The advice is based on research as one would expect coming from this source; however, the sample consisted of only ten women. In addition, the women on whom the plan was tested ranged in age from only 34 to 53.
It seems unusual that a 34-year old would be concerned enough about aging to participate. In fact, in her “before” photo, she looks fresh-faced and quite youthful.
In all of the “after” photos, the women have new hairdos and flattering dresses and makeup. They look good, but were the changes meaningful? Over eight weeks, they lost very modest amounts of weight. Special machines measured the qualities of their complexions before and after. According to those analyses, the tone and texture of their skin improved. For an eight week span, perhaps these differences are all that can be expected.
The book begins with a chapter on skin care with advice on cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing products that do what they claim. Next come makeup and hair suggestions. The authors then go into diet plans featuring foods to improve health from the inside out. A chapter on fitness follows. The book even addresses brain fitness and stress reduction.
For those eager to see quick results, a seven day “Jumpstart Plan” includes a meal plan with recipes. For life after the eighth week, a final section titled “Forever” gives motivational tips on how to stay on track.
Looking younger requires a lifelong commitment, not just eight weeks.
