Original advertised offer details & such: 6-week plan - $119.94 + $19.99 S&H. $39.98 paid initially. Guarantee: Risk-Free, Money-Back.

I might be cynical, but when I think of people who claim that exercise programs don't work I think of my uncle, the diabetic, 65-year-old, 5'7", 295 lbs. bowling ball who claims his diets don't work between sips of bourbon. Not because of the stereotype, but because it really takes that type of effort to make change. Herculean, overwhelming. But as long as you feel completely uncomfortable when you start, you're probably on the right path. 

Either way, the 6 Week Body Makeover has been around for years now. Still chugging away. Still creating converts who write, blog and believe in the ideas. The question is:  are the ideals worth believing in. 

What Is 6 Week Body Makeover?

The 6 Week Body Makeover has become somewhat of an institution. It's a lifestyle change moreso than a program. It helps people learn how to lose weight without feeling as though they were starving. It also comes with an exercise program that helps people learn how to exercise efficiently. The 6 Week Body Makeover also recommends that people to see the results for themselves, with the sensation that improved results will lead to a reinforced commitment to continue on. It's the crafty concoction of Michael Thurmond.

Who Is Michael Thurmond

In an interview with Charleston / Huntington, West Virginia's WCHS ABC 8 , Michael Thurmond is described as a, "master body sculptor and rapid weight loss expert..." The article goes on to point out his philosophies and methodologies that go into healthy eating, body sculpting 

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to mybodymakeover.com, 6 Week Body Makeover claims the following features and benefits:

  • workout customized for your body type
  • no weigh-ins or meeting
  • proven success
  • over $200 in bonuses
  • money-back guarantee (minus S&H) if you dont' like it in 6 weeks

Does 6 Week Body Makeover Work? Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process: We've found a few strong complaints over the years regarding the product. The thing was that we didn't see much follow-up on the complaints when it comes to order. In fact, one of them has since been spammed and nobody seemed to care. Given that complaints were spaced out through the years and that there wasn't much followup, we take them to be isolated incidents and not a trend. Still, make sure all the numbers work before you order. Though in fairness, the 2003 complaint has some really riveting discussion about the quality of the program.

Product Performance:  As the 2003 discussion thread notes above, it really depends on whether or not you dedicate to all aspects of the program. That includes healthy eating, proper rest, workout intervals. From what we can tell, it's a life-change commitment and those who haven't taken great care of them could stand to benefit. Now, note, it's probably wise to consult your physician before starting but that's typically good common sense.

And people have been vlogging their efforts. For example, check out the effort this blogger lady has put into the program and how happy she is with her results:

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
