Top 10 Transformation Contest Tips
By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
If you want to lose fat and gain lean, sculpted muscle at the same 
time, there is nothing better to get you motivated and committed 
than a 12-week Transformation Contest.
Not only can you dramatically change your body, but you can also win
$1000 just for losing belly fat. At least, you can when you join the
Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.
And so here are the top 10 tips to help you maximize your results.
10. Clean out your pantry.
Listen, one of the best fat loss tips is simply, "If you don't have
it in the house, you won't eat it!"
So get rid of as much junk food as you can - and avoid bringing more
into the house. Simply cutting back on junk can help you lose fat fast.
9. Get social support.
Scientific research proves that you will lose more fat if you have
social support, both in "real life" and on the internet. So hook up
with friends who are going to help you reach your goal.
Online, I recommend getting started with Turbulence Training and 
using the Turbulence Training forum to connect with people like you
who want to lose fat. 
8. Use a food journal.
Write down what you eat. This is another research proven tip to help
you lose fat faster. Write down everything you eat. It will help you
eat better.
7. Take before photos.
Yes, it's not a lot of fun to look at your before photos now, but 
when you are done your transformation, you'll be glad you have the 
photos to compare. Plus, you'll need those to win the TT Contest. 
6. Fix your mindset.
No matter what you struggle with, you must switch your mindset to be
a successful transformation. You must go from a person who "can't 
resist cookies" to the type of person that "doesn't eat cookies 
unless they are part of a planned reward meal". That is how you win
transformation contests!
5. You must be in the correct state of change.
The truth is that even the best transformation contest winners don't
lose 30 pounds of fat on their first try. They start, they stop. 
They begin, they give up. 
It happens. And it's okay.
But when they get in the right state of change, that is when they
finally breakthrough and transform! And that's where you have to be.
4. Use a PROVEN, structured, short burst workout program.
Research shows that resistance training and interval training can
help you gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Plus, you can 
burn belly fat AND boost your post-exercise metabolism. You MUST use
this type of workout for guaranteed results.
3. Stop doing slow boring cardio and switch to interval training.
Research shows that it takes up to 50 hours of cardio just to lose 
one pound of bodyweight. 
Who has that kind of time? No one! 
But other research studies show that interval training burns belly 
fat while slow cardio doesn't. So skip the insanely boring cardio 
and start getting results with interval training (as you'll find in
the Turbulence Training workouts).
2. Plan, shop, and prepare your food. 
Take an hour or two on the weekend to go to the grocery store and 
buy all the whole, natural foods you need for the week ahead. Go 
home and prepare as many lunches and snacks as possible so you have
the right food to eat while at work. This is a proven strategy to 
help you lose fat and avoid temptation!
1. Get Turbulence Training. It's the proven, step-by-step guide to 
transforming your body and your life.
If you've ever wanted to do this for yourself - if you deserve it -
and I know you do, then NOW is the time to get started with the best
fat burning workout in the world.
