Turbo Slim-and just in time!

With a wedding coming up in 12 days, it was important for me to get into great shape. Unfortunately, I was far from it. One weekend, my fiancee watched an infomercial for a program called Turbo Jam. It promised miraculous results through a strict diet and natural exercises that worked all the muscle groups in the body at the same time. The before and after pictures were striking. She simply HAD to have it. Once it arrived, I decided to take a look at it. It promised that if its special jump start "Turbo Slim" program was strictly followed, anyone would lose 10 pounds and 10 inches in 10 days. Well, what did I have to lose? (Pa dum tsh)

And here is Shalene, my coach and mentor. She is a true inspiration...


I actually lost 15 pounds, and here I am on my wonderful wedding day.


  1. Wow 15 pounds? That's impressive. However, despite Shalene and your weight loss, day 5's food looks disgusting and I am not sold on Turbo Trim. Congrats though on your success.

  2. Fifteen pounds in 10 days! Way to go! But I agree with Jocelyn. There is no way I would try this diet! I really impressed in the amount of time and involvement you had with this project. The idea of being completely subject to a crash diet is insane, but very creative. Good job!

  3. Wait... you REALLY lost 15 lbs? Even so, the food looks aweful...hats off for pulling this off though!

  4. Maybe I'm weird, but I thought the food looked great for the most part. Maybe just because there's so much green-- especially the brussels sprouts-- and I've been craving salads and vegetables lately. I think my favorite part of this has to be the exercise video, though. One of my roommates has turbo jam, and I think the video is so funny and typical for a workout video. I like the project a lot.

  5. nice work - yes, 15 pounds is most impressive. I love the amount and color of the photos - just looking at them makes me crave healthy foods. This is one project that everyone should try!

  6. The food looks disgusting...but bravo! Good story and implicating yourself in this project.

  7. How many people can credit a photography class with helping them lose weight? I thought I had heard all the ways to lose weight before, but this is new to me. Detailed and involved. Good job at focusing on all the foods, not just a picture or two.

  8. I think the food looks good. Some of the after shots are a little blurry. Fun idea.

  9. Wow, I really wish there was some way you could have included a clip of Turbo Jam so we all could all be inspired. Great project, but taking pictures of everything you eat for a whole 10 days, what a pain. That's dedication man. And congratulations on the wedding, it looks great.

  10. this is really a good diet.. this blog really helps a lot.. maybe ill try this one ill see if this works for me..


  11. There are many ways to slim. This blog talk about how to have a turboslank. Well in fact there are many ways to do it one of this is proper exercise, a good and healthy diet like the one in this blog pictures about a healthy food that should be eaten and before going to an extensive diet you should consult the doctor for proper diet plan should be advice in you, and be sure to follow your diet plan so that the effect of it is fast and no complication will come.
