Hi all! I'm doing Jamie Eason. I will be starting week 3 on Monday. I am also incorporating running, so I'm not able to follow her meal plan without carbs, but I am doing the lifts and eating more protein. Looking forward to talking to you all!

Hi Mary - fancy seeing you here. I've just finished week 1 (for the 3rd time). I don't use the food plan, but it's a great ST routine. I've tried others, but love this one the best.

Welcome Hillrunner! Glad you found us. Happy to hear you already eat clean as I think this is one of the major contributions to success. I eat clean as well, but don't strictly stick to the particular small meal suggestions as I like flavor and variety. I think if you stick to the approved foods list, it will work just fine.

Just discovered this group!! Fantastic find! I have just finished week 3 day 2 and finding the consistency of ST a new thing for me. Working on the food side of the plan. Any hints as I already eat clean. How firmly do you stick to Jamie's food suggestions? What makes up your daily menu? Thanks in advance.

Welcome Spunky! Great to have you. Hope you enjoy the program-- if you stick with it and mind the clean eating, I'm sure you'll have great results. Keep us posted!
Just finished wk 1 day 1 of LiveFit! I know should of probably waited till Monday to start but I was excited to try out the first Workout! Hoping for some great results between this 12 wk program, the Couch to 5k app (currently on wk 5) and eating healthy that Ill see some great results! Hope everyone has a happy healthy day :)
clearly, I *need* to be back... just looked at my stats from my very first round of LiveFit... I weigh the same now as I did when I started then. 20lbs gained since May 2013 (for those who don't know, I finished my first round of LiveFit in May 2012- so I maintained and improved losses for a full year after). ... but lesson learned... no more workout breaks ever (not intentional this time, just travel, family issues, and fun had me putting my health on the back-burner.)

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and I am starting LiveFit Phase 1 today. I got all my grocery shopping done over the past few days and I'm all set up for success! I made the lemon protein bars. Hoping they're tasty.

Oh, I missed this one. I am doing another round of LiveFit. Had not been doing great for the last couple weeks because I was trying to do more cardio for the race. The race is over and now it is time to hit the weights HARD!
Glad you decided to take measurements. It really is wonderful to watch them change as you progress. Excited for you Lindy:)

I also agree that the meal plan is great. It is difficult if you are a previous unhealthy eater though. It is easier for me to track everything I eat. I always let other people's eating habits get in my way which is a bad excuse but people need to know that life does not revolve around food! And yes cutting the alchohol is not easy either. I only drink occasionally on the weekends in moderation.

hey SuzieQ- I think the basics of the meal plan are great. Not sure how stringently I stuck to the exact 'eat this at this time' aspect of it, but being introduced to Lean & Clean through this program was a life changer for me. Now if I could just cut out the alcohol completely... ;-)

HI ! I'm new here :) Been looking at LIVEFIT for a while now and decided to give it a go. I'm not really looking at the exercise part too much, but more of the nutrition. I have a trainer I see 2x a week, and then I do crossfit five or six days a week. If my eating habits were awesome, I'd be ripped!! But as such, they are not and I need to lose some fat and get to that muscle I know is under it. I will look at the exercises and try to work in as much as I can. I'm 32..living in GA ... transplanted Canadian. I look forward to doing this.

So, I will be starting Phase 1 on Monday 6/3 (after I can get to the grocery store)..I'm excited and a little bit nervous...Excited to see the results I will achieve in 12 weeks, and nervous because I have A LOT of weight to lose and am very very out of shape. Anyway....I'll keep you updated : )

Thank you. I had just noticed mostly all the testimonials were people that need to lose about 20-30 lbs. I have a gym membership and have have no restrictions so I am pretty excited about starting!
Posts: 967 4/26/13 3:27 P
In my opinion, its useful for just about everyone that can exercise with no restrictions, that have access to a gym or at home equipment. If you have restrictions or limitations - either due to an injury or due to limited equipment, there are still a bunch of ways to modify the exercises. The point is to challenge yourself consistently. As long as you have realistic expectations of how far you get in 12 weeks, you should be happy with the results if you stick with it.
I sure hope so. I'm about to start and I need to lose about that much.

I am about to start Phase 1 for the first time. Is this program good for someone that has 100 lbs plus to lose?

Hi Cindy. I ended up breaking down my moves in a document and then logged my total minutes under strength training in Spark. In the beginning I printed off the sheets and logged on them, then tracked the total minutes in Spark. There is no wrong way as long as you are getting in the workout:) For me I wanted to see the minutes. I would jot down the last weight used before starting the workout, because in a weeks time my brain wouldn't remember how much I used. LOL I still tweak my system.
Hi all!! My name is Alex and I will be starting the LiveFit program today! I actually stumbled upon this program on accident when I was looking for motivation randomly on the internet, but I'm so glad that I did. It seems like a good springboard for the direction that I would like to go.
Good luck all! I know I'm going to need it...

Hi Julee!!! Welcome and congrats on day 8:) Glad to hear that the alternatives helped out. Many of us have done, or are doing, the plan at home. Please post if you have any questions. Keep us posted:) Love having all of you Warriors here!!!

Just started this week, on Day 3, although I did do a preview day or two last week! I am doing this workout program with the Turn Up the Heat of your Metabolism diet to see where it gets me. Hopefully I will see some great results! The diet caused some great weight loss, but now I want to tone.

WOOHOO to both of you! Ha ha, I thought she might have been one of your friends from BLC Jan. Very cool:)
Just joined this team and started day 1 today. Sticking to the food plan okay and got my workout done. Half-way through the push-ups, I had to modify and dothem at a slant. Very challenging as this is my weakest part of my body.

I just completed Week One...again. I really love how most exercises have alternative exercises to accommodate you if you're using a home gym.
I plan on deep diving the site and reading up on the nutrition tips. So far, I've been sticking to my spark menu, but after reading the posts here, I'm going to see what modifications I should be making to maximize my efforts in the gym.

Phase 1, day 4 (shoulders/abs) question.. How do you do the front raise to a T? The video only shows the front raise... Do you do the front raise up and lateral raise down?

Hi and a welcome to the team:) I'm excited for you!!! You will get accustomed to eating all the food. It's a transition for most and that includes me. When you start to feel your strength and realize that it is GOOD for you to really eat, clean foods, it makes it that much easier:) Let me tell you this...I am on my second round and have been fumbling with eating and am noticing a difference. Take it from me and eat that food! Your body needs it on this. Please keep us update! WOOHOO!!!
Hello, I am starting on Monday. I had really wanted to try it before but I was leary about the amount of food needed to eat. I have decided I am doing it. So excited. I will be prepping everything tomorrow.

Good morning and WELCOME to the team! Congrats on hitting week 3 and knocking out those cravings:) Look forward to getting to know you. Keep us posted on your progress. Have an awesome workout!!!
Hi! I'm Laura - I just joined this team today, but today starts Week 3 of the Livefit program for me. I LOVE it! Once I got the nutrition down and enough protein, all of my cravings went away. I have muscles in places I've never had muscles before. Good luck to everyone!
