Authorities and Average People Alike
are Raving about NHE!
What Leading Health and Fitness Authorities
are Saying about Natural Hormonal Enhancement
"Having read Natural Hormonal Enhancement cover-to-cover (twice),
definitely agree with the doctors, scientists, and bodybuilders who are calling it the
most important and revolutionary book ever written on the topic of health and
fitness. Powerful and comprehensive, this may truly be the closest we will ever get to
"steroid-like" results from exercise and diet."
Dan Gallapoo, Editor-in-Chief,
"Bodybuilding for the Genetically Average Joe"
"Thank you for writing NHE and having the visceral fortitude
to stand by the truth when so many
powerful others are contradicting and attacking your views. As someone
who is very much a part of the medical establishment, I can tell you
that things are changing, just very slowly."
D. Ringler, National Institutes of Health,
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a masterpiece of research
combined with honest, intelligent thought. I believe it will be seen as a
in health and fitness literature. Sacred, long established dogmas are challenged
and demolished with argument and experience backed by scientific reference. But much more
than a theoretical work, Natural Hormonal Enhancement shows how to maximize health and
fitness simply by working within the body's own hormonal systems, naturally, safely, and
You should read and act upon this book - it will quite simply change
for the better."

"Superbly written and researched, Natural Hormonal Enhancement is
for anyone interested in super-health and optimal performance."
Rick Hughes, LLB, MFS, ND, former Mr.
author of "Fat Attack"
"I have read NHE and incorporated it into my life over the last
month with amazing results. I thought I was fit, but the information in
NHE put me in touch with an unprecedented physical, emotional and
psychological well-being and strength. NHE is simply the
most profound, cutting edge information
that I have come into contact with in years. I am deeply grateful for
what Mr. Faigin has contributed toward my own health and the health of
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a book of immeasurable
significance and value. It belongs in every household and should be required
reading for every health professional. Never has there been a book of such
sweeping scope and penetrating insight, which advances so many original ideas and holds
such potential to help so many people improve their lives."
Kay Lachowski, Book Review Editor,
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is the best resource in the
world. I personally recommend you read this book."
Peter Klein, CEO, Sports One Inc.
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is the bible of health and
fitness. I have benefited tremendously both in terms of my own health and fitness
and from the new perspective I have gained from this fascinating book. It is great to see
that there are people who want to make the world healthier, not just fill their pockets
with money made from phony information."
Brian Plowman, Certified U.S. Olympic
" I have read many of the popular
health and longevity books. Very few have impressed me. For this reason, I probably never
would have read Natural Hormonal Enhancement had my associate not insisted, after reading
it himself. Admittedly, I picked-up the book with a negative predisposition, assuming it
would be more of the same. I couldn't have been more wrong in that assumption. Natural
Hormonal Enhancement is exceptionally well-written and well-researched and it
revolutionary information that even many of my peers don't understand or don't recognize.
I highly recommend this book."
Dr. Rashid Buttar, founder,
Institute of Advanced Concepts in Alternative and
"NHE explains the way that exercise and nutrition work together to
build fit and healthy human bodies. The author does so with expert
articulation, a good sense of humor, and a no-holds-barred, ‘tell the
truth and damn the torpedoes’ style. NHE provides detail
and clarity with practical application
to sports, fitness, bodybuilding, and health in general, for

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is phenomenal. What it preaches is
absolutely true. I am living proof of the principles of this book."

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a truly great book with
knowledge packed into it than any book I have ever seen---congratulations on an
honest, intelligent and revolutionary book."
Bob Berger, Phd., Ft. Lauderdale, FL
"To be a good trainer, one must first be a good student. NHE
cleared-up a lot of the missing pieces of what I knew from experience was right, but did
not know why. In my opinion, Rob Faigin is the Grand Champion of health and fitness
authors, and his book is truly a masterpiece. I have learned from the best teachers and
studied from the best books, and Natural Hormonal Enhancement is in a class by itself. It
is cutting-edge fitness technology presented in a format that the average person can
easily understand, follow, and apply instantly. There you have it: "The World's Best
Personal Trainer's" recommendation for what he feels is The World's Best Book
for building a better body. "
George Baselice, Grand Champion,
Met-Rx World's Best Personal Trainer Contest
Enhancement is, by far, the most extensively researched, well thought-out, and
beautifully presented health and fitness book I have ever read. Mr. Faigin has
quite the gift of the pen, and the 1700 research references are absolutely mind-boggling.
A real credit to him for being able to assemble all of these different sources of
information into a book that I simply could not put down. As a personal trainer, I am
especially grateful because Natural Hormonal Enhancement not only benefits me and my wife,
but also my present and future clients. Many thanks."
Trevor Beairsto, personal trainer,
"I honestly do not know where to begin my comments about Natural
Hormonal Enhancement. I have never ever found a book on health and
fitness like it that contains so many concepts that I fully accept and
endorse, which fly in the face of my past beliefs. As a college student
who is still on a tight budget, I hesitated to dish out $30 for Natural
Hormonal Enhancement - even though the title looked interesting. But
after having read it I can say with all sincerity that it is worth
10, 100, if not 1000 times its retail price."
Natural Hormonal Enhancement is an excellent book.
I have never read a health and fitness book I agree with more! To get the
most from supplements for muscle building, fat loss, and the decline of function
associated with aging, you should follow the principles of diet, exercise, and lifestyle
detailed in this book. Natural Hormonal Enhancement is the only book I know that
supplies this vital information in one place.

months, and have cut my workouts in half. I have been experiencing steady size and
strength gains, and have no shortage of energy. Your program truly works."
Fred Hornblower, Carson City, NV
"I have read Natural Hormonal Enhancement twice, and want
to read it again. Not because it is hard to understand, but that there is SO much info and
it is so inter-related that it's like suddenly finding you have x-ray vision
and you're able to see through the human body
and it's overwhelming!!!!"
Linda Hinson, Eldon, MO
"I love NHE because it explains everything clearly and cites
specific references. I have already told many people about the book and have urged them to
buy it. I believe it to be very beneficial and crucial for everyone's health. I cannot say
enough about NHE, all fitness books should be written like this. Rob
Faigin has done an incredible job and a service to us all."
Bryan Eckhardt, Cornell University,
"Reading Natural Hormonal Enhancement was like finding the key to
a very important door. Like so many women, I have struggled for years with weight, moods,
and energy, with little success following conventional diet and exercise programs. Natural
Hormonal Enhancement, particularly the Eating Plan and lifestyle modification strategies,
has proven much different from anything else I've tried. It has opened a door to a whole
new world - one of energy, mood stability, and body fat loss. It has improved
every aspect of my life, even my business! I just can't stop saying thank you to

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is great! There are answers to so
many of the questions that have been plaguing me for so long. The beauty of NHE lies in
its practical, hands-on style, backed-up by logical scientific

"With all the hype out there, Rob Faigin is front-and-center with
the best advice I've heard and, more importantly, with what my OWN body
tells me about how it responds to different regimes."
Valerie Bishop, Atlanta, GA
"I was blown away by what I read in NHE. It all makes so much
sense! I have been involved with bodybuilding and power lifting for several years now and
am glad to hear that I am doing some things right and am even more happy to hear about the
things I've been doing wrong....now I am convinced I can fix 'em.
It has been one month since my wife and I started the NHE
program, and already people are noticing changes. For the first time in fifteen years, I
can see the bicep vein poking through again, and I will be 39 in a few months. The fat is
peeling off my wife, too. I'm loving the results and so is she. Thank you for an excellent
book, well written with tremendous insight, that makes sense and does exactly what
it promises to do. I'm sure I will be quoting you to young athletes for years to
Andrew White, Kingston, NY
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement brings together in a unified way
many loose threads that have made the rounds of both the research establishment and the
general hearsay conduits. A marvelous synthesis - congratulations to Rob
Faigin for shouldering the task."
Bob Gallo, Great Mills, MD
"I have tried all kinds of fat loss programs over the years, and
they all have one thing in common they dont work. Money spent on books,
weight loss supplements, energy bars, sports drinks and nothing to show for it
except a skinnier wallet. How long can you stick to a diet or exercise program when you
are not seeing results? At the peak of frustration, I found Natural Hormonal Enhancement.
I can describe NHE in one word different. Different in concept, different in
results. The first change was greater energy levels. Then, just a few weeks after
beginning the program, I could see my abs for the first time! Everyone
around me noticed and started asking questions. I have more motivation now than ever
because of the excellent results. NHE is the best. "
Luke Buckley, Sydney, Australia
"Two and a half weeks ago, I started the NHE program and I am
delighted to say that I have never felt so energetic! My mood is better
and I am shedding bodyfat without effort."
John Thompson, Rochester, NY
"I will be contacting you in the near future about a volume
discount as I plan to give Natural Hormonal Enhancement as a gift to all my friends and
family members. As far as comparing the book to others, there is NO COMPARISON. I've read
books by Sears (The Zone), Eades & Eades (Protein Power), Atkins (New Diet
Revolution), and Peskin (Beyond the Zone). All of these authors and books are ahead of
their time and present profound pieces of the big picture, but they all left me with the
sense that something was missing. A "Grand Unified Theory," if you will. Well,
after reading Natural Hormonal Enhancement, I have no doubt whatsoever that NHE is the
Unified Theory of Health. At last, I have found the "Big Picture."
Steve Mink, Dallas, TX
"When I received NHE,
I read it cover to cover. It was like a John Grisham
novel; the information was so
compelling that I couldn't put it down. Finally, I had a crystal clear picture of what I
needed to do. I've turned a half-dozen friends on to NHE, and everybody is experiencing
fantastic results. Thanks again for opening my eyes. You have an NHE convert for

Corporate Marketing, Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa, FL
"It is hard speaking out against the majority's way of thinking,
and I must confess at first I was a little embarrassed to mention NHE because it is so
different from the conventional view. That is, . . . until I started feeling
better, losing body fat, my sugar cravings stopped, and my energy levels increased.
I think NHE is great!"
Debbie Virts, Fitness Instructor,
"Ive read NHE cover-to-cover three times, and it continues
to amaze me! So many thanks to Rob Faigin for standing up to the misinformation
that has been pressed on average misguided people like me. I feel great since starting the
program, and I have a new optimism about achieving my goals!"

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is the most fascinating book
I have ever read. I actually sat down and read continuously for 5 hours a night

exercise and health, and NHE is the most informative and well-researched book I have
Jon Barrett, Champaign, IL
"NHE is fabulous, an excellent collection of information. I
cant say enough about it. Since beginning the program, my health has improved and
I have lost 25 pounds of fat! You should see the reaction of people when they see
me and ask, "What pills are you taking?" to lose the weight. We are blessed to
have this information."
Ronnetta Lee, Cleveland, OH
"I've been an avid bodybuilder and fitness enthusiast for nearly
two decades. As incredible as it may sound, I have made more progress towards
achieving a lean muscular physique in just over 2 months since applying NHE, than I have
in the previous 20 years (embarrassing but true). Specifically, hydrostatic
bodyfat testing indicates that since beginning the NHE program, my bodyfat has dropped
from 22% to 14% while I have actually gained muscle mass! I am finally developing the
"chiseled look" I've always wanted thanks to this program, and I feel confident
as I prepare for my first bodybuilding competition. Based on the astounding results I have
achieved in such a short period of time, I recommend Natural Hormonal Enhancement with
Jon Ayling, Tasmania, Australia
"I loved NHE. It was revolutionary for me. I have been a brown
rice, wheatgrass juice, and aerobics geek for 30 years, and I have the potbelly to prove
it. Since reading your book, I have lost lots of fat and gained lots of muscle
and willpower. Thanks so much."
Roger Bird, Colorado Springs, CO
"Thanks for a fantastic book! I've read Natural Hormonal
Enhancement cover to cover and have learned
more about fitness in a few days than in my entire life."
"Like many women, weight and appearance have been serious issues
for me since I stumbled into puberty. I always had a tendency to
be a little on the chunky side. My junior year in high school, I tipped
the scales at 150 pounds. Here began a lifelong battle with overeating,
starving, and emotional upheaval.
A few years later, at 18, I became pregnant with my oldest son, Zachary,
and my weight ballooned up to 172 pounds (I'm 5'2''). My weight became a
constant reminder for me of a lack of control in my life. I started
running four miles a day five days a week, working out with weights five
days a week, and restricting fat and calories. I lost weight, but I was
exhausted, nervous, always hungry, and my knees were killing me. NHE
changed all this, and improved my life.
I have been on the NHE program for over a year and have achieved great
success. My triglycerides have dropped all the way down to 70, and my
HDL/LDL cholesterol ratio has improved remarkably. Though I've had three
children, I am in my best shape ever. I weigh between 115 and 118
pounds, my bodyfat is low and my muscle tone is excellent. Thanks to NHE,
I spend much less time working-out and get better results. I'm finally
healthy, with a healthy attitude about food instilled in me by Rob
Faigin's teachings. I no longer suffer guilt when I eat nor do I suffer
from the deprivation I used to with the radical diets I followed. As a
Cajun, food is a huge part of our culture - a source of happiness. NHE
is compatible with eating for pleasure, tailor-made for individuals like
My friends are amazed at my success, and I owe it to NHE. It has made my
lifelong goal of health and a physique I can be proud of, attainable
with relative ease. I am resolved to teach my children what I have
learned from NHE, so that they too will have the gift of health."
to join what seems to be countless others who have thanked you for the insight and
knowledge obtained in your book. I have purchased numerous copies as gifts and recommended
it to many of my friends.
If it helps to spread the word at all, or perhaps proves in some
way inspirational, I would like to tell my story... so far:
As I turned fifty, I was in the worst shape of my
life. I made a "decade" health check appointment with for a complete physical,
blood workup, eye-and hearing-check, the works. The doctor's findings were that I had
adult-onset (type II) diabetes. His recommendation: lose weight, lay off the sugary stuff.
The very next day, the manager/owner of musclemaster.com sent out
a mass email recommending your book, and (I can't even say why at that particular time,
other than that I was READY) the message resonated with me, and I purchased Natural
Hormonal Enhancement. I read the book twice through before doing anything with all the
information I got. On the 6-month review/retest/checkup, I had lost 23 pounds, and my
blood sugar measurements were right in the middle of the normal range. It is now another 9
months after that, and I have lost over 50 pounds, and am at a weight my 15-year-old has
never seen in his life.
My friends ask me if I am done trying to lose weight. The truth of
the matter is, I haven't been trying to lose weight at all for the last 9 months. Simply
adhering to the NHE principles has resulted in the weight loss. Although it comes in fits
and starts, my average loss of a little less than a pound per week is quite literally
"just what the doctor ordered." My only regret is that it has taken me this long
to thank you.
About five years earlier, I had tried the Atkins diet, and found
it very difficult to follow, which resulted in a 'failure' on my part and a lack of
success. The NHE dietary principles, especially in regards to the twice-weekly cycling of
carb-load dinners, makes the plan very easy for me.
Again, I thank you, your associates at Extique and the good people
at muscemaster.com for the positive impact you have had on my life.
Ken Kellerman, Cary, NC
My name is Lyle Goodman and I live in New South
Wales, Australia. I am now 24 years old. I started weight training 10 years ago when I was
14. My primary goal since starting has always been to build muscle. I would do whatever
the gym instructors would tell me to in order to gain. I followed the advise of various
"professionals" for close to 4 years with total dedication and never made any
progress whatsoever. When I left school in 1994, I immediately enrolled into the training
course to gain my Fitness Leader credentials (this is compulsory in Australia if you want
to work as a trainer in the fitness industry). I passed the course and used all the new
knowledge I'd gained to help me achieve some insignificant muscle gains. I followed
through with the conventional approach for a couple more years, mostly being very
conscientious with my diet and exercise (again, in line with conventional theories), and
still didn't make any improvements to my physique. Not only was I following my own advice,
but also people (friends mostly) were coming to me for help with there training (I was
"fully qualified", on paper at least, after all). Very few, if any, achieved
results from the advice I'd given them, so eventually I gave up on exercise (in
particular, weights). I started to believe that exercise only produced results (for both
muscle building and fat loss) for a lucky select few, and then mostly, those results were
During part of that time, I was working as a full
time tennis coach for one of the most successful coaching businesses in the state. I did
this for 2 years. Quite a few clients were interested in developing a dietary strategy and
exercise program. After a little while I started referring them elsewhere because I felt I
would be of no use to them. This was heartbreaking for me. I had spent a very significant
part of my life trying to change my physique and health for the better, and then hopefully
try to help others do the same, but from all of this effort, I achieved nothing. I had no
faith in anything I had learned. I felt like I'd wasted years, and I really had. My body
resembled nothing that could be considered strong, healthy and appealing to the eye. I'm a
true ectomorph, and never had any illusions that I'd become massive, but I did think I
should be able to make good progress. The problem was, at that time, it never came. A very
common dilemma for a lot of people.
I didn't start weight training again until a year or so ago. The
only reason I started was because a few of my friends were going to the gym. I didn't want
to go, but they convinced me that the social aspect would be fun, so I went along. After
only a month or so, the old enthusiasm I had for weight training came back. I don't know
why, because I hadn't made any gains, but with that enthusiasm I started searching for new
info on bodybuilding and health in general. After a fair hile I came across the
"Truly Huge" website. This is where I first came across yourself and NHE. NHE
sounded very interesting, so I did some more looking into it, and after not too long came
across Extique.com. After looking over your website, I went straight to a seller
Musclemaster.com) and bought NHE. That was mid December 2000. The book arrived at my house
December 23rd, I read it during the next 2 days, and started the metabolic shift period on
the 26th of December.
Since then I have followed the Body Builder's plan diligently, and
have followed a hormonally correct exercise program (I stick solely to the basic lifts,
i.e., squats, deadlift variations, barbell press etc which I don't know necessarily fits
in with your philosophy on weight training, but frequency, duration etc does as explained
in NHE), and for the first time in my weight training life, I've been able to gain muscle.
I started the year weighing about 65 kg. A couple of weeks ago I weighed myself on the
same scales, and I was 77kg. My health in general has improved, my energy levels have
increased, and I'm looking really good (if you will excuse my lack of modesty). Just
yesterday, I was doing some clothes shopping, and one of the girls in the store (a
particularly attractive one at that) commented to me on my "beautiful muscles."
Needless to say I felt about 50 meters tall.
Also, another mate of mine last week told me that not only am I
looking much better than I was this time last year, but also I have an "aura of
confidence and enthusiasm" around me. He is right. I really feel that since putting
the NHE principles into practice, and making good, steady progress with my bodybuilding
efforts, my confidence has grown and that's helped my personality to develop. I am getting
results from exercise now, after years without any, and that excitement is transferring
over to the other aspects of my life.
It's a wonderful feeling to know that we all have the power to
transform our bodies and stay in great health. I treat every piece of new information I
come across with healthy skepticism, and NHE was no different. My belief in it didn't come
from some sort of blind faith; it came from living it and enjoying its benefits. I can
really say that NHE has, in only six months, changed my life. Thank you.
With the results I've been able to achieve with
NHE, my passion to work in the fitness industry again as a trainer has returned. I've
enrolled into college to regain my Fitness Leader accreditation. While I am rather
apprehensive about having to re-learn irrelevant information to pass my exams (i.e., the
conventional approach), I can't wait to start working as a trainer and spread the word of
NHE from the inside.
