By cleaning up your affiliate links, rediotus meant you will need to cloak them. People do not like clicking on raw affiliate links. So cloak them using pretty link plugin. Check it out at: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pretty-link/
Adding to the review, on the homepage I think you would do better if you made it a bit more compelling to people so that they continue reading the rest of the articles on your website. The homepage is the introduction page and your chance to tell them what visitors will get from your Website or to wet their appetite for more content that you have to offer. Also from the market discovery part of the course you should know the pains and frustrations of the visitor. If you appeal to what they are missing out on, then they will want to stay and look at your website, instead of hitting the back button or going elsewhere.
I look at the homepage and I see the title and then two bold sentences: "change your diet" and "exercise regularly" which stand out. These are two tips or advice that have been over used in the diet and fitness market. They are also cliche. I think it would work better if you offered something different while tapping into their emotional pains and frustrations.
With so many people creating muscle building and lose weight Websites everyday you will need to be unique and different in order to stand out and get those affiliate sales.
Sorry if I may have appeared harsh, apart from what I outlined above, your doing a great job. I am just giving my advice from the many diet, health, fitness and muscle building Websites that I have created.
Anyway I hope that helps a bit.
