ABC’s newest reality weight loss TV show “My Diet is Better Than Yours” is flipping the script and putting the contestants in charge of their weight loss plan. Hosted by Shaun T, creator of the intense and wildly popular workout program Insanity, “My Diet is Better Than Yours” features celebrity personal trainers coaching average Americans as they work hard to lose weight and get in shape with the program of their choice.
On Wednesday Dr. Oz will be welcoming fitness superstar Shaun T. to his stage. He’s being billed as the “man with the miracle plan to bring your body back.”
Shaun T., or Shaun Thompson, is the face and body behind Hip Hop Abs and Insanity. Both are at-home workouts that have been sold on DVD to millions. Shaun is going to reveal how he’s helped thousands of women get fit and back into their skinny clothes. Many before and after pictures and Insanity subscribers will be present during the show to prove his methods work.
Shaun will be letting us all in on the techniques behind the Insanity workouts that make them so effective. He claims that in just 15 minutes a day one can see a major transformation in their bodies. The workouts are a maximum interval training method, which is a method of exercising where one works out strenuously for 3-4 minutes and the rests for about 30 seconds before ramping up again. All of Shaun T.’s workouts can be done without a gym and in your own home. He states, “all you need is your body.”
Shaun will also be revealing his three revolutionary rules to burn fat all day long. He emphasizes that there are ways to keep burning fat even while you’re not working out. Dr. Oz and Shaun will cover some major dietary boosters to help people meet their weight loss and fitness goals.
