Wow, sounds like amazing results! Pics? I'm super jealous of anyone dropping that much BF in that short period of time. Awesome.

I know... it's biggest failing it that it failed to make me any taller, or younger.

Re: what 12 weeks of CF did to me.

Yes thank you!

I began CF the same time the gym I go to started their 12 week body transformation contest. I'd love to win. I got a trainer that was huge on KB's and tons of body weight exercises. He helped me out tons.

And about my diet. I eat most of my carbs in the morning...lunch and dinner is chicken or fish and veggies and water. no more coffee no more red bulls or other drinks like that. i'll have 3-4 glasses of milk a day.

I stopped eating all fast food and no more desserts lol.

I get my pics on May 18th. Thats when they announce the winners of the transformation.
