He seems to go from flab to cut in the first 20% of the movie! Then Blammo, the goofy M&M boxers are out of rotation, and the surfer tan and bleached hair tips show up and he's six pack city from then on. In fact the last half is pretty much the same until he puffs up a bit and goes pasty at the end.

Thanks for ruining the movie for *everyone*!

Why can't I stop destroying everything I love. :(

that's actually a very motivating site. especially because he sounds like a genuinely nice guy

He looks like a nice guy, too -- at first.

i think it is motivating as well. i haven't let myself go as far as he did... but i feel i am just a few years off. time to dust off the weights.

on another note, i bet that guy is RAKING in dough from those google ads. weight loss suppliments are probably pretty high dollar clicks!

This guy started out by just posting a link to his transformation page on the bodybuilding.com message board. I remember reading his post months ago. Now, everyone is linking to him, he's getting interviewed by newspapers, he's really become an internet fitness sensation. Funny how the interweb works, really.

Bluno: The Google ads only recently appeared - seems after the new year (one year since he started), he started really getting the links and hits. He always had quite a bit of traffic, but then he got FARKed and all heck broke loose. I've emailed him a couple times, and he was always quick to respond - now he's a couple hundred emails behind in replying, I guess.

From what little I know, he's a genuinely good guy who made a decision to change and stuck to his plan. I read a lot of crap (especially in the FARK comment thread) about his tan and the blond hair and all that, but jeez - the guy lost some 50 pounds and was happy with his appearance for the first time in years. The discipline required to do what he did is beyond a lot of his detractors.

Frankly, I think he's to be commended, regardless of what anyone might think of the finished product (at the moment). To each his own.

This thread is closed to new comments. Thanks to everyone who responded.
