I'm Andriy Y. and this is my story
What has happened so far on the program?
I was skeptical when I started the program, but everything went in align to what you described. Initially I allocated 3 months to try it out and I noticed changes much earlier.
I started program on March 27, but by May 27 I lost 20 lbs and got my body fat to 12-14% from 20%. It was a bit hard to change habits, but after about two or three weeks the routine become the way of life and things became much more easy.
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
Mike, as you know there are a lot of books on a market on a topic. For me it is more convenient to listen for the audiobooks during my commute to work instead of reading. That’s how I discover your book “12 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don’t Know You’re Making.”
I loved the content and the way you presented material, so I purchased Bigger Leaner Stronger (audio version) and, after listen to it, kindle version. I found the plan you presented in the book valuable and decided to give it a try
What do you like most about the program?
With help of the program I got results much faster compared to everything else I was tried out. So I would say, that’s a program that works and I love it for the fact it works. 🙂
What are three other benefits of the program?
Some other benefits I’d like to mention was that my mood became significantly better than before, I took only one sick day from work during last 3 month. I don’t know if it related, but my knees stops bothering me and I was able to run again. I want to continue the program further.
Thank you for answering my question on the forum, btw.
Would you recommend this program? If so, why?
No question, I’d recommend this program to anybody simply because it works. Maybe I slightly changing accents when I recommend the program by giving the diet even more credit.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
For me, food is the most crucial part of the program. I followed your recommendations very strictly and, maybe had only two or three cheat days for the whole period.
I tracked my calorie/macronutrients with an iPhone application and prepped all my food at home in advance. I didn’t take any supplements simply because I was able to reach my daily goal with real food.
