WE can do it!!! I'm actually excited about it. I can't wait to be healthy and have more energy!!!!
I would love it if each coach had their own diet regime. As far as weight loss goes, every diet works if you stay on it. :lol I would like to see a comparison between, Primal diet vs Low Fat vs Calorie counting.
My weight swing is 10lbs to at one point 30lbs pounds overweight. I have done all three. One is faster than the others and one made me feel deprived and cranky.
I love the idea of doing kids this season with the focus on activities they enjoy rather than in the gym the entire time.
And yes, one hour is plenty if they still refuse to show more than half of that in the gym!
Diet is 80% of losing weight and we only see them working out or going to Subway of all places! That is not a great place to eat unless you are doing just straight calorie counting. It is not healthy by many standards. Their "whole wheat" bread is no different than a white roll. It is a long way from containing much whole grain. And both affect your glycemic index.
Anything different would work for me. This show needs a tweak.
The Subway thing is catering to the sponsors. I know from reading Jillian's books that she personally does not advocate eating their sandwiches or using artificial sweeteners. I think Bob's philosophy is probably similar. Dolvett I don't know, but you don't get bodies like that by scarfing fast-food subs. I know people who train competitively and the dietary restrictions are unreal.
One hour & once a year works for me. The only thing I don't like about once per year, though, is that it's half the people getting the opportunity.
ETA: Shoepie, they won't do a variety of "diet plans" because the trainers advocate portion control & eating "real food" (single-ingredient, non-processed). Unfortunately they also include plugs for sponsors like Subway & artificially sweetened gum, which sends mixed messages to the people who are working along at home. But I suppose it's just a TV show that has to make money and there's a bottom line to be met.
2 hour premiere on Sunday, January 6, 2013.
I am not sure I will enjoy this season, I understand why it is being done. But I do not want to see the game play, screaming at the teens. Overweight teens have enough problems to deal with all ready. I will watch the opening and see what is going on and then make my decision.
OTH there are some teens that need lots of screaming and yelling at.
While Jillian does yell at the folks on BL during her summer show when she traveled the country helping entire families she never yelled and the kids loved her. She approached the family from a life coach and personal trainer aspect. She would find out what the main issues were help declutter and organize the house and set the parents and the kids on health plan that included nutrition and exercise. She was very supportive.
