Michael Thurmond is the man behind the 6 Week Body Makeover. The program can be found online at mybodymakeover.com. This approach takes into account each individual’s metabolism and body type. The six week program is divided into three steps, each promising to deliver the weight loss results and the body makeover you want, guaranteed. The claims are a bit far fetched, but nonetheless worth looking at.

List of Ingredients

None.

Product Features

Step One: This step is where you figure out your individual blueprint. The questonnaire helps you figure out how your body responds to food to provide clues to your metaoblic type. The questionnaire also helps you figure out the kinds of exercise you need to keep you from exercising the wrong way. Michael Thurmond claims that by exercising only the problem areas of your body, you only need to exercise around 30 minutes per week and you can ignore the rest. You’ll have a specific exercise routine to “reshape each and every one of the problem areas of your body.”< /p>

Step Two:This step consists of developing a customized makeover plan based on the results of the blueprint. Here is where you will figure out the meal plan and the short exercises that you need for your specific metabolic type and problem areas that you need to incorporate into your daily life.

Step Three: All you have to do is start living by what the customized makeover plan directs you to do. Understanding your body type, the foods you can eat, and the exercises you need to do are the key. There is an order form on the mybodymakeover.com website that includes a Quickstart Plan, a Customized Eating Plan, an 18 minute body sculpting program customized just for you, custom meal recipes, and a lean living program used as a reference.

Advantages

  • The program promotes diet and exercise.
  • The program does not promote crash diets and quick results.

Disadvantages

  • There are some very unhappy customers who speak against them in a blog.
  • The program is expensive for many people at $119.94 from the website.
  • The fitness routines promoted seems to go against fitness common sense.

Conclusion

Michael Thurmond’s 6 Week Body Makeover program is highly desirable on the surface. The fact is that the proper foods need to be eaten, and the proper amount of exercise needs to be done each week, consistently in order to see weight loss and body shaping results. These habits must be adapted as part of a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent the weight from coming back. The claim that you only need to exercise 30 minutes a week to maintain proper health and weight loss is just completely contradictory to everything we learn about the body.

If you want to diet and lose weight, be sure to do so using a healthy, balanced diet, increased water intake, and a full body workout. Look for a proven weight loss supplement to add to your regimen that addresses both fat burning and appetite suppression.

    Can you have protein shakes on this diet instead of meat?

    This does work and it’s not a fad diet because it teaches you to stay away from packaged foods and eat only fresh fruits and vegetables, complex carbs and lean meat in smaller portions. I lost 28 lbs this time around. For the people complaining about the cost, I never paid more than the cost of the book – around $12. He has a 12 day makeover book and a 6 day makeover book. This is all you need. I will admit that it is difficult eating the in between meals at work but it’s necessary to stay full. If you are interested in eating healthy and losing weight this is a good plan for you.

    tried it. I lost 28 pounds but it took longer than they promised. It was difficult in that I had to be eating so often at work. Then I hit a peak and just wouldn’t lose anymore. I tried their online assistance and that didn’t work. All in all it tought me how to prepare meals and live healthy I have gained back the weight however and plan to start back but this time I’m going to do a lot more excersize with the plan. I thought the plan was limited in terms of food selection but I guess that’s what a diet is.

    The only warning I have about this diet is that for some people to eliminate fats as thorough as suggested can cause gallbladder failure. I went on one similar to this and when I went back to a less stringent diet, my gallbladder couldn’t handle the fat and failed.

    I like the program because I’m diabetic and I have reduced the amount of meds I have to take. To me it’s a way of life and it works for me. You just have to find what works for your body. During it I have to tweak a few things. I’m more interested in keeping my sugar levels down and the weight lose is an added bonus!

    Michael Thurmond’s 6 wk Body Makeover is great. The price of $119 is pennies compared to the cost you will pay for your doc visits and remaining unhealthy. THIS PLAN WORKS! It is not a diet. It is a lifestyle. It takes you from unhealthy to healthy.

    I ordered the program Micheal Thurmond. Back at the end ofd March it took almost 6 weeks to get the package here. I finally all, tried to reach aomeone at cusatomer service to ask questions, it took them 3 days to answer me. By the way, they left a message with no answers to my questions. Finally prior to the cancelation time frame I sent the entire package back, and requested a full refund, due to complication direction, no live real-time support. AND NOW I am STILL BEING CHARGED twice a month for a product I canceled within the terms and conditions. No one will answer my emails or return my calls. DO NOT BUY THIS PLAN

    I just started the makeover today. I can already feel that I have more energy and am feeling healthier. The only problem I am having is that no matter what i use for spices I am literally choking the food down because of the lack of flavor. I know its supposed to be bland but is there any way I can make it more tolorable to swallow? Maybe recepies or tips?

    I have just started the six week body make over for the 2nd time So Far I have lost 8 lds. I started it in 2007 when my husband left for Iraq and lost 34 pound but since then have went back to my old habits. I am trying a new aproch this time, I crave sugar and salt, I can do slenda just fine but salt is hard for me some times. Need to learn how to work with my spices so I dont get burned out. I am on the Eating plan B so I feel i have a good varity of things to eat. This works you just have to be crative on how you spice it up.

    [Reply]

    Anonymous

    I, too, got bored with egg whites, so I substituted a lean meat (from previous night’s dinner) for the protein I would get from the egg whites. I lost 15 pounds in the first six weeks. I then started walking 5 miles/day. Everyone noticed the differences..my face cleared up and looked younger, my hair grew longer, my nails grew, and, of course, I was trimmer. I stopped due to family tragedy and now am about to get back to this program. I really missed how much better I felt and looked! MR. THURMAN…you are a genious!

    I am on this diet now. I can’t believe how good I feel – getting all the salt and processed yuk out of my system. I was always feeling sluggish and tired and I feel great. It teaches you to watch what you are putting in your body. We use to be fast food junkies and not anymore. You do have to be disiplined to do this. It works.

    yes; of course. There is so much variety to choose from. Plus it depends on your body type. Some body types have to eat more protein. This plan is accommodating.

    I am just wondering how successful this is. I am hoping that the comments posted are from “real” people, not people on the Michael Thurmond payroll, who have tried this. I am leaning toward getting it, but I have been a victim to other weight loss scams like the Acai Berry Pill but I am also a success story for Weight Watchers and have kept most of that weight off. Due to stressful events in my life lately my weight is on the upswing. I have never given anything time to get to my TRUE goal weight and I just want to know if this is the best investment for my hard earned money.

    my 2 colleagues are on it and one has lost 17lbs in 7 weeks and the other started 1 week ago and has lost 4lbs. The one with 17lbs has her husband doing it as well and he has lost 25lbs. But they are very, very disciplined about this diet!

    Wow! Great advice from Linda. The secret is to be organized and plan to succeed. Avoiding grains and dairy help also.
    Don’t skip the 30 minute walk either, it revs up your system and raises Endorphins, Seratonins, and keeps you burning fat longer.

    Michael Thurmond shares so many secrets about weight loss, just in the first few moments of reading his program. If you keep your metabolism up by eating the small meals he recommends, you will lose weight. You learn to eat to live (instead of vice versa) and you eat knowing it’s simply energy for your body. The cravings for the sweets and salt goes away within the first few days and you feel so much better, that you don’t even want it! Try it, stick to it and you will be glad you did!

    I am wondering if I will have time to do this. I get up at 5:00 AM every morning, leave the house around 6:30 AM to arrive at work @ 8:30 AM. Have 30 minute lunch break, finally get home at 7:00 PM. I don’t think it would have enough time to exercise that long and time for food preparation. I have to go to bed no later than 9:30 PM, otherwise I cannot get up in the morning. Is that program for me? I am on Jenny Craig and have lost 30 lbs so far.

    I bought boneless, skinless chicken breasts at Costco in the bulk package. Baked them in the oven in a turkey roasting pan. Let them cool in the refrig. Cut them into 1″ or so cubes. Got some cheap (not self-closing) sandwich bags at Smart & Final (1,000). I weighed 2oz of chicken and put them into a baggie and sealed it w/ my my seal-a-meal. I stacked them up in a plastic shoebox in my freezer. Packaged my food the nite before into (5) small containers w/salad or veggies on the bottom & chicken on top w/ a frozen lemon cube for dressing. (I freeze lemon juice into ice cubes & keep them in a zip lock bag in the freezer)
    Everywhere I go, I have my cooler w/ me & take a couple of minutes to eat when it’s time. I schedule my eating time (like you would for a baby!). I have (3) one quart GLASS bottles that I drink eveyday. I fill them up the nite before to have them ready to go. I have a little carrying case with a handle to carry them to and from the car. It’s about taking care of yourself & babying yourself to health & well-being. It becomes a very GOOD HABIT. As for the body make-over part, I didn’t do that. Only had time for the 30 minute walk & proper eating. As I mentioned before, I did the RAPID LOSS 1 week plan & lost 9.75 lbs. He says you can lose 12 lbs. But I cheated a couple of times and ate desserts. Not a small amount of weight to lose in a week. Not healthy to do on a regular basis, but the normal amount is about 5 lbs. per week. Still higher than an M.D. would recommend. But, is being overweight healthy? If you see fast results, you’re more inclined to stick with it. I wish you much success! Linda

    Excellent comment. I am with you. I am 62 yrs old and I have seen a great weight lost of 9 lbs. in the first 4 days. of course I know its water weight but just to see weight off is exciting to me. I do almost all that you do. Thanks for your comment because now I will tweak my plan.

    Karen – best advice I can give is to prepare everything for the week on Sunday. It will take a few hours but save you a ton of time during the week. I have a similar schedule and this has worked the best for me and my family. Plus, you will get extra energy from fitting in even a 20 min workout a few times a week.

    Karen I have a similar schedule and am a single Mother of a 7 year old. I ordered my 6 wbmo 5/2/11 and started 5/23/11…today is day one of week 6:) I’ve lost 32 pounds!!!!!!!!! I’ve struggled all my life with finding a plan that works for me and THIS DOES. I’m not doing the 18 minute custumized work out, instead, I’m doing Zumba 4 nights a week. Anyone interested should really give this plan a try. I have about 4 pounds to go but am CONFIDENT that I won’t have any problems.

    I have been on the program for 4 weeks now and have lost 20 pounds so far. Cooking your protein ahead of time is the key…you need to have your food prepared so you’re not tempted to go off track. I have a lot more to lose but plan on continuing until I reach my goal.

    I ordered the product a week before I went on my cruise. When I came back I didn’t start it right away. I weighed 450 lbs and 6 oz when I went to the doctor two weeks ago. I decided to start the plan this past Monday but I have not started the exercise portion of it. I went to the Dr’s today and I have lost 12 lbs. I am very excited and will move forward with the program. The only problem that I have is I need more flavor to my food so I will be researching to find alternatives to fats and salts.

    [Reply]

    ME

    Nic,

    You can use Chili Powder, oregano, minced garlic, parsley, dill, cayenne pepper, black/white pepper, red pepper flakes. Any combination of these spices can be used and you will never know that there is no salt in it. I had bought this product about 8 years ago and did it for a short while since I was too busy to stick to it and I came across the box in the attic and I decided to start it again. I prefer to lose weight slowly so that I will not end up gaining it back quickly. After about a month I have lost about 10 pounds, several inches and excess water weight. I have to admit that I have not done much exercise but I am pretty content with the results. Yes we are human and we will cheat once in a while but the good thing about this program is that you can start up again and keep going. Good luck to everyone who is doing this program. It seems hard but it’s not. If you have faith in yourself you can do it.

    You can buy this book used on amazon or probably at a bookstore. It will outline the whole plan and tell you how to figure out what to do. You don’t need to buy expensive food to do this. I did it on my own a few years ago and plan to do it again. I am now on a meal replacement plan thru a hospital and it is way too expensive for me to continue for much longer. Try finding the book and doing it yourself rather than trying to buy the whole program. Just be sure to exercise and keep portions small.

    I just started it this week. You blueprint out your body by answering specific questions about your eating habits and other things. You then take cards with different body shapes until you find the one that looks like you, after that you customize your eating for your body type. Im a A type and i mainly get protein a small amount of carb and fruit and veggies. No bread, milk or sugar products. I would suggest, put about 4 or 5 chicken breasts in a crock pot and cook up alot of chicken and other low fat proteins ahead for the week, and have a scale to weigh out the portions. I lost 3lbs this morning, going to see how it goes. Hope this helps someone.

    This program is amazing – if you follow it. You have to be dedicated at it. There is cooking, there is planning, there is exercise – there is a lifestyle change that you have to make. Everytime I see someone diss this program I get so angry. How can eating healthy and exercising be wrong. Those that complain about it didn’t do it right and didn’t bother to email the helpline for assistance. Don’t blame this program – look inside yourself. I have lost weight on this program and kept it off and am healthy because of the “Thurmond” life choices I continue to make.

    It does work if you work it, my daughter has lost 35 pounds in 8 weeks! It’s not for anyone who does not want to really make a change. Along the way I had to motivate her to stick with it because it is not easy. She finished the 6 week program and is going on to continue with the lean diet plan that he has.

    Good Luck!

    Hi Betty, I did this plan a few yrs ago, and felt wonderful. It’s time consuming to pre-prepare meals, but enjoyable to plan them, I was never hungry, never full… my skin had a beautiful youthful glow. I am 46 and now vegan. You can do this plan vegan style… I would be interested to learn more about vegan meals, because I am new at it… but I am committed. I now see this post is 3 yrs old. If you see this… tell me how it went. I am about to embark the journey as a vegan starting now. Many Blessings. Cat

    Diets which are high in protein are more work for your kidneys. Diabetes and hypertension can both stress your kidneys. You should check with your doctor about where your kidney function is and if it is advisable/safe for you to be on a high protein diet. Salt and sugar restrictions are definitely good to ideas with Diabetes and Hypertension. Exercise that is moderate and tolerated to start and you increase gradually as you build strength and endurance is best.

    The review is not quite correct. In FACT, you are supposed to work up to exercising 4-5 days per week in the form of long walks, at least an hour at your heart rate (which instructions to find are in the materials). The “30 minutes” in the review is incorrect. First, its 20 minutes, second, its twice a week and third, the exercise spoken of in that 20 minutes is the muscle working routines using the exercise band. Those SCULPTING workouts are IN ADDITION, to long walks for cardio. And it works. I’ve lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks. No its not the 30 spoken of in the commercial, but is correct for someone like me who had less than 30 lbs to lose. Those more grossly obese will lose far more in those 6 weeks, just because they have more to lose, and IF THEY STICK TO THE PLAN EXACTLY. No cheating. End of story. And reviewers really SHOULD read the whole plan before writing a review.

    To be politically correct it’s morbidly obese—grossly obese has such a negative connotation affiliated with it–unless that was your intention.

    Actually grossly was not intended in the term gross as in disgusting, it is termed as high in number. I would rather be known high numbered than deadly obese. To be politically correct maybe you should google terms before you misquote yourself and sound dumb.

    The proper medical terminology is morbidly obese..just for a FYI, and it is written in medical records that way. It isn’t in insult…just a term used.

    how can this program be incorporated when cooking for a family with 3 small children?

    [Reply]

    Cynthia

    Honestly, you won’t be making food for yourself that you would be doing a disservice to you children to feed them. The focus is lean meats, vegatables, and low sugar fruits (depending on your body type). All foods you should be feeding a growing child anyway. You get grains, potatoes and rice too. You have to learn the correct forms and ways to cook them though. Using spices, no salt. Salt, Sugar, wheat and dairy are not allowed during your weight loss (read book for details. Salt retains water, sugar is empty calories, some people are allergic to wheat and gain. When you reach your goal you can add these things back in moderation of course. Anyway, you would prepare your proteins, veggies and fruits for you and your children, and your children can have ADDITIONAL grains, dairy and etc for them. You just have to have the willpower not to eat them. Things like meats can be all cooked on Sunday for the entire week, can freeze cooked for easy meal preps. Can buy frozen veggies if preparing fresh is too much work. In the long run, your children will learn healthier eating habits.

    My husband and I just started week 2 and I’m down 7 lbs and he is down 11 lbs. Obviously, a lot of that is water weight but it is amazing what a week does. Stick to it and it DOES work. It does take a lot of prep time but if you put that time in, you are more likely to stay on it. Use the help line for any questions..they are great! Also, look at their recipies..it helps add some flavor to the meals so you don’t get sick of the same stuff. Good luck to everyone!

    This really does work. If you read the info that comes with it, it just makes sense! The key is being prepared, and using food you like so you don’t want to eat off plan! I bought this plan several years ago (the price has dropped since then)and it was worth EVERY penny!! There is so much FREE info and support online and in the printed material, there is NO WAY in won’t work!! Congrats and good luck to all that are just beginning this new way of life, you will feel AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

    I saw the add on TV last night and was impressed. I weighed 543 7 years ago had RNY surgery lost a bunch. Now staying around 400 lbs. I have very limited activity.
    I have destroyed my knees, had a major malabsorbtion problem and have several health issues as a result.
    Is it logical to think that a program like this will really help me? I know I need to find a way or I will just die soon. I do not have the money for this program. Is there a way I can earn the program. I’m and LPN with alot of experience with research and diet programs. Is there a way I can get the program without a monitary output????? Thanks for your time. Linda

    Try ebay for your purchase. They are selling alot of them on there and you may be able to pick one up resonable. Alot less than you pay on the TV ad.

    I’ve tried it – it works. If you can afford then work alone with just eating 2 oz good lean protein morning, mid morning, lunch, mid afternoon and dinner. protein with a fruit & oatmeal for breakfast, Protein & fruit at midmorning, protein, vegetable or salad, small potato or rice for lunch, protein & vegetable for mid afternoon and repeat lunch at dinner but can change protein/vegetables around. Then exercise & drink lots water, no salt, sugar, bread, or much dairy. It works

    I think that you all need to lay off a person. I beleive that with healthy eating and exercise you can do this. Whether it following a so-called diet fad, or Michaels way of making a change in your lifestyle. Yes if you want wait-loss right away go for the fad diets, but be warned you will not be happy. Now if you are ready to make a lifestyle change I suggest following this plan. You also have to have faith in yourself and the change. And Michael says in order to lose weight you need 45-60 minutes of exercise to lose fat not 30 min.

    i think Michael is a genius. i was overweight for 10 years. i first purchase his book, 6 Day Body Makeover, and was impressed by the results so ended up purchasing the entire program. i lost 60 lbs in 3 months. i’m a totally satisfied customer. i’m working on his 12 Day exercise book now.

    I love Michael Thurmond’s Six week body makeover. I lost 38 lbs in 8 weeks and kept it off until I got pregnant and now I’m back on it to loose the baby weight. HELLO SKINNY JEANS

    I agree with you! It works very well!

    Sammie

    The negatives reviews are from lazy and people who want a magic pill to fix what they have done to themselves. Yes, you have to cut out salt and chop and cook a little more, but the results are worth it. I’ve lost 8 lbs in the first week and that is better than most programs out there. Do the accerlerated plan and you include cardio which DOES make perfect sense to you fitness naysayers. I am a fan of the program, you aren’t starving, you will feel good and you will lose weight if you stick to the plan. Try lemon, pepper, garlic…etc…you will never miss the salt. Buck up you lazy’s, get off the couch and try some fruit for a change, maybe you won’t be so cranky from not having fat and salt in your diet!

    I agree, I have been on the 6 week body makeover now for 4 weeks and have lost 24lbs so far. I have never felt better and I have more energy than I have had in a long time.
