8 for Hourglass

Ok, so you love an hourglass figure!! Well, you are not alone. In a recent survey, three quarters of women have revealed that an hourglass is the ideal figure!! They said that rather than wanting to emulate the stick thin figures of Kate Moss, most of them would prefer to have the figures of curvier celebrities like Beyonce and Kate Winslet. "8 for Hourglass" is a multipurpose app that leverages the new Windows 8 Store App platform capabilities to give you two main things, one will need to achieve an hourglass figure - Balanced workout and a Balanced Diet. The truth is, this app is not only about the hourglass figure. The World Health Organization, the National Institute of Medicine, the most influential and knowledgeable organizations when it comes to weight and health issues - have convened panels of experts to evaluate the accumulated scientific research on these topics and condense it into reports. We have embraced these reports, drawing from them and conducting extensive research of our own to develop this easy-to-use and simple-to-follow fitness application. We promote healthy weight loss. And for that, we have taken extreme caution in identifying which workout/diet are the most effective and nutritionally sound. This application’s approach to weight loss, fitness and healthy eating can not only help you make the right choices for improving your overall health but also help your weight-loss efforts. 8 for Hourglass goes beyond advising how to lose excess weight and offers diet, nutrition, health, beauty, fashion, happiness and fitness tips for a healthier lifestyle. It is often said that different paths can lead to the same destination, and this is never truer than when it refers to eating for healthy weight loss. Each person is unique when it comes to the foods that provide satisfaction, from preferred meals and times of day to dine, to food choices for sustained weight loss. Weight-loss success is all about finding a way to achieve the calorie deficit necessary for weight loss - that is, calories in versus calories out - without compromising one’s lifestyle and preferences. Our cookbook gives you the freedom to make your own choices while explaining the impact of each choice. Our cookbook, is a comprehensive collection of delicious and nutrition-conscious recipes.

Kept crashing on me when I tried to view videos. Granted I only looked at the yoga ones, but the pulsing icons were annoying so I didn't bother checking out the other features.

I wish you could control the volume of the instructor as well as the music, so one could listen to the music during the workout. Other than that this app is pretty cool

Love the workouts and all but it almost always crashes on me. I can never use it because 80% of the time when I choose a video it crashes. Also it would be nice if it could stop the screen from timing out.

Some of the workouts doesn't play. When I click the "bugged" workout, it closes the app

I would _really_ like this if the bodies of the girls did not CONSTANTLY move in and out like a cheap gif. Even when you open a video, recipe, or something from the top tab, one of 'em is in the background 'beating' and it's sooooooooo annoying. I'm going to have to uninstall until that's a feature I can turn off. Too bad, the rest of it was all right.
