Weight-loss is a controversial subject. I have been dependent on the scale in the past for my worth and value. That silly number meant it would be a good day or a blah day for me. Ridiculous.
Here is a little gem that I recorded prior to my 2nd body composition test. Cooper makes his presence know multiple times throughout the video!
Supplements aren’t for everyone, but they work for me. However, not without proper diet and exercise like I mentioned before.
I was debating on whether to post my numbers, but I have gotten so many questions regarding GNC’s GenetixHD and whether it really works, that I wanted to show you my results.
According to the ACSM for my age range 30-39, 18% puts me in the well above average group (over the 90th percentile). There are many different charts out there though.
Personally, the most effective measurement for my progress is body composition and how well I can tackle my workouts. Not the scale.
I don’t count calories.
If I were in a figure competition, I would certainly be more diligent.
However, I have a general idea of what works for me. Ultimately, it’s how my clothes fit and how I feel that determines my food choices.

These are rough examples of my typical diet and activity. It varies on the weekends when I am able to workout first thing in the morning–I love weekends!
Both products are thermogenics (stimulants), so I don’t need more than that. If you decide to just use one, then you can take the prescribed servings.
After 2 rounds of GenetixHD, I have noticed a change in how I look. I am leaner and the numbers show it.
Like I said, my eating is not perfect, and I give into cravings more than I’d like to admit. However, implementing the GenetixHD line with HIIT and CrossFit workouts has made a positive impact.
What questions do you have? (How tall am I? Do I take rest days? What animal would I be?)
