NOTE: The near tragic story you are about to read is 100% true – only the names have been changed to protect the identities.
For most of my life I have had a very big secret…something so dangerous, and so deadly that I literally did anything and everything in my power to protect it and keep it hidden.
This secret prevented me from enjoying sports, social activities, relationships and life in general.
This secret is something that nearly cost me my life… and I know it has negatively impacted your own life in some way as well.
As powerful and deadly as this secret is, this same secret lead me to discover the TRUTH about solving the oldest nutrition and exercise problem in the world – how to eliminate your belly bloat, water retention and the layer of abdominal flab that is making you look fatter than you really are.
When I first started exercising I was a skinny, 145 pound teenager with low self-esteem and a "pooch" belly.
While some guys dreamed of cars or sports I just wanted to have visible abdominal muscles so I would have more self-confidence and feel better about how I looked.
Back then I was very insecure about my appearance and would avoid any activity that involved taking off my shirt in front of others and revealing my skinny arms and pudgy belly. In fact, just the thought of being seen "half naked" was enough to make me have a panic attack.
And it’s not as if I wasn’t trying to fix my problem. You may be surprised to hear that I began exercising when I was only 13 years of age. I was also in excellent health. But there was one area of my body that would not change no matter what I tried – I could not lose my belly fat or achieve visible abdominal muscles.
I always knew that I wasn’t what you would call "genetically gifted". In fact, many people in my family struggle with their weight and self-esteem. And after years of exercising, dieting and endless fat burning pills I found myself in a deep depression.
It sounds crazy to think that being unhappy with your appearance could lead to depression but it all stems from a general feeling of not being good enough, capable or worthy.
When combined with the day to day pressures of life these feelings can overwhelm your mind and leave you feeling trapped with no escape.
I can recall one day sitting in my car at a railroad crossing as a train approached. I thought how easy it would be for me to drive onto the tracks and end my pain…
At that moment I decided to not give up and find a natural solution that would rid me of my depression and body image issues.
