Welcome to another addition of the Amino Z Newsletter! We have a lot of exciting news and information to share with you!
Jay's 12 Week Transformation Book Released!
I am really excited to announce the official release of my first book, How to Transform the Average Joe in 12 Weeks, in paperback!
Back in 2005, I won the Australian IronMan BodyBlitz Competition, which is essentially the Australian version of Body-for-LIFE. As a result of this competition, I managed to get on the front of numerous magazine and newspaper publications due to my 12 week transformation. Since then, I have had numerous people ask me exactly what I did and what advice I would have for them in their endeavours to undertake a 12 week transformation themselves. So, apart from setting up Amino Z, I decided to write a book which has subsequently now been published. It actually took me four years to write...so as you can imagine, I am very excited to finally have the final version available.
If you are interested in taking on board the lessons that I learnt from both my personal and professional experiences for your own transformation, then I strongly recommend that you get your hands on this 12 week transformation book (click on the link which will take you to our store)!
It's Warming Up...
As I write this, I'm looking out the window and it's a beautiful day. Spring is definitely upon us and soon it's going to be beach time! So, are you ready for the warmer months?
If you aren't happy with your current body, then now is the best time to get started. Now means now...not next week, or the week after. If you are serious about losing weight, then you have to take a pro-active stance on it. You do need to be realistic in the fact that if you do not make any changes to your lifestyle, nothing is going to change.
Think about it this way. In 12 weeks time, it's going to be the start of Summer. It will be warm and the perfect beach weather. If you haven't yet started moving toward your physique goals, how much better are you going to feel about yourself in 12 weeks time if you begin now? You can have that physique but it is your responsibility alone to make those positive changes in your life.
We have a wealth of resources online to assist you in your body transformation endeavours. I invite you to browse around the web site and educate yourself so you can get on top of your goals once and for all.

Tips to Help Avoid the Flu
Nobody likes getting the flu, but the World Health Organization estimates that between 5 and 15 percent of the population will contract the virus each year. Luckily, there are some things you can do to avoid becoming a part of those statistics. Here are some tips to avoid the flu.
Phytonutrients: The Power of Plants
Phytonutrients, or phytochemicals are important nutrients necessary in our diet for correct functioning of the human body. Phytonutrients extend beyond the more commonly known vitamins and minerals and as such are not found in a multi-vitamin supplement.
Obese People Suffer Severe Brain Degeneration
A new study to be published in the journal Human Brain Mapping, found that the obese had eight percent less brain tissue, on average, than people of normal weight. In addition, those who were overweight but not obese show four percent less brain tissue than their fit peers.
Sedentary Living Can Be Deadly & Cause Health Problems
Sedentary living results in an increased risk of health problems and an early death, according to a leading expert in exercise science. Steven Blair, PED, spoke at the American Psychological Association’s 117th Annual Convention, calling physical inactivity one of the biggest public health problems of the century.
Regular Yoga Practice Could Help You Avoid Weight Gain
New research shows that people who engage in regular yoga practice are more likely to be in touch with their real feelings about food – and they have a healthy weight and body fat proportion as a result of avoiding weight gain.
Stress, Sleeplessness, and Illness: A Vicious Cycle
Within the past century, our average sleep time has decreased significantly. With more stress and less sleep within our lives, illness is far more prevalent.
Excessive Exercise Can Be As Addictive As a Drug
A new research study on rats shows that excessive exercise can be as addictive as taking narcotic drugs. In fact, the more excessive the exercise, the worse the addiction.
Boost Your Energy with Vitamin B12
If you have been feeling listless and wonder where your energy went, it may be due to a lack of vitamin B12. A water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal cell activity, B12 aids the production of DNA, supports the immune and nervous systems, regulates the formation of red blood cells, and maintains and increases energy levels.
