LEAN EATING

Help choose our men’s $25,000 winners

by John Berardi, Ph.D.
Our January 2014 program is now sold out.
The next Lean Eating Program begins in July.
For more info about the program, read on, and if you're interested in joining, we strongly recommend you put your name on the presale list now while there's still time, because spots in the program typically sell out within hours.

A great feature of our Lean Eating Coaching Programs is the body transformation contest we run for men and women: every 6 months, we give big prize money away for the best body transformations in the program.

For the current coaching group – which started in January 2012 and is wrapping up now – we’ve committed over $75,000 in total prize money.

And for the upcoming group – which is kicking off in on January 9th, 2013 – we’ve upped the ante to $100,000 in total prizes.

Since we just finished one of those contests - click here to get involved in the next round, starting in a few weeks - we now need your help choosing the winners.

There’s $25,000 on the line for the top male body transformation and $25,000 for the top female body transformation. Plus, we put up another $25,000 in special surprise rewards along the way.

Over the last week or so, the coaches and I have spent countless hours poring over physique photos, weight loss numbers, body composition data and participation records in order to choose a handful of finalists.

We’ve had a helluva time narrowing it down. Dozens upon dozens of folks have changed their bodies, and their lives, in spectacular ways.

I can’t be more sincere when I say that the changes I saw in the men and women of this last cohort (both the physical and the mental/emotional) are among the most amazing I’ve seen in my entire career.

So at this point, I’m reaching out to all our PN readers. I need your help in determining the one man and one woman most worthy of the two grand prizes.

Our Male Finalists

These guys came in all shapes and sizes, from all parts of the globe, and from all walks of life. Check out what they were able to accomplish in just 12 months of eating and exercising properly.

And remember, with Lean Eating coaching, there are no crash diets, no Biggest Loser-type bootcamps, no full-time chefs, no full-time personal trainers.

In other words: these are real guys adding fitness into their lives one step at a time, building on each day’s successes, and learning how to maintain what they’ve accomplished for life.

How To Vote

When casting your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the best transformations.

Indeed, in the Lean Eating program we don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

Rather, we’re simply looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting wherever they were at the beginning of the program. (And, as you’ll see, folks started all over the place.)

Truly, the Lean Eating Coaching Program is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think created the most dramatic changes over the course of the last 12 months.

To cast your vote for the top male transformation, click here. You’ll be taken to a specific discussion thread in the Precision Nutrition Member Zone where you can vote for who you think deserves the $25,000 prize.
