ANDREA OLSON
JESSICA ZELDNER

Congratulations to Andrea and Jessica!

Winners were determined in two different categories – percent change in body fat percentage and percent change in lean body mass. Those scores were then calibrated to a 28 point scale and combined with compliance scores to determine an overall score. Workout results were used as a tie breaker.

Both Andrea and Jessica had impressive compliance point totals with Andrea going 28/28 and Jessica going 26/28! On the dunk tank side, Andrea had a 4% drop in body fat and Jessica had a 2 pound gain in lean body mass.

Andrea lost 4% body fat but maintained her lean body mass! Jessica gained two pounds of lean body mass but did not change her total weight on the scale in the before to after. These are very impressive results from both women!

As a whole, the challenge produced some impressive results. Of the 28 individuals who did before and after dunk tank testing – the group lost 126 pounds of fat!

This challenge put a premium on quality food and gave specific guidelines for how to realize portion control that would support weight loss. Each challenge is a little different. What did you think of this challenge in regard to the guidelines and your results as well as if it worked well for your lifestyle.
