Cruel Reality: The Truth Behind The Transformation Photos

We all have seen amazing transformation photos in social networks, tv adverts and else. It's pretty much obvious that most of them are fake. Here's the shortest possible "how to" for the beginners from Andrew Dixon, a personal trainer from LA.

Shave your chest, do a little warm-up and change the lighting.

“About six months ago I was around 185 pounds and about 16 percent body fat. I was feeling particularly bloated on the day, so I asked my girlfriend to take a before shot. I then shaved my head, face and chest and prepared for the after shot, which was about an hour after I took the before shot. I did a few push ups and chin ups, tweaked my bedroom lighting, sucked in, tightened my abs and BOOM! We got our after shot.”

Play with your hairstyle, clothes and other appearance details to create the illusion of hard work and dieting. Make sure this looks like a few months of training.

“I’m about 200 pounds and 19 percent body fat in this photo series. This took under an hour to produce.”

So, forget about the fast transformations and “focus on a life of healthy eating, well-managed stress levels, quality sleep and plenty of movement.”
