What has happened so far on the program?

This program has been so much fun! I just can’t believe how easy it was to follow the exercise plan. When I read it, I couldn’t believe that I could be bigger, leaner and stronger just following that plan. On the other hand, this program reminds me a lot of my early days at the gym when I got my best shape. So once I read it, I said to my myself: Let’s try it. So I didn’t even believe that it would work, but since Mike was supporting this and saying that it was his program, I thought: He wouldn’t lie that much, it must be a good one. So I started following the book, the exercises and diet tips. The hardest part was dieting…at the beginning it was really bad, and I almost messed it up, but with discipline and dedication I kept on. I even had a 2 week trip and managed to follow my diet. After the second week following the program it became just like nature, it went on nicely and I had no problem following it, but I have to admit that I didn’t do the “cheat meals” instead I did the “cheat days” or even “cheat weekends”. I could be in in even better shape if I had done this “right”. Another interesting part and scary one is when he tells us to take a week off every 2 months. I just couldn’t believe that he wrote that, I thought… Man! This guy is full of it! But trust me, it works! At least for me it does. I took a week off and once I came back, I was stronger, believe me! But I have to say… I wasn’t a good guy when it comes to food during this off week. I met some old friends called peanut butter and cashews…

What do you like most about the program?

Its simplicity.

What are three other benefits of the program?

Discipline, feeling healthy, self-confidence.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

To everyone!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

By the end of 2011, I was in real good shape, I had leg veins showing up, abs veins, weighed around 215 pound with 9% of body fat. At this time I also was moving to a new city and thing became really bad. I got sick and was diagnosed with syndrome of panic disorder. This was devastating… it made me leave the gym, eat a lot and some other bad stuff. I ended up gaining weight quickly and I hit the top of 245 pounds, a UFC heavyweight, with 18% of body fat. I used to look at the mirror, remember the old days and think that I’d never get my shape back again. After a year, things got better, I went back to the gym hired a personal trainer and started working out. However it didn’t go well, the training plan really sucked and my performance was just acceptable. So I went on vacation for one month got to point 0 once more and was still thinking.that would never get my shape back. But…

I was coming back from vacation and at the airport I was looking for some books to read during the flight and then as I got in the library, I saw the book. That was when my things got serious. When my vacation ended, I got back to the gym without a personal trainer, followed the program and the results you can see.

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $199.

Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money.

That said, as most international customers spend about $200 with us each time they shop, this setup is a win-win.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.

Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
