Michael Thurmond's Six Week Body Makeover

Change your body in six weeks with this blueprint system.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Michael Thurmond’s Six Week Body Makeover is a revolutionary weight loss program that has been getting people results for more than 15 years.

The program is easy to follow and begins with you with creating your own blueprint for the healthiest you. With the program kit, you receive an in-depth questionnaire that asks you specific questions about your diet, health, food preferences and your reaction to certain foods. You can also take the evaluation online.

After you’ve completed your blueprint and figured out your body type, you can move on to creating your makeover plan. You will be given recommended foods and an exercise plan based on your body type. The four different body types include endomorph, endo-meso, meso-endo and endo-ecto. Each of the different body types gain and lose weight differently and have varying metabolic rates.

By ordering the Six Week Body Makeover by phone or online, you receive the Quickstart plan, your customized eating plan, customized recipes, a personalized 18-minute body sculpting program, the Living Lean program, which is the maintenance plan, a 6-day mini makeover and access to 24/7 online motivation and support.

For those that are unsure about the program, you can try it risk-free for six weeks and return the program for a full refund if it doesn’t work for you.

DIET and NUTRITION

While on the Six Week Body Makeover plan, you eat five to six smaller meals each day to get your metabolism going. The foods you eat will depend on your body type, but certain general rules apply to all body types such as avoiding processed foods, eating foods that are naturally low in salt and for some, dairy must be avoided.

Below is a sample day of eating for those with body type B (endo-meso). This particular body type builds and maintains lean muscle easily, yet has a very slow metabolism. A day of eating might include the following:

  • Breakfast: Three Egg whites or three ounces of turkey breast (low-sodium); 1/2 grapefruit (or 1/2 cup mixed berries, or 8 oz. all natural grapefruit juice)
  • AM Snack: Three ounces of turkey breast; 1 cup lettuce
  • Lunch: 2 oz. chicken breast; 1/2 cup brown rice; one cup mixed veggies
  • Mid-afternoon snack: Three oz. fresh tuna; 1 cup lettuce
  • Dinner: Two oz. chicken breast; 1/2 cup brown rice; 1 cup mixed veggies
  • PM Snack (optional): 1/2 grapefruit or 1/2 cup mixed berries or 8 oz. natural grapefruit juice
EXERCISE

Exercise is another important part of the Six Week Body Makeover.

The plan features Thurmond's own Personalized 18-Minute Body Sculpting Program, which is to be done twice a week for 18 minutes a time. It is a resistance training plan that is used to tighten and tone certain areas. The 18-Minute plan is featured in the Precision Body Sculpting Workout DVD the program comes with a specially-designed body sculpting band that you use to perform the exercises.

All of the exercises can be done at home or taken to the gym.

You are also instructed to incorporate daily cardio activity into your routine. Some of the exercises you can do include:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Jump rope
  • Tennis
  • Step aerobics
  • Belly dancing
CONCLUSION

Michael Thurmond’s Six Week Body Makeover offers you results and a well laid-out plan to help you lose weight. Although some say the program is difficult to maintain, it does get results and leads to healthier habits overall.

The plan is customized for your body type and allows you to eat more frequently while losing weight and exercising less.

I have had this program since 2003 and LOVE it. If you are like me and need the rigid plan in order to stick to it, then this is for you. It keeps me focused and yeah, it does take a lot of work, BUT being healthy is a lot of work and if you haven't been doing any work now, then likely, this will be a huge change. The thing is, we put effort in everything else we do and our health tends to suffer for it. Not anymore. This is a long term plan that will help you form new eating habits so you can be healthy and fit for life. Stick to it, and you will see fantastic results.

I have been doing this diet since Sept. 22nd 2010, and have lost 41 pounds. It is a very hard diet to follow, because you are limited in what you may eat. And because you are not eating much at meals. On other programs like Weight Watchers ( which I love too!) you eat an amout of food based on your body weight and as you loss body mass you eat less and less. On this diet you eat the same amount of food thoughout the whole program. A 300 pound person eats the same amount of food as a 160 pound person. I was hungry alot in the start, but now I am not. It took 3 months not to feel this way. But, I pressed on because of the amount of weight I lost was wonderful. I am a Type A body type.
