DIET and NUTRITION

The Reshape the Nation diet plan is carb-cycle approach to weight loss. The four different phases (or stages) alternate between "high" days in which you eat more carbs for boosting the metabolic rate and building muscle and "low" days in which your carb counts are reduced in order to focus on fat loss. You also have built-in reward days so that you can have your favorite foods without you derailing from your weight loss journey.

Powell believes that carb cycling for a nutrition structure is much more effective than any static or stable nutrition program.

In following the program, you are also encouraged to adhere to the STAX™ system, a system of color-coded portion control containers, a climate controlled carrier, and a countdown timer.

It is an all-in-one nutrition system that portions, times, and carries your meals for the day. To add STAX™ your new lifestyle, simply follow these 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Pick your Recipes: Select and prepare your Reshape Recipes, and store them in your STAX™ containers.

Step 2: Portion Quick™: To portion your foods, just fill to line that matches your weight on the side of the colored containers.

Step 3: Time it and Go: STAX™ at home: Set your STAX™ timer for meals every 3 hours and place on your refrigerator or countertop , STAX™ will keep you on track all day long.

EXERCISE

Every day, you will workout with Chris online to a new fitness routine that he created and developed. The workout phases will change on a weekly basis to maximize your results.

The program features Powell's Shape the States system of movements,which are adapted from the fundamental, basic movement patterns of the human body: pushing, squatting, and crunching. He created 50 workout celebrations for each of the 50 States, utilizing different combinations of these movement patterns.

As you go thru the movements, Powell will explain what is happening in your body every step of the way.

The State Celebrations take only 10 minutes in the morning, and they can be done absolutely anywhere. Each State Celebration is followed by an “accelerator” designed to maximize fat oxidation (burning). As you “Shape the States” you’ll develop strength, muscle tone, and endurance.

Workouts feature a combination of cardiovascular and strength-training in an interval-based formula, providing you an immediate caloric burn as well as charging your metabolism long after your workout is complete.

CONCLUSION

Reshape the Nation's philosophy of "Transformation through Education" provides members with highly effective nutrition and fitness techniques that will last a lifetime. Reshape the Nation workouts are accessible to all fitness levels and require no special equipment. The nutrition program is based on affordable and nutritious food you purchase at the grocery store and prepare at home.

The program was difficult to follow with very specific menus to make. The worst part is that I tried cancelling my subscription after a few days and was told the $31.98 I paid was non-refundable even though I signed up under the FREE trial promotion! Rip OFF! The call center was obviously in India and they were of little help when I tried to get my money back. Stay away!

Lynn,

I am just curious to how you can be a member for less than 24 hours, quit the first day (on a 7 free trial) this only 2 days ago and you are saying that for 3 months you wont be refunded any money.

It doesn't sound like there is any problems with ReshaptheNation, which by the way Chris Powell built. Everything on ReshapeTheNation was taken from Chris Powell and his transformation plan and built out on the internet for him. Since Chris had never really outlined his plan, that was the purpose of building out ReshapeTheNation.com is so that everyone, (not just the few that Chris could touch) would have a chance at living their dream.

ReshapeTheNation.com was built by Chris and his team. I personally have used the online program and found it very user friendly, as well have had no issues with billing when i chose to stop the program.

Best,
Not Disappointed at ALL

I've been dieting to some extent for years (never with much success). Then I saw Chris Powell's TV show and I got inspired, so I gave Reshape The Nation a shot. Honestly, I didn't expect much (I tried Jillian Michael's online program too, and it wasn't very good). But imagine my surprise when, after my first month, I was down 18 lbs!

But that's not the reason I'm a huge Reshape fan. It's actually because of all the other users. Someone else posted on here that you have to get help from other people like it's a bad thing, but I disagree. That's what really makes Reshape stand out. It's that we don't have to do it alone (finally!).

I think the reason people are so successful on Chris' TV show is because he's always there to motivate them. Since we can't get Chris motivating us in our homes, the other Reshapers are a great stand in, and they've been exactly what I've needed to succeed!

I love Chris Powell, I think his idea/plan is fantastic, so I joined. After spending a full day on the site, TRYING to navigate my way around I decided to cancel my membership. It claims free 7 day trial, but if you join for 3 months, you will not get your 7 days trial, you will not be refunded any money at all. Even , if like me, you were a member for less than 24 hrs.
Unfortunately, the website is not userfriendly, it's difficult to understand the program and the only way to get answers is to speak with other members.

so disapointed!

I've been using reshape for about two weeks, and the difference has been amazing. It can be a little challenging to figure out at first, but once I did I started seeing results quickly.
