It's an interesting one. I wondered if that claim was 90% marketing. You know: 'I used to be a FAT GUY until I ACCIDENTALLY STUMBLED across the FAT-LOSS SECRET that I had SPENT YEARS looking for.'
I have no evidence for that claim, but it's a very common marketing strategy to say that you had tried every diet in the book and nothing worked until MYNEWMETHOD (TM) ($89). That's not precisely what he says, but it's in the same ball-park.
He's a big guy with an impressive physique, but my guess is that he was already pretty good before CBL.
As an aside, he mentions that he's 6% bodyfat in quite a few places on his site. That seems an extravagant claim looking at his pics - I thought 6% was ultra-ripped.
