FALL IS IN
full swing by
now with trees
boasting brilliant
shades of reds and
oranges. Jackets
and warmer clothes
have emerged
from closets,
and one of my
favorite holidays,
Thanksgiving,
is right around
the corner.
Thanksgiving is a time we are reminded to be thankful
for the people and blessings in our lives.
Despite some of the difhcult challenges !'ve had to
face in 2013, ! am choosing to be positive and grateful
for all the good things in my life. ! have an incredible
job where ! get to express my passion for health and
wellness. ! have an incredible family. ! have a man in
my life who is the kindest, nicest man !'ve ever known -
one who loves unconditionally and teaches me to do the
same. ! am healthy and happy.
After my father passed away in February, ! again
was reminded that our time on earth is a gift. We can't
waste that time with negativity and bad habits. We
must focus on the positive. What are some things you
are thankful for? Write them down. Tell someone. Feel
the overhow of gratitude wash over you. !t feels good,
doesn't it?
This month, we continue our focus on health and
wellness. !f you're feeling sluggish and toxic, it might be
time for a cleanse. Nax Nuscle Sports Nutrition has a
great tool to help you detox and that's Cleanse 8 Lean.
!'ve used this product for years and absolutely love it.
Find out more about it on pages 57-58. Beyond that,
there are foods and other supplements you can take to
hush your body of unwanted toxins. Just read the article
on pages 47-50 and discover 13 nutrients that can help.
!f you suffer from chronic headaches, then don't miss
the informative piece on headache causes and solutions
(pgs. 18-20). Some of the alternative therapies, such as
sitting in a sauna, may surprise you.
November is also a time we remember our armed
forces. !n honor of that, we have spotlighted seven
soldiers, most of whom are on active duty, in our
"Everyday Heroes" section (pgs. 37-40). Join with me in
thanking them for their service and hnd out what they
do to stay ht for themselves and their country.

I HAD THE privilege of
hosting hve very special people
last month. We invited four of our
top NaxForm hnalists along with
our 2013 NaxForm Life Challenge
Champion, David Calhoun, to our
corporate headquarters in Orange
County, California for two days of
photo and video shoots.
They all hew in Thursday
night from different parts of the
country: North Carolina, Colorado,
Las vegas and the Pacihc
Northwest. Friday morning, they
were picked up bright and early
from their hotel and escorted hrst
class in a limousine to our corporate ofhce. We met the group out front, and as
we entered the building, our hve v!Ps were greeted with a standing ovation by our
staff. This was one of many highlights over the weekend. To see their reactions
and feel their overwhelming sense of accomplishment sent chills through my body.
They were being recognized and applauded for all of the hard work they had put in
over the past several months, and they deserved it.
After hair and make up, they were like kids in a candy store during their
individual studio photo and video shoots - each one beaming with pride and
genuine excitement at what was taking place. Each of them told me during the
shoot that the whole experience just felt surreal, that they could not believe it was
them, in these bodies taking part in this. They were the center of attention, all
eyes on them. They loved it. And the camera loved them. ! could not believe how
great they each looked, and more amazingly, knowing where they had all come
from just nine months ago. David, Brian, JoLynn, !ngrie and Arpana are all going
to be the focus of the Nax Nuscle 201+ campaign that will be revealed in January.
Saturday we headed up to the world-famous hard-core gym Netrohex in Long
Beach for the training photo shoots. The group had an absolute blast shooting
at the gym and loved the vibe and people there. That night we had an awesome
celebration dinner where they were able to let loose a little bit on their diets and
enjoy themselves. !nspirational stories were shared about the struggles that were
overcome and the newfound joy and energy they all felt. The best part was seeing
the bonds that were created between each one of them, knowing that they had all
achieved something signihcant in their lives and the fact that they were all at that
table, at that moment, was not by mistake.
! look forward to seeing them continue to achieve their goals. Nax Nuscle
couldn't be more blessed and thankful to have each of them representing our
brand and what we stand for.

If you’re a serious athlete, then you know the value of a great
night’s rest as quality sleep is key to recovery and better
performance. Max Muscle Sports Nutrition’s CNS Black (Central
Nervous System Blackout) can help. Created with the highest
quality GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) available, CNS Black
not only works to enhance your body’s ability to slip into deeper
sleep, but also diminishes the effects of daily stress and eases
nervous tension. But this product is so much more than those
other GABA formulations on the market today. CNS Black
supports Growth Hormone and Insulin Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1)
Homeostasis, both essential for recovering from intense
workouts and for reducing body fat. CNS Black also contains
L-Arginine HCl (a nitric oxide precursor), L-Theanine (which
produces a calming effect and promotes alpha wave production in
the brain), Mucuna pruriens (Velvet Bean, a precursor to
dopamine), N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT) and the tried-and-true
sleep agent, melatonin.
Combining the strongest active ingredients legally available, CNS
Black is your TOTAL answer for quality sleep, improved recovery
and better, stronger athletic performance. Wake up feeling
refreshed and ready for anything!

FROM THE ARMY
TO THE STAGE:
MY FITNESS
JOURNEY
My journey with ftness began in the U.S.
Army. As an enlisted female soldier, I had
something to prove. In basic training, I
always pushed myself and never gave up.
I was selected to be the one to represent
the females of my platoon in competitions
against the others. While learning Spanish at
the Defense Language Institute, I carried on
in usual fashion.
During a typical afternoon of 1st Sergeant
physical training, I was carrying a 5 gallon
jug full of water and pulling a fellow soldier
up a hill because we soldiers “never leave a
fallen comrade.” After what felt like a mile
I began experiencing abdominal pain and
I have been unable to run ever since. I was
later honorably discharged from the Army as
a result and immediately pursued my dream
of becoming an attorney.
In the two years it took to obtain my
Bachelor’s degree I struggled to fnd a
workout regimen that worked with my
ailment. Ten law school inficted upon
me a kind of stress I had never imagined
possible. As I put in 16 hour days of class,
studying, and work at three jobs, quick
and dirty became my preferred method of
nutrition.
It didn’t take long to feel sick and
depressed. Law school compromised my
relationships, health and sense of well-being.
In January 2012, I made it my New Year’s
resolution to improve my mind, body and
soul. Competing at a bodybuilding show
would be the perfect symbol of an improved
body. I enlisted the aid of a coach and
much to my surprise was informed that I
was better suited to compete in the fgure
division.
When I started training to be a fgure
competitor I was the defnition of skinny;
absolutely undefned in every way. In order
to put on size I lifted very heavy weights,
ate upwards of 3,400 calories of clean food
daily, and utilized Max Muscle supplements
such as BCAAs, Glutamine and MaxPro.
Within a matter of six months of hard work,
my body transformed and I looked like a
completely diferent person. No longer could
anybody justifably call me skinny. Finally I
knew what it felt like to be a curvy woman.
From day one on my path to becoming
a fgure competitor, I have used Max
Muscle products to improve my physique.
Trough proper training, nutrition and
supplementation, I placed 1st at my frst
fgure competition. In addition, one week
after graduating law school, I competed
at my 2nd fgure competition and placed
3rd in my class. Competing in two fgure
competitions while in law school, hands
down, was the most challenging experience
of my life. However, my experience has
taught me that I can and will do anything
I set my mind to. With that belief in mind,
I am in the process of starting up my own
law frm, conducting personal training part-
time, and representing Max Muscle Eugene,
Oregon.

REACHING OUT A
HELPING HAND TO
KIDS IN NEED
In Bend, Oregon, there is an organization
called Oregon Youth Challenge. It is much like
a military school for at risk youth on the verge
of dropping out of high school or even worse,
being locked up in Juvenile Detention centers.
The OYC is a no non-sense, all business run
schooling system for these kids. They all wear
military fatigues, everything is 'Sir, Yes Sir" and
they are taught to be polite and respectful.
They are treated as if they were in boot camp.
And that is what these kids need and want:
structure!
Every six months, OYC get new recruits
from all over the state of Oregon and we are
invited to come out and talk with them about
what we do and what are some of the paths
these kids can take when preparing to enter
back into normal civilian life. Many of the kids
get really excited when we come out because
we load them up with goodies and they all
love the magazines! Many of them take a few
different ones because they say it motivates
them to not only get better physically, but
mentally!
Tony (Bend Max Muscle manager) and I
look forward to spending the day with these
kids because it forces us to realize that not
only can we help people in the store, there is

MS&F COVER LAUNCH PARTY A SUCCESS!
On Saturday, April 27, from 12 to 4 p.m., friends and fitness fans joined me at Santa Rita Cantina
in Austin, Texas, for the my cover model launch party for the May 2013 Issue of Max Sports &
Fitness magazine. Those who came to celebrate posed for photos with me and picked up their
signed copy of the magazine. I had a wonderful time taking pictures with everyone, sharing in
food and drink and celebrating MS&F's contributions to educating people on health and fitness
with its monthly magazine. Big "Thank You" to Santa Rita Cantina for hosting the event in the Austin
Escarpment Village location and another big "Thank You" to MS&F! I am so proud to have graced
the cover and appreciate you allowing that to happen.

a way for us to help people in areas that you
normally do not get to enter.
Many of these kids have just been brought
up in bad circumstances and seem to be in
survival mode. Because of that, it has forced
them to make decisions that may have not
been the best for them, hence why they
end up at the Oregon Youth Challenge. It is
humbling for us to meet these kids and be told
that they are happy to see us. It just reminds
me that what we do is worth more than just
supplements!
I would highly recommend other Max
Muscle franchisees or managers to reach out
to these programs. It will leave you with a
sense of giving back. And you never know,
you can have a major impact on these kids.

and I want to share my story
about how I gained 15 pounds
by using Max Muscle's protein
powders this year. I'm a really
busy trainer and gymnastics
instructor and was losing too
much weight due to stress and
so much activity. I started to
use protein powder throughout
the day to get enough calories.

Most of us might associate fiber with
helping our bodies eliminate waste. The
elimination process is very important for
maintaining a healthy body, but dietary
fiber does much more than that. Fiber
helps us maintain a healthy weight and
lowers your risk of diabetes and heart
disease.
What is dietary fiber?
The best way to describe dietary hber
is that it is simply portions of foods
that do not get absorbed. They pass
through your stomach, intestines
and colon and are eliminated. There
are two types of hber: soluble and
insoluble.
Soluble fiber dissolves in water to
form a gel-like material. It can help
lower blood cholesterol and glucose
levels. Soluble hber is found in oats,
peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits,
carrots, barley and phylum.
Insoluble fiber promotes the
movement of waste through your
digestive system. It can soften and
swell the stool for better elimination
while cleaning the intestinal walls.
Whole-wheat hour, wheat bran,
nuts, beans and vegetables, such as
caulihower, green beans and potatoes,
are good sources of insoluble hber.
Also, many plant-based foods, such
as oatmeal and beans, contain both
soluble and insoluble hber.
FOREVERYOUNG
High-Fiber Diet Benefits
Maintain regular bowel movements. Fiber
will also make the process quicker and
help control constipation.
Help you maintain bowel health. As we
age, it is very important to keep these
internal organs healthy and clean to
minimize the risk of disease.
Lowers cholesterol levels. Soluble hber
found in beans, oats, haxseed and
oat bran may help lower total blood
cholesterol levels by lowering low-
density lipoprotein ("bad") cholesterol
levels. Studies have shown that hber
may have other heart-health benehts,
such as reducing blood pressure and
inhammation.
Helps control blood sugar levels. In people
with diabetes, soluble hber can slow the
absorption of sugar and help improve
blood sugar levels. !nsoluble hber may
also reduce the risk of developing type 2
diabetes.
Helps maintain a healthy weight. High-
hber foods generally require more
chewing and can literally trick your body
into thinking it is eating more food. Also
the bulk volume of these foods will hll
you up faster.
How much fiber do you need?
The Mayo Clinic advises the following
amounts: Nen ages 50 or younger need
38 grams and men 51 and older need 30
grams a day. Women ages 50 or younger
need 25 grams and women 51 and older
need 21 grams a day.
Here are some good ways to easily
add more hber to your diet:
• Whole-grain products
• Fruits
• Vegetables
• Beans, peas and other legumes
• Nuts and seeds
Psyllium husks are also a great way
to add insoluble hber to your diet. Nax
Muscle offers an awesome organic
psyllium product that will kick-start your
cleansing process.
One thing for sure is we can all use
more fruits and vegetables in our diet,
and if we do that, we will dramatically
boost our natural intake of hber. You
can also stop by your local Nax Nuscle
store for a nutritional consultation and
they can design you a healthy diet plan
that will include high hber. Good luck!

What is the Driving Force
Behind Video Game Addiction?
Worried about your partner’s hard core gaming? You should be, if they are playing games to escape
from daily life, to gain rewards or to socialize with other people, say researchers from the University of
Missouri, who studied individual motives that contribute to unhealthy game play.
The researchers found that problematic video game use had much more to do with a person’s
reasons for playing games than with actual time spent playing. People who play games to avoid
problems or to pretend to be other people are most at risk for addictive gaming. And the more they
play, the more problems it causes in their lives.
Those who play to socialize with others are
also at risk, such as in games like World of

night – or be cut from the team – can interfere
with real life obligations, such as spending time
with the family.
A third motive for playing that can lead to
addictive gaming? Those who are fueled by
getting to the next level or collecting all of
the in-game items, such as with games like
Farmville or Diablo. The researchers hope that

Caffeine
Consumption
and Brain
Development
When you were a kid, did your
mom forbid you to drink coffee for
fear your brain would be damaged?
She may have been right, according
to a study supported by the Swiss
National Science Foundation.
According to the researchers,
caffeine, found in sodas and energy
drinks as well as coffee – beverages
freely consumed by many children
and young adults – interfere with the
deep sleep needed during puberty for
brain development and maturation.
While the study was done on rats,
and rat brains differ from human
brains, there are enough parallels
between rodent and human
development for the research to
raise concern about caffeine’s effect
on children. Until further research
is done, it may be wise to limit
your child’s intake of caffeinated
beverages.
Should Tea Rituals
Be Your 'Cup of Tea?'
The English are well known for their fondness for tea. In fact, the average British
citizen takes in about six or more cups of tea each day. A lesser known fact is that the
afternoon tea ritual may be a healthy habit! A new Australian study showed that the
intake of three or more cups of black tea each day was associated with a small but
significant drop in blood pressure.
Study participants in the University of Western Australia in Perth research were
divided into two groups: one drinking three cups of black tea daily, and the second
group drinking the same amount of a non-tea caffeinated beverage. At the end of the
six-month study, the tea-drinkers had an average drop in systolic blood pressure (the
top number) of two to three points, and a drop of about two points in diastolic blood
pressure (the bottom number).
While this is seemingly a minor change in blood pressure reading, the researchers
said that even this small drop in blood pressure readings among the general population
would be associated with a 10 percent reduction in the prevalence of hypertension and
a 7-10 percent reduction in the risk for heart disease and stroke.

HEALTHMATTERS By Linda Hepler, BSN, RN
Almost everyone has
had a headache from time
to time. And for most
people, an occasional
headache doesn’t interfere
with life too much. But
if you’re experiencing
headaches more days than
not, and especially if your
headaches are interfering
with work or play, it’s time
to stop suffering and start
taking action – so you
can live most of your days
headache-free.
Chronic daily headaches,
according to Susan
Hutchinson, MD, Director
of Orange County Migraine
and Headache Center
in Irvine, California, are
dehned by their frequency.
¨Three to hve percent of
adults experience chronic
headaches,” said Dr.
Hutchinson. “This means
that they have a headache
15 or more days a month
for 3 or more months in
duration.”
While there are many
types of headaches,
she added, the two
most common “primary
headaches,” or headaches
that are not caused by an
underlying condition like
an infection or a tumor,
are tension headaches and
migraine headaches. While
both cause pain, they have
different characteristics.
“A tension headache
is universal,” said Dr.
Hutchinson. “It causes
mild to moderate pain
that may feel like pressure
or tightening around
your head. But it doesn’t
interfere with your ability to
get to the gym.”
Migraines, on the other
hand, she said, “are
less common but more
debilitating - you can't
work out when you have a
migraine.”
A migraine headache is
usually one-sided rather
than an all over headache
like a tension headache,
said Dana S. Simpler, MD,
an internist in private
practice in the Baltimore,
Maryland area for 26 years.
“It’s often over one or the
other eye,” she explained.
“Sometimes the pain is
preceded by an `aura,' or a
visual disturbance, such as
a light hashing in front of
your eyes, or a dark spot
that interferes with vision.”
Although not always
true, she added, a
migraine headache is often
associated with nausea,
light and sound sensitivity.
While migraines affect both
men and women, they are
more prevalent among
women than among men.
While both migraines
and tension headaches
can become chronic,
chronic migraines are more
common than chronic
tension headaches, said
Dr. Hutchinson. And
because it's sometimes
hard to tell which kind of
headache condition you’re
experiencing (some people
have a mixture of both
types), it’s important to
have a headache evaluation

to diagnose types of headaches, a
history, physical exam and possibly
testing to exclude underlying
conditions, such as a computerized
tomography (CT) scan or magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI) scan,
can help to pin down a diagnosis.
Following the evaluation, your doctor
can help you to come up with a
treatment plan. This will likely include
one of a number of prescription
medications, such as injections
of Onabotulinum Toxin A (Botox),
currently the only FDA-approved
treatment for chronic migraine.
In the meantime, you can help
yourself – and your doctor – by
keeping a headache calendar to
WUDFN \RXU KHDGDFKHV ¿QG RQH RQ
the National Headache Foundation’s
website at Headaches.org). Recording
the timing and characteristics of
your headache as well as what you
were doing when it occurred can
help not only to identify the type of
headache, but also possible triggers
for your condition (see sidebar on
headache triggers). And while most
chronic headache management
plans include over the counter or
prescription medications, changing
underlying lifestyle factors that may
contribute to your headaches, such
as inadequate sleep, hydration or
nutrients, or excess caffeine, alcohol
and stress – will go a long way in
helping to alleviate the problem. You
may need the help of a nutritionist, a
therapist or other health professionals
in order to make these changes, said
Dr. Hutchinson. “Athletes – or anyone
with chronic headaches – should
review lifestyle factors and consider
getting help in a multidisciplinary
approach.” MS&F
Many chronic-type headaches have “triggers,” or underlying factors that
contribute to the development of the headache. Some common triggers
for tension and migraine headaches, according to Dana S. Simpler,
MD, an internist in private practice in the Baltimore, Maryland area:
Tension Headache Triggers
Emotional tension – It doesn’t have to be something serious, like a
divorce or a death in the family. Things such as a big project due at work
or school, a poor night’s sleep or excitement or anxiety over an upcoming
event, can all cause emotional tension.
Physical tension – Prolonged muscle tension such as sitting in a
hunched position over a computer or even squinting in the sun or while
UHDGLQJ D ERRN FDQ FDXVH SK\VLFDO WHQVLRQ VXI¿FLHQW WR WULJJHU D KHDGDFKH
Migraine Headache Triggers
Foods – While not true for all migraine sufferers, particular foods may
trigger an attack. Common food culprits are ripened cheeses, chocolate,
anything fermented, pickled or marinated, foods containing monosodium
glutamate (MSG), processed meats like bologna, pepperoni, salami and
hot dogs, caffeinated and alcoholic beverages.
Hormonal changes – Such as premenstrual or postpartum changes.
Certain medications – Like birth control pills and certain
antidepressants.
In addition, overuse of pain medications (more than three times per
week) such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, can trigger chronic headaches.
Headache
TRIGGERS
Exertion
Headache
Do you experience sudden, severe headaches following strenuous activity such as weight lifting,
running – or even sex? If so, you may have an “exertional headache.” According to the National
Headache Foundation, most exertional headaches are harmless, but some are caused by disorders
such as abnormalities in blood vessels within the brain. If you develop a severe headache directly
following physical activity, you should check in with your doctor to rule out underlying problems. And if
things check out fine, you can ask about medications you can use prior to exertional activities to blast
headaches before they start.

While most headache sufferers use over-the-counter
or prescription pain medications at least some of
the time, there are some non-medication therapies
that can help to safely alleviate headache pain. A
few to try:
Hot and Cold Treatment
According to the National Headache Foundation,
the pain of chronic headaches can be lessened with
ice and heat. While those with migraine headaches
tend to prefer cold packs applied to the forehead
and temples, and tension headache sufferers hnd
relief with warm packs applied to the posterior head
and neck, preference for cold or heat is an individual
choice.
A recent study, performed by musculoskeletal pain
specialist Giresh Kanji, PhD, Chair of the Wellington
Education and Self Treatment Research Group and
also for the New Zealand Pain Foundation, found that
sauna treatments of 20 minutes three times a week
for eight weeks had the same effect as hot and cold
packs. ¨Pain, including headache pain, is amplihed by
stress chemicals, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline
and serotonin in the brain and spinal cord,” said Dr.
Kanji.” Heat, such as in a sauna, can produce an
overall reduction in the output of stress chemicals
over six to eight weeks, which, in turn, can reduce
pain,” he explained.
According to Dr. Kanji, although his sauna treatment
study was done on tension type headaches, “it is likely that
heat should help other forms of headache.”
Connective Tissue Therapy
Connective tissue, or more specihcally fascia,
surrounds every structure of your body,
including bones, organs, muscles and
nerves. It’s made up of collagen,
elastin and other hbers that are
bathed in cellular huid, and
works like a river to help
transport oxygen, nutrients
and waste from cell to cell,
according to Sue Hitzmann,
MS, CST, NMT, a somatic-
movement educator and
manual therapist,. But
“stress can get trapped in the
connective tissue,” she said,
“causing migraine and chronic
tension headaches.”
Connective tissue therapy may
consist of deep tissue massage with a
manual therapist, or a “hands off” series
of exercises using a soft body roller and small balls called
Myofascial Energetic Length Technique (MELT), developed
by Hitzmann and featured on The Dr. Oz Show. “MELT
is a very simple technique that you can learn to do to
rehydrate connective tissue and release stress trapped
and stuck within your body, like sediment in a river,” said
Hitzmann. “It keeps your connective tissue stable and
functioning.”
You can learn more about Hitzmann’s self treatment
system through her book, The Nelt Nethod, or hnd
a group class or one-on-one instruction with a MELT
instructor at MeltMethod.com.
Fish Oil
Recent studies, such as one carried
out at the University of Cincinnati with
15 migraine sufferers, have shown
that regular consumption of hsh oils
containing omega-3 fatty acids EPA and
DHA may reduce the frequency and
severity of migraine attacks. While most
of the studies utilized large amounts of
hsh oil capsules (more than six 1,200
mg capsules daily), it doesn’t hurt to
take the dose most often recommended
by healthcare professionals (two 1,200
mg capsules each day) – plus one or
two fatty hsh meals (salmon, mackerel,
trout, herring) each week. MS&F

In today’s world, we are conditioned to believe that beauty
should be based upon how we look. But how can you look
beautiful if you don’t feel it? Max Muscle is proud to dispel this
myth through two revolutionary products, emerge™ and
Max EFA™, that will help you achieve overall beauty from the
inside out!
Just ask Jen Stevens, who in 2011, found herself in the worst
shape of her life. Years of yo-yo dieting and obsessing over her
weight resulted in poor body image and a lack of self-
confidence. With the help of some very special people and her
local Max Muscle store, not only did Jen find the help she
needed, she also discovered these two revolutionary products
that helped her reach her fitness goals and achieve
all-over beauty!
Getting the Skinny on emerge™
Every year, people make New Year’s resolutions to finally lose
weight. But somehow, inconsistency and lack of motivation
due to not being able to see results often get in the way of ever
realizing this goal. But Max Muscle has your best weapon yet:
emerge™, a great-tasting powder that mixes with water to
provide a powerful fat loss and body composition slenderizing
system specially formulated to inhibit appetite, promote the
release of fat from stored fat cells and accelerate the burning
of fat for fuel.
emerge™ contains clinically proven weight loss ingredients to
suppress appetite, provide maximum calorie burning specifically
from fat, increase energy and elevate the body’s metabolism.
The combination of selected ingredients promotes a metabolic
shift that scientists describe as “fuel portioning” by shifting the
burning of fat as fuel rather than fat for storage.
Jen Stevens Lost Over 20 LBS., Got in the Best Shape of Her Life and
In the Process, Also Realized A Myriad of Additional Cosmetic Benefits!
Armed with an arsenal of results-driven good-
ness, emerge™ also contains a patented ingre-
dient called Advantra Z
®
which is an extract of a
citrus fruit and has been shown to be effective in
fat breakdown, thermogenesis, appetite control
and ultimately, in increasing the ratio of lean
muscle to total body mass. While this ingredient
increases the metabolic rate, helping to burn
more calories, it does this without increasing
heart rate or raising blood pressure. Amazingly,
Advantra Z
®
has also been shown to improve
athletic performance.
Jen Stevens of Walnut Creek, Calif. is a believer
after losing 20 pounds using emerge™.
“I stopped working out completely,” she says
after landing her “dream job” in the beauty indus-
try. “My job left me with little time to eat decent
meals and I often turned to fast food out of
convenience. It didn’t take long to see how much
weight I had gained and that took a toll on my self-esteem. I’m only 5’2”, so
20 pounds is pretty noticeable!” She’d tried several fad diets, diet pills and
powders in the past that left her feeling “horrible and moody” and knew that
she needed help from an expert.
Stevens was on a mission and, not only hired a personal trainer to get back into
shape, but also turned to her local Max Muscle store in Walnut Creek to enlist the help
of owner, Kenny Tali, to help with her weight loss goals. Tali evaluated her diet, made
suggestions and quickly recommended
emerge™ to assist Stevens in losing
the unwanted weight. She used one
scoop in the morning, another scoop
mid-day, and then half a scoop in the
afternoon, Monday through Friday, for
eight weeks. She could see her body
changing dramatically as she became
more toned. The results were motivat-
ing and gave Stevens the encourage-
ment to get to the gym daily.
Amazed by the transformation,
Stevens decided to enter an NPC
Bikini competition. After extensive
research she realized that the very
same Max Muscle store where she
purchases her emerge™ was also
owned and operated by one of the
most well respected competition prep
coaches in the industry: Kenny Tali.
With Tali at her side, Jen is now
prepping for NPC nationals hoping to
earn her IFBB PRO status by the end
of 2013.
Stevens credits emerge™ for not
only helping her lose 20 unwanted
pounds, but for helping her get into
competition shape. “I couldn’t have
lost the weight without it,” she says. “I
love how it tastes and that I can take it
without feeling moody or jittery or
crash from it. I have a major sweet
tooth and emerge™ saves me from
binging on bad foods and keeps me
on track!”

Max EFA™ – Get Your Fat On!
Not all fat is bad for you. There is the “bad” fat that collects on your
body and clogs the arteries and then there is the “good” fat, also
known as Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), which your body needs to
function properly.
EFAs are specific fats that are critical to the proper function of your
body. Your body is not able to produce these fatty acids on its own, so
it’s necessary that you eat a diet rich in these crucial building blocks to
maintain a healthy body. Unfortunately, most people don’t eat the right
types of foods that meet the minimum recommended daily allowances
of EFAs. But, Max Muscle makes this easy to attain with Max EFA™,
an easy-to-consume supplement in softgel form.
Max EFA™ contains flaxseed oil, wheat germ oil, conjugated linoleic
acid (CLA) oil and borage seed oil, all essential fatty acids that will help
you to achieve improved overall health. Essential Fatty Acids have a
ton of benefits on your body and its cells. They help with cellular devel-
opment, the formation of healthy cell membranes and regulate blood
pressure, immune responses and liver function. EFAs also help with
blood clotting and breaking down cholesterol and, the oils from EFAs
also lubricate the body from the inside out, instantly supporting the
new growth of hair, skin and nails.
When Stevens decided to try her hand at bikini competitions, Tali not
only recommended emerge™ for weight loss, but Max EFA™ for
overall health. “I like my athletes and customers to use it because of
all the healthy, good fats found in the product,” he explains. “The
omegas make the hair and skin look so healthy and in turn, feel good
about their appearance as well.” Stevens took two softgel capsules of
Max EFA™ twice a day, every day. After only 10 days, she noticed a
big improvement in her complexion, hair and nails. “The results were
amazing!” says Stevens. “Almost immediately, I could see the change,
but to have other people notice, too, that’s how I knew it worked. I’ve
never gotten so many compliments about my skin and hair until I
started using Max EFA™.” And, when she’s not competing, she
continues to use the product daily. “Why wouldn’t I?” Stevens says.
“It’s made such a difference! I honestly look and feel more beautiful.”

Strength training or doing weight-
bearing exercises such as those using only
your body weight has incredible benefits
for your body and mind. As if you didn't
already know that weight training is good
for your physique (who doesn't want to
be toned all over?), but are you aware
that lifting weights is good for your overall
health? Here are five health benefits:

of Strength
Training

1. Fight depression. Weight training
creates a mental distraction from the
blues. When training, you release the
"feel good" endorphins in the brain, which,
in turn, put you in a good mood.
2. Cut down your cancer risk. Studies
prove that weight training is just as
important in preventing deadly tumors as
staying lean and having a healthy diet. In
fact, by implementing a workout routine,
you are about 40 percent less likely to die
from cancer by having stronger muscles.
3. Protect your heart. Not just
cardiovascular activities keep your heart
strong. The American Heart Association
recommends strength training for
preventing heart disease and maintaining
heart health. Strength training even helps
to improve those with heart conditions.
4. Get better sleep. It has been proven
that weight lifting decreases low self
esteem, anxiety and depression, all of
which can leave you restless at night.
5. Strengthen your bones. Exercise
stimulates the bones by placing them
under stress, which causes them to build

Max Nitro 2 was designed to provide two levels of support for NO
production, the amount of arginine substrate needed for the
production of nitric oxide and support and amplification of the eNOS
enzyme that facilitates the production of nitric oxide. For the
substrate or fuel source to produce NO, we have added a proprietary
blend of three extreme forms of arginine for maximum pharmacoki-
netics. The three multi-source forms include arginine alphaketoglu-
tarate (A-AKG), arginine ketoisokaproate (A-KIC), and arginine
monohydrate HCl. Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (A-AKG) is a
powerful and special form of arginine resulting in dramatic NO
release. A-AKG has also been shown to promote growth hormone
and insulin secretion for additional anabolic effects. Arginine
ketoisokaproate and arginine monohydrate HCL provide the other
two forms for boosting NO levels.
Max Nitro 2’s unique formula maximizes your body’s ability to
produce NO and enhance blood flow which will
lead to better pumps during your workout.

Just because you've made the decision to eat right and lose weight doesn't mean everyone and
everything else is on board with your goals. Beware the many faces of diet saboteurs.
How To Deal with Diet Saboteurs
By Maria Kang MENTALLYFIT
Dieting is a challenging
endeavor. You have to plan your
meals, document your intake and
eat consistently. Many of us will
have to skip the Starbucks line,
bring our own bag lunch and
hurry to the gym instead of happy
hour. Successfully dieting would
be quite possible if you worked
in a gym, cooked all your meals,
limited your party engagements
and was surrounded by fitness-
minded people. While ideal, it’s
not realistic for the majority of us.
The majority of dieters have a
family who may or may not be on
the same htness page. Some have
friends who love to party and indulge
in a drink or four! Nany of us attend
events and family engagements when
food is plenty and support is not.
All of us will struggle with opposing
voices that fear the positive changes
you are making in your life. These
are called ¨diet saboteurs," and they
are the things in your environment
that can and will destroy your diet.
Those who are closest.
!t is a popular saying that ¨those who
are closest, will hurt you the most."
Æ
Diet Saboteur: 'Oh go ahead, it's just
one treat! It won't wreck your diet!'
34 WWW.MAXMUSCLE.COM ı NOVEMBER 2013
In this case, those who are closest will
tempt you the most! They can come
in the form of your spouse, sibling or
best friend. They will complain when
you train, order your favorite food and
bring home leftovers and place it right
next to your Tupperware. It’s tough
to overcome limited support, but you
can overcome it by encouraging them
to set goals with you. If they refuse,
then try and spend limited time with
them and build a new support circle
around you that will be strong enough
to tackle the lack of support you are
receiving from those closest to you.
Don’t go to the grocery
store hungry.
Eating consistently is one of the
main rules in healthy dieting. You
need to consume meals throughout
the day to ensure you are fueling
your body properly. When meals are
skipped, people tend to overeat at
their next meal. This can be especially
problematic when grocery shopping
and your eyes are as big as your
hunger. Overcome this challenge by
keeping trail mix in your car, bringing
protein shakes in your bag and even
stopping for healthy fast food options
if you are unprepared. Overeating and
under-eating work hand-in-hand so
prepare yourself for the possibilities of
busy and stressful days.
Finish all your food.
For those who have children, meal
times can be challenging because
often times your child will have
leftovers that leave
you wanting to hnish.
Sometimes it’s a handful
of goldhsh crackers or the
rest of a peanut butter
and jelly sandwich. In
order to ensure you don’t
break your diet, the best
thing to do is pack their
leftovers for future meals
or throw it away. Small
“cheats” here and there
are not benehcial in the
long run.
It’s just one drink.
Social situations can be
tough, especially when
alcohol is involved. While
abstaining sometimes
seems like the best solution, avoiding
your friends and becoming aloof can
be taxing to your personal life. It’s
important to create a lifestyle change
in which you are able to “have a life”
while also dieting. Dominic Current, a
natural competitive bodybuilder and
owner of hve Nax Nuscle franchises in
Oregon, suggests faking it, until you
make it! “I order drinks that look like
drinks. I am not a big drinker to begin
with, so this practice has worked for
me many, many times. I found that
if I order just water with a lot of ice
or even a watered down diet soda,
people ask me what I am drinking. I
tell them vodka and water or a lean
rum and coke they leave me alone.”
Scope the menu.
When dining out, there are several
food choices, but probably only hve
options that really meet your diet
requirements. There are two areas
of the menu that are safe to peruse:
the salad and healthy choices section.
Don’t tempt yourself by reading other
parts of the menu. Order a calorie-
free beverage, order your healthy
meal and stay focused on your long-
term htness goal.
Give yourself time.
In changing your lifestyle, you need to
give yourself time – time to become
acclimated to a new diet and time
to get results. Alfonso Noretti, a.k.a.
“Angry Fitness Trainer” says, “A diet is
nothing more than a learned lifestyle,
so I suggest that trainees who are
trying to eat a healthier diet slowly
acclimate to new ways of eating over
the course of two months. Slow and
steady changes are more manageable
than complete overhauls.”
Current says that his biggest advice
for those making transformations this
year is in one word: ‘time.’ “Give and
allow yourself time: time training, time
cooking and time for real results to
happen. So many people want it to be
fast, but you have to tell yourself the
faster it goes away, the faster it comes
back!” MS&F
Diet Saboteur:
Going to the
grocery store
hungry.
Diet Saboteur: Drinking with friends
can be fun, but alcohol can thwart your
weight loss efforts. Don't give in to the
pressure to drink.

America's Heroes:
Fit For Duty
Max Muscle supports the armed services. Here is a
handful of customers in various branches of service
who not only knowingly put their lives at risk to protect
our freedom, but understand the value of being in the
best shape they can be for their country.

Full Blown XXX, Vit-Acell, Joint Relief, High 5
Military Branch: U.S. Marine Corps
Before joining the U.S.
Marine Corps, Randy
Yarbrough felt great respect
for Marines. He thought
of them as elite warriors,
members of the most
revered hghting force of
earth. He specihcally liked
the way Marines carried
themselves, how they were
so physically ht and tough.
“Marines are in a
category all by themselves,”
said Yarbrough who served
in the Marine Corps for 11
years and spent three more
years on reserve duty. “I
wanted to serve my country
and wanted a challenge.
The Marine Corps was the
perfect place.”
During his time in the
Narines, Yarbrough worked
in intelligence and traveled
around the world. He kept
a focus on htness, spending
countless hours in the gym.
But recently, Yarbrough
started to put on weight, so
he visited Fernando Salas
at the Max Sports Nutrition
in Wesley Chapel, Florida.
“Fernando put me on a
strict supplement, workout
and meal plan,” Yarbrough
said. “In less than a year,
my weight dropped from
200 to 170 and my body
fat dropped by half. I have
been able to put on 10
pounds of solid muscle and
maintain my body fat. I’m
in the gym every morning
at 5 a.m. I love the results
and I’m living the dream.”
Q: Who is your hero?
A: My wife. She is a
wonderful wife and mother.
She keeps me motivated to
make it to the gym every
day.
Q: What’s your favorite
cheat meal?
A: There is a local high-end
burger chain I frequent
every chance I get on my
cheat days. I order the
double with bacon, cheese
and even a fried egg on
top. I also get fries and a
beer. Heaven!

Georgia Deployment Program.
Whether at home or abroad, Pinto
keeps his focus on gaining lean
muscle, shedding excess weight and
maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
“Julio is the epitome of consistency
and his physique is a testament to
that,” said Roy Sabater, franchisee at
Max Muscle Sports Nutrition store in
Los Alamitos. Even though Pinto was
shipped overseas to Europe, Sabater
said he stayed on point with his diet,
training and supplements.
“For months, Julio would regularly
have us ship him his supplements,”
Sabater said. “Pretty soon his fellow
soldiers on base started taking
notice of his progress and wanted
supplements shipped to them as well.”
Q: What’s your favorite workout?
A: I like to work my back and biceps.

“It has always been one of my
goals to become an Army Ranger,”
Spalding said. “After I returned
home from my first deployment,
I decided to make that dream a
reality. I love the adventure and
excitement that comes with my job.
I think it is important to be part of
something bigger than myself.”
Spalding stepped up his training
and sought nutrition advice from
the people at Max Muscle Lincoln.
Soon, he achieved his fitness goals
and earned the coveted Army
Ranger title.
“I have continued to train hard
and use Max Muscle for my
nutritional needs,” Spalding said.
“Now I am over 30 and in the best
shape of my life. I do not plan on
slowing any time soon.”
Chad Case, franchisee of Max

epitome of what many aspire to be:

once. The rifleman has been
serving and meeting all of
his objectives since 2009.
In addition to rigorous
military physical training,
Lingeman devotes time to
CrossFit and running. Yet, he
could not reach his fitness
goals until he improved
his nutrition. Lingeman
worked with Dennis Frank,
franchisee of Max Muscle
Sports Nutrition in Lexington,
Kentucky, to develop a diet
plan. He was able to cut
his body fat percentage
in half over a 12-week
period while maintaining 96
percent of his original lean
mass.
“Dan’s perseverance and
commitment to following
the nutrition plan we
developed exemplifies the
important role nutrition plays
in achieving fitness goals
versus exercise alone,” said
Frank.
Q: What’s your
workout routine?
A: I do CrossFit on Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday,
Friday and Saturday. I run
on Thursday and Sunday.
Q: Who is your role model?
A: My biggest role model is
my father because he tries
to spend every single minute
of his day doing something
productive.
Q: What workout
tunes do you like?
A: I enjoy working out to
electronic dance music or
hip hop, but once my heart
rate gets going after the first
few minutes, I hardly notice
what is playing.
RESPECT AND
DISCIPLINE FOR LIFE
Jay Canals served four years
active duty and four years in
the reserves with the United
States Army. It was this service
that instilled in Canals a sense
of respect and discipline.
“Military experience has
helped me through life and
matured me in many ways,”
Canals said. “The respect and
discipline I carry has allowed
me to succeed in all I do with
fitness and nutrition.”
Canals completed basic
training in Fort Jackson, South
Carolina and was stationed at
Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He
was a squad leader, a translator
in South America, and a patrol
leader in Panama. He has also
been a Max Muscle supporter
since 2009. He placed in
the top 10 of the 2011/2012
MaxForm Life Challenge.
“My current store is Max
Muscle Wesley Chapel,”
Canals said. “Fernando Salas
is the franchisee who has
helped me through weight
loss and transformations. I am
no longer on blood pressure
medication and I owe it all to
Max Muscle, my family and
especially my wife, Kimberly,
who helps prepare my meals
and holds me accountable each
day.”
Q: What’s your favorite
workout routine?
A: I love high-intensity interval
training and weight lifting.
Q: Who is your role model?
A: Jesus Christ (and Superman).
Q: What’s your favorite meal?
A: The standing joke among my
friends is “chicken and broccoli”
is all I eat. But, my favorite
meal is red beans, white rice and
breaded flank steak with sweet
plantains.

'BEING A SOLDIER IS WHO I AM'
Lani Hefel, 28
Location: Iowa
Max Muscle store: Clive, Iowa
Favorite Supplements: Triple Whey Chocolate, Vit-Acell, Essential
Omega Pina Colada
Military Branch: Iowa Army National Guard
LIVING HIS
CHILDHOOD DREAM
Saul Mendoza
Location: California
Max Muscle store: Los Alamitos
Favorite Supplements: GlutaMatrix, Max EFA, CNS Black, Max
ACM, ADRX, MaxPro protein
Military Branch: U.S. Air Force
Saul Mendoza has known since he
was a small child that he wanted to
serve in the military. Now, he has
put in nine years with the U.S. Air
Force.
“It’s all I have ever wanted to
do,” Mendoza said. “I will serve
until it kills me, or I am too old and
frail to do my job. As long as I keep
up my htness, that won't be for a
while.”
Mendoza spent eight years in
the Air Force as a c-130 engine
mechanic. Now, he works as a drill
sergeant for at-risk youth. Because
physical htness is such a big part of
what he does for a living, Mendoza
said it is important to stay in peak
physical condition. He does this
with proper nutrition and by being
a self-proclaimed ¨htness junkie."
Roy Sabater, franchisee of the
Max Sports Nutrition store in
Los Alamitos said he has been
amazed by Mendoza’s dedication,
consistency and progress. He
remembers when Mendoza came
into the store to stock up – three of
everything – for a stay on a base in
the Philippines.
“I thought to myself, ‘this guy is
going to attain his physique goals
in no time,’” Sabater said. “The
same soldiers who were teasing
Saul about his supplement and
workout routine are now picking
his brain on how to lose weight and
gain muscle.”
Q: What’s your favorite workout?
A: I do chest and back twice a
week. Also, deadlifts are by far my
favorite exercise.
Q: Who is your role model?
A: Bradley Martin is a spitting
image of what I would like to
accomplish and maybe even
surpass one day as a bodybuilder.
Q: What’s your cheat meal?
A: That would have to be anything
from Chipotle with sour cream. I
love sour cream.
Lani Hefel originally joined the Army
National Guard in 2002 for the college
money. Eleven years later, she said she
still serves “with honor and pride” at
Camp Dodge in Iowa.“I’ve met so many
people and made so many great friends
that being a soldier is who I am,” Hefel
said. “I love being able to serve my
country.”
One month ago, Hefel returned from
Afghanistan. While she was there,
Hefel placed in the women’s top three
in every 5K race. She competed in a
female-only 500-pound club where
she placed second in the lightweight
division, lifting a total of 550 pounds.
Hefel, who loves to be active,
enjoys running, hiking, weight lifting,
biking, rock climbing and kayaking.
In the past, she struggled to balance
running with weight lifting. Although
she completed nine marathons, Hefel
wanted more muscle definition. So,
she visited her Max Muscle Sports
Nutrition store in Clive, Iowa.
Tyler Barkley, franchisee and
certified fitness nutrition coach, created
a nutrition plan for Hefel. She saw
immediate results and has been a Max
Muscle devotee ever since.
Now, Hefel is dedicated to nutrition
and balances running with high-
intensity interval training – a regime
that fits her life as a soldier.
Q: Who is your role model?
A: I really look up to fitness model/
writer Jamie Eason Middleton.
Q: What’s your favorite meal?
A: I love breakfast any time of day.
Q: What’s on your workout playlist?
A: Ludacris is my favorite.

VITALNUTRITION By Alissa Carpio
NUTRIENTS
THAT DETOXIFY
You’ve probably heard the hype before and blew off the term “detox diet” as
a fad or just bogus material. However, the fact that toxins are present in the body,
both from endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external) sources, is very real.
The human body is amazing and is equipped with a means to rid itself of said
toxins naturally. This detoxification system is primarily comprised of the digestive
system, liver and kidneys. The digestive system contains a host of billions of
beneficial bacteria that fight off pathogens to prevent disease and infection. The
kidneys and liver cleanse and filter the blood, while the liver additionally breaks
down food, drugs and nutrients by way of the stomach and intestines.
In order for the body to properly detoxify itself, these three systems must
be running in tip-top shape. While fasting on water and vegetables for
a week may not sound healthy or appealing, adding certain nutrients
to your diet and avoiding excess toxins can assist your body in
functioning more efficiently for both health and fitness related goals.
Try adding the following nutrients to your diet to give your body a
little detoxifying push.
1
CARROTS
Rich in beta-carotene, antioxidants and plant havonoids, carrots
also boast a unique amount of polyacetylenes. Antioxidants and
polyacetylenes work together to prevent oxidation in the body.
Fiber promotes regular passage of waste and toxins. Carrots are
an excellent source of vitamins A, K and C, as well as potassium.
Æ

OLIVE OIL
Most people
know that olive
oil is considered
one of the
healthiest fat
sources. Like
avocados, olive
oil is rich in oleic acid, which
assists in nutrient absorption and
digestive health. Monounsaturated
fats are largely present in olive
oil and help protect against
oxidation. According to DaVita
(davita.com), a leading healthcare
provider for kidney disease
treatment and education, olive oil
is recommended for people with
kidney disease as one of the best
food choices.
L-TOX
Max
Muscle’s
L-Tox
contains
VSHFL¿F
herbs
and nutraceuticals that
support two phases of
WKH OLYHU¶V GHWR[L¿FDWLRQ
process. L-Tox also
contains nutrients that
support the synthesis
of glutathione, a three
amino acid product known
to be one of the body’s
strongest antioxidants.
2
GRAPEFRUIT
This juicy, tangy citrus fruit
is rich in vitamin C. Plus,
the pink and red varieties
contain lycopene, a
known antioxidant.
Grapefruit has been found
to increase urinary pH
and citric acid excretion,
reducing risk of formation
of calcium oxalate kidney
stones.
6
4
3
APPLES
Tis delicious fruit is
super rich in polyphenols,
antioxidants that protect
against cancer and
cardiovascular disease.
Apples also contain some
fber and vitamin C. It’s
recommended to eat the
entire apple (including the
skin) for the most health
benefts and the highest
amount of polyphenols.
GARLIC
Long since known for its immune-boosting properties,
garlic activates liver enzymes to aid in digestion.
Additionally, freshly crushed garlic contains potent
amounts of allicin, an antibacterial, antifungal,
antiparasitic and antiviral powerhouse nutrient. Sulfur
compounds also assist in binding and eliminating toxins.

DETOXIFY
WITH JUICE
As daunting as it may seem to consume such
a wide variety and large amount of fruit and
vegetables to support detoxification, there is a
much easier way. That way is juicing. Juicing
allows you to consume a large amount of vitamins
and minerals contained in fresh produce without
the bulk.
Juicers and juice extractors
are good-investment appliances
for do-it-yourselfers, or you can
opt for a ready-to-drink version.
Zoë Sakoutis and Erica Huss
co-founded BluePrint Juice, a
company that provides 100
percent raw and organic cold-pressed juices. They suggest a juice
cleanse for the following reasons: “A BluePrint juice cleanse is an
excellent way to take a break from all of life’s little indulgences
like alcohol, caffeine, sweets, starches, fried foods, etc. Drinking
cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices in place of solid food for a
few days helps you hit the reset button on your system.”
Each 16 oz. bottle of raw organic cold-pressed juice has the
equivalent of up to 6 pounds of produce, so you’re flooding your
body with nutrients – feeding your cells instead of stuffing your
belly.”
AVOCADOS
Tis high-fat fruit
is rich in oleic acid,
which helps the
body absorb fat-
soluble vitamins
by assisting in the
formation of transport molecules
in the digestive system. Avocados
also contain anti-cancer agents,
essential fatty acids and fber.

PROBIOTICS
The hora of the gut, or digestive tract, maintains the health
of your immunity and detoxihcation ability when populated
with good bacteria. !n order to establish healthy bacteria,
probiotics can be taken in the form of supplements or
cultured foods. Susan Patterson, co-author of 19 Naturally
Detoxifying Superfoods, weighed in on the importance
of probiotics: ¨With consumption of denatured food, the
overuse of antibiotics and a heavy insult of toxins, healthy gut hora is being
compromised. New research is pointing to the fact that disrupted gut hora
may be one of the leading causes of a number of serious medical conditions.
... Healthy bacteria are responsible for providing a natural barrier between
all sorts of invaders, including parasites, viruses and toxins. Probiotics are
a necessary part of detoxihcation and break down pesticides and help carry
heavy metals out of the body while boosting immune function."

MAX GREEN SYNERGY
Tis supplement contains ingredients
that boost all three of the body’s
detoxifying systems. Prebiotics
and probiotics aid in digestion and
immunity, while chlorophyll-rich
greens assist in cleansing the body.
A potent blend of greens and fruit help you get
the benefts of eating a large amount of produce
without the bulk.
CABBAGE
Cabbage and similar
cruciferous vegetables are
rich in sulfur compounds,
which bind to toxins and
get excreted through waste.
Cabbage also stimulates
the production of important
liver detoxifying enzymes,
including bile. The cultured
versions of this vegetable
– kimchi and sauerkraut
– boast potent probiotic
bacteria as well. Be sure
to look for lacto fermented
kimchi and sauerkraut in
order to get the live cultures.
WATER
It might seem
simple, but that
doesn’t lessen
the importance
of water and its
role in cleansing
the body. Staying
hydrated ensures
proper liver and
kidney function
by lessening the
work on these
vital organs. Water
also helps dissolve
nutrients and
carries them to
the body’s cells for
various functions.
FISH
Fish containing high amounts
of essential fatty acids (EFA),
particularly omega-3, support a
healthy immune and digestive
system, the body’s first two defenses
against toxins and pathogens. EFA’s
also offer anti-inflammatory and
heart healthy benefits. Omega-3 rich
fish include mackerel, trout, tuna,
cod, sardines and salmon. MS&F

RED BELL PEPPERS
The red color of this
particular bell pepper is
due to its high lycopene
content. In addition, red
peppers contain vitamins A
and B6 and more than 30
carotenoids.

Expecting turkey, stufhng, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie at the table this
Thanksgiving? Super-charge Thanksgiving dinner this year by updating the menu
with nutrient dense foods like kale, barley and wild mushrooms. Phytonutrients in
kale are powerful in protecting cells from cancer and preventing heart disease. As
with all leafy greens, kale is packed with anti-oxidant rich vitamin A and hber.
When it comes to potatoes, skip them and serve whole grain barley instead.
Barley contains beta-glucan hber, which helps reduce cholesterol, improve the
immune system and regulate blood sugar. Barley is also known to lower blood
pressure and reduce visceral fat. With barley’s slow-releasing carbs, the body
feels satiated for a longer period of time, which will also help stave off that late
night craving for more pumpkin pie.
Here, barley pilaf is enriched with fresh kale, green onion and wild mushrooms
and served with havorful protein and iron-rich lamb chops instead of turkey,
which promote healthy kidneys and muscle. This holiday season, leave the table
feeling super-charged, not super-stuffed. MS&F

MAXPRO- Consuming enough protein each
day can be the difference between getting results and
not. MaxPro is comprised of a blend of whey protein
concentrate, whey protein isolate and casein protein.
Whey protein is an excellent source of glutamine,
glycine and the branched chain amino acids leucine,
isoleucine and valine. Whey protein transits the
stomach quickly for fast absorption by the intestines,
making it ideal to consume post-exercise to speed recovery. Rich
amounts of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, are contained in whey
protein. Glutathione is involved heavily in metabolic detoxification, and
levels of glutathione have been shown to decrease with exercise.
Peptides from whey protein have also shown to enhance the activity of
our immune system.
Recently, whey protein has received attention for being effective in
weight loss and reducing body fat. A newly published research study
had this to say about whey: “Healthy, overweight and obese individuals
participated in the double-blind, randomized clinical trial ingesting a
whey protein shake twice daily for 23 weeks. Participants were provided
no dietary advice and continued to consume their free-choice diets
throughout the study period. At the end of the 23 weeks, subjects in the
whey protein group lost statistically significantly more body weight, fat
free mass and waist
circumference compared to
the other groups consuming
a similar soy protein or an
isoenergetic amount of
carbohydrate (placebo).”
Casein protein comprises 80
percent of the protein found
in milk and does not clear
the stomach as fast as
whey protein. It is a slower
digesting protein, often
referred to as a “time-
released” protein, making
it a good choice to add to
whey protein and to
consume prior to bedtime
when you will be in a
fasting state.
GLUTAMATRIX- Glutamatrix is formulated with three different sources of glutamine, each easy
to use and providing individual benefits for our body. GlutaMatrix helps to speed recovery by enhancing
immunity, accelerating muscle repair and improving brain function. Here are some highlights:
s L-glutamine is easily absorbed into the blood stream, allowing for quick absorption and
immune function

important for fast and optimal absorption.
VIT-ACELL ENERGY- Vitamins
and minerals play essential roles in most metabolic
processes in our body. They act as anti-oxidants,
co-enzymes and catalysts playing roles in a
number of chemical reactions. Vit-Acell Energy,
which comes in a delicious citrus flavor, is a natural
liquid nutrition supplement that provides 100
percent or more of 13 essential vitamins and
essential minerals. It also contains a natural juice blend
loaded with antioxidants, 100 mg of colloidal minerals and
energizing herbal extracts such as green tea, ginkgo biloba,
grape seed extract, ginseng, citrus bioflavonoid extract, rutin
powder and herperidin extract. Vit-Acell Energy also provides
100 mg of caffeine coming from green coffee bean extract,
guarana extract, yerba mate extract and kola extract making
it a perfect choice for your morning multi-vitamin. Taking a
liquid vitamin offers even more benefits such as:

ESSENTIAL OMEGA- Most of

simply the best way to do it. Some of the features
and health benefits include the following:

and extract, senna leaf powder and
aloe vera are considered natural
stimulant laxatives, which increase
the contraction of the muscles in
the intestines and induce bowel
movements. Aloe Vera, in addition
to its laxative effects, also aids in
bowel detoxihcation and healing of
the intestinal tract. Psyllium husk
powder is a water-soluble hber.
Psyllium is commonly added to diets
that are low in hber and is helpful in
treating irritable bowel syndrome,
high cholesterol, constipation, colon
cancer and more. Fennel seed powder
is used for intestinal health, water
retention and removal of toxins from
the body. Slippery elm bark powder
and turkey rhubarb powder are both
used to improve intestinal health and
proper digestion. Dandelion, horsetail
and barberry help to promote leanness
by eliminating unwanted water as
well as promote a healthy urinary
tract. Dandelion is also benehcial in
cleansing of the liver and kidneys.
Cleanse 8 Lean was designed to be
taken with your normal diet. It works
with your body to act fast but not
harshly like some laxatives do.
WHY USE IT?
Cleanse & Lean can be used in the
following ways:
• Jump-start a weight-loss plan
• Look your best for a special event
• Cleanse your body and remove
toxins
• Promote regularity
People have been cleansing for
thousands of years because of the
physical and mental benehts you
experience. Body cleanses work to
remove toxins from our digestive
system. A big beneht from a cleanse
is the natural energy you'll feel. Your
skin looks better, you feel leaner and
when you feel good on the inside, the
happier you are.
Deep body cleanses can help to
lower your accumulation of toxins.
Everyone, no matter how clean a
life you lead, will accumulate toxins,
and over time this accumulation can
overload our detoxihcation system
and keep our body from running as
efhciently as it should. An overload of
toxins may also be a major cause of
many diseases. As part of a deep body
cleanse, Cleanse & Lean can be taken
with L-Tox, ADRX, Essential Omega,
L-Glutamine, Vit-Acell, turmeric, red
clover and Nax Green Synergy. These
products taken together will help
cleanse your liver, colon, kidneys,
lymphatic system, skin, blood and
lungs.
So, whether you're trying to lean out
and show off the body you've worked
so hard for, get regular, or take control
of your internal health, Cleanse & Lean
will help you get there. MS&F

during cleansing! Fiber
and Max Cleanse & Lean work
together. Fiber acts like a mop,
gathering up toxic materials
released and helping to sweep
them out of your body.
2
Drink more water than
you usually do! Bloating
is often a result of festering
bacteria from backed up food in
our bodies that is fermenting and
sending out poisons through our
bloodstreams. Water helps to
hush the toxins in your body and
even dilutes their concentrations
during the detoxihcation process.
3
Bring down your toxic
load! Opt for organic and
pesticide-free foods so you have
fewer toxins in your body. Don't
forget about the psychological
toxins, too. Don't schedule your
cleanse during a high stress time.
!nstead, consider taking some
personal down time, and be
sure to support your body with
exercise while you're cleansing.

Recent Study Supports More
Protein for More Muscle

It appears that increased protein protects against
muscle breakdown during diet and weight loss
programs. The purpose of this study was to determine
the effects of varying levels of dietary protein on
body composition and muscle protein synthesis
during energy deficit periods. Researchers at the U.S.
Army Research Institute at Natick, MA conducted a
randomized controlled trial of 39 adults assigned the
subjects diets providing protein at 0.8 Recommended
Dietary Allowance [RDA], 1.6 (2x-RDA), and 2.4
(3x-RDA) grams per kilograms of body weight per day
for 31 days.. Researchers found that the proportion
of weight loss due to reductions in fat-free mass was
significantly lower and the loss of fat mass was higher
in those receiving
2×-RDA and 3×-
RDA compared to
RDA. Researchers
concluded that
consuming dietary
protein at levels
exceeding the RDA
may protect fat-
free mass during
short-term weight
loss. (Pasiakos SM,

Tribulus Terrestris DOES NOT LEAD TO A
POSITIVE DRUG TEST

Some critics claim Tribulus terrestris may increase the urinary testosterone/
epitestosterone (T/E) ratio, which may place athletes at risk of a positive drug test.
To test this hypothesis, researchers at the Southern Cross University, NSW, Australia
conducted a study to determine the effect of T. terrestris on strength, fat-free mass,
and the urinary T/E ratio during 5 weeks of preseason training in elite rugby league
players. Twenty-two players were match-paired and randomly assigned to either a
T. terrestris (450mg/d) or placebo group. All subjects performed structured heavy
resistance training as part of the club’s preseason preparations. After 5 weeks of

would not place an athlete at risk of testing positive based on the World Anti-Doping
Agency’s urinary T/E ratio limit of 4:1. (Rogerson S, Riches CJ, Jennings C, et al. J

Leucine Supplementation
MAY BE KEY AMINO ACID IN
WEIGHT LOSS

Scientific evidence supports that high protein diets favor
weight loss and its maintenance. Leucine, as a member of
the branched-chain amino acid family, is hypothesized as
playing a significant role. To investigate this, researchers
conducted a study in obese mice to look at the impact of
leucine supplementation on energy balance and associated
metabolic changes. Mice were fed either a normal caloric
diet while receiving the amino acid leucine or no leucine
in drinking water. Researchers found that the mice fed the
leucine supplementation had decreased body weight and
fat mass. Additionally, mice supplemented with leucine had
improved glucose tolerance, increased leptin sensitivity
and lower respiratory quotient. These research scientists
concluded that leucine supplementation might represent an
adjuvant beneficial nutritional therapy during
weight loss and maintenance,
because it improves lipid and
glucose metabolism and restores
leptin sensitivity in previously
obese animals. (Binder E,
