From my point of view a good place to start, for someone who hasn't done Pilates before, is the Pilates section of about.com: Pilates Exercises for Beginners
They make their money from the supplement business so you do have to just get past that. I only use protein powder for a supplement. And while I have nothing against Pilate I don't believe it has been shown to strengthen bone and counter the effects of osteoporosis like weight/strength training has. Just saying their is a place for both in a exercise plan. Feel free to correct me if I am mistaken.
