    Is there a specific diet or do you just mean diet in general? I eat about 1200-1400 calories a day, and mostly healthy food (rarely eat out, bring my own lunch to work, chicken and fresh veggies for dinner).

    I'm really good at maintaining, but I have to work a little harder to actually lose. But if you need motivation - book at BD shoot!! Haha

      haha! it was HARD...and now that I moved to level 2, I have not been using the 10lbs! :)

        she has a book too, which is AWESOME!!!! i bought it.. advice from my trainer.. anyway, she has grocery shopping lists, recipes for the meals, a specific diet plan & also a 30 day workout plan.. when i travel, i bring the book w/ me along w/ some weights so i can continue the workouts.. the ones in the book will take about 40-45 min to complete.. but goes by quickly bc its always different! here is a link to the book if you're interested:

        Amazon.com: Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You: Jillian Michaels: Books

        I haven't finished reading the entire book.. i've skimmed here & there & looked @ the foods & worked on the exercises, which are very similar to her dvd. once i'm done w/ 'chasing harry winston', i'll get onto reading it completely.. but the diet seems ok.. its hard to make everything on there @ all times if you're busy, but you can get the idea.. oh & no alcohol for the month, ladies!! ugh! i haven't incorporated this part yet, but will do so starting tomorrow actually.. ugh!! lol.

          haha.. i work out regularly with a trainer that uses the same routines as jillian michaels.. i use the 5 lbs bc i still feel the burn like crazy & its challenging, but if i push through i can do! 10 lbs is crazy.. my trainer uses 8lbs bc she doesn't want to bulk.. so, it depends on what you're looking to achieve! ;-)

            Hey! So maybe I'm not looking in the right places, but on Exercise TV I haven't been able to watch her INTRO to the program. How long are you supposed to do Level 1 before you move to Level 2? FI and I tried Level 1 last night, and we both got a great workout! My calves hurt today (Again)!

            We're not really utilizing it the way its been to be used (for the full 30 days, every single day), but I'm using it in replacement of workouts when I don't feel like going to the gym, and I feel like its a great workout!

              I just bought the DVD yesterday and I am going to do my first workout this morning!! I hope it works good!! I need to lose about 10 lbs. and firm up-- Maybe I should book a BD shoot for motivation!

                i think when you get really comfortable and no longer feel it's hard to do, or makes you sore, you're ready to move on to level 2.

                  Guess I will have to buy it online. I've checked Best Buy and 3 Wal-Marts and can't find it anywhere.

                    Walmart puts the workout DVDs like on the end of a random aisle. It's no rhyme or reason to it.

                      I should have asked someone! I'll have to go back and look harder and ask for direction. Hopefully it's in stock!
