Answering the skeptics.

Over the past few days I’ve been thinking about why it is that so many people react with skepticism when they see transformation photos like mine. Cries of “Photoshop!” and “Steroids!” are all too common. Reading the comments posted on other sites about my transformation made one thing crystal clear: the vast majority of people have absolutely no idea how to properly lose fat and gain muscle! My jaw was often hanging open in astonishment as I read one inaccurate comment after another. Occasionally someone who obviously knew what they were talking about would chime in, but those rare voices were lost in the cacophony of misinformation.

So, it’s no wonder people are skeptical. Most people who have managed to lose weight did it all wrong. They lost muscle along with the fat, and then wound up even fatter a year or so later. They see their friends and family do the same thing. The mainstream media keeps repeating the same inaccurate information, perpetuating myths that need to die.

John Stone Fitness started in 2003 as a personal blog to help me track my progress and keep me motivated, but over the years it has evolved into a place that exists in order to help educate, enlighten, inspire and motivate those of you who are serious about your health and body recomposition. Everything you see on this site is real. Every picture, every food log and every statistic. You get the good, the bad and the ugly; you see my triumphs, but you also witness my failures. I hide nothing. If I were indeed altering my images, I would always be in “perfect” shape. I would not have put on so much fat over the past winter when I was bulking. I would give myself bigger traps. I would always have a ripped mid-section. That’s not reality, though. The reality is every journey has ups and downs, and those who persevere will ultimately triumph.

If you are serious about making a change and are ready to work hard, you can start off on your own incredible transformation right now, today. There is nothing stopping you but you. While you always have the option to upgrade your forum membership, everything you need to know is available to you on this site and the forum for free. This web site is here to help you, not to take your money.

Start educating yourself by reading the “sticky” threads in the Beginner’s forum (the threads that are “stuck” at the very top). Feel free to check out my own detailed food logs, my training routines, my photographs, and daily news archives. I encourage you to create a free account on the forum and introduce yourself or ask any questions you may have.

I know getting started is difficult, and I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it will be easy (it won’t – there are no magic bullets). What I can tell you is that if you have faith in yourself and are willing to work hard, you will be astonished at what you can accomplish using proper, healthy fat loss techniques.
