Wes told me that he may disappear out of contact if he was sent away for his work. Sure enough, just before our last update this happened and I didn’t hear from him for a year.
Our last contact ended in a disagreement, which wasn’t pleasant, but as a coach I have to stand firm sometimes and make the tough calls. Here’s an excerpt from a mail that I was very happy to receive a year later with his stats and photos:
“My biggest struggle was after the second month, and hearing Andy tell me to stay the course; he didn’t alter my macro’s. I felt for sure that this was the most crucial time for me to have my macro’s altered. I’m not going to lie, this upset me. I felt that Andy was brushing me aside.
My overall metamorphosis wasn’t fully realized until my friends (Whom I hadn’t seen since I began Andy’s program) were utterly stunned at my new physique. They all asked how I had done that, and inquired as to how much of my strength had fallen off. This was an awesome journey and I try and tell as many people as possible about Andy and Leangains.
Andy you’re a stud. I hired you for the macro’s, and to simplify everything for me. You did and more. You kept me on the right path despite my own stubborn perception. As I’ve already hinted on it, I would highly recommend your services to anyone; your passion and excitement is clearly evident. You have helped me become more comfortable with my body. I now know the proper way to burn fat and grow muscle.”
