I am at 33 pounds weight loss. The Fat Burning Machine has given me a program for a lifestyle I can sustain and still enjoy life. I like the stepped approach. I know this program works as I was loosing 1 to 1 1/2 pounds a week. I also stopped chewing tums for heartburn. If I stay away from simple carbohydrates and sugars I do not have the arthritis pain in back and hands. I like the miracle repeat intervals. I do them riding my bike to the gym and hiking up hills.
