The P.I.N.K. Method

What does a workout and diet program need to make it big in the mainstream?

Apparently it needs to endorse lots of products and make it onto Dr. Phil. At least that’s all I could see that the P.I.N.K. method had going for it…(Oh and obviously a ton of money to spend on the packaging and marketing).

Oh and I guess it does need a whole lot of women who supposedly never liked working out, but managed to lose a ton of weight, endorsing it and saying it was the only program they could stick to. HA!

As far as I can see, the P.I.N.K. method (which stands for Power, Intensity, Nutrition and “Kardio”…yuck) is the same old crap just re-packaged with lots of pink. Light weights, “toning” exercises and cardio that looks like ever other workout tape for women is what you’ll get on their nicely packaged DVDs.

Along with the workouts, you’ll also get the same old nutritional information you find in every women’s fitness magazine, BUT they’ve made up catchy names for their dishes…like “Shred Soup” (which is essentially just a chicken broth, veggie soup) and some Pink Smoothie (I can’t remember the exact name, which is just a berry protein smoothie).

But hey…I mean don’t listen to me…Dr. Phil says it is a revolutionary new program. And with their Sketchers Shape Ups and Yoga pants that will burn more fat, it has to work right?

And if it doesn’t at least you got a free bracelet along with the DVDs…

P.S. I also love the lack of information on the P.I.N.K. method website. And I wish I could come up with some witty thing to say that P.I.N.K. stands for…Any ideas?

  1. Pretty Incredible New Kimmick!

    I was taken in by this when watching Dr. Phil, but afterwards realized it was just the same stuff told to me over and over. I have all the stuff to lose weight and the excuses why I’m not doing it. I just gotta use what I have and I’ll reach my goals.

    • LOVE IT!

      Use what you have and find something you enjoy. Experiment with lots of different workouts. I find that “testing” workout programs is a great way to trick yourself into getting in some great workouts!

      Plus the health and fitness industry would love to convince you that losing weight is complicated and you need all of these products and programs to do it. BUT IT ISN’T!

      If you ever want any help (such as diet or workout suggestions), let me know! πŸ™‚

  2. Pretty Insane New Krap!

  3. I agree wholeheartedly! Just get up off your butt and move. Eat sensibly and you will lose weight. Don’t spend all that money on their gimmick!
