A few kids in my school have used it and gotten great results, so I don't doubt its effectiveness at all. But how long are the workouts usually? Do you need weights (and if so of which size)? And do you need to be relatively active before you start it? I've recently...

skrillexo asked: I am going to a restaurant with my family tomorrow, and I am trying to eat healthy, and not have too many calories, but many of the foods at this place have either tons of cheese, or a fatty meat, is there a way to know how many calories these things have?
