You’ve tried everything to lose weight? Now try what works! It is hard for me to believe that soon it will be two years since I met Justin Thacker and had a one hour meeting with him about nutrition that would change my life.

This may start to sound a bit dramatic, but my life actually changed instantly. How and why? Because I realized that I was lucky enough to be sitting in front of an expert with unique experience and a scientific plan to get me where I desperately wanted to be. So what did I do? Instead of disregarding him, or doing it half -assed, or sabotaging myself, I decided to trust him and grab this opportunity to try his plan exactly as he prescribed from the moment I left his office.

Luckily for me, the prescription did not involve measuring, counting, or anything time consuming or fussy. Instead Justin outlined the four principles of success; Quality, Quantity, Frequency & Timing. Learn them, embrace them, live them and get lean. Life can be so simple and satisfying after all.  Justin’s QQFT Principles are now available in an E-book here.  QQFT is only $39.95!!

The fat loss came fast and furious, but this is no short term nutrition program, it is a way of life and I continue to follow Justin’s QQFT Principles today.  I have maintained my 60lb fat loss for over a year and a half!

If you’d like to have a similar personalized experience like I did and have someone look into your eyes as you make the big decision to change your life, skype sessions with a Lab nutritionist are possible. I recommend you download the book first and then schedule a follow up session to ask questions and help you personalize the plan to your preferences and lifestyle. Regular follow up sessions might be just the accountability you need to keep yourself on track. These guys are living the QQFT lifestyle themselves and they are very professional and supportive.

Please let me know how QQFT goes for you!





Easter Egg Hunt at the Gym

by Suzy Oge on March 31, 2013

What better place to have an Easter Egg hunt than the gym? Plenty of great hiding places and “After Hours”, is pretty safe. You’ve probably always wondered if an egg would fit inside of a barbell?

As so often happens, 1 or 2 eggs were not found… it will be fun to see the surprised looks when they are either discovered or crushed in the leg extension machine;-)

Happy Easter!
