DIET and NUTRITION

Firm Up in 3 Weeks includes a shopping list and meal plans so it takes a lot of the preparation and decisions over what to eat from your hands and supplies it to you in an accessible way. In addition to three balanced meals, you can eat two healthy and one indulgent snack each day. Healthy snacks and portion sizes are listed for you in the book. Recipes, which can be prepared fairly easily, are also given.

EXERCISE

The exercise component of the Firm Up in 3 Weeks includes cardiovascular activity, resistance training and flexibility. The program requires that you exercise one hour each day according to the workout guidelines the book delineates for you. There are three levels to the exercise program that become more challenging as you progress through the three weeks. Exercises are also reprinted on pages so that you don't have to thumb back to previous pages in the book. Walking is a main staple of your daily exercise plan as well as flexibility and strength training exercises, which are also given.

CONCLUSION

Considering that Prevention magazine is a well-respected and well-researched wellness and health magazine, Firm Up in 3 Weeks is a program that is based on common sense and sound dietary and exercise information. From its meal plans to its exercise requirement, it is a very disciplined approach to lose weight and feel better about yourself but since it is only a 3-week program, the extra work it demands of you is only short-lived and hopefully, rewarding too. The intention behind the program is that once you are done with the three-week program, its reliance on daily exercise and sound nutrition will become an integral and prioritized part of your lifestyle.

While I find it tough to maintain the exercise regimen after the three-week program..I always look to this book when feeling out of shape and out of touch with my diet. The results are real and I know that if I dedicate myself for those three weeks I will feel great again.
