Hi ,

I recently attended the American Fit Expo in Houston, where we had a Labrada Nutrition booth.  As I was meeting and greeting fans, handing out free samples of Lean Body and signing autographs, I met a very nice gentleman by the name of Kirk Lidgard.

Kirk told me about his journey of 6 1/2 months during which he had dropped 88 pounds, using a sensible diet and our Labrada Nutrition products. I was so inspired by this that I wanted to share his story. You’ll see his pictures below.

Kirk Lost an Amazing 88 lbs. in 6 1/2 Months!

What struck me about this was that Kirk had not lost his weight using an extreme diet or by cutting out all his carbs. He had used a balanced diet, that provided correct amounts of protein, carbs, and fats, much like the diet that we promote in the free 12-week Lean Body Transformation Guide. Kirk did not lose the weight in a short amount of time either. Even though his weight loss was significant, he accomplished it over a period of 6 1/2 months. In fact, this amounted to about 13 1/2 pounds per month or 3 pounds per week.
No small feat, but he was consistent.

Kirk told me that he started working out on a regular basis, and so has his wife. It just goes to show you that when you set a goal and work a plan consistently over time, the results can really add up. Too often we are looking for quick fixes and we fail to realize that it took us months and even years to get into the bad shape we’re in.

So this week, I want to encourage you to be patient and keep working your exercise and nutrition program to the best of your ability. Realize that it never happens as fast as you would like, but if you stick with it the results will come.

PS. If you are having good transformative results yourself, be sure to share your stories and pictures with us!

6 Ways That Sleep Affects Your Exercise

Do you ever feel like you’d give just about anything to get a good night’s sleep? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent survey* of nearly 1,000 Americans, sleep-deprived participants said they would gladly give up alcohol (#1 on the list) for the rest of their lives if it meant a lifetime of blissful slumber. Other sacrifices they were willing to make included foregoing social media, pizza, and TV.

Before you go clearing out your wine rack or deleting all your social media accounts, consider this: There’s an easier way to get better ZZZs, and it involves something you may already be doing. It’s regular exercise, and it can make all the difference when your head hits the pillow.

Samantha Wilson lost 15 lbs & 4% Body Fat

"I can honestly say that my emotional successes are equal if not greater than the physical successes I achieved through this challenge. Physically I am down 3 dress sizes, 15.4 pounds, and 4.4% body fat. This in itself is such an amazing feat and I couldn't be more proud. However, I have gained something much more valuable on an emotional level. I have regained my confidence and am starting to love the way I look again. More importantly, I am loving the person I am becoming in this new life style. I look forward to working out and meal prepping! Before the challenge I wasn't even sure if I could cook. Now I am making full meals and loving every one (even my parents love them!) and that is something that will benefit me for the rest of my life."
