Hi Guest
Bodybuilding and Advising

I started to compete in 2009 and retired when I achieved my goal in winning NABBA SA’s Figure division in October 2012 in Durban.

Due to the fact that bodybuilding is very scientific, I experimented with different foods, and by eliminating certain foods, I realised that the blood group diets was spot on. To be stage ready is not just about a diet to lose a few centimetres, you need to be ripped.

I started researching Blood Type Diets and realised that Blood Type A cortisol level is 6 out of ten and Blood Type O is 0 out of ten. Therefore when Type A stresses on stage, the six pack might not be as divined via the water retention around the waist from increased cortisol levels. Where as a Blood Type O will have a perfect six pack even under pressure. The training is also very different. Type A and B train one day hard, then followed by stretches and light training the next day, not to increase the cortisol level (hormone that breaks down muscle). They will have more muscle stiffness caused by the higher adrenal functions. A Blood Type AB and O will perform better on harder training regiment, due to the fact that the adrenal and cortisol levels will be lower. They will secrete endorphins (feel good hormone) and lose weight easier.

To build muscle you have to cause a stress response which will increase cortisol secretion to break down muscle (catabolism) for the muscle to rebuild (anabolism). Anabolic is the increase is size of the muscle. If cortisol levels increases too much, they dominate progesterone’s receptors causing progesterone to decreases and therefore estrogen increases. Therefore the estrogen-progesterone-ratio is affected. Higher estrogen cause fat accumulation and especially around the hips, which is not ideal for stage.


Cortisol competes with progesterone for common receptors. Thyroid gland is also directly affected. All the hormones in your body work together in symphony. Thus causing a decrease in optimal function of norepinephrine, serotonin, dopamine and acetylcholine – the neurotransmitters responsible for communication between your cells
