend this kind of money for common sense. It is working, just too much information to sort through.”you are literally going to pay for a customized plan for yourself and 3 other body types that you cannot even use. Another user said…I truly think all the information could have been condensed into 20-30 pages.

This works if you do. / Shannon, MS
I am a believer. This works if you do. I am a rule kind of girl. Give me the rules, detail the plan and I can follow it. That is exactly what Michael Thurmond’’s 6-Week Body Makeover Kit does. He gave me the plan, I followed it and my body is made over. If you don”t like the taste of the food, season it. Herbs and pepper go along way.

Handy Tips and a Little Motivation!

  1. Cook, prepare and freeze all your food on Sunday then you’re all set for the week.
  2. Its all about reving up your metabolism and whole foods do that for you because it’s clean fuel.
  3. Once you start eating the whole foods you’ll see a huge difference in how you feel. You’ll be able to focus more.
  4. Once you get the hang if it, it’s not like you have to do any complicated diet tricks. It’s just a lifestyle plan that teaches you how to eat sensibly.
  5. Once you get into that mindset nothing can really stop you. You too can get in a healthy, weight-loss, successful mindset.
  6. Part of all of us wants to rebel and stay in our comfort zone.
  7. You need to figure out what is it in you that is holding you back. Why is part of you setting up to sabotage yourself.
  8. You are able to find many “mock” recipes on the website which are plan friendly. Be sure to read all the materials, and then you will notice that after the 6 weeks you can begin to add in foods that were once restricted to you.

The 6 Week Body Makeover users have been getting some great results with their weight loss. It does take some determination though...Many others could not make it through all the challenges involved. I do love the idea that it teaches you how to eat healthy and make meals from scratch. This will become a habit. When you start feeling good the healthy habits will stick.  It's great that there is a forum and helpful community as well. The biggest concern were the time and expense needed to do the makeover plan. Hope this reviews helps you! Please feel free to share your experience with this plan. I'd love to hear from you!
