I wouldn't suggest their weight loss plan. Ever. At all.
I WOULD suggest you cut out all sweets and MOST processed foods (I know that's a tall order) and instead of eating beef, which is a heavy meat, try chicken or fish. Spices are great for making food taste good. Lean, pure food is good, like apples, beans, cauliflower, the infamous Brussels sprouts and rice. "Hard" acids like lemon juice and vinegar help clean the digestive system out like a mini-detox, but they damage the enamel on the teeth if exposed for too long. Just take a quick swig.
Water is also vital for weight loss, and you should drink enough to not be thirsty, and drink pro-actively when working out. Be careful about drinking the water when not working out, though, as water poisoning can cause you to be sick and it will throw off your body's chemical balance for burning fat.
Be sure to balance cardio and weight training. Maintaining muscles will burn calories on its own, and cardio will strip excess fat the fastest. The muscles will also give the illusion you are better defined than you actually are, so there's an aesthetic purpose.
The biggest safety concern is joints, ligaments and tendons. A lot of people will try really hard and then just fall over and hurt their ankle. Joints are weak spots and exercises should be done carefully with low reps and weight in the beginning to make sure they adjust to the extra work. Ligaments and tendons are fragile if you haven't moved this way often, and you may not be flexible enough to do some movements which will cause both of them to be damaged as well as your muscle.
Set your own pace, for the most part. If you jumping lightly is all you can do: do it. Just make sure you don't push yourself TOO hard, and make steady, moderate improvements over time instead of burning yourself out with too rough of a workout.
