The official website for the Six Week Body Makeover says that the Six Week Body Makeover was devised by a weight loss expert and “Master Body Sculptor Michael” named Thurmond. Thurmond developed this program in the year 2000, in conjunction with Provida Life Sciences. According to those who have followed this program, the Six Week Body Makeover is a customized weight loss regimen. You fill in what they call a ‘Blueprint’ on the company’s website, and a customized eating plan will be designed for you. This plan claims to take into account your particular metabolism and any weight loss problem areas that you have.

Ingredients

This is not a weight loss supplement, therefore there are no ingredients.

Product Features

The Six Week Body Makeover consists of a customized eating plan, which the designers of the programme say is specifically tailored and designed to work with an individual user’s particular metabolism. The second part of the makeover consists of customized recipes. If you purchase the Six Week Body Makeover, you will also receive a video of an eighteen-minute body sculpting program, and a body sculpting routine with targeted exercises that the designers of the program say will help you lose weight. Finally you will also receive three audio cassettes which will explasin how to sustain your weight loss. The Six Week Body Makeover can be purchased directly online from the official website at a price of $119.94. There is also a money back guarantee.

Advantages

  • The official website is very detailed and the Six Week Body Makeover can be purchased directly on line.
  • There is a money back guarantee.
  • The weight loss program is designed to address the user’s personal weight loss challenges.

Disadvantages

  • There do not appear to have been any controlled standardized tests carried out on the Six Week Body Makeover routine.
  • Normally customized and personalized weight loss programs designed to suit your particular weight loss challenges also include an appointment with a doctor or dietician but this one simply involves filling in an online questionnaire.
  • The designers of this program do not provide any clinical proof that it actually works.
  • Similar personalized weight loss plans normally provide access to a weight loss counsellor. This does not.

Conclusion

The design and presentation of the Six Week Body Makeover weight loss program is very slick. The BluePrint Questionnaire that new users fill in is also quite detailed, yet personalized weight loss plans which are designed to meet your individual health and metabolism needs are probably best conceived under the guidance of a doctor. There does not seem to be anything dangerous about the Six Week Body Makeover, yet at the same time there is nothing to suggest that it is superior to other similar customized weight loss programmes on the market.

    This is an amazing product. My husband and i bought it 10 years ago and i went from 150 to 118. My husband went from 300 to 190. No not in the six weeks. But my husband did loose about 30 in 6 weeks. He is a male and had more to loose.
    People seem to be complaining that the program is restrictive. There is nothing restrictive about it. There is a large array of vegetables and lean proteins out there. This is how we should be eating. It isn’t normal to eat fast food and high calorie processed carbohydrates.
    Yes, you have to prepare food, but you have to prepare food anyway if you want to eat.
    You are eating real food on this program and you learn ways to prepare it that are low in fat but high on taste.
    We just started back on the program because over the years the weight has crept back up. Our fault…too many cupcakes and treats. so we are doing ourselves a favor and kick starting some more weight loss.

    This is a great Diet. You get to eat and you change your eating habbits for life. You are not hungry on this program the results are rewarding. There is no miracle diet pill or liquid,I tried them all, learning to eat correctly is the key. Diet companies want you to beleive their programs work, need want your money. They never tell you change your eating habbits,you loose weight then gain it back and more on top of that when you stop the pills you go back on them you are hooked and they profit. Not with this program, This is a great program if you follow it, it will work. The doc told me I would qualify for lap band surgery and would be a great candidate for it, I told him i already purchsed the 6 week body makeover and will be back in to weigh in after one week on the program when that day came to his surprise I was down 7 pounds and when i showed him the inches i had lost , he asked me about the program. This program was a lot cheaper than the lap band surgery would have cost. Seeing the results, my sister purchased the program and her and I are working towards regaining our bodies back and most importantly our health.

    I just ordered my program for the second time. While it is very restrictive, I lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks when I first used it 5 years ago. I learned that preparing my food ahead of time works wonders. I am also planning to do the exercise this time since I did not last time and see how it goes. I highly recommend buying the cookbook because you do get bored eating the same foods over and over.

    I tried 6wbm and found that it is too restrictive and involved for me. But the fun part was when I wanted to send it back. You will have to pay postage again for sending it back, which I thought the $20 S/H I paid already was enough. Good Luck!

    I purchased this program several years ago and did it without fail for the full 6 weeks. I lost 28 pounds EASILY! I then made the mistake of thinking that I was able to control myself and not gain the weight back… but now here I am starting the program again. I have started and stopped multiple times and each time have lost weight. It is simple, and pretty low maintenance. My goal this time is to do it for 4 weeks to see how much I lose and then I will do another 4 weeks and so on. Not everyone is happy all the time with everything… but the program does work when you do it the right way.

    I ordered the product in August of 2010. It really worked well for me and I lost about 10 pounds in 2 weeks. Now I am picking it up again and going to stick with it this time. This is only my second day and I am having problems that caused me to quit last Fall. I feel VERY fatigued all of the time and my fibromyalgia and arthritis flair up very much. I was in college last fall and couldn’t deal with the “detox” (as I was told by a counselor) However, I am not in school this summer and will be doing online classes next semester, so I will be at home. My question is, has anyone else had any detox to deal with. I absolutely HAVE to lose the weight so I am going to bear with the pain and fatigue. If you want to email me, my email is thomlori@gmail.com. I sure would love to have a buddy to go through this with :)

    I just brought this product and am sending it back. First, I was under the impression we would be able to eat the foods we normally would eat and learn how to mix and match the right foods together to loose weight. I only have 5-10 pounds to loose. I have gained weight on this program. I can’t eat everything they say I am only 4 10. However, they tell you not to defiate from the plan, especially if you are a women below average height. I already eat most of these foods and do a 5-6 meal a day. I was looking for information and education about all foods you can combine to loose weight. I did not know we would have to subtract from our diet, creamora in coffee, salad dressing, olive oil, etc. Not to mention half the food on the plan are not even mentioned. I understand they want you to do this for six weeks then you can start reintroducing foods back, but this seems to me like failure down the road. It seems to me some have regained weight when the slipped off the “plan”. Great if it works for you, I’m jealous. For me not a realistic plan FOR LIFE!!! Not for me.

    I ordered this product because I needed something new to try to lose weight. I’ve tried Weight Watchers several times – it works, but I’m bored with it. I received my package in less than 2 weeks. Only on it for 1 week – I’ve lost 5 lbs – I’ll keep you posted.

    I just want everyone to know how I was treated ordering this product. It was my first time ordering off the television. I decided to order this product for my mom. I placed the order and decide to cancel after my mom decided she didnt want to try it. I called within 5 hours of ordering which they told me to call back tomorrow, since my name wasnt in the computer yet. I called the same number back the next day and spoke with someone who said,”Not a problem, your money will be refunded”. It wasnt. I got charged for the $40.98. When calling the same number the next day, a man tells me I have called the coaching line and not customer service and he is sorry I was given the wrong number. I talk to a supervisor Rosemary in customer service. Tehy bascially made me feel like it was my fault that I was not given the right customer service number and that I am still getting this program and I will have to pay the $20 to send back. I think its not right that the woman who I spoke to, told me I would get a refund and no worries. Instead she should have told me it was the wrong number to call. I bascially am giving this company $20 of my money.She keep telling me there is nothing she could do and she knows if I did say cancel they would have given the right number. Like I was lying about cancelling the order. I know there are other programs out there that wouldnt treat you this way.

    I have been contemplating getting this diet plan, but am very sceptical. I have done Weight Watchers in the past but it takes so much time because of figuring points on everything you eat (I don’t have that much time). How time consuming is this plan?

    Valerie

    My sisster ordered this diet plan. Since we are the same body type i followed it to a t. I Lost 30 pounds in less than a month. I was taking 2 pills for hypertension, after doing this program I’m only taking 1 pill a day and looking forward to not taking any. Preparing the meals was not a problem because i wanted to succeed. I have tried every diet you can think of but this one here, is alright with me.

    I started the program on April the 26th 2011. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks. I have lost 10 lbs and 8 inch all over. For me this program has been a life saver I have been over weight all my life and just piling the pounds on after having 6 children it was just hard to lose the weight back off. As i approacher the 200lb mark it was time for me to take a stand. this program is really worth the money. you have to sacrifice a little but gain big rewards and you do eat a lot and never feel hungry.

    I started the program 1 week ago and in the 1st week i have lost 4pds. I think is one of a few that really works because since i’ve had my 1st child it has been hard for me to lose the weight. For me to have lost 4pds the 1st week i was impressed. I did slip this week but im getting right back to it because it does work

    Before you send for this kit be sure it’s what you want. I sent for the Six Week makeover, but before it arrived I changed my mind. I was told by their customer service to return it when it arrived. Then they ask me what they could do to get me to keep the product, and offered to knock off 2 payments. I returned it and it cost me almost $30 to do so!! On my CC bill I was charged $40.98. Customer service said I would only get half of that back because I had to pay $19.95 S/H to have it sent to me. What a racket!! The customer pays for S/H BOTH ways. I don’t think very much of the way they do business. (*)

    This program worked wonders for me. Not only did I lose about 45lbs in my six weeks time but I kept is off for about 4 months after eating off the plan badly. Also in the review of the diet I would like to point out there were (4) four comments for disadvantages but 1 comment was repeated (but worded differently)(3) three times. HMMM food for thought

    I bought the six week body make over in february of last year I lost 25 lbs following the program and I can’t believe all the food I was able to eat and still lose the weight, well the holidays came and I got off the plan and gain some weight, but now I am back on my plan and in three days have lost 3 lbs I love this plan because you can pick a cheat day to eat anything and everything you can and still lose weight.

    I am on day 5 and have added: Drink Ice water. Ice surns more calories. I make a smoothie out of the grapefruit with cinnamon, ginger root, stevia, and vanilla. Also eat the eggwhites within half hour of waking. It seems to help. We’ll see. I make a bunch of spinach, turkey and chicken, and rice. Roll out a lonnnng peice of plastic wrap, plop the measured food in a pile every foot on the wrap, then cut into individually prepared packages…flatten them and put them in “file” form in the freezer…marked for snack, luch kinner etc.

    I am a 48 year old mother who has had diabetes for the past twenty years, with hypertension…do you think this program can help me?

    [Reply]

    Peggy

    First of all, talk to your doctor about any program. I am not diabetic, but, strangely, this program taught me I should be eating like one. Started out about 5 years ago, about 60 pounds heavier. Lost the weight in less than a year, learned a lesson about how my body works. It may help, but talk to your Dr. Good luck

    I love the program, I di it before and lost 14lbs in 2 weeks! I just started again last week and have already lost 8 lbs, thats in 6 days! I love this program because I get to eat constantly. The key is preparing your food ahead of time. The reason I fell off the diet last time is beacuse I quit preparing my food. I already feel great, it really gives me energy, I can feel my metabolism speeding up. The food Im eating is deliciouse too, way better then the fast food garbage Im used to eating. The key to keeping the weight off is to use the living lean section. Its called eating the way you are supposed to for the rest of your life. Whats great is even if you slip up for a meal or a snack, you stil continue to lose waight. I love this plan much better then weight watchers.

    I used this 6 week makeover 5 years ago.. I went from 190 to 127 lbs. In the last year I gained weight due depression. I’m starting back on the program because of the results I initially saw 5 years ago. I was always that fatty of the family, and suddenly I was the “thin” one. ME! The thin one. It’s time to go back. The biggest motivators for me? ‘lose 30 lbs in 6 weeks!’ —and I did, and then some! It works, just be consistent.

    I started January 1st at 216 pounds, three month later i bring weith 176 pounds, my biggest problem seems to be finding new clothes . i think the program is wonderful, i am almost 50 years old, and have dieted most of my life, but nothing has ever led to such rapid results.

    It Works. If you are looking for a miracle pill try the ones in the drug stores. I was told that I am a great candidate for Lap Band Surgery. That was the turning point for me and my health was going down and i am only in my fifties. Results were immediate and i do not regret the fact that I am eating healthier and know how to eat now. The doc was surprised when I showed up a month later for my re-check apt. I was 20 pounds lighter not to mention the inches lost. He asked me what i did and was Amazed. I know was looking into this program and he will probably be reccomending it to others.
    Very Satisfied and healthier Looser.
