IdealFit 6 Week Challenge Weight Loss Results & Week Three Workout Reviews!

Back from a 10 day vacation and did gain some weight- lots of eating, drinking, and not a lot of exercise -but it was an awesome trip & worth it. BUT time to get back to reality. 5 days back on my IdealFit meal plans and I am down 3 lbs!! Feeling great. 
As you probably have read, I have been following the IdealFit meal plans and have lost 15+ lbs! I also recently purchased their workout DVDs. The meal plans are based on macro timing around your workouts. The 15 day challenge meal plan and workouts are free! I started there, loved it so much I purchased their 6 Week Fit Body Challenge, and then the Sculpt Challenge.  The 6 Week Fit Body Challenge bundle now comes with the workout DVDs! The meal plans give you exactly the amounts of carbs, proteins, and fats based on when you workout. Their protein powder contains no carbs, no sugar, and is only 80 calories. Each day you get SIX meals!!! So you get to eat every few hours and you get unlimited veggies from a list. Tons of variety in eating, a food sub list, and unlimited veggies! Here is my affiliate link (click the challenges link in the toolbar) that save you 10% on your order (over $20) and I believe I also save 10% on my next order. Stay tuned on the blog for detailed reviews of all the workouts.

This DVD set contains 6 weeks of workouts on 6 DVDs. Each week has 6 workouts; each weeks workouts are on its own disc. The workouts are set up to be done in their chronological order each week and contain cardio, strength, and core work! You will need to add on your own warm up & cool down, though the paper workouts detail a warm up & cool down routine. Each workout is right around 25 minutes. You will need dumbbells and a stability ball for these routines.

Exercises include runners lunge raises, dumbbell tap behind squats, dip & knee raises, prisoner squats, stationary lunges while passing the dumbbell, body weight squats - squat hold- squat hops-pop squat combo, and plies.

These are solid to high intermediate workouts, though they do contain some advanced exercises you dont do many reps. The workouts are only 25ish minutes and you can easily adjust the intensity by adjusting your poundage, adding weights, or doing a modification that Lindsey offers. The workouts are appropriate for most all fitness levels. Lindsey coaches the workout and her partner performs the exercises. I love the interval format and that each workout contains cardio so you dont have to do a separate cardio day. Each workout is efficient and you accomplish a lot in only 25 minutes. The pace is moderate and allows for moderately heavy weights. They do give you 90 second recovery breaks between circuits that are great if you need them, if not, you can FF through them. I did NOT receive this dvd to review.
