How likely are those results to occur? My friend and I are starting a new workout plan that guarantees the loss of 20lbs/2 pant sizes in a month. It's like, an hour of weight training, 90 minutes of cardio in addition to eating properly. I'm excited to try it, but will it produce the results it says? Do most of these type of work outs give the results they say they will?

"Results not typical." "When combined with a sensible eating plan." "Pictures are of actors, not participants in this program."

Those tend to be the disclaimers found somewhere. Just have fun with the program, stick to your eating plan and don't believe the hype.

If you followed it perfectly, I'm sure you'd come close, if not meet that goal. But do you really want to work out 2.5 hours a day? Is that realistic? Do you have the time for that?
