There are alot of people that figure they can do a day here and a day there and kind of do the diet and then get upset that at the end of the 8 or 12 weeks (however long it takes) that they don't have these amazing results.
P90X is a sponsor of my mma school and we incorporate alot of their exercises into our conditioning classes. The pro-fighters tend to follow the diet pretty closely when its time to get ready for a fight. Just from the workouts i can tell that if i did them the 5 or 6 days a week that you are supposed to and followed that diet, i'd be in excellent shape.
Just like it was said before, you have to have excellent self discipline to workout at home and that's the main reason why i can't really back this product. Anyone that i know can hardly workout at home unless they are doing a group Crossfit type thing in their garage and running around the neighborhood. I always recommend a gym over videos. Stuff like this and Tae Bo can work but you really have to really hate being out in public and severly determined to complete the sessions.
Also Adkins is a terrible diet to go on unless your weightloss is for a temporary goal. Once you reintroduce carbs back into your diet you are essentially fucked. Fad diets never work. You need to learn portion control and how to balance it. It's not really rocket science to get yourself on a good diet you just have to work on sticking too it. You know what is good and bad for you, you also know how much you should or shouldn't be eating.
