Transformation Diet Plan

by Brad Pilon

I apologize for being absent the past while.  It’s been a busy last couple months, and in January…well, all hell breaks loose in January if you work in the weight loss industry.

It’s that time of year where everyone has made a resolution to lose weight and transform their bodies. And it’s the time of year where the internet is FLOODED with new diet strategies.

Some Crazy, Some Foolish, Some Dangerous…and a couple of gems.

It is also the time of year where all the new Transformation Contests start.

As you can imagine Transformation Contests + New fad diets = Recipe for diet disaster, horrible rebounds and feelings that you just can’t do it.

So, in order to do our part for helping prevent the fad crash diet mess from happening to you, John Barban and I have created a complete guide to PROPERLY managing your way through a body transformation. (This is why I haven’t been around much)

Because I’ll be honest – this is the one time you CAN diet wrong. You CAN lose muscle and you CAN make yourself tired, lethargic and miserable.

It happens when your body fat levels become very low (We’re talking 6 pack low). In this state…you really can mess up dieting.

Consider a man at roughly 5% body fat who decided to try fasting and dieting, while working out 6 days a week and ends up feeling tired, lethargic…and well, lousy the whole time.

What did he expect? Was his goal 0% body fat??!!!

To be honest, I think most of the weird stuff people do when dieting – carb cycling, fat loading, cheat days, crazy workouts -are all band-aid solutions covering the fact that they are dieting wrong.

Really, really wrong.

Mostly, it’s from taking advice from bodybuilders on steroids – you know the guys and girls who are already insanely RIPPED, but still do 2 hours of cardio a day for the weeks before their contest, just so they can be ultra-mega-insanely RIPPED. (HINT- natural people can’t do this, not without losing a little muscle, and generally feeling like they are perpetually hung over)

Look – when you start to get really really lean, things start to change…and this is when you can mess up a diet, especially when you fall prey to the more-is-better mentality.

This isn’t a departure from Eat Stop Eat in anyway – I actually consider this an add-on to ESE for people who want a bit more structure and who are trying to win a contest and want to make sure they don’t mess up during the final weeks.

And since I know that some people just need a tiny bit more structure when they are dieting  John and I have put together a guide on how to do it right.

We’ve called it the Transformation Diet Plan, and it’s based on the Reverse Taper Diet Protocol and the Theory of Fat Availability. Two things you need to know if you actually want to make it through a diet and not feel (and possible look horrible)

Here’s the deal.

There are two versions of the Transformation Diet (one for women and one for men)

They are now available for individual purchase, but only until Friday night at midnight.

The Reason:

Simple, we only want about 500 people tops in on this first round so we can get your feedback and make the necessary additions and changes if need be before we release it to the general public….As you know, sometimes you need to be fluent in “Pilon” to understand me ;)??

So we’re doing a test run right now… and won’t likely put this back out until April or May (depending on how much fine tuning we need to do).

Okay, that’s the deal, here’s what you get…

– You get a very concise manual about how everything works and how to use the software.

Yep, we’ve got some crazy new software, which tells you exactly:

*Your Ideal Waist Measurement,

*Your Ideal Shoulder Measurement,

*Your most Likely ‘Target’ Weight,

*Your maximal fat loss per week,

*How many calories you should eat per day,

*How many fasts you’re “allotted” per week,

*What your estimated weekly change will be

And as part of the first group to get your hands on it it’s almost 50% off this week. The discounted rate is part of the deal on our side, the part we want from you is feedback on how it’s working for you and what you’d like to see added/changed moving forward.

So the deal is you get it for a big discount, and we get your input on how to make it better (and of course you get the new version with the upgrades you recommend for free when they’re ready)

So that’s the offer.

All in all, this is a very COOL product.

If you’re thinking of attempting a transformation I feel it’ll be a great tool for you to succeed.

Point blank, I really don’t care WHICH transformation contest you are in – if you’re looking to lean down and possibly WIN a transformation contest WITHOUT losing lean mass, WITHOUT feeling lethargic and weak, and WITHOUT the crazy hassles of trying to figure out everything for yourself… this is for you.

If you just want to wing it, then it’s NOT for you. No biggie, just the truth.

And, if you’re not really looking to get super shredded…if you just want to get down to being beach ready and looking great then Eat Stop Eat is all you really need.

But, if you’re going for broke and trying to win a contest – Please do not do it without reading this manual first

Here’s the ‘buy link’ when you’re ready, really a drop in the bucket for the amount of sanity you’re getting ready to get back.

SUPER IMPORTANT POINT ==> The software is different for men and women – they use completely different algorithms, so please… make sure you get the RIGHT one.


















We’ve done my best to give you a “done for you” approach to body transformations


PS – Please promise me you’ll read the manual BEFORE you play with the software, otherwise it could all get a little overwhelming 😉

Will this tell us what to eat? Ie, put a sample meal plan together? Thanks dude…

Aleck January 18, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Is it Mac compatible?

Brad Pilon January 18, 2012 at 1:13 pm

No, I’m not ever going to design something that tells you what to eat.


Brad Pilon January 18, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Yes, it’s all hosted you log-in


john January 18, 2012 at 2:00 pm

So how do we know what to eat? Lol

Clint - Crude Fitness January 18, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Nice one Brad – I’ve wondered what you’ve been up to. Congrats!

Mike January 18, 2012 at 5:47 pm


If your maximum fast is 48 hours, does that mean a continuous fast for 48 hours, or does it mean you fast for a total of 48 hours during the week (e.g., two 24-hour fasts).

Also, when calculating the average daily calories consumed, do I include fasting days, or is the average daily calories only relevant to days during the week I eat?

Shannon January 19, 2012 at 12:45 am

Hey brad I have purchased the diet. It’s so simple it awesome haha. I do have some questions reguarding some of the results, is there a specific email we can send feedback or questions to?

james mooney January 19, 2012 at 12:52 am

So all you need is ESE but please buy this “special” diet program….

I have to call BS on that one

Shannon January 19, 2012 at 6:18 am

Where can we send questions and feedback regarding the diet ad the calculations?

Concetta January 19, 2012 at 8:44 am

Is this vegan friendly? Workouts included or nutrition only?

Josh January 19, 2012 at 9:06 am

Just wanted to say it will probably be fantastic and encourage anyone thinking about this sort of thing to go this route. Brad’s stuff is always high quality and well-thought-out. I would buy into this (literally), but post-Christmas with 5-year old twins leaves the pants AND the wallet tighter. Otherwise, I’d test the living hell out of this thing. 🙂

cliff January 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm

hey brad, can you do this transformation diet while doing your anabolic again workout routine and get shredded and add optimal mass at the same time or should it be done in a “non mass building” phase?

Brad Pilon January 19, 2012 at 6:41 pm

IT means you could probably handle 48 hours continously, but as I say over and over in the book, I don’t like people going over 24, but since I know some will do it anyways, I figure I’d give an upperlimit


Brad Pilon January 19, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Yeah, email john with them he’s correlating it all

Brad Pilon January 19, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Why? – Some people ask for more structure, especially in there calorie intake, and since I see a fundamental flaw in how most people cut calories, why no share?

Brad Pilon January 19, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Nutrition only, can be vegan friendly.


Brad Pilon January 19, 2012 at 7:40 pm

I haven’t tried, but I don’t see why you couldn’t do them together.

Kevin January 19, 2012 at 11:57 pm

I was wondering do you have or will maybe come out with a better more commitable nutrition guide that can be used with P90X. I know Adonis says it’s not much about nutrition, but p90x says nutrition is key. I would love to do p90x with conjunction with the Adonis index if possible. Are you familiar with the program?

Josh January 20, 2012 at 12:17 am

I was interested but it seems like a lot of marketing hype. You specify for men and women but the links are exactly the same. So technically it does not matter if you click men or women. To me it is best just to get the ESE book. It might be worth it if the ESE book was included!

dan January 20, 2012 at 9:55 am

Hi Brad,

at about what body fat percentage (for men) do considerations like the reverse taper and fat availability become important?

If I’m trying to go from “fairly lean with a little bit of a belly” to “flat stomach with outline of 6-pack” is there a danger of cutting too fast and losing muscle?

Also, can I safely assume that if my shoulder (or did I hear one of you guys say something about neck?) measurement isn’t going down, I’m not losing muscle?



Brad Pilon January 20, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Dan, matching calories to body fat is the entire point behind the reverse taper protocol.

Brad Pilon January 20, 2012 at 12:28 pm

It’s a ton of marketing hype -sadly that’s what it takes to compete in todays BS on-line weight loss market.

Link is different (27 vs 28) equations are very different.

ESE will not be included.

Brad Pilon January 20, 2012 at 12:28 pm

I’d just do ESE or The transformation Diet plan with p90x

Brad H January 20, 2012 at 12:53 pm

As far as questions are concerned about the Transformation Diet Plan, if you’ve picked it up, you should have an email with access instructions to the AI or VI communties.

Just login and ask all the questions you want under the “Transformation Diet” section.

And LOL on the marketing hype. If you need more structure, this is for you, if you don’t, it’s not. Simple as that.

Jeremy January 21, 2012 at 1:26 pm

If your post is somewhat marketing BS, is this “diet plan” more about water manipulation at low BF levels?


Brad Pilon January 21, 2012 at 4:43 pm


It’s more about the fact that I think the vast majority of people diet wrong and incorrectly adjust their calories in the worst possible way.

– But there is a chapter on understanding water flux in case you’re interested.


David @ The Natural Health Service January 26, 2012 at 6:55 am

I’m always interested in the more technical aspects so this should be a good read, though I’m not looking to get shredded personally.

However any good book on weight loss is useful because there are so many bad ones out there that have people doing completely the wrong thing.

Tom James February 5, 2012 at 8:02 am

Liked the article. More studies has proved that eating often does not really improve your metabolism and hence fat burning. It’s on pubmed and worth checking out. Thanks

Bill Pairaktaridis February 8, 2012 at 6:37 am

I guess it’s 50% off anymore, eh? Too bad…

Alex February 15, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I’d like to buy it, but itis soooooooo expensive. I hope you are going to sell it cheaper.

David February 16, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Ok, I ordered the book way back when you had it for 50% off and after putting it off for a month I finally read it (by the way its good). However, I can’t use the calculator. I log in and it tells me that I don’t have access to “that” part of the site. I logged in with my AI id and pwd. I also don’t see any mention on the drop down list for the calculator. What gives?!
