Jen Stevens Lost Over 20 LBS., Got in the Best Shape of Her Life and In the Process, Also Realized A Myriad of Additional Cosmetic Benefits!

In today’s world, we are conditioned to believe that beauty should be based upon how we look. But how can you look beautiful if you don’t feel it? Max Muscle is proud to dispel this myth through two revolutionary products, emerge™ and Max EFA™, that will help you achieve overall beauty from the inside out!

Just ask Jen Stevens, who in 2011, found herself in the worst shape of her life. Years of yo-yo dieting and obsessing over her weight resulted in poor body image and a lack of selfconfidence. With the help of some very special people and her local Max Muscle store, not only did Jen find the help she needed, she also discovered these two revolutionary products that helped her reach her fitness goals and achieve all-over beauty!

Getting the Skinny on emerge™
Every year, people make New Year’s resolutions to finally lose weight. But somehow, inconsistency and lack of motivation due to not being able to see results often get in the way of ever realizing this goal. But Max Muscle has your best weapon yet: emerge™, a great-tasting powder that mixes with water to provide a powerful fat loss and body composition slenderizing system specially formulated to inhibit appetite, promote the release of fat from stored fat cells and accelerate the burning of fat for fuel.

emerge™ contains clinically proven weight loss ingredients to suppress appetite, provide maximum calorie burning specifically from fat, increase energy and elevate the body’s metabolism. The combination of selected ingredients promotes a metabolic shift that scientists describe as “fuel portioning” by shifting the burning of fat as fuel rather than fat for storage.

Armed with an arsenal of results-driven goodness, emerge™ also contains a patented ingredient called Advantra Z® which is an extract of a citrus fruit and has been shown to be effective in fat breakdown, thermogenesis, appetite control and ultimately, in increasing the ratio of lean muscle to total body mass. While this ingredient increases the metabolic rate, helping to burn more calories, it does this without increasing heart rate or raising blood pressure. Amazingly, Advantra Z® has also been shown to improve athletic performance.

Jen Stevens of Walnut Creek, Calif. is a believer after losing 20 pounds using emerge™. “I stopped working out completely,” she says after landing her “dream job” in the beauty industry. “My job left me with little time to eat decent meals and I often turned to fast food out of convenience. It didn’t take long to see how much weight I had gained and that took a toll on my self-esteem. I’m only 5’2”, so 20 pounds is pretty noticeable!” She’d tried several fad diets, diet pills and powders in the past that left her feeling “horrible and moody” and knew that she needed help from an expert.

Stevens was on a mission and, not only hired a personal trainer to get back into shape, but also turned to her local Max Muscle store in Walnut Creek to enlist the help of owner, Kenny Tali, to help with her weight loss goals. Tali evaluated her diet, made suggestions and quickly recommended emerge™ to assist Stevens in losing the unwanted weight. She used one scoop in the morning, another scoop mid-day, and then half a scoop in the afternoon, Monday through Friday, for eight weeks. She could see her body changing dramatically as she became more toned. The results were motivating and gave Stevens the encouragement to get to the gym daily.

Amazed by the transformation, Stevens’ personal trainer, Chris Lavado, suggested that she try bikini competitions. In June 2012, Stevens stepped on stage for the first time and placed seventh in a deep field of competitors. Since then, she has competed in a total of four bikini contests, including a national-level show, and now has aspirations to earn a pro card in the near future.

Stevens credits emerge™ for not only helping her lose 20 unwanted pounds, but for helping her get into competition shape. “I couldn’t have lost the weight without it,” she says. “I love how it tastes and that I can take it without feeling moody or jittery or crash from it. I have a major sweet tooth and emerge™ saves me from binging on bad foods and keeps me on track!"

Max EFA™ – Get Your Fat On!
Not all fat is bad for you. There is the “bad” fat that collects on your body and clogs the arteries and then there is the “good” fat, also known as Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), which your body needs to function properly.

EFAs are specific fats that are critical to the proper function of your body. Your body is not able to produce these fatty acids on its own, so it’s necessary that you eat a diet rich in these crucial building blocks to maintain a healthy body. Unfortunately, most people don’t eat the right types of foods that meet the minimum recommended daily allowances of EFAs. But, Max Muscle makes this easy to attain with Max EFA™, an easy-to-consume supplement in softgel form.

“My hair is shiny, vibrant and glowing and my nails grow so fast and are much stronger! My skin has never looked this good and the only thing I changed in my daily regiment was adding two Max EFA™ every morning and two every night before I go to bed. I used other products before and did not have these noticeable results. I highly recommend Max EFA™! You will love your shiny hair and glowing, vibrant skin!”

Max EFA™ contains flaxseed oil, wheat germ oil, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) oil and borage seed oil, all essential fatty acids that will help you to achieve improved overall health. Essential Fatty Acids have a ton of benefits on your body and its cells. They help with cellular development, the formation of healthy cell membranes and regulate blood pressure, immune responses and liver function. EFAs also help with blood clotting and breaking down cholesterol and, the oils from EFAs also lubricate the body from the inside out, instantly supporting the new growth of hair, skin and nails.

When Stevens decided to try her hand at bikini competitions, Tali not only recommended emerge™ for weight loss, but Max EFA™ for overall health. “I like my athletes and customers to use it because of all the healthy, good fats found in the product,” he explains. “The omegas make the hair and skin look so healthy and in turn, feel good about their appearance as well.” Stevens took two softgel capsules of Max EFA™ twice a day, every day. After only 10 days, she noticed big improvement in her complexion, hair and nails. “The results were amazing!” says Stevens. “Almost immediately, I could see the change, but to have other people notice, too, that’s how I knew it worked. I’ve never gotten so many compliments about my skin and hair until I started using Max EFA™.” And, when she’s not competing, she continues to use the product daily. “Why wouldn’t I?” Stevens says. “It’s made such a difference! I honestly look and feel more beautiful.”
