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.

Please note, I am not a doctor, or health professional, and these reviews are based on my own personal experience.  Individual results may vary, and you should consult with your physician before beginning any diet, or exercise plan.

Review of Yoga Booty Ballet Workout DVDs


I received these workout DVDs, also compliments of my mother for Christmas.  I like that the DVDs come with a schedule for your workouts and also come with a small exercise ball.  However, my system didn’t come with weights, and weights are used in some of the workouts.  The instructors had a lot of energy and you were on your feet and moving around a lot. I found most of the moves pretty easy to follow, although at times a little challenging. 

I definitely felt the workout in my body and lost about 5 pounds my first week using this system.  My favorite DVD from the work-out collection is the Total Toning Basics, which is 45 minutes long.
