350 Pounds Lost and Counting
Jesse Shand’s Incredible Weight-Loss Journey
Boise, ID - July 16, 2015 - Imagine not leaving your house or seeing your friends for years. Imagine not bathing in nearly that long because your body had grown so enormous that it could no longer fit in the shower. That’s where Jesse Shand found himself in 2013.
The 26-year-old found himself weighing close to 700 pounds. He spent much of his day playing video games and trolling the Internet. This life of unhappiness led to extreme negativity, which then would ultimately lead to his 300-pound weight loss.
Jesse’s transformation started by accident. He wanted to get a rise out of the bodybuilding types and so he posted a thread on the Bodybuilding.com forum titled, “Ask the fattest man on the forum anything.” He also posted pictures of his then tremendously obese body. He waited eagerly for the backlash. Instead the forum members wanted to help Jesse. Together, Jesse and the other members devised a plan to help him lose weight and get healthy.
Jesse made his transformation public, using the Bodybuilding.com forums as a sort of digital diary. To this day Jesse’s transformation journey remains one of the most popular threads.
The support from the forum members, coupled with small changes to his diet, made all the difference. He recalls that dinner at one point would normally have been composed of eight chicken quesadillas and an entire pack of cheesy-flavored rice, but one night he willingly opted for seven quesadillas and only half the pack of cheesy rice. For someone who was used to eating a certain amount, these changes added up significantly.
As Jesse’s physical fitness improved from his initial concerted efforts, he continued to challenge and push himself. After graduating from walking indoors to walking outdoors, Jesse began to work up to walking 5 miles at a time. When that wasn’t far enough, he got himself a bicycle. Soon, he had shed enough weight to slide in behind the wheel of his car and drive for the first time in many years. The biggest game changer arrived in the form of a gym membership, which some forum members helped him get. Jesse quickly found a new home there. Racquetball, weightlifting, cardio, basketball, swimming—you name it, he did it or tried it.
To say that Jesse’s newfound love of fitness changed his life is an understatement. In many ways, it saved his life. “I started going out and being social again,” he says. “I joined a poker league and have made new friends. I took my mother to go see a Broadway show—all kinds of things I was sure I would never get to do again!”
With Jesse’s weight-loss success thanks in large part to his amazing support network, he urges other aspiring transformers to seek out support.
“Having yourself surrounded by like-minded people helps you develop good habits and learn new things,” he says. “The encouragement you give each other really can help you on days when your heart just isn’t in it. And those days will come. Don’t face them alone.”

2015 Bodybuilding.com $200,000 Transformation Challenge Winners Announced
Boise, ID - June 2, 2015 - This January, Bodybuilding.com — the Internet’s most-visited fitness website - kicked off it’s fifth annual Transformation Challenge. With the largest prize to date, the $200,000 contest attracted an astonishing 57,327 entrants from all around the world. The male and female winners each took home $80,000 in cold hard cash. And for the first time in the contest’s history, a “People’s Choice” prize was awarded.
The annual 12-week challenge was designed to motivate and incentivize participants to achieve their health and fitness goals. Motivated and ready to rock, this year’s winners dropped a whopping 115 pounds, which equated to a loss of over 40% body fat. Overall, participants in the challenge shaved nearly 35,000lbs from their waistlines. Of those who entered the challenge, 474 of those who could be classified as obese finished the contest at a healthy weight.
“Our biggest competition is the couch and we want to beat it in a big way,” said Bodybuilding.com CEO and founder, Ryan DeLuca. “We want to empower, facilitate, and cultivate positive change. It’s our mission to fight obesity and disease, bad habits, poor health and most importantly, the couch. We are here to push people to reach their peak potential,” states DeLuca.
With so many participants in this year’s challenge, picking the overall male and female winner was a daunting task. A team from Bodybuilding.com combed through thousands of profiles to discover two individuals that stood out from all of the amazing transformations: Chandler Camden of Park Hills, MO, and Nina Nam of Santa Monica, CA. You can check out their epic reaction when we surprised them with gym bags full of cash here: $200,000 Winner Surprise Video.
2015 Male Winner, Chandler Camden:
After serving his country for 14 years, Chandler ballooned up over 250 pounds since his honorable discharge. He battled with his weight and was tired of all the yo-yo dieting. It seemed like every time he would lose some weight he would put it all, if not more back on. “I was pretty much sick of how I looked and felt. I decided to lose weight and managed to lose about 70 pounds in one year. Then things in my life started going downhill, and once again, I found myself in a yo-yo situation,” commented Chandler.
His motivation came from his wife, “On January 5th, 2015 I got married to my wife Erin, and I knew she deserved a better me.” Erin encouraged Chandler to enter the Bodybuilding.com $200,000 Transformation Challenge and together they devised a program that would keep him on track for the next 12 weeks. Chandler states, “I threw myself mentally and physically into my transformation with everything I had. I was constantly adjusting my plan to ensure progress. I became more self-motivated as time went on due to the positive changes I was experiencing both physically and mentally.”
In just 12 weeks Chandler lost an astounding 41 pounds and 11.5% body fat. He is truly unrecognizable to his friends and family. Chandler not only changed his body, but he also improved his health, as well as his outlook on life, and gained the confidence he’s been missing. To see Chandler’s stunning transformation photos, please visit his BodySpace at https://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/chancam77/
2015 Female Winner, Nina Nam:
When talking about her weight loss journey, Nina was sick and tired of being unhealthy, “My lifestyle and bad habits were making me depressed,” she recalls. Soon Nina was overwhelmed by negative thoughts, wanting to feel empowered and energized, Nina craved feeling alive once again. When asked about struggles and obstacles she overcame during the challenge, she commented, “The hardest part was quieting my mind, calming down, and focusing on the things I needed to do.”
Nina knew she wanted to win. “I was so crazy about wanting to do this before the challenge even started.” There were times during the 12 weeks that she felt tired and exhausted, but she knew giving up wasn’t an option. “During those dark moments when I wanted to quit I discovered I had a deep, emotional drive to prove to myself that I wasn’t a loser.”
Over the 12-week challenge Nina lost a total of 21 pounds and 14% body fat. To see Nina’s remarkable before and after pictures, please visit her BodySpace at https://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/gratefulBEAST/
2015 “People’s Choice” Winner, Luke Petersen:
This is the first year with a “People’s Choice” category. This new addition has given a voice to the people and awards contestants based on what their fellow competitors deem as prize worthy. The “People’s Choice” winner voted on from the pool of top finalists. In the end, Luke Petersen of Utah took home the $40,000 prize. This 35-year-old husband and father lost an incredible 53 pounds and 15% body fat. In a heartfelt reply, Luke stated, “It makes me really emotional to know how many people I’ve connected with, not only through this challenge, but over the years as well. I’m so grateful to have such a wonderful support system that was genuinely excited for me.” To see Luke’s winning before and after pictures, please visit his BodySpace at https://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/writelukehere/

Now at the age of 50, Bill is back to the best shape of his life and wants to help others do the same.
“I’ve been in love with helping people get fit for the vast majority of my life. I’ve spent years learning everything I possibly can about training, nutrition, supplementation, motivation, and all the essential components of transformation. This love has led me to train pro athletes, celebrities, and millions of people around the world. It also forms the foundation of my 12-week Back to Fit transformation program.” - Bill Phillips

- Training - Based on basic exercises and a proven methodology that will make you stronger, burn fat faster, improve cardiovascular health, and increase energy levels, all in just 25 minutes a day.

- Recipes - Food is fuel; the cleaner you eat, the better you will perform both in and out of the gym. Eating clean doesn’t mean being deprived of what you love. Have no fear; Bill has put together a collection of satisfying meals and delicious desserts.
- Supplementation - By giving your body the right amount of nutrients, you can stay healthy, longer. This approach to supplementation will allow you to reach your fitness goal faster.
- Motivation - Getting fit takes more than just good nutrition and a solid workout regimen, it also takes a positive mindset.
