Health 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), I 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."
Michael D. Ringler, National
Institutes of Health, Bethesda , MD
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a masterpiece of research combined with
honest, intelligent thought. I believe it will be seen as a landmark 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 effectively.
You should read and act upon this book - it will quite
simply change your life for the better."
Richard J. Marsh, M.D., MA, BM., BCh.(Oxon),
"Superbly written and researched, Natural Hormonal Enhancement is must-reading for anyone interested in super-health and optimal

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 the country."
Arthur Giacalone, Ph.D., Walnut
Creek , CA
"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
Kay Lachowski, Book Review Editor, Online USA
"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
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 contains 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
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 everyone."
Udo Erasmus, author, Fats That Heal

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is phenomenal. What it preaches is absolutely
true. I am living proof of the principles of this book."
Chris Berger, #4 Ranked U.S. Amateur Bodybuilder,

"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a truly great book with more 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
"Natural Hormonal 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, Toronto,
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."
Nathaniel Hancock, Mr. Utah
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.

What Average Men and Women are Saying about
Natural Hormonal Enhancement
"I have been on the bodybuilder version of the eating plan for two 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, Cornell,
"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 Rob Faigin!"
Jill Berrelli, MSW., Phoenix, AZ
"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
John Knowles, Cape Town, South Africa
"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 come!"
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 Grand Unified Theory of Health. At
last, I have found the "Big Picture." Thank you."
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 LIFE!!!"
Steven M. Kip, Senior Director of 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, Baltimore,
"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!"
Joshua "DJ" Olson, Santa Fe, NM
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is a brilliant
book. I have read many fitness books and many recommend various routines and diets but none so
completely explain the reasoning behind it and none are backed by so much evident scientific
Tim Humble, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England
"Natural Hormonal Enhancement is the most
fascinating book I have ever read. I actually sat down and read continuously for 5
hours a night until I finished a few days later (and I'm not a big reader). I have read a lot
about 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 unequivocal enthusiasm."
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
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.
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.
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 myself.
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
Lafayette , LA
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.
