    It advocates a vegetarian diet, incuding non-wheat grains, tofu, and beans... and seems to be of the calories in, calories out mindset. Not very Primal. That website raises some other red flags with me too, I won't get into that though.

      I had a vegan tell me that in order to to eat tofu you need to give your body an adjustment period to get used to trying to digest it; if this is true it should be red flag that you probably don't want to eat it....plus it looks like a sponge *blech*
      My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

        I had to "unlike" Beach Body on FB b/c they kept posting nutritional advise that I thought was really off base. I love Tony as a trainer, don't like him for his nutrition.

          How ironic is it there is a recipe for apple-raisin coffee cake three posts down from talking about cutting out sugar?

            Yeah, that makes it hard to take anything on that page seriously. Cut out sugar! Oh, and put 3/4 cup of sugar in this awesome recipe!!

              His workouts are pretty much bodybuilder inspired split routines, too, rather than total body workouts

                At first I thought you said Mark VS Tim Horton. That was funny! Although perhaps only Canadians would get the irony of it!

                Also, I love how he says you have to cut out gluten and then in the same blog post he puts a recipie for Coffee cake that has "whole Grain" flour. Rather short attention span to put those two posts in the same newsletter.

                Cheers!

                  Mark wins hands down. His body is more natural looking with a lot less work. P90X is great for someone looking to 'get into' shape. But to do only regular maintenance type workouts, Mark is awesome.

                    tim horton. i ahven't thought of that in years. who makes a value meal of a bread bowl of soup, plus coffee and doughnut?

                    also, trained a kid once--a hockey player in the minor leagues--and he was going on and on about this great coffee that they have in canada, better than anywhere, and my husband is quite the coffee snob, and so they had a chat, and my husbnad goes "so, what is it called? maybe i can order some." and the kid goes "Tim Hortons!" DH and I really did try not to laugh, godblesshim.

                    anyway, i liked the 10 minute fitness videos. they were hard, and great when i was post partum. i mean, the max time you have in those first few weeks is about 10 minutes. so, i would do three a day, when i had the energy and 10 minutes to do it. thought it was great.

                    i never follow the various diet plans, and sure as hell wasn't going to do so while breastfeeding. no sub caloric then. i've never done p90x, but a lot of my friends love it.

                      Beachbody has some good workout routines, they really do. However, their nutrition is classic conventional wisdom.
                      I was highly disappointed and have to admit had my feelings hurt a bit when I found out Tony Horton was a vegetarian. He lost a lot of points in my book that day. Still love his training style, though. On that, he is second to none.

                          I also lost a lot of respect for beachbody for turning into a multilevel marketing scheme. They call their sales people coaches and what their saying is spam even if it's meat free tofu spam.

                            hay this guy blows the whistle on coffee 2. No wonder everyone hates him

                            He gets cheers for decrying sugar and gluten -- I also like how he cuts out beer along with other glutens. Looks pretty good from here. His emphasis on meatless I can understand also. Have you ever looked at some of the meat available to some food markets? There is no way I would eat that stuff. That's where he is coming from. That's probably whiy there are so many meatless people around - good meat is expensive and rare. Yes I meant that also.

                              haha....I thought that's what it said too...I was hoping to open a video with some kind of smackdown LOL.

                              Someone should do a parody ring fight - Mark wearing loincloth and bare feet wielding a huge steak VS Tim Horton in hockey gear wielding a massive chocolate donut!

                              (Sorry if only Canadians find this humourous).
