THE TIARA TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM
2INTRODUCTIONWhat if the best body of your life wasnt when you were in high school? What if the
best body of your life wasnt before you had your babies? What if the best body of
your life was ahead of you just around the corner leaner...stronger...happier...you,
My name is Tiara Cameron, and Ive designed this program exclusively for women because
lets face it: the demands we face are not the same as the demands men face. We have
different desires, different needs, different amounts of time, different hormones, and if
youre like most women, different relationships with food. (Ever see a man face-down in a
pint of Hagen-Dazs because his boss called him out at work? Me either.)
I know what its like to hate the way you look, to want to make a real change, but
to feel totally helpless and demotivated about how to get there. I know what its like
to think that the best youll ever look was when you were in high school. Im here
to tell you its not: you can make a total transformation from
flab to fab without ever going to the gym, without starving
yourself, and without sacrificing real life in pursuit of your
How can I promise all this? Ive been there. You see, I
found myself at the bottom of that proverbial pint of
Hagen-Dazs, a size 14, feeling sorry for myself because
I felt like I could never get back the body I had in my
20s. Maybe youve been there too.
BUT THEN I STUMBLED UPON A SECRET AND I CHANGED MY LIFE: I WENT FROM A SIZE 14 TO A SIZE 4 AND IVE STAYED THAT WAY FOR OVER A DECADE. I TURNED 40 THIS SPRING, AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURE TO THE RIGHT, IT WAS THE PHOTO SHOOT OF MY DREAMS.
3I am passionate about sharing this information with women everywhere. I want you
to have the freedom I have now, the freedom to:
TRY ON ANY OUTFIT IN THE STORE WITHOUT WORRYING YOULL BE REDIRECTED TO THE PLUS SIZE SECTION WHERE THE OUTFITS ARE DECIDEDLY LESS CUTE;
HAVE A PIECE OF BIRTHDAY CAKE WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY;
GO TO YOUR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION LOOKING EVEN BETTER THAN YOU DID ON GRADUATION DAY;
SLIP INTO SEXY LINGERIE AND LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON!;
ANY ONE OF A THOUSAND DREAMS AND SECRET DESIRES THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE ABOUT WHAT YOUR LIFE WOULD BE LIKE IF ONLY...
Ive written this book in eight chapters so that you can skip to the part that you
need first, or you can read it all cover-to-cover. I know how busy women are these
days. Believe me as a mother of three school-aged children, a personal trainer, a
model, and a business woman, I dont have a lot of extra time in my day, either! So
feel free to consume this book at the best speed for you.
You wont find information on how to starve yourself for an event next weekend, but
you will find out exactly how to build a beautiful, feminine body that is trained for
Go, not Show (more about that in the next chapter), and create a strong foundation
so that your body keeps itself looking good and feeling great for the rest of your life.
I would suggest you read the whole book at some point so that you understand
exactly why you arent lean and fit now (and why youre probably not likely to ever
get there if you are following diet and exercise tips from mainstream media), but
if youre in a hurry, jump ahead to the diet and exercises at the back of this book.
When youve got more time, read the rest of this book so that you can understand
exactly how The Tiara Transformation System works.
Throughout the book there are sections marked Tiara Secret. These are the extras, the
little things only your best girlfriend would share with you, that make the difference
between a body thats good, and a body thats great. I want you to know exactly what I
know so that you too are in the know about the secret shortcuts to success.
4THE TIARA STORYLet me take you back to where my story begins. I was in my early 30s, newly
divorced and the mother of three children a babe-in-arms, a 1-year-old and a
3-year-old. I was working full time with no time to spare. I wasnt the model I had
been in my teens and 20s: I was 45 pounds heavier and a whole lot less energetic.
Thats me staring down that cake, by the way. I dont have to tell you who won
Recovering from a divorce is like recovering
from a lot of traumas: it takes a long time, and
its much easier if you have something to focus
on. If youve had something shake your world,
you know what Im talking about. I decided I
needed to get myself back into shape. It would
be my therapy.
I didnt know how to do it at first, but I knew I
would feel better about myself and have more
energy if I could only get back to my old figure.
I never imagined that I could have a better,
stronger, healthier body than I had in my early
20s. I never imagined that the best body of my
life was ahead of me, the way its ahead of you
Running Fast In The Wrong Direction...Like most women, I jumped onto two things right away: a fad diet and a
treadmill. There are billions of dollars spent on advertising diet this and exercise
that and I was as susceptible as anyone. I tried the Atkins diet, and felt exhausted,
cranky, and miserable at the thought of having to sustain the bacon- and-cheese-
bunless-burger lifestyle forever. Try explaining to your three-year-old why youre
pulling the filling out of sandwiches!
I tried the South Beach Diet next, but the minute the very minute my eldest got
sick and required my attention, I fell right off the program. I didnt have the time
to track my food and plan everything in advance. I had a family to look after, and a
single working mom doesnt have a team covering her at a time like that. Something
had to give.
5I DECIDED THAT IF I JUST SPENT ENOUGH TIME ON THE TREADMILL AND ATE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE, I WOULD GET DOWN TO THE SIZE FOUR I WANTED TO BE.
I joined a health club that had child care, and decided that if I just spent enough
time on the treadmill and ate as little as possible, I would get down to the size four I
wanted to be. I spent an hour a day 6 days a week! on the treadmill, and I was
always looking for a low calorie quick fix to boost up my calorie-starved body. I
dropped some weight and then quickly plateaued. I was investing more time than
I wanted to into exercise, and I was left feeling exhausted depleted joyless. Oh,
and my body was still jiggly, flabby, and 20 pounds away from where I wanted to be.
This wasnt what I wanted not at all.
Not Starving: StrongI started looking around the gym, in health magazines, on TV how did those women
get the body I wanted? I wanted to be tight. I wanted my cellulite gone forever!
The best bodies in the gym were women lifting weights, and not the ones on the
treadmills around me or in step class. The best bodies werent starving like a Calvin
Klein model: they were strong. Strong, with healthy muscles and athletic forms.
These women had the body I wanted.
Not Emaciated: Emancipated!It was a Eureka moment. The bodies I truly admired and wanted to look like werent
the ones that looked as though they never saw daylight and certainly couldnt lift a
chair: I wanted to be strong, and beautiful, and a role model for my daughter to
look up to. I wanted to be the woman whose arms looked strong enough to hold
a child, and whose legs could run after her children tirelessly all day. I wanted an
athletes body. I didnt want to train for show, I wanted to train for go.
I began to research how to turn my body into a tight, strong, lean, shapely thing
of beauty. Now, dont get me wrong: I love babies, but I didnt need a permanent
reminder of my pregnancies on my hips, tush and thighs! I wanted to know how I
could get strong now and stay tight and strong forever, without starving, without
depriving myself, and without gaining crazy amounts of weight every time I walked
past a baguette or my son got strep throat. I needed a solution that I could live with
no matter what life threw at me.
6Getting Off the Treadmill... Figuratively and LiterallyThe research was hard to swallow at first, but the more I learned, the more I
understood what was happening to my body, and why it didnt matter how many
hours I ran on the treadmill. I finally made the leap off the treadmill, and I picked
up a weight.
I CUT MY CARDIO DOWN TO A SINGLE 20-MINUTE SESSION PER WEEK.
I started weight training 4 days per week for an hour each day and dramatically
increased my protein intake. I cut my cardio down to a single 20-minute session per
week. It was unlike anything I had ever done before.
To my dismay, my weight actually went up! If I were just using the scale a blunt
instrument at best to gauge my success, I would have quit right then and there.
However, all the research I had done was telling me the science behind what I was
doing was sound, so I hung in there.
Suddenly, something miraculous was happening...even though I was getting
heavier, my dress size was decr
