Adjusting the Program to Help You Lose Weight

I received some e-mails from people that like the diet and feel that it is extremely doable, but they feel they can't do the workout program because they are really overweight. So I wanted to take some time and clear up a few things about the workouts. First of all, I used a lighter weight then what I'm capable of doing in the videos, so as to demonstrate the exercises easily and move through the workout quickly. I wanted to make the videos short and to the point. So don't be discouraged if you don't move as fast or as easily through the workouts. Remember, you are only competing against yourself . If you're a beginner, you will get a workout pretty much just by learning and trying the exercise routine and you will still burn calories and lose weight.

If you're a beginner, you can also add more active rest days between workouts. You will still get the benefits, but you're muscles will get a little extra time to recover.

If for whatever reason you have to miss a day, don't give up, just pick up the program where you left off.

Remember this is a jump start weight loss program that is meant to motivate you long term, through short term weight loss success. Adjust the program to meet your short term goals, maybe that's 14 days or 20 days.

So go ahead and get started, and feel free to comment and ask questions. Tomorrow is Thursday Q and A. I will pick weight loss and fitness a questions and answer them the best I can for you.
