Cody’s Transformation Essay:

The Adonis Contest is the first contest I have ever actually completed, due to its shear simplicity. There were no complicated plans to put together from day to day, no whole food groups forbidden, no magic ratios to hit to ensure I wasn’t wasting away or forfeiting any progress….Just simply eat less than I currently was.

There was no time in which I felt I needed to give up, because the guidelines were easy enough that it was already in line with what I was doing, yet less overall of it (overall food), which made it seem not like a plan but simply living.

I appreciated the straight talk in the podcast, to undercut all the fluff that so many of your users come out of; it was truly liberating to know I didn’t have to eat on schedule, that I wouldn’t up and die if I didn’t have 200 grams of protein a day, that I didn’t have to spend a wad on supplements to finally get to where I wanted to be. The common sense approach reigns supreme.
