I met Roger and Sandy Riedinger at the 1997 NPC Indianapolis bodybuilding championship. I was competing at this show as a teen heavyweight. I came in to the competition weighing 200 pounds, and was not nearly as cut as I could have been. At that time, dieting was a mystery to me. My only preparation for a show was to cut all the junk food from my diet and increase my cardio before the contest.
A friend, Tim Murphy, introduced me to Roger and Sandy right after the prejudging had ended. Tim asked Roger if he’d help me with my dieting. Roger had watched me onstage and thought that he could be of some help so he offered to write out a diet plan to prepare me for the Teen Nationals in North Carolina. The Teen Nationals were scheduled for June 27-28, just three weeks away. I gladly accepted. Believe it or not when I returned for the evening show Roger had already written out a sample diet tailored to my unique needs. I then asked Roger to put together some Beverly International supplements to enhance my diet. He recommended just three supplements: EPH, Lean Out, and Mass Amino Acids. I took all three of them.
