Review of Workout and Dieting Products


Have you ever found yourself sitting on your couch at midnight, eating a pint of ice cream, while watching skinny people prance around in leotards, promising that you can too lose 20 pounds in 20 days for the special price of $29.99? 

Yes, infomercials, the promise of flat stomachs and smaller jeans, but do these products really work?  I must say I have a sore spot for infomercials and advertisements that give me the illusion of becoming fit and slim again; so I have bought, tired, and reviewed the following items and diets:

1.      Mari Winsor Pilates;

2.      Yoga Booty Ballet;

3.      The Firm Total Body TransFIRMation System;

4.      The Jack La Lanne Power Juicer Classic;

5.      Acai Berry Juice;

6.      Atkins; and

7.      Weight Watchers.

Read the articles below for my personal experience with each item listed above.

Review of the Jack La Lanne Power Juicer


I like fruit and I like juice, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with this product!  I bought the Jack La Lanne Power Juicer Classic at a Department Store for about $99.99 and I really enjoy using it.  However, after only about 1 month, it seems to be losing its gusto; so I am going to exchange it for the new Jack La Lanne Juicer model with the no-drip spout. 

The original model (the one I purchased), has a spout that drips, which can be a hassle.  The other hassle is the clean-up afterwards.  I make large pitchers of juice at a time, and there is a lot of fruit pulp and clean-up involved.  However, all of the juice I drink tastes amazing, and I think if you can afford to get a Juicer and have some spare time, you should definitely consider this product.
