What I did.
I ordered Focus T25 and didn't looked back. The first package came with two phases: Alpha and Beta. I eventually ordered the third phase, Gamma. What happened to Charlie, Delta, Echo and Fanta? I'm not sure.
I began Alpha back in November just before Thanksgiving. It. Was. Rough. I made it through all five weeks sweating the whole time. I didn't follow the nutrition plan...those changes came later. Baby steps, people. During those first five weeks I only changed two things with my nutrition: no more sugar in my coffee and I stopped stuffing myself
While completing the fifth week of Alpha I was unsure whether I was ready to move on to the Beta phase, which I expected to be more difficult. I repeated Alpha. This time I started counting calories. Womp, womp. I know, I know. Who wants to count calories? It's actually easier than you might think. I used www.caloriecount.com to help me, but I'm sure there are lots of options out there.
I was focused and I really made exercise and better nutrition a priority for the next many months. Thinking about how I fueled my body was a definite game changer for me. I finished up Alpha (for the second time), and then I moved on to five weeks of Beta and four weeks of Gamma (hybrid version). It turns out that I really like lifting weights, which were part of both the Beta and Gamma workouts
All I can really say is that I LOVED this program, and I definitely saw results. Do you want to see my results? Ok. Here you go...
