I'm Alice S. and this is my story
What has happened so far on the program?
I am 29 years old and in 6 months I went from 200lbs and 39% body fat to 142lbs and 16% body fat.
I followed the phases of Thinner Leaner Stronger while cutting on a 500 calorie deficit for about 5 months and lost 50lbs. Since then, I have been maintaining, but increased my workouts so I am still losing weight at a very slow pace while building more lean muscle.
I lost a total of 58lbs, 23% body fat, 33” overall, and I’m not done yet. I used to have serious problems with my back which initially made me worry if I was even going to be able to lift heavy, but my back has never felt better.
My bench press increased from 35lbs to 85lbs, my squat increased from 40lbs to 135lbs, my deadlift increased from 50lbs to 135lbs, and my military press increased from 35lbs to 65lbs.
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
Nothing kept me from buying the book. I like to try new things and unfortunately never stick with anything.
The book had good reviews, so I thought I’d give it a shot. It changed my life.
What do you like most about the program?
I like that it taught me everything I need to know in order to become successful with my weight goals and maintain them.
I fell in love with the training and the diet, and I will always be meal planning the way I learned in this program.
How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?
I had never thought about lifting weights, let alone heavy weights. Now it’s all I want to do. Nothing compares to the feeling of knowing that you WILL see results from what you’re doing.
The diet is the best I could have asked for – no restrictions and plenty of options. I don’t believe in any other program anymore.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
For the first time in my life, I feel comfortable in my own skin. I love my body, and I’m proud to show off my hard work. I no longer have issues with back pain and the headaches it caused.
I sleep like a baby and have enough energy to get through the day. I feel like this lifestyle change has given me a brand new purpose and I enjoy life more.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Follow the program, even if it contradicts some of what you thought you knew about diet and exercise! Skip the weight loss ads you see online…this is it! It works, and it works better than anything else.
My husband started the Bigger Leaner Stronger program at the same time with me and also lost 60lbs and 17% body fat. This program literally changed our lives!
