Another suggestion is yoga and stretching exercises, this will help relax and lengthen the calf muscles.
I am down 18.2 pounds on the venus factor and am not exercising at all. In fact, what I read is that if you are not exercising now, you shouldn't start exercising until you get through the first 12 weeks or longer if you have more to lose. Because the program reduces your calorie intake, exercising burns the calories you are getting and can cause your body to think it is starving and stunt your weight loss by slowing your metabolsim. I don't intend to start working out until I am closer to reaching my goal weight. I imagine exercising will be much easier when I am not carrying all the extra weight.
Is there any way to download these exercise video's to a DVD. I don't love having to use the computer all the time.
I have to disagree with the last comment. The Venus Factor worked for both myself and my mom. I have lost a lot of weight over the last 10 weeks and I feel and look better than I have for a long long time. While my mom was suffering from diabetes and the doctor was amazed at the positive changes since she started the program. And all I see are positive comments here and on other forums.
We can all make up our own minds and I think it is unfair to tell others not to buy the program when it works for some women . I paid $47 for the Venus Factor program which covers both me and my mom and I think it was money well spent.
