Welcome
The not-so-secret secret to success 
The Ultimate Transformation Challenge is a customized nutrition and fat-loss program that has helped thousands of people JUST LIKE YOU lose more than 130,000 pounds and inches since its inception in 2013 and is guaranteed to help you transform your life.
The #1 reason people succeed (or fall short of their goals) on the Ultimate Transformation Challenge depends on the narrative that plays in their head. Do you believe that you can do this or are you convinced that this program will be like all others you've tried? 
What to expect 
So, what now? You should have received an email from your facility with your coaching assignment and an initial evaluation that you'll complete and return to your coach. Your coach will use the information to create your phase 1 macros so you know how many grams of protein, carbohydrates and fats you'll eat each day. Next, you'll attend orientation where you'll learn everything you need to be successful on the challenge. 
The only 2 things you need to know how to do
1. Count macros
2. Plan meals 
Macros refer to the proteins, carbohydrates and fats in the foods we eat. On our program, we don't simply restrict calories to help you shed fat; this robs your body of lean muscle tissue and slows your metabolism over time and we do NOT want that! Instead, you are provided macros in the right ratios your body requires to build lean muscle tissue and shed unwanted body fat. Be sure to watch this brief video to understand how to count macros. 
Once you receive your macros and know how many grams of protein, carbohydrates and fats you'll eat each day, you can plan your meals. For the first week or two, we recommend keeping your meals simple. The video below explains the 4 simple steps you'll follow to plan your meals, including when to eat your meals based on your preferred workout times. 
We'll be with you every step of the way
Accountability and support 
A good coach can change a game, a great coach can change a life. Get ready to have your life changed forever. Your coach will provide the motivation, accountability and support you need to be successful on the program. Be sure to check in with your coach, even if you have a bad week or don't love your results. They're there to help you succeed! 
How to get the most out of the challenge
To get the most out of your challenge and maximize your results, be sure to read your emails, do the assignments and be active in the Facebook group. Also, be sure to get 6-8 hours of sleep each night, drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day (yes, you can do it!) and get 3 workouts in each week. 
Final words
It's ok (and perfectly normal!) to feel nervous or full of doubt, but you CAN do this and we'll be with you every step of the way. Before you begin the challenge, be sure to identify WHY you want to lose weight, tone up, get healthy, etc. When you tie your goal to a compelling reason WHY you're doing something, you'll be unstoppable. When your motivation fades (and it will), your WHY will keep you on track each day.
