Why I Got Started

My quest started 58 years ago, when at the age of 7 I got fat. I have struggled with my weight all my life. I would take off 20 pounds and then put it back on plus a little more.

How I Did It

Last year I saw an ad for the Trimspa Million Dollar Challenge and figured "what the heck" so I joined the contest. I would diet and exercise for 12 weeks.

My Sample Diet

Diet Books My diet was a work in progress. I worked on it as I went along. I have read over 20 books on the subject and applied what I have learned. The true information was obtained from doctors who backed up information with facts. The best information was not from books on diets for weight loss, but from books on diets for health.

    Breakfast:

      Eggs or salmon, oatmeal,melon, berries, 16oz of water.

    Lunch:

      Salmon or tuna or turkey, salad with olive oil dressing, melon, berries, 16oz of water.

    Snack:

      Chicken, an apple, some nuts, 16oz of water.

    Dinner:

      Fish or turkey or chicken, berries, 16oz of water.

    Snack:

      Chicken, an apple, some nuts,16oz of water.

    Each day I would eat a little less. When I started a salmon filet was good for one meal. after 12 weeks 1 filet would make 3 meals.

My Training

My exercise consisted of power yoga, light weight lifting and walking stairs. I did my stair walking in the AM on an empty stomach. This assures me that my body will burn fat for energy. My weightlifting was performed after work in my basement. I would do cycles of 10 non-stop exercises for between 10-to-15 reps each.

One hour before bed I would do 100 rounds of the Sun Salutations. Any good book on Yoga will show different variations.

I won my age group at the Trimspa contest in the Bahamas. It was one of the best weeks of my life. While in the Bahamas Alex Goen the owner of Trimspa recommended that I take up bodybuilding, so I did.

When I got home to the Buffalo area I made contact with Marian Giallombardo, the publisher of Sports and Leisure Magazine. She talked me onto entering the 2007 Northern States Super Natural Bodybuilding Contest.

I went in knowing nothing about a bodybuilding contest but came home with the 1st place in my class. I have fallen in love with bodybuilding and will be in more contests next year.
