About The Author Dear Friends,

Hello, and welcome to Transformation, a book that I originally released in 2008, and am now
re-releasing with updated information on supplement science, weight-loss, and new training
recommendations which will ultimately help you get where you want to go faster and more
effectively! A lot has happened since the original release of this text, although I continue to
use my passion for supplement science, nutrition and fitness to help others achieve their
weight loss and body transformation goals, its now from a different angle. I originally did
most of my consulting and work from the chair of a fitness center owner and nationally recog-
nized physique athlete. Now, I have since evolved from that position into the role supplement
formulator, fitness and nutrition messenger/evangelist and what I would like to refer to as a
Peoples Expert! Someone who understands the challenges that real people face with their
fitness and nutrition programs and what truly can help them in their quest for their best body
ever! You will find some of the Transformation text un-modified from its original 2008 form,
but in other areas there will be slight modifications in the program and supplement recom-
mendations based on whats new in the world of nutritional science and weight management.

CHAPTER 1 | A TRANSFORMATION MINDSET

Chapter 1 | A TRANSFORMATION MINDSET

You may wonder what mindset has to do with transformation. Actually transforma-
tion is a mindset. Thats all it is. If you can remember that simple fact then you are
half way towards your goal. Most people tend to start a program, get through a few
days, and then just give up. The problem seems to be that they never had a clearly
defined goal to begin with. They never truly had that vision to drive them home.
Your mindset, your attitude and your belief in your ability to accomplish what you set
out to do will absolutely determine whether or not your outcome is a success.


My wife Marina and I have competed nationally in Mr. and Ms. America contests
throughout the nation. Every time I sat down and prepped her program I would tell
her, The most important thing you can do is go on stage and act like youve already Your mindset, your
won. What, she would say. How can I act like Ive won if I havent? Then I attitude and your
would tell her, Marina, you must have the attitude of a winner, you must have the belief in your abil-
mindset of a champion. You can not get on stage or try to change the way you look ity to accomplish
or feel without truly already having a positive mindset. Your mind is the key to
unlocking the door to the future and if you dont start seeing yourself in the body what you set out to
you want or accepting the grand prize then you will always fall short. My recommen- do will absolutely
dation for anyone who starts a transformation program at Pure Line Nutrition is to determine whether
first of all start by writing a thorough story of where they are and how they got there. or not your out-
This story will start to give you a little emotion to fuel your desire and get your will come is a success.
power and spirit jumping into second gear. You see, we have to stir up emotion
first. If that emotion doesnt get moved then we are unlikely to move towards our
goal. When we sit down and write down everything that has happened to us over
the last 3-5 years and really start to get down and feel that point and place where
we started to let go of our body something magical happens. Yeah, we start getting
sad and frustrated with our past, but we also start to get a little upset, we start to
get a little angry and you know what, thats good! That is exactly whats going to
push us to transfer that energy into improving ourselves through working out, eating
right, and thinking positive.

When you sit down to write your story, dont leave anything out. I want you to write
down every twist and turn that enters your mind. You will be surprised how easy the
words will flow. Find a place thats quiet, a place where you can sit uninterrupted
for a good 30 minutes and start digging. You know what happens when you dig?
You start to make space to put something better in! You mentally remove some of
the garbage thats clogged between your ears. Negativity, fear and the inability to
see yourself better than you are today are thrown out and we leave a wide open
space for transformation. So go ahead sit down take a couple of sheets of white
paper and write. Ive had guys come up to me after this exercise and say, Aaron, I
sat down thinking I wasnt going to write a thing, and lo and behold an hour later I
was still writing. You literally can not believe how powerful this is just do it and you
will start to see your emotional tipping point rise. When this happens, get ready,
transformation is making its way into your life, finally!

Step 1 | Sit down in a quiet area where you will be undisturbed for 30 minutes.

Write down where you are today and how you got here.
What was that point in your life that caused everything to change?
Was there a point when you started putting your health and fitness on the
back burner? Be honest. Nobody will see this but you!

When I was a kid my mom used to put pictures on the refrigerator. Shes going to
kill me for saying this by the way, but its the truth. She used to place a picture of a
figure she aspired to have on the refrigerator door. There I was getting some Oreos
out of the fridge while staring at this 1980s glamour queen. Its no wonder I feel
guilty every time I reach for a bag of cookies! Thanks mom.

5
No, but really I didnt understand her strategy until years later, but its really a mat-
ter of visually putting your goal in a place where you can see it on a daily basis and
sub-consciously taking the steps to get there. By this time youve probably already
written down your pain, or your story. This pain or emotional story is the why. Its
the reason for going after the transformation. Now its simply time to decide what.

What is it exactly that youre going to shoot for? How will your body look in 12
weeks? Is it a shape that you have already been in? Is it a completely different
look from what youve ever looked like? Maybe you want to tone up your arms and
lean out your hips and thighs. Guys, maybe you want to put a couple inches on your
guns and peel the fat off your waist. Whatever it is you have to visually be able to
see it. So, whats the easiest way to do this? Simple, cut out a picture of yourself in
your ideal shape, or a picture of the body youre aspiring to work towards and put it
somewhere you can see it. The refrigerator might freak out your kid, so you might
want to put it on the bathroom mirror or in your office desk somewhere. Wherever it
is, make sure its somewhere you can see at least twice daily. This makes a huge
difference in your subconscious and gets you to accept the reality of what you will
be accomplishing.

When I was getting ready for the 2004 Nationals Bodybuilding Contest I cut out a
few pictures of my favorite bodybuilders and put them on the mirror in front of the
sink I used to brush my teeth. For some reason I really liked the clean lines and
classic look that his physique represented. I never realized it until later, but one of
the reasons I took second in the nation that night had to do with the mental image I
fed my mind three times a day. I truly believe that it had an impact on the way I was
training my physique and the way I was mentally geared. You have to be able to
conceive it, believe in it and ultimately you will achieve it. This method of what I
refer to as visual goal realization is so much more powerful than just writing down
what you want to accomplish. I believe the reason is because the human mind
thinks in pictures. We dont think of a car as c-a-r but we see the picture in our
minds of a car. It works the same way with the body we aspire to create. See it,
See it, See it, and it shall be yours.

The most important part of your transformation mindset is keeping positive and
never passing negative to anyone. Did you know when you tell someone something

Step 2 | Make a mental image based on your goals.

Find pictures that resemble what you want to look like.

Cut them out and place them somewhere you can see throughout the

negative your brain doesnt see it as something you verbally give away, but instead
interprets it as something you are telling yourself? Thats why it is so important to
monitor your self talk and your talk with others throughout your transformation.

Any time you let negativity in the form of anger, worry, anxiety, fear and frustration
enter your mind, you open the floodgates for mental roadblocks. If someone says
something to you about your transformation goal that is uncalled for just flush it.
Now, I know that there are those flushes that dont seem to get everything quite
down, but do your best to flush it, and move on.

The way you train, the way you eat, and your ability to succeed over the next 12
weeks has everything to do with staying positive. You know, it seems like this has
become the biggest challenge in our society because there are so many negatives
coming at us on a daily basis, whether it be from the paper, the news, gossip or
other people who wish to comfort you with what they heard. All of these things

6
are detractors from your ability to improve yourself. For you to improve your body
youve got to improve your mind and you have to have the ability to channel all of
the nonsense out.

Nobody said it better than Arnold Schwarzenegger when he said, No matter whats
going on in my life, I dont let it affect my goal. If someone steels my car while Im
training well to baaad! I have to trraiin arrrrms. I will take care of it laaater.
Wow, talk about positive focus, although this may sound extreme, you have to re-
spect what kind of a role it has played in his life! You must stay positive throughout
your days of this challenge. You can not afford one single day of negativity. That
stuff will eat up your gains or your losses and fester until it causes you to get wor-
ried, angry and or depressed. Once we see one of these three deadly horsemen
show up, they usually end up causing a splurge on sweets and comfort foods to
take away the pain. So again, we have to stay on top of our attitudes. So please do
whatever you have to do to keep negative people, places and things out of your life
for the next 12 weeks. You know what, Ill tell you something. After 12 weeks, re-
gardless of your transformation challenge outcome, you will learn to love living with-
out all that extra junk in your life.

I have three things that I do on a daily basis to help me stay focused and positive.
Id like to share them with you in hopes that you too will benefit from them during
your transformation challenge. I call them The Golden Three.
Three If you commit to do-
ing these three things daily during your 12 weeks you will literally see your life
change.

The Golden Three | Get your day started on a positive note.

1. Give yourself 15 minutes every morning to get centered, pray/


meditate and realize you dont have any problems, just chal-
lenges. Buy a daily mediation book or inspirational book with
quotes or passages to reflect on every morning.
2. Decide to do one nice thing for someone today. Before you leave
the house, sit down and write what youre going to do and for
who, you wont believe how this changes your life.
3. Make a decision to do one positive thing for the environment
today.

Step 3 | Stay positive, focus on the good and tune out the negative.

Get in tune with the Golden Three. They will help you stay positive throughout
the day.

Chapter 2 | THE NUTRITION PRIMER

A major focus of your 12 week transformation program is learning how to integrate


what I call lifestyle nutrition
nutrition into your daily plan. Many of us have learned to eat
for pleasure and not for fuel. Some of us use food as an escape and without even
realizing it have become accustomed to eating poorly and have allowed our eating
habits to affect our health and lives. The United States as a whole continues to con-
sume more calories, gain more weight, and become increasingly unhealthier simply
because food is our source of entertainment and pleasure. Its what most of us
turn to whether were depressed, happy, or celebrating. Diet and nutrition without a
doubt will continue to become one of the most important areas of health care in
years to come. You can look around every day and see the effects of poor diet in
your co-workers, friends, family, and in the children at the local playground. A clear
lack of knowledge about what food is and how it should be used is evident.

So what do we do, where does that leave us? Ive studied nutrition, diet strategy,
and the effect food has on the body for over ten years and although all approaches
have possible benefits and sometimes risks, there is simply one thing that contin-
ues to surface and that is the simple adage; you are what you eat. Simple, simple,
simple and how we have begun to get so far from this I do not know. So before we
start introducing anything completely new into your life lets just make some funda-
mental changes which will bring about profound changes in as little as 10 days.
The first thing we need to realize is that food is our friend. We dont need to shy
away from it and we certainly dont need to eat less of it. For some reason we are
fixated with a dietary philosophy which tells us that eating less will help us lose
more weight faster. There is little doubt that you will lose weight using this philoso-
phy but what ends up happening is what I refer to as the skinny fat person syn-
drome. You see by eating less you certainly will lose weight, but the kind of weight
you will lose is more important than the weight itself.

By limiting calories you will sacrifice lean tissue or muscle. So in the end you will
have shrunk in all areas but still will have maintained an extremely soft appearance
and you may have even added body fat. This is not what you want to do. Your goal
should be to lose body fat while maintaining muscle integrity, creating the appear-
ance of a tight healthy body which epitomizes health and fitness. I cant tell you
how many times one of our transformation clients say, I cant believe how much
Im eating and how much energy I have. I dont feel like Im on a diet, it just
seems like Im making better choices and losing fat in the process. One of the
fundamental parts of transforming your body is learning lifestyle nutrition. You
dont want to be stuck on a diet because you will end up having to finish or end the
diet and then what? With lifestyle nutrition you are setting yourself up to change
your eating patterns and your eating style. Over 12 weeks you will be able to radi-
cally change your patterns and view of food. This in turn will create long term trans-
formation.

MEAL FREQUENCY

How Many Times Do I Need to Eat?


One of the most important concepts you have to familiarize yourself with is what is
referred to as meal frequency, or how many times per day you fuel your body.
Most people tend to either skip breakfast or have a very light snack and then go
without eating for much of the day because they tend to get caught up in work and
other affairs. The problem with this type of lifestyle is that your body says, I dont
know when youre planning on feeding me again, so I might as well just hold on to
the calories in this meal for as long as possible. This type of metabolic shift starts
to promote fat storage, lethargy, unstable blood sugar levels and sugar cravings. To
eliminate this and put your metabolism on the fast track to fat loss we have to start
fueling your body periodically throughout the day. My recommendation has always
been every 2.5-3 waking hours. By doing this you keep your bodys metabolic fur-
nace turned up and consistently running. This produces the best state for fat loss
and will also eliminate your blood sugar from climbing up and down possibly leading
9
to carbohydrate and sugar cravings. The cravings that result from blood sugar in-
stability are the silent killer, usually at night. However, by learning to adjust our
eating patterns and follow a more frequent eating schedule we can start to elimi-
nate these late night killers.

TIP: Most of my friends tend to get really bad cravings in the wee hours of the night.
This is their tipping point and before you know it, the box of cookies has been de-
voured by the cookie monster. The reason this happens, especially while on low fat
diets is because most people try to keep their meals too clean. Lets say you have
a chicken breast or two, a cup of rice or baked potato and a salad as your last meal.
Now, the meal was relatively clean but the problem we run into is that its almost
completely void of natural fats. Essential fats like those found in nuts, avocados
and flax oil help act as a buffer and cause your meal to be absorbed over a longer
period of time. This prevents the rebound you get later at night when you once
again are in carbo craving mode. If you get absolutely insanely hungry after 10
pm try having an apple with two tablespoons of all natural 100% peanut butter.
This is a great late night snack that will be absorbed much differently from your typi-
cal sugary snacks and it also tastes great!

FOODS

What Should I Eat?


For so long we have been taught to focus on calories, grams of fat, grams of carbo-
Reconstructive Foods hydrates and the numbers behind the food. Simply stated, the calorie is the name
given to the amount of energy a food contains. Foods that are higher in calories

have more energy content than those with lower calories. Have you ever seen those

Essential Fats on the other hand contain EFAs, (Omega 3, 6, and 9s) which are
Dates good for your heart, skin, hair, and overall well being. Essential Fats, which our bod-

Bananas sparingly through the day and even better just to take 1 tbsp. of natural flax seed oil
daily with one of your meal replacement shakes. Another alternative is adding 1
tsp. of all natural peanut butter to your meal replacement shakes.

TIP: Sometimes when you start bringing down your fat intake from where you previ-
ously were you will notice your skin gets dry and your hair gets brittle, especially
women. This is because your body is not getting the essential fats it needs. I highly
recommend you use a potent Essential Fatty Acid Product like Pure Essentials at
least 2 times per day. This special Essential Fat Supplement is fortified with CLA
which is a type of fat that has been clinically proven to help burn body fat!

During the purification phase of the program you will be eating 3 small meals and 2

www.ThePureLine.com.

Detox Fluids [ Water ]


Water is the cornerstone of health. It is required for not only all functions of the
human body, but also proper digestion and accelerated fat loss. This nutritional
lifestyle program recommends that you drink at least 1 gallon of pure spring water
per day. Women less than 110lbs. can start with gallon of water per day. Al-
though some people use sugar free zero calorie powders to add flavor to their wa-
ter, I dont recommend it and suggest you only use them occasionally. Water should
be consumed throughout the day while working, eating, working out, and at night
before bed.

Detox Fluids [ Other Beverages ]
During the first 10 days you will need to eliminate all carbonated and caffeinated
beverages. You may use unsweetened iced tea and hot tea with splenda or stevia

took out during the first 7 days, for example condiments, caffeine, sugar free Crystal

meal pattern you started during the 30 day detox. If you feel good with this amount
of food daily then dont change anything. The most important thing for you to learn
is to be comfortable with your appetite and the amounts of food youre eating. If for
any reason you feel like youre not eating enough or are getting extremely hungry, I
want you to add an extra meal making your total daily meal intake 6.

Meal Times [ 6 Meals Per Day ]

7a - 8a 10a - 11a 1p - 2p 4p - 5p 7p - 8p 10p - 11p

Usually larger men or those who are interested in adding sheer muscular size will
add a sixth and even seventh meal but it all depends on your individual require-
ments. For the most part however people seem to be interested in dropping fat and
building lean muscle tissue. This is easily done with five small meals. Ok, so lets
take a look at what a typical days eating pattern might look like.

Meal Plans [ Day 1 - Sample Diet ]

Egg Whites or Egg Beaters [ open hand portion size, cooked ]


Meal 1 1 Serving of Oatmeal with ground Cinnamon and Splenda [ one
closed fist portion ]

1 Chicken Breast [ open hand portion ]


Meal 2 1 large baked potato [ closed fist portion ]

Meal 5 ries cup ]
1 tsp. of natural peanut butter
[ Blend with water and ice ]

Note: For Convenience you could easily replace Meal 1, or 3 with a Whey Factor
Pro Plete Meal Replacement Shake.

Something I really want to make clear is that your meals do not have to be bland
and boring. You are free to use condiments, spices and anything else that can help
bring color and taste to your food. Remember, you have to be creative, if not the
lifestyle will eventually become a diet and thats the last thing we want! More and
more research leads to the fact that people begin to get bored with their food be-
cause it lacks color and tastes bland. So spice it up.

For example let me give you an alternate menu that incorporates the same types
of food as above but with a little flare from the kitchen;

Scrambled Egg Whites with Pico De Gallo

different things and please email us your recipes so we can share them with others
who are on the same path to self-improvement.

Grocery Shopping

The most important part of grocery shopping is that you go to the grocery store with
a plan. Dont just get hungry, look in the cabinet and say hey, we need groceries,
and head off to the store. Thats a certain recipe for disaster as your carb cravings
will definitely get the best of you. Have you seen the cookie aisle lately? Its abso-
lutely ridiculous; God knows Id never make it through there without a pack of dou-
ble stuffed Os. On the other hand, going to the market with list in hand of your
foods for the week makes it so much easier to stay on your program and maintain
consistent results.

The Ultimate Grocery List for Transformation

I like to paste this Plan on my refrigerator and whenever its time to go to the
grocery store, I just look at the list and see what is missing from the fridge. This
is an easy way to keep yourself on target when you head to the store. Just put a
check by the items you need and you will find yourself in and out without any of
the extra stuff that can add unnecessary inches around your waist.

Let me give you an example of how some of my clients usually start their week.
Aaron, Im really going to do it, Im going to start eating clean and make the right
choices. Im determined. This usually is the remark of the eager beaver who
gets through Monday and even travels through Friday night, but then something
happens. Usually it starts with a dinner on Friday night and before they know it, two
or three glasses of wine have passed and a plate of pasta later theyre sitting in
front of a heaping brownie a la mode thinking what just happened?

A week which ends up starting well usually finishes on Friday night and rolls into
Sunday night when they profess their loyalty to the diet again and start over on Mon-
day. Now, this doesnt sound too bad, I mean they are eating right the majority of
the time arent they? Take a look at this, if we start our bad choices on Friday night
and continue through Sunday we have taken three days off from our program. Cu-
mulatively at the end of the month this is almost 15 days which have been lost. So
we could say that weve maintained our program for 50% of the time and have not
maintained our program 50% of the time, netting us zero actual progress. Interest-
ing isnt it?

19
So in order to really affect change in our bodies it is absolutely vital that we only
have 1-2 FREE MEALS. Notice that I didnt say free day. In fact I would rather
someone have 2 FREE MEALS per week than one entire free day? You can sched-
ule these meals on the days of the week where you know you will be going out, at-
tending a party, or special event. I usually recommend that people choose Wednes-
day night and Saturday night. Leaving space for these 2 free meals will allow you
the flexibility to be normal and still see great progress in your transformation. Even-
tually you want to try and limit yourself to one free meal per week. Doing this will
help you break through some of the boredom and will actually cause a slight accel-
eration in your metabolic rate which will in turn help you burn more fat. Ive also
seen that this causes a type of psychological benefit because now there is some
positive pressure to get refocused and maintain adherence to the program. On
the other hand Ive got friends who tell me, Aaron, I dont even want a free meal
because once I start I know Im done. Listen, you know yourself better than I do so
make wise decisions. In the end remember that this is about a lifestyle approach to
Eating Out nutrition and its also about continued progress rather than absolute perfection.
[ Rules to Follow ] We are all human and Im certainly not one to turn down grandmas cookies. Be
smart, plan your free meal accordingly and when in doubt try to make what I refer to
as Better Bad Choices. An example of this could be going for some sorbet instead

Chapter 4 | SUPPLEMENT FOR SUCCESS

Now, since youre serious about really changing your body, youre certainly serious
about what kind of supplementation youre using. Our Pure Line Supplements rep-
resent the very next level in independently lab tested nutritional products for only
the purest and most potent formulas available. Im going to briefly explain how
some of these natural supplement work, and how they can help you reach your
transformation goals even faster. Im going to start with a basic supplement strat-
egy that should be used by everyone no matter what category youre in and then
move into some advanced supplement strategies that will help fire up your fat loss
and boost your muscle building to another level. Some of these stacks are so
potent that people will accuse you of taking illegal fat burning products like Growth
Hormone or even Anabolic Steroids if youre a male adding muscular size. The won-
derful thing about the Pure Line products that Im going to recommend is that they
are completely 100% natural and safe.

SUPPLEMENTATION

Pure Form Multivitamin/Mineral


The first product in our arsenal is the Pure Form Multivitamin and Mineral Formula.
This well designed soft gel formula is so much more than just a vitamin. It incorpo-
rates an energy matrix with royal jelly, garlic oil, COQ10 and other proprietary ingre-
dients to help you stay healthy and well throughout your transformation. Vitamins
and Minerals are referred to as micronutrients and play a role in the absorption of
the macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) without them you could only
be absorbing a small percentage of your nutrients. These are a must.

Pure Form Essential Fatty Acid


The Pure Form EFA is a state of the art EFA product which helps maintain optimum
health and promotes fat loss, skin health, healthy cholesterol levels as well as de-
creases in joint inflammation. EFAs are absolutely essential for overall health and
wellness and they should be used throughout your entire transformation program.
As the name infers, they are essential to overall well being and because they are
not naturally produced by your body you must get them through supplementation.

Pure Cleanse Herbal Formula


Again, this is the detox and cleansing formula which I would use at the beginning of
your 12 week program. It promotes internal cleansing, health, wellness of the di-
gestive track and increases your ability to absorb your nutrients. Its powerful blend
includes everything from Acidophilus to Aloe Vera and its ingredients have been
used for centuries to promote optimal health. Many of us tend to have the bloated
stomach look, especially after eating, due to internal stagnation of undigested food
and old fecal matter. (Sounds Gross Huh?) Candida Albicans, a yeast organism,
may also be heavily populated in the colon leading to further bloating of your stom-
ach. If you experience gas, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation and you feel like
you always have a beer belly, then you may need to thoroughly detox.

Pure Cleanse ANF Drink


The Pure cleanse ANF formula is taken in the morning and contains a powerful
blend of antioxidants, energizers and cleansers. This products unique formula
takes Aloe Vera, Nopal from Mexico and Flax Seed Oil and combines them all To-
gether to restore balance, health and wellness to the body. The results from this product
taken daily are absolutely incredible. Ive seen a person lose weight, increase their overall
health and reduce the bloating that comes after eating a meal or before a womans monthly
cycle. If youre a male this is a great product to use after pro-hormone or creatine cycles to
increase the uptake of your supplements during your next cycle. Also, if you find yourself
craving sweets, sugary foods, bread, starches or other high carbohydrate foods or have used

23
antibiotics for extended periods of time, then you may need to perform an intestinal clean-
sing program with ANF. Ive used this program for months at a time and believe me, it
works. You dont have to walk around bloated anymore.

Pure Boost

Pure Boost like the name infers is a Fat Loss Amplifier. Many times, our trainers find that
their clients have experienced fat loss plateaus after taking stimulant based fat burners for
years and they cannot get the same results they used to. This is largely in part to low adrenal
and thyroid out put. These to glands are very specific to the promotion of fat loss and when
their health is compromised can decrease metabolism efficiency and effectiveness. If youve
been under stress or not eating enough protein then your body has adapted a natural star-
vation mechanism, where it may have slowed down the metabolism, and internal enzymatic
processes including digestion, elimination and fat burning. The Pure Boost formula uses a
proprietary ingredient matrix which has been designed by scientists to help increase the over-
all health of these two primary glands. It is taken for 40 days as a boost to the metabolic
rate. After 40 days it is discontinued for at least 2-3 months before starting again. Pure
Boost is the sister product to XP2G which is a fat loss supplement. When combined Pure
Boost and XP2G will burn up to 75% more fat than just a fat burner alone.

XP2G & XP2G P.M.

XP2G and XP2G PM are both fat loss products which are highly recommended to start aiding
in the release and shedding of stored body-fat. XP2G is a stimulant based product with a new
form of ephedra that is both safe and effective at increasing core body temp. (which helps
burn calories) and increasing energy levels while aiding in the suppression of appetite. This is
probably one of the most effective products in my line for burning fat and I highly recommend
it. Use the XP2G PM formula at night before bed to continue the fat burning effect while you
sleep. Adding these two supplements to your program will help increase fat loss by over 60%!

Testobolan

Testobolan is a new supplement which I have just introduced and it represents a state of the
art pro-hormone formula which naturally increases testosterone levels. Guys, as we all know
testosterone is the magic bullet when it comes to putting on lean muscle tissue and losing
body fat. As we get older our testosterone levels start to decline and as a result everything
starts going south especially the midsection. Testobolans state of the art formula will help
rebuild and enforce optimum testosterone levels so that you can effectively burn fat, increase
muscle tissue and feel the energy enhancing benefits that come with maximized testosterone
efficiency. I have seen men get on Testobolan for four weeks and put on at least 9 lbs. of lean
muscle and lose 12 lbs. of body fat while exercising moderately and following a healthy nutri-
tion program. If your goal is lean hard muscle with little body fat then Testobolan should be in
your arsenal.

Whey Factor Proplete

Whey Factor ProPlete is a whey protein blend. It is best used as a meal replacement powder
or a post-workout formula to ensure the body gets 100% pure whey protein. The protein
source used for Whey Factor is completely natural and is void of Lactose (which means no
bloating, constipation, etc.) and has no artificial sweeteners including aspartame. The sweet-
ener used, which gives it unparalleled flavor, is Stevia. This makes for an incredible tasting
highly concentrated instantized protein source which can be blended or shaken in a shaker
bottle. Most people add their favorite frozen fruit or dried oats to make it a complete meal.
Whey Factor is ideal for men and women of all ages who want to lose fat and maintain lean
muscle integrity. Whey Factor has also found a special niche in the area of post-op bariatric
surgery because of its ease in digestibility and purity. This should be a foundation product in
your supplement stack.

24
So now that you know what they are, lets figure out how they can be combined to help you
reach your goals faster.

With that being said lets look at some supplement combos that will definitely help you reach
your goals quick.

most important aspects of your transformation, that when used simultaneously, will
help you drop fat and maintain lean muscle tissue.

stress. For example, lets say I rubbed my hands together really hard. What would
gen ]: An exercise
happen if I did this for lets say, one week? I would start to develop calloused hands
where the oxygen de- wouldnt I? This is the same thing that happens with the muscular system. As you
mands of the muscles stress it with more and more resistance you will cause it to adapt. The adaptation
are provided by the cir- will result in a tighter, more firm and strengthened muscle that is capable of respond-
culation of oxygen in the ing better to additional stress the next time you workout. Of course the muscles abil-

distance cycling and your diet, supplementation and recuperation ability.
aerobic activities are
examples of Aerobic Ok, so what does that have to do with fat burning and body shaping. Well, If I want to
Exercise. help you burn the most amount of fat possible over the next 12 weeks I have to get
you to understand that it is absolutely imperative whether male or female to start
training with weights. Now, heres where most females will interject and say, No, I
dont want to lift weight because I get too big, I know my body. Let me say this, it is
completely unrealistic for females to get muscular and big. Women simply dont have
the right hormones for muscular growth. God did not design you this way and thank
God because females tend to look better firm, tight and toned with moderately low
body fat, not big and um hairy.?

But, you must lift weights because in actuality studies have proven that fat loss is
greater with resistance training than with cardio work. Why, simple, your body has
to recover from the workout you put it through. Your legs have to heal, your arms
have to heal, your back must heal and so forth. In order to heal, the body has to burn
calories over the next 24 hours to ensure recuperation. Your body is turning on the
after burners and making sure that there is complete recovery in all of its systems.
In contrast, when you simply go for a jog or hop on the elliptical for 40 min you only
burn calories during that time period. Most people burn about 500 calories over 40
minutes and feel great. But if they would have worked out with weights for 40 min
28
and then did 20 min of cardio they would have not only burned 500 calories but
would have continued burning calories for the next 24 hours. We call this
metabolic activity. Muscle is metabolically active and is much more apt to burn
fat when exercised properly. The higher the metabolic activity, the more fat we will
burn.

Cardiovascular Training [ Aerobic ]

Now, lets talk a little bit about cardio or (aerobic with oxygen) work. Cardio in-
cludes activities like jogging, swimming, biking, martial arts, stair stepping etc.
While doing these activities your body has to consume air to keep the muscles go-
ing. Cardio work will contribute favorably to your transformation, but it is overrated.
What, I can hear the group fitness enthusiasts cry! Have you guys ever seen a
soft aerobics/group fitness teacher? Of course you have almost all of them are
because they spend most of their workouts doing cardio work and not resistance
work. Spending hours upon hours doing cardio will burn fat, but it will also burn up
muscle tissue just as fast giving us that once again dreaded skinny fat person
look. But wait, cardio is great for the heart right? Yes, cardio is great for your heart,
but so is resistance training. The bottom line is cardio work alone is not enough!

So lets talk optimal fat burning/muscle shaping transformation workouts. What


would be the best route for us to get the body weve always wanted? Without a
doubt, a combination of weight training and cardio work with emphasis on resis-
tance training and your nutritional intake will provide the most effective body trans-
formation experience.

7 Day Pre-Transformation Workout [Where to Start Your Workout ]

The first thing I want you to do is a 7 Day Pre-Transformation Workout.

7 Day Pre-Transformation Workout


[ Remember, you would do this for one day then the
next day do 20-30 minutes of cardio activity. ]

Overhand Pull Downs to the Front

Standing Barbell Curls

Abdominal Bench Crunches

Incline Bench Press

Seated Dumbbell Press

Standing Tricep Extensions

Leg Press Machine

Lying Leg Curls

Seated Calf Raises

During this 7 day period you will do the weight training exercises on the last page
with minimum rest between each (about 1 minute). This is a circuit type workout
which will help start preparing your nervous system and muscle endurance for the
weeks to come. You will train with weights for one day, then do cardio the next and
so forth until you complete 7 days. All you have to do is one set of each exercise for
about 10-12 repetitions pause catch your breath, then hit the next one, and cont-

29
inue through the list. Eventually you want to do 3-4 complete Rounds of all the
exercises in a row.

Dont worry if you get sore or feel tired during the first few days. This is completely
normal. Remember your body is starting the adaptation process and your brain is
going to start sending signals to your body to strengthen, and tone your muscle tis-
sue. Just be patient and let it happen. Try and keep your repetitions slow and easy,
dont jerk the weights and dont try and see how much you can lift. I cant tell you
how many people Ive seen who start gung-ho and find themselves injured before
they ever see results.

After youve finished the 7 day pre transformation workouts, its time to dig in and
get busy. I along with my personal training team have designed different workouts
for both males and females at various experience levels to help you through your 12
week program. Now, the most important thing I want you to remember is that on
this program you will be doing some sort of physical activity daily.
daily That means you
will either be lifting weights or doing some kind of cardiovascular training everyday
and even on weekends.

Myth vs. Fact


[ Before we get into the workouts themselves, I want to debunk a few common
myths about training. ]

Myth: There is never enough time in the day for me to workout.


Fact: You must make a radical shift in your priorities over the next 12 weeks.
Realize that this is your one shot to transforming your body and becoming a bet-
ter you. Also, start to think of training as a deposit system. The more deposits
you put into your fitness account the less likely you are to have unexpected ill-
ness and other diseases that have become common with age. Start to see the
time you spend in the gym as your time. Nobody can take this away from you,
not your boss, or your husband or wife. (Wait a minute that is my boss!)

Myth: Im Fat, Ive always been fat. I just dont have the genetics to be lean.
Fact: This is truly the biggest cop out today. Everyone has the ability to drasti-
cally change their body and look better than 80% of the people walking around
today. Why, because nutritional science and advances in training methods have
shown us what truly works and how we can minimize the amount of time it
takes to create a true transformation. The only obstacle we truly face is our-
selves.

Myth: If I eat right I probably dont need to exercise


Fact: Eating right is a start, but to truly change the shape and look of your body
you must train with resistance and incorporate a cardio program to help in the
fat burning process. Food is probably the biggest single factor in your transfor-
mation, but you still have to have the other elements to create a true transfor-
mation effect.

Myth: I walk a lot at work, thats enough exercise


Fact: OH BOY WHERE DO I BEGIN. Look, unless you are unloading ice from a
truck for 1 hour straight with no rest then there are no excuses. Walking around
at the warehouse or through the hospital is nowhere near the amount of physi-
cal intensity necessary to elicit a true body transformation.

TRANSFORMATION WORKOUTS FOR MEN

Fat Loss Beginner Workout [ Men ]

This workout is made up of super-sets and tri-sets. Using these methods will optimize
results. Keep little rest time in between sets, probably 15 to 20 seconds. Remember
to follow your cardio routine in combination with this workout. The workout is done by
grouping exercises in three (commonly referred to as a tri-
tri-set), remember not to rest
Weight Training until all three exercises have been complete. Once all three exercises are complete

Once you have mastered the beginners work out you can move into the advanced
workouts. We are still using the super-sets and tri-sets, but now we are incorporating
33
cardio into the workout. The cardio will take the place of the third exercise. So we
will do the two exercises that are listed below and finish the set with a cardio option
of your choice. Remember to increase resistance according to your condition. If it
becomes to easy TURN IT UP. We must always challenge ourselves and improve our
physical and mental condition, only then can we hope to reach our full potential.

TRANSFORMATION WORKOUTS FOR WOMEN

Fat Loss Beginner Workout [ Women ]

These workouts are designed using Super-Sets (doing one exercise immediately
after another) and Tri-Sets (doing three exercises in a row). Using these methods
will optimize results. Keep little rest time in between sets, probably 15 to 20 sec-
onds. Remember to follow your cardio routine and do cardio on your non-training
days. Remember not to rest until all three exercises have been complete. Once all
three exercises are complete rest for about 2-3 min and continue the routine. Then
move to the next group of exercises.

Once the beginners workout becomes easy you can try the advanced workout. We
are still using super sets, but now we are incorporating cardio in the workout. The
cardio will take the place of the second exercise. So we will do the exercise that is
listed below and finish the set with a cardio option of your choice. Remember to
increase resistance according to your condition. If it becomes to easy TURN IT UP.
We must always challenge ourselves and improve our physical and mental condi-
tion, only then can we hope to reach our full potential.

Types of
So when it comes to cardio what should you be doing. There are two schools of Cardiovascular Training
thought when it comes to cardio. The older school of thought centered around
this idea of long marathon sessions on the bike, treadmill or other piece of cardio
torture. This idea, which by the way is completely grounded in scientific fact, is
STANDARD CARDIOVAS-
based on the concept that your bodys muscular system stores a certain amount
of fuel (glycogen) in it. In order for the body to start burning fat you would have to CULAR TRAINING: Do-
exhaust the amount of glycogen, or fuel, in the muscle first. Once the glycogen is ing any type of cardio
gone the body turns to an alternative source of fuel, principally fat for the remain- training at a consistent

Now when using a system like this the first question I normally get is how many HYPER STATE CARDIO-
beats per minute should my heart rate be at? I have never been a huge fan of VASCULAR TRAINING:
counting beats per minute because there are so many things that need to be Doing any type of cardio

FAT BURNING ZONE


[ How to figure out your fat burning zone ]

220 - Your Age (.70) = Fat Burning Zone

[ Example ] 220 - 32 yrs. old (.70) = 131

The Fat Burning Zone for a 32 yr. old is 131 BPM (beats per

Try using a polar monitor, or see if the cardio unit youre using has hand held
sensors. This will automatically pull up your heart rate on the digital panel in

Take your pictures on Saturday

Ok, so thats the normal way to do cardio, but the results that we are trying to pro-
duce are anything from normal. In fact, what were trying to produce are those
results not typical that we see at the bottom of before and after pictures right? I
mean we want some absolutely astonishing results and this will require a much
more aggressive and progressive cardio approach. Enter what I call Hyper State
Cardio.

Hyper State Cardiovascular Training [ New School Style ]

Hyper state cardio is about taking your cardio and fat burning potential to the next
level. This approach is for you, if you have been doing the typical fat loss cardio
sessions for way too long and are stuck at a point where you can see absolutely
zero progress. This is also for you if youre really interested in maximizing your fat
loss potential in the shortest time possible. Now a word of warning, you will be
pushing yourself way beyond what you may be used to, so I recommend that if you
have not been doing any cardio at all, then start with the above program for a few
weeks before even attempting to move into Hyper State. Ok?

For the rest of you let me give you a little background on Hyper State. Over the
years Ive worked with numerous physique athletes who needed to get their body
fat % extremely low. Were talking single digit low like 5 and 6 %. Most of these
athletes had been doing some form of cardio during the year and a typical
incremental and gradual time increase cardio program like the one I went over
earlier would never produce the dramatic results necessary for truly remarkable fat
loss. Thats when it required we become a little bit more creative in our approach to
cardio and figure out how we could increase the intensity, burn more fat and more

58
calories in a shorter period of time. The results were ridiculous, although the hu-
man body typically loses 2lbs of body fat per week; we were seeing results in the 3-
4lb range and without any sacrifice in lean tissue. What does this mean? There is
a better way to accelerate your fat loss potential via a Hyper State Cardio Session.
Now, there are several ways to do this but the basic system involves increasing your
cardio output for a few minutes and then dropping it for a few minutes. Its the
hills or intervals that will increase your cardio output to the level that your body
will reach in and pull from deep within the fat stores of the body for fuel. Lets look
at an example of how we could implement hyper state cardio with the most effec-
tive cardio piece, the stepper.

Stairclimber Hyper State Session


[ Hyper State Cardiovascular Training Program ]

Instructions [Select manual program, enter your weight, set for 20 minutes.

Choose a very moderate intensity (incline) level like


5 or 6.
Minutes 1 - 5 This will vary depending on where your cardio capac-
ity is, but you can always gauge it by figuring out
your 75% BPM.
BPM at about 55% during this first leg.

Increase intensity (incline) level by 3 points.


Minutes 5 - 10 From level 5 to level 8.
BPM at about 70%.

Increase intensity (incline) level by 2 points.


Minutes 10 - 12 From level 8 to level 10.
BPM at about 80%.

Decrease intensity (incline) level by 2 points.


Minutes 12 - 15 From level 10 to level 8.
BPM at about 85%.

Increase intensity (incline) level by 2 points higher


than previous high (10).
Minutes 15 - 20
From level 8 to level 12.
BPM at about 85%.

Decrease intensity (incline) level by 4 points.


Minutes 20 - 22 From level 12 to level 8.
BPM at about 70%..

Increase intensity (incline) level by 4 points.


Minutes 22 - 25 From level 8 to level 12.
BPM at about 90%. and finish.

Of course you are going to have to adjust the intensity levels depending on where
you are at in your training, but you get the overall picture. Another way to do this
which may be more understandable is the following:

59
Treadmill Hyper State Session
[ Hyper State Cardiovascular Training Program ]

Instructions [Complete 4-5 Sessions per week]

Minutes 1 - 10 75% of max BPM.

Minutes 10 - 15 85% of max BPM.

Minutes 15 - 20 90% of max BPM.

Minutes 20 - 30 80% of max BPM and finish.

Again, here we used the same system and increased our level of intensity gradually
with the intentions of increasing our overall output over 30 minutes and burning
more fat in the process.

In the last example Im going to give you, Ive set up a Hyper State calorie burning
cardio workout, but this time instead of alternating intensity, Ive simply alternated
cardio options going from moderate to average and then high intensity.

Multiple Cardio Type Hyper State Session


[ Hyper State Cardiovascular Training Program ]

Instructions [Complete 4-5 Sessions per week]

Minutes 1 - 10 Moderate walk on Treadmill at a minimum of level 6


intensity (incline).

Minutes 10 - 20 Elliptical workout at above average intensity.

Boxing: bag work on Heavy Bag.


Use gloves and dont try to hit the bag hard but in-
stead just pop it with quick and fast punches.
Minutes 20 - 35
Try to complete 1 minute rounds while resting 1 min-
ute in between. If and when you can work up to 15
minutes of active rounds you will be in some pretty
incredible condition!

Any of the above cardio programs will work and if you choose to go with hyper state
cardio, I recommend that you only use it a maximum of five times per week. The
rest of the days stick to traditional cardio methods. Its extremely intense and com-
bined with your strength training could tax your system to the point where you over
train so please proceed with enthusiasm but also with caution.

One question that always comes up about cardio is, When is the best time for me
to do my cardio? Theoretically, the best time would be first thing in the morning
when you are on an empty stomach. Your body will be low on fuel and will switch to
fat as an alternate source of energy much faster than at other times during the day.
Combine this idea with XP2G and your fat loss will be literally off the charts. This
doesnt mean that its the only time to do cardio, in fact if you find morning cardio
sessions unbearable or impossible then do them immediately after your strength

60
work in the afternoon, and never before. This will help give you the best transforma-
tion result possible.

I usually find that the first couple of weeks are the hardest for most people, but
once they are able to get used to waking up early and doing their cardio first thing in
the morning, it becomes more of a necessity than a burden. Your body seems to
feel alive with energy after doing cardio and your brain is definitely functioning at a
much higher level. If you can make a definite commitment to doing cardio at least
3 x per week your going to see great changes, but if you can make a commitment to
following the cardio prescription outlined above your in for a whole new look. Get
excited, its about to happen for you. Finally!

Principle of Time Training [POT] Training [ The Key to Ultimate Muscle Growth ]

Ok, this section is dedicated to those muscle heads out there that could care

muscles with beautiful separation and fullness. [ Definition ]

Most of the guys out there and some of the gals have been wondering what the true
secret to putting on quality tissue is. We see the glossy pictures of bodybuilding and
fitness athletes gracing the covers of magazines and we usually justify the look by The amount of time that

is based on the amount of muscle fibers recruited during an exercise. For example
if you picture your muscle cut in half and you saw a circular picture of a bunch of Xs
and Os it would look like the following: [ Example ] If youre

hausted than usual.
The Principle of Time is a term that I use for the amount of time that muscular
tissue is under tension. A muscle will truly accelerate in growth based on this prin-
ciple. Its kind of a misnomer to hear that someones lifting weights instead of
lowering weights. In fact if more people concentrated of lowering weights you
would see many more impressive physiques in weight rooms across the world. The
reason we tend to focus on lifting weights or the concentric portion of the repetition
is because its easier to hoist, fling and power up a weight than it is to hold weight
under tension for 4-6 seconds in the eccentric or lowering portion of the rep. Hu-
mans have a remarkable ability to find the most efficient ways of doing things with
the least amount of pain. In our strength and body building training we have ac-
complished this through our focus on getting the weights up and down quickly
avoiding the pain associated with the downward or upwards in the case of a pull
down, negative motion of the resistance. If you truly want to build impressive mus-
cle tissue in the shortest time possible then you should try and implement the
principle of time training system into your workouts immediately. However, let
63
me warn you that this can be an extremely traumatic type of training if youre not
ready SO BE CAREFEUL.

When I was in college, my roommate decided he wanted to go to the gym with me. I
remember I said, Are you sure you want to do this, you havent worked out in
years. My roommate said, Dude, Im tough as nails its not anything I cant han-
dle. Ok, then lets go work arms. I remember we used strictly POT training for the
next 45 minutes and the next morning I heard a yelping sound coming from the
other bunk. Kind of like when my dog gave birth! Whats wrong? I said. My room-
mate answered, I cant move my arms, call someone quick!

Although I can laugh at it now my roommate was in severe pain for almost a week
and if he would have been employed by a company that required any kind of labor,
he would have been out of a job. So be careful, Principle of Time Training works
in a big way, but its also grueling on your body and mind. In fact, I recommend that
you try it out with one exercise per body part. Use it for your first core exercise as
this is the one where you will be able to maximize its effect. You will also be able to
go a little heavier during this first exercise which will work perfectly for Principle of
Time Training because you can actually lower about 50% more weight than you can
lift. Dont believe me, try it. But for Gods sake please use a spotter.

Now the basic premise you will follow while using Principle of Time training is
to slowly lower the weight instead of just letting it drop. For example if youre
working chest then you probably start with some type of press. Instead of just going
for your usual heaviest weight, instead go for a weight thats about 25% lighter
and concentrate your focus on lowering the weight to your chest for a count of six
seconds. (Six, five, four, three, two, one and lift!) As it comes down to your chest
you will have to push it up quickly and youll find that it wont be as easy as you ex-
pect because your muscle tissue will be more exhausted than usual. I want to em-
phasize that this type of training is best done with a spotter because the weight be-
comes heavy fast. Focus on bringing the weight down, or up in the case of a lat pull
down, in this fashion for a total of six repetitions and then go for four or five normal
speed reps to finish the entire set. Remember; dont do this for every exercise for
that muscle, just the meat and potato exercise you start with.

When using this technique for legs, its best if you start with Principle of Time
training with your leg extensions. Slowly lower the weight in the fashion I described
above and then squeeze up slowly. Do this for six reps and then finish with four or
five normal speed reps. I recommend doing about four total sets in this fashion
before moving on to your other exercises which you can do at the normal tempo.

Principle of Time Training will definitely increase your size, strength and over-
all muscle quality quickly. Be selective about which days youre going to use this
system and try and restrict it to days where your energy levels are high and your
supplementation and nutrition are at peak levels. You will also find that you may
require more recuperation time than normal. So, Post-Workout, take a 30 minute
nap and make sure and take 2 scoops of Whey Factor mixed with 10 oz of apple or
orange juice.

Increasing the time that your muscle is under tension is a sure fire way to transform
lagging body parts and maximize the fullness of each muscle belly. Keep your form
strict throughout any movement you employ and watch as you start to see almost
chemical like gains appear 100% naturally.

Known by a few different names (lipoic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and thioctic acid),
this supplement acts as a enzyme for different reactions in your body, one of which
is called glycolysis, which is the process of converting blood sugar or carbohy-
drates to energy. It does this by supporting the mitochondria in the cell which of
course is the powerhouse of each cell and helps to produce energy in the muscle.
Studies show that alpha-lipoic acid can help anybody from type 2 diabetics (those

a problem with the utilization of blood glucose, otherwise known as insulin insensi-

and processed carbohydrates which literally cause sharp increases and then sud-

which aids in the muscular uptake of glucose. This means the sugar is stored as

Chapter 11 | THE INSPIRATION BEHIND
THE TRANSFORMATION

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

This is the final chapter in the transformation guide and its also one of the most
important chapters. During every journey there are those times that we just want to
give up. There are those mornings that we ask ourselves, Why am I doing this?
Moments come upon us like thunderstorms and we find ourselves carrying the
weight of the world on our shoulders. It doesnt matter who we are or where were
from we all share in the challenges of life because in the end were all in this thing
together. Each one of us is in some way connected and the true measure of our
self worth is in helping others become more. These final stories are but a few of the
most incredible transformation stories in our files. Ive gone through and found the
ones that I thought may strike a chord deep in everyones life. So when you get to
that point in your journey where you ask yourself why, and you start to feel yourself
wanting to give in and quit the fight just remember these people did it, and so can
you.

Mrs. Villarreal [ Lost 4 Dress Sizes in 12 Weeks ]

When I decided to take the 12 wk. transformation challenge, I saw the chance to
lose a couple more pounds. Since I had already lost some weight I figured what
other way to get some motivation but a little competition. Its been about 7 years
since I had gall bladder surgery. I had my gall bladder taken out and I was sup-
posed to limit foods high in fat but I didnt. The fact that I have no gall bladder
would cause my body not to be able to breakdown the fat I was taking in.

Since I didnt listen to my doctor, I ended up ballooning to 256lbs at a size 22. I


saw myself so big and I couldnt believe I had let myself go to that extreme. I was
always depressed and I hated shopping for clothes because nothing ever fit. I
would end up going home with nothing because I was just too fat. I would cry and I
didnt see how my husband wouldnt say anything.

During the first few months of my transformation I lost 50 pounds, right then I knew
that anything was possible and it changed the way I thought. As time went by I lost
a little at a time and then this year I saw the challenge which has literally trans-
formed my life. I have always loved a little challenge and I think thats what I
needed. I know I reached a goal I never thought Id reach. I went from a size 15 to
a size 8 during those 12 weeks. I was planning to go down to a size 10 but ended
up hitting a size 8.

Now, I can go to the store and pick out anything I want without trying on a bundle of
clothes and worrying about them not fitting. I would consider my weight loss a great
success. I lost plenty of pounds and inches. The biggest motivation came from my
husband. My friends were also supportive but my husband was everything. I have
to say that if you dont have the support of your spouse, then things are kind of
hard.

The day I started my transformation I told my husband about it and he told me that
he would help me. He started by helping me change my eating habits. The first 2
weeks were tough, but after that everything was so much easier. I started to learn
how to eat and it became a lifestyle for me. I took XP2G and it helped me out a lot
but I think the biggest push came from my diet.

One of the obstacles I wanted to overcome during the 12 weeks was to stop being
so insecure about my body. I was always shy about changing my clothes in front of
others; even in front of my husband and now I have been able to be more comfort-
able about showing of my body with the weight loss. I know for a fact that my hus-
band sees that and now hes happier tool.

As far as my self confidence it has gone up drastically from how I felt about myself
when I first started. I use to walk around with my head down not making eye con-
tact with others. My personal life has changed a bit as well. My husband and I had
great intimacy but now its gone up to a whole new level, but I suppose that
changes when you see yourself sexy and beautiful. Now my husband cant keep his
hands off me. I can say that Ill never go back to eating the way I used to. In total
Ive lost over 100lbs, so Im a whole different person on the inside and out. Im
happy to say that because of the challenge so many things have changed in my life
only making it better.

Mr. Cote [ Lost 45lbs. and 4 Pant Sizes in 12 Weeks ]

Watching my dad battle cancer and 8 mini-strokes in the last 3 years as well as my
wife battle breast cancer inspired me to change my lifestyle. I realized that the two
people nearest to me were in great physical shape and that was the reason they
were able to fight these life threatening diseases. Here I was just turning 50, over-
weight and drinking way too much. I have a herniated disc that doctors said
needed surgery. I took this opportunity to make drastic changes in my lifestyle.

After entering the challenge I started to see my weight drop by the day. I was able
to play Ice Hockey at a much better level after only a few weeks of exercise. The
constant compliments on how great and fit I was looking made this twelve weeks go
by pretty fast. When one of my old employees saw me 8 weeks into the challenge
and commented that I had found a way to reverse the aging process, I realized this
was all worth it..

The success I had was visual and psychological. I lost 45lbs, down from a size 40
waist to a size 32 waist and from XL shirts to Medium shirts. People at the gym
would tell me, Youve got the legs of a 25 year old. I have literally been taken
back to a point I never thought possible. The supplements I used on my journey
were Whey Factor Shakes, XP2G, Pure Essentials, Pure Boost and Rush XS.

I now know what it feels like to set a goal and achieve it. This is the first time in my
life that this has been possible. I have set goals for work and for retirement know-
ing that I can achieve them. On a personal note I can go out and not feel like I have
to eat and drink everything in sight. I never knew what it felt like to be in good
physical shape. I now have a great appreciation for someone that competes at any
level and feel blessed that I was able to change my physique in such a short time. I
also feel that I have learned enough about nutrition and exercise to be able to main-
tain this lifestyle as well as help those around me change theirs.

Mr. Richards [ Lost 12lbs. of Fat and Gained 14lbs. of Muscle in 12 Weeks ]

I was inspired to transform after having had back surgery over one year ago. I had
been involved in an automobile accident that complicated the back injury. My doc-
tor had me on muscle relaxers, pain medication and anti-inflammatory medicines. I
hadnt worked out, or exercised in over a year and a half. Nothing was helping me
get better or solve the back problem. I started reading information about abdomi-
nal strength, back, and overall muscle strength and felt I needed to go another
route to get in shape and get off the medications. I set a goal, visited PureLine Nu-
trition and decided to take the challenge.

I noticed a big improvement in my overall health, body, and energy level after my 2nd
week of training. My strength increased, my abs got stronger, and my energy level
is very high. The biggest thing Ive noticed is that my back has completely recuper-
ated and healed itself.

Today Im in the best shape Ive ever been in. I lost the body fat I wanted, gained
the muscle I wanted and my self confidence is at an all new level. Im ready to con-
tinue building my body better at 52 than I have at 51. My co-workers, family, and
friends all noticed the change. Everybody wants to know what I have been doing or

71
what kind of diet and exercise program Im on. The compliments I get from girls I
dont even know has been a tremendous ego boost! Ha Ha!

But the biggest thing has to be that before my transformation I was contemplating
selling my Harley Davidson. I was having trouble handling it, holding it up, backing it
up, and riding. I didnt have the necessary strength for riding since my back sur-
gery. Now I ride just to show my guns without any problems. I have more strength
in my legs and upper body than I have ever had. Im excited about starting my next
goal.

Mrs. McNallen [ Lost 20lbs. and 9 Inches in 12 Weeks ]

I ultimately transformed for myself. I was tired of feeling old and worried that when
my 3-year-old daughter had children of her own, I wouldnt be able to play with my
grandchildren. I knew I was on the road to some of the same health problems that
my mother has, and that I would need to take some drastic, life-changing steps to
reverse that.

My biggest motivator during the 12 weeks was the reflection I saw in the mirror and
the reactions I continued to get from everyone around me. The teachers where I
work began to get inspired, one by one, to make some changes for themselves. By
the end of this school year, over half of the teachers on staff had lost weight and
were excited about getting in shape and being healthier. When you motivate those
around you to that extreme, it is humbling, because it makes you realize just how
much influence our actions and attitudes have on others.

Success cannot be measured by a single goal. It is important that several goals be


established because there are many factors in living a healthy lifestyle. For myself, I
have lost 20lbs, over 9 inches, gained muscle definition in my arms and legs that
sometimes surprises me, and shrunk myself out of a wardrobe. But, the most in-
spiring by far, is the increase in stamina and energy that I have when I play with my
children, and the self-confidence I have gained everywhere I go. Self-confidence
affects the way I interact with my students, with my husband and with everyone I
come in contact with. It is definitely worth turning down those brownies in order to
hold my head high and keep a smile on my face.

Throughout the challenge I used XP2G and PURE BOOST, when my daughter wants
to play on the jumpoline I am excited about going out with her instead of sending
my older son to join her. My children have noticed that I dont come home and col-
lapse after school. Instead, Im ready to go out and ride bikes or take a walk. At
school, I have lots more energy when I teach and my students have responded en-
thusiastically to my willingness to run around and play with them on the play
ground. I now longer feel old and believe that I can make a huge difference in my
familys future, just by developing new, healthy habits.

I used to believe that as women get older, we would naturally assume that role of
middle-aged soccer mom and dress in much more conservative and frumpy fash-
ions. I had lost my love of shopping for clothes long ago and settled for what made
me look less fat. Now I cant wait to go replace the clothes I was wearing with
smaller, much more attractive styles. Im not even forty yet, and I now have no in-
tention of accepting anything less than the attractive, sexy woman that my husband
tells me I am.

Mrs. Estes [ Lost 20lbs. and 7 Dress Sizes in 12 Weeks ]

A little over 2 years ago, my husband and I said our I dos. Since then, Ive strug-
gled with a steady weight gain. Not just was I struggling to get into my jeans, but
there was that emotional struggle as well. Although, my husband never complained
and my aunts always commented on how weight gain was inevitable after getting
married, I still felt disappointed with myself. I have never had that trim model phy-

72
sique that lay spread out on magazine covers, but I have always considered myself
physically fit.

Oddly enough when I started my first transformation I received many negative com-
ments. Many times I heard, a new diet, how long is this one going to last? or
thats just bird food. The fact that so many people didnt comprehend that it was
possible for a person to make a choice to change their body and their life was what
really drove me to keep going. I chose to live a new lifestyle. And with that lifestyle
came the commitment to no one but myself.

Once I tuned out the negatives, the only real obstacles came from me. I knew what
I had to do and how it had to be done. All that was left was work and it wasnt easy.
Turning down snacks and staying away from restaurants wasnt easy but I was on a
mission. Whether it was that extra cardio on the weekend or adding more weight to
the machine, it became routine, and I found myself living it.

Everything changed in 12 weeks, my professional life, my energy levels, and my love


for life. I dont start off the day sluggish, nor do I end it with utmost exhaust. And I
will be candid, in my personal life; the area most affected is in the sex dept. Both
my husband and I have noticed that the sex has not only become much better.. But
a lot more frequent! (That alone was worth the change)

I am still far from being where I want to be physically! The difference now is that I
dont feel disappointed with myself, but encouraged. I now know that the physical
goal I have for myself is not unimaginable, but attainable.

Mr. Torres [ Lost 14lbs. of Fat and Gained 8lbs. of Muscle in 12 Weeks ]

The one thing that inspired me to transform was that I was tired of waking up in the
morning and seeing a very unhappy person and for people to stop making fun of
me. I had a few friends who would support me through my transformation but for
the most part the majority were always drinking and smoking. It made me realize
that my lifestyle had affected who I hung out with and what influences I had made
my own.

I kept my supplements basic using Whey Factor ProPlete, Branch Chained Amino
Acids and XP2G and I saw phenomenal results. My back and my legs grew like
never before and I would literally see changes on a weekly basis. My personal and
professional life has changed drastically. Because of my new energy level and drive
I made asst. manager at my place of work. My new body gave me the confidence to
talk to girls and I even have a girlfriend now.

I guess you could say I have become happy. I feel that I have found myself and I am
very thankful for it. I have to say that taking the challenge has been one of the best
things Ive ever done in my life.
