Here’s your new interview with one of the winners from the 12th Adonis Golden Ratio Transformation Contest.
Keith is no stranger to the AGR Systems. However, for a brief period of time he was on the outside looking in. Keith was introduced to us by first gaining success with Brad Pilon’s “Eat Stop Eat” Program and then picking up one of our Legacy Systems called Muscle Building Foundation.
However, Keith later goes on to tell us that although he wasn’t close-minded about AGR Systems, but he was skeptical. It wasn’t until he plugged into the AGR community that the “Power of Association” came into effect for him.
After meeting some successful members in the AGR community, Keith was inspired to upload his pictures and join AT12.

Keith’s Transformation Essay:
My name is Keith and I am 34 years old and my Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR) journey began around this time last year. I was doing a program to gain mass and that’s what happened, just not in the way I had hoped. I was weighing near 195 pounds and buying my clothing at plus size stores. It was the biggest I had ever been, and even though I was excited about the size, I was highly disappointed with the look. I was not “fat”, but I was nowhere near as ripped as the men of the Adonis Transformation Contest. I realized that was the look I was striving for my whole life. I bought Legacy Systems: Muscle Building Foundation, Adonis Index 3.1, Eat Stop Eat, and Anything Goes Diet and I was on my way to my Golden Ratio. Soon, I joined the AGR community, posting pics, and began learning and reaching out to the other guys. This was key!
One of the guys from a previous contest inspired by to join AT12, so I did. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The contest now gave me goals to work towards and a new reason to focus on my diet and training. When I first started, I took a real assessment of where I was at and what areas I needed to focus on. With advice from previous contestants, I was able to choose the program that I thought would work best for me. Next, I started implementing the calorie intake by the AGR calculator and intermittent fasting protocol.
After the first month, I started seeing changes and I was excited. Even though things were going well, I struggled with the AI philosophy sometimes. I come from a power lifting background and I had to fight my old habits of wanting to lift for strength. A buddy of mine kept reminding me that I was going for a look. This helped, but it made me question if I was doing enough. This started me doing 2 a day workouts.
I might have over done it some days, but I was compelled and really wanted the look. By the end of the contest, I was amazed by the transformation. The Adonis Golden Ratio program gave me the body I had been chasing my whole entire life. I have learned so much about nutrition, in regards to how much I should be eating to lose fat, and gain muscle. I now look and approach my training in a whole new way. I have to admit that I was at first a skeptic, but after my transformation all doubts have been laid to rest. Thanks to John Barban, Brad Pilon, Brad Howard and the AGR team for bringing me a program that delivers amazing results!
I enjoyed your testimonial because I felt we had a lot in common in regards to how we got our start in weight lifting. In the very beginning, I too took my knowledge from football players, because they were the biggest guys I knew at the time. When it came to nutrition, I was eager to learn how to build lean muscle. However, when I asked my football coach about supplements and nutrition, he simply replied, “Eat a Steak!” LOL
I’m glad to know you overcame other challenges, like bulking up and having to find the right pair of jeans to fit your over-sized quads. Between me and you, I don’t intend to ever have skinny jeans in my wardrobe. LOL
In conclusion, congrats again on your amazing transformation and we are thankful to hear that the positive association of members within the AGR community inspired you to pursue and achieve your fitness goals!
your brother in Iron,
Allen Elliott | Adonis Golden Ratio Ambassador
