It seems like everywhere you look nowadays, guys have abs. Everytime I turn on the TV or look at a magazine cover, all I see is some guy with no body hair and a ripped stomach. Since when did that become the norm!? I can’t tell you how frustrating that is for an average guy like me to have this shoved in my face everywhere we look. I’ve done my share of ab exercises at the gym and tried to eat right and I’ve never even come close to seeing one ab muscle on my flabby belly.
I was going to be turning 40 soon and since that is such a big milestone in my life I wanted to see if I could make a dramatic change. Instead of throwing in the towel and living the rest of my life with my “dad bod”, what if I tried to get in the best shape of my life? I would do anything it takes, I was ready for a serious struggle. But the thought of seeing my abs for the first time in my life at age 40 filled me with motivation.
I wanted my wife to be attracted to me again (she would never say she isn’t, but I have my doubts), you know that raw sexual attraction that you have when you’re first dating? I wanted that back. She was beautiful and deserved to be with someone who was in better shape than I was. First thing is first though…
I needed to find out the REAL way to get abs.
Whatever I had been doing was definitely not working. I needed to find someone that had been in my shoes and had gotten abs at age 40…and then have them show me exactly how they did it! I was willing to do anything as long as someone showed me what to do.
I hit the internet and began researching. I was amazed how many scammy products there are out there. Programs promising abs overnight or crazy diet pills that look like someone made them in their basement. I found some pretty intense exercise programs too like p90x and Insanity but they were over $100. And they looked extremely difficult. I saw videos of people doing tons of pullups and pushups…I could barely do any at my weight. I needed to find something that wasn’t so challenging. Something that I would actually follow through with.
I finally found myself looking at a product called The Flat Belly Code. I hadn’t heard of it before but it seemed interesting. There was a video on the page from the Creator and after watching for a few minutes I realized that he was just like me! He was around the same age and had struggled with his weight. And now he had abs! It turns out getting abs is 90% about what you eat. The program seemed really simple, he would show me exactly what to eat with an included meal plan and there were short workouts to follow. He said his workouts were only 5-10 minutes and 3xs more effective than any gym workout. I was a bit skeptical so I kept watching the video. By the end, I was convinced to at-least give it a try. He had a really strong money-back guarantee so there was nothing to lose.
I have to admit that I was pretty excited as I was entering in my payment information. A few seconds later I had the whole program on my computer. I began reading…
The first thing I noticed was how simple this whole thing was. I didn’t have to starve myself or make any giant sacrifices. This was going to fit into my schedule perfectly. The meal plan was very straight forward and I was happy to see that I would be eating a lot of incredible foods. I skimmed through the workout guide as well and they seemed really fun…
I could do this!
I started the next day. I followed the meal plan and did one of the workouts. I have to admit that I didn’t feel like I had to change that much. The workout was over before I knew it and the fact that I didn’t have to go to a gym was perfect for me. The food I was eating tasted better than what I normally have. I wasn’t hungry all day and was surprised at the amount of energy I had. It was a big help that my wife and kids could eat the same meals for dinner so I didn’t have to go and make my own separate dinner. I think it’s the first time my son ate everything on his plate!
After the first week, I decided to check in on my progress. Still no abs, but my pants were definitely looser. I weighed myself for the first time in a long time and saw that I was under 190 lbs. I hadn’t been under 190lbs since as long as I can remember! Honestly, this didn’t even feel like I was dieting. I kept doing the workouts and following the meal plans. I loved that he included varying levels of workouts so I could progress as I got stronger and stronger.
Fast forward a little over a month later and I was down to almost 170! That reverse hour glass shape I was so used to was disappearing. My belly wasn’t hanging over my pants anymore. And I could swear I saw an ab muscle!
But it wasn’t just about the weight loss…
I felt better than I had in 10 years. I had energy, LOTS of energy and I just felt so healthy…it’s hard to explain. I could feel the energy coursing through my body like I was some well oiled machine. And this might be a little too much information, but all this energy was a huge boost in the bedroom.
My wife though I must be secretly taking Viagra!
Not to mention I had more energy to play with my kids. I think I was actually tiring them out!
So 2 months after staring the program it finally happened…
I saw my abs for the first time in my life at age 40. It was actually only a few days after my Birthday. It was my wife that first noticed. She said “look at your abs!”. I can’t tell you how big the smile was on my face.
After my life long struggle to get abs, I had finally done it.
It’s now a few months later and I still have those abs, in fact they’ve gotten a little more defined. I’m using what I learned in The Flat Belly Code program to continue to lose weight and keep it off. There are so many workouts in the workout guide that I can keep alternating through different ones so I never get bored. And after having 28 day of meals planned for me, I’ve been able to make variations of those recipes to come up with completely new meals. I even came up with some brand new recipes.
OK, this is getting a lot longer than I was planning but let me just end with this…
The Flat Belly Code program is the only weight loss plan that has EVER worked for me. It’s the real way to get a flat belly at any age.
No matter what age you are, if you think that getting in shape and getting abs is not possible, I’m here to tell you that you CAN do it! Even if you don’t care about abs, even if you just want more energy to tackle your busy day and play with your kids, this program will work for you.
So that’s my story. If you’re struggling with your weight, I really hope you give The Flat Belly Code a try. The least you can do is watch the video on the website.
I wish you the best of luck and hope you too can see your abs only a few weeks from now!
