Blast One Plan FAQ

If there’s anything we haven’t covered, please do get in touch.
1) A summary of the Blast One Plan
This is a 21 day fat-loss and fitness programme. Once you have paid the fee you will be sent, about 3 days before the official start of the programme, your Blast Pack. In this Blast pack is your eating plan and your first week’s workouts, along with a recipe collection, a measurement sheet, a goal sheet, a food diary and a training diary. You will be sent 4 workouts at the beginning of each of the three weeks of about 20-35 minutes long. There are three different levels (Level A Newbie, Level B Intermediate and Level C Advanced. See question 4 below). You follow the Blast One eating plan guidelines and you do your workouts. All this results in you losing fat, changing ingrained habits, becoming fitter and stronger. You will feel healthier. You will be able to ask questions anytime to the Blast leaders. Every day you will receive from Annie Deadman a freshly written original email. These will keep you motivated, entertained and will also educate you so you understand what is happening to your body, and why what you are doing works.
2) What happens during the Blast One Plan

Once you have paid the fee and thereby agreed to the Terms and Conditions, you will be sent a welcome email. Then, a few days before the official start of the plan you will be sent the Blast Pack (see question 1). We ask you to take measurements of your body so you can check your progress at the end. We also suggest you take photographs too… such a great way to see how you are doing! You can email the Blast leaders at any time about any questions to do with the plan, food, workouts, anything. You are also invited to join a closed Facebook group where you can share your experiences (and recipes and tips) with all the other members around the world.

3) What can you expect to achieve during the Blast One Plan?
You will achieve fat-loss and inch-loss. We don’t concern ourselves too much with scale weight (i.e how heavy you are). The more fat you have (and the more sugary your diet was before) the more fat you will lose on the Blast Plan. You will become fitter and your muscles will become firmer and you will be stronger. Other benefits are:

  • You will feel less bloated as the food plan you follow is very kind to your gut.
  • Your hair, nails and skin will feel different and better.
  • You will sleep very deeply.
  • You may feel calmer and more ‘in control’.
  • You will have more energy.
  • You may see a reduction in allergies such as hayfever and eczema.
  • You will an increased sense of well-being.
4) What are the workouts like on the Blast One Plan?
Each week you will be sent 4 workouts ranging from about 20 minutes to about 35 minutes. There are three levels to choose from. Level A is Newbie. These workouts involve strength work and all the work is low impact. Level B is Intermediate. The workouts contain strength work and there is cardio work which is low impact. Annie does the low impact version but demonstrates the high impact version if you prefer that. Level C is Advanced. You will need a pair of dumbbells (perhaps borrow them off someone!) and this means there is a greater variety of strength work. The cardio sections will show both the high impact as well as the low impact version. You will be sent all workouts and it is up to you to choose. You will also be sent a choice of warm-ups (around 5 minutes) and a cool down/stretch workout.
5) What is the Blast eating plan like?
The Blast eating plan works because you will be creating a non-toxic environment for your body. Some foods which traditionally aggravate the gut are omitted and you will be nourishing and fuelling your body with good normal food. You will be given all the instructions you need (including a shopping list) and you shouldn’t be hungry. You will be inspired by the Blast recipe collection, but you have the flexibility to cook your own food using the Blast guidelines. The food you will eat is good, unprocessed food which can easily be adapted into family life.
6) What is the level of support during the Blast One Plan?
Right from the beginning you can ask questions of the Blast team at any time. These will normally be answered in under 12 hours, depending on when the question was emailed. Every single day of the 21 day programme, Annie Deadman writes a fresh, original email to the whole Blast group. These may occasionally contain fact sheets so you begin to understand why what you are doing works. There is also a closed Facebook group offered to the members where they may share experiences. The Blast team will also post on here from time to time.
7) How do I sign up and what happens then?
To buy a place on the Blast One Plan, simply select your start date and click the Add To Basket button and follow the instructions. Read the Terms and Conditions and make your payment, then it is done! You will then receive a welcome email and a payment confirmation. Then, a few days before the official start date of Blast One, you will receive your Blast pack. See question 2.

About 3 days before the official start of the programme, you will receive your Blast Two pack.

In this email, you will be asked to provide to your Blast leader your height in cms, your weight in kgs and your age. This will enable your Blast leader to calculate your daily calorie quota plus your daily protein quota. It is up to you to provide this information. Without this data, your Blast leader cannot give you what you need to start the Blast Two plan. You will be asked to purchase a pair of dumbbells and have access to some digital food weighing scales. Advice will be given on this. You will be asked to provide a photograph of yourself without your face in the shot. A side and front and back view (all optional). You will also be asked to take measurements over various parts of the body using your Blast measurement sheet. You can email your Blast leader at any time about any questions to do with the plan, food, workouts, anything.
