Summary from GoodReads: Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With TRACY ANDERSON'S 30-DAY METHOD you don't have to worry--her unique workout will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in just 30 days.

Based on ten years of scientific research and experience getting not just herself, but A-list stars and everyday people, red carpet ready, Anderson has developed a unique 30-day diet and workout routine that reshapes the body and defies genetics to tone the muscles and drop the pounds. While most people incorrectly target their major muscle groups, like the bicep or hamstring, the focus should be on the smaller accessory muscles that can create a long, lean, balanced look--instead of bulked up look. Anderson's program is composed of a groundbreaking three-tiered approach, including a mat workout and cardio routine targeting the all-important accessory muscles, and an exclusive 30-day meal plan, complete with dozens of delicious recipes. 

This comprehensive kick-start program is unlike any other workout on the market and it leaves no chance for anything but terrific, fast results!

My Review: OK, I was really curious about this book. It comes with a DVD as well. 

As someone who is WAY into fitness, I found myself less concerned with how the book was written than I was with if it really works. There's so many things out there {books, DVDs, pills, etc} promising you that they can transform your body.

Even though I'm a former professional fighter, I've had trouble keeping the pounds off the last few years. Maybe it's because I was a fighter for so many years and had a really high activity and cardio level, or maybe it's because I turned 36 this year and have more than a couple of kids. ☻

Anyway, the book is very well written and she doesn't promise you some miracle cure. She tells you that you're going to have to work, and work hard. You're going to sweat. She also asks that during the first 30 days you make no food substitutions and set aside at least one hour, uninterrupted, to do the workouts. 

You don't need to spend a lot of money getting ready either. You need a yoga mat {even towels of a thick blanket works for this}, gym shoes, a kitchen/dining room chair that's sturdy and eventually ankle weights.

The problem I did have, was even with my fitness background, some of the exercises were a little difficult to understand. You have to do them properly in order for them to work the right muscle groups and show results. The second thing is with her menu. It may work great for some people, but for me, being a picky eater, there was a lot I won't eat. She does offer a regular menu option and a vegetarian menu option.

So, let's cut to the chase. Good book and well written with no false promises of fairy dust to give you the body that you want. But, does it work? Well, that's what I'm going to find out for you. Starting Monday I'm going to try her 30 day method. I'm going to see what results I get. I'm going to carefully log everything I do so I can be as accurate with everyone reading my blog as possible.

The method is broken down into three 10 day parts. So I'll update every 11th day and I'll see if it works for me.
