When I read what was being said about the new Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method: the Weight-Loss Kick-Start That Makes Perfection Possible, I couldn’t believe that someone would write and someone else would publish statements such as “defies genetics to tone, trim, and reshape the body”, “no chance for anything but terrific, fast results”, ” You can have a body more beautiful than you ever dreamed”, etc. I picked up the book from my local library to read it myself. I was surprised to read that she is from the Indianapolis-area, but shocked to hear, when I asked about her theories, that her reputation is not very positive in this area. Online I found that it is not only Hoosiers that are complaining and filing lawsuits. While it might not seem that naysayers and business mistakes matter to the effectiveness of Tracy’s “Method”, the irresponsible statements in this book make more sense to me after learning about her irresponsible decisions in the past.
I believe all of us can make improvements in our bodies with focused intention and hard work. I have also watched a friend work out for over an hour every day and never gain an ounce (he was trying to beef up). Along with thousands of others, I watched Jillian Michaels‘ frustration trying to help Brittney Aberle lose weight on the Biggest Loser’s fifth season. There are many factors that influence how our bodies work, why we gain and lose weight. I do believe the “Tracy Anderson Method” may be effective and even a great solution for some people. I am concerned, however, that promising perfection is both false advertising and irresponsible treatment of her readers.

Like many women, Gwyneth Paltrow found losing weight more difficult after her second child than after her first. “After my first pregnancy, the weight had come off a little bit better but after the second one it was really stubborn. It was really hanging on,” the 37-year-old told The Press Association. She gave birth to her second child, Moses, in 2006, and found getting back to her ideal figure difficult. “It was not easy and, when I started it, it was by far the hardest thing I have ever done – but I really was seeing results so it motivated me to just work through it.”
Paltrow is planning on releasing a cookbook titled, My Father’s Daughter, in memory of her dad. But she didn’t let her love of good food get in the way of a healthy diet and fit body.
Paltrow enlisted the help of personal trainer Tracy Anderson to lose the baby weight. The actress insisted that her achievement is something everyone can do, “every woman can make time – every woman – and you can do it with your baby in the room.” Paltrow didn’t let her workout get in the way of spending time with her children. “There’ve been countless times where I’ve worked out with my kids crawling around all over the place. You just make it work, and if it’s important to you, it’ll be important to them.”
