I haven't tried it but I hear is works if you put it in your DVD player and push the PLAY button. If you're wondering if you'll be shredded in 30 days....lol. No way unless you're already at 10% body fat. If you're wondering if it will help you lose weight...maybe. But you're going to have to do the work and I personally wouldn't trust Jillian any farther than I could throw her. Here's the JM story.

Jillian Michaels is a popular celebrity fitness trainer with meager qualifications considering the amount of hype she manages to generate. She's holds only two personal trainer certifications which are of very low level academic value and not even the equivalent of an AA degree. To my knowledge she has no bachelors degree in anything and has acquired her celebrity only through self promotion and the hype from the two reality TV shows on which she's appeared.

Michaels has been sued several times for promoting or selling dangerous or unhealthy supplement products. She has had several cosmetic surgical procedures to improve her appearance. She has be known to exaggerate, misrepresent, or lie for the sake of promoting herself for no better purpose than self glorification and material profit. She has been repudiated by a old one-time friend and martial arts trainer and an article in the Los Angeles Times revealed her to be little more than a fraud. She is also believed to have used steroids to improve her physical appearance which accounts for her somewhat masculine look in many old photos. Almost all recent photos promoting here have been retouched (Photoshopped).

There is nothing of value on Michaels website (here --> http://www.jillianmichaels.com/ ), which costs $3 per week ($156) annually that cannot be found elsewhere on the Internet for free. She promotes myth and is a purveyor of bad information as is evidenced by her book "Master Your Metabolism" for which she has been criticized by several experts here ---> http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/master-your-metabolism (see pages 2-3). The title of her book attempts to capitalize on a common myth which suggests that we can do things to make permanent or long term changes to our metabolism which, of course, is not true or medically correct.

In general, Michaels has nothing new to offer. The best health and fitness experts in the world have provided a wealth of information for fat loss, fitness, and health maintenance and all for free and on the Internet. All we have to do is find it, study it, and muster the self discipline to use it. It's available from the US government agencies NIH, USDA, CDC, and FDA. Pop icons like Michaels run on hype and cool sounding and catchy phrases such as "30 day Shred" to exploit the false hopes, ignorance, and naivete of the public for the sole purpose of their own personal financial gain.

More on Michaels:
• Here's an interesting video which is worth watching from Michael's one time martial arts instructor ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbsYbE0xAs4
• CBS News ---> http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-20019588-10391704.html

• Queerty.com --> http://www.queerty.com/jillian-michaels-fitness-trainer-fraud-20101014/

If you want to burn fat, I can tell you how to do that for free and what I tell you is approved by the US National Instititute of Health, the people doctors listen to in the US. Here ya go.

• Go here ---> http://www.calculator.net/bmr-calculator.html and calculate your BMR.
• Limit your daily caloric intake to your BMR.
• Make sure you eat only wholesome, varied, nutritious, high quality foods in 4-6 small meals per day.
• Keep your macronutrient ratio at 55/20/25 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein respectively) by tracking your intake.
• Track your intake here ---> http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ (or Live Strong, Sparks People, etc)

Here's my intake for example ----> http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary/clickmaster
(Note - I'll be pigging out today later because it's my wife's B-day)
