EdgeX Nutrition: Did a Miss Utah Contestant "Cheat" to Lose 40 Pounds in 60 Days Prior to Competition?


The 2012 Miss Utah contestant sponsored by EdgeX Nutrition 40 pounds in 60 days before her competition; raising questions regarding competition ethics regarding her sponsor's products.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 28, 2013

Eating Disorder? Hard Work? Or Something Else?

Lance Armstrong. Alex Rodriguez. Roger Clemens. Athletes and fitness competitors across all major sports are being questioned over their “fitness regimens” in light of steroid and doping scandals. Who's cheating, who's clean, and how can we tell the difference?

Take, for example, the case of Farah Silene Melendez -- a 2012 Miss Utah contestant who miraculously dropped 40 pounds in 60 days before her competition. Her weight loss is also verified by her Miss Utah sponsor here. Such weightloss, though possible, is generally unsafe or un-sustainable according to one fitness expert.

Needless to say, such an achievement in this era of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) does raise suspicions about "how" Ms. Melendez achieved this feat of fitness.

But for Ms. Melendez, the truth is far less controversial and much more inspiring. Hard work, healthy meal choices, and smart supplements -- rather than starving herself or PEDs -- is what helped her get in “Miss America” shape.

National Eating Disorder Week is February 24, 2013 to March 2, 2013

Melendez's story is even more poignant given the timing. As part of National Eating Disorder Week, women especially are being taught the dangers of doing physical harm to themselves in an effort to live up to an idealized body image.

Melendez is living proof that women can not only do the seeimingly insurmountable, by dropping 40 pounds in 60 days before competing in the Miss Utah pageant, but doing so while actually markedly improving their health.

Melendez's remarkable physical transformation is the result of the following simple, all-natural regimen:

  • Sensible and well rounded diet
  • The Crossfit Workout of the Day
  • 2 servings of Balance and NGT Daily

From Feb. 24, 2013 to March 2, 2013, this time is a wake up to take pride in who you are as a person. Poor body image and low self esteem set the conditions to develop an eating disorder. According to the official website, this week seeks to “…..increase outreach and awareness of eating disorders and awareness of eating disorders and body image issues, while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment resources”.

Farah Melendez is an example for all that overcoming one's body image results in not only looking good but feeling good. From her sensible diet to her sustainable workout habits to her choice in natural supplements, she is an example for all that “Si se puede” (Yes, you can), to quote one of our President's campaign slogans.

It is important to note the supplements used in Melendez's preparation for competition include a stack of EdgeX's NGT and Balance--a fat burner and an energy boosting mood lifter respectively. Currently EdgeX is running a special this month to commemorate Farah's hard work on Scoredealz: The “Skinny Jeans” special only at
