My son is in his 20's and enjoys working out. He worked at a leading health club for many years. The products that are marketed within health clubs and in the body-building industry are designed to "hook" individuals into buying expensive food bars and prepared shakes under the belief that if they use these products, they will almost guarantee spectacular results.

Body-building requires so many factors, it is literallly impossible to achieve maximum results without spending your entire life, 24/7, inside a gym or pushing your body to it's extreme limits. Young bodybuilders are looking for miracle products, and these companies take full advantage of it.

If my son was going to have a fantastic body, he would have had one by now. He's spent all his paychecks buying these products. He follows the Bill Phillips regime to the letter. Frankly, for the amount of time and money my son spent on Bill Phillips and his miracles, he should look like Jack LaLanne or Arnold Schwarzenegger. My son looks thin and trim, but no way, does he come close to the promises made by Bill Phillips, Body for Life, or Myoplex.

Shame on you Abbott Labs.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Maybe you should read the books

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

Before you go online and start writing posts like this.

If your son is spending hours in the gym as you claim, he's obviously not following the Bill Phillips "regime" to the letter. The main premise of the plan is efficiency. No longer than an hour workout. Personally, I've used it to astounding results. It's not a bodybuilding program, however.

But, you'd know that if you had done a little more research.

#2 Consumer Comment

Maybe your son would be better off if HE accepted responsibility for fixing this problem????

AUTHOR: Thomas - (U.S.A.)

After all, these for-profit bodybuilding operations are NOT going to change their practices. So if a different result is desired, then your SON must change HIS behavior.

Sucessful people define their *realistic* opportunities early in life, and then they apply their energy and resources to realizing those defined realistic opportunities. Sometimes those "defined realistic opportunities" are not yet seen by others.... Bill Gates is an example of this.

I never pursued the bodybuilding gig like you describe. I never went beyond keeping myself in a passibly good physical condition so that I could do things like ride road and offroad bicycles, and go kyaking and boating. All the guys I knew in my youth who pursued a bodybuilding gig as you desrcibed here wound up with 'nothing'.
