How Sarah Used Thinner Leaner Stronger to Lose 28 Pounds in Just 5 Months


"My confidence is through the roof and girls I once aspired to look like are now contacting me, asking what in the world am I doing to look like this!"

Sarah's Progress

What has happened so far on the program?

I started cutting at 146 lbs and in 4.5 months I lost 28 lbs but gained all the confidence in the world!  I am currently in the middle of my reverse diet right now, and then I plan to maintain.

My diet during my cut was high in protein, low in carbs & fat. During my reverse diet, I am adding 100-150 calories per week, mostly in carbs.

To answer the first question is hard, because so much has changed with me since beginning the program!

I have completely restructured my life physically, mentally, and nutritionally. I went through my share of struggles during my cut, but the end result has been SO worth it!

I have made serious strength gains! I could barely handle a 10 lb. dumbbell when I started but here are my stats at the end:

Bench Press: 90 lbs.

Squat: 140 lbs.

Deadlift: 155 lbs.

Military Press: 65 lbs.

What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?

I was disappointed by literally every program I tried in the past. I was skeptical when I first heard about the program, but once I got into the book, I was sold.

His program is backed by science and studies, which I still look back on if I’m struggling with something. That really hit home for me! SCIENCE BITCH! (Breaking Bad reference, not actually calling anyone a bitch).

What do you like most about the program?

I love that this program teaches YOU how to do YOU. I learned how to calculate MY OWN BMR, TDEE, macros, etc… and didn’t have to pay someone absurd amounts of money to do it for me.

In doing that, it made me understand things so much better! Other programs say “Eat this & lose 20 lbs” or “Do this and lose 3 dress sizes” but none of them are tailored to MY exact physical or nutritional needs.

The results have definitely been better than I expected. I was also glad to get advice from the book on supplementing! It was a game changer when I started Legion supplements.

How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?

Almost every other program I’ve tried involved crazy amounts of cardio and almost no weightlifting, and I still couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting the look I wanted.

As far as diets go, I would just starve myself and hope to lose weight (never happened). The gym is literally my favorite place to be now and I get plenty of food (even when I was in a cut!).

How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?

I was downright depressed before I started this program. I was never motivated to do anything, always feeling tired & sluggish.

My confidence is through the roof and girls I once aspired to look like are now contacting me, asking what in the world am I doing to look like this!

I have more energy than I did when I was 16  years old (and am 20 lbs. Lighter than I was then too!)

I actually got so motivated once I saw I had it in me to do this, that I started to get my finances under control too, so I paid off all my debt & started saving! Go me!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I would recommend this program to everyone. Big or small, young or old and man or woman. It WILL work if executed correctly, all you have to do is want it!

This program is great because it teaches you how to manage nutrition & physical activity at every stage in the game.

I would tell all the girls out there to hold on loosely. This will not happen over night no matter how perfectly you are doing everything, and that’s all part of the ride! Have fun with it!

Lastly, while cutting I used Legion Pheonix, Pulse (LOVE THAT GRAPE GOOD GOOD) and Triton.

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.
