Whey Protein Powder

You may turn to protein powder for convenience, but such products do not provide a biological advantage over complete protein sources that are available in your local supermarket (regardless of what the bodybuilding supplement pushers claim). If you need a protein powder for convenience or portability, I suggest avoiding whey protein powder and using an egg based product instead, since whey protein powders have been said to contain MSG, which may be cancer-causing, and most whey protein powders also add other dangerous artificial sweeteners and additives to their products. Since MSG is often a byproduct of whey protein powder, I suggest using egg based products instead (not to mention you can pay less for egg protein, while avoiding MSG or the additional additives many whey powders contain).

I can recommend a specific egg based protein powder that I personally use for convenience and portability, as the product contains no artificial sweeteners or additives of any kind, and is farm fresh. But please remember that no protein powder is superior to complete protein foods such as chicken, fish, etc (the potency is identical), and should only be used for convenience or portability.

One of the biggest misconceptions in bodybuilding is that certain overpriced protein powders offer a more potent form of nutrients, and thus bodybuilders find themselves spending far more than necessary for protein powder simply because a company claims their product is slower digesting, or offers a higher biological value, when per gram, their protein powder is no more effective than any complete protein food, or egg protein powder. Beware of this false advertising gimmick claiming superior potency, which is used by bodybuilding supplement companies to try and rank their protein powder above the competition.

You should avoid ALL protein powders that contain additives or artificial sweetening (such as aspartame, sucralose, splenda, Acesulfame K, which is also called Acesulfame Potassium, etc) due to their adverse impact on health, and use egg protein powder to avoid potential health issues with whey supplements (if you own the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, you will learn of my specific egg protein powder recommendations, and can contact me anytime with questions).

Remember, you will gain muscle mass by using a potent weight training workout plan and bodybuilding diet routine, with NO supposed band-aid (such as protein powder supplementation) serving as a valid substitute. I have achieved tremendous success (over 60 lbs of muscle mass gained), and am now teaching men and women around the world how to produce natural muscle gains through my MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, without supplements or steroids.

HGH Human Growth Hormone & Muscle Mass

Products that claim to safely and naturally increase Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels are worthless, and if you decide to experiment with illegal synthetic Human Growth Hormone, you risk serious, potentially deadly side effects, as HGH not only reduces body fat level and enhances muscle mass gains, but also promotes the growth of bone and internal organs (including the heart), which can lead to death and deformation.

Therefore, growth hormone is only to be used by those who have a legitimate medical deficiency, and never for bodybuilding purposes due to the serious health risks. Again, most bodybuilding supplements that you find in health food stores or on the Internet claiming to naturally increase human growth hormone do not work as advertised (and if they did, you’d experience the same risks outlined above), so I encourage you to save your time and money.

Again, using the Human Growth Hormone drug is very dangerous, and unnecessary to burn fat or build muscle mass. In fact, I gained over 60 lbs of muscle mass through a proper bodybuilding diet and weight training program, as opposed to risking my life using Human Growth Hormone or anabolic steroids.

Many are unaware that a potent bodybuilding diet and weight training program can actually promote natural increases in both testosterone and growth hormone within the normal healthy range, which is why natural bodybuilders who adhere to an effective routine are able to achieve impressive results without the use of bodybuilding supplements or drugs. Therefore, by following a correctly designed diet and weight training routine, you can encourage natural Human Growth Hormone secretion within a safe range without using dangerous, illegal substances that can cause cancer, organ failure and premature death.

In short — avoid Human Growth Hormone! Remember, building muscle mass is possible through proper weight training and bodybuilding diet techniques, and no supposed band-aid (such as HGH) is a valid substitute. I have helped men and women around the world to gain muscle mass through my MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program, and can show you how to accomplish the best results of your entire life using my proven methods, without any supplements or drugs.

Muscle Tone vs Muscle Mass

Contrary to what most have read in popular bodybuilding magazines and various Internet sites, those who desire a very cut, ripped, defined physique without freaky professional bodybuilder size train identically to those who seek 100 lbs of added muscle mass! Therefore, if you are currently skinny OR fat, producing a lean, athletic looking physique (a “beach” body) is only possible through both the addition of new muscle mass (not large quantities, but enough to “tone”) and a reduction in body fat.

Regardless of what you may have read elsewhere, muscle tone is not defined as mere fat loss, but rather is comprised of small to moderate levels of new muscle mass in conjunction with body fat reduction, as the combination of muscle gain and fat loss leads to the lean, defined build associated with models and athletes. Fat loss without new muscle mass will not develop a slim, firm, shredded physique, but rather a skinny, lanky body that lacks a pleasant tone and shape.

Many mistakenly assume that huge, eye-popping muscle mass will always result from weight training, while in fact proper resistance exercise coupled with an effective diet strategy is necessary even for those who only seek muscle tone, with calories controlling the level of muscle mass built. With the exception of caloric intake, those who desire a lean, model-like appearance must weight train and diet identically to those targeting large increases in muscle mass, as lower calories will prohibit considerable muscle gain, instead producing moderate improvements while consistently reducing body fat, leading to a very defined, lean, athletic build.

So, will I instruct you to train for 3 hours per day, 6 days per week? Absolutely not! Whether your goal is large or small levels of muscle mass, training length is reasonable and intense. With proper weight training and diet principles, YOU can control the level of muscle mass gained and fat lost (through food quantity), meaning any and all goals are possible with ONE plan.

I have achieved tremendous success (over 60 lbs of new muscle mass) through proper diet and weight training alone, so am now teaching the world how to follow in my footsteps through the MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program, without supplements or steroids.
