Default 60 Insanity?

I'm trying the Beachbody 60 Day Insanity workout. So far, I'm seeing a difference in my strength, breathing, and tone in 1 week, so I'm happy. I'm not following the diet plan, however.

Anyone want to share their experiences with this?

Just thought I'd update you guys. I'm back to doing tae bo because between Insanity and work, my knees were not handling it well. However, I've noticed I'm sorer after tae bo, but less tired.

I am tossing around the idea of doing insanity. I have a free summer for something like this. I have issues with my knees though so this might not work out after all.

The results will get you amped! But I was also kinda cranky, and like I said my knees killed me!

Nutrition is key! Food is fuel so not eating the right way can effect everything else you do and the results you will see.

Kinda funny you mention this. I am not an old guy but my knees feel old. When i see the insanity commercials I just think "over use injury". My guess is that the average person who's not in pretty decent shape to begin with would have a hard time getting through this program without some problems. It's very, very high impact. I'd love to do it personally. I am positive I have the will power to get through it but there's no way my joints would hold up, no chance in the world.

Sorry to be glib, but this is easy: you eat too much. You could literally do three hours of cardio/day and gain weight if you increased calorie consumption to match it, which is easy to do. After all, many endurance athletes despite doing more exercise in a day than most do in a week find they have to consciously restrict calories to lean up for competition.

I will be starting week 6 tomorrow! I have lost 12 lbs since August 1st, not too bad considering my doctor said I was "morbidly obese". I keep up for that most part and slow down when I need to. when I can't do one of their moves, I will just jog in place to keep my heart rate up. It's been tough, but I really need to get this weight off, and so far this has been working for me
