The Trim Challenge – 24 Days

This post comes from my cousin Jon, who earned a degree in Strength and Conditioning from Springfield College and has been working in the field fulltime since graduation in 2011. A few days ago he described one of the methods he utilizes and I asked him to write up a post on it. The idea is a cleanse-like diet for 10 days, and then supplemented eating for another 14 days. His pictures are pretty impressive!

Before doing the 24 day challenge I weighed 165 pounds at 17% body fat and in 24 days I was able to drop 6 pounds of fat and gain 3 pounds of muscle! I was leaner, stronger and faster than ever before.

Once the challenge began I immediately began to notice differences in physical difference as well as energy levels. I was eating more often than I was used to and not craving the need to find energy sources. Receiving compliments on my face thinning out as well as NEEDING to wear a belt also increased my self-confidence.

I remained on a workout routine as well, lifting weights and performing sprint intervals or performing conditioning circuits. Following the program was easy as each meal or snack is advised to you so there is no guessing involved! I was also able to save money on groceries and going out to restaurants by eliminating all the junk food and drinks. The Challenge is a great way to kick-start your body into working more efficiently at digesting your food intake as well making a better dietary decisions in my everyday lifestyle following the challenge.
