    So basically they bought $10 worth of equipment and are now selling it for $45 because they made a scientific sounding web page and threw in a pseudo-science booklet?

    This has validity, though 230 for that is bullshit

    There are books and equipment out there which can help you determine this for much less

    that's what i was thinking, but i don't even know where to start looking

    i just moved to FL a few months ago, and i'm a good 30-35lbs overweight
    (6' 220), mostly butt n gut

    gotta drop some pounds and put muscles back on soz i can go to teh beach, but i can't afford to go to a gym and i don't know anyone in the area to work out with

    used to workout every day back in .mil, but that was 15+ years ago

    This isn't a miracle lose weight thing though... it will help optimize some things... but you can easily lose the weight without it

    Go to a local vitamin shoppe, check out the book for free.. they probably have the alkaline diet or something like that... should have ph strips as well...

    You can't afford to go to the gym but you want to drop $225 on THIS? Get a gym membership, a tub of protein, and spend the rest on food.

    Here's what you're gonna do, fatty.

    1-Spend $1 less on food everyday
    2-Use the $31 bucks/month to pay for a gym membership
    3-???
    4-Profit

    Therefore, Lose weight because you're eating less and because you're burning more calories by working out and gain muscle by working out.

    I'm a genius. :bowdown:

    my old chemistry teacher was like 75 years old and he marked the same answers wrong on all the tests/worksheets for the whole class. He didnt give a fuck and passed everyone.

    Join the gym. If you can't do that, forget about true fitness.

    Of course you can reduce fat by dieting. But where is the fun in that?
