I know ... I know....I want her abs too!  I spent a great deal of time reading this book trying to figure out if it was just another one of the latest fad things but you know I don't think it is.  Now, I have not tried her method because of the meal plan  but it all makes sense.  The meal plan is one that I would have to put my whole family on since I don't prepare separate meals and right now I am not sure I have the time to devote 30 days to this...just being completely honest.

There is nothing in this book that appears to be unhealthy or a fad...but with this said her concept in training is different.  Tracy Anderson looks at the smaller muscles in your body and toning those up and by looking at her amazing body it clearly has given her the results she wants and it has apparently worked for her clients as well.

Now the first thing you will read is to not do what I did...don't read the book and expect to lose weight :)  Yup...I was hoping.... do expect to work hard and change your eating habits.  Tracy Anderson works out a very detailed meal plan for you to follow for the 30 days with various options (such as a vegetarian option).  The meal plan is detailed and you have to follow it in order for this method to work...she does explain that she simply wants to take the guessing game out and frankly the first month is probably the hardest to change your habits.  Have I mentioned that I really want those Abs!!!  With holiday season in full swing I know you will probably want to pick a copy up which you can easily do at any major bookstore or through Amazon.
