Does the 30 Day Shred Work? - My Weightwatchers UK Magazine Article

It's taken me a while to put this up but I'm very proud to show off the article I wrote reviewing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred for the Weightwatchers UK magazine!
I wrote about it when it was actually in the shops, (April 2012 edition), and had a lot of my American friends ask for a few scans. The lovely people at the weightwatchers magazine gave me the pdf to add to my writing portfolio so I thought it might be easiest to upload and embed here.




If the embedded pdf doesn't work for you, not to worry. You can view it by clicking the following link:

Things to remember is that when I was following the 30 Day Shred I wasn't really pointing. It was the run up to Christmas and although I had my graduation to work towards, I had a lot of socialising that month.
There's also part of the article talking about the reps in level 3 that I've had a few emails from people asking me to clarify.
Throughout the DVD Jillian never has you counting reps, apart from the odd "4 more!". When I started the 3rd level though I felt like the intensity was upped, perhaps through more reps, perhaps because at this point I was doing the more advanced moves most of the time, perhaps it was just a mental block because the 3rd level was the hardest. No matter what this DVD does work. It was a brilliant damage control over Christmas.
Now that I am back to weightwatchers properly, I plan on introducing scheduled activity in the next few weeks and the DVD is definitely going to be a key part of it.

Any questions, do ask, I'm on twitter, or there's the comments here.
