Detail Your Diet/Eating Plan During Your Transformation
My diet and eating plan consisted of eating 5-6 meals a day. In the morning I would drink a meal replacement shake. For a mid-morning snack I would eat yogurt with granola and fruit. For lunch I would eat a couple of turkey sandwiches and some more fruit.
For a mid-afternoon snack I would eat a couple of Costco-sized corn dogs. For dinner I ate a variety of pasta, chicken, ground beef, rice, and greens. About one a week for dinner I would also go out and get a burger or burrito.

Detail Your Supplement Plan During Your Transformation
My supplement use during the transformation consisted of the basic supplements. I used weight gainer protein, casein protein, BCAA's, fish oil, pre-workout/pump formula, and a joint formula for healthy joints.
What Was Your Major Accomplishment, or Major Milestones?
My major milestones was seeing my hard work and consistency pay off. Before I started lifting I wore a medium sized shirt and it hung off my arms. Now I fill out a large shirt.
I was putting on size and weight while still maintaining a size 32 waist throughout the whole process. I became not only physically stronger but mentally stronger as well. I became happy with myself and the way I looked. People noticed my progress and admired my transformation.
Final Words of Advice for Others Looking to Make a Change?
My advice for others looking to make change is to tell yourself you want to change, and never look back. Stay consistent with your diet and training and find ways that motivate you to be the best person you can be, physically and mentally.
Find people you can look up to and help keep that motivation and fire alive. Workout with a partner and hold each other accountable to working hard and eat right. Remember why you started this journey in the first place and where you were before this.
Have confidence in yourself and strive to be the best person you can be. And that's not a game!
Don't give up, don't ever give up.
