The newest weight loss program to hit the market, the P.I.N.K. Method was unveiled yesterday on the Dr. Phil Show. This program is designed specifically for women by nutritionist Cynthia Pasquella. There are already rumblings that P.I.N.K. Method and the wildly popular P90X are quite similar. It’s a comparison that Pasquella welcomes, but is also quick to point out the differences.
In an interview with DietsInReview.com, Pasquella compared her P.I.N.K. Method with P90X. She pointed out that two programs are similar in that they each combine workouts with a healthy diet, and they provide users with daily direction. However, she says the two part ways there.
“What I did was focus on women because we’re not the same as men,” she told us. In her clinical nutrition practice, Pasquella recalled women who would feel bad about themselves after attempting the rigorous P90X. With P.I.N.K. Method she wants them to feel “empowered not defeated,” and she does this by designing a three-phase workout program that gradually increases in intensity.
How else does the P.I.N.K. Method stack up against its competitor? (more…)

Depression and I go way back, but it wasn’t until college that I started taking medication to treat it. Thus began my ride on the prescription drug roller coaster. People who don’t understand depression would say things like “you should exercise, you’ll feel better”. I resented those people and thought “yeah right, a run around the block will cure everything”. I could barely get out of bed, let alone go to the gym.
After a particularly rough 2010 resulting in a new medication regimen and considerable weight gain, I decided that I would give the “exercise will make you feel better” advice a shot. Nothing else was working so what the heck, right? Being the extreme person I am, I decided to do the P90X program. I started on December 26th and committed to working out every day for 90 days. I hate to admit it, but I have never felt better.
You know how it is with a good idea in fitness. Once someone has it and it does well on the market, before you know it there are similar-sounding programs that come on the scene to take advantage — or improve upon what was already a good idea. We’ve gotten a lot of questions on the new Supreme 90 Day program lately and how it compares to P90X, so we wanted to give you a solid break down of how they’re similar and how they’re not.
P90X, the popular extreme home fitness program, understands the importance of tracking all indicators of fitness.
Instead of just tracking weight or measurements, P90X has an intensive Fitness Assessment that tracks your weight, measurements, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular capacity every step of the way.
The P90X program is split into three phases, 30 days each, and at the end of each phase, you will retest to see how much your health has improved. The first test is done before the first P90X workout so you know your baseline of fitness.
P90X, the wildly popular extreme home fitness program from BeachBody, claims it can get you into the best shape of your life in 90 days. I’ve done it, and it can.
The secret to P90X‘s success is that it is not only designed to push you to your limits each and every workout, but the order of the workouts is strategically designed to avoid strength plateaus, so you continue to grow and improve every step of the way. This technique is called muscle confusion, and it is the single best way to get results fast.
If you’ve never heard of Tony Horton‘s P90X, you must be living under a rock, but just in case, P90X is a 3 phase, 90 day fitness program comprised of 12 workout DVDs. What sets P90X apart is it makes no promises of being easy, but nothing that is worth it ever is, right?
