I have been using the evil 6 as a guideline to what I can and cannot eat while on ignite. In other words, I do not view the grocery list as a comprehensive list of ignite-friendly foods. I find the ignite recipes to support this practice. Your question is a common one though. I'd love to hear everyone else's thoughts!
Determining the best program for you has a lot to do with your current situation. 10 pounds can be easier to lose if you're more than 10 pounds overweight. However, if you're hovering close to your ideal weight, those last 10 pounds can be hard to shed! Age and metabolism can also play significantly into it. When I hit 35, my metabolism put on the breaks hard!
I had great results with cardio sculpt. The modifications are still challenging and they offer advanced options if you can take it to the next level.
When considering weight loss, its best to remember that diet plays a greater part than exercise. A couple of old adages are: 'You can't outrun the fork' and 'Great abs start in the kitchen.' Remembering this helps motivate me to eating clean. ~ok, maybe to eat clean 80% of the time ;) You should look into the ignite program.
I think the programs do a great job of diversifying the workouts. I've done cardio sculpt and have seen a major change in my physique - significant muscle gain. Its designed for weight loss too.
I've been using dailyburn for 4 months. My recommendation is to use a program through fruition. They seem to have devised a strategy in how they introduce each workout throughout the program.
I did inferno after cardio sculpt. I had to modify some exercises because I was either dropping form (not strong enough) or didn't have the equipment. I still saw intense results and came through the other side a LOT stronger.
I was just in a similar situation. I finished inferno (loved it and LOVED the results). I took a week off to do some running. I almost started inferno HR but was dreading the knock down butt-kicking workouts.
Prior to inferno, I did cardio sculpt (also loved the results there, although not as intense as inferno). I decided to go back to it because it was a more diverse program and I figured that would be less monotonous than re-doing inferno right away. It is also less rigorous than HR, which I was really feeling. ;)
To keep up my motivation and feel challenged, I purchased heavier weights to use. I find it funny how pumped I am to use a new set of heavy weights! I'll probably add an extra riser to the steps where needed as well.
Yes!! I have seen so many positive changes in my body since starting: my physique, strength, and endurance are all greatly improved!
I found there is a discrepancy among us users and even the daily burn folks in interpreting the "approved grocery list" as a finite list of approved foods vs. a grocery list containing approved foods. If we read the approved foods grocery list as the latter, than those recipes do fall within the guidelines of ignite.
I don't think any of the recipes include gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, artificial sweetener, or added sugar >10g per serving. Some people get thrown off by the use of cocoa or semi-sweet baking chocolate - which are within the ignite guidelines because of the low sugar.
Which recipes or items, in particular, are in the recipes that you do not think are on ignite?
I see Chipotle has a few selections that could be ignite-compatible. However, I'm not clear on whether or not rice bran oil is OK to have during the ignite phase. Any ideas?
Its not uncommon for me to skip days due to busy work and family schedules. Sometimes I swap my meditation day with a work out day to accommodate. Other times I will do two workouts to make up for skipped days. The latter though, requires one to be mindful to avoid injury.
After ignite, when you reintroduce the Evil 6 in the balance stage, you'll notice almost right away if you are sensitive to it.
For me, gluten makes me bloat. For my body, its a night and day difference after only a few days without it. Same with soy now - I almost immediately get headaches after eating it where I never did before. In short, if you pay attention to your body as you reintroduce during Balance, you'll figure out quickly what works for you and what doesn't.
Banana's are a no-no during ignite due to their high glycemic load.
Did anyone hear back from support on this? Today I burned 35 calories after my KIT workout. Just wondering if anyone had an update or ETA on a fix.
I sub weights for a medicine ball all the time. Works well for me.
The Cardio Sculpt pull up challenge has an alternative for dumbbell rows. Based on the 'average' score display screen, a lot of people are opting for rows.
Hope that helps. Good luck!
I just checked out Kind Bars ingredients online. There are several that do not contain dairy, gluten, or soy. The added sugars mentioned below add up to less than 10g per serving so you're OK. I eat Kind granola on ignite, but not all flavors are OK - you do need to read closely!
