How to Lean Out When You're "Suppose to be Big" or "Genetically Large"
Learn How Pharmacist Martin P. Developed the Tools to Go From Self Conscious to 60 Pounds Down With TKN.
What Is Your Name?
What is your occupation?
I am a recent graduate from pharmacy school and will be a licensed pharmacist. I am going to be a pharmacy resident this next year.
How was your body before Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
It was unhealthy. I had a “football player” body. I was told to be big and took that to heart, eating and lifting as much as I wanted. I ballooned up to over 300 pounds and that was normal for me so I never really even thought about it.
How did that (state of being) make you feel?
I felt lethargic and tired all of the time. I told myself that I was “supposed to be big” or genetically large. These were just excuses I told myself to be able to accept what I saw in the mirror.
What were you unable to do that you wished you could do?
I was never able to keep up with my friends or do the same things they were able to do. When they wanted to go to the beach I was the guy with the shirt, accommodations on car rides, not being able to take the stairs, and being self-conscious of what I looked like compared to all of them.
During that time, how did your current state of being affect those around you?
Everyone knew that I was putting on an act that I wanted to be healthier and just continued a lifestyle of “half-assing” my health. I would workout or say the diet starts on Monday over and over again but they all knew it was fake but no one wanted to tell me or wake me up to what I was saying.
How did you hear about Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
I was a person that was up in weight, down in weight, up in weight, down in weight, over and over again. My friend Tony used TKN and brought me into the fold. He told me it would work perfectly for my situation.
What were your doubts and fears before starting the program?
I was afraid that I was going to disappoint Ben and get in trouble for going off-plan.
What made you say YES anyways?
Tony told me it was going to help me and I trusted him. Everyone seemed like they wanted to help ME as an individual and it was not a cookie cutter plan.
Where is your body/mind now?
Completely different! Mentally I am conscious of my food choices and how that affects me. Since starting TKN I am down almost 60 pounds. I look so different and people are noticing it. Even before I see the results as they do.

How does that make you feel?
It makes me feel great that I have tools now to be successful and I don’t have to call Ben every 5 minutes when an inconvenience happens I can handle adversity and am prone to get right back on track.
What are you able to do now that you were not able to do before?
I can now fit in the clothes I bought because I thought buying them would motivate me to diet harder. I can still go out but I am more active and no longer feel like the “big guy” of my friends that always needed to have more room or wait when everyone was in an elevator.
What positive impact did that have on others around you that you might not have expected?
They all see me in a different light and are more honest with me about my health if I am messing up they are more vocal about not letting me off track.
What would you tell someone who is reading this right now and is unsure about taking the next step?
Do it. You will change for the better physically but more importantly, you will change mentally, and that is where you will see the progress take off.
How likely are you to recommend TKN to a friend?
