About Chris

Hey there and welcome to LeanWithStyle.

Super excited that you’re here.

I know this is going to be an awesome relationship.

That’s me, the creator.

As you can see, here at LeanWithStyle, we take things VERY seriously…

Okay, seriously though, my name is Christian.

You can call me Chris or Potato.

Yes, They Call Me Potato.

I was called Potato (still am by my close friends) all throughout middle school and high school.

Back in 4th Grade, my teacher couldn’t pronounce my last name “Pinedo”.

I told him how to actually say it (pin-a-doe) and he said:

“Oh. That sounds like Potato.”

And thus, my nickname, Potato, was born.

I’m also brown and I was chubby back then…so, that didn’t help.

When people called me Potato, it wasn’t in a “bullying” fashion.

People REALLY called me that.

I can’t tell you how many people during those years came up to me and asked me what my real name was.

They only knew me as Potato.

When I told them my name was actually Christian, they said “Nope.”

Anyways… lets get on to why you should listen to this Potato Head.

I help men and women lose weight, whether it be through yoga, strength training, HIIT, or a combination of all three, all WITHOUT ever telling them to give up their favorite foods.

Why and how on earth am I qualified?

Well, I used to be a bit on the “heavy” side.

This was taken at my high-school graduation.

Told you I looked like a potato.

I weighed 235 lbs then with a very high Body Fat %.

That is also me (below), about 2.5 years later in January of 2015.

So for about 2.5 years, I failed at this thing called fat loss.

I spent two years following sh** advice from magazine articles, bodybuilding dot com workouts, and just straight-up fitness scammers.

I tried many different dieting and training techniques and I know what brought the most results, and what brought close to nothing.

I want to save you as much time as possible so you don’t have to take 2 years to see fat loss success as I did.

If I can do it, then you can too, and I plan on helping you along the way.

Let me know how I can be of service to you by filling out the form below.

Seriously, ask me your burning question about fat loss..

To your success,

– Christian “Potato” Pinedo
