Who is Michael Thurmond and what is his Six Week Body Makeover all about? The self-proclaimed fat and nerdy kid who ate for emotional reasons grew up quickly to understand the importance of the proper mental state along with exercise and a healthy diet.
Turmond officially started his Six Week Body Makeover plan in San Francisco, California in 1980, so it’s been around for over 30 years.
Once you sign up for the program, your diet and exercise are based on your body type (endomorph, endo-meso, meso-endo and endo-ecto). According to Thurmond’s program, each body type gains and loses weight differently and have different metabolic rates. So, your eating and fitness program are custom fit to your personal needs.
In a quick video by Michael Thurmond on his website, he says his plan helps you lose weight by eating more and exercising less. However, there is a trend of complaints that say the diet is too restrictive.
If you take a look at the sample menu on our Michael Thurmond’s Body Makeover review, the food intake doesn’t seem abnormally low in calories. When you get to the exercise regimen, it is more than reasonable for anyone to keep up with. If anything, maybe the selection is a bit on the bland side.
Thurmond provides a personalized 18-Minute Body Sculpting Program; a resistance training plan that only has to be done twice a week. However, you are still implored to do daily cardio activity, such as running, walking, tennis, or even belly dancing.
There are also complaints about the price, which is north of $100. Regardless of its shortcomings, if after researching it for yourself, you can at least find comfort in the fact that it’s not based on fad diet principles and that it comes with a money-back guarantee.
