Why I Got Started

My health started to become an issue with a bad back, broken ankle, hernia, bad kidneys and liver problems from drinking and terrible eating habits.

I started with strong encouragement from my family and friends. My work in the gym started from there, and with help from a friend I started a nutrition plan.

I hate to make it sound simple, but I just simply quit drinking and started to eat right, not always perfect, but at least 5 times per day.

Of course, I worked by butt off, sometimes 2-3 times a day. The equation is simple, it's the execution and consistency that is hard.

My diet was a very mild ketogenic diet, and I do mean very mild. Carbohydrates were cycled in and out, depending on the needs at the time.

Suggestions For Others

Try to figure out what you want. Be healthy, be strong, be ripped. Set a main goal, cardio goals, mini goals, goals for that specific week and just go from there.

Be Healthy, Be Strong, Be Ripped.

Be in it not to impress others, if that's the case you won't last three months. Have consistency and a positive outlook in the gym and outside the gym.
