Chemically Enhanced vs. Natural

As you might have read in my previous article, Say No to JUICE, I explained my issue with not ever thinking I was big enough.  So I wanted to put these digitals out there to show everyone the difference in my physique when I was chemically enhanced and now that I’m natural (with no photoshop).

The digitals of when I was on steroids were taken near the end of my 8 week cycle. Ever since I had gotten into modeling in the summer of 2007 my initial goal and dream was to work with Muscle & Fitness magazine.  In my head I figured I could obtain this goal once I was chemically enhanced.  Little did I know that playing the size game is not the road to take.  As you can see by the pictures I was still carrying quite a bit of body fat.  I was relying on the drugs to do the fat burning instead of focusing on giving nutrition 100 percent and cardio 100 percent.

My manager at the time, Adam Silver of Silver Models, sent these to Muscle & Fitness and their response was that I needed to be tighter and leaner.  This made me so frustrated because I couldn’t see myself and to me I thought I was good to go. But now looking back at these and seeing my condition I understand why I never worked with them.  Through my short journey in the modeling industry it has been such a roller coaster of emotions and battles.

Now that I’ve obtained a physique naturally and healthy and I feel like myself again, I’m setting out to do everything that I had ORIGINALLY intended to do when I first got into this industry.  That is living a HEALTH & FITNESS lifestyle and to being an INSPIRATION to others and helping those wanting to achieve a healthy and fit physique reach their goals.

  1. The very heart of your writing while sounding reasonable originally, did not really settle perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do well to fill in all those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I could certainly be fascinated.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
