I honestly dont think the shred is enough to lose 20lbs.
I did the shred for about 27/28 days or so and I toned up a bit, but i didnt lose a ton of weight. I realized I needed to add more cardio into my routine and now i feel like im on my way! hehe
I don’t know anything about the shred personally but I know that it is really hard to lose weight from exercise alone.
I just got the disk and the cover it says Lose 20 lbs in 30 days so I thought that was a pretty big claim to say.
I feel the same as HoneyBear because I did the shred for a month and didn’t really lose weight, but rather toned up a bit. I don’t think it is enough as a stand alone workout to lose that much weight unless you are seriously dieting at the same time.
I feel like most of the girls on here.. doing a work out on its own and not dieting is hard.. Plus the DVD people always want you to be on a diet or take “vitamins” to help you lose weight.. I would always recommand to run.. Running has done magics for me.. i loved the way i feel and yes it takes time to lose weight and yes i did have to eat less but it works..
Oh i never done the Shred but i know for sure that if someone is really heave they can lose weight a lot faster than someone who only wants to lose say 10-15 pounds.
I can see how the shred could make you loose a lot of weight if you are really overweight/obese and really never do exercise. Combine the 30 minutes a day with a hard core diet, and I bet you might see the pounds come off. For someone like myself (pretty typical I think) I might loose 5 pounds but most of that is because I am trying to change some of my eating habits as well.
I think I lost around 8lbs when I last did the 30 day shred. I get the feeling it really depends on body type and metabolism and various other factors. It’s not like a “one size fits all” kind of thing. But with the shred and a change of diet I don’t see why you couldn’t lose that much.
What exactly is the “30 Day Shred” & is it expensive?! I def. want to lose weight in 30 days so this could be perfect for me!
@Lees- you should get this! I got it this weekend and a lighter set of weights – 3 lb. They basically make you do regular kind of exercises one after another for 20 or 30 minutes straight. Sit ups, push ups, cardio, lunges, etc, all mixed together. The DVD was $9 at Target. PS: Your other post totally made me pumped to lose my little problem areas, too. Giddy-up!!
I think it’s possible to lose 20 lbs in 30 days, sure – but you’d have to be probably overweight and really kicking ass. For me, i think that if i did this for 30 days and watched what I ate, I could probably lose up to 5 lbs or at least start to build more endurance / tone muscles. I’m going to jamaica in 30 days so i was hoping to get totally ripped, since I didn’t think to exercise before the actual wedding haha.
@Melissa: Thank you girl!!! Wow, only $9. That’s good! I’ll def. be going to Target tonight then & buying it!! I’m really wanting to get commited & it’s hard to always go to the gym, so this might be just what I need!
Oh and Melissa me & you both have to get toned in 30 days!! Let’s see how we do 🙂
You’re on! Spring is coming soon here, and I am going to be ready! I’ve been feeling doughy lately and this will really boost my self esteem and energy 🙂
Me & you both girl..I’ve been feeling so down on myself, this will def. be the boost wr both need. Woop Woop!
Just an FYI – the shred is also avaiable on time warner on-demand for free (if you happen to have that cable company!)
The Shred is on Cable On Demand here in NY… we are Time Warner user. It’s channel 724. I have done it 3 times over the past 6 days… I am in pain! haha
