Research shows that although people can lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight on any given diet, dieting itself is a consistent predictor of future weight gain. Why? At some point, everyone stops dieting. The Lean Muscle Diet solves the sustainability problem while offering immediate results. It’s simple: act as if you already have the body you want. If a reader is, say, a 220-pound man who wants to become a muscular 180-pounder, he then uses The Lean Muscle Diet's formula to eat and train to sustain a 180-pound body. The transformation begins immediately, and the results last for life. Lou Schuler, who has sold more than one million copies of his fitness books worldwide, and Alan Aragon, nutrition advisor to Men's Health, have created an eating and "metabolically expensive" exercise plan designed to melt fat while building muscle. The best part? The plan allows readers to eat their favorite foods, no matter how decadent. With full support from Men's Health, The Lean Muscle Diet delivers a simple--and simply sustainable--body transformation plan anyone can use.

It's YOU against Lead! Who is going to win? Sweet you? Or Rotten it? I'd like to tell you how it can and should be you! It's a pretty big deal too, since if you back down and choose not to fight now, you will probably only need to fight twice as hard in the future when it bites you in the culo somehow. Then you'll have placed forth twice the effort only to only fall twice as hard in defeat in the end, whereas now, you can beat it with relative ease with just a little concerted effort and concentration. Sweating has officially arrived as that big new Diet for success! It is here, and it's here to stay! For its basis was well over needed, and its relevancy never before so apparent. Welcome to the world of Powercycles68 and becoming Lead free!! Most of all, welcome to the start of your new age. Starting slow and finishing fast is what the Powercycle68 is all about. You can grow your body, mind, and spirit to unseen heights just by starting now as opposed to later! I've personally taken it to the extreme with over 2800 Powercycle68 sessions to conclude that we are built to go through a self-healing process with hard physical exertion. Perception, Science, Facts, Mathematics, and Testimony all come together to show just how undermined this process really is. The conclusive magic of the Powercycle 68 Gold Zone is ridiculous on just how well it heels the mind, and positively influences all your bodies' core functions. If it didn't, would I be standing next to you now with a silly picture of me before and after a session? No! I wouldn't. Everything changes for the better, everything! With ease as well, as you become an upgraded SuperYOU from completely balancing out your body. This is going to be HUGE for the future health goals of everyone worldwide. The all natural miracle drug has set sail on curing all who embrace! This represents a spiritual roll down ladder from our divine creators themselves, to help us achieve the utmost pinnacle in our lives. One that shines with your glory and eternal happiness. Buy in now, and you'll be bought out later... It's time to get the Lead people! It's time for a Revolution! May you be well inspired! With highest regards, Giacomo Fasano
