How to win $1000 by losing belly fat

Ooops, I screwed up and didn’t explain a few things about the Turbulence Training Body Transformation Contest.

So here’s a complete Q’n’A of everything you need to know.

Q: When does the next contest start?

The current body transformation contest began Dec 27th, and today is the last day to enter if you want to complete a full 12 weeks.

You must submit your before and after photos before Friday, April 9th, 2010 to be eligible to win the $1000 grand prize.

Q: Where do I send my before photos?

You do not have to submit your before photos until the end of the contest.

To submit your before and after photos at the end of the contest, you can post them on the TT Member’s forum, or simply reply to this email with your entry.

You also need to submit a 300 word essay detailing your experiences, results, and successes with the body transformation program. I also recommend sharing the workouts and nutrition programs that you used to achieve your amazing results.

For examples of essays, visit and click the link under the photos so that you can read what past winners have submitted.

Q: Do you have any tips for taking before and after photos?

You bet.

First, you must have a newspaper to document the date of your photo.

HOWEVER – for folks who live in remote areas, it is permissible to print off a website from the internet that includes the date on the website.

NOTE: Please include a close-up photo of your newspaper or website print-out in your final body transformation submission.

Q: What are the prizes?

Prizes are as follows:dave

There will be a male category and female category. Each category will reward the following prizes.

1st Place Grand Prize – $1000 plus a 3-Year Platinum TT Membership

2nd Place – $500 plus a 2-Year Platinum TT Membership

3rd Place – $250 plus a 1-Year Platinum TT Membership

Q: What workouts do you recommend using?

You must use Turbulence Training workouts for the body transformation. turbulencet3_43

For beginners, I recommend following the order of the workouts delivered in the main Turbulence Training program. Start with the beginner, then intermediate, and then the TT Original program.

So many programs! Just comment below if you need help picking one out…

Q: What nutrition programs do you recommend?

Fortunately, Turbulence Training comes with a solid guide to fat loss nutrition from Dr. Chris Mohr.

But if you are looking for even more nutrition advice, I recommend the following two programs – which have been used by many past TT body transformation contest images9winners:

1) Isabel’s “Diet Solution Program”

2) Brad Pilon’s “Eat-Stop-Eat” program

NOTE: Brad’s program has been used by the greatest number of winners according to their essays.

If you want to learn more about Brad’s program, check out this interview I did with him and posted on my blog:

Please let me know if I missed answering any of your questions.

Can’t wait to see your results.

I also want to thank you in advance for being a part of this amazing experience.

There is nothing more rewarding to me than reading the Body Transformation Contest entries. I can’t say enough about your commitment, your bravery, your persistence, your strength, and your emotion when you write in about your success.

It humbles me to see the effort you put in and to think that so many of you are using the programs written by a simple farm-boy from a small town in Canada.doggy1

I can’t thank you enough, and I wish that you reach all of your goals in the body transformation contest.

Your friend,
