Supplement Secrets True Story
I recently tired to place an ad for the book "Bodybuilding
Supplement Secrets Revealed" in a major muscle magazine
and here is the response I got:
"After reviewing your ad and website, the publisher feels it is
in our best interests to not allow you to advertise with us.
They fully admitted that the only reason they were rejecting
the ad was to protect their own interests. They are saying if
people learned the truth about supplements, the magazine
would lose money. In other words, since they sell
supplements, it is in the magazines best interests to keep
people in the dark about supplements.
I was a bit skeptical when I read the book and it told how
greedy the magazine/supplement company owners are and
how they fight to hide the truth, but this incident and others
like it have proved it to me.

Bodybuilding Food Guide
In order to build muscle and get into shape, it is important to eat the
correct foods in the correct amounts. Your body needs protein. You need
to supply protein to your muscles on a daily basis for muscle maintenance
and muscle growth. Your body also needs carbohydrates. Carbohydrates
supply energy to your body. You also need fat. Most protein foods also
contain fat. If you eat enough protein, you will be getting enough fat.
Protein Foods: Beef, Chicken, Fish, Eggs, Milk and Dairy Products. (Milk
and dairy products also contain carbohydrates.) If you are trying to burn
fat off of your body, you should limit your intake of milk and dairy
products. Beef, Chicken and fish contain approx. 100 grams of protein per
pound. Eggs contain approx. 6 to 7 grams of protein each. Milk contains
approx. 8 grams of protein per cup. Protein foods also contain vitamins
Carbohydrate Foods: There are three different types of carbohydrate foods:
Complex Carbohydrates, Simple Carbohydrates and Refined Carbohydrates.
Complex Carbohydrates: Baked Potatoes, Whole Grains, Rice, Beans and Nuts.
Complex carbohydrates release energy into your body slowly over a period
of time. These foods also contain vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Simple Carbohydrates: Apples, Oranges and all other types of fruit. Simple
carbohydrates release energy into your body a lot faster than complex
carbohydrates and the energy does not last as long. Fruit also contains
vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Refined Carbohydrates: Cake, Pie, Cookies, Candy and sweets. Refined
carbohydrates release energy into the body all at once. You have a sharp
spike and then a steep decline. Refined carbohydrates contain little or
no real food value. For someone who is trying to get into shape and stay
in shape, refined carbohydrates should be avoided or eliminated from your
A person needs about one gram of protein per pound a day and about one
gram of carbohydrates for every two pounds a day.
Example: A person that weighs 200 pounds needs about 200 grams of
protein and 100 grams of carbohydrates every day. These are just basic
guide lines. You may need more or less, depending on you metabolism and
your activity level. A marathon runner burns up a lot more energy than
the average person and needs a lot more carbohydrates. A person that is
overweight and has a lot of extra fat on their body needs to limit their
intake of carbohydrates in order to lose fat.
Vegetables: Most vegetables contain little or no protein and very small
amounts of carbohydrates. However they are an important part of your diet.
They contain vitamins, minerals and fiber.
