Yeah, folks past the 6 week mark, your comments are most welcomed to the rest of use newbies!!!! (This is my 19th day on the program with a 20 lb. loss!)

Any comments regarding the use of Nu-Salt? Did it cause a stall or weight gain?

Happy weekend to all!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Maxamo,
I read on the "official bullitin board" that nu-salt was a no-no thinking it has something to do with the potassium. I am still waiting to hear if fruit-2-0- is ok instead of plain water, heck seems to be working for me....

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Annie,
I still drink the Crystal Light. Where do you get the Fruit 2-0?

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Chantel,
I get fruit 2 o from either sam's club, or my local supermarket. It has no fat and no calories, naturally flavored in rasberry, strawberry or orange...I love the taste and it has been a godsend...Happy Hunting!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hello all,

I've been following the threads and I have to say that I'm torn by the pro's and cons. Also, I'm a full time student. If I should somehow scrape up the funds for the plan, does anyone have any suggestions about how to follow it while in school? I don't have much time at all between classes so the mid morning and afternoon meals would be hard for me. I have about 10 min. to get to the next class. Anyone? Anyone?

Thanks...Ellie

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Ellie,
I work full time and what I do is I prepare ahead of time. I microwave chicken breasts then take a 2 ounce portion with some fruit(grapefruit, cantaloupe or pinapple chunks) and put it in a glad disposable container. So when I leave for school in the am I bring my lunch(usually the chili recipe over half a potatoe) and bring two containers with the chicken and the fruit, it is fast and easy and have been known to eat it with my fingers..(bring a napkin) I think the key to sucess with this program is cooking ahead of time and freezing individual meals for lunch and for dinner. I started this program on Oct 11( 2 1/2 weeks ago) and I have lost an amazing 19 pounds. I find it has almost(note almost) been painless. I wish You success...

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi everyone, I thought I would join this thread. I have not lost alot of weight. I am hoping that the next three weeks will show a significant improvement in weight lose. I seem to be fluctuating. But the time of the month is over and I hope things will come back into balance now. I'll let you know. I weigh in on Wed. It will be the beginning of my 4th week.

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Annie, Chantel and Maxamo for your updates... Keep them coming! Today is day one for me, turned out to be a type B. I am 5' 10" and weigh 200. My first goal is 40 lbs. off, will take a couple of cycles... I am okay with the food, I am going to try the precooking of weekly lunches, etc. I think the weigh once a week will be okay for me too. I haven't read very much of the material but will get through it. Keep up the good work gang! :o)

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

hello all! Congrats to those of you who are losing weight! I bought the program back in may(of couse i didnt get it until june. I put off starting it because we were moving. Then I just never bothered because i didn't think I coukld live on the food plan! But it seems it is working well for you all! i am a stay at home mom so i don't have the time issue to deal with.

I am 5 ft 6 and about 200! i would like to lose 60 pounds so I guess it will take me two go rounds to get there. Are you all doing the exercise too? How is that going? I have been doing a workout with similar resistance bands and riding my bike 3 times a week so I think I am ready for that part!

Good luck to those of you just starting out!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi I am new to the boards, I have order MT and it should arrive today. I need to lose 100pounds, But I will take one day at a time. I seem to gain my weight when I got married and then after my daughter was born Dec 22, 1999. My husband is also over weight and says he will try it (only if it works for me) but he is supportive and says I look great the way I am.

Well I am excited and can Hardly wait.

Thanks for let me vent :)

Susan


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Heather - Start today girl! I am also 5.6" and I once weighed 200. This is a doable program. Especially since you are at home, you can cook and drink tons of water! No public bathrooms lol! I hate those... I also am a stay at home mom.

Susan - Let us know what letter you are and keep posting. It helps. You can do it! Start by drinking 100 ounces of water.
After a bit of practise, this program is easy. At least I think so.

Well, I am off and running!
Bye!

PS: I lost 3 inches off my waist. Very cool!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Chantel, Thanks for the encouragement! i guess since I spent all the money I should at least give it a whack!

I noticed that they are going to start not letting us post in January if we don't make a donation and that there are no yahoo clubs for people on or interested in this program so I have started one! I hope you will all stop by! You can find it under Health& Wellness>Fitness & Nutrition>Weight Loss It is called M Thurmond Body Makeover Club it should appear in the directory within 48 hours or you can email me for the link!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hello everyone,
I just ordered the 6 week makeover. I have been trying to lose about 60 pounds. A few years ago I had great success with Nutrisystem but they folded up and left my area. Can now only purchase through web. Decided that was too expensive and quit. Maintained my wieghtloss for about two years though. Unfortunately the wieght has returned. Some co-workers talked me into Weightwatchers and I have gone for 9 weeks now and only lost 7 pounds and I am hungry alot. Needless to say I am a little disappointed. I am hoping that this plan will help me drop the weight a little faster and that I will not be as hungry. Best wishes and good luck to all those who are trying and thinking about trying the Michael Thurmond's 6 week makeover. Here's hoping it is not to good to be true.

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Good Morning,
Today is twenty days and the weight loss is twenty pounds(much slower loss this last week..) I am feeling great and am energized.
Chantel, You go girl!! You are doing great!
Sue, Welcome and happy trails..
Gina, You must be two days into it now, how is it going?
Heather, time you used your kit!!
Ellie, keep us posted.
Certifiable..(love the nick) dont get discouraged it can take awhile for the kit to appear at your door.
Now for the big question, How does everyone plan on handling Thanksgiving?
I have been toying with the idea that if I have 30 pounds off I will take the day off and eat and drink in moderation, any opinions on that?
I wish you all a peaceful day
Annie

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi, this is Tonya!!!! As I posted on an earilier, I got my package and was supposed to start sunday...well I started monday and have already cheated. :o(
To the other "beginners" of the program...it is imperative that you prepare your meals or else you leave room for error or a slip up. I'm disappointed with myself already but I'm going to get back on track. I'll be at the farmers market as well as some grocery stores this weekend. As a body type b and some wild body part numbers, I have a lot of exercises to do and it will definitely take more than 18 minutes...to me, that's not enough time anyway...when I work out, I work out so I think I'll be reaping even better results by doing beyond what the plan perscribes.

I really hope this plan works because I have tried too many other things and have wasted over a thousand dollars on pills, drinks, groceries that will help you lost 10 pounds in a week!! (yeah right) and sooo much more...this is my last resort....I can't wait to see my new body that's what drives me to do this and to do it right.

Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up, hit the bands, I think I'll incorporate weights in with that..and hit the treadmill afterwards for a half hour.....It's so hard to prepare meals though...that's my challenge. I'm a full time 8-5 worker and a part time student that zooms directly from my job to class that begins at 6!! On my way to school monday, I ate on the road!!!! sounds ghetto.... but hey, I guess that's what I have to do to get in each meal!! I've never eaten this many times a day....I've done from one meal a day to the traditional 3 meals a day with junk food snacks in between but I love the way I've begun eating....the meals I can play with the spice them up but it's just the number of times I have to eat them! :o) Sorry if I got a little wordy but to those who are beginning the program..use me as an example and begin RIGHT....prepare everything the day before...buy your groceries in bulk because they'll definitely go within a week! and exercise....don't give up so soon like I did....I'm going to get back on track though because if the program works for all of the others...I know It'll work for me.....

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Good Morning all!
Today is the midway point,(of at least the first six weeks..lol) As of this morning I have lost 22 pounds. It is just so incredible and to think I survived Halloween without one piece of candy( and I went to a party...brought my own dinner). The holidays are approaching fast and furious and I pray I have the will power to handle them with success.....Tommorrow I will do my measurements and see what has happened in that department. I wish you all a fun first day of November....

Certifiable~ I am also hoping to lose about 60 pounds on this program good luck! I have statred a club at yahoo for people doing this program. If you are interested you can email me for the link!

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi everyone.
Starting the 6 day mini makeover today. I blew it yesterday but the scale still shows my 8 pounds long gone.
I am going to measure on Friday and will keep everyone posted on my progress.
TTFN!
Chantel:)

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Good morning everyone-

I have been reading the threads for some time now, and thought I'd finally put my two cents in. I have been doing the program for 6 weeks (with one cheat day -- Halloween, I suck :) I have lost 15 pounds and 12 inches. I am very happy with the results. I have found that I must prepare my foods in advance. If I get lazy or don't have time to steam veggies, I get into trouble. It is so much easier to have pre-portioned protein and veggie just waiting for me. So anyway, I just wanted to congratulate those who have lost and get in on the discussion.

Good luck to everyone and keep motivated!
Andy


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Morning,
Today is the 23rd day on the program and I have lost an incredible 24 pounds. To me is seems unreal that it is just dropping off, have taken before pictures and one every week. Welcome Andy, and I agree with you, one has to be prepared, I spent three hours cooking last night, made the chili, the jambalya, and the stuffed peppers. I also made the turkey sausage.. I now have enough for 13 days of lunch and dinner... Well I am off to go canoeing, have a great one all.
Annie


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Annie and Andy! How inspiring you 2 are!

Annie: Can you post the recipe for the stuffed peppers? Or email it to me? I do not have the package. My mom bought the program and we do not live together.
Thanks!

Well, I have not yet measured but I am sticking to it.
Hope to get around to measuring next week when I have more time.

Bye all
Chantel

PS: I bought this guys book over the internet for 10.00 dollars and I did my body fat! Oh my gosh, 34% it said.
I am 5'6 1/2", I weigh 171 and my waist in inches is 34.
I was so shocked and saddened. He said the best is 22% for women. If that doesn't keep me on the staright and narrow, what will?


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Chantel, here is the recipe as I use it:
8 green peppers
1 pound ground turkey
4 cups rice cooked
chopped green pepper(use the tops minus stem..lol)
1 onion chopped
2 cups mushrooms
garlic to taste
1 cup tomato sauce(low sodium)
Italian seasonings( minus salt)
lots of pepper
I slice off the tops of the peppers remove the core and seeds then par boil them for about 7 minutes( not too squishy though)
I mix the rice and the seasonings in a bowl
In a large non stick pan I saute onion, mushrooms, garlic and ground turkey over medium heat until fully cooked, add the tomato sauce and simmer it, then I stir it into the rice mixture, I fill each pepper with the mixture til over flowing, let them cool and freeze them in a ziplock baggy, I then take them as needed through out the week. It is great for lunch microwaved ..
There is usally left over filling even though there is not supposed to be so I bag it as extra servings and eat it with an added veggie like fresh green beans. Happy cooking!
Another thing I found at Sam's club is a large bag of fruit flash frozen with peaches, melon, pineapple, and strawberries, I sprinkle sweet and low on them while they defrost, I find them delicious the package also has grapes in it and seeing that is a "c" fruit I discard them...
Have a great day all.
Annie


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Thanks Annie, I am going tomake these soon.
Well, I have been on track for the last 4 days.
The scale has shown a 3 pound loss. Thrilled about that.
Will continue the 6 day mini makeover until I need more variety. The tuna seems to help.

How is everyone else?
Chantel

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi Annie,

I Was curious if you could tell me a little more about this program. I haven't seen the infommercial yet, plus I'm a very picky eater (couldn't tell by looking at me :)
I don't like green peppers, cauliflower, and other things like that, as far as veggies, brocolli, corn, peas and green beans are it for me, oh and I do like kohrabi, but I don't like fish. Could you give me a sample meal?? TIA


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Ok...I am new to the forum, and am rather upset that they are changing it to a pay to post forum. But beyond that, I got my system off of eBay, its a Christmas gift from my boyfriends mother, so I will be starting on New Years Day...gotta get my drink on before I go gung ho! I just wanted to let you all know that because of this forum I am beyond motivated to get on this program and stay motivated to lose a good 60 lbs before my 25th birthday. I think it is totally possible, considering I am giving myself 6 months to lose that weight. By Christmas I hope to have lost 150 lbs. That is my ultimate goal. I am 5'6" and 300 pound currently. I blame it on genetics, and lack of self control. But I think that is all going to change. I will keep you all posted on the yahoo board...or through email, however...keep up the good work, and thanks for the motivation!!


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi all!
It has been five weeks today and I have lost 29 pounds!. I have loads of energy and can really say being successful losing weight feels better than anything could ever taste!
Morning glory gal,
this diet is customized to your body type and preference..So it is a little different for everyone, but a typical day for me is:
2 ounces chicken/ 1/2 grapefruit in the morning
2 ounces chicken/ pinapple chunks mid morning
stuffed pepper( recipe included with the program)
2 ounces chicken mixed fruit(peaches,
melon,strawberries) mid afternoon
turkey chili over 1/2 baked potato dinner
2 ounces chicken 1/2 grapefruit evening snack
I drink over 100 ounces of water daily
Hope this helps... Have a great one all


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Thanks annie, I ordered the program over the internet and they said it would be here 5-7 days, I did the test on their website and it said I am type A. May I ask if that is what you are. That menu doesn't sound to bad. The last week I have been on a reduced carb diet per dr orders for diabetes. My typical day is two piece light wheat toast w/ spray butter for breakfast, lunch is usually chicken and fruit, and dinner is usually salad, baked potato, and small portion of what I fixed for the kids. Hopefully I can adjust to this program it sounds great!! I have lost 3lbs on the reduced carb, been on it for 6 days, hopefully this program will speed it up.

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi All,
Where is everyone? Well I for one am glad that Thanksgiving is over!! and the damage was none... as of today (a little over six weeks, I have lost 31 pounds..) How is everyone doing?


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Happy belated Thanksgiving-

well, I have been trying to keep up with the posts and AnnieB, your results are great! Good for you!!!

I read my original post and I made an error, at 3 weeks I had lost 15 pounds. Well, I got off the plan due to a trip to Paris (no way I am giving up wine, cheese and chocolate when I am in the good food capital). But I am back on the palan and it feels great to see the scale moving again. 18 down and only 30 more pounds to go. We are snowed in here and I am fighting the urge to eat warm, comfort foods! So I am off to make some tuna! If anyone has some good recipes, I would love to see them! Thanks!

Well finally got the program today, still have alot to read. I was wondering, I broke my foot about a month ago and dr still says no walking on treadmill, will working out on my total gym be sufficent. Also I am going to do the mini makeover first, just for a little motivation, any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.


 o
RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

Hi. I've read all of the responses concerning the makeover and I would really love to try it ( correction,NEED!!), but my one year old takes up most of my income. Does anyone know of somene who has a used kit that they would like to sell? I just can't pay $160.00 right now. Thanks.

RE: Michael Thurmond 's 6 week makeover

I have seen the product on t.v. it looks good. I have tried thousands of diets. I need to lose at least 100 pounds. I truely enjoy reading all the posts on this site. I am disappointed that it is going to be available to paying members only soon.
I would love some feed back on the program. I really can't afford the program but if it works and is good I can't afford not to. Please give me some encouragement.....ANYONE?
