I remember sometime in 1996, Muscular Developement published an article in their magazine called, "50 Tips To A Good Diet". One of the tips was to tape a picture of a very obese person (man or woman) in a bikini or swim trunks on the refrigerator to prevent you from eating like a pig. But I took it one step further. I taped a pic of myself wearing nothing but a pair of shorts and I looked liked super ****.
It worked. I trained hard and went from a lard body to a hard body.
